helloooclarisse I haven't seem my Swolemate in a week, probably the longest we've been apart used to seeing him errrrday. We killed it on back tonight doeeee ! Hit some new PRs. I'm so thankful for this dude. He's been here since day one ever since I started my fitness journey and has been through the ups and downs with me - seen me at my lowest and worst, yet he has still hasn't given up on me and continues to motivate me. He knew what I was going through was something I wasn't ready to talk about and not once did he force me to tell him, let alone ask, until I was ready. That's true friendship right there. You piss me off from time to time, and I probably do the same, but I still love you to deathhhhh! I'm glad I met you and I'm glad we decided we're going to compete..now we gotta get on dat good diet shitttt #ThankfulTuesday #swolemate #lovehim #truefriendship #theywillneverunderstand #hatersgonnahate 5d

helloooclarisse Okay so here's something I'm excited about .. My booty is growing! About damn time ! I've always had a flat butt and for the past three months, I've been working my ASS (literally ) off trying to make it grow, working dem legs and glutes out twice a week, squatting ass to grass and shizzzz. I'm super excited for little progress that I am able to see. Trust the process and your journey, and believe in yourself !! Small progress is STILL progress! Results don't happen overnight, it takes time. #transformationtuesday #fitness #progress #operationbuildabooty 5d

helloooclarisse Post pancakes & fruits .. Learning to slowly love my body, and loving to eat again! My diet still needs to be tweaked with a bit, but I'm taking baby steps each and every day and that's all that matters. #motivationalmonday #foodbaby #highcarbday 2w

helloooclarisse Usually people post pictures of when they used to be fat for transformation Tuesday, but today, considering how it's a new month and last month was a rough one for me, I figured why not show people how far I've come strength wise, both physically and mentally. On the left, I was at my lowest, 98 lbs, double 0. That was towards the end of a August 2012. I hardly ate and when I did it would be like once a day, only eating crap food like frozen pizza or fast food. I would weigh myself constantly throughout the day, obsessing over the number on that scale and then I would do excessive cardio because I felt guilty for eating. The middle picture is from today and the last picture on the right was from two weeks ago after I murdered my arms . Last time I weighed myself I was at 123 lbs but I now fit into a size 1 and/or 3. I purposely haven't weighed myself recently because I don't want that number on the scale to define me. People may look at their fat pictures for motivation to continue on, but every time I'm feeling down or feel like giving up, I look back at this picture on the left, because I never want to be that skinny, weak, and unhealthy again. I'm so proud of how far I've come, regardless of the struggles I've been going through. My legs are finally growing and so it my booty! Hard work and dedication definitely pays off, and so does eating ! I just want my muscles to grow and show already, but I know it takes time. It's only been like three months and I'm proud of all the progress I've made ! Squatting deep and heavy, doing unassisted pullups, chinups, and dips, and lifting heavy (no more 5 lbs weights ! Hahahhaha)! I hope I at least inspire one person by posting this embarrassingly gross old picture of me, or at least let those out there who are struggling that they're not alone and that I've been there. Great things are about to happen and you will see me up on that stage in 2015. It might take me a while because I'm no where near where I want to be, but I will get there. Slow process is still progress ️ #transformationaltuesday #transPHORMationtuesday 3w

helloooclarisse "I need to believe that only I can chase my dreams. That only I can light the fire in me. That none can break me unless I break my self. I need to believe that I am different and I am full of love. and if I live every moment believing , then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing and the world would never cease to forget my name. I just have to believe." - @rmdrk 3w

helloooclarisse My stomach has always been my trouble spot -- like most girls. Now that I put a minor pause on training with my trainer, I've just been focused on being healthy, trying to control the obsession and addiction of working out and the bad relationship I've had with food that I've developed over the past two and a half months. I've been so consumed in trying to make weight and measurements that I was doing more damage than good, and I lost track on why I really started in the first place. I want to be happy again. I want my love for fitness to be pure again. I have no one to impress. This is for me. This is who I am and this is what i look like now. October has been such a bitch and I can't wait until November for a new month and different goals. I'm sorry for the rant, but I've been getting a lot of "are you okay?" And you know what? I may not be okay right now, but i will be. This is my journey, and I'm just a work in progress. 3w

  •   helloooclarisse Thank you girly ! You were always one of my inspirations ! I really want to compete in 2015, do you have any advice ?? @nattyfitchick1 4w
  •   nattyfitchick1 Aw dude thank you that means a lot! I'm glad I can watch you grow on this journey. Competing kinda messed me up mentally so that's why I've taken a step back to re align myself and my life. I use to love working out even before competing and it just became a huge personal battle and prep hit me soo hard it was like culture shock. You're making such great progress and aren't jumping into anything too fast so that's really good! It's a lot of food. A lot and cardio but also depend on your body and ur already killin it so prep might not be too drastic a change for u!! I'd love to talk more anytime! 4w
  •   helloooclarisse Yeah I've actually been struggling mentality, too. It's a constant battle with myself. Do you still have the same number ? @nattyfitchick1 4w
  •   nattyfitchick1 Yes I do have the same number!! Text me seriously whenever!!! 4w
