Okay, so it’s not Transformation Tuesday or Throwback Thursday or Flashback Friday, but earlier tonight I found the pictures on the right and HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT. Summer 2009 versus last week/today, 4.27.2013.

I NEVER saw myself as being one of those people who could upload a picture like this. Whenever I get discouraged and feel like I haven’t made any differences in my life, I can look at this and know that the changes I’ve made were worth it.

One year. Here’s to another of this crucial and adventurous journey. The girl on the right absolutely hated herself: she was jobless, heavy, stressed, in tears constantly, and nitpicked herself. The girl on the right really has come a long way even on the lowest of days. She doesn’t cry everyday, doesn’t nitpick in the mirror as often, enjoys her food, loves as much as possible, has a job, and works hard to reach her goals. Not every day is perfect whatsoever, but I’m working hard to be the best me for ME. Sending love and support to those who need some light in their lives tonight. ❤️😍😘

AH! I hope you don't mind me asking (totally ignore if you want to) but how tall are you and how much do you weigh? You have a really nice body and right now you are my fitspiration! I am a thicker black girl girl myself and while I don't mind my weight right now, I feel as if I would look and feel my best if I had a smaller body! So thanks! And sorry if this makes you uncomfortable to answer because that's not what I intend to do!

Hi! Thanks for your question. I don’t own a scale so I don’t know my weight as of now. I’m 5'5"-5'6" and I weigh around 120-125lbs. For some shorter heights this isn’t that small but for my stature my BMI is around a 19.
