Who’s ready for a nice flow tomorrow?

I consider myself vegan. However. My own kind of vegan. I eat eggs if they come from a friend or acquaintance’s backyard who has free roaming chickens that lay eggs just because it’s part of their nature. 


A fall themed bowl! Mixed organic greens, quinoa, fried egg, roasted pumpkin,shredded carrot and cherry tomatoes! //nourish//

MY LAME WEIGHTLOSS STORY. JOIN ME…
Top photo-155-159 lbs
Bottom photo-145 lbs
I guess you could say it was the “freshman fifteen”. I don’t know how it happened. I had never weighed that much in my life! 155 lbs….some days on the scale, I would be 159. 
I’ve always been athletic. Never weighed more than 145. But the holidays were approaching. I was eating (vegetarian might I add) and staying inside doing homework. I was gaining weight but I would stay calm because I realized that our body image has nothing to do with eternal happiness. 
However, I was trying to do different things to make that extra ten pounds go away. I’d hop on the stationary bike at my house very late at night if I was guilty about something I ate. I would constantly squeeze the extra layer of fat. I would see photos of myself and not UNDERSTAND! (top photo shown above). It was a vicious cycle. Weightloss and food were on my mind 24/7.
Then! My cousin from Spain came to visit me…everything changed. I started focusing way way way less on my image and focused more on just having a nice summer. Her and I were doing activities all day so we just ate when we were hungry. Kind of how you do when you’re young. You just eat however much your body needs just so you can leave and go play. I made the decision to go strict vegan. I hardly was even doing yoga that often. Maybe once a week. 
Boom! One day at my mother’s house she was commenting on how it looked as if I lost weight. I didn’t think so. She told me to step on a scale. I refused for the next 20 minutes but she finally convinced me. I couldn’t believe it. Those pesky ten lbs had shed without me even realizing it. 

This is like any other lame weightloss story. But what I want the reader to get from it is how you need to LET GO in order for things to happen. I was a black and white thinker. “I’m not losing weight right now so I guess I never will.” Once you let go and JUST LOVE YOURSELF, you cannot go wrong. 

During this whole weightloss process, my boyfriend didn’t even notice! At all!!! And look at the photos. It’s a significant difference. He said, “Oh well I guess you feel a little lighter.” 
That’s the funny part. No one is going to love you less for your appearance and if they are then they shouldn’t be in your life. 
I am so sick and tired of social media and TV making girls feel like they need to have hard core abs and take pictures of their tan legs next to a half eaten watermelon…excuse my French: IT’S BULLSHIT. 
Together, let’s decide to end self hate and insecurity now…Self love is a CHOICE! You have absolutely no reason not to love yourself. This life is a short journey. The way you look doesn’t matter. The number on the scale doesn’t matter. 
What matters are the genuine laughs, the snack time with friends, the hugs you give your loved ones, the movement your body experiences, love, nonverbal communication. 
Stop obsessing over squats and oatmeal. If you want to be strong, be strong for you because you like to see your body’s capability. Not for Instagram. If you want to do yoga, do yoga for you. Not for people to see you in yoga pants. 
I could probably go on for a few more pages but I’m thinking I’ve gotten my point across.
Love yourself now. Make the decision now.
