Even though the weight loss itself hasn’t been that drastic, I’ve noticed a pretty significant weight SHIFT. I’m just really excited to start enjoying my body for the first time in over a decade.

Mental Health is such a crazy ass hurdle when it comes to weight loss.
When I first came to Armstrong (now Georgia Southern) I weighed around 240. And I vividly remember being terrified because that meant I was only 20 pounds away from being my (then) highest weight of 263. And in my freshman pirate cars picture I thought I looked so fat. Fast forward almost 50 pounds later and this is my brand new ID. NOW, yesterday when I got it my very first words were “oh wow, my double chin isn’t as bad as I thought it would be” — and I can’t lie, I actually kind of liked the picture!
But in the 24+ hours since, I’ve analyzed this picture over and over. I formed residence in every line and fold that showed signs of my weight. I took stock of the chubby cheeks making my eyes barely notable. I appreciated the perfect circle my face has become. I began getting upset and that same soul crushing feeling of my own body’s weight began to pour over me. And instead of that kicking my ass in gear, I went out and ate unhealthy, non vegan, gluten charged foods. And then felt WORSE.
And now I just feel like a water balloon. I know this isn’t the uplifting olivia from yesterday. But this is real. Nevertheless, the journey continues on. #weightlossjourney

It's flashback time! Bringing it back to summer 2 years ago I believe it was the year I took up running. I was super proud of proving myself wrong and showing myself that I was stronger than I thought. I was proud of the body I had achieved and I was actually confident enough to be in a bikini I usually wear tankinis but I felt real self-confidence and I hadn't even reached my goal yet. I actually loved myself then. But that confidence is gone now, what with the yoyoing of my weight. It shows up from time to time in different areas of my life, but it doesn't shine as bright. So I guess I'm still trying to find that me who loves herself enough to just bust a move in a bikini
Potato cleanse update (Day 5): I'm feeling a little tired but I think it's mostly from work and being on that first day of that time of the month . I have to say that I cheated a bit the other day . I was watching some shows before bed and I had an urge to warm up some croissants. Like an URGE. I was hungry but the chips I had prepared for such an occasion had gone soft and I didn't want to wait for the oven to heat up so... I caved. "Just one..." I said. And one became two. And it almost became the whole box lol but I somehow slapped myself internally back to normal. I'm almost embarrassed to say. Does anyone else have that pull? Maybe it's just me . But I don't wanna seem perfect or make it seem like it's easy peasy and clearly it's not for someone like me who has all these food issues. But this is a journey where I'm discovering what triggers me and to learn how to overcome them. So lesson #1 is overly prepare potatoes and have an excess of ready ones that are easy to grab. Many more lessons to come I'm sure! Photocred : @marinebuton

TBT to hot days by the lake last fall with @rachelle_loves_yoga
So if you happen to follow @rachelle_loves_yoga you know that she has started this "potato cleanse" this week as she got inspired by an episode of the @richroll podcast I sent to her. That podcast came out a while ago and when I had first listened to it, I was really interested by @spudfit 's motivations to do this cleanse. Then recently, Rich Roll reposted the podcast on his fb page and I don't know why, but remembering the episode, I thought "okay let me send this to rachelle" not as a way to say "you should do this!" at all. More cause I wanted to share this man's perspective and see what she thought about it. Turns out, she connected to it way more then I had anticipated! And she started opening up about certain struggles she had and telling me how much this man was expressing what she felt. So she decided to jump on and do what he did (well just not for as long, at least for now) And I said to her that if she would do it I would do it too! first as a support but also because there are some of my own things I want to uncover. What's funny is that I ended up starting a week before her, because she was waiting to receive @spudfit 's book before starting. but the week we were talking about it,I was like why do another week of normal groceries when My fridge is almost empty and I can just buy potatoes and start monday! So I did! Rachelle wanted to have the book and be more prepared which I understand. I was more like "lets go go" I would figure things out from his YT channel. I have to say I was lucky Rachelle received the book on my day 4 and she was able to explain to me how the fact that I felt so shitty on day 2 and 3 was normal Anyways, I'll share more about it on my YT cause there is so much to say! I'm now on day 11 and I feel awesome and full of energy and have already learned a lot about myself and how I relate to food. But like I said Ill talk more about it in a youtube video. Will also do one with Rachelle at the end of her month. In the meantime be prepared for tons of potato food pics 🥔
Is it Fry-Day yet? They say life is about “balance”...in some cases or moments I say “Nope.” For some...staying up after hours and getting up before the is necessary to accomplish what fuels them. Check in with yourself, what are the feelz? Follow the feelz! They constantly whisper to you. If the attitude is still on good vibes lane, than juice it! When the momentum kicks in... ride the wave ALL THE WAY IN baby! “Whatever you can do or dream you can, BEGIN IT, Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. BEGIN IT NOW.” We don’t serve the world distracting ourselves with things and stuff. And we don’t serve by playing it small. So jump in and keep your mind and feelz focused on what the best that can happen is! Whether it’s trying a plantbased diet, career goal, or something personal...just play! Keep it light, keep it fun!! #potatodiet @domaznavour
¿Ya es Fry-Day? Dicen que la vida es encontrar el "equilibrio" ... en algunos casos digo "Nop". Para algunos ... quedarse despiertos después de horas y levantarse antes del es necesario para lograr lo que los alimenta. Sigue los sentimientos ! Ellos te hablan constantemente. Si la actitud todavía está en buena onda, ¡entonces síguelo. ! Cuando el impulso entra ... cabalga la ola ¡ "Lo que sea que puedas hacer o soñar puedes, COMIENZA, la Audacia tiene genio, poder y magia". COMIENZA AHORA. "No servimos al mundo distrallendonos. Y no servimos jugando a lo pequeño. ¡Así que salta y mantén tu mente y tu sentimientos enfocados en lo mejor que puede pasar! Ya sea que probar una dieta basada en plantas, un objetivo profesional o algo personal ... ¡solo juega! ¡Mantén lo ligero, mantenlo divertido! #ladietadepapa
