One More Day!
I have one more full day before surgery. I am excited and nervous. I am as ready as I will ever be.
This weekend I did a really fun and exciting photo shoot with a great photographer, Ben DeFlorio. He is doing a project called Create 28. He asked for volunteers and he would let us do whatever we wanted.
I wanted a “before” photo shoot. But not just any “before” photo shoot. I wanted one that showed that I was confident and strong with who I was but also portrayed my “struggle” with my weight. I chose to use a heavy chain to wrap around myself to show how I am quite literally and figuratively weighed down by my weight. As the shoot went on I “broke” free from the chains. At the very end I was in a tank top and leggings and holding an apple and ready for new beginnings. While I don’t have any shots showing the tank top and leggings and new beginnings yet, I will share them when I can.
Here is another shot from the shoot.

Be sure to check out the links to check out Ben’s project and all his other work. He truly is a great artist and photographer. I will try to post later this week after surgery.
Thank you all for being a part of my journey this far! The best is yet to come!
