My name is Noelle. I have been obese most of my adult life. I became morbidly obese about 4 years ago. I avoided scales, mirrors and cameras for a long time. In June of last year I took my children to the zoo and they were forced to wait for me every 10-15 min due to back pain and being out of breath. This was not the life I wanted for my children. It was time for a change. I decided to face the scale. Stepped on and it said 414 pounds. I was devastated. I decided at that moment that I had to completely change my lifestyle for good or I wasn't going to be around much longer. I started my journey July 29th, 2016 and on my 1 year anniversary I hit 207 pounds (half my body weight). I feel amazing and have so much energy. I now get to enjoy my life with my children....hiking, zip lining, swinging and so much more. Progress not perfection. Huge part of losing weight is believing You Can Do It and realizing it's not going to happen over night. Starting at 414 pounds, I set small goals for myself. If I focused on needing to lose 200 plus pounds, I would've been easily discouraged and overwhelmed. I focused on getting to 399 and then set 20 pound goals for myself. I hit 4 plateaus that would last 2 to 3 weeks and one that lasted almost a month. Stuck to my goals through all of them....why? Because this is a lifestyle change. Whether the scale is moving or not, I am improving my health every day by making the right food choices and moving my body. Remember to never give up what you want most for what you want today.

I am not acceptable on social standards. Too old. Too fat. Not the right curves in the right places. But goddamn I am beautiful. #effyourstandards.

Instagram is ridiculous with its policies about reporting accounts. You can fucking censor as much as you can and some Jane or John will get a wild hair up their ass and report something because a hint of a nipple or a buttcrack. @model_lillias makes a living based on her following, which is something I think all of us can aspire to. Making a living by making art?!? Hell yeah. Give her a follow on her new account! @model_lillias As someone who also makes a living by who follows my work, I know how devastating this must be. #effyourstandards #effyourbodystandards #freethenipple #fuckyourstandards

Relaxing in the afternoon sun is the best way to spend a day off. Love being out in nature. It is a freeing place where I can escape the everyday pressure of social norms. Learning to love my body for how it has always been and how it always will be has been the hardest social norm to defeat. We are actually all socialized right from the get go to not love our bodies because it is very profitable for someone to do so. From diet pills to health magazines encouraging drastic unhealthy weight drops, they've got most of us sold on it. Don't buy into the nonsense. #nudeinnature #bodypositive #bodypositivity #fatgirlscanhike #plussize #pnwnude #thickthighssavelives #thickthighs #curvesinalltherightplaces #curvygirl #curvy #curvywomen

Sitting here reflecting on the past year. I am not the person I was a year ago. Maybe this is what I needed, maybe I needed a change. I am stronger than I was and ready to take on the world and what is planned for me. It has been a bumpy road. I am proud of myself for pushing through it. I am not going to say "this will be best year of my life" or any of that bullshit. What I will say is, I am ready for the rest of my life and I will make it as best as I can. I am a fighter and strong and I will not give up! ๐Ÿป cheers to a life of happiness โ˜บ๏ธ

Do your kiddos get along with your animals?

Holly has been a little rough in the past, but she does so good with them now ๐Ÿ˜ป

Drop the negative self talk day! Lotus peeps, We are our own worst critic. So, what's one thing you can drop today and what's one thing you can be kind to yourself about today? ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

#progressnotperfection

This took eating 80% clean 20% ๐Ÿฝ

This took working out on the days I didn't "feel" like it, the days I felt like shit, and the days that I was so busy that it would've been much easier to say, "nah not today". I thought eating clean and working out was stupid until I realized a part of why I felt like so much crap was because of what I was fueling my body with: crap!
Next Monday I am starting Round 2 of my workout and meal plan.

You can join me for free for 2 weeks where I can help you find a workout plan that YOU enjoy and I will help you find a meal plan that goes with that workout๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ AND you get support and encouragement from my support group, all you have to do is message me ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ’Œ

We have started focusing on the "p" sound with Holly at home and also at speech, she's soooo close! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ

It's a good day.
There's been some bullshit attempts, but I'm gonna ignore them until they either blow the fuck IP into a shit storm, or they Just go away.
Keep your crap to yourself please.
I have work to do and a 12th bday to get ready for!
Yesterday's message was followed by someone PMing me to tell me Who they thought it was, and to let me know that That particular person had messaged them more than a Dozen times to ask about me. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
If you're reading this Now, you know who you are, Please leave Me, my family and friends alone. Trust me, we're better off.
There are lots of people that I used to know that I want NOTHING to do with anymore for lots of different reasons, the main one being they were not good for my happiness.
Let it go Elsa. Out with all the ppl and things that don't help make you happy. It's REALLY WORTH IT.

It's easy to get distracted. In fact it's going to happen especially while moving. The idea is to focus and bring yourself back to the present while working out. One way to do this is to tell your self " ok I'm drifting, now time to focus" or focus on the breath, also you want to lessen the risk of potential injury. This takes some time to get use to, just keep these thoughts in mind. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿปโค๏ธ any questions comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป
