I'm Gina, normally I'm a happy & adventurous person but....

When I realized I was 5'2 and near 200 lbs I felt devastated and decided to turn my life around. I would avoid looking in mirrors and my health was declining. That's not the pathway of life that was intended for me; or ANYONE...LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!

The first time around that I lost weight I fell into an even unhealthier obsession with food because I restricted myself from everything and I had no idea how to handle my emotions and daily life struggles causing me to spiral down and develop a binge eating disorder which I am slowly conquering one day at a time.


Height: 5'2

Highest Weight: 194 lbs

SW: 189.0 lbs

Happy Labor Day Americans!

My family doesn’t celebrate this holiday with a BBQ like most normal people do so today I shall sit at home and do homework :(

Saturday workout is complete! I found a new Zumba class that offers Saturday classes at 8:30 am and I decided to give it a try. It was pretty fun and I was left drenched in sweat. So glad I got over my laziness and went.

One of my biggest insecurities is my stretch marks. After I had my son I was covered in them. It’s been over two years and the deep gashes have made no progress on disappearing.

So in an attempt to try to not hate them (and myself) as much, here they are.

Women are incredible

These are here because you grew a person! Nothing to be ashamed of!

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

God bless her
