Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

new lululemon: groove shorts and stuff your bra bra
YES I WAKE UP LOOKING THIS GOOD heh heh heh
(I’m so tempted to wear just this to the gym because I feel the shorts are a vaguely more appropriate length for pairing with midriff-baring tops than compression shorts)
Total weight loss so far: 71.5 lbs.
Follow me and my journey towards health. What a difference a year and a half can make! I’m committed to eating clean, working out, and finally feeling like I’m living my life to the fullest.
