She's relatively new on the IG FitSpo scene but she's recently attracted a lot of attention. TL;DR version is that she started at 500lbs and has currently lost around 95lbs naturally with eating less and moving more. Great! However, her sudden InstaFame has gone to her head and she's now doing things that other FitSpos don't do until they become more established/famous, if they do it at all.

 

Here's her recent giveaway:

I'M DOING MY FIRST GIVEAWAY (worldwide) in honor of my first 100lbs lost!!!! I will draw the lucky winners when I reach 100lbs down. That's only a handful of pounds away!!!! There will be three winners. The Grand Prize will include 1. Mind- the book Happiness From The Inside Out by Robert Mack which I will order and sign for you before sending it your way 2. Body- celebrity trainer @XXX will provide 3 months (90 Days) of free, personalized, online fitness training like he does with me when we aren't together  3. Soul- a Skype or FaceTime session with ME to discuss anything you'd like about your journey and/or my journey. I want to be able to help you get to the point of believing you are worthy of a happy and healthy life!!  2nd winner will receive their choice of two of these prizes. 3rd winner will receive their choice of 1 of them. The rules (MUST COMPLETE ALL 4 RULES OR YOU WILL NOT QUALIFY!): 1. Comment on this post, one thing you love about yourself and one thing you love about two other people and tag them 2. Create a post and TAG ME in it about how you encompass Mind, Body, and Soul on your own journey, or how you are working toward embracing them AND 3. Use the hashtag #stasia2point0loses100mindbodysoulgiveaway on the post you created (it's how I get your names for the drawing so leave it up until the winner is announced) 4. Follow me @stasia2point0 and @XXX (for hooking us up with his time and love). He's the best!!! "Always remember that it must start in our minds, and move to our hearts, before it can be reflected in our bodies. You have to want it, then believe it, then work hard to achieve it. Mind. Body. Soul." -stasia2point0

Yesterday her computer broke and she also can't pay her rent for the month. Oh and did she mention that she doesn't have money for groceries this week?

But even worse than all this is that Stasia will be unable to upload videos to her YT account to inspire us and help us on our journey. So #Humble. So #Inspiring.

My hard drive just crashed. It did this about a year ago. I finally got the hard drive replaced about 3 months ago and it is doing EXACTLY what it did before. In seriously crying so hard right now. The initial shock is over and in just in tears. I don't have an external hard drive. I knew I needed one for my journey especially after I just lost the last 10 years of videos and pictures a year ago. I just didn't think this was a possibility so soon after getting a new one. And it's not under warranty. I ordered the part and a computer dude friend put it in. I am absolutely devastated right now. I can't afford a new computer. I can't afford a new hard drive or external one, or a repair guy. Hell… I can't even afford to pay rent right now… It's moments like this that make me so flipping bummed out. But I KNOW it's not the end of the world. Rent can be late. They can't kick me out for one month lol. Computers are things, not people. I'm not hurts, I'm still here, it's just things. I've shared enough of social media that I should be able to save images from those and clips of vids. So it's not terrible. I'm just totes magoats frustrated right now. My friend @XXX has taught me that when something gets you down, you are allowed to set a timer for an hour or two. Grieve, cry, feel depressed, scream, have all the yucky emotions, and when that timer goes off, you move on. I'm going to give that a whirl right now. I like to sleep when I'm feeling frustrated and full of tears so I'm just going to take a nap for a couple hours and wake up when my timer goes off and feel like I can move on. And figure life out in 120 minutes. Lol. But in this moment, I'm letting myself be upset. Because I'm not a superhero. I'm human. And sometimes crappy things happen. And a side note, it looks like I'm going to have to figure out something else with YouTube. I'll still try and do an introductory video from my phone and upload it from here tonight. #JUSTBREATHE!!!! #nobodyishurt #itsjustathing #preparenextime #dontbuythecheapestcomputer #ugh #lol

https://instagram.com/p/3ZsQuGmiGS/

THANK YOU, GUYS!!!! I just posted about how my computer crashed a few hours ago and I completely lost everything, just like I did a year ago. 10 years worth of pics and vids. And this time it hit hard because it was my entire journey. And you guys totally talked me out of being bummed. I allowed myself to feel ALL the feels for two hours, then I bucked up, put REAL makeup on, which was super fun because I never do anymore, and made myself presentable for a video. Haha. I need a computer. Yes. But I don't need it to survive. I need one that isn't going to crash on me every few months, that's the trick . But I realized I have to live in the NOW!! And right NOW I can feel pretty, look to you guys for inspiration, and still upload a video to YouTube from my phone. One day I will have a great job and be able to pay rent on time, not worry about electricity being turned off, have a car that has proper locks and windows that doesn't get broken into and broken down all the time. Hahaha! I will have a computer that doesn't crap out and make me lose everything I have worked so hard to document. I will be able to support myself better than what I'm doing now. And by putting that out in the universe, and being positive about it, and believing it WILL happen, makes me feel comfort in knowing there are bigger and better things for me in the world. Right now I am working on my inner happiness. And one day my financial happiness will match. One day! When I moved out of Oregon and got my own place, I definitely expected it to be hard financially, but never as hard as it has proved to be. But this is temporary. Just like being 500lbs was temporary. I am only 29, and I know I will figure out how to be an adult soon. Hahaha. People have been suggesting I set up a gofundme account for a computer. I feel silly doing that, but if you HONESTLY want to contribute to helping me get on my feet with a computer, I do have a paypal account linked to my email address in my bio. And I would be eternally grateful!!! If you do, please send your address so I can send you a thank you card!!! Just putting that out in the universe.  I love you guys! #thisistemporary #liveinthenow

M about 8 hours ago @stasia2point0 I have been following you for months and am so amazed by your drive and courage to do this! I even got a few of my friends to follow you because you are very motivating. You have been blessed with such supportive followers that care about you and give things to help your journey be successful. But I don't feel it's right that you ask for money for things recently. You have had some extreme things happen and then suffer financial hardship. I understand people wanting to help and support but you really don't need a laptop that bad. The rest of us would just deal with it instead of directing people to a Paypal account. IJS. Keep up the journey!!

stasia2point0 about 7 hours ago @M I didn't want to! My followers were the ones encouraging me to do it. Saying that they would contribute if I did. It is their choice to want to help someone who needs help. And many have good reason saying that I help them so much, and they would LOVE to help me in return with what they can. I don't feel wrong about it when they put it that way. I have to survive. I don't appreciate you calling me out on that. If you don't feel like helping that is perfectly fine!! But there is absolutely no need to make me feel guilty about it. I already waited 30 minutes, and erased and rewrote a ton of times before hitting send. I don't like to ask for help. And when my own family doesn't help, and others want to, it's important to ask for help when it's needed. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. You have the right and freedom to u follow me at any time.

T 11 minutes ago Im sorry but this must be said! It is so wrong of u to use these kind people for financial gain. How dare you. You should really be ashamed of yourself. A gofund me account because ur computer crashed? Really? We all have financial troubles at some point and I understand that. But the fact that you are using this account to gain finances is really sad and wrong on so many levels and this isn't the first time ypu have been on here asking for money smh just sad I am going to pray for you! You really need help in more ways than one.

I TRIED!!! You guys! I am SO SO SO SO SORRY!!!! I really really really wanted to get a YouTube channel up and running for you today!!! I ran out of space while recording. I deleted my pics, my apps, my blippity bloppity everything I could to have enough space. And it totes would have worked if my computer didn't crash. I could have transferred the video to that. And then deleted it, then recorded again. Soooooo. I feel a wee bit defeated tonight. Today was NOT the day to have my hard drive on my computer crash.  at all… You know how when life is going really really well, and then the universe tries to knock you off course?? That breezy is working REALLY REALLY hard to knock me off course this week!!!!! Like, REALLY HARD!!! Some really cool "weight loss journey" plans fell through that I thought were going to happen for the last month and a half. My finances took a surprising turn and I haven't even been able to get food this week. My computer crapped out and crashed. It's like something is trying to keep me from being successful!! And then someone sent me the most awesome audiobook!!! And it talks about how the uninverse (or God, or whatever it may be) does that to test you. To see how strong you are, to see how committed you are. Well guess what Uni!? (That's her new name, we've had a long talk today and I can call her that now) GUESS WHAT UNI?!?! You're not bringing me down!! THIS IS TEMPORARY!! And even though I can't bring you guys a YouTube channel tonight like I promised, I will soon. As soon as I have a working computer, I will be able to get that going for you. I seriously just want to be able to help you guys as much as possible. Being able to help inspire you has given me such a HUGE purpose in life and in this world. And I want to be able to do that for you. I just don't know when yet. And I'm so so sorry to have let you guys down who were hoping it would be up today. It's now almost midnight. I've been trying to figure out a way to get it up for you all evening. And it's just not an option today. The cool thing though? Is that tomorrow is a new day. And I can try to figure out what to do about it then.

Now why would Stasia think it was a good idea to hit up her followers for cash? Because she’s successfully done it before.

 

Taking out the garbage use to be a chore, now it's an AWESOME reminder of how much I am loved!! Thank you guys SO much for all of your love. The feeling of swinging by the office to check for packages and them bringing out a box from the back is always the most fun surprise ever!!! Thank you cards are coming!! I finally got stamps  I need to get myself some retune address labels and cooler stamps though. I'll be on the hunt for some cooler ones soon. I'm almost out already.  lol. Thank you, thank you, thank you! To every person who has ever sent me a card, a gift, a magnet, new and second hand clothes and shoes, personalized shirts, gift cards, care packages, jewelry, a drawing from your kiddo (you know who you are! ), kitchen utensils, clean and/or organic foods, my gym membership(!!!!!), money for groceries, sunblock for all of the time I spend in the sun, all of it!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!! I will never be able to say it enough!!! You guys have completely changed my life. And I don't know what I'd do without you! Several years ago, I read The 5 Love Languages, and I never wanted to admit it, but I totally fell in the category of feeling the most loved when I received a gift. It doesn't matter how seemingly small or large the gift may be, just the thought that someone has taken time out of their day to think of me in a special way, makes me feel the most loved. I was embarrassed to learn that about myself but I realized it wasn't a bad thing. That's how my dad showed us he loves us. We didn't spend tons of bonding time together, but he would randomly leave notes on the counter with flowers, or something cute from his business trip, or candy (fat kids favorite haha) and it just made me feel like he loved me because he thought about me, even when I thought he didn't care all the time. He did. He always had ways to show it in that way. Everyone shows and receives love differently, and looking back, although he wasn't terribly nurturing, he did the best he could as a single dad, and he showed us he loved us in lots of other ways. Awe!! Now I miss my dad!! My point is, you guys are effing incredible am I am more thankful for you, than you know.

Grift much, Stasia?

Does she have any sort of a job? I'd peek through her IG but seeing eleventy-million photos of her with green smoothie smeared on her upper lip made me want to puke

And WTF with her "celebrity" trainer? He seems like a decent enough guy but when I think celebrity trainer, I think Bob Greene, Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, Gunner Peterson, Tracy Anderson, Jackie Warner… You know, people who have book deals with major publishers, DVDs, TV shows, etc.

Ok, I'm all for eating organic if that's your desire, but if you can't pay your bills maybe it's time to cut back and eat the slummy #omgpoisonous gmo, CHEAPER veggies like the rest of us. and perhaps looking into a second job, or a better, higher paying single job. I would sooner die than post my financial woes for everyone to see. #sendmefreeshit others-221

Here's a bit more on her #Struggles, gifts and finances.

 

11/14/14

Started her IG account

Hitting up people for grocery money, with a comment about those who get assistance

The struggle is real!!! Hahahah and can you believe it?? My apartments gave me a coupon for a free pizza today!! But I am not going to do it. I threw it away. I'm not risking binging on a pizza. This #weightloss journey is all about overcoming obstacles. And right now, this kitchen situation is an obstacle. And nothing more. It's not a bad thing, it's just an uncomfortable situation. I've been creative! I have some light english muffins up there so I've been eating those. I finished my bananas today. OH!!! I also found 4 Granny Smith apples in the fridge drawer!! They were too icky to eat raw so I chopped them up and am making applesauce out of them. I am really looking forward to having money again to eat. This move, although it has been the very best thing I have ever done for myself, was very expensive and I'm just playing catch up. Soon these cupboards and fridge will be looking beautiful!! Hahaha. This is when assistance would come in handy. For the average single girl, living alone, working full time, trying to be healthy, having a hard time keeping food in the fridge. Yet the ones who would like to not work, have four roommates to feed them, and choose to spend money on soda and Funyuns are the people who get government assistance for food. Someone PLEASE tell me how that makes sense?!

stasia2point0 6 months ago @T haha! The camping icon is great! I've eaten MUCH better while camping. Haha. @L it's a scary situation when you are experiencing it first hand. I had EBT (food stamps) years ago when I was in between jobs. And I remember making that stuff last as long as possible. And it really was easier to buy budget processed garbage and make that stretch over the month.
stasia2point0 6 months ago @R Hahahaha! Hell yes it's survival mode! Lol. And actually no, I don't know anyone in my new town. Lol. I literally found this town on a map and said, I will move there. So nobody with food stamps ;) lol. However, the world works in miraculous ways. And I was selflessly donated money from the most compassionate stranger, to get groceries. Instagram is amazing. The level of emotional support that you guys have shown me blows my mind every single day!

The cupboards are no longer bare

Christmas miracles are REAL!!!! One of my incredible followers (who wishes not to be mentioned) has selflessly and generously bought me groceries!!!! I am beyond moved by this woman's generosity and compassion. I have never met her before. She lives in a different time zone! This is such a huge reminder that people are genuinely kind. I will honestly never forget this for the rest of my life. And the picture doesn't even do it justice. I had 12 bags of groceries!!!!! I will be prepping later today. I literally spent every penny and budgeted well. I am on cloud nine. I cannot wait for the perfect opportunity for me to pay it forward. Thank you. I am eternally grateful for your compassion and generosity. I'm crying again!!! Merry Christmas, lovies!!! Be kind to each other. :)

Asking for someone to donate a logo design for her

Hi guys!!! I am on the hunt for a logo!! If you are artistically inclined on paper or a computer I would love your logo ideas! I would love to have a logo for IG and potentially YouTube. This would be a logo donation. No money would be exchanged. Just love and appreciation. :) I am truly open to any ideas and designs. I may even turn this into something fun. ;) you guys can vote on the top three or something. It's just an initial thought for now. But help a girl out! A digital one or hand drawn one would be equally loved. As long as it fits a square. It can be stasia2point0 or 2.0 or anything that gets my IG name in there some how. Much love!! I hope I get some responses. :)

Someone sent her a Polar FT4 (Around $55 retail)

Is this real life?!?!?!?! My follower and friend @X sent me the most incredible gift!!!!! I am SO motivated to use this and show you that your gift is getting great use!!! I am SO effing excited right now!!!! I am so glad that I started this account and met you! You're such a beautiful woman inside and out! And I LOOOOOVE THE GREEN!!!! I am so thrilled on every level. I literally cancelled my date tonight because I want to go work out and give this thing a go. Hahaha. He's a hot dude, don't get me wrong, but it's not going anywhere. My health and fitness comes first. @X I seriously cannot thank you enough. You KNOW that activity is my biggest struggle. I am so moved by this. I am now officially in the Polar Club!!! Woohoo!!! It's tight as hell. It's on the second to last notch. I was really worried it wouldn't fit at all. So I'm stoked that they make these bad boys large enough for people who actually have big wrists. Hannah, I want to give you the hugest hug!! The kind where you put your feet up and I spin you around. Hahaha. Love you girl!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Car went into the shop but now cannot afford gas after paying for repairs

[in the comments]

However it ended up being more than I had planned for and now my car is on empty. Hahahaha. I think I can drive a couple days on empty and not run out of gas. I don't want to miss the gym!

Received more gifts including new shoes. Stasia manages to slip in that she was abandoned by her mom in the thank you post

THANK YOU!!!!!!! What an incredible day!!! I didn't go to the pool this morning because I REALLY needed to sleep in. And I'm glad that I did. I weighed and I'm down another pound! 52lbs!!!! AND!!!!!!! I received TWO PACKAGES from you guys!!!!!!!! Now I have more shoes than I will ever need! I'm so freaking excited!!! I told the woman who sent me the care package that this must be what it feels like to have a mom. (I have one but she chose to not be a part of my life since I was a toddler and we don't have contact now) I could feel how much care and thought she put into the package. She even made me recipe cards with the weight watchers points on them!!!! I am beyond grateful and thankful! Honestly. I won't ever be able to express that enough. You guys keep me going. I don't feel like I deserve this kind of support. At all! I cannot wait to go to the gym tonight!! I don't know which shoes to wear!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

More gifts

I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE ABLE TO THANK ALL OF YOU, ENOUGH!!!! THANK YOU KIMMY!!!! I posted the whole video on my Facebook at facebook.com/stasia2point0. When I receive surprise gifts, or cards, or gifts your told me you were sending, or clothes, or care packages, from you guys, it does something to me that I can't even explain. And it's not even about the gift itself!! It's about the TIME AND THOUGHT that my friends and complete strangers put into something for ME!!! Me!!?? The person I didn't think mattered to anyone in the world, for so much of my life. Me. I am learning every day to wrap my head around how different my life is now. All because I CHOSE to be happy. It seems so simple. And it truly is. It takes so much work but the concept is so, so simple. And some how, I have received SO much love from all of you. You will never understand what it truly means to me. To know that you have gone out of your way for stamps, picked out a PERFECT card!!! (Somehow they are always exactly what I needed to read!) go through the process of shopping for something, or rummaging your closet (love me some hand-me-downs) lol, put care and planning into what you're sending, then get to the post office to mail it. That takes SO much thought and effort!! For me??!

The coolest part about having your car broken into and your stereo stolen?!?! Seeing an officer lift fingerprints!!!! Okay okay. It wasn't as exciting as Dexter or CSI. But it was legit super entertaining. And we had a great laugh about what a fantastic criminal my thief was!! There was a CLEAR fresh handprint on my window that was much smaller than mine so it was obviously the criminal's, and the stereo was literally just unplugged and stolen. Nothing else was taken. Nothing was broken. Sweetest thief on earth!! I'm joking but I'm seriously being for real. Nice guy!! If he was a doucher, he would have been malicious and trashed my car, stolen everything, and used gloves and gone without a trace. Hahaha. He just gave me a good reason to get a new stereo. Now to just wait for pay day.

Suffered a concussion

I've never had a concussion. Let me rephrase. I had never had one until today. It's very minor but a concussion nonetheless. The whole thing is embarrassing actually. A metal accordion style door crashed down on my head while I was bent over. So u didn't even see it coming. It felt like someone came from behind me and hit me in the side of the head with a bat. It took me a minute to realize what had happened. I'm fine!! I've been checked out and was told to take it easy for a few days. My head hurts badly but it's not like a migraine pain (thank god). I just feel really weird, like I've been drinking. I was in the phone with my sister and I couldn't get my thoughts out of my mouths correctly. The world is just a bit hazy. And it's taking a lot of concentration just to write this

She's also constantly trying to get new hashtags to go viral. One she recently did was #30DayActivityChallenge. IIRC she was active about 15 of those days with a variety of excuses like being sick, blindness from migraines (really), doing laundry, etc. She was so stricken by her migraine blindness she could barely see to write the IG update about it…drool

I follow Stasia, she seems very sweet, but I do think she's using her Insta fame as much as possible… Maybe I don't blame her? Not sure.

She works from home booking holidays at resorts. She's written about it before, she relocated from Oregon to Arizona to get away from a shitty situation and to be closer to her sister and her sister's kids in California. Her job wouldn't let her move to California for tax purposes so Yuma was as close as she could get.

What I admire about Stasia is that she seems to be doing things the right away. She did 6 months of therapy before she ever started trying to lose weight, and she is losing weight through whole foods and exercise.

Gah, I can't with the #teamgreenstache shit. 

Honestly, she seems pretty shady to me. I think it's great she's lost a lot of weight (better than others, coughJessAnnacough) but I can't imagine ever asking for free stuff like that.

I really don't get this whole thing of asking for personal help with things like groceries on IG.  I realize that government services are not perfect, BUT…if you are consistently so broke you can't buy groceries (as seems to be the case), shouldn't you be eligible for some kind of SNAP supplement?  I'm pretty sure in most states you can be eligible for SNAP even while working, as long as your income is below a certain level. If she really is in a short-term temporary situation where she needs to get back on her feet from a move and maybe get her health more on track before looking for a different job (I am guessing weighing 400 lbs might make working outside the home challenging), that seems like exactly the sort of situation where applying for SNAP would be a great idea.  Call me crazy, but I would rather use a service that's intended to help than grift on Instagram–much less sketchy and you don't have to write Uncle Sam an over-the-top thank you IG in exchange for the assistance (plus, assuming you have worked in the past or will work in the future, you are totally earning that assistance!).

I'm with Bacon of Health. When the broken laptop posts complete with directly asking for money popped up yesterday that was when my opinion moved from "annoying but harmless" towards "low-level grifter". Then I started going back on her IG and saw more and more subtle and outright begging coupled with constant poor financial decisions.

 

nonamesplease what I'm not getting is that for the past 7 months she seems to have had constant money and car troubles, yet she took 3 trips to San Diego in 3 months, bought a new FitBit and spent the last of her money one week on Quest Bars. I don't think she should be living on ramen and using the sun as her reading lamp, but you also don't need to be having a week of avocado and kale smoothies if you can't consistently come up with gas money. Especially when you work from home and your driving appears to be limited to the gym and grocery store. Perhaps she needs to start selling off all the gifts she's getting? She could use her FB and IG to sell off any gifts she doesn't want but that might impact the level of future gifts.

 

Maybe I was just raised differently but if I couldn't afford groceries I'd be looking for a second job/better job, putting stuff on CL/eBay or pawning stuff, not posting sadfaced pics on IG asking for money. And I definitely wouldn't be taking 3 vacations starting less than 2 months after I was begging for groceries on IG.

Right now I'm not sure if she's so dysfunctional that she can't grasp the concept of a budget (like JessAnna) or she's using IG to grift off suckers.

 

She's apparently been driving her decade old car with 270k+ miles on it when she goes on trips to San Diego, so I predict an emergency breakdown in BFE with Stasia begging for cash for a tire/radiator/tank of gas in the near future.

Well this just happened. Jokes on them. It was a crappy stereo. But DANGIT!!!!!!! My car is on its last leg. I have around 270,000 miles on it… Not entirely positive how many. My speedometer has been broken for over a decade. Lol. And the radio was the one thing that made me happy while driving this junker. Whammy. The worst part is not going be to able to listen to music on the long drives to San Diego to see my niece and nephew!! It still gets me to the gym though! And most importantly it still gets me to see those kiddos in SD that were the whole reason I saved my life. It could have been worse. They could have stolen my whole car!! (Which happened to this car about 7 years ago lol. It was found four months later in a town 3.5 hours away. The silver lining in that incident was that it forced me to learn how to drive a stick shift while I was saving to find another car.) Haha. AND… It's still better than driving a horse and buggy, right?!

Of course she's had a previous car stolen from her, I would expect nothing less.

I'm about to wk

 

She didn't buy the Fitbit, a friend (like a real life friend) bought it for her. And I wouldn't call her trips to California vacations. She moved to Yuma specifically to be as close as possible to her niece and nephew, so I'm sure finding the gas money to go see them is going to be a top priority. It sounds like this is the first time she's lived on her own so it's not surprising her finances might be tight, especially if she has a commission based job.

I'm not willing to call her a grifter just yet! Remember she's currently over 400 pounds and works very odd hours at her current job, out of home employment would be tough for her. Less than a year ago she was finding it hard to shower!

I think she's someone who has a lot of followers who are offering to help and she's in bad circumstances and is accepting some of that help… Time will tell. I did look sideways at her PayPal comment, but then if she's desperate, maybe she can't see another way to survive. I don't know.
