We have to be careful not to judge ourselves based on other people‘s appearances. I have this problem. I look at my body thinking that I am not good enough. I will sit there and self sabotage myself thinking I need to lose 20 pounds, I need to tone up, or I need to gain more muscle, etc. This is simply not the way to see yourself. You will never look exactly like someone else no matter what you do, so why compare? The only comparison you can make is you versus you. Be careful when following other people and looking up to them as if you will one day look like them. That is not the goal. You are beautiful you, and that is what matters. Strive to be the best version of YOU, not to be a copy of someone else. Learn to love yourself with me.

Hello there my loves. The angle of this picture makes my bum look nice so that’s cool I’d like to shed some light on the fact that in this photo (by the way there is literally no photoshop besides that I made it black and white) my body looks, in my opinion, really nice. However, in reality, I am working very hard to get a body that I am proud of. Not to say that I’m not proud of my body, because I am, but I’m aiming for a body that I’m SUPER proud of. Lol. There’s a difference :) anyway, just wanted to shed light on the fact that angles play a huge role in how a person looks. Don’t let social media trick you. The person you think is perfect is not perfect. They have flaws just like you have flaws. Learn to love your flaws and use them to your advantage - aka build inner peace and strength within yourself. Xoxo
Oh my goodness. I just feel so blessed! About everything. I read something interesting in Joel Osteen’s book “Think Better, Live Better”.... he explains how when it feels like everything is going wrong it means everything is about to go right. He explains it much better than me, but you get the point. As in like if you keep trying something and either keep failing, keep getting turned down, etc., if you just keep pushing it’s bound to happen. Just truly believe that it will, and it will. @makeupartistwendyc
Dad - thank you for being a father who always told me I can do whatever I dream to do. Thank you for supporting me in anything I wanted to try. Thank you for being an amazing father who I can look up to and say “I want to dream like that person”. I love you and I miss you. I’m so excited to get to give you a hug some day and tell you that I love you in words rather than through a letter.
Your proud daughter,
*ALERT: I'M SCARED TO BE SHARING THIS*
but I want to be real with you guys
Hello my beautiful people
So, this is week 1 to week 12 of my first #12weektransformation with @shedfat
I'm sad to say I'm not quite as toned as I was then right now I am not a person who easily stays "toned". Yes, I gain muscle quick, but I also lose it fairly quick. & yes I lose fat fairly quick, but I also gain it quick. I have a slimthick type body, and it fluctuates easily depending on many things. I am working on loving my body at all times..... even the fluffier ones. (Although this time around I'm ready to diminish those haha). My goal is to lose fat and be happy with myself and my physique. [I'm ready for my muscles to be poppin' hehe] Today marks 1 week since I started my 2nd 12 week transformation, and I am so very excited to see how my body transforms. Click the link in my bio and use code "change" to do it with me.
(P.S. I know a lot of you will say I look great how I am and all, but I want to feel great too. Therefore, I must get better ) @shedfat •
