size 4x


This dress makes even my flat pancake butt look huge. Susie hasn’t decorated her tree, but it’s a great backdrop for ootd shoots. Also, Susie and I are so happy military-style coats and jackets are back in the style so we can get away with wearing all the bright buttoned pieces.

Size: 22-24, 3x-4x, 47"/49"/56"
Leggings: Torrid
Knee boots: Remonte
Jacket: Deb (are Deb stores even still a thing? I got this forever ago omg)

do u wanna know what i want to see in Supergirl? I want more of moments of Kara as Supergirl being an everyday hero. All of the show doesn’t need to be her fighting aliens 4x the size of her, or saving the world in every episode. Imagine Supergirl just going for a fly around National City and she sees a little girl sitting alone on the swings, so she stops in and says hi and offers to swing with her. Or maybe she hears some kid struggling with their math homework, so she stops in and tries to help them… (then calls Winn if she can’t remember how to do it). Perhaps a little girl is in the hospital, and her final wish is to meet Supergirl, so what does Supergirl do? She goes to the hospital and stays with the girl for as long as she possibly can. As much as i know the whole thing right now is big aliens and Cadmus, i really have this thing for nice, sweet, bubbly Kara showing through Supergirl’s steel exterior.

I’m honestly a bit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ about that aspect of ModCloth (there is no ethical consumption under capitalism and all. And honestly what shopping outlet ISN’T owned by an evil conglomerate at this point?)

The thing that’s great about ModCloth is that they a). have a nice selection of plus-size clothing and b). they’re one of the few retailers out there that I know of that actually sells colorful clothing, not just variants of Kardashian-ified spandex crop tops in various shades of black and grey

BUT I do have some problems with their stuff, mainly a) it’s seriously over-priced, especially for the amount of rayon and polyester that they use, and b). the sizing on their plus-size stuff isn’t exactly the best. Usually I’m a size 2X everywhere I go, but I got a 2X dress from ModCloth and I couldn’t get it zipped. I had to return it and got their largest size, a 4X, which fit, but came two weeks after the event I needed a dress for happened.

So I’ve been looking for a decent alternative.

I haven’t done a progress pic in a while and I wanted to show off some of my new clothes from an awesome thrift store I just discovered! Buying new clothes every time I dropped a size or two got too expensive!

Left: 360ish pounds, size 3x or 4x
Right: 190ish pounds, Size m/l
Height: 5'7"ish

A year and a half of exercise and eating right and I’m almost half the size I used to be and a NASM certified personal trainer! I lost the first 100lbs in the first 6 months! For those who ask, I didn’t have any surgeries or take any pills! I just changed my eating and exercise habits, kept a positive attitude, and set S.M.A.R.T. goals! Get excited about your goals and your life, and do something everyday to get closer to them! You can be whoever you want to be! You got this!


Me and Monkey in my old size 20 shorts.
I am finally cleaning out all of my old clothing. I’m swapping my size 24/26 and 3x/4x for size s/m, size 8/10, an size 31 jeans!!!! Yay!!!! Xo

November challenge to thin people

For the entire month of November I challenge you to only wear clothing that ALSO comes in a size 4X.

I am being completely serious.

Any article of clothing you wear must also be available in size 4X.  Not L.  Not XL.  4X.  (Which is not even as big as clothing items should go, imo).

I would bet a large amount of money that thin people cannot complete this challenge.  

Sometimes I take surveys online for a little extra money.

One day last month I got one with this:

The Next Mass Effect Context:

The next Mass Effect game takes place in the Helius Cluster (a cluster of 100s of solar systems in the Andromeda Galaxy), far removed by time and space from Commander Shepard’s heroic acts and the final events of the Mass Effect trilogy. You are a pathfinder, a combat trained but un-tested explorer leading an expedition into the Helius cluster to establish a new home for humanity. As you explore this sprawling series of solar systems (over 4x the size of Mass Effect 3), collecting resources and building colonies, you will encounter the savagery of untamed lands in the form of cut-throat outlaws and warring alien races. To survive and colonize the wild reaches of space, you will need to grow your arsenal, your ship, your crew and make strategic (and often uneasy) alliances to fight against increasingly menacing foes. Along the way, you will encounter the remains of a once powerful and mysterious alien race, the Remnant, whose forgotten technology holds the key to gaining power in this region of the galaxy. As you uncover who the Remnant were, and the mysteries their ruins contain, you are drawn into a violent race to find the source of their forgotten technology that will determine the fate of humanity.
