If you won’t take care of you... who will?

▫️At 300+lbs, when I started traveling*, I realized something.. (coincidentally, as I climbed a mountainous hill in the 105° heat headed towards a beach full of thonged bronzed bodies)... I realized that my body was NOT cooperating with my wants, needs, nor daily itinerary.
▫️All of the walking in the heat had worn me down (literally, chaffed everywhere, including my self esteem) & I was exhausted before we even got to where we were going, physically & mentally. Everything a chore, almost to the point of me not wanting to participate. Besides the daily challenge of completing physical tasks others weren’t even breaking a sweat over.. it was frustrating feeling like a massive presence, yet also, invisible; no clothes my size, treated as if I were “one of the guys” or like I wasn’t even there, feeling like I let myself go beyond repair with my daily life woes, toxic relationships, anxiety & depression, and feeling a little... well, hopeless.
▫️I wanted to change. If I wasn’t going to take care of me.. who would? If my body failed me, there’d be NO way I’d be traveling anywhere! (Or, accomplishing all of my other goals in life) I had to be healthier. I had to change. It was then, on a rooftop in Mexico*, that I decided to show myself the love that I was seeking. Self care means more than just cardio, clean eating, staying hydrated, & moisturized. A large part of this journey, for me, is a mental one... It’s discovering your strength. It’s re-awaking your passions. It’s learning to love yourself. It’s being you. Take care of you.

Wow @lexiemarieelmore down 76 pounds in 6 months, still going strong... Let's show her some love ❤️

I remember when I used to weigh so much. I had difficulties on going to the beach, to the restaurant or even going out. I promised to myself that I will have changed, but I never had the courage.
Nowadays, I live my life in a different way, but the message I would like to give you is the following: if somebody has cheated on you, if you have problems with your schoolmates, or you have a dream you think it cannot come true, just think about the fact that life fucks you, it’s true, but it will always give you the opportunity to change, to restart, to fight. It just takes time, efforts and patience. When you ask me: “how long did it take?” I may ask: “2 years”. But it’s not. Because our mind needs A LOT OF TIME to find a solution to a problem, even if it’s in front of us. We don’t take it at all. But we’re human, it’s a part of a plan. We need it to become strong. Believe in a new life, you will thank yourself one day.
🎼”Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one'll love you as you are
But I won't let them break me down to dust
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me.
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me.”🎟🎪
Don’t be scared to be seen. @giuliasjourney
