I'd better warn you now that I'm not actually going to show you any photos from "the photo shoot" I had today. I know. What a tease. But I can assure you that you will see at least one of the photos very soon :-) This is all part of my new blog that is currently being thought out and put together. To say I'm excited would be a crazy understatement. Today was a lot of fun and I was proud of how I can look at the photos and feel good about myself. I'm not too concerned about the extra squishy bits here and there; instead I can look at the photos and know that my body can do a lot, and is doing a lot for me right now, and that I rely on it every second of every day. And that it's doing a pretty damn fine job.
I'm slowly learning, after so many years, that I have to be happy with how I am "now" if I am to be the best I can be. Yes I'd like to lose some weight, but that's because I want to be able to move more without feeling out of breath; I want to (ready for the cliche?) keep up with my kids; I want to feel more confident in less clothes. But in the mean time, I'm getting to be more happy with just being me. If nothing changed for the next 10 years, I want to be able to be happy with that.
I'm getting there, slowly.
