Hello again Loves! This blog is about getting real and talking about some of my insecurities with you all featuring this cute outfit from Charlotte Russe Plus.
As I told you before, I have always been overweight but as of today I am at my heaviest weight ever, when I first moved to USA I was 18 years old 5.3" and 179 pounds. I got depressed because It was a big change for me and my family, I lived in the Dominican Republic for 18 years and all of a sudden I had to move in a very decisive point of my life, I was attending college to be a Dentist, I had my friends, my church, other part of the family and boyfriend at the time which is now my husband. Within a year period I gained 60 pounds and since my eating habits changed plus being homesick I lost a good amount of hair and it became shorter and thinner.
It was very hard for me to watch my weight since I can gain pounds like nothing. My dads side of the family tends to be overweight so I might have gotten those genes and I think that is why I can gain so much weight in shorts periods of time because at the time I have not been told I have any health condition that makes me gain weight so easy and also I am not someone who likes to workout either.
I have always been trying new diets going to
dietitians, working out and I am not going to lie I do lose weight but as soon I stop, I gain the weight back. I haven't found a method that works for me and that I can stick to yet, I am still trying to find it and while I do it I am just trying to love me as I look until I get back to where I want to be which is back to my previous weight from before I moved here.
It is hard to feel comfortable when you gain so much weight because as of right now I am almost 100 pounds heavier than 6 years ago and even tho I am well proportioned like I said before I am in my heaviest weight so far so I am dealing with more fat in places I didn't had before.
I feel very lucky to live where I am now because somehow I dont feel the pressure for being overweight and that I am able to wear nice pieces of clothes from a good variety amount of stores like Charlotte Russe Plus, yes they made it again in my blog!
I got this black bodysuit on sale a couple weeks ago, bodysuits are on trend right now no matter what size you wear, you will be able to find the one for you. This is a non sleeves bodysuit, I am not the most comfortable wearing non sleeves since I always had bigger arms but hey! it is spring time and I am letting them be free.
I dont want you guys to have the wrong idea I am not saying that being overweight is bad or good but being skinny wont guarantee you the happiness you might be looking for, I just want to be real and tell you that even tho I like to take share body positivity on social media encouraging to love yourself doesn't mean that I am not insecure or that my life is perfect, I just want all of us to love the skin we are in! that is my goal.
I paired my outfit with this amazing pair of jeans from Charlotte Russe Plus also OMG! let me tell you this are the most perfect jeans I own so far, they have just enough stretching on the waist and they fit like leggings in the bottom, you have no idea how much I have been looking for a pair of jeans like this and I am so happy I got them!!!! Big thanks to CR.
I just rapped around my waist this denim shirt from old navy that I got a couple years ago to give it a more stylish look. My sandals are from Forever 21 along with my earrings, cutest pair ever. My black bag is from Payless and my sunglasses are from a online company called Hashtag Sunglasses! I will link their website down below so you can check them out they have really nice sunglasses.
