Hand of Doom- Black Sabbath
One thing I learned about myself today was that I can't "pretend" I'm confident to squat (x) amount of lbs. I need to BELIEVE in myself that I am strong enough to actually squat it. And that mindset comes from the set up...getting under the bar, finding the tightness, and securing the weight on your back. My mind has to be already picturing myself squatting it. I learn to let the nerves happen, but not allow it to take over my ability to squat. Embrace it💪🏼❤️Although some people practice mental rituals that look quite over the top, if there's a purpose behind it and it works for you, then do what you gotta do.💁🏻
Haven't done deadlifts in a while but felt really good doing them tonight! Definitely feel stronger in my legs and core then I was when I last did them! Also my form may not be perfect but its damn sure better then when I started! Use code ChrisGetsSwole20 for 20% off your orders @chaosandpain!

As a child, Lori Filipiak always found comfort in food, including, she says, “the whole pizza with French onion dip, whole bags of chips, fast food I would get when no one was around.” At her heaviest, Filipiak weighed 265 pounds. A bad marriage when she was 19 years old set the stage for her to make a change. “I can remember being out with him and (him) introducing me as his cousin and not his wife,” Filipiak, now 42, said, speaking of her now ex-husband. “That was huge for me. I was done … and that was the day I got my life in order.” The receptionist from Springfield, Ill., who stands five feet, nine inches tall, told People that she started out by walking, and then progressed to more demanding workouts, along with cutting out red meat, sugary snacks and fried foods. ----------------------------------------------------------------

Perhaps one of the biggest #NSV's (Non-Scale Victories) of them all.. picking up a mesh shirt that you know is definitely see-through, trying it on, and going "yup.. you can rock this. You can wear this!!!!" and making the damn purchase!!
Sure, I don't have a rock hard ab-tastic stomach. Sure, my scars show. But I don't care. I felt great in that shirt.. and the fact I even had the courage to try something on I NEVER would have taken off the rack in the first place 70+ pounds ago was a big enough success for me. But I'm happy to say I bought the shirt and wore it out last night... Henry very much approved.. 😉And I very much approved. <--- And that's what matters!

Yesterday while curling* my hair, I looked in the mirror and realized what I looked like just standing there. 😂 #CuteRight? I said to myself, "THIS IS REALITY." No one curls their hair or really does anything like the pictures we post on Instagram.⠀
✨POSING IS EVERYTHING✨⠀
I've debated doing a post like this for a long time. 🤷🏻♀️ I've seen several people do it and I have always admired the honesty and the message! ⠀
We are ALL guilty of posting only the best! 🙋🏻 Myself included. What has been on my mind lately is how many young girls and women are seeing these posts? 😳 Instead of just seeing posed/edited/perfected women on magazines, TV and movies like when I was growing up-they have it EVERYWHERE. ⠀
To all the young women out there:⠀
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. 🤗⠀
There is nothing wrong with caring about what you look like! However, ALWAYS remember that a lot of what you see isn't reality. #RealTalk#JoSandiFIT
Dude this is so crazy!! I just came across this picture for the first time and I don't think I have any other photos showing the stretch marks I had pre weight loss so well.. (Fun fact: I have almost 14 THOUSAND pics on my phone so whenever I go through them I tend to find some crazy ishhh that I've completely forgotten about😂)
Anyway, stretch marks are something I get asked about every single day. Personally, my body was pretty much covered in stretch marks by the age of 12-13. At that point I was overweight, but definitely not morbidly obese. Weight definitely plays a role in whether a person gets stretch marks or not, but I'd say even more so than that, genetics is a huge factor. You can sort of see in this photo (which was taken around probably 275lbs or so) that the stretch marks on the lower part of my belly were lighter and they got darker toward the top. That's because the lower ones were older and they slowly spread up my belly as I gained weight.
As far as getting rid of stretch marks, they are permanent. Once your skin tears or "stretches," there really isn't a way to reverse that. They do however fade over time, and definitely with weight loss. My stretch marks are now pretty much all white and super faded, but the texture is still there, sort of like a scar.
Losing the weight is the only thing I personally did to fade my stretch marks, no creams, oils or other products. I'm sure there are things that help, but when it comes down to it- being morbidly obese stretches your skin and some people are just genetically prone to stretch marks. Frankly, I don't give a damn about a single mark, scar or dimple on my body. They are natural, they are beautiful, and they really tell part of my story. 💗 #teamlosing ***PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO SELL YOUR WRAPS/PILLS/CREAMS TO MYSELF OR THE PEOPLE FOLLOWING ME*** Having and displaying imperfections does NOT mean we are looking for a "solution" or trying to "fix" them.
