I found Armpocket, because I wanted an armband that fit my arm comfortably while I worked out. Being plus size, I continuously struggle to find products that work for me.
I have always had a hard time with my weight, but I reached my highest weight 2 years ago when I hit 300 pounds. After that, I knew enough was enough, and I began my weight loss journey. Now, I can proudly say that I have lost 90 pounds and am still going down in size. To help me lose weight, I have begun seeing a personal trainer 3 times a week, doing yoga weekly, and go to boxing classes. I also try to walk/run as much as I can when the weather is nice. It's definitely been hard, but seeing results makes it worth it.
My favorite part of my journey has been my overall increase in self-confidence. Believe it or not, I used to be embarrassed to work out in front of people. Specifically, I used to be embarrassed to go running! It didn't help that it seemed like most companies didn't make products for plus size people to workout with. That is until I found Armpocket. Now, I have the confidence to flaunt my hard work. I have begun to embrace my body and, in turn, that has led to an increase in self-love. This whole experience has been quite empowering.
My twin and I started an Instagram to help others who are also on a similar journey. We want to recognize that all shapes and sizes are beautiful and that anything is possible when you put in the effort.
