RAWR girl. I love this :) I haven't done that personally, but I think it's something I'd think about for the future. You're a brave, brave gal.

Marisa's one of the sweetest bloggers I know, and it's been amazing to watch M become quite a young lady in her own right.

As far as being comfortable in your own skin, I think this is one of the best goals you could possibly set for yourself. About 75% of my blogging friends/readers are women in their twenties, the rest are either teens or at various later stages in life. Without exception, EVERY woman who has opened up to me during private conversation has said there's something about her appearance (usually her body) that she'd like to change. It's an epidemic, perpetuated by the influence of media and...well, I don't want to rant but I'm sure you get where I'm going with this.

Speaking as a man and not a blogging friend I can very comfortably say that you're gorgeous Micaela, I've always thought so. And I'm proud of you for making the decision to take some boudoir pics. Regardless of whether you hit your goal to be a certain weight or look a certain way I do hope you'll go ahead with your photo shoot. I promise you'll feel better for having done it, even if it's just you and hubby who will see the results.

Happy New Year and may all your hopes come true.

I have! Whats funny is I have at a lot of different weights too. Lately I have been wanting to have a photographer do them for me... to remind me that even at my current weight, which is the largest I've ever been and far larger than I ever thought I'd be, I am sexy. I don't have the money for it so it isnt about to happen right now... but maybe I need to do my hair and make up and start taking my own again.. its been a few years.

The crazy thing is to look back at photos of me when I was skinny and super muscular and think about how uncomfortable I was with my body then. How silly of me... I should have enjoyed it while I had it! ha.

barry, thank you for your kind and well said words. YES about our girl Marisa. <3 and what you said about weight struggles and how we see ourselves is a sad truth. / thank-you for our encouragement on said saucy resolution! lol you were just the inspiration i needed!

phoenix, you ARE sexy! ;) and feeling it is half the battle of feeling beautiful isn't it? i know EXACTLY what you mean... i look back at photographs where i actually was in fact skinnier than i am now and yet i didn't know it or realize it. It wasn't enough then-- oh to have enjoyed it now! Haha you said EXACTLY what i was thinking lol that's where i am starting... taking some myself. let's do this! :)
