“A girl should be two things: Classy and Fabulous.” --Coco Chanel

By Far one of my favorite Quotes of all time by Coco Chanel. I truly believe women should take care of themselves both inside and out. Women these days feel like there is no turning back, as if its too late to change. I say Yes You CAN! About a year ago, I was about 30 pounds heavier than I am today. I'm so happy to say that I have never felt any better about myself. Even though when I was heavier, I still felt beautiful and loved ALL of me, mostly because I knew my value as a person and I knew that I was able to bring smiles to all who came my way alhamdulillah. Now that I am more active socially, religiously and physically, No ONE can stop me. Here are a few pics of me before and the new and improved Yaz. Don't Ever let anyone tell you that you can't do it because they are WRONG. Everyday is a blessing and I think we should all cherish and take advantage of the time we have left on this earth, not only to please ourselves, but also to please the one and only ALLAH swt!

  16. Mashallah you're so courageous for putting up before and after photos even though you were just as gorgeous then. One thing I am curious about is did you wear different type of clothes too when you were overweight? As a chubby hijabi I feel as if I can't wear dresses over shirts because it shows the shape of my body too much. I'm glad you stated that you were okay with how you looked before as I am too but I would like to lose weight so I can be a more modest hijabi.

  32. You shoud be ashamed of yourself...the hijab doesn't fit here at all... Hijab is not only a piece of material on the head. It's the way You behave what you show. And this is not hijab definatley... why not wear a bikini and a hijab, and strike a playboy pose with beer or vodka coz what you are doing right now is just the same... this is some bizzare innovation...miami has You captured :( I feel so sorry for you sis. Maybe one day... hopefully You will understand what Hijab is...

  35. MashAllah, what a beautiful change! (: You're so pretty, but how did you lose the weight and what did you eat and your excercise routine?! Please tell us! I'm not overweight, but if I don't start exercising this year, I won't be proud of my weight lol. Please share!

  36. the dresses are Ok but the black outfit in the last photo is too revealing, remember that hijab is not only about hair covering but also trying to hide the figure. You would not like some hijabi or "wanna be" hijabi to follow this and wear the hijab in a wrong way ! When you influence someone in doing a good thing you have a part of the hassanat each times he/she is doing that thing, the same applies when someone imitates you in a bad thing . sorry for my english I'm a french speaker ! thanks !
