Some of the most poisonous people come disguised as friends and family. Stop surrounding yourself with people who don't celebrate you and your accomplishments. When someone says, "you've changed" or "you're changing," it simply means that you've stopped living your life their way. People get jealous. People get insecure. People will try to tear you down and sabotage you. Focus on yourself, work towards your own goals, and fuck anyone who tries to hold you back from health and happiness. #transformationtuesday

HI EVERYONE. πŸ‘‹πŸ» I'm just uploading this mediocre selfie of myself to let you all know that my running video is now LIVE ON YOUTUBE. ☺️ Sorry it took so long. 😭 To find my channel, just search for "Jordan Shrinks"! Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe. πŸ–€ I'm really trying to get into the YouTube thing so I would love to hear your feedback. I'm almost at 20k subscribers! As always, thank you for all the LOVE AND SUPPORT. YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING.
Ps sorry about my fucked up eyebrow in this video. I tried.
Pps sorry it's so long. I just like talking (it was originally 45 minutes πŸ™ƒ).

MY NAME IS JORDAN AND I LOVE VEGAN DONUTS (and Instagram filters).

#TBT to a time when I felt uncomfortable in nearly everything I wore - a time when I couldn't wear what I wanted because it wasn't offered in my size and a time when I only felt comfortable shopping alone because I was embarrassed that I couldn't fit into the clothes offered by major retailers. There is something so rewarding about being able to shop wherever I want. Shopping has been a nightmare for me for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest shopping memories was from grade six when all of my friends decided to get matching shirts. I couldn't get the shirt with them because the largest size was too small. I was heartbroken. I was eleven-years-old. As I got older I got too large for most stores. By the time I reached my highest weight, I had trouble fitting into most plus size clothes (I only fit in like half of the 3xs at Forever 21+). If you've ever been big, you know what it's like to feel as if the world was not made for you. While I'm happy about where I am now, I can't help but think of how I felt back then and how I'm sure a lot of you feel now. Just remember that change is possible. You are capable of changing your life. You can live happier, healthier, and more care-free. Beating obesity is so much more than fitting into the clothes offered at a certain store. Yes, it's an amazing perk, but regaining your health and happiness is so much more important. πŸ–€ You can do it. You're amazing. I believe in you.

HAPPY #TRANSFORMATIONTUESDAY, EVERYONE. πŸ–€ It's the best day of the week in our little weight loss community. I like this transformation photo of moi. πŸ’πŸ» On the left, you can tell that I was trying to make myself appear smaller. I did this often. I would try to hold my arms in really tightly even if it was uncomfortable. On the right, I'm just chilling (like a villain). When I first saw the picture on the right, I couldn't believe the definition in my neck and shoulders. I used to not be able to see my collarbones at all. It's the little things, ya know? Anyway, time to be serious. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I would like to share a poem I wrote. I lost two really special people in my life through this journey, and I would like to honour them...

An Ode to My Long Lost Sisters
--------
Boobs, where art thou?
You used to be here, but where are you now?
I thought we were friends, where did you go?
To the park, to the beach, will I ever know?
Until I find you, I will not relax.
I'll sit here waiting with these deflated sacks.
The skin you left behind, it needs to be filled.
My tits look like scrotums, I'm not very thrilled.
I must find a companion, a lover, a suitor.
You're making it hard, even Shrek is cuter.
I will wait an eternity for you to come back.
But until you return, my heart remains black.
Thank you.
*snaps*

SO YA WANNA BE A RUNNER, EH? Did you know that when I first started losing weight, I could only run for 15 seconds? This is not an exaggeration. I tried on the treadmill and lasted a whole 15 seconds. Today, I'm a ferocious speed demon, running through the streets (with my woes), dodging cars and pedestrians like a ninja, tripping and eating shit only sometimes. You better wibble wobble watch the fuck out @usainbolt because I'm coming for ya - Tokyo 2020 is where I'll make my debut. You have the title of being fastest person on earth? NOT ANYMORE. Move aside, turtle man.

OK but actually, my next video (that I plan on recording this weekend) is all about RUNNING in weight loss. Running tips for beginners, how I got into running, my advice, etc. So if you are interested in learning more about running, please post your questions on this photo!! I try to make my videos as helpful as possible (emphasis on the "try"), so getting some questions is always nice. HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE WEEKEND, FRIENDS. ❀️

fyi @usainbolt I'm single.

#TBT to my fluffier days in 2014(ish?). I really like this photo. WHY, YOU ASK? Well because it reminds me that my weight has never defined me. Sure, it used to hinder my ability to live a healthy and unrestricted life, but it never made me less valuable, less smart, or less worthy. This photo was taken at an international Model United Nations conference. I went to this conference on three occasions and competitively debated with confidence each time. The truth is that most of my life accomplishments were achieved while I was overweight. I graduated from my undergraduate institution while overweight. I got featured in an art exhibit when I was overweight (I was 18 - it was lit). I competitively debated (and won) while overweight. I wrote (and published) a major research project during my undergrad while overweight. I wrote and defended my honours thesis while overweight. I wrote my masters thesis while overweight - which is probably the most comprehensive document I will ever write in my life. I acted as a teaching assistant (and taught two tutorials) while overweight. I finished my first masters degree while overweight. Basically what I'm trying to say is that yes, losing weight has changed my life for the better. I am healthier, stronger, more confident, and I never want to go back to where I started. But my weight has never defined me. My weight never made me less than my peers - just like it doesn't make you less than yours. Let me tell you something about people who disrespect others based on their weight (or any other physical attribute): they are fucking garbage. They are poison. Please don't forget your value. I get so many emails and messages from people who tell me they feel worthless because of their weight. This is not true. You deserve love and respect. I say this all the time but you are more than your body. You will be successful in weight loss when you finally accept that you DESERVE happiness. Loving yourself makes fighting for yourself much easier. Love yourself now. You deserve it. ❀️

Something has changed πŸ€”πŸ€” (and it's not my fantastic taste in music). #transformationtuesday #onawednesday #becausemydumbassforgot

Thank you everyone so so so much for the OVERWHELMING amount of support on my last post. You guys are actually the best. I am so grateful that you take the time out of your day to like my photos and leave me comments. πŸ–€ I am on day four of getting my shit together. This is just a reminder that we all struggle and we all experience different hardships. I have a bad bad baaaad relationship with food. It's either all or nothing for me - I either eat restrictively (with no cheats) or I eat everything uncontrollably. I have trouble finding balance. This is something I've struggled with since last October. Just know that if you experience this too, you are not alone. I have fallen into about twenty binge cycles this year so far. The best we can do is try again. Don't be too hard on yourself. It will take time. If you have absolutely nobody to talk to about this, please know you can always email me (no DMs!!!). I'm not a doctor or therapist - but I will always try to help if I can. OK. LAV U.

Ps the picture on the right is actually a couple months old but I didn't have any recent photos of me in a music t-shirt and I needed one so I could make my hilarious joke (but I actually weigh less now than I did in that picture so 😎.... but I look the damn same so πŸ˜’). β€’
Pps um excuse me @theellenshow I have been tagging you in my photos for like three months when the heck are you going to invite me and give me free underwear? πŸ€”

I have something to share!! On October 25th, 2017, I will be having excess skin removal surgery. This is something I have thought about for a long time. It is something that I know I want and something that I know will make me happy. I will be having a bilateral mastopexy (breast lift) with no implants and a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Both surgeries will be performed at the same time.

Everyone who has a weight loss account on Instagram has a different story. Mine is that I have been overweight my whole life. I didn't gain my weight later in life. I grew up obese. My elementary, high school, and university experiences were all affected by my weight. I have never in my life been completely comfortable in my body. And while I know a lot of you don't believe I need surgery or don't believe I should get surgery, I want surgery. I want to know what it's like to feel comfortable in my own skin. I know that surgery won't solve all my body image problems - but I know it will help. Unsurprisingly, I have hesitations about sharing this with 80,000 people on Instagram. I'm sure I'll get some rude feedback. Some people think that cosmetic surgery is "cheating" in weight loss. Well, I have already lost my weight. And to remove the skin I have remaining, surgery is my only option. To be honest I don't really care about negative feedback. I'm rarely phased by rude comments. What I am afraid of is that my decision to change my body will harm someone's perception of themselves. If your body looks like my current body, my decision to change my body does not mean that you need to change yours. My decision to change my body does not mean that your body is ugly or valueless. My decision is based purely on how I feel in my own body and does not reflect how you should feel about yours. If you love your body, that's amazing. You should.

As always, thank you all for the unconditional love and support you provide me. I am excited for this next chapter in my life and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you on here and THE TUBEEE. ☺️
