“you are so beautiful - have you ever considered modeling?”

—Anonymous

^Basically my precise reaction. Thank you, anon! I’m pretty sure that’s a question I never thought I’d be asked. I’ve got to me honest with you… I’ve considered it, yes, but not modern modeling. I’m no Victoria’s Secret model and I never will be. I do think an article on natural and real life beauty would be right up my alley though. I would love to be a part of a before and after model shoot type thing.

So many times we get caught up in “what we should look like,” and “use this product, or do this workout” to really just have others like us. Don’t get me wrong, I get caught up in this too and have even struggled with my image recently, but at the end of the day, I’m 100x happier than I was a few years ago, I’m healthy, and I’ve inspired people. That’s what matters. 

Lastly, when I first started losing weight, I had the idea that once I reached my goal weight I would do a modeling shoot for myself. I don’t know that I’ll ever do this, but I always thought it would be amazing to have some photos taken revealing skin in a beautiful way. Nothing completely naked or really scandalous, but something full of love and happiness. I hope that makes sense… 

Cinebarre - Date Night.

Meaning we get to order food and watch a movie at the same time. I ordered a pizza loaded with veggies. I’m sorry, whole30, but we haven’t had a date night in far too long.

“what are your plans for after whole 30, food wise?”

—Anonymous

I plan to incorporate what I’m learning and the meals I’m enjoying! But I miss whole grains/my occasional side of rice or quinoa. And pizza.

Finally at the halfway point😎👌I tried bulletproof coffee today and 10/10 did not like it. I’ll have to try it differently next time. I failed to plan ahead with being on campus for 6+ hours so I bought a Larabar and an unsweetened passion fruit iced tea, but they barely held me over. All in all though, a solid day. #whole30 #foodporn

“I was curious as to why you called your partner "the boy"... Is he very young? Does he not have a name or nickname? "The boy" sounds gratuitously cutesy and vaguely paedophillic...”

—Anonymous

Lol, when we first started dating I didn’t want to reveal too much about him until I knew if it was serious or not. I later realized that, “the boy” is also what katiegirlchasesinfinity called her now husband. Jeff is almost a year older than me (I’m 23 and he’s 24).

Day 14 and I barely had any cravings at all! The pho had some noodles, but just about everything else was #whole30 approved. (Not pictured: La Croix and raspberries). #foodporn

Oh hey, just registered for a 10k that’s on Saturday!

And I talked mariahwantsmore into registering, too! It’s the Prairie Dog 10k in Westminster. If any Colorado peeps want to run (there’s also a 5k and half marathon), I got a code from work to get 50% off! The 10k was only $22.50 so clearly I had to do it. 

loveyourselfcompletely and mollyscrubs?? I know you guys were talking about a 10k!! Plus we haven’t met yet. 

So, here’s the thing: My immediate thought when we took this photo yesterday was, “Ahhh, I don’t think this is going to be a flattering angle for me…” BUT HOT DAMN WE LOOK GOOD. Sometimes I forget that I’m not 270+ pounds anymore.

“What happened to your friend doing it with you?”

—Anonymous

My boyfriend did whole30 with me for the first week, but now he’s being supportive and just staying compliant when we eat together! There’s a bunch of Tumblr peeps doing whole30/paleo/something similar, too :)
