In April, I finally decided to see a doctor about my lack of weight loss. The recommended diets - low carb, keto, paleo didn’t work. I was stage 3 obesity- I’m now in stage 2. It’s a learning process to find what works for my body. 10 more lbs until my next milestone. #igotthis#fatgirl#caloriecounting#weightloss
I absolutely loved doing this! Took inspiration from @full_of_freckles_illustrations and let my mind relax a little around content and appearances.
I’m always convinced I’m flakey and haven’t got a “style”, apparently I underestimate myself and my skills. I LOVE the way she turned out and I’m getting so much more confident “free flowing” bases and bodies rather than using reference guides for ideas.
Go join in the challenge and tag @full_of_freckles_illustrations (and me!) S x
TGIF!! It’s sweater type weather this morning!! Going to open the windows and get some fresh air this morning 😊

A SURPRISE BLAST FROM THE PAST :: 📚 Yesterday as I was scrolling my phone for a throwback image I stumbled onto a video I didn’t remember creating.
🎞 Perhaps someday I’ll share it here (when I’m ready) with all of you. For now, it was a video message I recorded to ME from that girl on the left.
😳 Have you ever made a video msg to yourself?!? It’s shocking to stumble across, but genius in its intent.
📝 In the video I’m clearly over 400
lbs. I’m also clearly trying to convince myself that life was still worth living, that I was worthy, and entirely capable of succeeding at whatever I CHOSE (again shocking to hear the depressed you talking about having hope).
🙍♀️The video was from Feb of 2016. It took me another YEAR AND TWO MONTHS to finally take action. But that girl was right about one thing!! I WAS (AND AM) entirely capable of doing far greater things than I ever imagined.
⬇️ 169 lbs down now (and counting). My life has never been better, nor I more grounded, functional or happy. I FINALLY BELIEVE HER. See it doesn’t matter where you’ve been, because right now it’s about where you want to be next.
❣️I have no regrets. Everything happens for a reason and perhaps that reason is why I’m writing to you today!
📱 Maybe you don’t have a video diary hidden on your phone to tell you YOU CAN, and that YOU HAVE everything you need to make real change possible in your life, but I’m here today telling you! YOU CAN and YOU ARE entirely capable of so much more than you think!
💌 IF natural weight loss, positive self-love, fulfillment, joy and health are something you want, there’s a link in my bio labeled START HERE, and I’d love to talk with you.
