May is #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and although it’s almost over, I’ve debated on writing and posting this, but I realize someone, somewhere may need to hear it. I’ve suffered from depression for as long as I can remember and it’s STILL something I struggle with today as I am on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications. When I was just 2 years old, my parents divorced so I never knew what it was like to grow up in a loving home with both parents. My dad was a drunk and my mom was struggling to make ends meet and was never around so my grandma was my parent until she died in 2010 from cancer. In my teens, I was abused by my mom and at times even my step-father. When I say abused I mean physically and emotionally. I developed an eating disorder and I started cutting myself to deal with the pain. Fast forward a few years I married and divorced when I was barely 20. I turned to alcoholism to cope with the pain of it all. The thought of taking my own life made sense so many times but I didn’t. I looked for love in all the wrong places because growing up I didn’t really receive it. I didn’t love myself because my own parents didn’t love me. How could I love me? It wasn’t until I met my current husband that I realized my worth. He treated me like I was a diamond. And then I was blessed with two amazing kids who think I’m just the greatest thing. Because of them, I started to love myself again. I want you to know I’m not perfect. I struggle daily with my own demons. I want you to also know it’s OKAY. Life gets better after it gets worse. There’s no other option after you hit rock bottom and you’ve got nothing to lose. The only place to go is up. Depression doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t matter how fit you are. It doesn’t matter how much money you make. It doesn’t care. Get your mind healthy before ever worrying about your body. It’s the most important thing you have and it’s ok if it’s an ongoing battle like mine. As long as you keep fighting to better yourself, you’re doing the best you can. Be easy on yourself. Love yourself if no one else does. Have your own back. But remember that I’m here, too. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #depression
First day back at work and reality after our dream of a vacation 💫 so yes, this ☝🏼 is me today haha work this morning, getting my ring 💍 sized (have to leave it overnight 😢) watching the #greysanatomy season finale then workout!

THURSDAY |•> • Challenge ✔️🙌👏😁 split squat & snap push up 😊 • • Doing legs tomorrow, kind of scared 😂😂
Super freaking thankful for my chocolate smoothies (with a dash of sprinkles because it’s Friday-eve, DUH), especially on mornings like today where I had a doctors appointment 40 minutes away, rushing to get myself and Emory dressed and out the door. Much quicker than a drive-thru and MUCH healthier. A double bonus? I don’t crave sweets when I drink this and that’s huge for this pregnant mama! . . . . . #healthiestmealoftheday #chocolatesmoothie #momwins #30weekspregnant #3rdtrimester #momof2 #toddlermama #fridayeve #happyandgrateful #highschoolsweetheart #happygirlsaretheprettiest #newlywed #railroadwife #railroadlife #sweatingitout #sweatingforthewedding #pregnancybrain #pregnancyworkout #bbggirl #tiuatlanta #southerner #soccermom #bigchanges #behappynow #beproudofyourself #478 #georgiapeach
Oh my....this is a big throwback to 2008 when I was 18 years old 😄 you know, the most funny thing about this is that I thought I am FAT! I mean, WTF? 🙈 how could I? I can definitely see the definition now, but never mind 😅 the good thing is that I am no longer so hard on myself, I just try to eat right and do these little steps towards my goal and most importantly to have healthy pregnancy and positive mind 🙌 happy Thursday! #tbt #throwbackthursday #fitnessjourney #bbgweek15 #bbggirl #kaylaitsines #35weekspregnant #pregnant #activepregnancy #fitpregnancy #screwthescale
My constant, my rock 😏 #tbt to one of the happiest days.
When you can’t find the sunshine. ☁️ BE THE SUNSHINE! 🌞 You have it all within yourself! 😍 . What’s your morning routine? Mine is having celery juice in the morning, followed by some lemon water, maybe some matcha and most likely these golden milk gummies (recipe coming soon)... All in which to jumpstart my day and heal my thyroid autoimmune disease. 🤗
Tag a Friend You Want to Help Motivate 💕 @fatgirlfedup "At 485lbs I was the girl that hid behind the camera or made a funny face. I was the girl that hid in all black clothing at the gym to look smaller and so others couldn't see how much I sweat. I was the girl who hid in the bathroom at the gym to take selfies when there were too many people. I was the girl that hid behind many things in life to avoid standing out or being heard. Not because I didnt love myself or my body but because i was always the shy quiet girl that avoided being the center of attention. Not anymore. I was a prisoner in my own body & living as a slave to food for 25 years. I know now I was born to stand out, be heard, and change lives. Losing 303lbs not only saved my life, but the journey helped make me who I am today. 2017 isnt over yet & it's never too late to be the best version of yourself.

Another tuna salad bowl for lunch. Tuna made with low fat Greek yogurt, mustard, lemon, salt & pepper on gem lettuce with yellow bell pepper, red onion, cherry tomatoes, olives, fresh basil 🌿 and mint, topped with oregano. I’ve got to say, the mint makes it. Just what I needed post workout. #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgsisters #bbggirl #bbgfitfam #bbgeats #bbgmeal #bbglunch #healthyeating #healthyfood #bbgfood #healthyeats #healthymeal #healthylunch #healthycooking #eathealthy #eatclean #bbguk #fitfam #fitfood #fiteats #bbglondon #resolutions #getfit #tunasalad #tuna #mediteraneansalad #salad
You are strong. You are capable of anything you set your mind to. You deserve to be happy. No matter what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow today will be a good day. Live in the present and be thankful for this day you were given. Make it your own and embrace it. 💕
This #throwbackthursday is the first photo I took in 2016 when I decided to focus on my health and fitness. Little did I know it would take me a long time to find the right fit for me. I really didn’t enjoy going to the gym. I felt judged constantly. Fast forward to now. I thrive off at home workouts where I don’t feel like people are watching and judging me!
I saw a post yesterday that said “I keep trying to make a protein shake but it keeps turning out as a margarita” and I about died 🤣 — I’m not much of a drinker but I gotta admit, I’m still stuck in vacation relaxation mode! 🍹🏄🏻‍♀️ — I’m getting back on track this morning with an egg white omelette, Greek yogurt, and some blueberries 😋
