I’ve alway loved this color. I just wore it with 55lbs extra body weight, a Looow Self Esteem,  a horrible fast food- processed food-dead food diet, bad Posture, & really baggy clothes so my obesity wouldn’t appear so obvious. 16 years old weighing 220lbs. A year later I changed my entire lifestyle.  Became vegan which dropped 30 lbs, stop perming my hair and grew locs, started wearing long skirts, reading spiritual empowerment books, meditating and fasting. This was the first to many other transformations I’ve put myself through. This is why I motivate through refinement. I know a few types of pains, I also know the solutions. #tbt #transformationthursdays #trainandtransform #therefinementgroup

I’ve come to realize, every one isn’t going to like me. And sometimes a member of that everyone was a person I really wanted to stay liking me. So I would hide this piece, omit that piece to maintain the piece they knew as picture perfect. Damn it sucked living a fearful life! I like being naked to much to speak that inhibited language.  Naked with my thoughts,  my feelings,  and yes my body too. Which is why Love is my favorite dialect.  Everyone understands it.  #Imwired #love #lovelanguage #freeyourself #therefinementgroup

Now that the summer’s heat has bid us New Yorkers farewell, I hit the gym for an indoor workout today for the doest rime in 2 weeks.  It’s still in the 70’s but not the same. I love exercising outside in that heat!. I did arms and abs. I’m loosing my lower abs😣 but the great thing about muscle memory, is you simply have to pay more attention,  & work to that muscle groups and walah! They’re giving poppage again. Shout to my sidekick Lotus in the back😘 #gymflo #upperbody #workout #TheRefinementgroup

No body has to approve of your body once you’re comfortable with your body. I no longer poison my body with ungrateful language knowing it’s the vehicle who takes me through my days.. I no longer say if only this were smaller,  or I’d be good if that were bigger, or I wish there were no stretch marks here or scars there. I accept every perfect and socially unacceptable part of me now. That which I can change with a little eating change and exercise I work out 5 days a week towards, that which I can not change, I love regardless.  No more shame in my frame. Love me or leave me alone.
