Late night post to bring a bit of positivity to your day!! πŸ’œ
So the last few weeks/ months have been really difficult for me.
Depression has got to me and my eating disorder has done its very best to slip back in.
πŸ’œ
Saying that, this is what I've managed in the last few days.... I've been to the doctors.
Taken my meds every day.
Been able to look at my body and accept that it's ok.
Gotten in the bath to relax.
Taken pictures of myself (which I've been struggling with recently)
Gone back to uni.
Seen my friends.
And I haven't restricted AT ALL in two weeks😊
πŸ’œ
So to a lot of people these things will be seem trivial, I mean most people do them without thinking but to me and so many others out there these small tasks are like climbing a mountain!! And that's ok!!
πŸ’œ
So to anyone who's having a really tough time... YOU CAN DO THIS!!! You can get out of bed, you can look after yourself and you can feel amazing about the things you've done today. Because even taking the smallest of steps gets you up the mountain in the end πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

With 6 hours of Asana a day; I wish I was cuddling up to my @brentwoodhome bolster πŸ˜… -----------------

Stretch marks are also a common consequence of surgery because surgeries and hospitalisations lead to a lot of sudden weight fluctuations.
Regardless of how you got your stretch marks, I genuinely think they are gorgeous. I always have. Mine are on my hips and I think they perfectly frame my figure πŸ˜‰

No, they are not tiger stripes, they are simply my stretch marks and I'm ok with calling them what they are.

There is a terminology in coaching that is called the stretch zone. There is your comfort zone which is safe (and sometimes boring!), and here is being too far out of your comfort zone where you panic. Somewhere in the middle is your stretch zone. It means you are growing and isn't comfortable but also isn't too uncomfortable... that's what my stretch marks remind me of - my growth. #ScarredNotScared

So today I was feeling pretty shitty about myself. I got done shoveling chicken shit, feeding animals, taking care of kids, looked at myself in the mirror and just felt plain. I never wear makeup, my clothes are old and boring. So I thought I'd make myself not look so plain. Truth is I was comparing myself to others. I feel dumb as hell with all this shit on my face. It's not me. And it didn't make me feel any better. I had to get myself back in check that I am my own unique beautiful and sexy and awesome person. Someone else's beauty dosnt diminish my own. Someone else's status or clothes dosnt make them any better. In a world where we are taught that certain things make one person better than another this is a lifelong struggle to really honor my self and not want to be more like anyone else.

When I was in elementary school, I would often wear sweatshirts even when the weather didn't call for it. I was embarrassed by my belly.
Middle school I started wearing shorts and baggy t-shirts or tanks with my bathing suits. I used to say it took me so long to learn to swim because the water scared me, that was a lie.
Sophomore year, I was excited to borrow some of my sisters old clothes. A friend of mine mentioned how I shouldn't try to squeeze into things that didn't fit. For the longest time it was really hard for me to grasp that I, the younger sister, was growing to be the larger sister.
Junior year I had my first panic attack at school because I was last to finish running the mile in gym class. I was embarrassed. I collapsed in the stairwell and my teacher had to send a friend to come check on me.
β€’
Nine months ago I started taking better care of both my mind and body. I stopped believing there were things I couldn't do. I stopped telling myself that running sucks, because ACTUALLY it makes my anxiety almost disappear.
Three months ago was the first time in four or five years that I willingly stepped onto a scale by myself- not because of the number, but because it was the first time I knew I wouldn't care what it said. I learned that with a healthier body comes a healthier mind.
Two months ago I laid out on a beach towel next to my friend, shorts free for the first time in 8 years.
At age 21, I have begun to love every bump, roll, stretch-mark, and scar. I have begun to say that I love myself, I'm proud of myself, and truly mean it.
I'm still on my self-acceptance journey, and I will always be. Sharing this journey is just another step, and I want to thank you all for allowing me to do so. .

Exposure.
We're exposed to our bodies everyday.
There's no escaping it.
But how often do you actually see your body?

When we're exposed to other people's bodies (in real life) we see the whole picture.
We see as they flow and move into different body shapes.

We don't, however, get this luxury with our own bodies.
Instead we see our bodies in segments.
Never fully seeing the whole picture.

The only thing that allows us to see our bodies in full are mirrors and photos. But unless you live in a room full of mirrors, these experiences are going to be limited.
Due to this lack of exposure I find that when I do see my reflection or take a photo I automatically pose.
That pose may be closer to my natural relaxed body shape or it may be closer to the current beauty standard.
Either way it's posed.
But my body isn't constantly posed.
It's continually moving and flowing from one body shape to another. This is something I struggle to recognise and connect with my internal image of myself.
This causes me to visualise my body as the extremes of when it is posed rather than its natural fluid state.
So today when I took these photos I was left surprised. Sure these snapshots only show minor changes in my body shape as it wiggled about. But to me they showed my body in a whole new light.
A light I've never been exposed to before.
This is something I found really helpful in gaining a better perception of what my body actually looks like rather than the internal image I have of it. Which, as anyone who has BDD or poor body image will tell you, isn't an easy feat.
So I would like to challenge you all to do the same and expose yourself to your body in natural movement. Whether it's a burst of photos of you wiggling about having fun or a video of you just moving from shape to shape.
Whatever it is, give it a go and see if it helps you reconnect your body image also?

bye bye london - see you shortly πŸ™βœ¨πŸ‘€πŸ˜¬ this trip was everything I wanted it to be; I have met incredible people that have made me more excited for the future and what I have planned. I want to talk about vulnerability because that is something that was a massive theme in my visit this last week. for so many years I would never let anyone see my vulnerable side because the simple thought of not being in control or fear of judgment, rejection or mockery was just too overwhelming this in return made me miss so many opportunities I was more than capable of doing. as I have been working on myself and slowly testing the water with getting out of my comfort zones that's where the real magic has been happeningπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’– as soon as you let your guard down and do things that you wish you could do with all your heart but find it challenging is when you will grow and experience amazing things. I am on a mission to achieve and be successful in things I have been brought up being told I could not do in this body. It is an incredible feeling to actually FEEL your self confidence and belief in yourself begin to sparkle and grow. Yes it is petrifying challenging those deep engrained beliefs on yourself but it get's easier TRUST ME - and the sense or achievement and happiness you reap is worth every step.

Safely arrived in Singapore πŸ˜ƒ here's some more pictures of me in my #albertomakali dress 😁Remember that different angles and lights completely change how you look on camera. Check out the last pictures in this group to see what I mean. Sat down I look much bigger than standing up and angled sideways. No matter what you are beautiful at ANY size! πŸ˜ƒπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• What have you all been up to this weekend? πŸ’• #pcoswarrior #MessalinaMorley #inbetweengirl

Caj dude date look. Ready for ramen with my bros. 🍜

You know what, I’m not gonna do a long-winded caption this time. Let the trolls come for me.
.
When I do a post like this I usually do a lot of explaining because I still feel the need to prove myself.
.
I could talk about my mental illnesses and eating disorders.
.
I could give a detailed account of who I was on the left compared to who I am now.
.
But not tonight. I don’t have to tell my full story on every damn post to try to keep people from attacking me.
.
All I want is for you to know that your worth is not determined by the size of your body. Don’t let people tell you that life is better after losing weight.
.
If I continued on the same warpath that girl on the left was on I would be dead by now.
.
I have grown emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and yes, physically. I was fit and now I am fat. But I was weak and now I am strong. And I would still choose this version of myself before ever going back.

Reposting to wish you a great weekend πŸ’›πŸŒˆMany of you have already asked me to talk about height and I'm happy to answer your requests. Being very honest, my height was never something that really bothered me so much (I'm 5ft 6) except when I was becoming a teenager. At that time I was taller than some boys and I felt extremely uncomfortable about it - maybe because they were joking about my developing body constantly. Then I grew up and I started to feel good about how tall I am, but one thing continues to bother me: we live in a society where there is a standard when it comes to height, especially in straight relationships. The height difference between two people is a subject to prejudice, most of the time if the man is lower than the woman - people find it kind of weird and I admit that I did not totally get rid of this idea until this day. As if I felt less feminine near a man who is shorter than me and this is very wrong - it's something I have to work inside my mind. The concept that men should always be tall and strong and that women are frail and delicate is something surreal and it makes many people feel uncomfortable with themselves . We exist in many shapes and sizes and this should never interfere with relationships or how we feel about ourselves. Being a tall person is just wonderful as being a short person - they are just different perspectives and experiences. That's all. What we can not forget is that we are all valid, beautiful, important and this is not determined by any physical characteristics πŸŒ»πŸ’› #bopo #bopowarrior #bodypositive #bodypositivity #art #selflove #loveyourself #ilustra #ilustração #illustration #draw #dibujo #doodle #drawing #loveyourself #tallgirls #shortgirls #height #tall #diversity #allbodiesarebeautiful

How I get pumped for a workout:
1. Blast some music
2. Drink my fav pre workout
3. Count down from 5 & freaking do it!!
5..4..3..2..1..FRIDAY FIGHT NIGHT time πŸ’ͺπŸ’–πŸ€˜

I have honestly been so busy that I have not been able to update my blog, build a new makeup website, post pictures of clothes and bargains or update my travel calendar to reflect my speaking engagements. 😩 I need a PR Maven or Brand Strategist like yesterday. 😩 So when I get shouted out from pages like @plussizestylewatch and @plusthisshow it's an extra special blessing because it solidifies that people nationally are taking notice! And I'm not even operating at full capacity... I know when God completely removes the veil, this thing is gonna blow! Thank you guys for featuring me, it keeps me inspired to get out my dreams. Thank you! #igotface #plusmodel #publicspeaker #girlpower #bopowarrior #bodypositive #mochamom #honormycurves #beautyexpert #onairpersonality #ootd #instagood #fashion #fashionblogger #itfactor #styleforeverybody #instafashion #ccworldofcurves #whoislateshalipscomb

This one goes out to all the girls out there trying to love themselves in a world that's constantly telling them not to❣️

Allowing myself to truly relax is not one of my talents.
_
There's some masochistic comfort I find in pushing myself to the edge. Even when I'm at home "relaxing", more often than not this looks like lazily playing Polytopia instead of unwinding and assessing how I feel.
_
In my home practice, savasana and balasana are my most skipped poses. "Why would I just lay there for 5 minutes?" Letting myself let go of everything instead of mindlessly blocking out what I'm avoiding is so difficult, but so rewarding.
_
What a beautiful time to get back to the basics: autumnal equinox. Instead of revving up this fall, here's to teaching myself to let go and just be.

I know that I'm perfect , even though I'm fucked up😍⭐
Rock it girl, you're gorgeous πŸ’‹

One thing I've really learned to love on my #intuitiveeating journey has been cooking. And not the type of cooking one does to control what is being put into everything, the type of cooking that involves measuring and weighing everything that takes the joy out of eating. No, I've learned to love the type of cooking that involves experimenting (and sometimes failing) with new flavors and ingredients. The kind of cooking that teaches me what I find satisfying, what textures intrigue me, what smells warm me. The type of cooking where I don't feel like food has the power. The type of cooking that I can put love into; love for my body, my soul, my family, my life. The experience of being with food and not being afraid of it is so freeing. Tonight I grilled my first burger (usually the hubs does all the grilling but I wanted to learn!) and sat down with my family and enjoyed a delicious meal made with love. Ps- it was darn good too!
