So this is my effort at Progress.

I've tried so many times before, but now my life is on the line.

My Name is Rose.

I am 22, out of college and back into nursing school. I am attempting to regain my health for so many reason.

I have a ways to go and it's slow progress, but I'm going to get there, one day and one step at a time.

I recently got married and did a boudoir shoot for my then-fiancé. As much as it was for him, I also did it for myself. Being a curvy girl my whole life has had its really horribly, no-good moments. School was tough, teenagers and children can be cruel and uncensored. As I got older I found out that yes, I too could be loved, even at a larger size. Putting on lingerie in front of a complete stranger taking your photos is terrifying if you have self-esteem issues, but I walked out of there with my head held high, ready to show my now-husband what I have under my clothes… and I encourage all of you to do the same. 

I am absolutely in love with this photo. It’s been one of my favorites from the moment i saw it this week. You look absolutely gorgeous and your words are wonderful. I hope your partner appreciated these photos. Kudos to you for stepping outside your comfort zone. I’ve been wanting to do this but have been making tons of excuses. Time to change that.
