Every single thing we see in the world is filtered through our own perception.... and that includes us. Sometimes that filter isn’t accurate because of our own experiences. If your filter is hazy or damaged, it doesn’t allow you to see yourself accurately, but rather through a misrepresentation that has been discolored by the pain that life can sometimes bring. When our own filter is faulty, we are quick to take on the opinions of others. Don’t allow the negative words of hateful people to affect your view of yourself. Stand strong in who you know you are. 💪💪 #standstrong #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #iloveme #iamenough #garbage #opinions #selfworth #selflovefirst #dailyinspiration #imworthit #womenencouragingwomen #trustgod #proverbs31woman #kindnessmatters #godlywoman #selfconfidence #imokay #justbeyou #diversity #difference #imdifferent #standupforyourself #iloveme #shewillrise #mondaymood #keepingitreal #genuine

In a world where we are constantly trying to be smarter, thinner, look younger, keep up with our friends and family, and achieve more—just stop for a second and realize that all you really need to be is YOU. Living by comparison is a trap, it’s the enemy of joy. It’s okay to want to be your very best self, but make sure you’re doing that for you, not to keep up with someone else. Stop and consider the world needs you exactly as you are. At the end of the day when you take your final breath, it’s all between you and God anyway and nothing you’ve obtained or attained is going to make a difference then. Be who God created you to be.... just be you. #justbeyou #justbe #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #godisfaithful #trustgod #proverbs31woman #godlywoman #faith #stopcomparing #imme #iamme #selfexpression #godisfaithful #individuality #genuine #genuinepeople #dailymotivation #happygirls #happygirlsaretheprettiest #iloveme #beingme #comfortableinmyskin #selfconfidence #proudofmyself #gentle #selflovewarrior #saturdayvibes #laughteristhebestmedicine

“You live and you learn.” I’ve found that isn’t always true. Many times, we repeat the same mistakes over and over. I know for most of my life I dated the exact same man, he was just housed in a different body with a different face. Then I kept wondering why things never worked out. George Santayana said, “those who choose to forget the past are condemned to relive it.” Until we dig through our past and figure out the inner force that is driving our poor decisions, we will continue to make the same mistakes. Healing requires real effort and a strong determination to change. While change is difficult, without it, growth cannot occur. ❤️❤️ #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #healingjourney #heartbroken #brokenheart #leavehimalone #movingonquotes #choosejoy #chooseyou #trustgodsplan #jesuscalling #iamenough #dontgoback #fridayvibes #inspiringquotes #dailymotivation #youdeservebetter #wlscommunity #yougogirl #betteroffalone #itwillbeokay #silverlining #godisfaithful #imgood #braveheart #courageous #loveme #breakupquotes #breakup #overit

Valentine 11 Learning how to say no, is one of the most life-changing gifts you can give yourself. When we feel less-than, we have a tendency to do everything anyone asks of us, because we don’t want anyone to be upset with us. People don’t respect you when you don’t respect yourself. I used to bend over backwards trying to do everything for everyone. I never wanted to upset anyone by saying no—I couldn’t help that time. What that did was make me even unhappier because I felt taken advantage of and I secretly and not-so-secretly resented it and then felt worse about myself for letting people blatantly take advantage of me. It’s a vicious cycle. Helping others is a wonderful thing to do, but not when it becomes codependence. If you don’t take care of yourself first, you can’t help anyone else. Boundaries are a beautiful thing. #selfrespect #boundaries #healthyboundaries #justsayno #dowhatsright #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #trippin #beyourownvalentine #14daysofvalentines #valentinesday2019 #stupidcupid #novalentine #valentinesdaygift #smartgirl #clevergirl #shewillrise #queen 👑 #iamenough #takeadvantage #nomore #movingon #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #metoo #womenencouragingwomen #dailyinspiration

Valentine 8 Walking away from someone or something that is unhealthy or no longer serves us, can be incredibly difficult. Self-respect sometimes dictates, though, that we close doors and move forward. When it’s necessary, be brave enough to break your own heart. #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #14daysofvalentines #valentines #valentinesday2019 #loveyourself #breakyourownheart #bebrave #girlbebrave #walkforward #beyourownvalentine #iloveme #walkaway #bravewomen #ptsdawareness #abusesurvivor #metoo #strongerthanyouthink #strongerthanyesterday #yougogirl #shewillbeloved #yougotthisgirl #lovemyself #lovemylife #workingonme #womanempowerment #womanwarrior #imokay #justbeyou #prayerwarrior

Valentine 7 No boyfriend? No problem. All by yourself, you are enough. When we learn to be happy and live a full life by ourselves, we find a peace and joy that cannot be taken, because it originates from within. Ignore the commercials of the candy and the roses, or better yet, buy them for yourself. Celebrate who you are, all on your own. God didn't make any mistakes when he created you. All by yourself, you are ENOUGH. #feelthefearanddoitanyway #faceyourfears #faceyourself #dailyinspiration #supersoulsunday #thereal #girlchat #howyouglow #fixmylife #redtabletalk #schoolofgreatness #mindsetofgreatness #timesup #metoomovement #godfidence #christianposts #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #thewordofgod #keepyourheadup #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #ideservebetter

Remember last year’s 14 Days of Valentines ? They were all about learning to love yourself and discovering your self worth. I’ve had a lot of requests to have them this year again, so I’ll be posting a couple a day to get caught up. ❤️❤️❤️ Valentine #1 Having survived a childhood full of sexual abuse and trauma, my self-esteem was nonexistent. I was overwhelmed with pain and sorrow and suffered silently in the shame of having been a victim. That abuse, which was never acknowledged or allowed to heal, controlled every bit of my existence until my self-destructive behaviors nearly took my life. One of the many things I learned as I began my healing journey was that I needed to stop telling myself that I wasn’t worthy of love. I wasn’t damaged goods. I was a victim and I needed to heal and build my self-worth slowly on a foundation of love, understanding, and compassion. It’s hard to silence the negative messages that have played in your mind for years. Healing allows you to replace the hurtful, erroneous messages with new, positive affirmations. We are all worthy of love, simply because we are children of God and our hearts are beating. #inmyfeelings #bossbabes #womensupportingwomen #getitgirl #knowyourworth #lovethyself #slayallday #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #wlscommunity #ideservebetter #trustgod #girlchat #wlscommunity #fixmylife #schoolofgreatness #mindsetofgreatness #extremeweightloss #godfidence #beyourownvalentine #thistooshallpass #justbeyou #prayerwarrior #ptsd #encourageothers #stayfaithful #benddontbreak #keepittogether

More Issues Than Vogue. Yep, that’s me. Perfectly imperfect in every possible way. I used to hide my scars, I was ashamed and didn’t want the world to see them. Today I realize that those scars are proof I was wounded and survived. Learning to embrace both my scars and my flaws has helped me to realize that those very same imperfections are what makes me, ME. I believe that true beauty is something that cannot be seen. True beauty is something that must be experienced, it must be felt. I don’t care about being pretty. I want to be beautiful.... a beauty so profound, a blind man can describe it. #yougogirl #womanempowerment #youhavesuchaprettyface #gotfaith #metoo #courageouswomen #becourageous #trustgod #workingonme #thisisme #iamenough #selflove #womanwarrior #imokay #ptsdawareness #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #abusesurvivor #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #ideservebetter #beyourownvalentine #womensupportingwomen #getitgirl #knowyourworth #lovethyself

For those of you who have read my book, you know quite well who the Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town is and why she has been exiled to her royal chambers. She anxiously waits, though, for any reason that would cause me to summon her to the surface to deal with someone who is deserving of her ruthless and unforgettable attacks. Today, the Queen is imploring me to let her loose. You see someone is bullying and shamelessly attacking my very favorite poet and friend, @alfa.poet. I cannot stand by in silence. My beautiful friend—I love you and support you. Please make a post on your page of yourself, with the phrase “I am not ALFA.” Then make sure to use the #iamnotalfa and #teamalfa . #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #antibullying #antibully #jealousyisanillness #hatersgonnahate #shesbeautiful #longlivealfa #istandbyyou #igotyourback #staystrong #shewillrise #shewillsurvive

I used to always do this. I’d get really down on myself because I didn’t feel as though I looked as good as someone else. I’d constantly compare myself to others and in my mind, I would always fall short. I would sit and cry looking at someone’s “after” pic when I was just getting started. That erroneous assessment only provided further evidence in my mind that I wasn’t enough and never would be. Losing 243 pounds didn’t magically fix that comparison mindset that was so ingrained in my persona. Only becoming healthy in all aspects-physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, corrected my flawed perception of myself. Healing each one of those components, allowed me to stop living my life in comparison mode. Today, I know all too well, each of my imperfections, and I eagerly embrace them. I’m perfectly imperfect and I am beyond okay with that. #faithandfitness #bossbabe #eatfatlosefat #fatnomore #beforeandduring #changingmylife #strongisthenewbeautiful #backontrack #losinginches #whatiwant #baggypants #watchmework #noquit #trustgod #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #justbeyou #imokay #perfectlyimperfect #metoomovement #recoveryispossible #slaytheshame #mychoice #weightlossmotivation #losingweightfeelinggreat #losingweight #losinginches #obesetobeast #flabtofab #dailyinspiration

Kindness matters. Kindness is always my first choice. My being a gentle woman doesn’t mean I am powerless or weak. It means I choose to embrace the world with a a warm, compassionate, loving nature. My kindness does not mean I am a doormat or I will allow myself to be disrespected or mistreated. Just because I show no reaction, doesn’t mean I am unaware of what is happening. My inner beast is sleeping, not dead. #inmyfeelings #bossbabes #womensupportingwomen #getitgirl #knowyourworth #lovethyself #slayallday #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #wlscommunity #ideservebetter #trustgod #girlchat #wlscommunity #fixmylife #schoolofgreatness #mindsetofgreatness #extremeweightloss #godfidence #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #justbeyou #prayerwarrior #ptsd #encourageothers #stayfaithful #benddontbreak #keepittogether

I weighed 391 pounds. I must have tried 500 different diets and workout plans. I hired personal trainers, I got hypnotized.... you name it, I tried it. I had failed so many times that even I wondered would weight loss surgery work for me. After I lost 243 pounds, so many people around me snickered and whispered, “she will gain it ALL back.” That was in 2002 and 17 years later, I’ve maintained that 243 lb loss. Never make the mistake of thinking because you haven’t succeeded yet, that you never will. Keep pushing, keep having faith, and stick with people who support you and believe in you. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve tried, just like me, the next time, might be the perfect time. Stay strong. If i can make it, ANYONE can make it. You got this ! 💪💪💪 #stayfaithful #benddontbreak #keepittogether #godfidence #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #prayerwarrior #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #sidebyside #beforeandafterweightloss #dailyinspiration #ideservebetter #trustgod #girlchat #fixmylife #schoolofgreatness #mindsetofgreatness #inmyfeelings #bossbabes #womensupportingwomen #getitgirl #knowyourworth #lovethyself #slayallday #obesetobeast #youcandoit

God doesn’t miss a single thing. Not only does he see what people do to us, He knows their true motives. He will take the mess and turn it into a message. He will move that mountain and replace it with a blessing. Stay strong, have faith, and let the most powerful force in the universe fight your battles. He does, after all, remain UNDEFEATED. #trustgod #proverbs31woman #praisegod #stayfaithful #benddontbreak #keepittogether #godfidence #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #prayerwarrior #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #ideservebetter #godfidence #christianposts #thewordofgod #godfidence #christianposts #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #bornagain #highlyfavored #godknows #prayerwarrior #ptsd #encourageothers #stayfaithful

I learned the hard way that I couldn’t love a man into being a good man. No matter how much I poured myself into him, how much I sacrificed, how much I gave, I couldn’t make him be anything or act any certain way. I couldn’t make him treat me with respect or love me how I wanted to be loved. I cried a lot of tears and embarrassed myself many times before I realized that what I COULD do was respect myself enough to walk away. Once I refused to accept anything but the best for myself, it was uncanny how the tables began to turn. As my Nonnie always said, “ain’t no fun when the rabbit’s got the gun.” #feelthefearanddoitanyway #faceyourfears #faceyourself #dailyinspiration #thereal #girlchat #howyouglow #fixmylife #redtabletalk #schoolofgreatness #mindsetofgreatness #timesup #metoomovement #godfidence #putgodfirst #thistooshallpass #keepyourheadup #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #donttellmetosmile #itsannoying #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #ideservebetter #dontsettle #trustgod #getittogether #gotgame #ichooseme #aintnofunwhentherabbitgotthegun

This is a whole word all by itself. Repost from @gunterkelley using @RepostRegramApp - Many times we stay in relationships, jobs, and friendships long after their expiration date. We stay in the name of love, or perhaps the lack of self-love. We stay in the name of necessity and sometimes we stay just because leaving can be so dang scary. Even if the situation or person doesn’t fit us anymore, venturing out into the unknown can be terrifying. I stayed involved with a man for 4 years and I don’t believe he really even liked me—but I was determined to make him love me. 😳🙄🤪 Yep, I was enjoying my reign as the Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town. What I learned eventually though, was that the only thing worse than staying in a situation that was not fulfilling my soul for 4 years, was staying in that situation for 4 years and one day. Make the move.

We all have those situations where we lose people and it is simply heart breaking and we just can’t arrive at any true understanding of the situation. Hindsight is always helpful in these situations, but sadly when we are in the thick of the storm, we do not have that gift. I have finally been able to find so much peace in not chasing after anyone who leaves anymore. If someone wants to leave my life, there’s the door. I don’t say that in a hurtful or hateful way. I have just allowed myself to accept that God wouldn’t move anyone away from me, if it didn’t need to happen. What I’ve learned is when I fight those changes, it makes it twice as painful and it delays the arrival of the new people who are on the way. ❤️👑 #goodbyes #giftofgoodbye #lettinggo #movingonquotes #alwaysmovingforward #ontobetterthings #deuces #ideservebetter #overyou #notearslefttocry #nogoingback #itsover #breakingup #seeya #myex #youcanhavehim #imgood #imokay #singlegirl #thankyounext #goodmen #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #goodcatch #nottheone #istillhaventfoundwhatimlookingfor

Pic from @stevemaraboli There is so much truth in this statement. I used to believe that if I loved someone once, I would love them forever—even if the capacity of that love changed. As I continue to walk my healing journey, I realize that MOST of the people I previously loved, wouldn’t even make it into the realm of my current consideration, much less my life. There is a quiet strength in the realization that not everyone I loved, whether friend, family, or lover,deserved that love. Today, I surround myself with people who are good for me, those who water and nurture the goodness and love in me. I steer clear of those who relish in feeding and promoting the pain. #mychoice #intentional #youhavesuchaprettyface #weightlossmotivation #losingweightfeelinggreat #losingweight #losinginches #obesetobeast #flabtofab #vsgcommunity #fattofitjourney #extremeweightloss #beforeandafterweightloss #wlstransformation #wlstories #wls #biggestloser #yougogirl #yougotthis #onmyway #trustgod #weightlossresults #iamenough #weightlossdiary #abusesurvivor #metoo #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #liveyourpurpose #homecomingqueenofcrazytown

When I walk into my bathroom at night, the outside lights shine through the window and it almost appears as though they light up my PRAY BIG sign. It speaks to me every time. It’s so indicative of God’s love.....in the middle of the darkness, light shines through reminding us to put all of our concerns, worries, hopes, and dreams in His hands. PRAY BIG—an awesome God is listening. ❤️🙏 #trustgod #praybig #trustgodsplan #trustgodbro #sprinkleofjesus #prayerwarrior #prayerworks #prayerchangesthings #prayerispowerful #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #jesustakethewheel #godlywoman #godisinher #prayerlife #surrendertogod #lovegod #shewillrise #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #abusesurvivor #metoo #metoomovement #courageouswomen

There is no way possible to go back and change anything that has happened before this moment. We can’t magically fix our mistakes, correct our bad choices, or make all of the broken pieces of our past look pretty. What we can do though, is live in our truth, continue to heal, and make our future as beautifully whole as possible. Healing is incredibly difficult and one of the most challenging pieces of healing is living in today. Walk FORWARD, keep your eyes on your future, and leave the incredibly unhealthy things and hurtful people in your past behind you. Grab your tiara, bid 2018 farewell, and make your proclamation: THE QUEEN HAS LEFT THE BUILDING. 👑 #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #trustgod #2019goals #bye2018 #newyearsgoals #walkingaway #healingfromabuse #abusesurvivor #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #choose #choosejoy #getbetter #findyourself #findyourpeace #wlscommunity #extremeweightloss #iwillsurvive #itgetsbetter #thefutureisbright #2019hereicome #walkingaway #keepgettingbetter #focusonyourself #gettingitright #youcanhealyourlife #giveittogod #movingon #ownit

When we struggle with our self-worth, we sometimes have a difficult time moving forward. We worry that we won’t be able to find a new relationship or that no one else will ever find us desirable. When we feel so broken-hearted, it’s easier to try to dig up old relationships and attempt to bring life back to something that was already pronounced dead. It never works. It is scary to move ahead and into the unknown, but that is where new love is waiting. Don’t let your fear cause you to pack up your shovel and head to the cemetery of your heart. When relationships and situations are dead, let them Rest In Peace. #trustgod #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #brokenheart #broken 💔 #breakupquotes #breakups #movingonquotes #movingon #letgoandletgod #iwillsurvive #dontlookback #itsover #butilovehim #imdone #overyou #overthis #getoverhim #surviving #ihateyouiloveyou #myex #iwantyouback #singlegirl #singleandhappy #singlelifeproblems #singlemen #dontgoback #selflovequotes #abusesurvivor #ptsdawareness

It’s not easy to heal. Every single day there are choices to make that allow you to grow and become healthier. As survivors of childhood abuse and trauma, many times we develop unhealthy behaviors as survival tactics. A very crucial step in recovery is unlearning those and replacing them with healthy options. This can be incredibly difficult because it requires a vulnerability that opens us up to the very pain we’ve been trying so hard to avoid and protect ourselves from. Quite simply, that is terrifying at times. As hard as it is to do, though, that vulnerability is what opens the doors to healthy communication, genuine love and happiness. Do the work. You’re worth it. #trustgodsplan #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #healingtakestime #beingvulnerable #vulnerability #vulnerabilityisstrength #trustingod #trustissues #healthylove #communicationiskey #surviving #onmywayup #facingmyfears #openingup #renewal #istandbyyou #youareenough #youarenotalone #findingmyself #iwillsurvive #scarsarebeautiful #imperfectlyperfect #perfectlyimperfect #authorlife #selfpublished #loveyourimperfections

Be very careful before you judge someone. You don’t know what their eyes have seen, the tears they’ve cried or the painful, dark path God has asked them to walk. Surviving abuse or trauma is hard. Healing from it is harder. Living in a world of people who just don’t get it, is the hardest. Not everyone has earned the right to hear your story. Surround yourself with people who support and understand you, those who love you as you are, the ones who help you fight through the darkness. Be with the precious people who know you’re worth it. The storm will pass. Make sure you’re standing with the right people when it does and enjoy the rainbow with the ones who are worthy. #trustgodsplan #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #abusesurvivor #childabuse #childabuseawareness #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #traumarecovery #trauma #sharemyjourney #healingtogether #itrustyou #mystoryoflight #gettingstronger #gettingstrongereveryday #authors #recoveryisworthit #igetbywithalittlehelpfrommyfriends #chooseyourcirclewisely #dontgiveuponme #iwillsurvive #wlscommunity #thetruthisoutthere #metoomovement #metoo #imstillhere #standingstrong #warriormindset #mypower

I love this song by Jordan Smith, “Stand in the light. “ Truly, the most difficult and terrifying thing I have ever done was to say, “this is me, this is my truth.” Once I uttered those words to the world, years of shame and suffering lifted from my soul. #thisiswhoiam #thisisme #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #extremeweightloss #abusesurvivor #metoo #metoomovement #recoveryispossible #slaytheshame #victims #shewillrise #trustgod #faithingod #strongerthanyesterday #justbreathe #gettingstronger #extremeweightloss #plasticsurgeon #poemsofinstagram #authorsofig #selfpublished #tryingsohard #lifehurts #sprinkleofjesus #justkeepgoing #itgetsbetter

Indeed you do. Sometimes it’s very hard to realize that WE are the very thing that is holding us back. Fear is a powerful opponent and it will cripple all of our efforts if we allow it to. Be strong, be fearless. Be your very best you. #happygirlsaretheprettiest #happiness 😊 #findyourhappy #findyourjoy #besilly #letshavefun #lightenup #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #laughteristhebestmedicine #laughterisgoodforthesoul #crazytown #justbeyou #imokay #perfectlyimperfect #queen 👑 #reign #hermajesty #royalty #wls #extremeweightloss #vsgjourney #authors #beforeandafterweightloss #bestronger #ptsdawareness #ptsd #ptsdrecovery

To my fellow survivors: As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I know all too well how it feels to be completely alone and have no one beside you to protect you. That feeling is one of the most painful things I’ve ever dealt with in my life. Healing from that trauma can be incredibly painful and gut-wrenching at times. Choosing to navigate that path, though, was the only way to discover my self-worth and finally arrive at a place of peace and joy. I know that I will continue to heal for the rest of my life. Whether you are currently healing or still simply finding a way to survive this difficult terrain called life, know that my prayers are with you. I am sorry for what you endured, you deserved better. You deserved to be protected and safe. You deserved to be heard and believed. Hear me when I say this, you are no longer alone. Know that there is someone from a distance who believes in you, someone who prays for you, someone who sees how hard you’re trying. On this and every day moving forward know, I STAND BY YOU. If you stand strong for victims, let’s start this new hashtag #istandbyyou. Strong people lift others and there is strength in numbers. We no longer need to feel ashamed, unworthy, or alone. I stand for those who were silenced with pain, intimidation and shame. Do you ? Comment below if you do and share for victims everywhere. ❤️💪💪 #istandbyyou #youhavesuchaprettyface , #survivorofabuse #survivorofsexualabuse #ptsd #ptsdawareness #victimsofsexualabuse #shewillrise #trustgod #youareworthy #slaytheshame #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #selfloveclub #selfworth #childhoodsexualabuse #endvictimblaming #childsexualabuse #childabuseawareness #youarestrong #healingfromabuse #healingfromtrauma #extremeweightloss #foodaddiction #addiction #plasticsurgery #wls #obesity #strongpeopleliftothers #kindnessmatters #mondaymotivation

Be your own beautiful. Yes, I lost 243 lbs and I’ve maintained that loss for 16 years now. I also lost all of my self-destructive behaviors once I began my healing journey and started working through the emotional reasons I used food as comfort in the first place. I was so tired of hearing, “You Have Such a Pretty Face.” What i know now is that I have a pretty soul and I m deserving of respect, love, and joy. The kind of happiness that radiates out of you—the kind people can’t miss—that’s what healing my inner pain brought me. ❤️ #extremeweightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #fattofit #obesetobeast #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #rny #ds #plasticsurgery #plasticsurgeon #curvy #bodypositive #fitgirls #transformationfitnation #loveyourself #youhavesuchaprettyface #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #wlsbeforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #200poundsdown #strongnotskinny #beforeandafter #bodytransformation

It’s called self-respect. It’s one of the most powerful forces in the world. I used to apologize for everyone else’s bad behavior because I just wanted to be loved. Throughout my healing journey I have learned there are times you say “I’m sorry” and there are times you don’t. Having the discernment to distinguish between the two is crucial to peace and happiness. ❤️❤️❤️ #youhavesuchaprettyface #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #vsgbabe #vsgbeforeandafter #vsg #rny #obesetobeast #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandafter #crazy #homecomingqueenofcrazytown #plasticsurgeon #plasticsurgery #fattofit #selflove #selfworth #bookclub #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #prettygirls #sorrynotsorry

#transformation Tuesday I lost 243 lbs, had the skin removed, but it wasn’t until I healed my inner pain that I was able to find my peace. I’m currently in the process of finishing my second memoir, The Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town.” Life can be all you want it to be if you refuse to accept anything less and put your actions behind that desire. #fattofit #obesetobeast #winning #healthylifestyle #weightloss #beforeandafter #extremeweightloss #losing100pounds #bariatricsurgery #vsg #rny #bariatricbabes #obesity #wls #wlscommunity #vsgbabe #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #gastricsleeve #plasticsurgeon #plasticsurgery #selfpublished #bookshelf #bookworm #youhavesuchaprettyface #prettygirls #crazytown #homecomingqueen #homecomingqueenofcrazytown
