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
