Guest belly #2
"I remember the first time I realized I was fat. I was five years old. I've always struggled with my body image... through childhood, pregnancy, and eating disorders, my belly has always been my enemy. I never thought I'd have the courage to embrace it enough to actually take this picture and share it with the world.
I just got back from yoga when I read The Belly Blogs's request for a guest belly. Yoga helps me appreciate my body. Every day I roll out my matt I know I'm doing something positive and healthy for myself. This is my yoga belly."

Teresa wrote this to accompany the picture of her yoga belly. You have a beautiful belly Teresa! I was sad to read your struggles started so young. And I am so grateful for your courage and I am honored to have your beautiful belly on my blog. I love you.
Here is my belly for the day. I was thinking about a drawing I did that I gave Teresa with two figures peeking out from behind tomb stones. I went to the cemetery to take this picture. I like to consider this a symbolic gesture to once and for all, bury all the negatives and embrace our beautiful Goddess bodies.
