I never thought I could do it, never thought in a million years that I would have the will power. And definitely never thought I would be writing this post right now. It was a rough 4 months for me (especially keeping my diet on track through Irma and María). I'm so thankful to have friends who stuck by my side through my changes and motivate me when I needed it the most. Today I feel amazing and 47 pounds less and still counting because my goal does not stop here. This transformation is only the beggining for me. For anyone who is struggling with their weight I want to tell you, you are beautiful, you are resilient, and you CAN do it just need to focus and if you get side tracked do NOT give up. Don't EVER let anyone tell you otherwise. Always be body positive in whatever body you have.
Ну вот и прошёл месяц моей работы в новом амплуа. И конечно первым делом хочу сказать огромное спасибо моим отцам в этом деле @mi.sha_one❤❤ и @konovalov3006 ❤спасибо Вам огромное. Они не побоялись взять меня с нуля и каждый день учат чему-то новому, никогда не отказываются помогать и не смеются над косяками😌 а @itrubitsin1 научил меня "Жлуля языку" 😏 и с ним всегда можно пожрать😌 @goluboff.zhenka , с ним можно всегда поныть, если что-то болит после треши и он это поймёт 😌 с командой мне очень повезло в общем. Ещё раз скажу огромное спасибо Мишуле и Кирюше❤❤ что в итоге получается ?? Хуй стоит, голова качается 😆😆
"Zitkala-Ša (1876–1938) was a writer, musician, editor, teacher, and political activist belonging to the Sioux tribe of Native Americans. The many books she wrote on her identity and struggle to reconcile the majority culture with her traditional heritage were among the first works to bring Native American stories to a wide readership in the United States.
As a child, she was taken away from her reservation and educated in a Quaker institution, where the distress caused by the denial of her origins paved the path to a lifetime of activism. She was responsible for translating old legends of her tribe into English, therefore making them accessible to a wide audience. Among other endeavours, in 1926 she founded the National Council of American Indians, which aimed to unite tribes and advance their rights, as well as attempting to secure full citizenship for its members." _____________________
She died on January 26th, 1938 in Washington D.C.
Eating disorders come in all sizes. I had an eating disorder (ED) in each of these photos. I was never under 100 pounds, or looked stereotypically anorexic, so no one was ever concerned of an ED or being underweight. They were only concerned when I was overweight. When I was underweight people complimented me/how I looked. When I was overweight, compliments stopped and I had questions and negative comments instead.
I was 8 when I started thinking I looked fat.
When I was 10 I learned how to move the scale back a few pounds and learned how to suck in my stomach. I thought my parents thought I was fat too.
Around 13 I started hiding food, especially treats, desserts & snacks.
At 14 I didn’t eat breakfast, only ate the broth from soup at lunch, and I tried not eating dinner. I was active in cheerleading and had started being bullied by a former friend on the cheer squad.
When I got braces around 15 I stopped eating at school and around people because I didn’t want food stuck in my teeth. I was embarrassed of what I looked like eating.
1st two photos (16 & 18). Before dances I wouldn’t eat all day so that I could be as thin as possible and not look bloated or have a pooch.
3rd photo (19). I stopped exercising and was gaining weight by binging foods I loved. I never purged as I hate throwing up and my IBS already gave me diarrhea fairly often. After I saw myself in that photo I cried at how fat I looked.
4th photo: (21). I had been working out 4-5x a week and dieting for a cruise. I still didn’t like myself in a bikini even after I was 20 pounds lighter than before and hit my “goal weight”. I wasn’t eating after 5 pm, only ate veggies after 12, told people I was full, and did weird diets like eating 1 Tbs of coconut oil by itself. I reached my goal by being sick for a whole week after my 21st bday.
5th photo (22). I started binging again after a hard year of losing my gma, finishing college, and hating my job. I had hit my highest weight ever. I still had an ED as I skipped meals, hid food, lied about hunger and cried about my appearance.
At 23/24 I realized I had struggled with anorexia/ED since I was 8, & finally started my journey to happiness.
Monday Mood. "Good morning sista! Hope your Monday is going well! Just thought you’d like to know that I’m officially down 21 lbs and 32 inches!" You guys.
My heart is BURSTING.
This is the SECOND message I've gotten from two friends that decided to do this after telling me no for TWO YEARS.
One is down 25 pounds.
Another one is down 21 pounds and 32 inches.
They showed up.
They pressed play.
They participated in the bootcamps.
What in the world are you waiting for?
I'm telling you.
There's enough success for anyone who just trusts this process. CLICK link in bio to learn more.

I've just slept and watched YouTube this afternoon, it's been pretty chill☺️
A bit bored and unsure what to do now so I'll probably talk to some friends and try to stay awake (I'll probably fail)😴
Hope you've all had a good Monday! I'm not a Monday fan but today's been better for me than some Monday's😉
