After four long years of hard work I finally hit my pre-pregnancy weight and decided to step way out of my comfort zone today to celebrate that accomplishment.
Thank you Tessa for so beautifully capturing the journey of self acceptance that I have walked through. I have lost 134 pounds from my highest weight and grown and nursed two beautiful children.
My body is “flawed." I have cellulite and extra skin and bat wings and fat rolls and stretch marks. I haven’t felt fully rested in almost three years and my daily stress is apparent in the bags under my eyes and the wrinkles on my face.
My bat wings and extra skin remind me of ten years of strength and determination in reaching my fitness goals. My stretch marks remind me of my body’s incredible ability to bring forth new life. The bags under my eyes are from bittersweet long nights while cuddling a precious baby. My cellulite is from girls’ nights and birthday parties and special dates and weddings and ice cream sundaes with my kids. It’s a badge of honor from my tribe of foodie friends that I am blessed to walk with through this life.
My wrinkles not only show that I am a worrier but that I love deeply and care wholeheartedly for others in my life. My value is not in a number on a scale or a letter (or two) on a clothing tag. This body represents a life well lived and a woman well loved.

Bring your wildest expectations. Uncertain of what to expect? That's ok too!
It may sound boastful, maybe even too good to be true.
But you'll never know if it's true for you too until you say hello.
