For FearLess Friday this week I am going to do two brave things:
- Make something with parsnips (requested by Big P after he saw them on Curious George)
- Post ‘before and after’ photos of myself
There’s a catch with my ‘before and after’ pictures: I will only post if I can get 100 more likes on the Don’t Panic, Mom Facebook page. There is power in community. That’s the big idea behind Don’t Panic, Mom. You don’t feel like such a weirdo making healthy changes when you’re part of a group. Here’s a fun way to build our community.
I got the idea to post ‘before and after’ pics when I was watching a ridiculous commercial for a home workout system. I absolutely LOVE to see healthy transformations. I certainly don’t have a six-pack. But after three pregnancies and lots of work, I finally feel comfortable in my skin. Stretch marks and all.
I will show my heaviest point in 2008 and my current healthier and happier state. Initially I thought it would be embarrassing to show my super chubby photos. However, my vulnerability is win-win. You’ll either think:
“Phew! I’ve never been that big!”
“If she can do it, I can do it!”
Either way, you’ll feel good.Send your friends over to the Don’t Panic, Mom Facebook page right away!
