It's not what you think! It was one time... for art class. Yeah, art class. Really!
All joking aside, what I did do, is join the Exposed Movement. All too often people look in the mirror and hate what they see. Maybe it doesn't match what's in your mind. Maybe it doesn't match what you're reading or seeing on television. Maybe it's just not where you wanted to be. We pick ourselves apart until there's nothing left of our self-esteem.
The Exposed Movement began as a post on Eating Journey's blog and has gained some serious momentum. The premise is simple: we should love our bodies and celebrate them. So I am, in a very public manner. After all, dear readers, I am now accountable to you.
We may not all be where we'd like, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate ourselves at the moment. Me, I'm pretty happy with my strength and my endurance. Things I didn't know I possessed until I started Boot Camp. I'm happy I see changes with every week and every camp. I've lost 55 pounds in a year. I've lost over 10 inches in my hips and waist each and a few more everywhere else, and I've gone down over 4 pant sizes.
I'm proud of where I am *right now*. I'm not done by a long shot, but I'm happy to celebrate my accomplishments. It may not be a supermodel's body, but it's mine.
