In Which I Pick a Favorite

Sunday, May 19, 2013

God, I am really failing at actually blogging EVERY DAY lately. Yesterday, I just totally forgot to post for a second time. I thought that I would be able to post something really quickly and easily, since "all I had to do was post a picture of myself that I liked". This turned out to be harder than I thought it would be... and not because there are just so many pictures of myself that I like. Quite the opposite. Even my wedding photos, which are some of my favorite pictures ever, make me cringe because I generally can't stand photos of myself. I have always had issues with my body image and low self-esteem. I struggled with disordered eating in high school, and still have a tenuous/not-entirely-healthy relationship with food. Over the last year and a half, I lost 40 pounds after finally discovering that I had PCOS and hypothyroidism, and once I got correctly medicated, I was able to get back to a pseudo-normal weight. I still have about 20-25 pounds to lose before I am at my goal weight, but I no longer feel the need to get undressed in the dark, essentially. Anyway, all that to say, looking through all of my pictures to find one that I liked was a little tough. In the end, I went with some of my wedding photos because it was really one of the happiest days of my whole life. I got to marry one of my best friends, surrounded by our favorite people. Also, I felt pretty that day, and that's a rare occurrence. So... here are my favorite photos of myself:

All of our photos were taken by the amazingly talented, wonderful, Katie Jane of Katie Jane Photography. Check out everyone else's favorite photos of themselves over at the link-up!
