I am attempting the Wego Health Activist Writers’ Month Challenge. A post each day in April. So, now that I told you I am going to do it, I oughta follow through, right? Today’s prompt is to post a photo and where you were with your condition and diagnosis.
These photos are all post-weightloss. The first two are from before the knee injury that started everything, and the third one was not long after the injury, while I was doing physical therapy for an IT band problem and a kneecap being out of whack.
I was diagnosed about 3 months after the bottom photo was taken.
There aren’t too terribly many photos from diagnosis to now. Partially because I have never loved getting my picture taken. And partially because being unable to run or workout due to the pain, I gained a bit of weight back.
These bottom photos are all from the past year. The top two are the most recent. I decided this year that I am taking my body back. And that I am going to love being me, no matter what shape my body is in.
