love losing weight


Throwback to just a few months ago, in the warm San Diego sun☀️ As I’m trying to find some new swimsuits for this new year, I’m reminded of all the people over the past few years that have told me how I’ve inspired them to wear their first swimsuit or bikini. Honestly that’s one of the best compliments you can give me! If I’ve inspired someone to enjoy life a little more, to not be afraid of a camera, to embrace the feel of the sun shining on their exposed skin, then it’s worth it all.
So here’s to finding some hot new swimsuits and making some waves 🌊💙

So this is another weight loss update: The first picture is from my first year in college and the second one is from my third year in college. The second picture was taken 3 days ago and I think I made progress. Haha! Follow me on Insta @coldcolorface for more updates. Feel free to ask me anything! 

15 things to remember:

1.   that thing you did that was kind of embarrassing and weird, everyone else forgot about that already

2.   you look fine today, if you can’t notice something on your face standing 6 feet from a mirror then nobody else will either.

3.   social lives can go through cycles sometimes, if you feel like your friends are all ignoring you for no reason they’re probably just busy with other things.

4.   if you can’t stop thinking about someone or something, read a book, paint your nails or watch a movie. it won’t solve any serious problems but you will feel better.

5.   listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.

6.   if you want something, go get it. 

7.   drink lots of water, eat lots of fruit, exercise more, go outside, get enough sleep and think positive thoughts.

8.   if you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.

9.   throw away the idea of a perfect tomorrow and live in the moment.

10.  stop comparing yourself to others.

11.  a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. It’s a privilege to simply be alive and healthy. Start acting like life is a blessing.

12.  act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you’d like to act.

13.  you will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. you’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.

14.  you don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.

15.  being happy is the most important thing.

The After picture is from Feb 2016..I have come a long way and I did this with no Gym or equipment of any sort. I just followed a youtube video everyday for almost a year and it did wonders. Follow me on Insta @coldcolorface for more about me. Like and share to show people that anything is possible. I used to be 76Kgs and now i’m 55Kgs. Please feel free to ask me anything! I’m always free to help.

My NEW YEARS Ode to Thy Self…

This is the first time in my life where I am ‘taking in’ my true self… breathing it all in as a full, whole, and completed young woman.
(Yup - I said young … so 'Shut Up’ Lisa Taylor! LOL 😂)

The decisions I’ve made and experiences I’ve had led me to this moment in time.
My time… My season.
For once, I believe I matter in this world.
I take myself Seriously.

I declare Greatness upon my future.
I did and am doing MY work towards blessings abundant.

I changed my Mind, Body, Diet.
I learned to forgive myself.
I love ME unconditionally.
I am not brand new - just upgraded to a better version.
(We all want that Deluxe Rolls Royce instead of the Pinto we have at home… wink, 😉)

I am introducing and meeting the next version of myself…
I am in the best shape of my life and In spiritual balance with myself.
I am so hope-filled for the next phase of my life.

Some might view me as being Hard, Difficult, at times Unyielding…
Those folks are confused… for they do not belong on the path I am walking… it is NOT their time.
As for me - I’m unstoppable with a strong sense of self, who knows what I want and what I deserve in life.

I am The Only One who gets to say what goes on in my life.
I am not willing to be chronically unhappy even if somebody paid me to do so.
My inner vision is clear for the first time in my life.

I now Ask for what I want -if I get a No… I self evaluate and Ask again!

So “Hello. My name is Michele. Nice to meet you.”

Happy New Year to me.


Start Weight: 197lbs
2nd photo: 178 lbs
3rd photo: 153 lbs
44 pounds down 30 to go
This is a difficult journey. I’ve gone through so many ups and downs in the past year. I still find myself wandering off my fitness path but I want to look like Sandra Prikker dammit!
Healthy eating and drinking 2 liters of water a day. Also 1-2 hours at the gym 6 times a week.
I love what I’m starting to look like and I feel so strong.
You guys should see my skin. I’m 29 but I look like a 22 yr old. Water is my bff!!

I lost over 100lbs, and cut off my hair. I can finally stop hiding my face. Still trying to lose the last 50 stubborn pounds. I won’t stop now.
