2009vs2019. 2009 me had friends. A lot of friends. 2009 me met some of the best people I would ever meet, and then never kept in touch. 2009 me was often embarrassed at being the 'fat friend', ashamed at being larger than the others. How stupid I was. 2009 me was in a toxic relationship. This is the only photo I could find of me from that time. Because I didn't believe I should taking photos of myself when I looked like that. It was also the relationship that was responsible for me losing those friends, in more than one way. 2009 me used to self harm, something I'd done since school. But that's the year it would end. Apparently, 2009 me also couldn't do eyebrows. 2019 me is sad for the lost friendships, and even sadder that attempts to rebuild some haven't worked out. 2019 me looks back at the 2009 photo and feels sad I felt unhappy with my size. 2019 me is sad that 2009 me felt I wasn't good enough, and felt the way to deal with that was to hurt myself. But 2019 me has grown in so many ways. I am proud to call myself a feminist, and support political movements close to my heart. 2019 me is in a happy relationship. With someone who respects me, and tells me daily he thinks I'm beautiful everyday. Time might not make everything better, and might even make some things worse. But it doesn't mean you've failed, it just means you're still working it all out 💙

Seraph - 2019 For my new series I want to focus on painting only fat bodies in ethereal/surreal settings. Focusing on their presence and beauty which is commonly reserved for thin white figures in pop surrealism. 😇

Today was a tough one. I wanted to curl up in a ball and sleep all day. But I didn't. I got up, went to my appointments, worked out, completed several tasks I've been meaning to get to and met everyone with a smile, all while being in immense emotional pain. ~ Now I'm at work and all I can think about is how much longer I've got left of this shift. I am taking it ten minutes at a time, this is how I cope. ~ I'm one of many people who cannot afford insurance to help with my poor mental health. I also work too many hours to be able to qualify for state assistance and my place of employment doesn't offer any type of medical insurance. To be honest, even if I worked a few hours less (to qualify for assistance), I wouldn't be able to pay my bills. It's a catch twenty. As unfortunate as it is, I still knowI'm one of the lucky ones, because I know help is there when I absolutely need it (even if it is costly) and I know I'm privileged in many ways because my depression and anxiety is something I can typically manage. I know the pain is temporary. But for many people, that's not the case. My heart goes out to those fighting invisible illnesses, physical disabilities and mental health who simply cannot just "deal with it". Lots of love your way, especially for those who are having a particularly hard day. ~ #roughday #mentalhealth #healthinsurance #mentalillness #fatpositive #plussize #takingupspace #fat #depression #anxiety #bodypositive #bopo

If I’m being honest, 2019 hasn’t been a great start for me. I’ve been struggling the last couple months to find the confidence that I had so easily earlier throughout last year. • I look through pictures of 6 months ago and wonder what about myself has changed so much that my brain won’t let me appreciate what’s behind the lens anymore. • I’m sharing this because I don’t want you to look at my grid and think that I never have moments of uncertainty. Confidence is a life long struggle with lows and highs. I’m currently go through a deep dive low but I’m working on reaching that mountaintop again. • For me that doesn’t look like torturing my body with unhealthy diets or ridiculous exercise routines but instead allowing it to move at a pace it needs and to take time to fall in love with each part again. It doesn’t happen overnight and it’s not a quick fix. • That’s okay though, I’m more excited about the journey to self love now more than ever. Thanks to friends, family and a community that supports women at every stage of life. The kindness I’m shown now reminds me how important it is that we reach out to others and show love and kindness, even when it doesn’t seem important. • Reach out to someone today you think might be struggling with something and share a kind word, it could mean the world of difference to them. • #bodypositive #bopo #allbodiesaregoodbodies #plussize #bodyconfidence #godmade #fearfullyandwonderfullymade #selflove #curvygirl #takingupspace #bigandbeautiful #honoryourcurves #loveyourbody #plussizewoman #curvywoman #celebrateyoursize #bodypositiveinspo #smile #plussizefashion #blonde #growingconfidence #bekind #thickthighssavelives #confidence #acceptance #loveyourself #blonde #changeyourmindset

Going through my 2018 planner I found these. They are from February (2018). At the time I was struggling with my eating disorder- counting calories, restricting my food intake, using exercise to lose weight. I was also experiencing daily/constant migraines and on tons of medications that weren't really helping. It makes sense that I was struggling with giving up hope. It all felt too much to deal with anymore. Numbing out of course felt like a great option. Gaining some control when I felt extremely powerless also seemed pretty logical. Thankfully I had learned from all the other hopeless, overwhelming moments when Ana didn't actually help. I wrote myself these notes to convince myself to eat, to fight. It makes me feel very sad to read these but I also admire how much tenacity I had in this dark moment. I'm actually really amazed at how strong I was in this battle. I was 6 months in of constant pain and primarily living in silence and darkness. And I could still see the end-- the healing that I knew was coming. And that's pretty cool :-) . . . . . . . . . . . #happytobealive #iamenough #iambeautiful #edrecovery #anarecovery #selflove #healing #findingbeauty #iamapieceoftheuniverse #ibelonghere #takingupspace #lovingmyself #lovinglife #alive #everydaybeauty #lifetothefull #myyokeiseasyandmyburdenislight #pursuingpeace #awakening #beasunflower #selfcare #ilovemyself #unashamed #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #anxietyrecovery #anxietywarrior

I rarely ever do these challenges, but I have to be honest, I was curious to dig back and find a picture from 10 years ago. And what I found not-so-surprising is that there weren’t many. This is one of only two pictures in ALL of 2008 that actually shows my full body...and I’m not gonna lie...that breaks my heart. It’s not that I lost a ton of weight from then until now...and if we’re looking at straight numbers on the scale, the difference isn’t much...but there’s a GLOW about this girl on the right. Something that shines deep down inside that surpasses perhaps a slimmer body. She knows her worth, her beauty, her significance, her purpose...she has gone through some of the most difficult circumstances and challenges that life could throw her way, but she’s strong, resilient and has let the hard things shape her in love and joy instead of bitterness and fear. And I pray that I get to look back another 10 years from now just to see that I’ve come even a longer way from here 💓 #10yearchallenge . . . . #plussize #plussizefitness #glowup #bodypositivity #bopofitness #effyourbeautystandards #embraceyourcurves #bodycon #nyc #plussizefashion #takingupspace #transformationtuesday

I have wavy hair by nature but sometimes I'll find little curly locks naturally forming on my head. I wish I could sport a whole head of curls because they're so cute, but I can never get my hair to curl on purpose. 😣 ~ Please excuse the poor lightning.

We went to a @hike.it.baby meetup and all of the six kids took turns screaming, for the most part. I'm the only one that brought a sled so they fought over the turns they were forced to take. Still, it's nice to be out in nature! People always ask: the coat is from Woman Within, and I hate that they're the only place I could find a coat since the name is fatphobic and gives me gender ugliebuglies. #fatinmotion #hiking #sofat #sobrave #fatliberation #fatglorificationcouncil #fatticorn #takingupspace #allbodyjourneysarevalid #radicalselflove

I’ve been looking at the people around me coming up with awesome themes and (business)plans for the year ahead with a mixture of awe and panic. I don’t have any epic plans, I don’t have any grand themes, any time I tried to come up with planning and manifesting I have just felt blocked and anxious. Today I was napping and drinking tea, writing, taking care of myself and I realise I do have a theme, a word for this year, I just had a lot of resistance against it. My theme is space. _ I’m in hibernation and I don’t know when I’ll get out of it and it scares the go-getter in me. I’m used to wanting to create new and exciting things and grow my business and right now I just want to be alone, by myself, in the silence. More space, less doing. More space for me, less getting absorbed in my business and my everyday life. More space to discover who I am when everything falls away. _ It’s not epic or grand, it’s the exact opposite of it. I feel a lot of resistance about it because it’s not “how it’s supposed to go”. I feel like I should be growing my business, taking on new clients, creating new content.. But space it is, for now I will stay in hibernation and I’m going to stick with what I already here and use the rest of my time to focus on me, creating space. _ #takingupspace #slowdown #selfcare #practicewhatyoupreach #smallbusinessowner #lightworker #enterpreneur #soulful #balance #lifeofayogatherapist #witchywoman #shadowwork #resistance #darkmoon #yoga #cyclicalliving #consciousliving #flow #hibernation #healing #theartistsway #creatrix #oracle

The first image is from 2008, when I was 18. The second picture of me is from January 11th 2019. . I'm paler, fatter, my eyebrows are slightly tamer and I don't have blonde hair anymore (it's for the best) but I'm still basically the same person I was 11 years ago, especially in the physical regard. . The biggest difference is how much harder I'm trying to get a good angle on the left because I cared SO damn much about how people viewed me. I had just gotten my hair dyed blonde for the first (and last) time and I wanted to show it off on social media, but I had to make sure not to get my puffy cheeks, double chin or large forehead in the shot. I angled the camera up high, raised my eyebrows to reduce the size of my forehead, and only ever captured my "best" side. But why? Look at me! I'm adorable! I wasted all that time hating myself when I could have been curing diseases or saving the world. 💜🤦‍♀️ . #fatandhappy #fatpositive #bopo #bodypositive #cute #plussize #fatandhappy #takingupspace #fatbabe #selflove #selfcare #beautyatanysize #bodyacceptance #blonde #redhead #redlips #blueeyes

I approached Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Corn, Dark, No.1. “ (1924) with a feminist lens. This painting was 1 out of 3 paintings of leaves from the corn 🌽 stalks that was growing in her garden on Lake George. I believe she painted this 3 part painting(s), in particular this one to as an appreciation of nature. To me, part of being a feminist is to not only be aware of the issues around women’s rights but to also appreciate the land and the space we take up. #georgiaokeeffe #feministlens #painting #environment

I went sledding today with my fam. No pics cuz we left our phones at home! I remember several years ago, when sledding was new to me, and my body was much smaller, I felt really self-conscious. I was embarrassed to show any kind of exertion climbing the sledding hill, I felt embarrassed that my butt didn't fit on the sled, I felt embarrassed about getting on the sled. I only enjoyed it on the rare occasions my husband and I could manage to go alone. I remember being really limited cardiovascularly. And when I went down, I squealed. My body is bigger now, but so is my confidence (and my cardiovascular ability level). I was able to flop around on the ground to get on the sled. I was able to ask for help to get my kid situated in front of me and a push to get going. And I let out big WAHOOOOOs on the way down. I so rarely get to feel so much joy and exuberance that I holler but sledding is one of those things. I feel so glad to see where I used to be - so self conscious I couldn't wahoo. Even the joy was so pent up it came out of me like the taut neck of a balloon and I was too embarrassed and afraid to try and get better at something that gave me joy. Bodies will always change, but ppl don't always. My cardiovascular ability will change again. Buuut mostly my point is that I got fatter, and I feel healthier both physically and mentally regardless of my ability to sled because I'm taking care of myself in ways that work for me - I'm in recovery for a lot of stuff that used to bother me - and I love myself a lot lot more. #wahoo #sledding #pauluspark #sofat #sobrave #fatliberation #fatglorificationcouncil #fatticorn #takingupspace #allbodyjourneysarevalid #radicalselflove

Sooo I’ve been too unwell to create content in the last few weeks but I thought I would use this as a chance to share some photos of my wedding, which I haven’t shared since getting lots of followers. I did my own make up on the day as I don’t trust anyone else to create looks to my taste. I’ll tag the brands I used. This crown is from @floraandthefox and the kimono and nighty are from @lunnantiques my aim was to go for a classic make up look to highlight my natural features, I thought a veil was to traditional so I went for the flower crown and made a feature from my long wavy red hair and I’m super happy how this went. Would you do your own make up or get an artist in for your wedding? 🔮🌙

Whoops! I had a ton of stuff to do today but I went on a mini road trip with my partner instead! It was a wonderful and very spontaneous five hour trip and I enjoyed every minute. 🚗⛰️🚘 . That being said, I am now home and the aftermath is killing me. I'm typically very hard on myself when I'm not productive enough during the day and take it really hard. I'm really trying not to let my anxiety and compulsive behavior get the best of me. I'm trying to remember to be kind to myself, like I constantly remind my friends to do, because I am also human and I deserve time off and mental health days and love and adventure and to be rich in experiences.

With my last effort to let my family understand my level, I admitted that I sleep all the time because I hate life, and it’s my only real escape. My bedhead is a tombstone for the living. With 2018 in the past, I hope I spend more time awake, and embracing new days. My small mental health goal this year is to taper from 200mg of pristiq to 50mg so I don’t miss out on the small highs in life. 🌸🌻 - - - - - - #fatpositive #fatbabe #honouryourcurves #altgirl #alternativegirl #alternativecurves #effyourbeautystandards #curvygirl #takingupspace #vegan #fatvegan #vegangirl #plussize #fatfashion #chubbytattooedgirls #chubby #thick #bpd #curvyrevolution #bigisbeautiful #chubbydancer #chubbygirl #citychic #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #scarstoyourbeautiful #fatgirl #recovery #sadgirl #pristiq #mentalhealth

I’ve been realizing as the past year came to an end and this one begins that I’ve been playing SMALL in so many parts of my life. Things that don’t need to stay small, they only were because of fear of the outside opinion, fear of the unknown, fear of reactions someone might have. . What a huge deal to realize where I can quit playing small in my life. Wow. It’s incredibly liberating. Just the small act of telling someone they can take up space, and that they are wanted, is revolutionary. . What’s one way you can quit playing small and take up more space in your life?

I call this 🌹 Concrete Rose for a Concrete Jungle 🌹, BUT the German artist, Isa Genzken calls her 26-foot-tall sculpture, Rose II. Public Art at its finest. Now this is how you take up space. #womenartists #takingupspace #publicart #concreterose #isagenzken
