I’ve been the biggest girl in the room for as long as I can remember. I don’t have an ideal weight or a time of peak performance, I don’t know any different than extreme obesity. I guess it’s time to learn! 😳

From 357 to 207 lbs, I could not be more proud of myself! Happy #motivationmonday, everyone! I hope you’ve all done something to make yourself proud today! ❤️ #motivation #inspire #fitlife #happymonday #weightlossjourney #mindbodyspirit #weightloss #extremeweightloss #beforeandafter #beforeandduring #weightlosstransformation #fitchicks #girlsthatlift #ms #multiplesclerosis #100poundsdown #150poundsdown #transformation #diet #wellness #healing #selflove #happy #nsv #proud #withouttheweight #fitlife #fitspiration

#Confidence and #selfacceptance is not about size 💕. I’ve been thinner in the past but I have never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am today💖 👸🏾💖. Don’t wait until you see a certain number on the scale 🙅🏾 or for the approval of others to be ok with who you are 💁🏾. #youareenough right now🌸 #selflove is for all 💘 #jbyfs 🌈🍩🎀🍭❤️

10 reminders for when you could use a little boost:

1. You’re young

2. There is no pressure

3. You’re doing fine. You’re doing great. You’re doing enough.

4. You are lovely and magnificent just as you are. You don’t need to fit yourself into a mold or change yourself to please anyone – not even the critical voice inside your head.

5. Nothing is the be-all or end-all of you – so don’t put so much weight on mistakes, struggles of fears. Keep trying. Don’t be afraid. It’s about the process. It’s about the learning. It’s not about the result. Many times the best knowledge and growth are borne from mistakes

6. Get out of your head – be present for the magic of life and flow with the waves

7. Let go of attachments – to things, to people, to ideas… And get comfortable with fully occupying your body, your mind and the space around you

8. Let go of expectations – have faith that things will work out as best as possible – give yourself the freedom that comes with letting go of the need to control. Sometimes what you get is far better than anything you could have hoped for!

9. There’s more than one way of doing things. Don’t look at others and compare yourself to them. Life is not a race. Every flower blooms at its own pace. Be patient as you learn and grow.

10. Be your own best friend. Love yourself wholeheartedly. Do things that are good for you and respect your needs. Be careful about how you talk to yourself and about yourself to others.

Remember to make the most of every opportunity and create a life you love. If you aren’t happy with something…start making changes that bring you more joy. You need to realize that you are destined for greatness and the way to reach greatness is to be your best self.

Before I share Armani’s story, I wanted to offer a friendly reminder that if you are confused as to why we need Black Breastfeeding week you can read some amazingly compelling reasons here: http://blackbreastfeedingweek.org/why-we-need-black-breastfeeding-week/

We love discussion and very much appreciate when women educate, celebrate and empower one another by sharing their view points. However, please keep in mind that this is a safe and supportive space and WE believe strongly in the need for this week and for the normalization of breastfeeding in general. If you have something negative, hateful or contradictory to say please remember that this is NOT the space to do so. And now, back to the beauty…

The amazing Armani Barker with her son Maverick (2) and daughter Isla (2.5 months). Armani struggled with disordered eating growing up and had a lot of body related issues because of it. Even just 3 years ago, she wouldn’t have been seen in a bathing suit unless she was under 100 lbs. In 2011, Armani’s mother died leaving her devastated. She conceived her son the following year and was able to feel a shift in healing that was so needed after her mother’s loss; becoming a mother herself was allowing that to happen. Her pregnancy went very well and she chose to deliver in a birthing center. Maverick nursed until he self weaned about 4 months into her pregnancy with Isla. Armani chose not to find out if she was having a son or daughter with her second pregnancy and says she was outwardly scared of having a girl. Isla’s arrival at home, however, has provided the last piece of healing and closure she says she didn’t know she needed. Forming a relationship with her own child that her mother had with her has made her family feel complete in a way she didn’t know it ever would again. #blackbreastfeedingweek #bbw15 #4thtrimesterbodiesproject #fourthtrimesterbodiesproject #4thtrimester #fourthtrimester #postpartum #breastfeeding #childbirth #bodypositivity #stopcensoringmotherhood #motherhood #bodypositive #4thtrimester #4thtribodies #pregnancy #everybodyisbeautiful #feminism #feminist #selflove #bodylove #fourthtribodies
