“I never started this page wanting to inspire others or promote myself. I was 23, weighing in at 353lbs, and wanting a safe space to share my journey. I didn’t want to be that drastically overweight girl tagging herself in at the gym, and having people in my daily life inserting an eyeroll emoji, because I truly believe we alllllll know people like that. I wanted a place to share my progress after gastric bypass, to see recipes, find a support system. I wanted a place where I felt like people believed in me, that I wasn’t just another fat girl who could never lose the weight, I needed a space to prove I was going to do this.
I wanted to be held accountable, to be supported and uplifted, & that’s truly what I’ve found here with this community on Instagram!
People ask me what my biggest secret to success is, and I have to say, it’s this page. It’s the feeling of accountability I get when posting meals, gym time, daily struggles, fashion after weight loss, just my LIFE. “
