Paying it Forward
Welcome to The Belle Society,
My name is Cierra, better known as, @thechicandsavvybelle via social media outlets such as Instagram and Youtube. I am the founder of The Belle Society, a virtual hangout where women are educated, embraced, and empowered in health, wellness, business, and self love.
Recently losing over 125lb with vsg, low carb eating, and regular exercise; I was able to hit the reset button on my life. A life I thought was pretty great, until realizing all I’d been limited on physically and mentally.
March 2018, I began sharing my weight loss journey on social media publicly. Sharing my highs and lows during such a vulnerable journey was not easy, but I did it LOUD and PROUD! During the course of the past year or so, I’ve been lucky enough to meet many amazing women via my social platforms. The irony, most remind me of myself from many phases of my life. Specifically the battles with weight loss, finding my purpose, and being okay with loving myself at any size phases.

I DID IT!!! I changed my life and did NOT fall off the wagon by putting everything and everyone else before me! #consistency PAYS!! . . 12 full months of #dedication and for the first time in my life, PUTTING ME first!! I have a lot of responsibilities and people who rely on me. At 32 years old, I can’t think of a time where I ever put myself first and I promised myself that in 2018 I WOULD!!! . . It’s hard being the strong friend or the head of your family because no one ever thinks of you as NEEDING help or support. This was/is me! I was the answer for everyone around me while I was slowly drowning alone. God gave me the strength to fall back and say “No” more so I could say “Yes” more to myself 😢 As a giver and natural motherly woman, this was hard, but necessary for my own personal success. 1 year later, the best gift I could have ever given to myself was ME! . . I hope this helps someone and to all the women out there wearing THE STRONG FRIEND hat, I salute you! Stay strong, it’s your power, but sprinkle that strength into yourself every now and then ✨✨❤️ . . #100Poundsdown #fitnessmotivation #blackgirlmagic #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #blackwomenarepoppin #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fattofit #healthylifestyle #vsg #wls #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #plussize #bodypositive #selflove #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #motivational #mondaymotivation #motivationalspeaker
As a naturally supportive woman, I’ve spent a vast majority of my life encouraging and motivating women in some way. It wasn’t until embarking on this personal weight loss journey, that I realized that empowering is my superpower! I believe we all possess authentic strengths, it’s just identifying, embracing, and implementing them into our lives that takes dedication.
The Belle Society is my way of embracing and implementing my superpowers to pay it forward to other women! My mission is to curate an environment for women of all walks of life to inspire and be inspired to live their best lives!
Thank you for your endless love and support! I have some amazing things coming up to set the tone and expectations for our community. Cheers to finding your superpowers in 2019!!!
