Weight loss and gain are not easy topics of discussion. Dozens of factors contribute to making a body the way it is, and some seem to have an easier time than others when it comes to staying fit and healthy.
There aren’t many women who would say they are “happy” with their weight, and it doesn’t help that we have airbrushed models of perfection at every turn on magazine covers, TV shows, and online. So it’s not surprising that it has become pretty common to create online accounts if you love fitness and exercise.
Many of the Instagram accounts for fitness gurus are designed by people who look pretty flawless. It can be intimidating to compare yourself to them, and sometimes you wonder if they’re really that fantastic looking all the time.
If you’ve had kids or have been very overweight, that adds another dimension to weight loss difficulties. So one mom is following the trend of keeping an Instagram account for her weight loss journey, but with a twist.

Graham has a noble goal: to become healthier and love herself more as she perseveres. It’s one thing to accept who you are and let it stop there, it’s another to accept who you are and use that confidence and understanding to help you better yourself even more.
“The anxiety posting this is REAL,” she wrote. “High waisted bottoms have become my bff. Do I regret losing weight…NEVER. Not even a slightest thought. I am more FIT than I’ve ever been in my entire life. Happier. HEALTHIER. I’d be lying if I said my loose skin wasn’t an insecurity of mine.. But I refuse to let it consume me.”
