When I was almost 500 pounds; all I wanted was to be able to walk into a Victoria Secret store and 1- Fit in their beautiful clothes, and 2- Shop with no judgment.
Well even after I lost 220 pounds sadly one of these goals was attainable but not both. Losing 220lbs and looking damn fine in VS lingerie was one ✔️, but successfully leaving a store without judgement, & being told BY STAFF: you won’t fit into our sizes, this stores just not for you.” ✖️unacceptable.
Why is it such a brilliantly built brand that openly shares its NARROW VIEWS of female beauty and fantasy, can’t invest in widening its perception of “acceptable beauty” to all of its following, not just “the desirable ones.” Take DOVE for example; Dove didn’t limit their models to fit one beauty prototype. It marketed to all and encouraged self acceptance and beauty in all forms & this marketing choice didn’t diminish the company, its image or worth, it sky rocketed its already booming profits and reputation, and it is a company that stakes its REPUTATION ON BEAUTY. .
VS clearly has the marketing tools, resources, financial independence & influential power, not to mention the interest and following of so many- that choosing to NOT embrace all bodies is not only a missed opportunity but sadly a slap in the face to women of this day and age. Are all women good enough to spend and purchase your product, but not all of us women are good enough to be acknowledged by your company? .
Victoria secret.. I’m a 235 pound woman, able to wear your clothing lines / lingerie- comfortably, and look damn good in it too... (Toot Toot🚂) So then why am not able to shop comfortably as a consumer in your stores without being judged BY the STAFF you’ve trained, or look forward to seeing models of my body type or size on the runway? .
Ladies AND if so GENTLEMEN please be kind to one another and esp yourself.
Not everything comes quick and easy, the best outcomes take time.
Know that you’ll find worth where there is investment, and you’re worth the time and effort.
Value yourself.

January 2018 / November 2018

I’ve had a lot of ups and downs this year!
Let me tell you, these last 11 months have really put me to the test. Doubting myself, my results, even my training sometimes. I would look in the mirror and question why isn’t this changing?? Or that..I’m working so hard!!! We’ve all been there right? Well this picture has reassured me that I’m on the right track.
_______________________________________
I just really want to say thank you!! Thank you for sticking with me through this crazy journey.. from losing 220 pounds to the girl that’s chasing those gains. 💁🏼‍♀️💪🏼🍑 🍗

I'm here for the girl that is having a rough time starting, to get out of bed and get dressed, to build up the courage to step outside and feel good enough to make a friend, to afraid or lost to know where to start/ what to eat or how to work out; For the girl that feels like taking their life I was there and it does get better, if you do better for yourself...not to please or find acceptance in others.
So with saying that 🤓 if you don’t agree with how I’m living MY life meaning me lifting weights and the way I’m shaping “again” MY body lol just stay out of here with your negative thoughts. Plain and simple right 🤷🏼‍♀️. _______________________________________
NOW.. have a blessed Monday my friends. 🤗 and thank you for all the dms over the weekend. My heart is so full. ❤️😩❤️

Back to Walmart to wrap it up 😂

I hope my passion for life and my confidence, motivates others to feel the same comfort and pride with their own body image - whatever it may be!
Love yourself while never settling for less. You are capable of living and creating the life you've dreamt of and deserve- with steady persistence and hard work.

Enjoyed some pizza and garlic fingers last night.. it’s been a hot minute since my last cheat meal. 🤪
Did I let this cheat meal get me down or say well I ruined all my hard work this week? Hell no! I continued with a healthy snack before bed then an awesome breakfast this morning before I hit the gym. 🙌🏼 #balance
One cheat meal is NOT going to ruin your progress.. so eat the damn pizza 🍕 😂🙌🏼💯
