Fit, Fab & Flawless Fridays: InstaFit Women Inspiring Healthy Lives
Being fit and fine is the new black. Long gone are the stereotypes that black women are obese and more concerned with the state of their hair than their bodies and health. Daily, instagram is a testament to strong, vulnerable and triumphant women who have made the decision to share their fitness journeys with the world for the sole intention to inspire, encourage and uplift their followers and women who have had the same struggles.
Sometimes motivation in the form of talking isn’t enough. Pictures are everything and these women are being courageous and baring all in attempt to help just one not give up on their journey. Forget that one person, these ladies are encouraging thousands and should be commended not just for their personal triumphs but for setting a standard and acting as unofficial trainers and cheerleaders for others. These women should not go unnoticed for their contribution in the health movement that is moving black women to being fit and fine and healthy.
This week we’re highlighting Adriane. To be a self professed awkward nerdy girl, Adriane is showing out in the gym. This proud Christian, southern woman is sharing her weight loss journey with IG. At just 25 weeks in she has managed to lose nearly 90 pounds. She started at 299lbs and won’t stop until she reaches her goal weight of 140. Keep it up Adriane!
