😇❤ he always knows what to say eh 😍 people don’t understand that if they call you ugly, you could spend the rest of your life believing it and never seeing yourself as anything but ugly- then it leads to insecurity and you never trust any man because why would he stay faithful to someone who is ugly when there are all those pretty girls out there. What about when people call you fat, and you start questioning the clothes in your wardrobe? You look at your body picking out every tiny imperfection - cellulite,stretch marks, the thigh gap you don’t have. You lose your confidence to wear nice clothes and your self esteem is rock bottom. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. STOP IT. Believe me I’ve had people left right and centre fill my head with hurtful things. Yesterday I realised that when you value yourself as beautiful, no one else’s opinion matters.

Limits

image

I’m quite a strong person. If something bad happens, more often than not I’ve just cracked on, moved on and forgotten about it. But, there are some things you can’t give up on for whatever reason - whether it’s where your loyalty lies, it’s family related or its something within yourself that won’t let you give up. If there’s one thing i hate though, it’s this notion people go through of forgiving and forgiving and forgiving the same damn person for the same damn thing. I rarely give people second chances, and if you get anything more than that off me? you must be damn special or be dreaming. We need to know our limits. You need to know when to stand up for yourself and express that you’ve had enough. Too many people are damaged by constant betrayals and disloyalty - damaged almost beyond repair. Insecure. No self respect. No view of what is right or wrong any more. No view of what behaviour is acceptable. No strength to walk away because its easier to be treated like crap than start over. Today, I start over. I have put up with lies. I have put up with name calling. I have put up with digs. I have been put down. I have been made to feel inferior and worthless because I might be two sizes bigger than your beautiful self. I have been told i am spoilt because i have grown up with a family around me. No.. I am not spoilt, i am blessed to have a family. I am not fat - i am overweight yes- but i will not be called fat. I am 16 pounds lighter than i was 4 months ago and i am proud of that. I am not a lesser person than you because i am not as pretty. From now on, if you say anything to me, I will simply sit and smile. why? because i’m done. I will sit and smile because i know you’re wrong. I will sit and smile because from now i will only make effort with those who are a positive influence in my life. I will sit and smile thinking of myself. My beautiful self. 

👌 so true. I can only think of a handful of people who have said something positive about my weight loss. a lot of people I know have never said anything  positive to me about my weight loss, despite the fact I’ve now lost 16lbs. Why?who knows. why wouldn’t you be happy for the girl who is now confident,committed,consistent,happy,stronger? There are people who said I couldn’t do it, that I’m doing it wrong. It’s working isn’t it? so why are you criticizing me? Same goes for university - I’ve had a few people here and there saying my results are due to “luck”. Hm. No. They’re due to 6h of revision every day for 6+ weeks my lovely. It’s a shame people feel the need to bring down others and their success.  You might not be happy for me, but I am. I’m very fucking happy over what I’ve achieved. Now move along 👌 #weightloss #happy #jealousy #success #cleaneating #eatclean #proud #cleanlife #healthyliving #happiness #strength #weightloss #byebyefat #slimming #healthylife #eatwell

Squeeky Clean

This review is on the "Scrub your nose in it" Soap and Glory scrub. It claims that “it helps to exfoliate, clean and purify the skin, lift away pore-clogging dead skin cells, soak up excess oils, and stimulate fresh oxygen to your face”. Well, it’s bang on. Soap and Glory products never ever disappoint me. Three years ago for Christmas I got a massive soap and glory box - and loved every single product! I now rely on Soap and glory for shower creams, body butter, hand cream,foot cream, body scrubs and make-up.

However, I have always been careful with the products i apply to my face as I have had acne since i was around 13. I tried tablets and creams prescribed by the doctor but nothing worked well enough. I’ve also tried pretty much all the products on the shelves in boots, and nothing has impressed me as much as this product! 

Firstly, I wash my face with water alone. Then, I steam it for 10 minutes and pat my face dry. Afterwards, I slightly wet my face and apply a 5p sized squeeze of scrub your nose in it- onto my face - everywhere (not just my t-zone). I spend about a minute applying it and exfoliating in circular motions, and then I leave it on for 2-5 minutes. I then use warm water to remove the scrub and pat my face dry. I do this three times a week. Whilst using this product I’ve gone from 2-3 (new) spots a day to 2-3 spots a week (if that!) Its absolutely fantastic! This product gets a 5/5 from me.

I’VE OFFICIALLY LOST A STONE! I have been waiting so long for this :D I can’t believe I’ve lost a stone and I can just say “a stone” when people ask ” how much weight have you lost”. Now, my next big target is 21lbs 😇🌼🌸 #weightlossjourney #weightloss #slimming #happy #proud #stone #eek #excited #fitlife #byebyefat #cleanlife #cleaneating #target #lifestyle #healthy #healthylife #healthyliving #healthisimportant #nourish #eattonourish #results #progress

Forgiveness

This is something i just don’t get.

I’ve seen everywhere that to find peace, you must forgive people. I am much more at peace knowing that someone who has betrayed me/hurt me/upset me can not do so again, therefore i will not forgive them. My thinking is that if you hurt me, that’s it. I probably won’t trust you again and you deserve no place in my life. Surely, to forgive someone, is only giving them the chance to hurt you again, and it’s only you who is vulnerable?
