I’m FLOORED how many people have sent me the link to this blog post from Teresa Porter. It’s called “So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed . . .” and Teresa is DEAD ON.
Life doesn’t wait until you “get thin” enough to capture it. Life is happening . . . it is happening right now and the only moment we are guaranteed is the one we are living.
I’ve been saying this for YEARS! It was the realization I made 8 years ago when I was pregnant with Ryan. We have to stop waiting to live life UNTIL we lose weight. Stop fearing photos. Stop fearing clothes. Stop fearing activities. Stop fearing life.
The fear isn’t going to go away overnight, but the more you push yourself out of your comfort zone, the more you face the camera, the more you accept yourself and your body for what it is RIGHT NOW, the easier it is to reach your goals.
Losing weight is not the prerequisite to living the life you want to live, it’s the result.
