I know the first time I saw that pic, I thought it was a new girl. Then I recognized the name...literally did a double take! She is really my inspiration here...

this is one of those "hmm, if I am TOO complimentary about the new picture, am I saying something bad about the old one?"

personally, I love the new look - the other picture was good and you looked very pretty, cfmama. But this one is all about your natural beauty and that healthy radiance shining through.

You are gorgeous, cfmama. Hubby has commented when passing by and seeing your avatar on my screen too. He saw you and said you were a cutie and then looked at your ticker and went "wow, I'm impressed".

agreed!

you are one stunning mama, cf.

People that did not know me when I was heavy, should they happen to see a photo of me, they argue with me that there is no way that that was me.

I hope no one gets offended by this, but it's just amazing how the fat masks and distorts us.. even more amazing how we can change our bodies and reverse the damage - and boy oh boy cfmama, have you ever done so! you are one incredible chickie!

talking about the fat distorting us... there really is NO other word for it is there? I always used to get the "you are so pretty... but..." or "if only you'd lose weight you be so pretty..." and I was so offended... but I get it now.

Because now you can see the REAL me. The me I am inside :)

Instead of the former me... that shadowed who I really was...

I have to admit, every time I pass a post of yours, I stop and stare at your av for a second. You are quite beautiful and inspiring. I hadn't seen your before, so thank you for sharing. I agree that you were always pretty, but now you glow! :) I hope I can glow someday...

-edit- I feel like such a ditz, but in case you ever re-read this, I had seen other before pictures, I just didn't recognize you! lol

from dictionary.com:

dis·tort·ed
   /dɪˈstɔrtɪd/ Show Spelled[dih-stawr-tid] Show IPA
–adjective
1.
not truly or completely representing the facts or reality; misrepresented; false:

Lots of other thoughts run through my head when I now look at the rare before photos of me. Like how could I do that to myself? Why would I choose to live that way? Why is this woman so sad?

But one singular word that keeps popping into my head is that I look - distorted. Almost maimed. I know that it's me, but, but, but.... it is very disturbing.

It is hard to put into words. When I look at that picture what comes to mind is her direct look of determination, but I also see a kind of fragile awakening...and in the eyes, a sense of wonder.

You amaze me. Every time. Such an amazing journey and we all get to see it. I hope you feel as amazing as you look...and I'm sure you do.

There are so many stories of hard work. I love to see all the transformations. I've heard that line " You'd be so pretty if you just lose the weight." That comment is really a hit to the gut, but if it makes you get your butt in gear and do something better for yourself than I guess it was worth hearing. Congrats to you Mama.You look terrific!
