Pictures from yesterday. And warning sappy weight loss post ahead. Yesterday I did a 5K. I never thought those words would come out of my mouth. Even though we power walked through it and stopped to take pictures of / with the awesome Halloween decorations, it’s still something I never thought I would be able to do or even want to do. One year and ten months ago I weighed over 300 pounds. I was absolutely miserable and hated myself. I would be completely out of breath just walking up stairs. Thinking back to that time I realize my life could have gone every differently. I could still be that girl, probably in worse condition. I’m so thankful that somehow something in my brain clicked and for the one millionth time starting a diet, I actually stuck with it. I’m so happy with the person I’ve become and excited to see what the future brings. Sorry I know this is sappy, but you were warned. Also, I’m also thankful for great friends like @rdh_archer for not only being a great friend but killing it at the gym with me. Her progress is amazing as well and I’m so happy for her. 🖤🎃 #5k#halloween5k#wedidit#proudofus#weightloss#over100lbslost#caloriecounting#myfitnesspal#nevergiveup
Cakes Romeo, NYC 2000⚡️even you may laugh, painting this wholecar was deeply spiritual experience for me as a young kid from Eastern Europe. That night I realised I can achive anything I want. “Key to the victory is not a mystery.” 🙏🏼 @romeofilms You will find this photo in POINT OF SPACE book #newyork#newyorksubway#wholecar#nyc2000#wedidit#dsk

💙🌈jak tęcza po deszczu🌈💙
To chyba najpiękniejsze określenie emocji po naszej czwartej premierze.
Ta premiera była dla nas wyjątkowa, bo mogliśmy odkryć w sobie prawdziwą BOŻĄ RADOŚĆ, w końcu jeśli nie staniemy się jak dzieci, to nie wejdziemy do Królestwa Niebieskiego! 💙
Dziękujemy wszystkim, którzy byli z nami. Mamy nadzieję, że po tym spektaklu w Was również obudziła się prostota i radość.
Mamy tylko CHWILĘ, nie żyjmy w TFikcji, nie karmmy kłamstwa i strachu, zacznijmy patrzeć inaczej, uwierzmy w siebie, w swoje piękno.. Niebo jest tutaj.. tworzę je JA i TY ☁
ON dedykuje każdemu z nas kolejny wschód słońca.
I caught myself in love with my body today. It was actually really weird. I woke up at 4:30 am and was getting dressed for the gym and caught a glimpse of my back. I liked the way it arced and the shape of my body. Then when I was running on the track today I saw my shoulders and thought “this body is perfect.” I was caught off guard by the love I felt for this incredibly scarred, stretchy, jiggly, and imperfect body. I was surprised by how much I adored the curve of my back right above my butt. I then remembered all the excess skin I carried around for months. I thought about how I used to stand in the mirror and just imagine what my body could look like under that 13 pounds of flesh... I would dream about my body. It was hard when I was first denied my skin removal surgery. I had to face the reality that I might never see this skin removed and if I did it would be a very long time. I still have a lot of excess skin on my thighs and arms. I also will need to have s breast augmentation at some point. I actually need to have another stomach surgery if I want a perfectly “flat tummy.” With all that makes my body flawed by the standards of society all I can see today is it’s glorious transformation. It’s been 21 weeks since I had my skin removal surgery. I realized today how much I have truly changed. It’s more than just a physical change, I have accidentally fallen in love with myself. So on #waistwednesday I’m sharing this intimate moment of a woman fully embracing love for her flawed body. Thank you all so much for loving my body along side me. Our family grew to 11k today. All I have is gratitude. I love you guys!
