At my heaviest that I have ever been. It’s time for a change and time for me to take it into my own hands. No more excuses and lame reasons for not eating healthy and not running. It’s cold outside, so what?!? Doing this for myself and taking care of my body. #weighin#beforephoto#heaviest#over200lbs#loseweight#timeforchange
Its funny when you start a fitness journey you think it will be 100% about body. You think all your friends and family will support you because you are working on yourself. You think it will be hard but not too hard. You think you can do it all by yourself
TRUTH IS. You find out its 70% about your mind and 30% about your body. You find out that your friends and family arnt always your biggest supporters. You find out its alot harder than you thought it would be. And you realize you deffinantly cannot do it alone.
There will be people who don't understand who you are becoming. There will be moments you think you can't do another rep. Times when you think if this was the right choice you made. And at the end of the day you might question if it is all worth it
THE ANSWER IS YES!!! Yes lossing people is worth it because you know why you are doing it. That extra rep waz worth it because you are becoming stronger. This was the right choice you made because you are happier than you were 5 months ago. And look at all the new friends you've made who are going through the same thing!!! 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯
People say life is short. But in reality its the longest thing we will ever do. Don't let someone elses opinion of you stop you in your journey. Don't let your mind get in your way of finishing that last rep. You started this journey for you. Love you enough to finish it. !!! We are one community. Let the good vibes flow!!

This is my picture without hypothyroidism... life was healthier and happier.
At 80kgs and major health issues like rapid weight gain, loss of bone density, blood pressure issues, stress, depression, cholesterol issues, alarming memory issues, vision issues. I miss my earlier health condition. Hypothyroidism is is slow killer if you don't fight it hard with all your strength.
I could never even imagine that some day I will reach such a bad health state.
Now that I am fighting this medical condition I want to share my journey with you guys while along with medicines and so many required health supplements I will now be following a healthier lifestyle coz I have given up on continuing to live like a loser. Need your support😊 Need my friends to cheer for me❤ #fitnessmotivation#hypothyroidism#health#timeforchange#support#GetBackToLife#journeybegins

It is a great feeling to finally have a steadfast timeframe on closing another chapter in my life. After years of dealing with uncertainty, and the ups and downs that came along with all of it, to round the last corner and see light at the end of the tunnel is a fantastic feeling. The struggle to get here felt at times like it was not worth it, but I had friends and family to show me what could be if I made this decision, and that helped tremendously. I know that I will soon be happier and my two amazing kids will be better off as a result of this decision, and although it may be the start of another struggle, I am ready and willing to take that on. I am still a ways off, there is work to be done and definitely some difficulties ahead, but I am happy to see my own progress in moving forward. I found my worth a long time ago, knew what I needed to do, and I made a plan. There is a big change ahead, but it is just the first change. Once this hurdle is cleared I will pick my next challenge and defeat it as well.😊 #toughtruths#bigdecisions#movingforward#knowyourworth#lettinggo#leavethedarkdaysbehind#thelineisbothfinishandstart#domorebetter#futurelooksgreat#timeforchange#igotthis#itsnotoverbutitissoclose

Ihr Lieben! Ich brauche eure Hilfe! Ich folge @slaughterhouse_survivors Das sind 3 junge Lehrerinnen die in China arbeiten und ihr ganzes Geld und alle Energie in die Rettung von Hunden und Katzen investieren um sie vor dem Yulin „Fest“ retten! Nicht nur, dass diese Barbarei abgeschafft gehört, in den letzten Tagen wurden in einigen chinesischen Städten neue Regeln eingeführt. Ich bitte euch, schreibt an den chinesischen Botschafter und protestiert gegen diesen Wahnsinn. Für Österreich ist es LI Xiaosi und die E Mail geht an [email protected] Es macht Sinn das Sozialministerium, zuständig für Tierschutz in Kopie zu setzen [email protected] Der Text: Mit Entsetzen habe ich Nachrichten in China gesehen wo in Hangzhou wahllos Hunde von der Polizei beschlagnahmt und getötet werden. Ertränkt, Erschlagen! In Chengdu dürfen Menschen zwischen 7 und 19 Uhr nicht mit ihren Hunden auf die Straße. Das ist furchtbar und lässt China - ein Land dass als fortschrittlich gelten möchte - in den Augen der westlichen Welt in keinem guten Licht erscheinen! Ich möchte hiermit gegen dieses Vorgehen, und auch gegen Yulin protestieren! Jede E-Mail hilft, je mehr umso besser!!! Danke! #tierschutz#ohmydog#adoptdontshop#stopyulin#jedestimmezählt#protest#gegentierquälerei#helfen#timeforchange#stopanimalcruelty
Heading into a new week motivated and ready to go.....first up though a one hour relaxation massage!
Let the universe guide you and see where you end up..... you might be pleasantly surprised.....what new opportunities have presented themselves to you lately? Has your direction changed unexpectedly? Time to get excited 🎉🎉🎉 #mondaymotivation#timeforchange
At some stage I believe that in years to come we'll look back at how we allowed Direct Provision to continue in the sane way we know think of the Magdalene Laundries and the Mother and Baby Homes.
Important to continue hearing the experiences of those living, surviving, existing in these outdoor prisons.
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
-Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
This book...wow! 🙌🏻 #ASparkOfLight is an absolute must read. 📖 @jodipicoult is my favourite author for many reasons, one being that she writes from the P.O.V. of both sides of a debate & I finish her books with a wider knowledge - like the fact that 1 in 4 women have an abortion - & understanding of controversial, but important, topics. Whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, maybe if we all sparked up more discussions for women's sexual health rights & listened harder to real experiences & life stories, the world may become a better, more respectful & understanding place. As #JodiPicoult so eloquently put it: 'Laws are black and white. The lives of women are a thousand shades of grey.'. ❤️ #timeforchange#bookstagram#incredibleauthor#incrediblewomen#womensrights#thoughtprovoking
How can we live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight. Let’s make more love, less hate. When you receive hate or attack just ask the defender “What hurt you so much that you feel you have to hurt me to heal it?” This question alone can transform our world into the transition of peace that we have sought so long. What we’ve been doing and repeating-religion/division/war- its not working, maybe it’s time to try something new. We’re not getting the results we want with our current beliefs. I believe we will see a change in our life time. I can feel it in the air! 💫
I don’t know about you, but this time change has me feeling some type of way. The sunsets are way too early. But nothing changes, if nothing changes.. 🌤 #timeforchange 🧡 • @lee_lhgfx
The sun sets on another jam packed weekend. Meetings, postering, glue making! Thank you again to our volunteers who put up over 300 posters this weekend. You are all superstars! In our opinion we are the definition of grassroots campaigning, and whilst the road is long, we will triumph and topple Abbott in 2019! Thank you 😍🙌🏼
Most big changes in my life start with a heavy weight on my chest. At first I don’t even notice it’s there. Once I do though, it becomes impossible to ignore until I do something about it. I’ve tried embracing Atlanta since moving here a bit over two years ago, but it just hasn’t been home. I think it’s time to find a new city and make some changes. Maybe back to FL or Nashville. I’ve always liked Scottsdale or maybe even Las Vegas. I just know I need to make a change. #nomad#timeforchange#someguyin??? #mlh#newroads
