I was looking at old photos with a friend, reminiscing about Summer ️ of 2019. We went to Florida for a quick girls' trip -- I remembered we went to the beach and I wore this neon green suit given by my friend. Now if you know KNOW me, I would never wear that because I'm pretty shy and insecure . That day, I gave in to peer pressure...and you know what, it was very liberating.

I never wore that suit again, but for that day, I really felt sexy. I never was comfy in my body. My weight was all over the place since childhood, but at some point I was obsessed with working out. 6-7 days a week, one to two hours a day. I was at my lowest weight and pretty bangin', but I still didn't feel content. I knew at that point, I needed to dig deeper.
Fast forward 2020....
I finally found a balance. I realized I was getting fit for the wrong reasons. I stopped caring about what people think. I ate what I wanted and COVID definitely made me gain 20-25 lbs. but IDGAF.... I'm so happy . I still workout (but less), eat a balanced diet with some sweet indulgences from time to time. I feel great. I got really thicc, but I honestly love it. I feel like a woman who is more empowered versus my fitter self who secretly had no self-confidence.
[more cushion for the ...... uhm yea. ]
[be healthy. body, mind, and soul]
some say I got "fat" but guess what, I am PHAT.
