I'll be honest. I'm not going to show you how I really look.
Hopefully the day will come that I'll feel comfortable enough to show full body shots (shudder in horror)... but that day is not today.
For now, I will LEAP out of my comfort zone (oh how I love you, sweet comfort zone!) and show a pic that I would N EEEEEEEE VER have posted to the world before... a shot that doesn't cover half my face (and chins) like I typically post (like the upper left shot).
I've become a master at blogging only pics in which something or someone is "coincidentally" in front of part of me. The camera covering my double chins, the kids on my lap hiding the tummy rolls... you get the idea.
I will admit that this picture is over a year old, too, and I have gained weight since then. But this is the best I can do today. And I take this giant leap into uncomfortable land ONLY in an effort to BE REAL and to prove to anyone out there who shares my battle with weight that I really am in the trenches beside you.
Stay tuned for *possible* further leaps into transparency if I can ever muster the nerve.
Comments and support would help move that process along by the way!!!! :)
