Time for a myth buster! You DON’T have to be thin to have an eating disorder you know 🙄 Eating disorders don’t have a specific size! Some people with severe anorexia can be seriously underweight however some actually aren’t and some people even fluctuate in weight. Also, people that have bulimia and binge eating disorder come in all shapes and sizes. Think twice before you dismiss an individual’s experiences because of their appearance 🤷🏾‍♀️💡
A different type of #transformationtuesday for myself... from my lowest weight, to gaining 70 lbs at the end of my pregnancy, to today 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m always a work in progress, and still have about 45 lbs to get back to my pre pregnancy weight... with a little sweat and consistency, nothing’s impossible! 😅💪🏼 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Have you got a few minutes to spare? 🧐 This week’s #selfcare tip is simple - get into contact with a loved one, have a catch up, vent about what’s going on or just discuss the weather... We often underestimate the importance of maintaining contact with our loved ones and how it can positively affect our #mentalhealth . Get to chit-chatting! 👭👬
I thought I’d put this up with no filter and no make up so that you guys can see what fasting does for your skin!!! Extremely happy, I’ve only had one spot that’s tried to come out and then disappeared again.... my body is natural defences are fighting, everything seems to be functioning from the inside which is fantastic!!! Extremely happy with day 6 results with my skin...😃🤛🏽👊🏽👌🏽 #NoFilter #NoMakeUp #myskin #CleanSkin #toxincleanse #LiverCleanse #ToxinCleaner #freshskin #freshskincare #skinheaven #LookingAfterMyBodyFromTheInside #somethingtoprove #somethingdifferent #strongertogether #will #willpower #abettermeiscoming #feelingood #feelingreat #stronger #ShelleyElvin #MentalFitnessHealth #skinroutine #neverfeltbetter #neverfeltsogood #moreenergy
Work hard in silence. Let success make the noise. #abettermeiscoming #body #fitness 💪
Slept in this AM, 💤 and I def felt the difference in my day. Nothing wrong with getting in a little more sleep (thank God baby slept in also!) but I had to beat the sun this evening... with the way things are in the world, I’m actually quite a scaredy cat, so exercising at night isn’t usually my thing. 🏃🏻‍♀️ I guess that little bit a fear helps me run faster 😅 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Here’s the positive affirmation of the week 👆🏾 You can conquer ANYTHING you put your mind to - don’t forget that 💡
Through a long and painful process, I've learned that happiness is an inside job - not based on anything or anyone in the outer material world. I've become a different and better person - not perfect, but still a work in progress.

The difference a year can make in your life. I’m down 3 pants sizes and 3 top sizes. I have loads of energy. The nutrition is the key!! #widow #widowspeak #abettermeiscoming #shakology 😀
Good morning everyone! It’s time for your #mondaymotivation ✨ Going after what you want can be scary as it requires leaving your comfort zone, but if you don’t make a start now - you’ll always be in the same place 🙃 The dreams don’t work useless YOU do, so make this week count, you’ve got this 💛💡
It’s been exactly one month since I reintroduced a physical component to my weight loss- so while I KNOW scales are not to be trusted I jumped on one this morning, and guess what?! 🙄 NO CHANGE! NO LOSS! I’m exactly the same weight! Which immediately pissed me off cuz I’m like hello?! I’ve been eating right and I’m jogging now! Somethings gotta budge... anyway, I go on my morning outing with babygirl here feeling a little down, intending just to walk and I immediately get the urge to go harder 💪🏼 so we went for an amazing run 🏃🏻‍♀️ I had time to reflect and the fact is I TRUST THE PROCESS! I know my body will respond to what I’m doing and maybe I need to tweak something here and there, maybe it’s hormones or bloating, maybe it’s a big 💩I don’t know, but I won’t let this discourage me, because look here, 👀 Someone very special is watching me, and I refuse to let her (or me!) down, ever! 🙌🏼 If you’re feeling the same, DON’T STOP! Keep going!!! 👊🏼 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig

Did you know that in 2014, there were 6581 suicides recorded in the UK & Republic of Ireland? 💡 #suicideawareness #mentalhealth
A little change in the last year 😎 im proud of my self and disapointed in the same time. I could have done much more but doing ut all by my self without a partner have been difficult and it still is. Its so easy to skip practise when you are alone. #proudofmyself #change #motivation #itshardalone #givingupisnotanoption #abettermeiscoming #iwillnotstop
8 weeks ago I could not even do one push-up. Yes I still modify on my knees but I’m getting better. Just finished LIIFT 4 !! Round 1. #liift4results #lovingyourself #abettermeiscoming
Changes in behaviour over a period of time can often be a sign that you or someone you know is developing a mental illness. - ‪This weeks sign to look out for is 👆🏾
I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me👣🌻💞 who's ready for the weekend?!🙋 I know that I am. #byronbay #streetart #local #photography #smile #strongwomen #innerhappiness #innerstrength #foundmyself #littlebylittle #abettermeiscoming #selflove #selfawareness #selfgrowth #fridayfeels
This is 38. Talk of growing older is typically taboo for women. But I am embracing my age. Hell, I’ll shout it from the rooftops. Sure, I have a few more wrinkles than I would like, and there seems to be some gray hair popping up. But I’m proud of the woman I have become, and the obstacles I have overcame in the last few years. I am optimistic that 38 will be my best year yet; physically, spiritually, financially, and emotionally. Bring it! I’m ready to rock 38! Thank you to everyone who took time out of their day to wish me a happy birthday! #nofilter #birthday #38 #growingoldgracefully #embracingage #38thbirthday #proud #woman #natural #goodvibes #optimistic #confident #positivechangesahead #abettermeiscoming
Suicide prevention isn’t hard, and it’s something that should be everyday... Be nice to people, you never know the thoughts going through another person’s head 🤯 Simple words like asking how someone is doing could really save a life 💛 #suicidepreventionday #suicide
Let’s be clear, I’m not the best at meal planning. However, I stick to healthy eating by just NOT buying the junk 🙅🏻‍♀️ it does not enter my home (unless hubby sneaks it in for himself!) 🤦🏻‍♀️ This is my usual lunch 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sorry! Not creative, not flashy- 2 packets of tuna in water (drained), a whole avocado (I usually do half but no one wanted the other half and it’s a sin to throw out a PERFECT avocado!) and a little more than a handful of pita chips! It’s quick, easy to bring to work and requires ZERO effort! 😁 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Lmfao don’t mind me. When I have too much time in my hands, I do weird things. God bless, stay positive, and just know that everything will fall into place. If your life is already good, it’s going to get better. 🤝🙏🏼😘 #goodnight #imoffforreal #filters #needavacation #happiness #myheartsdesire #iwantwhatsbestforme #takemeaway #positivevibes #Godiswithme #theangelsarewithme #peace #love #life #prayer #selflove #iwillattitude #selflove #everythingwillfallintoplace #patience #sacrifice #abettermeiscoming
How many times do we forget that life is a journey?! 😩 It’s okay to not be exactly where you want to be YET, as long as you continue working hard to get there. Eventually you will - so don’t give up! 💛💡
I’m appreciating these life lessons. Even if I’m not ready for them. They are teaching me a lot. I realized that the bad is not always bad. #aBetterMeIsComing
While you’re working to get to where you want, it’s easy to beat up yourself if/when things don’t go to plan... but be nicer to yourself, you’re doing a lot better than you think you are ANDDD your mind will love it 😍💛💡
•if I know you personally, AVERT YOUR EYES!• You don’t get a body like mine overnight, it takes neglect, childbirth, and pizza 😂 Okay, enough with the negative self talk, I’m just leaving this here for comparison, I know this is the “before” photo... I’ve done this before (though it doesn’t make it any easier!) so I know I will see the results of my efforts, soon. I trust the process, though it seems to be a little slower for me with a little rugrat this time around... 🤷🏻‍♀️ #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Give yourself time to grow🌱 This is something that I constantly need to remind myself, that I’m still growing, and that’s more than okay👍🏻👍🏻 This illustration made me feel so proud of myself when I finished it in Berlin because I felt like it was one of my first pieces where I was able to fully express myself and what what I was feeling. And now when I look at it, I still feel those things, but it motivates me and gives me strength because I know A Better Me is Coming✨ & that’s what I hope others feel when they see this too. #innerpeachdesign
No guys, you CAN’T die from a panic attack 🙄 Panic attacks can be very scary, they can include trembling, nausea, dizziness and heart palpitations but they can’t kill you! However, it is important to note that living with prolonged periods of stress can take its toll on both your mind and body, so we need to always treat the underlying issues 💡
Afternoon all! 👋🏾 Today’s #selfcare tip is to fix your sleeping pattern! 😴 There is actually a relationship between sleep and poor #mentalhealth - sleep problems can contribute to the development of a #mentalillness or they can prolong one by making it harder to cope 😭
Oh my!! spaghetti squash, why have I been afraid to try you!! I think I’m in love with a vegetable!! #squashing #abettermeiscoming #fitwidows
Gave my knee all day to rest, but I had to go out and do something... got up and went for a walk. You know what kills me? I cover the same distance walking or running in the same amount of time 🤦🏻‍♀️ #beginnerrunner lol oh well, I feel good I made some sort of effort to get out there tonight and keep moving! Now you go! #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Here’s the positive affirmation of the week 👆🏾💛💡
The things I mentioned as a child are beginning to happen. The dreams I had as a child are becoming a reality and I’m amazed. Everything I’m doing now is to have a better future and I’m doing my best to make the right moves to make sure my future children have a life that is filled with love, joy, travel, an excellent education, and more. I want what’s best for them; but right now it’s about me getting what’s best for me. My husband is going to be a very happy man I tell you lol. 🙏🏼❤️💋#life #love #thefuture #iwantwhatsbestforme #sacrifice #everythingisfallingintoplace #joy #love #family #happymonday #friendship #commitment #peace #positivevibes #iknowwhatiwant #imready #Godiswithme #prayer #investinginmyself #abettermeiscoming #selflove #handlingbusiness
At times you might find that something you’ve planned out completely doesn’t work out the way you wanted it to... 😭 If your plan doesn’t work, make sure you don’t give up - change the plan & find another way to achieve that goal! 💛💡✨ #mondaymotivation
If you're looking for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror 💕 . . #icutmyhair #abettermeiscoming #confidence #happiness #choosehappy #pcosweightloss #bodyunderconstruction #weightlossjourney #selflove #restandrelaxation #minivacation

Do you know how common it is for a person to experience a #mentalhealth problem in the workplace? 💡

Sometimes, this is what working out looks like- laundry, toys, messy house and all! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 45 minutes, lifting a 25 pounder! 💪🏼 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
What do you want from September? 👀 As the first week of September draws to a close, let’s focus on what we want to gain from it 🤗💡 Make a note of everything you want to achieve in September and start working towards it! 📝
Active rest day today with lots of walking and stretching- I am feeling the last few days of workouts just about EVERYWHERE! 😩 Hurts so good! Me and babe spent today recovering- her, from that pesky cold 😓 and me, from old age! 👵🏽 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Taking time out can be more beneficial for your #mentalhealth than you think... it’s completely fine! 💡
I would usually be mad at this. But since we had a Deep conversation about my actions and the Fuckery that comes out of my mouth I appreciate this... #ImLearning #ABetterMeIsComing #AWorkInProgress #IAppreciateThis
In order to have a different tomorrow, we need to change something TODAY! 💡 Always push harder than you did the day before - your future self will thank you for it ☺️🙌🏾
Whelp! The weather didn’t clear until after baby was in bed... took the opportunity just now to go for a run 🏃🏻‍♀️ please don’t judge my super slow pace, I’m learning how to run all over again (actually, I was never done learning the first go around) 🤷🏻‍♀️ point is, I got it done! Stiff knees, shitty weather, sick baby, whatever, it got done ✅ Go get it done! #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Unfortunately there are people that believe depression is a character flaw 🙄 You wouldn’t put a heart condition down to someone’s character, so why would you do it with depression? 😓 Research has shown that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, therefore it can affect anyone, no matter their personality! 🤯📝
Today’s #selfcare tip is to simply do something nice for yourself! You matter and your #mentalhealth matters so do something good for it 💛💡
Here’s the positive affirmation of the week 👆🏾💛💡
And a new opportunity at getting closer to where I want to be 💕 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig

There’s a tropical storm ⛈ that’s coming through all day today... so I did some planning last night and found this killer #popsugarfitness video to replace this mornings run. I couldn’t do all 45 min, but 25 min completed and I feel GOOD! Saving this to try again another day! 😅 Happy Labor Day, friends! 👋🏼 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofig
Good morning everyone! ✨ Here’s your #mondaymotivation : When it comes to dreams, we all have them, they’re free... but remember that the hustle is always sold separately, meaning we do need to actively work towards the dream. Make sure this week is one where you’re putting the work in - every move counts! 💡👣
Dinner done right! A healthy life starts with what you put in your mouth. . . . #farmtotable #farmersmarketdinner #foodonthegrill #abettermeiscoming #lifeinprogress
Here’s a quick review of my day. 💁🏻‍♀️ First time wearing my #Polar activity tracker in months! Pleasantly surprised, especially with the amount of sleep I’m getting now that baby girl is used to not feeding at night! 🙌🏼 Steps ✅ Exercise ✅ Sleep ✅ all that’s left for this Sunday night is some football! 🏈 #postpartumweightloss #fitmomsofIG
Sometimes you won't hear from people not because they're upset with you, but because they're working on themselves, they're away pursuing purpose, seeking God, restoring, getting focused, cultivating, developing, and growing. Don't personalize their need to withdrawal. #Becoming #ABetterMeIsComing #SelfDiscoveryJourney #OutWithTheOld #InWithTheNew #SelfImprovementMovement #AWomanAndHerGod #LifeOfBoitumelo #WomanOfVirtue
