#TBT: For years Iโ€™ve struggled with body image issues as my weight goes up and down especially when Iโ€™m battling depressive episodes. When I was in HS I was called chicken legs and felt insecure about being skinny with big boobs and as I got older I always felt that if I wasnโ€™t thick I wouldnโ€™t be desired especially coming from an African family where they tell you to eat more or youโ€™re too skinny ๐Ÿ™„ but once I hit 25 that thickness hit me like a ton of bricks. I trained hard in the gym ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ in 2014/2015 to lose the weight and was at my โ€œslimmestโ€ (pictured left and upper right) only for me to gain more weight than I ever gained in my life ( I was over 200 pounds in 2016). In 2017 I went back to the gym and battled it out and lost some of the weight but I still had this notion that I needed to get down to my 2014/2015 body but over the last few months Iโ€™ve come to embrace my curves and be happy with the thickness Iโ€™ve gained. If I get down to my 2014/2015 body (which I can) then so be it but Iโ€™m happy with the extra meat on my stomach, thighs, legs, and hips! My current #plantbased body (center) is more healthier than ever and I feel a lot healthier than Iโ€™ve felt in my entire life! #proudvegan #nomorechickenlegs #veganlife #flawsandall #lovemycurves #imjustme #beautifullyflawed

Gratitude ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ #TBT

The show was so good I wish it was longer! Seeing @raphael_saadiq live in person was surreal. His catalogue is so large he didnโ€™t even have time to perform all of his songs. This man even told us stories about his life. Man Iโ€™m so humbled that I was able to experience a musical genius live in person. Cherish great musical artists while theyโ€™re still alive! #raphealsaadiq #kennedycenter #livemusic #musiclover #soulmusic #anniversary #oldschool #realmusic #musician #tonytonitone

Iโ€™m super calm but inside Iโ€™m screaming with excitement waiting to see #raphealsaadiq!#kennedycenter #concertvibes
