Infused strawberry aqua
I took that first picture about a month and a half ago, when I was 202 pounds. I felt like I didn’t make much progress since I took it, so I took another photo this morning, weighing in at 185 pounds to compare and I couldn’t believe it.
Sometimes you can’t see a change. Don’t get discouraged, because if you’re putting in the work, there most likely is one.
Eat healthy, exercise and be happy.
That progress is amazing
my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate

I trained today at the gym where I picked up a weight last August for the first time in my life. The minute I walked into that locker room I remembered taking selfies there before, and knew I needed to take a new one for giggles, hahahaha. What a difference a year can make.❤
how awesome is that. one year’s worth of progress and i’m sure countless other changes other than your physical appearance.
congrats girl!! you work hard every day and are always a source of inspiration for me :)
Thank you bb :) honestly even though my upper body looks different that’s not what this photo is about to me. It just took me back to that time, and realizing how different I am now in my confidence in myself. I just stand straighter, hold my head higher. I spent my entire life stubbornly insisting that I could NEVER be athletic in my life, it just wasn’t “me”. And just by deciding one day that I wanted to get strong, I ended up completely proving myself wrong hahahaha. It’s just fun to look back.❤️❤️
and i think you can tell that your confidence has improved so much just by looking at this! you’re so sure of yourself and give off this vibe of self-love and strength that we should all strive for, especially as girls living in society today. idk i just think you’re an awesome role model haha ily <3
I love and seriously respect that Idina realizes that she’s tweeting to young, impressionable girls that really will believe her when she tells them they are beautiful!
