HOME PHOTO SESSION!!! To accept ourselves as we are means to value our imperfections as much as our perfections.
I don't want everyone to like me; I should think less of myself if some people did.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.

When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people.

You become less needy and find an inner stability and strength even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.

The increasing self-esteem and self-love also makes you feel more deserving of good things in life and so you’ll self-sabotage less and go after what you deep down want with more motivation and focus than ever before.
LOVE EVERY SINGLE INCH OF YOURSELF
KNOW THAT BEFORE LOVING SOMEONE ELSE YOU GOT TO LOVE “YOU”
And the things that make u different and unique !!! #bodypositivity #bodypositive #selflove #plussize #effyourbeautystandards #loveyourself #fitness #plussizefashion #motivation #selfcare #love #feminism #bopo #bodylove #plussizemodel #curvy #weightloss #fitnessmotivation #mentalhealth #honormycurves #confidence #bodybuilding #loveyourbody #healthylifestyle #health #celebratemysize #fashion #bbw #bodyacceptance #bhfyp

🌱
I'm beginning to feel and see the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel," that there may be life after this depressive episode. For so long I've been in the dark, now I'm clinging to hope that there is more. I'm feeling transformative, like I could reinvent myself...become someone more than what the depression dictates. I'm recommitting myself to my recovery and the restoration of my mind, body, and soul. I may fall but I will get up as many times as it takes. I refuse to quit. I WILL get better.

Another caption that has nothing to do with the picture haha
Today I am reminding myself that it’s okay to feel things I should continue to put myself out there because showing emotions isn’t a character fall, being nice and showing genuine love isn’t something that I need to fix. There’s no use in pessimism as it changes nothing and everything is just a lesson I am grateful to receive. Realizing things you weren’t planning on happening hits deeper in a different way when it felt like the real deal. But life is full of changes ..Cry a little, Thug that shit out and go back to work ♥️ .

SoulCycle is my Runner’s High!
-
HAPPY SATURDAY!
What a wild week!
Finally feel like my cold is subsiding!
WOOOOOHOOOO!
Got to see this lovely lady @caro.warrior, not once, but TWICE this week!
First @Soulcycle on Tuesday thanks to @givingli 💕 and TODAY!
There’s nothing like spending time with someone who’s known you for YEARS!
Don’t know what life would be like without you!
And beyond grateful I got to my first #SoulCycle class in at least 3 months with you!
I came to the realisation during my drive home from SoulCycle Tuesday night that SoulCycle is my runner’s high.
No matter the class, I always end up dying at some point. And what I mean by that is, I get too competitive, I push as hard as I can & my heart rate inevitably starts to teeter the 200s, at which point my chest goes YOOOOO slow down and I have to come back to reality.
It’s in coming back down to reality that it gets hard. Because the escalating is fun, it’s balance that is the challenging part.
Which is what makes cycling such a unique experience.
Because no matter what, I always reach this point, because when I’m cycling the world disappears.
I begin to fight everything in my head.
I clear up the confusion.
I get lost in the moment.
I forget the TO DO’s.
All the matters is my breath & the beat.
So needless to say... I was reminded on Tuesday of my LOVE for SoulCycle cause I am that GIRL. And I cannot wait to make it a regular thing again for me ❤️

Vanessa’s Corner : Wanted to say a little something on here. I created this page not only so I can motivate myself but also other people. Everyone has things in life that they are dealing with that no one knows about. For years now I have been dealing with a lot. This year has probably been on of the hardest years of my life. Been through some major difficulties in every way possible mentally , physically, and emotionally. It has been rough to say the least. But I do want to let you guys all know that I do believe things can get better. Not saying all my problems are being solved , but I know I have to keep trying to make a better life for myself. And I want to prove to people that it is possible for everyone to do so too. ❤️ .

There is no sincerer love than the love for food🍔🍝🍟💚.
.

Over eating is unhealthy and so is starvation. It is commonly known that we should not over binge but what needs more awareness is STARVATION.
Don't starve yourself or let your body go through shit just to look in a particular way. Don't torture yourself , your body. What you want to achieve can be done by eating healthy as well. Eat healthy, stay healthy. Love your body enough.

Thin privilege is a seat at a concert.
.
I really enjoy live music and shows -- both the energy of it and the ability to support performing arts -- but it's so rare these days that I'm willing to put up with being in physical pain for hours to see a performance. Lindsey Stirling was outright painful. Evanescence was deeply uncomfortable. Mary Lambert's venue sucked because it was standing-only, but that was a different issue. Heather Mae was only moderately uncomfortable because I could turn the freestanding seat and sort of wedge my hips into it (and stand part of the time), and she's absolutely worth it. But.
.
What's it like to just...buy a ticket and go see a concert?
.
(Yes, I'm aware that sometimes accessible seating is available at venues. Part of privilege is not having to spend hours making phone calls and begging just to have a seat at the cultural table.)
.
(This is a series of posts on thin privilege and how it affects all of us in daily life. If you're not familiar with the concept of thin privilege, please google and do some reading before engaging here.)

What's been on my mind lately is just appreciating the simple things in life. Things we take for granted, that others wish they had at their disposal.
What does that look like for you? With Thanksgiving a week away, don't just give thanks once a year. Make it a daily habit! .

Top #effyourbeautystandards posts

I have something to say about weight re-gain after fat/weight loss.

Forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself for whatever the reasons were that caused you to gain weight back.
Maybe it was because you gave up your gym & nutrition cycle out of exhaustion.
Maybe it was because you are fighting an eating disorder.
Maybe it was because you don’t care about being smaller anymore.
Maybe it was because you were in a toxic relationship.
Maybe it was because you got out of a toxic relationship.
Maybe it was because your body needed to gain weight back for other health reasons.
Maybe it was because it was summer or you were on vacation.
Maybe it was because you got tired of the same routine you’ve been at for years.
Maybe it was because you started hating the gym.
Maybe it was because you fell in love with yourself the way you are.

WHAT EVER the reason is/was.

Forgive yourself.

You’re not going to get anywhere in life if you’re trying to change your life (or body) out of a place of hatred and guilt.

Now, what you choose to do moving forward, whether that’s getting “back on track”, or staying the way you are, do it with your whole heart and an open mind.

Because all you have is right now.
Not what you used to be or used to look like.
Not what you could be or could look like.

Just you, right now.
💛🌻✨

Maybe it was because you got tired of the same routine you’ve been at for years.
Maybe it was because you started hating the gym.
Maybe it was because you fell in love with yourself the way you are.

WHAT EVER the reason is/was.

Forgive yourself.

You’re not going to get anywhere in life if you’re trying to change your life (or body) out of a place of hatred and guilt.

Now, what you choose to do moving forward, whether that’s getting “back on track”, or staying the way you are, do it with your whole heart and an open mind.

Because all you have is right now.
Not what you used to be or used to look like.
Not what you could be or could look like.

Just you, right now.

Being put in a box continued...
It reminds me of Barbie in her box. There’s holiday Barbie and teacher Barbie and gym Barbie. I shouldn’t have to be business analyst Julie exclusively and keep model Julie a secret because God forbid I be sexy AND smart! But that’s the reality. It’s not considered “professional” to be more than your job because the first thing someone wants to know is what you are, well my job title is not who I am!

@fashionnovacurve AD| I’m doing this new thing where I only take 5 pics in an outfit & force myself to pick 1 of the 5...they may not be perfect, but they’re REAL. Real-ness outweighs perfection!! Always has & always will. This is something I’m doing to help push myself to love who I am even more🥀 #shhhelbss #FashionNovaCURVE #mysterevisionllc
