Body Image – Flaws & All
I’ve been thinking about this post for quite some time. After shooting some videos recently and looking back at myself through a different lens, the opportunity seemed right.
Do you ever have those moments when you walk by a mirror, or see your reflection in a window and you think, “Holy crap! Is that me? Is that what I really look like?”
Please…tell me I’m not alone in this, because the vision I have of myself from the inside out is far more youthful than the one I frequently see reflected back at me.
These last 25 pounds that I dropped had a dramatic effect on my body. My boobs reduced from a DD to a C cup (a welcomed change) and some sun damaged and not so taught skin started to show up in places where they hadn’t been visible before –the inside of my biceps and the inside of my legs. I’m getting a little bit of that “hangover flesh” just above the knee. If I stayed a little heavier, it wouldn’ be so noticeable, but hey, I’m not about gaining weight to lose some wrinkles.
