Visible Monday: Baby Weight
My friend Steph recently lost this much weight:
I recently lost this much weight:
What we now pick up and put down with ease used to be permanently attached to our bodies.
If I wear Farrah picking up Arlo from school or on a hike, the relief I feel taking her off is tremendous; my body nearly melts into a puddle from the release. When I think that I used to carry that weight all the time, doing everything I normally do, I ask myself: Dammit Lisa, WHY AREN’T YOU MORE EFFICIENT? God, the pressure to perform. I will say this however: I feel much better in the summer heat this year. Getting dressed is more of a pleasure. And while I’ve never been camera-shy, having my picture taken now is less worrisome/more hopeful.
I enjoy this process of stepping back and looking at myself. Because I am vain. But it also affords me the opportunity to assess where I’m at and dream about where I’m going and I can tell you with the utmost confidence that where I’m going is to A PANTS STORE. Look at those saggy drawers. That will not stand. I have the ass of a champion and so it shall be costumed and displayed. And I thought this was just what comfortable felt like.
How are you today? Are you feeling Visible this summer?
