Target runs are a lot more fun with that cute little stinker😍 and when I say stinker, I mean literal stinker because someone had a huuuuge BLOWOUT while we were there🙃 That’s probably what she was working on while she was smiling in this picture💩 •
This “happy mama” sweater was the softest most comfortable thing and as I was taking a shameless selfie and saw my sweet Violet smiling in the mirror my heart felt like it was going to burst!💓 Being her mama has challenged me and pushed me in ways that I had never experienced before, but it has also shown me a kind of love and happiness that I never knew existed. I love my sweet sunshine girl✨
This was also a moment of celebration for a pretty sweet non scale victory! These pants are a size FOUR! WHAT?!😱 I have always worn anywhere between a size 8-12 and before having Vivi I was wearing a 6-8.. to say I was shocked is an understatement! What was even more surprising to me, is how it wasn’t as important to me as I thought it would be🤷🏼♀️ Yeah it was cool that I was wearing a size 4, but the world didn’t stop turning😂 My heart was full because my beautiful daughter was happy, smiling and talking to herself in the mirror and I looked at my body with admiration that it brought her here💓 Size 0, size 4, size 10, size 20 guess what? It doesn’t matter! The size on our clothes DOES NOT DEFINE US! Let me repeat that: the size on our clothes and the number on the scale DOES NOT DEFINE YOU! Violet doesn’t care what size of pants I wear and I don’t either. Let your heart be happy, don’t get caught up in the numbers and stop hating on your body!🙌🏼
Since December started, I’ve stayed pretty consistent in my weight. Not really losing, not really gaining. 😳 I haven’t been as on top of my diet as I’d like to be, and I know that as the rest of the month progresses and all of the Christmas parties and holiday get togethers ensue, I’ll continue to remain stagnant. I set a goal to reach the 220’s by 2020 (only about 6 pounds away) and while I know it’s doable, I’m wrestling with whether or not it’s “worth it”. 👀 Now, I’m not talking about throwing out all of my progress, binge eating and being careless until the new year, but I also don’t know if I want to pass up on my favourite foods at my favourite time of year, either. 🙅🏼♀️ As many of you know, it’s HARD being the odd person out in a room - the person who is always saying “no” or who brought their own healthier alternatives. 🥗 I’ve decided to still pursue my goal, and try to shed these last few pounds before the end of the month. But I’m also going to embrace good food and good times with friends and family and set intentional cheat meals for myself. 👅 I’m in no rush to get where I want to go, and I don’t want to start January off feeling disappointed in myself for not hitting a number on the scale, or regretting that I didn’t participate in my favourite season. 🎄So, here’s to celebrating the holidays however the fuck you want to! 🍻 Eat, drink and be merry ya filthy animals. 🤪 Also, a shameless selfie because I’m feelin’ kinda cute today. 🥰
#top9#nsv What a year 2019 has been!! Only 3 weeks left of the year and I am determined to stay motivated and continue training/eating well whilst also having a few gins and mince pies! (When I say a few gins, on Saturday MANY gins). All about the balance baby ⚖️
Earlier this year our assistant director moved away and offered her sweatshirt to me. It is a large. At first I said no, but she said if no one took it she would just be getting rid of it. These sweatshirts aren't cheap, so I said, "Ok. I can use it as a goal shirt." Tada! It's a little snug and not how I like to wear my sweatshirts. I prefer to wear them baggy, but I felt comfortable enough in it to wear it to work today, so GOAL ACCOMPLISHED for this shirt. I have a long way to go, by today, I'm celebrating how far I have come! #nsv#intermittentfastingnsv#intermittentfastingwomen#weightlossperks#weightlossjourney
Started back working out today. Wishing I could go into an actual gym like I used to 2 years ago but for now I will settle for the treadmill in my garage and the Nike app. Life is so busy. I have only 17 more pounds to lose until I’m at my lifetime goal. 💪🏻
Sometimes I feel like I need to bake something into existence. And just because I’m baking it, that doesn’t give me an excuse to binge eat it or endulge in it myself. When I was at my heaviest, I would have never been able to just bring these to work. I would be grazing in the break room, pocketing cookies into my coat all day. Today, I brought these in, set them in the back and moved on. Everyone loved them and I felt so accomplished for overcoming something from my past.
‼️There is no benefit to be found in negative relationships.‼️
Yet so many fat-loss journeys begin with creating negative relationships with the very things a person enjoys.🤯
The perfect question to ask yourself in relation to this is, “do I truly believe that getting the body and health outcome that I want will make me happy….if I have to cut out everything else that makes me happy to get it?”.🤔
Putting foods into categories of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, really puts them into categories of ‘foods to fear or not’.
👉It also turns social events, such as parties, from exciting events to look forward to, to ‘diet-ruining’ events that make us anxious all week before, miserable during, and guilt ridden afterwards.
And even if we are successful on such a plan, we will have:
⛔️ Hated the process
⛔️ Created a negative association between fat-loss and quality of life
⛔️ A future of maintaining our fat-loss through continued drudgery, or losing it again by returning to the lifestyle that made us gain weight in the first place.
Nothing about any of this is positive.
Imagine a house. 🏡
If we try to keep our houses continually picture perfect, we drive ourselves round the bend and never get to fully enjoy our home.😫
Whilst if we continually party all the time, the house falls apart and we then can’t do much with it at all.😱
But, if we keep our house in order as best we can, have a house party sometimes, tidy up, and carry on, we get to enjoy our homes in numerable ways.😄👍
⚖️ This balance works the same with a fat-loss journey.
Rather than put foods into categories of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ (‘allowed’ or ‘banned’), instead ask yourself,
“Is the mixture of more nutritious and less nutritious foods that I’m currently consuming pointing me in the direction I want to go?”.
✅ If not, tweak the amounts to find the balance.
Do let me know if this was helpful

Swipe to see the story on the belts lately 😅 ya girl don’t have the bank roll to support the multiple wardrobe purchases needed 🤦🏻♀️ I can’t lie..I’m definitely not mad at this problem, but it does make getting dressed in the morning a little frustrating. #nsv sorta 🤪

Total non scale victory! I purchased this jacket soon after surgery for my upcoming trip to New England. I may have been a bit overzealous and ordered 3 sizes down from my normal size. As soon as I submitted the order I realized everyone was saying it runs small, so I just knew it wasn’t going to fit. And it didn’t. As a matter of fact, it was so small that I knew there was no way it would fit before January.
I couldn’t even forcefully pull the zippers together (especially around the chest area), let alone ZIP the damn thing. So I planned to send it back and order the next size up.
Today, for the hell of it, I decided to give it another go. It was definitely still a bit snug, but it zipped! I still have a month before my trip so I’m pretty sure I will have no problems wearing this when the time comes. Not only am I excited, but I’m 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐝!
Disclaimer: please don’t mind my dirty mirror. I hate dirty mirror pictures but didn’t have the time to clean it today lol.
Maybe if I saw more bodies like mine while growing up, I would’ve treated it better.
Maybe I wouldn’t have binged and starved countless times.
Maybe I wouldn’t have inflicted pain and suffering on my own skin and mind.
Maybe I would’ve appreciated myself more and let people take advantage of me less.
Maybe a lot of things could have been different.
But I’m here now. And maybe I can be that body for someone else.
Don’t let lumps, bumps, dimples, stretch marks, curves, rolls, loose skin, blemishes and imperfections determine your worth.
Maybe it’s holding you back from becoming the person you’re meant to be.
🚨Non-Scale Victory Alert!🚨
When I bought this vest, I couldn’t zip it up. I bought it anyway because I thought it was cute.⭐️
Today I put it on and it totally zips! Like holy moly!!⭐️
In her book “Girl, Wash Your Face”, @msrachelhollis talks about how we are not defined by our weight, but we ARE defined by how well we take care of our body.⭐️
YES, I am losing weight. But that’s not because I am on some crazy crash diet. No, instead, about 5 months ago, I took a hard look in the mirror and decided I needed to take care of my body. I changed my life so that my daily habits included healthy food, exercise, and personal development. It’s not easy, it takes work and discipline, but it’s possible if you want it bad enough.⭐️
I swear when I zipped this vest up this morning, I heard my body whisper, “Thank you.”⭐️

Still hard to believe I made it to 155lbs and I’m literally half the person I was when I started this journey. •
Still working towards my goals for the end of the year, some of which have been harder than others...BUT I haven’t given up •
Keep transforming every day and don’t forget how far you’ve come ❤️ #TransformationTuesday
When I quit drinking, I lost a lot of friends.
I had people laugh at me,
and I had them question my reasoning behind why I was giving alcohol up.
I have been pressured a lot to,
“just have a sip”,
and I’ve had people make me feel like I wasn’t worth hanging out with because I couldn’t “have fun” like they could.
It was really hard for me to navigate not just getting sober on my own,
but also the people I thought were close to me not supporting my decisions.
As well as, looking around...
the temptation is everywhere.
I go to a restaurant, I’m presented with the happy hour drink specials.
I hang out with my family, they drink.
I go to an event/concert, alcohol.
I do my grocery shopping, “how are you doing ma’am? Would you like to sample this wine?”.
But if there is anything I know it’s this,
•My willpower and determination is off the chain 😎 so i knew it was just one more thing I’d have to fight through.
•If your circle doesn’t support you and your decisions, it’s time for a new circle.
And honestly, as harsh as that sounds..
Everyone has their season in your life.
And as we grow, and change, its completely normal to want to surround yourself with people who support you & cheer you on!
I always get asked if I plan on drinking again.
And I don’t know the answer to that 🤷🏼♀️
but what I do know is that I have come this far,
and I’m proud of that.
And I have shown myself that I can overcome and rise above something that was trying to control and destroy me.
I am in control now, and I’ve never been happier ♥️ #SobrietyRocks
