A Letter To My Body

I wrote a letter to my body, it’s been a long time coming and well deserved. I spent almost two decades hating her and putting her down. It wasn’t until I decided it was time to make myself a priority and heal from trauma that I began to heal my relationship with her. This letter was long overdue and I owed her an apology.

We are meant to feel and love all of our pieces

I’ve spent decades fighting to hold back emotions and I’ve gotten to a place of acceptance when they come up. We are meant to feel, we are meant to emote, and I’m grateful to no longer feel shame or the need to apologize when I get emotional. Being human means we feel, we emote, and all of it is beautiful no matter how messy. Self-love isn’t just loving your body or your “good” pieces, it’s about loving all of your mess.

I Got A Glimpse In The Mirror Today...

There was a time not that long ago that I never thought I’d shed the extra weight I’ve carried due to sexual trauma but that time has come. I’m just 10lbs away from being out of the 200lb club and I’m feeling amazing! Not because of the number, but because I’m taking back my power and shedding the weight so I can live a long and healthy life, a lighter life. This transformation has been a very personal and intimate journey for me and as a result of the healing I’ve done it’s all coming together. I’m reclaiming my self as whole and revealing more of myself each and every step of the way.

Celebrate the journey!

I’m 36 days into my weight loss journey and closely approaching the 20 lbs down mark [like literally ounces away]lol. Often I’ve had a tendency to focus on the destination and forget to celebrate the journey. 

So I wanted to take a moment to do just that. This has been a long road for me. It started with 100lb weight gain after sexual trauma in my early twenties. I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin and spent over a decade hating my body yet living like everything was just fine. Until it wasn't.

Are you brave enough to be who you are?

I've spent much of my life hiding my voice, hiding who I really am, and hiding in my body. This is ironic because, after my weight gain, it was harder to hide. I've been hiding my emotions, hiding the fact that I'm sensitive hiding that I'm strong hiding in front of the camera, as well as, behind the camera. Truth is I'm tired of hiding and even more tired of playing small...

Did you have body image issues as a little girl? I know I didn't...

We aren't born with body image issues. We don't just come into this world hating ourselves and our bodies, in fact, I remember loving my body when I was little. I'd dance, swing my arms and legs in funny directions wiggling all over the place and never thought, gee my fat sure jiggles a lot! No, I celebrated myself and my body. It wasn't until I got into end of elementary into middle school that I became aware of "what others" saw as what was wrong with my body. It all starts with...
