I Feel Like a Star!
Saturday, March 19, 2011
I had the most amazing day! As a reward for having lost over 100lbs. I scheduled a professional photo shoot with a very talented photographer. Traci is also a friend and was my running coach for my first half marathon. I learned so much from her. But today I love and respect her even more. She stepped out of her usual studio shots and helped to capture some of the best 'fitness' style photos. She made it fun! I felt relaxed, even when showing more skin that is less than perfect.
I feel radiant. I feel healthy. She did an amazing job of capturing both of those feelings and so much more. She sent me a little preview picture tonight. Before she sent the picture, she asked me if I wanted them edited to remove stretch marks on my tummy. I told her that unless she had some magic that could erase the real ones on my body to leave the photos untouched. Call me crazy. But they are part of who I am. I can't hide them.
I think she did an amazing job! Whatya think?
