The struggles I endure are because of choices that I made. I’m broke and overworked because I walked away from stability to chase a career that set my spirit on fire. I made that choice. I did that. I’m broken hearted over a man I walked away from because I decided that I deserved more and no longer wanted to compromise my future. I made that choice too. When I look at the fire I’m walking through in my life, it’s just a reminder that I’m fucking strong and my self worth is so high that I made the hard choices to get myself where I felt I needed to be. The fire inside me is brighter than the fire around me. 🔥 Every time I get stressed or down or question where I am... I remind myself that I’m here because I wanted to be. I’m here because I’m fighting for my future. So whatever life throws at me now... I’ll take it. I fought for my future the day I decided to have surgery and I’ll continue to fight for what I want until my last breath. Don’t ever stop advocating for yourself. Don’t ever settle. Don’t ever let anyone tell you you’ve had enough... Put yourself where you want to be. Period. 👊🏻♥️
Chloe and her new fire mind set and motivation
I still feel like the girl 8 years ago. 121kg and so unhappy. Look at that expression in the middle photo... But I'm totally not her now. And while I didn't start with Casper 8 years ago, I found Casper when I was 105kg in September last year, absolutely desperate to not get back to 121kg again. Currently bouncing around 87-89kg, size 12/14top 14/16butt -lwhich I'm chuffed with for now. Fat is still disappearing, body getting stronger.
How awesome is life with Casper! Foundations for a better future. It's not easy. You will argue with yourself a lot 😂 but you got this whanau
So proud of you Chloe ❤️
Life just got really weird at my house. Flannel sheets and a heated blanket...never thought I’d see that day. Being cold is definitely not one of my favorite side effects of this surgery, but things could always be worse right??
