La sociedad actual está colmada de estereotipos, uno de ellos es el lucir delgado, sobre todo la presión es en las mujeres. Las personas con sobre preso frecuentemente son blanco de burlas y discriminación. La realidad es que muchos se esmeran día con día por lucir delgados, no sólo por salud, también por la presión que ejerce la sociedad.
☀️Good morning and happy weekend!!! I’m off to the gym! Right now I’m really into morning yoga(just started learning) and heavy lifting, so why not start my weekend off with a good workout! 🧘🏼♀️🏋🏼♀️ Do you have any weekend plans?? . . Also… You know when you are fiddling with your phone and you accidentally screenshot? Well this selfie isn’t one of those…. but if l to SWIPE the next one will be. You asked for real Stephanie… here you go. Hahaha suckers. 😈 . . . Instagram vs. MY reality hahaha
Stephanie Seabrook es una mujer de 30 años que después de mucho esfuerzo logró vencer su sobrepeso. A pesar de su felicidad en el año 2015 se vio envuelta en un lío después de publicar en sus redes sociales una fotografía de su estómago, fue cuando muchos usuarios comenzaron a expresar su desprecio hacia su persona.
Sure. She gained weight. She also gained: Self love. Freedom. A love of delicious foods. An open mind. Sleep. A sense of self worth. Enjoyment in life. Peace with her body. Room in her mind for more important things. The time to relax. The knowledge of what and who she needs in her life. A sense of humor. HAPPINESS. (She also gained a clean mirror! 😆) 🤔 Gaining doesn’t seem like such a bad thing after all! Remember: the fat on our bodies doesn’t define who we are! What matters is what WE get out of life and what we leave behind for others. Enjoy those fries, sleep in when you need to or if you miss a workout don’t stress… there is always tomorrow! I choose to live with moderation and not deprivation. I will never forget being out a bar with my best friends and everyone was drinking except me. Which is fine but I said no to the drink because of the calories and I had goals. You know what I remember from that night 5 years ago? That I said no to a drink because of the calories. I didn’t remember the fun we had. I don’t remember the games of pool we probably played. Or how many times we laughed. I was even sober. No. I remember feeling guilty for wanting to indulge. I remember feeling scared of becoming fat again. I remember feeling insecure that I was still “the fat girl” at the bar. Shitty, right? Now, I chose to LIVE in the moment and not think about the trivial things. Think I’m fat? Ok, cool. Think I’ve failed? No prob. Think I should stfu? No gonna happen. And also not my prob. I’m too busy having fun, eating food, working out because I like to and not because I “have” to and living life to the fullest. Other people’s opinions about us shouldn’t effect us they way they do. (Easier said than done, I know). At the end of the day their words do to us what we allow them to. I will no longer allowed them to hurt me. But this is YOUR life. So do with it whatever you want!!! I wanted to eat the French fries… so I did. And OMG they’re good! 😂 Love you all! . . . . . . #mentalhealth #fatdoesntdefineyou #behappy #weightloss #weightgain #selfworth #happiness #mmmfrenchfries #fitfam #fitspo #igainedalotmorethanjustweight
Stephanie se tomó la fotografía después de someterse a una cirugía para eliminar la grasa de su abdomen. Varios usuarios expresaron su apoyo, pero otros la atacaron afirmando que había realizado varios trucos en la imagen para lucir más delgada. Ella decidió responder de la siguiente manera:
“Al principio traté de ignorarlo y no pensar en los comentarios, pero comenzó a empeorar progresivamente y con más frecuencia”.
My favorite thing about Instagram is meeting so many incredible people every day! I am seriously in awe of you guys. 🌼 @chantellevsg tagged me in this beautiful yet familiar photo! Her transformation is SO crazy inspiring. 🌷 Please swipe to see her amazing weight loss transformation and beautiful words she wrote regarding her skin. Show some love!! 🌺 @chantellevsg, thank you so much for letting me share your photos. You are a beautiful woman. ♥️ . . . . . . . . . #selflove #selfworth #fitfam #honoryourbody #loveyoursoul #fitspo #weightloss #love #power #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney
Stephanie no entendía porque su fotografía enfureció a muchísima gente, de varias maneras explicó que la fotografía no tenía ningún truco y eso enojó más a varios usuarios, tanto, que algunos comenzaron a amenazarla de muerte por “ser tan patética”. Stephanie comenzó a investigar de dónde venían las amenazas y descubrió que eran por parte de una chica que había conocido por Instagram y su intención era poner a más usuarios en su contra.
Because I aim to please and @runningvixen requested it… here is a comparison of my pre-surgery, before my gain, 60lbs heavier and today’s stomach. It’s crazy how the body adapts. I think my stomach is adjusting nicely after the gain. Only for me to ruin it with a baby at some point. (Jk, kinda🤪) Questions? Ask away! . . . . . . . . #tummytuck #looseskin #weightgain #weightloss #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #selflove #selfworth #loveyourself #healthylifestyle #transformation
Stephanie comenzó a sufrir mucha ansiedad y comenzó a ganar peso. Ella no quería defraudar a sus seguidores de Instagram, por lo que empezó a retocar sus fotografías, pero no logró ocultar la verdad por mucho tiempo.
It’s crazy to think that I wasn’t much happier at 185 from 340. It was like superficial happiness. Like “oh I have a ‘great’ body now so life will be easier and I’m getting attention.” Sure at 24 I thought that was happiness but oh was I wrong. I clearly did not learn everything I needed to so I started to gain weight; my journey was not over. Around the time my relationship with Kaycee became turbulent I started gaining weight. I went back into my old eating habits when I am upset or stressed. Fast food mostly. It was comforting again. But then I realized I was gaining weight I was too ashamed to admit it. I felt like I let myself down and let everyone else down. I tried to alter my photos to try make myself feel happy again. Thinking people will comment and say I looked good and maybe that would be the motivation I needed to succeed. Nope. That was a huge learning moment in my life. 1. Not all people are who they seem or portray. 2. Being dishonest will never bring happiness. Once I was, inappropriately, outed the flood gates of hate opened. After months of trying to deal with that I shut this account down for almost a year. On Jan. 20th, 2017 I decided no one gets to make me feel bad ever again, including myself. I came back, admitted my mistakes and moved forward. Sometimes it takes a period of time for reflection to figure out what changes need to be made. I needed to take time for me to heal and find myself again. I learned never to apologize for me and to just love and do the right thing every time. I have never been happier in my life and my relationship with my husband has never been better. I am human and will always make mistakes but it’s about not repeating the same mistakes. I know you have had hard times. But try to look at them as a positive. Because hard times are what allow us to grow and learn. Right? Don’t let a number or fat on your body limit your love for yourself. Errbody needs more LOVE! If you ever feel like you need to talk, vent or just need someone to listen I am always here. ♥️
Stephanie tuvo tanta presión en su cuenta de Instagram que decidió cerrarla y buscó ayuda psicológica para volver a perder peso y sentirse bien. Ella ha mencionado en diferentes ocasiones que sin su familia no hubiera podido superar este proceso, gracias a ellos y a su fuerza de voluntad logró bajar 20 kilos.
Nothing better than morning belly when you're losing weight. Feeling and seeing progress is so motivating. I get a lot of messages asking how I stay motivated. And honestly I just love how I feel enough to keep going. It's a hard question to answer because everyone is motivated differently. I started back on my weight loss journey back in January. I woke up one day and it just clicked. I was done hating myself and being sad about who I was. Ever since then I have done things to help me get to my goals. When I eat something I ask myself "how am I going to feel five minutes after I eat this?". That helps me stay accountable when it comes to food and also addresses my emotional eating. It's hard being fat and it's hard getting fit. You just need to pick the "hard" you want to live with. (That's what she said😜Haha!) I make one healthy choice at a time. Whether it is a meal or a workout. Just take it a day at a time, stay positive and know you have the capability of reaching your goals. The hardest part is that first step, but it's also the most exciting!! #progress #weightloss #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #workout #dontquitgetfit #findyourhappy #health
