The Fabricated Goddess

This girl....

This girl - circa 1991... She's so unhappy. She hates her body : her cheeks, her thighs, her bum. She is obsessed....she checks and rechecks the scale, hoping it will say the right thing. She feels invisible here and so SO conspicuous at the same time. She's hungry to feel satisified. She's full and fed up. She's with me still.


  • Michelle, I love your honesty and your realism. Thank you for sharing the real you in these blogs.

  • I had to look 3 times to even find a resemblance to you in this photo! When we went shopping that first time last spring when I had started to lose weight and you were encouraging me from a place of experience, I must confess I had a hard time imagining you ever having been overweight. The things you said here about that girl in the photo I can fully relate to, even now. Thank you for being willing to open yourself up like that. I simply wouldn't have the courage to post a photo of me from even a year ago!
    Bless you!

  • Oh my gosh Michelle. I had no idea. I've only known you as a skinny minny. Thanks so much for posting this. It's how I feel now but you have given me hope.

  • Ok, never in a million years would I have guessed that is you!! You look sooo different now. Well, you are an inspiration and I too hope that I soon find out what works for me!! You are so beautiful!!
    Love your friend Deb
