Well this is a tough one. I never thought I’d ever show the photo on the right. This was the first time I tried Diet Bet back in 2014 when I was at 256lbs. This wasn’t even my heaviest but I can see the depression, the hurt, and the self hate in my eyes. That person still exists in some form or another. But every day the girl on the left picks up the girl on the right and hugs her. Don’t let self hatred manifest into unhealthy habits. And remember that misery loves company. You deserve better. . . . #fitnessmotivation #healthylifestyle #mentalhealthawareness #weightlosstransformation #beforeandduring #beforeandafter #weightlossjourney #weightloss #dobetter #bebetterthanyouwereyesterday #riseandgrind #gym #gymmotivation #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #liftweights #beastmode #beatobesity #obeasetobeast #love
Let’s talk about something uncomfortable. My swollen foot (my left). The medical term is lymphedema. It’s swelling in the arm or leg due to damage of the lymph nodes. Back in 2002 I was in a car accident and slipped in school all in the same week and all on the same foot. After those two incidents my love of shoes was changed forever. After years of going to doctors and using crutches a boot, and leg pump machine that circulates fluids. I starting to realize that my weight has about 70% to do with how swollen my foot gets. I’ve never been able to wear cute shoes because my left foot would be too swollen to fit. There are some days that my foot is more swollen than others. Loosing weight has had a drastic effect though. I may not be able to completely solve the problem as lymphedema is incurable. However, reducing the strain I put on my legs by losing weight is definitely something that I’m willing to accomplish. . . .  #riseandgrind #takecareofyourself #beatobesity #obeasetobeast #fitnessmotivation #lymphedema #fitfam #gym #gymmotivation #beastmode #girlswholift #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #swollenfeet #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlifting #fit #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandduring #motivation #weekendvibes #instagood
Here’s the sexy autumn dress I wore for the anniversary dinner. Thursday afternoon I was out shopping. I wanted to find something nice to wear that wasn’t Old Navy. I decided to go to my usual stores, and by usual I mean Lane Bryant. Since 9th grade (17 years ago) that’s really the only clothes that fit me. Being overweight was such an expensive habit. Go into Lane Bryant and buy one outfit, walk out spending $300. I walk into Lane Bryant, tired, hangry, and just plain mindless. Like a shopping zombie I find a dress in my usual size and try it on. Wait, I’m not a size 22. Shit. Ok, maybe a size 14 just for laughs. Nope. It doesn’t fit. Here’s the thing, plus size clothing stores (like any other store) makes clothes that pander to their customers. Their sizes are comfortable not restrictive. So anything I tried on was entirely way to big. That’s when I perked up out of my hangry stupor and peaced the fuck out 🖕🖕BOOM!!!. The feeling of not having to go to an exclusively plus size store just blew my mind. Standing outside of the store I was sort of lost. Ok, what do I do now? Where do I go? Uhhh ok let’s try Anne Taylor. I’ve literally never stepped foot in that store. I had zero expectations. Well, this was the outcome. This dress is damn well fabulous and I feel like a million bucks. To note, it is the largest size they carry (xl size 14) but it’s a tad loose in the upper body area. Honestly, I never thought I’d ever get to say that. This is a dress I would keep and get taken in when I lose more weight. This just gives me the additional motivation to keep going. #riseandgrind #goals #weightlossjourney #girlswholift #girlswholiftheavy #fitnessmotivation #fitness #fit #fitchick #fitfam #workoutmotivation #fashion #fallfashion #thicc #gym #gymmotivation
This week has been such an incredible cleanse. Diet-wise, mental health-wise, love-wise. Today I hit a new goal and I don’t know why this number stood out but whatever it was a goal of mine. Current weight is 212, this week I started out at 216. I kept my macros in check, and my activity high. On top of that I get to celebrate my wedding anniversary with @ffstout and eat some fancy steak 💪. #fitnessmotivation #weightloss #weightlossjourney #gym #weightlifting #girlswholift #fitness #fitfam #obeasetobeast #beatobesity #healthylifestyle #activelifestyle

I’d love to be that person who spams the crap out of their followers...wait...no I don’t. This is why I just played catch up. This is me 2XL vs. L t-shirt size. Holy shit ya’ll. This feels great. #weightlifting #girlswholift #weightlossjourney #fitness #fitfam #gymmotivation #gymtime #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #fitgirls
You guys are going to get to know this photo well. Even though this is from April 22, 2017 -11 lbs. this has got to be the most fat I have felt. Even eating healthy for over a month! It definitely takes time for things to catch up.  #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #gymmotivation #beforeandafter #before #losingweight #weightlosstransformation #gym #girlswholift
