For a little backstory here…I have battled with my weight my whole life. I yo-yo dieted for a long time, until I decided to take things into my own hands and change my lifestyle for good. You can hear more about that in my podcasts HERE.
I was so insanely excited that Women’s Health magazine reached out to me on my INSTAGRAM to feature me and my weight loss. After weeks of the interview process, a photoshoot was scheduled. But tvgb vhen it was cancelled last minute with no real explanation. From that, I was honestly amazed by the outpouring of support of people suggesting I do my own photoshoot anyway.
A HUGE thank you to Carly who jumped on board and offered to take these photos for me. As you can see, she did a really amazing job! If you’re looking for a phenomenal photographer, find Carly HERE. Also a huge thank you to the YMCA for allowing us to do the shoot at the downtown location. I also had to have a delicious cheat meal to wrap it up! Life is all about balance!
For me personally, this is so much more than just a photo shoot. I mean…I look at some of these photos and can’t believe it’s me. It helps me take a step back and actually see what I’ve accomplished. These photos are proof that you can accomplish what you set your mind to. I never thought I could really change myself for the better for good. And here I am. My hope is that if you’ve ever had the same struggles, that this can help prove to you that you can do it too.
