Instagram Hashtag Trendsation: #WeightLossJourney

It's so amazing that social media has the ability to bring out the positivity in people -- body positivity that is.

If you have yet to see the hashtag #ThighReading trending on twitter, go take a look for yourself. Instagram decided to jump onto the body positivity train with over four million photos under the hashtag #WeightLossJourney. How exciting is that? People broadcasting their journey of losing weight in hopes of inspiring someone else to do the same.
As a young woman who has also gone through a huge weight loss journey, I know how scary it can be to post a before and after picture of yourself. The fact that you're revealing who you once were accompanied by who you are now can be extremely intimidating and sometimes even embarrassing, especially when you don't know the outcome.
I started my weight loss journey in February 2014, not really taking myself serious. I knew I wanted a change, but I wasn't sure how or when to start. The beginning of March I took it upon myself to try going meatless for the month of March. During this month I consumed green smoothies that I would drink throughout the day. I soon added in daily workouts at the gym and before I knew it March was long gone.
I was extremely proud that I completed a challenge and decided to go ahead and commit to being meatless. I officially began my vegetarian journey in April of 2014. During this time I couldn't tell I was losing weight, but everyone else around me seemed to notice and it felt good.
I wasn't used to the spotlight being on me, at least not for a positive reason. It took me a long time to break out of my low self-esteem shell and it wasn't long before I turned to self love. What was this amazing feeling I had been missing all along? It felt amazing. I was doing something positive for myself and the outcome was just as beautiful.
I wish I had known years before that eating healthy and focusing on a healthy lifestyle in general felt so amazing. By February of 2015 I had officially lost a little over 100 POUNDS the natural way and I was extremely proud of myself because a lot of people turn to diets and surgeries to lose what I lost.
I can't say it was easy, but I also can't say it was hard. It takes determination and self control. Although I've lost my balance a time or two, I've maintained my weight and I am in the process of trying to lose another twenty pounds within the next few months. I commend anyone who has the guts to post their journey and spread the word on what challenges they faced.
Thanks to social media people all over are getting the opportunity to speak out and potentially save lives. It's never too late to make a change. No one can force you to want to begin a journey, at the end of the day it's up to you.

상대방을 내편으로 만드는 대화의 기술
1. 호감을 높이려면 “알고 계실 테지만”을 써라. 상대를 한 단계 위로 본다는 느낌을 주어 상대방의 자존심을 세워준다. 2. 숨도 안 쉬고 말하는 사람에겐 행동으로 대답하라. “잠깐만, 진정해” 같은 직접적인 말보다 기침, 큰 동작으로 자세 바꾸기 등 주위를 환기하는 행동을 하면, 말이 느려진다. 3. 내 실수를 꼬집어 주는 사람을 칭찬해라. “맞는 말이야, 역시 예리해” 라고 인정하고 칭찬해주면 공격하려 했던 상대방의 에너지를 흡수할 수 있다. 4. 의견을 듣고 싶다면 그윽하게 바라보라. 긴장해서 말을 잘 못하는 사람이 있다면, 시선으로 메시지를 보내는 것이 효과적이다. 발언을 요구하는 부드러운 행동이다. 5. 흥분한 상사 앞에서는 목소리를 차분하게 하라. 사람은 무의식 중에 상대방 목소리 톤을 따라간다. 똑같은 방식으로, 당신이 목소리를 낮추면 상대방도 격앙된 기분을 진정시킬 수 있다. 6. “아니면”이라고 말하면 상대는 내 의견을 따른다. “햄버거 괜찮으세요? 아니면 감자튀김 세트는 어떠세요?” 실제로 이 간단한 차이에 판매량이 급증했다고 한다. 7. 장단점을 말할 때는 장점을 뒤에 말한다. “좋은 사람인데 조금 어두운 면이 있어” “조금 어두운 구석이 있지만 좋은 사람이야” 사람은 마지막에 들은 말을 기억한다.
What Has BTS Taught You
Hello fam! I can across this cool edit. These are not my own, but I wanted to share. @VeronicaArtino and I were having a conversation about " why we look up to BTS or what we have learned from them." These edits definitely sum up what I have learned from BTS. Honestly my key things are you are never too young to be wise. Love myself and loving myself is not selfish. Love those who support you and even your haters. You reap what you sow. If you plant seeds of success and water them with hard work and dedication you will get what you deserve. Focus on being the best version of myself, screw comparing myself to others. COMMENT BELOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM BTS!
