exposed

7:28 AM Posted by Roo

I had never heard of the Exposed Movement until a week or so ago when a few Shrinking Jeans friends were chatting about it on Twitter. I jumped in and asked what it was and just as quickly jumped out of the conversation. Cause I did *not* want to go there.

The Exposed Movement started in October 2009 with this post by Mish at Eating Journey. She followed it up this year with a page on her blog dedicated to this movement. At the time I'm drafting this post, there are 106 people that exposed for the first time this October (not including me...yet). WOW.

So what's the big deal with exposing myself? I took the pledge to love myself and while I am doing my best to love myself sometimes actions speak louder than words. This is the biggest reason I am doing this. To love myself NOW. To embrace myself NOW. Not when I lose 50 pounds, not when the time is right in the future. Because the time is right NOW. Today. October 19, 2010.

So here I am, exposed...

    Audrey! I'm so proud of you! And, seriously, I love your smile, because I couldn't even muster one. And you're gorgeous - even with the back/hip that's revolting against you. (please hip/back be nice so I can finally meet Audrey in person. Please!?!)
