Yesterday’s Fab Fest was larger than life. To see 400 women excited and dressed in pink ready to work all day to support Bright Pink was an awesome thing.
The most honest moment of the day came with Giuliana broke down while addressing the crowd, it was a 100 percent real moment and I think to many of the girls she went from being a “celeb” to just like one of the group. Got to love her for cracking jokes even through the tears.
It’s so awesome to see how the event and how I’ve changed over the years.
A few people gave me the ultimate girl code statement: “You look great”, which basically means “You look skinny” or “You’ve lost weight”. And a few asked how I lost weight. Mexican diet pills- duh. KIDDING. I shared what’s been working for me lately- a combo of hot yoga, Flywheel spin and juicing here and there.
But i didn’t realize how different I look until I pulled up pics from Fit Fest 2010.
Listen, I realize everyone has a different perception of what is attractive, thin, fat, curvy, etc and I don’t want to come across as insensitive to any female who is trying to lose a few lbs or even worse- insult those who love their curves.
That said….GOOD LAWD. I look at those photos and don’t remember feeling like I looked heavy, but I do remember that’s when I was drinking too much, eating too late, hated the fact I cut my hair off and wasn’t happy overall.
Here are a couple photos from yesterday- the first is of me with G and founder Lindsay Avner (courtesy NBC) and the second was snapped by my camera friend Daniel Tomei- we liked the pink flowers at the Four Seasons.
Even though I was sleepy and it was early, I think I look healthier and happier than I did two years ago… and I’m thankful for those in my life who keep a smile on my face.
*side note- HI to the awesome girl I met who told me she reads my blog…I blushed and acted weird- but it really means a lot to me so thank you*
