As I’m sitting here working on #Blogsgiving and looking at all the content we shot for it, I’m reminded of early twenty-something me. If you were to have told 19-24 year old me she would be posting a full body photo on the Internet, she would’ve never believed you. Twenty-something me only took photos from the waist up (helloooo myspace angles). She feared showing how big she was because she believed she did not deserve to take up space online and irl. No matter how confident she was or came across to others, I don’t think deep down she really believed she was worthy of happiness and living life.
Since I was a little chubby kid I’ve always tried to shrink myself, physically and emotionally, to make others comfortable. At the same time, I would also go above and beyond to be the best to make up for my “flaws.” It’s a constant complex head game and something I still struggle with to this day. Don’t be an inconvenience to others. Move out of people’s way. Do everything you can to be number one because you have to make up for being fat.
I honestly think I would be struggling with these thoughts even more if I didn’t start blogging. When I tell you my blogger friends changed my life, I. Mean. It. From late night group chats to commenting on each other’s posts and meeting irl, my blogger boos taught me about self-acceptance, inspired me to learn about social media marketing and pursue a creative career, and the power of collaborations and community.
The experiences I’ve had as a blogger and plus size woman brought me to this point in life. A point where I can share what I’ve learned and create inclusive spaces that encourage happiness and inspiration. All of this is to say that if you’re struggling creatively, professionally, or personally, I believe the hype squad you build at Blogsgiving next weekend will motivate you to take the next steps in your endeavors, inspire you to grow in ways you didn’t think possible, and love on you to be your most beautiful self in all facets of life. 💗

Throughout my whole life, I never had a solid group of friends.
I would make friends here and there wherever I went. Friends at school or at work, but whenever I left that job or left that class, we would just never talk again. 🤷🏼♀️
When I signed up to coach, it was simply just for the accountability in my own fitness journey. But little did I know the amazing people that I would meet. These girls that were just like me! These girls that wanted the same things as me. These girls that have become actual true friends. That even though we live all over that we continue to talk to one another every day. We know what’s going on in each other’s lives, we encourage each other when we need to be pushed, we are there for one another when things get hard. Real actual friends that simply just want the absolute BEST for each other!
Now THAT’S the people I want to surround myself with 💛

Description: Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self.
The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.
