Though I am anxious, scared, and sad to have left some of my favorite people behind, I am embracing this new chapter with a fierceness. Here’s to new beginnings with beautiful babes. (@chloemcandrew &

Girl, I get how you look in the mirror and pick apart every inch of yourself. 😢 I understand how you never feel good enough. I know the comparison game you play over and over in your head. I get what feeling “trapped” in your body can be like. I understand your feelings of wishing you were born with a different set of legs, arms, skin complexion, nose, etc. 😢 I fought those feelings for years. I had it in my head I wasn’t enough.
💕But I am enough. You are enough. You are worthy of love, joy, happiness, success, a loving life partner, and whatever you want in this world. Your appearance doesn’t define your worth and value. ❤️God created you uniquely and differently than EVERY other human on the planet. You weren’t meant to look or be like another person. Let this statement give you freedom from the comparison and lies. You ARE ENOUGH. It is that simple. ❤️✌🏽🙏🏽
Face to face Friday! The first picture was taken over 3 years ago on a fall walk with my family. I remember looking at the photo and loving the colours, the kids smiles but not loving my chubby face! I felt like who I was on the inside did not match my outside appearance. In the January after this picture, I started using a weight loss/calorie counter app and lost some weight but within a couple months gained the weight back.... after awhile I felt like being chubby was my destiny because I felt like nothing worked!
When I started Beachbody in January 2017, I was honestly the heaviest I had ever been in my life and I couldn't even stand looking at my face in the mirror, let alone being in a photo! The fact that this plan included workouts scared me! I hadn't worked out since having my kids and I always thought I had to lose some weight before I started exercising to prevent injuries. Not true!! These workouts have been the key component to my success! The physical gains, the confidence gained, the mental benefits, all these things from a daily workout! And I have lost 45 lbs and kept it off for almost a year- which has never happened ever in my life! All from being taught how to live healthy from this plan!
This plan- 1 year access to hundreds of streamed Beachbody workouts, the portion control system, access to an accountability group (priceless) and 1 month of Shakeology (a super foods daily dose of nutrition!) is $10 off until the end of this month. If you want more information about this healthy living plan message me- it was the best decision I ever made!
There is strength in the blindness that you may be feeling, and courage in the ache of your beating heart. Keep moving forward, darling.
Love this 😍 First came across this over on @becomingjuliet_ (who also loves talking all things anxiety, you should check her out. I met her in the reals and she is awesome 💜). Just a little reminder tonight that you don't need to carry these. How could you lay them down? 📷Image Credit: @positivelypresent

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16
my little wild man, he waits until i’m asleep to snuggle close, he always shares my plate when my eyes are bigger than my stomachs, and he makes sure i’m never lonely on long drives. happy #nationalloveyourpetday@astoldbydog 😭

It's been just over a week since having our third child and I've been reminded afresh of God's creative power. We are fearfully and wonderfully made ❤️

a year ago i said yes to this adventure, hopping in a jeep with two girls i had just met to drive thirteen hours away and live in a tent through a sandstorm, some of our toughest climbs, and the biggest emotional battle i will ever face.
these two immediately became more than friends, they became family. so naturally, on this next adventure, i’d be a fool to say no.
love you babes, one week and it’s home sweet home. ♥️
It seems Netflix thinks people with Down Syndrome are not a market they have to worry about offending. What they do not realize is that this is not just about the 400,000 people living with Down syndrome but the MILLIONS that love them! Tom Segura a comedian on Netflix, loves the R-word and tried to say he is not targeting anyone by using it. Moments later he states since you are not supposed to use the R-word instead say something like “Your idea has an extra 21st chromosome!” Targeting Down syndrome specifically! Please help us defend this act and let Netflix see that we DO HAVE A VOICE! Please stand with GiGi's & all of our families by sharing with universities, media, corporate America ...your entire network.
How else can you help? . *Sign the petition (link in bio) -
*Contact Netflix - 1-866-579-7172 (Press 0 to be connected to a live person). *Mail a letter to Netflix Corporate Headquarters 100 Winchester Circle Los Gatos, CA 95032
*Reach out to locations who are hosting Tom's shows and ask that they take a stand for Generation G.
As a community who fully believes in Generation G we ask that you rise above hate and meet it with kindness, let's show the world the strength we have in love & respect. Be Accepting. Be Generous. Be Kind. 💛💙💛💙💛💙 #generationG#gigisplayhouse#wearethechange#takeitdownnetflix#strongertogether#netflix#notapunchline
