women progress

I don’t post much about my weight loss journey but Words can’t describe how proud I am of myself for losing 94 pounds in the last year and 3 months! Seeing the difference in pictures motivates me to keep going. I feel like a whole new person and it feels great to be so confident in myself and wear the things I want to wear without caring what anyone thinks. Never did I ever think posting my selfies through out the weight loss process would get me 20 thousand Instagram followers! But with your help I’ve learned to love my body and my journey ain’t over, I’m still going 😊💖

PROGRESS UPDATE: it’s been exactly 32 days since I found out what was really going on with my brain and gut! 32 days since I’ve started the gluten free, dairy free diet and switched to Pea Protein instead of whey and I taking digestive enzymes with every meal. So during all the confusion from June-Dec the most I weighed was 188lb. I was still working out and eating the same but I kept gaining weight which was super discouraging. Through it all I just tried to embrace the curves and fluffiness but I really hated. The picture on the left is from October 8th so I’m in the thick of it! Nauseas, no appetite, extremely fatigued, headaches, mood swings, anxiety, sleep was nowhere to be found. Life was great 🙃 this was probably when I was around 185-188 and looking at the picture I can see it on myself 🙈. Today, I got the scale and saw 175! LISTEN, I was just 182 in Dec and 180 last Tuesday!! IM SO EXCITED AND HAPPY!!! Finally things are working, I’m feeling better and I’m losing weight! Mind you I’m on a modified workout plan, I can only do 10 minutes of HIIT when before I was doing 30-45 minutes. So I added in more plyo and yoga. I was slightly embarrassed about these numbers but oh well I’m fine 😜 and hopefully this can help someone! Also I’m not dead set on weighing a certain number, I rarely weigh myself but my weight changed from my concussion so I kinda had to keep track of it. But yeah, so I’m losing weight and I’m happy! Just wanted to share! Oh and I’m 5'6 and half Questions or comments, leave em below!

I want those that are trying to get healthier, whether that be to lose weight or gain muscle or just stay healthy, there is no secret pill, secret smoothie, secret diet, and the list goes on, that will help you achieve your goals… With motivation, determination, perseverance, drive and most importantly self-love and self-appreciation, you will reach your goals!
The biggest “aha” moment that I’ve had, through this journey, is that at the end of the day, the only person who will always be there for you, to love you, to support you and push you is YOURSELF; so why tear yourself down? It is a constant battle in our minds, hurting ourself, finding our flaws and picking at them but remember at the end of the day that you are amazing, strong, powerful, resilient and just downright awesome!
Love yourself and push yourself to your limits because you can achieve any goal you set your mind to! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Herbalife!?

Okay, so my cousin sells Herbalife and I’ve always seen her post about it. Recently she posted a month long challenge where the winner receives 500 dollars! Naturally I had to ask her where do I sign up. She told me that in order to be in the competition I’d have to try Herbalife. I eventually caved and bought protein powder, water weight control bills and a Formula 1 drink mix. I’m actually really excited to go on this new weight loss trip because I’m tired of being unhappy with my body. I will be posting here everyday for the month of April letting you all know my journey and logging my workout and diet habits. I’m really really really looking forward to this! Hopefully Herbalife is something worth investing in!!!

Women’s football was massive in the First World War and after the war finished the football teams that had sprung up from ammunition factories remained very popular. The FA noticed, ‘women’s football? Why is everyone paying to watch women’s football? What’s this I hear about a 53,000 crowd watching women’s football at Goodison Park?’ then letters started to appear in the papers saying it was unfeminine, unladylike and medically unsound for women to play football. It was fine for them to work in ammunition factories and be exposed to all of that danger of explosions, that was fine but it was medically unsound for them to play football? The FA banned women’s football from being played on any FA affiliated pitch, which crushed it. The ban stood for 50 years.

Can I just say that you pointing out that people love to critique Felicity for being 10+ older than her character, but don't do the same to Diego? Like, hm, I wonder why people love to pull that card against her. It's been bugging me ever since the movie came out, so thank you for stating that it's an obsolete and ridiculous criticism!

You’re welcome. 

It’s particularly absurd because Diego Luna and Felicity Jones actually have the same age difference as Jyn and Cassian (four years), which makes them both too old by exactly the same amount. In both cases, it’s really obvious that they’re older. This is like a double standards trap just waiting to happen, and yet they keep stepping right into it.

I’m finally, FINALLY, getting back into programming.

The beauty that you see here is what I have so far of the prototype for my present dropping game, Santa Simulator 3000. (Just kidding, name pending).

@jackw-gamedesign helped me with the programming (thank you) because I’m still very slow at it, and we spent about an hour or so this afternoon trying to figure out the present drop that you see above.

We went from the presents flying upwards, to behind, to the present spawning bonanza pictured above. I think my favourite part is that because the presents are parented to an empty GameObject that Santa is also attached to, the presents kind of just follow Santa and his sled along the rooftops.

Ok there’s so much here I love I barely know where to start. The fact that the leaders of the Women’s March are using their new platform to teach the history of organized labor and its solidarity with feminism to people ignorant to the importance of striking is AMAZING. 

As the resistance grows my hope is that we can have a broad 3-day or work week general strike involving millions of people. That’s where we get into billions of dollars of our labor withheld from the political and economic establishment.

re clary's bad writing, did you ever see the picture one of the writers posted on international women's day because it was kat and all the female writers and minus y. shireen, it was a white girl power squad and i was cringing and also laughing because clary is basically their self-insert white feminist lol

i didn’t but i’m not surprised lol. i also wasn’t surprised to hear cc had more of a hand this season either bc she’s….your typical white feminist as well and has always written her characters that way. but she’s hardly the only one to blame, it’s just what happens when you put these white women together going for ~girl power~ while disregarding any notion of intersectionality whatsoever.
