This is a sneak peak into my life & the most important people in it… through photos :) Yay. Who doesn’t love pictures?
Anyway. You’ve seen a picture of him, but I’d like to introduce you to a few of the different sides of the man in my life.
This is my badass Marine pilot boyfriend.
This is him all dressed up to watch an awards show with me, on our couch. We had a photo shoot before hand. He knows how to work a camera. Sexy isn’t he? I love this picture of him.
He’s the most loving man I have ever known. And I’m the luckiest woman alive.
Now to introduce my pups!
This is Jack. He’s staring intently at he love of HIS life: a ball. We are at the beach. He is as goofy, loving, sensitive, and protective as his daddy!
This is our little princess, Avery Jo. She is a miniature beagle so at 5 years old she weighs all of 17 pounds. She is more adorable than she looks, and even more trouble than that!
And now my human, IRL, best friend & soulmate [soulmiffle]:
Caresse. She’s the tiny one. She lives in New Jersey. She’s the one who gets every single thing about me. Not many people can say they have a friendship like ours. As a matter of fact if someone did claim to, I probably wouldn’t believe them. We are long distance & still as strong as ever. She’s my weight loss/get healthy/stay positive buddy. We are doing this together, just like we have done everything else for the last 5 years.
This is the other man in my life, my daddy:
He’s everything to me. And he’s even losing weight! He’s thinner than this now & this was taken back in May at my graduation! He’s the man who taught me how men should treat me. I’ve been his little girl, the apple of his eye, since I was born. I love him more than I could ever say & I’d have him live forever if I could. It’s important for me to be healthy so I can encourage him to do the same, even if he’s ridiculously stubborn.
I’m not doing it for her, but this is my mother:
This was also in May. This is the last time I’ve seen my mother “healthy.” Something went seriously wrong in her body & caused her to lose an abundance of weight & get deathly ill. In this photo she weighs approximately 90 pounds at 5’6”. She does not have anorexia. She now weighs approximately 70 pounds at the same height. She has eaten terribly her entire life & that played a huge part in her illness. Even though she has faced/beaten death 3 times in the last 6 months, she refuses to eat anything green [unless it’s iceberg lettuce… so doesn’t count], or vegetable/fruit related. She is the opposite of healthy & the definition of stubborn.
And as you know, this is me:
Everyone can say that they’re doing it for only themselves, and maybe that’s true. But for me, it’s not. I’m doing it for everyone above, including myself. I’m doing it for my current family & my future family. I’m making lifestyle changes. I’m making things happen. I’m making sure that when I have kids, I’m already in the routine of making things as healthy as possible. I’m making sure that when I’m pregnant, my body is as healthy as possible. I tell Chris all the time to keep himself alive, so what good would it be if I didn’t do the same?
Who do you do it for?
