This shot of me is from 2009.
I was a size 28 at the time. I was coming down from a size 32 after five months of high dose corticosteroid use and a month in the hospital.
No photoshop… just posing, working the clothes and finding my light.
Even when my body wasn’t being kind to me… I did my best to love it and celebrate those times, too. Accepting my size and accepting that I was going to change and my body would evolve was part of healing.
I’m dealing with my body evolving again… which is frustrating sometimes… because I wish it would speed up the process already!
So, it helps to look at these photos and remember that I can be beautiful at any size/shape/health. It helps me to accept myself and accept the journey.
(You may repost this without the message… I just wanted to share this with the Tumblrverse because I know that there are some gals out there on steroids who are struggling with the buffalo hump and moon face. I just wanted you to know that you’re beautiful… and you aren’t alone!)
