Fast food has always been a major issue for me. It's so much easier to stop at a drive thru than to have to prep everything at home. And don't get me wrong...I certainly spend time prepping, but on the days where I've run out of prepped meals and don't have the energy as a solo parent to cook something...those are the toughest days for me.
...
I popped into the grocery store earlier last week to pick up a couple things and I realized I was hungry. I hadn't made it home from the gym yet to make my protein shake, so I grabbed a 6oz pack of blackberries and ate those on my drive home.
...
See, fast food doesn't have to be from a drive thru. The perimeter of a grocery store has a tonne of quick options to grab and snack on that are more satiating than most drive thru options.
...
Can I fit a typical drive thru visit into my macros? Sure, I absolutely can...and I do still sometimes manage that. But sometimes your body needs micros and this is one quick (and often times cheaper) option I wanted to share 😊

Just a little something I wrote sometime ago. Loving myself is an ongoing process. I honestly still try, and I hope that I can become better at it. Writing down this way helps me with reaffirmation and keeps me going especially through rough times.

Picture on left Aug12,2019
Picture on right Feb16,2020
I have delt with body dysmorphia for a while now I still deal with it but not as bad as I used to. Picture on the left 2019 was not good to me, until the end. I was unhappy. I didn’t know who I was anymore. I looked in the mirror and saw a stranger. But now things are better I’m in a better head space I know who I am and what I stand for and for once I can say I’m truly happy. Things are getting better and I’m living MY LIFE for me. Can’t wait to see what’s in the future for me. . If you deal with depression or anything at all please surround yourself with people who are truly there for you and don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s OKAY TO BOT BE OKAY! just know you are valid and there is help when you feel like there’s not. .

I’ve been struggling a lot lately with being at home and in that environment. I have always struggled with how I looked or thought I looked with my weight wise. But within the past year or so my dad has been particularly upsetting. Constantly making comments on how I look and when I eat anything. It’s gotten to the point where it has really made me spiral more with my binge eating, restricting and not eating when he’s home/around / hiding out in my room when I eat because I don’t want him to make any comments towards me. It’s been really tolling on mental health and self esteem. Things have just been really hard and I wanted somewhere to express myself. How do you all deal with discouraging comments or people in your life?? Thank you for listening.

About two weeks ago, I posted this picture in my story about going back to the gym (after about five months off) 🏋️‍♂️ I was excited to be in a new place and getting into a new routine of self-care and self-improvement 💪
.
After I posted, I received some comments on the apparent weight loss I had experienced. 💬 These comments (some of which I have compiled in the second picture) may not have had any intended malice, but what people didn’t know, is that this weight loss had been something I was particularly self-conscious about, and because of that I had refrained from posting recent pictures on Instagram at all. ✂️ It was ironic in a way, I had created a profile for myself to be authentic, only to end up censoring a journey that was not progressing the way I felt should. 😕
.
I guess the point of this post is to remind you that you never really know what someone is going through from behind a screen. Online, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a desire to show our only our best and most empowered selves even when our lives feel like they’re falling apart. 🥀
.
The reality is now, though I may be thinner than I was, my personal relationship to my body is a lot healthier than it was at my biggest, and my drive towards self-improvement comes from a real place of self-love rather than the sheer desperation I experienced at times due to #bodydysmorphia. 🌪 I’ve finally come to accept that I may never be the muscle beast I’ve dreamt of being, and that that’s okay. And while some days I might still struggle to love myself, struggle to maintain progress I’ve made either physically or mentally, thats ok too. ❤️ As they say, Rome was not built in a day! 🏛 #selflovejourney #motivationmonday

**Part 4 of 4** I have finally started to let my inner circle in on my struggles. I'm sharing my story, my fears and my insecurities. I'm making strides in not letting the scale define me. It's been hidden away now so that its daily value does not dictate a good or bad day before it even starts. I'm working towards accepting that the people who love me really love the inner me; the outer me is meaningless. Those that do judge my outer self aren't worth my time or energy. 
I pray that anyone who suffers from anything similar learns to lean on their circle and let them in. I pray they see their beautiful inner self and thank God for the gifts they've been given. I pray that one day a world can exist without "thin-privilege" or "fat-shaming." #bodyimage #eatingstruggles #relationshipwithfood #weightlossjourney #anxiety #selflove #recoverywarrior #bodydysmorphia #bodydysmorphicdisorder #fatshaming #thinprivilege

*Part 3 of 4** A healthier lifestyle and different, but maybe more socially acceptable, body hasn't made me more popular or feel better about myself. Instead it's given me more anxiety and pressure to maintain a different facade and image. It makes me fearful of a number on a scale and not fitting in a certain size of clothes.  I've let that fear become all-encompassing in food choices and caloric intake. I've hidden away my love of food and truly enjoying the things I eat. 
I'm ashamed of these fears and worries. Life is so much more than body weight. People are struggling and suffering through real problems.  My fears seem petty and miniscule in comparison so I prefer to keep them bottled up deep inside and suffer in silence.

**Part 2 of 4** I feel like I am defined by my weight, my body and what people see on the outside. Those who never knew the "before me" don't know the struggles I've had over the past 39 years. Some even make comments about how small I am and how it must be nice to be thin. "Thin-privilege" is real and I will admit I've experienced it. I can find clothing pretty easily and no one looks twice at me on a plane. Sadly, "fat-shaming" is real too and something I've also endured. It was hard to find pants that were wide enough in the waist but with a length made for someone other than a WNBA player. I saw disdain in people's eyes when I would "super-size" a meal and then eat it all. Disgust in the grocery store when I'd pick up frozen pizza, chicken nuggets and french fries. In reality, what does it matter what other people do or eat if it doesn't impact your quality of life? 
My biggest fear in life isn't death, spiders or public speaking - it's failure. I fear I will become my old body self and just another statistic about those who lose weight just to gain back the lost weight and more. I fear those who knew me before will judge me. I fear that the before body will change people's "inner self" opinions of me. I fear I will be bullied again and shamed for failing.

Allow things to unfold naturally. Accept that there are things you can't manipulate. There are times where we have to learn to let go of control, which is extremely hard but favorable in the long run, no matter the chaos or how frightening the unknown may be. Loosening up that tight grip can in fact facilitate matters, mitigate anxiety and help you breathe easy. This doesn't imply sitting around and waiting for things to happen or resolve, it means resting assured knowing that we've already poured out our heart and put in the effort, aware of the fact that, if we continue spreading ourselves thin and racking our brain, we will only condemn ourselves to depletion; of our energy, of our body, of our sanity.

Plant the seed and make sure to nourish it, but don't force its growth, because it will sprout when it's ready regardless of how stubbornly you try to rush it.

I believe in divine timing, that things take place at a specific time for a specific reason, that each pace is different because things take work and require to build a foundation before moving toward the next step, the next cycle. Impulsiveness alters this process and in fact slows it down, however, the silver lining is that you cultivate patience, and that is indeed a virtue. .

**Part 1 of 4** I'm human and I'm real. I have faults and I fail. I have strengths and I succeed. I laugh and I cry. I am anxious and carefree. Love me or hate me, I am me. 
People who see my outer self might describe me as small, short, thin, tiny or Asian. People who know my inner self might use the words loyal, faith-filled, loving, sincere or kind. See the issue with the differences in adjectives? 
I don't want to be defined by how I look. An arbitrary number on a scale might peg me as "average" on a meaningless chart. Prior to the past 5 or so years, I was overweight and not in a cute and chubby way. I was defined by how I looked then. I was fat-shamed for my body size. Sadly, throughout my life, I've been bullied for my race and nationality, my need for glasses, not being able to afford brand name clothes, drive an expensive car or take lavish vacations. I managed the best I could but I will carry those scars forever. 
I used to think that losing weight would instantly change my life and I dreamt of finding the magic diet to make it happen overnight. Maybe I was too lazy at the time but I never tried any of the fad diets and my weight never yo-yoed. I'm not sure what changed but one day I decided I wanted to be healthier. I didn't set out to diet or lose weight but instead, I started drinking more water, eating more fruits and vegetables, getting more steps and finding ways to manage stress. My clothes started fitting differently and after about a year, somehow my body was about 70 lbs less.

It's been about 5 years since my body changed and I'm still not used to it. I see the old me in the mirror every day and I'm not sure I'll ever see the me that others see. The one thing that I do see though, is the number on the scale. I'm a numbers person and it's how my brain measures success or failure. It's ironic because while the changes were happening, I didn't focus at all on the numbers. But now that's all that I can think about.

This past week I’ve really felt big, not just belly big but in my face and legs too which is messing with me! I’ve gained 11.6kg so far at 32 weeks. This calculator has helped A LOT with my head space. It calculates your pre pregnancy weight and height and gives you 3 estimates. Left is the lower, right is medium and middle is higher weight ranges. I’ve basically been tracking in the middle column the entire pregnancy! Ive been weighing myself weekly still whilst pregnant, as I think it’s dangerous to just plod along in life having no idea what the scales are doing.
Starting weight 62kg
32 weeks pregnant 73.6kg

Photo is from few weeks ago at my baby shower- incase you’ve all missed my face 😅😇 #pregnancyafterwls #pregnancyweightgain #32weekspregnant #thirdtrimester #bodyimageissues #bodydysmorphia

To be truly happy you must learn to be your true self.
Don’t worry the world will adjust.

Let’s talk about perception for a moment. On the left I was a size 2 and 112 pounds. I was eating 600 calories a day, and I had very little energy. I had no muscle or any drive to even get fit. I didn’t feel small. I still felt fat. I felt this way because I have body dysmorphia. 
Now let’s look at the photo on the right. I’m a size 4, and I weigh somewhere around 138 pounds. I eat 1800-2000 calories a day. I feel strong. I have energy. I love and appreciate all kinds of food. But I still have body dysmorphia. 
Realistically I still have days where I feel “big” but the difference is how I respond to that internal battle. I no longer punish myself for eating too much. I don’t restrict myself from certain foods. And I have to work hard to fight my brain on the mean comments that still pop up from time to time.
It is really important to remember that if you know someone who struggles with an eating disorder, that they cannot just be cured of it. Battling body dysmorphia is something I intend to fight for the rest of my life. The first step to battling an eating disorder is learning to love yourself. Learning the importance of eating food and nourishing your body. Respecting your vessel! 
I hope to see a day when I no longer have to push away the negative talk because truthfully it is much harder to unlearn a habit. Especially one that has been embedded into me for so long. But I know that it will happen eventually because I want it. Give yourself a hug today and go eat some food. .

Let’s talk about perception for a moment. On the left I was a size 2 and 112 pounds. I was eating 600 calories a day, and I had very little energy. I had no muscle or any drive to even get fit. I didn’t feel small. I still felt fat. I felt this way because I have body dysmorphia. Now let’s look at the photo on the right. I’m a size 4, and I weigh somewhere around 138 pounds.

Time to lose da fluff ⛄️ .
I’ll be doing this by keeping my workouts intense aka supersets with shorter rest periods while also focusing on mind-muscle connection.

I’ll be throwing in cardio 2-3x a week to start with.

I have a very sedentary job and that will change soon. My workouts matter but not enough for me to lose fat, so more walking and being active in everyday life is going to have to start happening.

Would you like me to document this more? The emotional struggles of losing weight? How to overcome cravings? Etc.? Lemme know!

And if you need help becoming more active/adopting a more healthy lifestyle DM me! I’m giving free advice...for now 🤪 (also passed my first practice test today for health coaching! Super excited!)

The thing that is holding you back from taking the next step is you. You are 100% responsible for everything that happens to you in your life. Sure bad things might have happened, but it’s your attitude that you can control. You can continue to play the victim and blame the world for everything bad that has happened to you, or you can choose to Riseabove and take full ownership of your life. Now is the time to be honest with yourself. You must look yourself in the mirror and ask if you are doing everything you can to overcome the hardships you are facing. You owe it to yourself to live life to your fullest! 📸: @samanthapav
