2011 photo the year


Happy Birthday, Ellie May Darcey-Alden! (4 September 1999)

“[My mum] told me [I won the part of Young Lily Evans] after school that day and I screamed, like I straight up screamed, then I cried. It’s not something you expect; it’s something you create [in your mind]. It’s one of those things you go, ‘Oh gosh, I wish I could do this. Like, how can I be able to do this?‘ And it’s, like, one of my dreams [to be in Harry Potter], something that sits in the back of your head. And then, when it actually happens, it’s really surreal.” (x)

Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards | November 8, 2011

Prior to being presented the All-Star Award, Jennifer Lopez took to the red carpet in one of her best looks ever. The entertainer wore a dove grey Atelier Versace Fall 2011 beaded, thigh-high split gown, which featured a beautiful leather petal detail at the nape of the neck. She styled the stunning gown with crystallized Jimmy Choo peep-toes and flawless hair and makeup.

First photo was November 2011 at my year 12 formal…. Second photo was November 2013 at a wedding… Third photo was yesterday… The 3rd of April 2015… I am finally fitting back into clothes I was wearing in high school… I don’t know how much weight I’ve dropped but in the first photo I was around 90kgs… Keep in mind I am 5'10… I’ve always been the fat kid, and I’ve never really focused on my health until a couple of months ago. And starting tomorrow, I’ll be going to the gym regularly and eating cleaner. I’m so so proud of what I’ve done, but I still want to lose another 15-20kgs or so and go down a few more dress sizes. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m always going to be curvy. I have hips, I have boobs… And that’s just the way it is. But I can think positively about it, and treat my body right. The only way is up!

I know I’ve been reblogging the picture on the right a lot, but I have a good reason. I’m finally able to say that I’m becoming much more confident in my appearance. That’s a huge accomplishment for me. It’s been one long crazy road.

The photo on the left is from my senior prom in 2011.

The photo on the right is New Years Eve 2014.

Don’t ever give up hope, because change starts the minute you decide to make it happen.

Old fashioned way, i changed eating habits & i do moderate exercise. The only things i cut completely out of my life are meat, soda and food that is made just of chemicals.

I look at my old photos and i remember how i use to feel about my body. I’m so glad i changed, it was very hard journey.

My metabolism was all i needed to fix, it made my weight loss only matter of time.
