The loose skin on my right arm used to bug the hell out of me. To the point I wore really big shirts to hide it. That line in the middle is actually a deep stretch mark. My arm was so big from being close to 300 lbs that it created two of them!
I get pretty giddy when my arms are huge from all the hardwork that is slowly taking shape.
Hardwork pays off! It truly does! ❤ 💪. All it took was getting off the couch. No more binge watching t.v. and let's not forget eating better. Muscles need real food!

It’s a gift they are no longer in your presence. It may not feel this way but you must trust that their removal will bring you peace. It will bring you time to be yourself again. It will bring you new opportunities that weren’t quite ready before. It will be what was meant to happen all along. Just please stop blaming yourself.
I’ve fallen a several times but now I think I’m good. It’s my first time not breaking down back in depression in several years in this time of the year where there’s bad weather, bad thoughts and bad motivations... but this autumn was my best moments for a long time. Finally I see progression ❤️ Petite ouverture de mon grand cœur
J’ai eu beaucoup de rechute dépressive durant ces dernières années, mais heureusement, je surmonte ces difficultés. Cet automne fut le premier en milliers d’années que j’ai pas craquer, que j’ai su surmonter des niveaux de stress sans briser ou rechuter dans de sombres pensées... en plus que l’automne donne le « vibe » de la mauvaise température, des pensées troublantes et de la perte de motivation... ça faisait longtemps que je m’étais senti libéré d’une façon et à la fois en plein contrôle de ce qui se passe dans ma vie. Après milles efforts, je vois enfin de la progression 🧡 « En chute libre » est une illustration que j’ai fait sous une pensée positive et une pensée de confiance. Bonne soirée et bon mardi enneigé ❄️❄️ #illustrations#mentalhealth#depression#autumn#meandmycat#happier#control#christmasiscoming#thistimeoftheyear
So lets talk body positivity and mental health awarness for just a moment. The picture on the left was me going into my senior year. Just months before I met Eric. All throughout high school, I fought many battles. Ultimately I just wanted control so I controlled what I ate and didn't eat. A few people voiced concerns but it wasn't enough. I was also in a 3 year relationship that was purely toxic on both of our parts. We weren't right for eachother. The mental abuse was rampant and I was broken down on almost a daily basis. I withheld food and self harmed by cutting. Every day was a struggle - infact, it's still a struggle.
Fast forward nearly 8 years later and about 70 lbs heavier. I still fight battles and struggle with my image. But the difference is I am reminded every day multiple times a day that I'm beautiful and loved. Although I still have insecurities about my body, I am happier than ever and I'm learning to love myself.
I've been open about my weightloss journey in the past but I'm done. I wasn't doing it for myself. I was doing it to try to fit an image I though I was suppose to uphold. Tonight I sobbed on my bathroom floor because something didn't fit right. I looked in the mirror and asked myself "what the f××× am I crying for?" I cried because I failed to live up to an unrealistic image I set for myself.
For now on, I'm focusing on self love and general health over trying to get back into my highschool jeans.
I just want to say: mental health is real. Mental abuse is real. Being able to love yourself is real. Getting better is real ❤ day by day. Keep going.
