Reflected truths (Part 1)

I'm online a  lot more than usual right now trying to get Girl.Body.Pride up and going for the official launch on August 1. The tricky part is that I'll be at their airport at 3:30 a.m. on July 31 and flying out of Tucson at about 6:30 a.m on August 1, which makes my timing pretty shitty. It will all be worth it in the end, though. GBP is something that I think has been building itself in my brain for a while now, and it's finally time to make it a reality. The funny thing is that while I've been working my ass off trying to secure sponsorships for the site, recruiting some pretty fucking awesome writers who have graciously committed to serving as regular contributors, and even more kick ass writers willing to grace the pages of GBP as featured guests with their words, thoughts have been already started shifting. Women have been celebrating their post baby bodies and encouraging others to do the same.

No Airbrushing.

No computerized perfection.

I even answered this call for women willing to show their faces and their post baby bellies with a photo of my own.

But then I wonder if I would have taken the picture and been so willing to post it before I lost the 40 pounds I never announced because I didn't know the number until my nurse practitioner told me at my last visit and which I have been obsessing about ever since. Would I have done it when I had a huge belly pooch even when I was sucking it in?

Probably not.

So maybe there is still work to be done.

We launch August 1.

Will you join me?
