Last summer I started wearing less makeup for an everyday look (not like I knew how to do hella great makeup in the first place though 😂) and I’ve found myself a lot more content with my natural look 🤗 Makeup can make you feel empowered and confident, and I would love to learn more because I love to dress up here and there 💃🏻 but don’t let it be the only driving force behind your self-worth 🙊
I LOVE THESE PICTURES. Staci, thank you so much for walking with me today! The @neda walk was such an amazing experience. When Bella was first diagnosed, we barely understood what an eating disorder was. We were caught off guard and had no idea where to turn for help. Organizations like #neda help families across the country find the resources they need. I really feel like completing this walk and the #outofdarkness walk in the fall change the way I talk about mental health. No more talking- it’s time to act. 💪🏻 #aeriereal#aerie#nedawareness#semicolonproject
Week 10 out of 14 is done & here is my progress! The first picture is when I first started, the middle is from 5 weeks ago, the the far right is from today 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 The difference between the last two pictures may not be THAT noticeable to you all, but after the past couple of days not eating so well, it’s nice to see that a couple of days means so little to nothing after 10 weeks of dedication! • • Who’s getting results like this with me?!
Today I went to the mall with my dear friend @aseaofserendipity. While she was getting some bubble tea, I went into Aerie. I have not been inside a clothing store that doesn’t sell plus size clothing in years. And I mean yearrrs. As soon as I walked in, I got self conscious. I noticed all the “skinny” models on the wall and the “skinny” people looking through the clothing racks. I had to continuously stop myself from thinking that I didn’t belong there, and that people were looking at me and saying to themselves, “this store isn’t for her.” It’s so crazy how these negative thoughts consumed me. I know it’s going to take a while to change this mindset, but I will. Because the good news is that I bought myself 4 pieces of clothing that fit wonderfully. I don’t have a picture of me shopping in Aerie, but I do have a picture of me trying on a non plus size north face jacket and having it fit me. #progress#weightloss#northface#aerie#wow#mindset#positivity#iambeautiful#youarebeautiful#shopping#losingweight#weightlossjourney#healthyliving#dickssportinggoods#bliss#friends
