NO LONGER A DREAM

These past fews days have been quite amazing. It was just two weeks ago that I was preparing a goal-list for myself and one of my personal goals was to be able to do a "full body pushup" by Summer of next year...I made that goal so far in the distance because I was under the impression that I had to loose so much more weight before I reached it...today I am overwhelmed to announce that over this past weeks I have built from being able to do NO PUSHUPS to 10...I can't believe it either! This 228lb girl can get down on the ground and do "Regular" not "Girl-style" pushups and even in this moment, it still amazes me! I am so proud of myself...I at a place where I am pushing the limitations and minimal expectations that I have placed on myself...it's still rough but when dreams slowly creep into your reality, the walls and barriers called "impossible" begin to fade ad the line between the imaginary and reality slowly dissipates...that invisible reality if the "unknown" begins to meet with destiny and faith become the fuel and causes this fire in my heart to burn....this flame of hope that has transcended time and space and entered into my TODAY!!!...im just loving life...why? BECAUSE I CAN DO PUSH-UPS!!...ME, liana saidah sims...a 228lb girl on a journey to freedom!!!!

week 12 - VLOG....




some reflections on my way to Oakland!!!


I could cry. I am sitting here on the air plane on my way to Oakland to visit Leah and I am feeling surreal right now. I used to despise riding airplanes because of the fear that my seat belt would not fit and several times I had to ask for a seat belt extension and that process was so shameful for me. One time, I was so ashamed that I did not even ask for a seat belt and I mad the seat belt look as if I could actually wear it. That was when I was a freshman in college and we took a trip as a family to Atlanta to see my cousin graduate from college and here i am today 129lbs lighter and I am sitting comfortably on this airplane next to two other gentlemen and I don’t feel like the fat-girl infringing on someone else’s space. Yea I am still 229lbs but I feel normal. I feel like I belong here. I don’t feel like people are looking at me or judging me. I did not hesitate to sit down next to these men. I don’t feel overly self-conscious. I feel comfortable in my own skin. Man, I just feel good. I feel free. I feel liberated to just be me!

WEEK 12--- GOOD LOOKIN!!!!








SOOO I FINALLY FIT THE PANTS...I FEEL SO DANG GOOD...NO WORDS.....

I LOST 2LBS THIS WEEK SO I AM AT 229 LBS....THIS GIVES ME A 27LB LOSS FOR THE SUMMER AND 127LBS ALL TOGETHER...WHOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

week 10 - Video Vlog

WEEK 10- conquering on the daily... check out the photos!







This week I didn't lose a significant amount of weight...only a couple of ounces. However, if you look at my pictures today from even last week, you can see a significant difference. I am determined to wear those grey pants for my birthday, which is less than one month away (September 1st).

Also, check it out...people say you can't see abs under fat but I am convinced that those are my abs forming. My stomach area has not always looked like that. These pictures are motivating me to continue taking back my life. Please watch the video for more information on how my week has gone....
