Not gonna lie to y’all but I’ve been receiving more hate than I’ve ever received before; but at the same time, I’m also receiving the most amount of love that I’ve ever received from strangers. It’s an interesting point of life when you’re celebrating who you are and celebrating what you have accomplished but at the same time you have people who are trying to tell you that you shouldn’t be happy with being you, you shouldn’t celebrate yourself and that you should actually hate who you are and be disgusted by yourself. It’s so sad that in this world we feel like we need to put other people down in order to make ourselves feel better. It’s sad that we preach and tell other people that self-hatred is something that they should practice because they don’t necessarily fit the body type you think is ideal.//
If you are feeling down or you are getting hate; I want to encourage you and give you a massive Internet hug (LOL). You are not alone. You are seen, valued and loved.
Let’s Toast to the fact that we are getting closer and closer to Summer2020🥂// .
The winter of life may feel indefinite, but remember that all seasons pass. There are better days ahead, don’t lose hope. #allyourpromisesareyesandamen

Please tell me I’m wrong and one of my favorite plus size retailers didn’t do this... like I need my phone to be a glitch or me seeing something... @torrid how awful! You say you care for those plus size and toot your horn of sized 00-30. Well... what the hell is this? You’re going to half ass a photoshop that shouldn’t be? I’m thinking of being done with you all. If you want to care to your population, have a wide verity of models all shapes and sizes. Be progressive and add transgender women. Do something more than what every other stereotypical retailer has done: market to only those who are sizes 00-12... maybe an 18... I’ve lost all kinds of respect for you now. #anotherpluseizedwomanphotoshopped#torrid#torridfashion#hypocrites#allsizeatter#stopphotoshopping

I still haven’t reached my next weight goal and honestly I’m alright with that. This month has been all about focusing on getting strong(not the number) and I’m pleased to say I’m no longer obsessively weighing myself. I was weighing myself several times(3-7) throughout the day and all I could think of was seeing that arbitrary number because I was relating it with my self worth. .
So instead I’d like to share this non-scale victory with you all. Me going from a @torrid size 5(32)dress to a size 1(16)!! .
What I love most about this comparison pic is that you can see I was just as confident and feeling myself at a size 32 weighing in the 400s as I am on the right in a size 16 dress weighing in the 200s. .
Your self worth should never and will never come from any number on a scale. I’ve always had confidence but struggled with my self-esteem. .
Especially growing up in a household and culture where you weren’t allowed to feel beautiful unless you looked a certain way. So even when I dressed up full of confidence it was always met with “you’re face is so pretty but if you just lost the weight”. .
I’m pretty..period!! No and, if, or butts about it and no one should ever have to feel that way. I agree that I think I look better now aesthetically, but my self worth can’t be based off that either. All this outer beauty fades so better to be focused on that inner beauty because that one stays with you forever! .
I still have the desire to reach that next weight goal and I know exactly what I need to do to get there. That number on the scale is just a number that I will use as data. It will simply tell me if I have to increase my caloric defecit to reach my goals or not. Nothing more or less. I will still celebrate it because that means my body is closer to being able to achieve my fitness goals such as pull-ups. .
Until then I will continue to love myself no matter what the dam number is and on the days I find it difficult to I will just have to work even harder at it. .
I was very much feeling my jeans this morning. They looked good, no wait, they felt right, they...something. So I wanted to take a picture of 'it'. A few people have told me that they don't understand what it's like to be trans or non-binary, but there you have it right there. It's like having a word on the tip of your tongue, an idea you can't quite define. Looking in the mirror and seeing you are not the millionaire you expected to be, not the socialite you wanted to be, you're never having the dinner party you bought that china service for, you've been practicing for something that is never going to happen.
We all, in some way, fail to meet the expectations that we pick up in life, the only difference about being trans is a large segment of the population is screaming that you shouldn't even be thinking about that idea on the tip of your tongue while you try and work out what it actually is.

So much pressure to #bounceback after childbirth. The truth is I dont ever think we BOUNCE BACK. We just adapt and move forward in this new body and this new life that includes an extra little person.
Right now support bras and girdles are my best friend and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Shout out to the brown bread at @cheesecakefactory ❤🙏🏾👶🏾 (This was 3 weeks post partum) 📸: @bodycourage 🤗

Happy Thursday Guys!👋🏼•••
It’s almost friday🤩
We’ve had a relatively lazy day at home. Thursdays are for hanging around on Mia’s off day from school; which means more messes to clean up. Thankfully they are getting less and less because Mia is in a self clean up phase and I’ll take it while I can get it! 🥰 Finally got dressed to go run a few errands and get the last minute items for Mia’s birthday cake& cupcakes. Woohoo! #frozen2
I hope everyones having a great day!!😁
p.s. loving these graphic tees I got last week on my birthday from my @torrid haul! #mamaneedshercoffee#truthontruth#alldayerrday#torrid
