You know what the hardest part of posting my transformations online is? It’s the fact that my transformation is reduced to mere looks alone. It says absolutely nothing about all of the work I’ve put in to get where I am at and says zero about the obstacles I have overcome.
Take this transformation for example. I posted this about a month ago and asked y’all to decided based on looks alone which version of me was healthier. I then provided facts about my lifestyle at each point in my life and asked again. Virtually no one thought that the woman on the right was in fact the healthier woman. So either based on looks alone they assumed that the woman on the left was healthier or they didn’t read the full story.
Either way, neither photo tells the entire story. You don’t SEE the starvation, the binging, the purging, the attempts at drinking myself to death. You don’t SEE the tears, the pain, the hurt I caused others and the horrible way I treated myself and my body. You don’t SEE all of the work I put in to get to where I am at. The lessons I’ve learned and the obstacles I’ve overcome are what make me who I am today.
I am a strong ass woman! I’m more confident than ever before and I’m ready to take on the world. I run with a fire in my soul and am determined to help others and lead them to a healthier and happier future. Often times it’s what we don’t see that is truly the most important. Don’t EVER judge a book by its cover. If you or someone you know is struggling with their worth and self image my inbox is always open.
