Oh the Insecurities:
If you want to know what I look like: I’m fair skinned with faint freckles, and big hazel eyes. Small nose, average lips nothing special just me. Naturally, I’m a dirty blonde/golden blonde depending on the amount of sun it’s been exposed to. Longer hair and growing. 5’2″. Thick girl. So very thick. Soft skin. Small frame, with curves a plenty, and cushioning bountiful. I’m not an unattractive girl but I struggle with insecurities and I have all my life.
Now, at not quite 25, I am the heaviest, and unhealthiest I have ever been and I am so very unhappy with my appearance and self-worth is below average, and for me below-average is dangerous, because I struggle with self-worth, and confidence, and esteem anyhow. So today starts a new journey. February 1, 2018, is the first day of my first go-round with Whole30.
I’m so blessed that I am not alone in this, one of my very close friends has been on this journey for several months, and human mate is starting this journey with me now. As soon as my sister is self-sufficient enough to be stable and consistent in cooking she will also be joining us on this Whole30 adventure. Then, there are countless communities to turn to that can be another tribe of sorts to get support in this endeavor.
So here’s my ultimate insecurity post, and starting line. I’m walking the plank in my head sharing my measurements and before pictures with the absolute certainty, that this is the last day that I will be stuck in this body without taking another step forward no matter how small some days that step may be.
