If you really knew me, you would know that this past year and a half, I began a journey with 100 Strong and Sexy. 500+ days of Healthy Living.

If you knew me, you would know that I struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. I developed poor eating habits, and struggled to feel comfortable in my own skin. I began turning my life around after I saw how my mother struggled with her health and ultimately passed away as a result. I made some progress, however, there came I point I felt stuck. Ultimately this led to my weight slowly creeping back. Fortunately I found 100 Strong and Sexy which was what I needed to get my wellness journey back on track. Accountability. Supportive community. Beautiful women encouraging one another to meet and exceed their goals. That is exactly what I did. I have released a total of 50 lbs. I am healthier, stronger and feel more empowered to continue this wellness journey with the support of 100 Strong and Sexy. I owe so much of my success to this movement.
If you really knew me, you would know that I have been on a bad roller coaster🎢 ride that I didn’t welcome at all. It impacted me too mentally, I use to try to lose weight for someone vs myself. I lost 20 gained 35 and up and down. I began to work on myself first, have more self love 💗, work on my mindset and continue to build my relationship with God. I opened up my mind to be mentored by Jully and joined 100 Strong and Sexy eagles 🦅. 350+ days of Healthy Living has truly helped me to continue growing on my personal journey. The sisterhood, truly blessed like minded Queens, disciple was key, sticking to my personal schedule and SELF LOVE 💗. Trust me it was not an easy road, felt like climbing the highest mountains some days. But Self love, never giving up on my personal goals and working on my mindset was key 🔑 to my personal success. What I have gained above in my physical form is a result of 74.5 pounds I have released to date. I’m so much more energy and love. The only person that can hold me back is m.
If you really knew me …you would no…
I have struggled with an eating disorder – “Bulimia” for many years. My first diet started at the age of 12. I have been one alot of different diets, so many from diet pills, cleanses, counting points, starvation, an addiction to laxatives.
Ive been self-conscious how i felt and looked in outfits, would always cover up in layers. Hardly would wear shorts and swimsuits.
Since started with SAS – last April 2019, I have had a mind shift, treating each day as a new day and embracing it through spirituality, eating well (most days) and fitness. And if it’s not the best day that’s ok, i just shift back and I say it’s ok instead of putting myself down.
I’m walking tall and proud of my accomplishments. I have met so many beautiful women throughout this journey and am so grateful. I truly love all my sister eagles and pray for all of us.
Thank you Jully for your inspiration and your vision.
If you really knew me, You would know that I never had it easy. I was born in Jamaica and the district that I came from was very poor. I used to walk 1 mile back and forth each day just to get an education. On July 29th, 1992 my life changed forever; I was woken up in the wee hours of the morning taken to the airport the only thing I knew, I was going to Canada to a parade and I would come right back. As a child of course I was excited the way the story was told to me! It was all a lie. I later found out my mom sent me to my aunt to raise me because we were so poor, Talk about culture shock I was in a different country with cousins whom before that day I had never met. My aunt was never home she worked two jobs so I was often left alone with my cousins and my grandmother. In 2004 my grandmother passed away and again I felt abandoned. In December of 2018 I was introduced to 100SAS and decided to make the change from my unhealthy ways. I have lost a total of 77 lbs. My name is Monieque and “I AM THE CHANGE”🦅💪🏾💯
If you really knew me you would know that I joined SAS on August 1st 2019. I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I wanted to see a change in weight, and I needed a program that would keep me motivated and accountable. I was following 100strongandsexy on IG seeing all the very energetic women losing weight and having fun along the way. I made up in my mind that I was not going to just watch anymore. C4, I jumped in with both feet and since then I’ve released 27lbs. I treat everyday with SAS as day one! #nevergiveup #keepgoing
If you really knew me … You’d know I have spent most of my life wishing I could fit into that one thing. Wishing I could freely walk into the store and actually find my size. You’d know that I’ve tried so many different things to lose weight. And each time I was not successful. What changed for me was being transformed from within. Connecting with likeminded sisters who had common goals. Having sisters cheer me on. It’s been 100+ days, 35 released pounds later. I am more confident to workout and try new workout programs. There is no longer a fear of who is watching. I AM PERSEVERING through it all. So here’s to #100StrongandSexy, we are in this for life
If you really knew me you would know that a few years prior to my 100strongandsexy journey I was consistently betting against myself AND consistently losing. Like losing in all areas: physically, I watched weight creep upon me like it was nobody’s business and I wasn’t even concerned to make it my business. Mentally: the light wasn’t out but it was definitely dim. Financially: job loss followed by a 4 year career struggle, having to sell my home and start all over again sent my confidence reeling. I let the rollercoaster of life almost give me a TKO after 4 rounds. Fast forward to the day that I found the courage to get back into the ring and fight, to bet ON myself and make myself a priority. Five cycles of 100strongandsexy, how much do I love me? Let me count the ways. I am counting 60+ lbs released AND 400+ days of wellness powered by faith, sisterhood and self-love that IS 100strongandsexy. I am measuring the brilliance of my light and it shines bright like a diamond. Life has thrown me a few punches over the past 400+ days but I am a fighter. I am more than a conqueror. I am 100SAS4LIFE.”
If you really knew me…. you would know that my weight has fluctuated throughout the years. The negative comments about my weight since childhood have always remained with me and the inconsistency in health journey was my downfall. It took me awhile but with a shift in my mindset I threw out the negative comments and turned this journey around to do it for ME…no one else…JUST ME. To date, I have released 42lbs and with the driving support of all the women that I have met through 100 Strong and Sexy it has been a blast!!! I have my eyes set on the prize and it’s ME!!! #100SASFORLIFE #NOSTOPPINGNOW #DOINGITFORME
If you really knew me you would know that during my early years I was a bubbly, outgoing and vivacious person, but inside I struggled with low self-esteem and thoughts of not being worthy of good things. Those feelings escalated as I faced one situation of rejection after another. Eventually, I lost my MOJO… myself and my confidence, choosing to shut off from building friendships or connecting with people. This led to depression and comfort eating. In 2017, I finally make a decision to change my life and joined 100 Strong and Sexy. I didn’t know to expect, but discovered more than a fitness regime. At first, I struggle to get myself into a workout routine, but what I gained from the emotional and spiritual content of this movement helped me to transform the way I think and my perspective of what could be for me. I not only found a sisterhood of friends who encouraged, motivated, inspired and prayed with me, but I also found renewed faith and my MOJO! I am so grateful to Jully Black and all the participants
If you really knew me, you would know that I am not stranger to tragic events. These events have affected me negativity, my weight, self esteem, confidence, trust and spirituality. Everything that would make me whole was off balance
As a child I lost 2 siblings one crib death and other still born
I was a teenager when my father was killed by a drunk driver
Young adult, lost a brother who was misdiagnosed ( his lungs collapsed)
Two years later last my mom to cancer went through my divorced
Few years later cancer claimed 2 more of my brothers
I tried to be happy by going to church, parties etc. When that didn’t work I cut people off and build a wall around me. I put myself on a shelf. I 2003 I was 203 lbs. When SAS found me I was 168 lbs. The physical looked good but the mental and spiritual was lacking. I have embraced 100strongeandsexy and have released 33 lbs, gained confidence, self esteem, family, friendship, sisterhood. My spirituality has been restored. I am stronger, I am enough, I am woman, I am more than a conqueror. I live every day. SAS for life, because SAS saved by life.❤🦋
