Hello lovelies! It's been a little while since I've had anything to post- this Alaska lifestyle has my plate full with other things. Finding photographers to work with has been nearly impossible, but I was lucky enough to take a trip back home a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to shoot some new material.
I've been focusing on learning to love my body flaws as I work on improving myself. Everyone has their own way of accepting themselves, and for me it's showing my insecurities and embracing them through the journey. Now Now some of you will think I’m crazy, so let me put it in perspective- I gained between 20 to 25 pounds in one year. Let's just say I'm an emotional eater, and it's been a crazy year. This weight gain has helped me see that being a size 6 doesn't make me less pretty than when I was a size 2; that doesn’t mean I won’t continue to strive for self-improvement.
Stretch marks, no thigh gap, and a little bit of tummy fat- I still love me. Don't forget to love yourself even if you aren't where you'd like to be.
