While there are many benefits to social media, are you guarding your mental space? . If you catch yourself feeling a little down or self-conscious or short-tempered after scrolling through IG, you’re experiencing the most natural response in the world! As Lexie (@beauty_redefined co-director) discusses here, be careful what you’re viewing, who you follow, and how much time you spend on social media. It’s so easy to let a visual, idealized platform like IG cause you to feel like your looks are the most important thing about you. You exist to do a lot more than be seen, and feeling like your looks define you is a surefire way to feel TERRIBLE about yourself and sit on the sidelines of your life until you “fix” your “flaws.” You’ve got work to do, and your looks have nothing to do with it. You are more than a body. See more in your social media use, yourself and everyone else, and then let’s BE more! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #beautyredefined #morethanabody #seemorebemore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎥 @beautyredefined . . . . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bodyacceptance #beyondadresssize #badspodcast #bads #bodykindness #morethanabody #bodyimagemovement #haes #healthnotdiets #healthpodcast #womenwhopodcast #podcastforwomen #spiritled #forhisglory #graceupongrace #higherpurpose #womeninministry #antidiet #worthoverweight #bodyliberation #intuitiveeater #intuitivemovement #selfcareishealthcare #mentalhealthadvocate #gratitudeattitude #nocaloriecounting #nondietapproach

Lesbian relationships do not exist to please cishet men sexual fantasies. • Les relations lesbiennes sont constamment sexualisées pour satisfaire les regards masculins. Elles sont normées et stéréotypées selon des concepts hétérosexuels et patriarcaux. Tout ça témoigne d'une misogynie systémique, mais aussi de lesbophobie, qui sont toujours banalisées. Par exemple, la pornographie mainstream et gratuite sur le net est créée pour les hommes. Tout le contenu lesbien n’est conçu que pour combler leurs fantasmes. Il faut cesser de présenter les personnes lesbiennes et leurs corps comme étant des sources de satisfaction. Il faut arrêter de vouloir standardiser leurs relations et leurs vies entières selon des schémas hétéros. Parce que non, il n’y a pas une lesbienne qui est « l’homme » de la relation, et l’autre « la femme ». Cette pression pour qu’il y ait reproduction des rôles binaires est toxique, et accentue davantage ces problématiques. Les personnes lesbiennes, gouines, butchs et queer ne doivent pas être utilisées pour assouvir les pulsions sexuelles, sexistes et misogynes des hommes. Il ne s'agit absolument pas d'un compliment d'utiliser une personne et son identité, sans son consentement, pour contenter les désirs patriarcaux de tous ces mecs cis hétéros. • #lesfoliespassageres #art #artist #artwork #artistsoninstagram #illustration #illustrator #feminist #feminism #feministe #feminisme #feministart #artiste #fatacceptance #bodyacceptance #bodydiversity #diversity #bodyhair #transrights #genderqueer #lesbian #dyke #lgbtq

Guess what? You're doing amazing.. keep going ❤

goodnight P A R I S 💙💙

Can you thank your body for something she’s done for you today? Your body can hear you and (as ‘woo woo’ as it may sound) she deserves to hear your gratitude. Is there one thing you can thank your body for? Post below if you like 💖 #bodygratitude #bodyacceptance #bodykindness #bodyneutrality

From my blog post coming tomorrow . Now I have to look at those pictures differently. I have to really see the sadness in the eyes of the girl in the before picture and the exhaustion in the face of the girl in the after photo. I have to recognize that the diet cult gave me a warped perception of what it takes to love my body and what it takes to call myself successful at being healthy . The diet culture cult tells you which of these photos is more beautiful but it’s just not true. Happy is not in either of these pictures . #dietculture #bodypositive #bodyacceptance #fuckthediet #happiness #cult #beforeandafter #blogpost

The weight on the scale is like a well intentioned friend. . . They may not always give you accurate advice, but they will make sure you know when you’re doing too much. . . This increase is not associated with a negative state for me. . . I exercised and cooked my food instead of ordering out and binge eating. . . It’s a win and now it’s time to win more.

The thing is though, I really COULD NOT CARE LESS whether you find my body attractive. My love for my body does not centre around you liking what I look like - it doesn’t even centre around me liking what I look like. My love for my body centres around the way it has cared for me and kept me alive through the most difficult times and the greatest risks I took. My love for my body centres around the fact that it does it’s best to help me achieve everything I want to achieve every single day. The way I love my body is built on the fact that she is recovering from the years of trauma I put her through and when, after all the time I silenced her, she asks for what she needs/wants, there’s no way I’m not listening.

I want to make a recommendation ♥ Read. This. Book. 📙 (& follow @bodyposipanda ) Everyday I read numerous posts on Facebook or Instagram where people are unhappy about their bodies, their weight, their cellulite, their stretch marks etc. And 6 months ago, I was doing the same. However since following @bodyposipanda (and many other body positive profiles) and reading Body Positive Power my whole perspective has changed. I was constantly in a cycle of dieting or binge eating (followed by overwhelming guilt). But I can now honestly say I will never diet again, and I also never feel guilty for eating food, why should I? Food has no moral value, I haven't done a bad thing by eating a chocolate bar. While I occasionally over indulge still, because I enjoy it, I no longer feel the urge to eat everything in sight because I know its always available, I'm not planning on never eating it again as of tomorrow when I start slimming world/slim fast/calorie counting, or whatever diet I was going to try next, and inevitably fail (as 95% of diets do) I no longer look in the mirror with disgust because my body has fat, stretch marks, cellulite etc, and I'm so much happier for it. #bodypositivity #bodypositive #antidietculture #nomorediets #bodypositivepower #everyoneisworthy #everybodyisagoodbody #bodyacceptance #fyourbeautystandards #feminism #antidiet #antidietdietclub #foodhasnomoralvalue #intuitiveeating #youareenough #morethanabody #effyourbeautystandards #iweigh #bodypositivememes #bodypositivemovement #bopo

Body Positivity Part One: Body Acceptance 💪🏽 . . . I am by no means an expert when it comes to body acceptance. I’ve spent most of my life deeply discouraged when I have failed to follow a healthy diet or keep up with a workout regimen. I constantly belittled my worth because I didn’t have the “perfect” body that mainstream media consistently glorifies. . . . I was super apprehensive about posting this picture. Although I’ve come a long way with being kinder to my body and feeling comfortable in my skin, body acceptance is something I still need to practice and be mindful of. . . . Body positivity shouldn’t start once you’ve reached a goal weight or a certain pant/dress size. I know it’s hard to shake off that mindset, but it’s important to love the body you’re currently in and be thankful for all that it has done for you. Today I’m sharing my thoughts about overall body acceptance in my stories and hope those that struggle with their body image find it helpful. || #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance #selflove #bodyimage #allbodiesaregoodbodies #latergram #hujicam

“Hey Alex, I’m down 2 lbs this week, thank you so much!”⁣ “Down 5 lbs! I didn’t even know this was possible”⁣ “ thank you! I’m down 1lbs and so happy with myself, I love the group it really keeps me going “ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ All messages I got this morning as our weekly accountability weigh ins come in ♥️♥️♥️ ⁣ I also got a message thanking me for sharing my “real mom bod”. Someone told me it made them feel better about theirs ♥️ ladies ... rock YOUR bods, whatever kind they are ✨ ⁣ I love this job 😍✨

🌻🌻 I am sick of living in fear. I am sick of worrying about what people think about me. Why should I care? Why should I give them the time of day? * I want to live my best life. I want to create good memories that I’ll cherish forever. If I dwell on negativity and the “what-ifs” in life, I sure as hell won’t be able to live a life of love and happiness. * My goal is to challenge myself. Push myself out of my comfort zone because THAT is where I will find confidence. That is where I will embrace who I am the most. * I’m starting with what I wear. That is HUGE when learning to accept your body. I have always said that I will never ever wear high-waisted pants because I “didn’t have the body” to “pull them off.” * My dear, if you got legs, a waist and a torso, you can wear freaking high-waisted pants. You can wear anything you choose. NOBODY else’s opinion matters. * So I bought a pair. And I rocked them. And I will continue to rock them until the day I die. Trust me, I was nervous. Especially tucking in my shirt and allowing every curve to be seen. But it was also so liberating. So FREEING. * Self-doubt bubbled and negativity appeared at times but I counteracted those thoughts and put them to rest. I reminded myself that life is more than what I wear. More than what my body looks like. And that my worth would NEVER be determined by my outward appearance. * So challenge yourself. Take risks. Push yourself to embrace your full potential. This is your ONLY life you guys... why waste it on worry, self-doubt and on other people? Find your confidence. Respect yourself. Love endlessly. And do whatever the hell your heart and soul desire 💕💕 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 #loveyourself #foodfreedom #selflove #selfworth #momsofinstagram #selfesteem #intuitiveeating #healthateverysize #haes #bodypositive #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #bodylove #bodyacceptance #morethanabody #normalizeallbellies #bopo #foodie #healthylifestyle #confidence #positivevibes #selfconfidence #love #highwaistedjeans #positivity #antidiet #goals #sunflower

Just a cute boy and his dog... We were just reminiscing last night about the day we used to dream about having two little Frenchy’s sitting with us on the couch as we watch TV. It’s so amazing and I’m so thankful to see all of it come full circle. God has been so great and so kind and so merciful to us for all the blessings he has given us over the years. Our 11 year relationship has come so far and it’s only the beginning. I am so thankful for this man and All he does for family. I’d love for you to share something that has come full circle in your life and what it’s Brock to you. He had no idea I took this picture... 💕

Week 2...day 8/42. Step ain’t getting any easier. I wasn’t sure what to expect out of today. I performed better but the workout was hard as hell too! I’m super excited I improved in the 3 “transformer” moves we do to compare our weekly progress. I felt better on the step for the first 12 minutes I was killing it. Then the last 8 min I was dying lol. Super excited to crush week 2!

« Voilà maintenant quelques mois que l’on cohabite enfin ensemble, que l’on s’apprivoise à petits pas. Toi que j’ai bafoué, détesté, violenté. Voilà quelques mois que je t’apporte de l’affection, et la tendresse que j’ai oublié de t’accorder durant toutes ces années. Toutes ces années où je ne t’ai pas laissé être toi, où j’ai estimé que te brimer était la meilleure solution pour que tu puisses affronter ce monde dans lequel tu as grandi. Voilà quelques mois que j’ai décidé de te prendre par la main et de t’aimer. J’ai décidé de te faire enfin vivre, toi, mon corps. Je te laisse enfin t’exprimer, toi qui t’es toujours tus, toi qui as toujours fait passer les autres avants toi-même, toi qui as toujours écouté les émotions des autres, et jamais les tiennes. Je n’ai d’ailleurs pas été souvent là pour toi, j’avoue avoir tenté de t’oublier, de t’abandonner, et même de te renier. Tu es un corps très fort, tu ne lâches jamais l’affaire, et je suis très en colère contre moi d’avoir pensé le contraire. Je suis fière de toi. Je sais que, malgré le long chemin qui nous attends tous les deux, on finira par se pardonner. J’aimerais que tu me pardonnes de t’avoir malmené comme je l’ai fait, de ne t’avoir laissé aucune chance, et aucun droit à l’erreur. Après toutes ces années, j’apprends à surpasser TES limites. Je vais me battre pour toi. Pour te montrer que rien n’est jamais foutu. Pour toi, j’accepte mes blessures, j’accepte tes faiblesses. Je t’écris ces derniers mots avec le sourire aux lèvres. Sois la bienvenue dans ma vie. » Chloé, @ellepensetrop Et Marine, @m.your_body . . . #beauty #bopo #bodypositive #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #positive #poledance #poledancing #bodyconfidence #pole #poledancer #bodyacceptance #bopo #embrace #bodyactivist #bodypositive #stronger #allbodiesaregoodbodies #awareness #youareperfect #effyourbeautystandards #feminism #feminist #art #women #illustration #etsyseller

Our next Tester Profile is sewist and blogger Sierra Burrell @sierraburrell!⠀ 💛How are you using your custom croquis from MyBodyModel? "Wardrobe planning, especially for silhouettes I haven’t tried before. It helps me see how a garment will look before I invest time, fabric, and energy in creating a new piece."⠀ 💛In what ways has your body model changed the way you think about your body and making clothes for your body? "It’s made me more adventurous in my clothing choices. It’s also helped me gain more confidence in the clothes I’m sewing. I can make small adjustments like moving the waistline on a dress and it completely changes the garment. That’s a lot easier to do with a sketch than a final garment."⠀ 💛What is your favorite body model format to use? ⠀ "I like to use the digital JPEG format because I get to use my iPad to sketch out my ideas. The new back view helped me see the full outfit in all its glory. Moving forward I will use the view with 9 models per page to plan my make nine."⠀ 💛In what ways do you think MyBodyModel's custom templates will be helpful for makers? "It gives them a chance to see a pattern or style on their body. It’s so important to see yourself in the finished product. It’s empowering and very helpful when planning a self sewn wardrobe. MyBodyModel has been an amazing tool for me and I’m excited to continue using it in the future."⠀ 💛Thank you so much, Sierra!

Känner du ofta sug på kvällen och förstår inte varför? Fråga dig själv, har jag ätit tillräckligt? Har jag ätit varierat? Har jag fått i mig av alla källor? Vad åt jag, vad bestod det av? Kanske något som inte ger särskilt långvarig mättnad som soppa, grönsaker, frukt? FYLL PÅ. Känn efter vad du behöver, hungrig - ät nåt mer, sugen - tillåt dig äta vad du är sugen på och fundera över om du fått i dig allt du behöver för att lära dig göra skillnad på hunger/sug och lättare kunna göra medvetna val för att tillfredsställa kropp och själ. Men glöm inte att det är normalt att bli hungrig eller sugen på något och att det är okej att äta efter middagen, det gör jag jämt.

When I let go of the idea that I had to love my stretch marks--had to love every bit of my body--I found the freedom to accept them. Listen, I don't love my stretch marks. But I have them and I'm okay with it. I don't care if someone sees them because they're nothing to be ashamed of. ⁣ ⁣ 80% of women have them. Usually because of pregnancy. And there's no better reason to embrace them. My stretch marks are proof my body created and nourished children. Maybe your stretch marks show the hard work of immense weight loss. Or maybe adulthood came to you with rapid growth spurts, causing your skin to tear as it kept pace with your muscles and bones. ⁣ ⁣ They're not going away. And I think it's time social medial, Hollywood, and the fashion industry represent the majority of women. When you're constantly confronted with images of perfectly smooth, taut fifteen-year-old bodies and told that's how you should look as a middle-aged mother, you begin to think your body isn't normal.⁣ ⁣ Isn't okay. ⁣ ⁣ I'm telling you...your body is beautiful. Stretch marks, cellulite, belly rolls, and all. It's normal. It's acceptable. ⁣ ⁣ You don't have to love it. But you'll never find peace until you accept it. And understand that not one part of your body defines you. Nothing about the way you look gives you value or worth. ⁣ ⁣ Have you made peace with your body?⁣ ⁣

Belgian astronomer Adolphe Quetelet invented the BMI calculation in the 1830s because he was interested in observing “norms” in human beings as determined by the bell curve. The measurement had nothing to do with body fat, mortality, or disease and more to do with the mathematical laws of probability. In the 1940s, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company adopted the BMI measurement to determine how much to charge their customers for insurance. For more info on why BMI is BS, order a copy of our book, “Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and quiet that critical voice!)” [photo description: a quote by Toni Martin that reads “What I’ve learned the hard way is that BMI tells you nothing about a patient’s health.”] #reclaimhealth #cultivateselflove #declareyourownauthenticbeauty #buildcommunity #5corecompetencies #thebodypositive #bebodypositive #loveyourbody #liveyourlife #embody #losehatenotweight #bopo #bodypositive #selflove #selfcare #authenticbeauty #feminism #bodylove #bodyacceptance #confidence #selflovebringsbeauty #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositivity #intuition #intuitiveeating #bodyliberation

Repost from @theselflovesummit ・・・ ...so don’t take any 💩 talk from yourself, y’hear?! @theselflovesummit

1 of 4, the body, an experience of working to understand and accept the self. A series that took a lot of self reflection in itself as I have never been comfortable with my body, this is not me nor are any of the bodies featured in these works. I was in a very dark place in my life when I started these works and I physically was repulsed at myself and every small mark, spot, and difference. The thought of a naked human body made me uncomfortable and shameful toward myself and my appearance. Truly I would pick apart all of my flaws and only focus on the “perfections” of others. It took working through projects like this to understand and accept the imperfections of the body as art. I have always appreciated imperfection in art as what makes it special to the artist and allows for interpretation, and it gave me time to understand that the body is a work and it is beautiful differences and imperfections included. #instagramart #artistsoninstagram #artinlife #bodyacceptance #bodypositive #figuredrawing #artseries #nudedrawing #study #oilpastel #blue #art #drawing #artists#artistsofinstagram #instaart #art #serieswork #thebody

Balancing COLLEGE & SELF-CARE ⠀⠀ 📚When I began my college journey, my school put a large amount of emphasis on eating enough food, getting enough sleep, and checking in with yourself before committing to doing things. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 👩🏽‍💻Personally, when I’m really busy, I often forget to take breaks for meals, and stay up very late to make the most out of my day. In doing that, I have learned that when I get an adequate amount of food and sleep, I get far more done in a shorter amount of time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👯‍♀️I also find it difficult to turn down invitations solely because I’d like some time for myself. In my mind, it doesn’t seem like a good enough reason. This can be REALLY difficult when you’re surrounded by hundreds of new faces, all of which you want to make your very best impression on. ⠀⠀ 🍨Even when I know I’d rather be at home, in bed, eating ice cream, reading a book, I often convince myself that I will be better liked if I go out like everyone else. This is all a learning process. Sometimes I go beyond my limit, and learn from those experiences. ⠀⠀ 🙆🏽‍♀️We tend to ignore the fact that our body is what makes doing all of these things possible. Our body enables us to do the tasks that we want and need to do every single day. ⠀⠀ 😴We will not be able to complete a full day of classes, work, rehearsals, studying, or socializing without taking care of ourselves first. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 😁There are certain things that I do in my daily schedule that make me feel my best. Even though it’s difficult, I try to respect my boundaries and stand up for myself in situations when other people are pressuring me to go beyond what I am comfortable doing. ⠀⠀ 🍱For example, when I am tired after a long day and some friends ask me to go out for dinner, reply with a rain check as opposed to ignoring my body’s signal that it’s exhausted and has had enough for today. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ↘️The bottom line is that you have important things to do: study, socialize, rehearse, attend classes, etc. ⠀⠀ BUT all of those things come AFTER getting adequate amounts of sleep, food, and any other self-care practices you utilize. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 🧘🏽‍♀️How are you balancing work, college, or school with self care, sleep, and food? 🍿

New blog up on my website! (Link in bio) ✨ "I’m not a dietitian, personal trainer, or any kind of health and fitness expert. I’m not a psychologist, although I do have a bachelor's degree in psychology, so that must mean something, right? But I do know a lot about body positivity simply because I’ve walked through the darkness of self-hatred and have come out the other side with a new perspective on body image, self-love, and what it means to have “body positivity.” ✨ Since I’ve entered the body positivity space I’ve noticed there seems to a lot of right and wrong way to do things but I think the approach body positivity should be as individual as our bodies. What works for me might not work for you, and that’s okay! Do it your way. #30daysofselflove #bodypositivityforeveryone

Stressed doesn’t begin to describe it... We got a puppy on Saturday and my daughter started throwing up on Sunday.... Full on panic attack last night to go along with it. Not to mention when I’m stressed I find it hard to eat. Aside from coffee and a smoothie I haven’t eaten real food since around 4 PM yesterday Part of my OCD is that I don’t do well with change and a puppy is a big change. She’s obviously not house broken so I’m taking her outside to go to the bathroom in about 2 degree weather. I feel like I can’t to sleep whenever I want because she needs to be walk before going in the crate. Then there’s a sick kid thrown into the mix Just like a newborn I know the puppy phase doesn’t last forever but right now the disruption of the “normal” of my life is hard AF. I wish I could say that not eating has nothing to do with control but it does. I can’t control what’s going on in my house but I can control this #healthymom #healthymama #fitfam #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #trustandbelieve #digdeeper #tisfortransformation #edrecovery #orthorexia #theongoingkey #workingonme #bodyacceptance #mentalhealth #orthorexiarecovery #edrecovery #ed #anxiety #foodanxiety #morethananumber #bodydysmorphia

Mood of the day: noooodles 🍜🍜🍜 The weather in Pittsburgh has a windchill below 0 degrees, so naturally I am carb loading because cold weather makes me want all of the noodles, potatoes, and bread. These foods are warm & comforting, and it makes me so sad that our current low carb diet culture tells us to fear them. Food is so much more than nutrients - it’s culture, it’s taste, it’s emotion, it’s gathering with people you love. Here is your permission to decouple carbs & calories from fear. Having off from classes gives me some time to do activities I genuinely enjoy today, and I’m very thankful for that 🌿 I hope everyone has a beautiful Monday 🌿

“Give yourself permission to have a whole feeling. It won’t kill you.” -Iyanla Van Zant . . . It can be really tempting to avoid or try to deny uncomfortable feelings. But identifying your emotions, acknowledging them, and allowing yourself to fully feel them is crucial. Trying to fight your feelings or use negative coping strategies only leads to more suffering in the long run. . . . . . #psychotherapy #edtreatment #eatingdisorders #recoverywarrior #recoveryisworthit #eatingdisordersrecovery #neda #eatingdisorders #bulimiarecovery #bingeatingrecovery #bedrecovery #orthorexiarecovery #miarecovery #intuitiveeating #allfoodsfit #haes #recoverysupport #bodyacceptance #bodyimage #bopo #healthateverysize #ditchthediet #antidiet #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthmatters #psychotherapist #iyanlavanzant #iyanlafixmylife #feelyourfeelings

🌸 Quel dommage .. Que d’être en quête constante de l’âme sœur .. Alors même qu’on est étrangers à sa propre âme .. 🌸 Pourquoi cette envie constante d’être en relation ? Pourquoi cette envie systématique d’être à quelqu’un avant d’être quelqu’un ? Pourquoi cette recherche du couple ? 🌸 « Parce que l’on juge souvent les gens seuls » « Parce que le temps passe » « Parce que je n’aime pas rester seul » Sont la plupart des réponses que vous entendrez .. . Soyez seuls ! Mangez seuls ! Dormez seuls ! Sortez seuls ! Faites des têtes à têtes avec vous-mêmes .. . Et au milieu de tout ça .. Vous apprendrez de vous-mêmes .. Vous grandirez .. Vous vous épanouirez .. Vous saurez quels sont vos rêves .. Vous verbaliserez vos peurs .. Vous mettrez le doigts sur vos envies .. Vous soignerez vos blessures .. Et vous gagnerez en clairvoyance .. . Et ce n’est que comme ça que lorsque l’amour frappera à votre porte .. Vous saurez le distinguer clairement .. Vous serez sûrs de lui car vous serez sûrs de vous .. Vous vous battrez pour lui .. Et vous lui accorderez sa juste place .. 🌸 Cherchez l’amour simplement pour ne pas être seuls .. Pour dormir dans les bras de quelqu’un .. Pour entendre des compliments .. Ou pour vous pavaner devant vos amis .. Et vous n’expérimentez probablement jamais ce que l’amour véritable est ! 🌸 Et vous l’amour ? Vous l’avez trouvé ? Vous l’avez laissé échapper ? Vous le cherchez encore en vous-mêmes ?

Do the things that set your soul on fire 🌸

SO IMPORTANT💖 Fat women, you matter. Fat PEOPLE. You matter. Eating disorder or not, you matter. . I can not deny my privilege when it comes to my body. No matter how unhappy I am with it. That’s why I want to start using my platform to highlight women in marginalized bodies so that they too can have their voices heard. . . Today on the podcast, I’ve asked plus-sized stylist and self love coach, Luddy Figueroa(@thefoulmouthedfashionista) to join me in a conversation specifically about why “FAT” should not be a bad word! “Fatphobic sounds bad,” she says, “but that’s how our society is. They do not want to see fat women glow. In fact, they don’t want to see them at all.” We also hit on some super important topics such as the unbalanced modeling industry, health at any size, and more. Luddy is so fun and this episode is incredibly important. The link to the podcast(episode 16) is in my bio!💗🎙🎧

Rolling into Monday like... (promise I did take more normal selfies to be uploaded later)

⚠️How do you measure your personal worth?🚨. . 👉Seriously. I have heard too many grown humans measure up their worth in their muffin top, flat butt, thunder thighs, stretch marks, saggy boobies, small boobies, big boobies, wrinkles, cellulite, loose skin, C-section “apron”, boney hips, long arms, thin hair, curly hair, short legs, long legs, OR whatever else we “hate” about ourselves. . ⚡️These things only define our worth & happiness IF WE LET THEM (by placing our worth in them)!! . 👏You decide! You get to decide 💪! . 🥰What will you put your worth and happiness in? . 🤟You are soooo much more than a body! A career. A bank account. A status. . . #reviveandthrive #bodyacceptance #bodylove #selflove #loveyourself #youaremorethanabody #youareworthit

Ho passato tutta la vita a cercare di capire il caos che ho dentro. Poi, quasi tre anni fa, un amico mi ha regalato me stessa e mi ha insegnato a vedere. Ora tutti quegli spigoli, e quelle zone d’ombra, non fanno più paura. 📷 @hermes_mereghetti #selfdiscovery #blackandwhitephotography #portrait #internalchaos #mindfulnessmatters #mindfulliving #bodyacceptance #acceptyouremotions #photoshoot #portraitphotography #womanpower #girlpower

Post numero ✌🏼 for #pmamondays 🤗 There are so many mindset books, audiobooks etc. with content that includes things like learning to give less of a fuck and not caring what others think of you. Caring too much about what people think of you is what holds most of us back in life. It’s stops us from doing the things we most desire in life and it boxes us off into comfort zones. I made the mistake of always trying to live up to the expectations of others and always wanting people to like me, but it meant I was doing way too much and it lead to me suffering with social anxiety, despite being a confident gal. You cannot change the opinion of what other people think of you and to be honest, it’s really none of your business anyways. When you realise these things and start to realise that your opinion of yourself is the only one that matters, then you will start to feel a sense of freedom✨ Free from overthinking, free from feeling less than and free from the fear of being judged. Try to become more aware of yourself doing this & empower yourself to give less of a fuck☺️

This is so disgusting. I know in late to post this (I had the flu) boy I felt I needed to. Indigenous people matter. Indigenous lives matter. 🧡 . . . . .

Petit retour sur samedi dernier et notre tour en #buggy . Ça ne se voit pas là mais j'étais fri-go-ri-fiée ❄️😂 mais au top, j'ai adoré et je compte bien en refaire quand il fera un peu plus chaud 🔥👌🏼

Retour du sport du lundi 💪 Ces temps-ci je ne me sens pas bien dans ma peau. La période des fêtes a été difficile à gérer pour moi, comme chaque année, et plusieurs semaines après je ressens encore un mal-être. L'impression d'avoir grossi, d'être flasque de partout, d'être nulle. Je sais que cette période n'est pas évidente pour beaucoup de monde, et je me rends compte que j'ai du mal à passer à autre chose. La profusion de bouffe me pose problème, alors le déballage d'apéros, de chocolats, d'alcools, de galettes des rois... c'est too much pour moi. J'adore manger, je suis super gourmande, mais quand j'en ai envie, quand ça me fait plaisir. Là je me suis sentie "obligée" et je n'ai pas forcément apprécié. Je me sens serrée dans mes fringues, mal à l'aise. Mais l'énorme différence c'est qu'avant je me laissais dépasser et je tombais dans le foutu pour foutu. Aujourd'hui, simplement, j'accepte de ressentir tout ça, et je ne m'en veux pas. L'hiver joue sur le moral, le manque de lumière, le froid (je veux de la neige moi!!), des soucis au travail qui se profilent, et il n'en faut pas plus pour entâcher ma bonne humeur. Je ne vous raconte pas ça pour me faire plaindre, juste pour vous dire que ça arrive à tout le monde et que c'est pas grave. J'ai décidé de me faire confiance, que ça passerait, et de ne pas me rabaisser psychologiquement. J'avoue que j'ai hâte de me sentir mieux, mais finalement c'est totalement normal de vivre des hauts et des bas non? Et ce post est beaucoup trop long 😅. Bonne soirée les copains 😚. --------------- #instamum #mumoftow #healthylife #healthylifestyle #vegetarian #veggie #vegetarianfood #mangersain #mamansportive #fitness #loveyourself #bodyacceptance #bodylove #family

Whenever someone messages me saying “I wish I had your confidence” I always like to respond with the fact that I used to be the most self-conscious person ever for the majority of my life. My lack of confidence was one of the biggest reasons I always tried to shrink my body. To hopefully become ‘more confident’. It took me years to understand that confidence doesn’t magically appear when you change your body. For me, it was quite the opposite. I became even less confident and more self-conscious, because I felt as if my entire self worth was attached to my body. The pressure to keep my body small was all consuming. There was no confidence to be seen 🧐 * For me, I’ve come to realize that confidence is something that comes with time, by doing things outside your comfort zone over and over and over. By trying to care less about what other people think of you and more about what YOU think of you, over and over and over. 🤗 It took practice, a whole lot of positive self talk and always having faith in myself that I am enough just as I am. ❤️ You know that cheesy saying “life begins at the end of your comfort zone”? I’ve found this to be very true for me and I know it will be for you, too 😘 . . . ____________________________________________ #ownitbabe #beachday #bodyconfidence

When I think of how horribly I used to treat my body, I cringe. But that's in the past and I am never going back. I haven't taken diet pills in years. I haven't starved myself in ages. I very rarely binge due to my emotions now. I no longer hate the way I look. At my lowest weight, from hardly eating and going to the gym for hours every day, I still wasn't happy with my appearance. I don't like sharing my weight. It used to be because of shame and embarrassment, but now I don't want to because it's irrelevant. I haven't weighed myself in over a month and I don't intend to anytime soon. I am even going to get rid of the scale eventually. It's not needed in my life anymore. That was my previous life. My eating disordered life. I feel reborn! ~ #selflove❤️ #mentalhealthwarrior #goddesspower #goddessvibes #peacefulwarrior #selfcaredaily #bodypositivebabe #positivebodyimage #positivebody #lovemybody💓 #fuckdiets #notonadiet #dietculturesucks #dietssuck #balancedlifestyle #balanceddiet #intuitiveeating #ditchthediet #eatingdisorder #eatingdisordersrecovery #recoverywarriors #loveunconditional #starvation #binge #bingeeating #bopo #foodfreedom #bodyacceptance #anorexiarecovery

Me alot: 'I feel fat' erm April... FAT IS NOT A FEELING! 🤔 I've been doing alot of reading on diet culture and the negative impact it has on mental health and body image. Made me realise how out of tune I am with my bodies natural hunger. I'm asking myself why? Why do I eat to the clock/macros? Why am I scared of being fat? Why do I fear people thinking I'm unhealthy? Is that alI have to define me? I no longer want to be the one known for her 'willpower, dedication, healthy lifestyle' blah blah blah... Meh! Done! I can be happy at any size, Any shape and preferably eating a doughnut! After 10 years....Goodbye diet world.

Okay, so I DID IT! I touched on myself while meditating for 5 days straight 🧘🏾‍♀️🤫 Yep, you read correctly. Our bodies crave touch and it’s essential for physical, mental and spiritual well-being. As someone that adores meditation and views it as a necessity for my sanity, I was really excited to try this new practice of mindful moisturizing and it’s now apart of my consistent #selflove routine. I had the honor and privilege of partnering with @healthline to introduce this powerful technique and I’m excited to share my personal experience with all of you. Check out the article I wrote for Healthline at the link here: https://bit.ly/2RN8jll / in my bio on my 5 day journey with mindful moisturizing, along with a few tips on how you can try it too!

It may not feel like it every minute of everyday, but it’s absolutely true that we are all enough, right now, just as we are.

Yes 👏👏👏👌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #knowyourworth #selfcare #selflove #loveyourcurves #bodypositive #bodypositivity #love #bopo #effyourbeautystandards #loveyourself #confidence #loveyourbody #selfworth #bodyacceptance #bodylove #girlpower #inspire #positivity #i #bodypositiveart #loveyourself #bodylove #feminism

Parce qu'une bonne journée au spa, ce n'est pas que se tremper le jacuzzi avant d'aller transpirer au hammam et au sauna. C'est aussi passer sous la douche glacée pour ré activer la circulation sanguine et raffermir la peau ! . . . Hier, j'étais de passage dans la magnifique spa de l'@archipelagde après une séance de sophrologie aux côtés d'@sophrologie.helenelabrousse... Une matinée consacrée à la gestion du stress, suivie d'un bon moment de détente pour finir d'intégrer les différents outils dont nous avions parlé... . . . Un pur moment de bien-être pour prendre du recul sur les soucis du quotidien... Et pour finalement trouver des solutions !! . . . Clairement, j'adore prendre le temps pour une séance spa. Autant pour le bien être physique avec la détente musculaire que pour le bien être mental ! Je ressors du jacuzzi lessivée des tracas. Je transpire mes problèmes dans le sauna... Bref, je me reconnecte avec moi même et je m'apaise... . . . Chose dont j'ai énormément besoin en ce moment ! Ne plus avoir le nez dans le guidon, prendre du recul pour avoir une vision globale de mes projets, de ce qui coince et au contraire de ce qui fonctionne bien... . . . Bref, je sens que je vais retourner à l'archipel plus souvent moi ! 😅 . . . #spa #archipelagde #sauna #hammam #jacuzzi #douchefroide #bienetre #bodypositive #bopo #bodyacceptance #bikini #wonderbody #freelance #entrepreneur #entrepreneuriatfeminin #bonheur #igrunneuses #dubndiducrew #activre #moveyour🍑 #lifestyle #motivation #teamshape #teamfitcats #agde #fitfrenchies

I decided to workout without music this week.... here’s why. When we have a banging beat to get us through... we aren’t listening. We aren’t in the burn.... in the challenge... In the CHANGE. All that uncomfort... its there for a reason. When things we get all into our minds And ALLLL THAT CHATTER starts! And with the distractions of music (or what ever) we aren’t witnessing what our thought are telling us about ourselves We aren’t seeing our selves Our beliefs Our upper limits Our bullshit stories I think it’s this way with food too... When we eat without being present When we over “comfort” ourselves in the name of selflove or anything else We aren’t seeing the things So it’s time for me (and YOU) to sit with the chatter, sit with the thoughts... and feel into the burn so that we can HEAL all of the habits that don’t serve us Heal the excuses Heal the fear Heal the funky food behaviors Heal the body AND the mind Find out it’s ok to JUST sit with that part of you ••• Cart to get THE emotional eating masterclass for ONLY $22 closes tomorrow and you won’t see it at this price EVER again so get in my DM!

#repost @beberexha ❤️ 💯 #selflove ・・・ Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #loveyourbody . . . . . . . . #bodylove #bodypositive #gym #loveyourself #fitnessmotivation #love #bodybuilding #bodypositivity #bodygoals #selfcare #body #workout #motivation #healthy #health #bodyacceptance #abs #gymlife #bopo #bodycare #instagood #fitnessmodel #plussize #fit #fashion #gymmotivation

✨RESTRICTION CAN APPEAR IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS✨ while i’ve been at a stable, healthy weight for a few months, i made the decision to go vegan about two months ago (i was a vegetarian for about 10 months beforehand). while i didn’t restrict myself physically, i definitely felt restricted mentally. looking at ingredients and not eating foods because they had animal products turned those foods into fear foods. i don’t think veganism itself is restrictive in any way, but labelling the way i eat isn’t a good thing for me right now... but it can appear in different ways: mental restriction, when you tell yourself you can’t or shouldn’t eat something exercising because you feel you shouldn’t have eaten something eating a lot and then feeling guilty, then not eating when you get hungry again. look out for thoughts like this, as they can disguise themselves, tricking you into thinking it’s harmless. it’s not.💛 feel free to comment any questions or concerns! #bodypositivity #bopo #edwarrior #food #loveyourself #youareenough #dietssuck #dietculturedropout #bodiposi #beyourself #loveyourbody #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflovespo #haes #vegan #bodyacceptance #yoga #balance #selflove #intuitiveeating #normalizeallbellies #gainingweightiscool

My souls mission is for me to speak my truth,own it, and shine my light in hopes that through my vulnerability I can help you shine yours! Period. It doesn’t matter what you do in this world, as long as you show up in a place of love and light, you’re sending that out in to the universe to heal yourself and others. Every single decision I have made,path I have traveled on,every high and every low has lead me to my spiritual expansion and awakening. Nothing has been more clear than the decision I have made to show up in service to others by doing angel card readings. I have prayed and... They have heard my requests. They have given me guidance. They have spoken to me. They have shown themselves to me. They have guided me full circle back into the hands of angel card decks time and time again and this pattern is something that I refuse to ever place on a back burner again! They have specifically lead me to do readings to give you love,healing,guidance and support. I am an angel card reader and I will forever own this truth! What is YOUR TRUTH?! Are you OWNING IT?

دور میز نشسته بودیم داشتیم شام میخوردیم. بی مقدمه گفت هفتاد درصد مشاورهای خانواده باعث طلاق میشن. زن های مردم رو گول میزنن حتی پیر زن های پنجاه ساله رو🤪 قیافه من: 😲🙄😤😠 قیافه زن های پنجاه ساله:🤔😑🤯 در این موارد من انقدر شوک میشم که نمیتونم چیزی بگم فقط اخمم میره تو هم. ولی شوهر جان خیلی محترمانه گفت تا زمانیکه تو جامعه ای که از بندهای سنتی عبور کرده همچنان اجازه رشد فکری و اجتماعی به زن ها داده نشه و بخوایم به شکل سنتی باهاشون برخورد کنیم احتمال ایجاد همچین مشکلاتی هست. کاری ندارم که این جملش توهین به شخصیت زنها و حتی مشاورهای خانواده بود و اینکه زن ها حتی انقدر استقلال شخصیتی ندارن که یه نفر میتونه از راه برسه و مثل بچه ها با دادن یه شکلات گولشون بزنه و زندگیشون رو به هم بریزه. اما چند روزه این موضوع ذهن من رو درگیر کرده که چه عاملی باعث میشه یه نفر همچین حرفی رو بزنه؟! به نظرم یکی از عواملش درگیر بودن منافع شخصی افراده که باعث میشه آدم ها انقدر مغرضانه راجع به مسائل نظر بدن و راحت به اطرافیان توهین کنن. نظر شما چیه؟! _______________________________ #streetstyles #streetfashionstyle #stylishgirl #استایل #ترند #persianblogger #تپل #بلاگر #خودت_باش #زندگی_زیباست#پلاس #فشن_بلاگر #استایل_خیابانی #استایل_ایرانی #استایل_زنانه#bodyacceptance #curvyfashionista #plussizebeauties #plussizefashionista #plusfashion
