  • When I was competing back in 2015, I dated someone who was also big into bodybuilding. We vibed about fitness, but otherwise the relationship was emotionally abusive, manipulative and F’ed up.
That October, I competed in my 2nd bikini show and gained about 20 lbs shortly afterwards, something that is relatively “normal” in the industry (even though it’s the unhealthy rebound effect of dehydration, starvation and post-show binge eating). But I, of course, felt like a complete failure for not keeping my “bikini body” after the competition and emotionally, I was a mess. 😔
One night, this person looked at me and said, “I’m so glad you’re not skinny anymore. I don’t like f*cking skinny girls.”
My whole world came crashing down.
Suddenly my entire IDENTITY was questioned because
(a) someone called me “not skinny” which in my head == fat which in my head == worthless, pathetic, lazy, failure, ugly, etc and
(b) I tortured myself to be thin and all my efforts were a waste?!??
All I could think in my head was “WTF, WTF, WTF” on repeat.
It took me much time to process this, but the main thing I learned is that your body is not created for anybody but YOU.
It’s not for pleasing men (or women).
It’s not for likes on an Instagram picture.
It’s not for society’s approval.
Your body is YOUR home.
So don’t give it away to fuckboys, to diet culture or to ANYONE who questions your intrinsic beauty. ♥️

I want to share more about loving your body during sex, dating and relationships… Would you like that?

  • Just out here being a mermaid in front of the Golden Gate Bridge 🧜‍♀️ I spent the past week on a road trip with bae going from Arizona all the way up to Portland 😍
There used to be a time when traveling made me nervous because I was scared of “falling off the wagon” and so I’d bring alllll my meals with me (no joke, I’d cook all my food, freeze it and then bring it with me on the plane in a giant backpack). 😬
The same fear would arise when it came to hanging out with friends, going out on dates, even eating dinner with my family.
As much as I wanted to believe that dieting was healthy, it actually took AWAY from my life.
Now, I LOVE traveling and do it often! ✈️
I LOVE dating (hehe, more on this later 😉)
And dinner with family and dessert with my sister are the precious moments I live for. ♥️

Have you ever missed out things because you were too scared to mess up your diet?
.

Side note: these pants are from @aloyoga and I was thinking of making a YouTube video reviewing my fav yoga pants for curvy girls.☺️ Would you like this? If so, which brands do you want me to feature???

  • I remember I used to think that I needed to find someone who would love me “despite my body”. How wrong I was #bodypositivememes

  • I’ve been staring at a screen trying to build the #bigandboss website all day.
.
Unlike my other site this one has so many photos of me on it. It feels really uncomfortable. I am trying to separate my self-consciousness from the ‘business-head’ and remind myself that people need to see me.
.
Clients aren’t gonna hand over hard earned dollars to a stranger. Seeing my mug helps to reassure them that I actually am a human, and I am real and they trust me...
.
See, this is why the idea of big and boss is so important to me. Our nasty self-talk is getting in the way of us succeeding in business. I am here to do my stinkin’ best to change that!
