If you live off a man’s compliments, you’ll die from his criticism.

So I started working on the Crane Pose today. I’m new to this and didn’t stay up long at all, but I’m excited that I got up there! I’m going to keep working on it. I’ll keep everyone posted and someday post progress pictures of my skills. (Because someday I WILL have yoga skills) 😊

So I was comparing one of my old Facebook profile pictures (taken last November) to this one (taken just a few days ago) and I can’t believe how much I’ve changed since then!

In the first one I weighed around 325 pounds and in the current one I’m at 265. But that’s not the thing that amazes me the most… look at my hair! 

Healthy girl, healthy hair!

Reblogging because I want all of my followers to be aware of just how much you can do in Photoshop, and how little of what you see on posters, in magazines and of pictures on the internet etc. are necessarily real. 

Imagine how the model feels, too. She was hired to be the most beautiful, but they still had to change her because her beauty wasn’t enough.

Not only is the general body distortion completely gross, but notice that they lighten her skin color. This is a white, blonde model, and they make her whiter. Actual white people aren’t even the ideal whiteness, so can you even imagine what models with dark skin have to endure in this industry?

so for all you girls that ask “Why can’t I look like the girls in magazines” it’s because the girls in magazines don’t even look like the girls in magazines.


This is important.

Doing great and looking strong!

Wanted to share my latest before and after! This is 3.5 years difference so don’t think that change comes quick or easy. I would mess up, quit, and restart all the time!! It takes time and you constantly have to remind yourself that it’s worth it. But about a year ago I fell off the fitness wagon, lost sight of my goals because I started battle something even harder to defeat. Depression. I slowly but surely spiraled out of control and found myself in a mental hospital for 2 weeks after a failed suicide attempt. In the midst of my depression and my stay in the hospital I gained about 30lbs. My therapist suggested I start back on my fitness journey and join a gym. Working out, eating healthy, and the camaraderie of the gym helped me recover from my depression along side taking medicine and seeing a therapist twice a month. I’m slowly learning to love myself and all my imperfections. Sometimes the journey is more than just weight. When the mind is healthy the body follows :)
