It’s my birthday!!! Surprise! Lol Im 38. Go ahead… Mmhmmmm. I’ve heard all the old fart jokes today lmao lmao…

Story time… Left is day 1 vs right of day 355, today, of my weight loss journey. Shirt 4xl to 2xl. Well some rare brands are still 3x. Pants/slacks 62 to 46. Belt 64 to 48. No confidence, depressed, tired, bleek… Vs… shit loads of confidence I never knew I had, mostly happy Lol (damn job), energetic, and hopeful for the future. And it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine and unicorn glitter farts; It all wasn’t always a downwards trend. It wasn’t tear free. It wasn’t stress free. I had gains too. Points where I wanted to just give up. Quit. Just stop. No one cares. Why bother!

Point is… Don’t stop. Don’t give up. And that’s right, no one cares! Be honest with yourself. No one cares. The only 1 that should care about you is YOU! Dont live, feed off of others. Do your own thing! And.. So what if you have a 2+lb gain this week. The weight loss journey is like driving on the interstate. You’ll make up for lost time… Just kick it into over drive now or later after a little break. You WILL get there. I’m proof of that. Just believe in yourself. Give yourself mini goals. And 1 realistic major goal. My 1 year was -100lbs. Obviously, I passed that! -138!!!! Just… 1-2 pounds a week. That’s all. The rest will follow. Do it on you own time. Your own goals. Your own rules. Don’t be an expert. I’m not an expert. Never stop learning. Play with your body. Learn. Explore yourself. Try new things. You will be great at it. Trust me! Just believe in yourself. Accept your flaws. Keep moving forward! Like the Marines say, “embrace​ the suck, and keep fucking moving!”

I’m gonna have some chocolate cake… Because I can! *Cheesey smile* 😛 y'all have a great night! Muah 🍀😘😜♥️

“The message that advertisers put out that if you’re skinnier you’re better, if you have no cellulite you’re better, if you have no rolls you’re better, if your legs don’t touch you’re better, if you have perfectly smooth skin and so on….. ➡️Products and surgery designed to fix all of these “"flaws” so we can all just look like cookie cutter versions of each other, as if one version of beauty and health is all there is. WRONG ! ➡️Why should the investment interest of advertisers come before the well-being of women and humans all together⁉️ ✨✨✨We need to continue to show diversity, to push for mental and physical health above a thigh gap, to push for self love , acceptance and empowerment just as we are . I have cellulite sometimes and it’s NORMAL . I will not photoshop , apologize, or shame my body . I feel beautiful, I am strong , I am capable, I am healthy and I am perfect just as I am and so are you”
