Piggybacking off of @bodyposipanda 's trending blog post on how to diversify your newsfeed, I think another incredibly powerful way to help shift body perceptions is to spend time naked around other women-- you read that right-- go get naked around other women.
.
I spent most of the day at #OlympicSpa, surrounded by gorgeous women of all heights, shapes, sizes, colors. And I casually noticed that no body was alike, EVERY body had cellulite or dimples of some variety and every body, even the thinnest, jiggled and wiggled in all their glory! I WISH I grew up seeing such a diverse range of bodies.
.
Many Korean bathhouses even allow children to be present as well with the women in their families, bathing together in a communal fashion, and while I can sense that some conservatives may be appalled, I firmly believe that modeling what a range of real, unaltered naked bodies look like for children (and adults) helps to neutralize women's bodies and recalibrate perceptions. It's crazy that the natural, nude female body is still seen as offensive. And the fact that it is still unequally censored between genders is outrageous (grrrrr) but that's another long rant for another day... #genderdiscrimination

Let’s talk about food and dieting culture for a moment: Last night I got off work and my body demanded a chicken sandwich, chicken nuggets, fries and a frosty. It was amaze balls. Then this morning I woke up with a slight stomach ache, and an insatiable desire for cucumbers, yogurt, and watermelon. I try to collect and respect the symptoms and info my body gives me, but ultimately, not overthink or judge it. I am not “good" for eating this meal in all its colorful splendor, anymore than I am "bad" for eating my tasty yellow dinner from Wendy’s last night while in a dark parking lot. Food is neutral and not tied to your morality. Your worth isn’t dependent on external conditions like food choices, weight, or validation. And fundamentally, we all deserve a lot better than having an unhealthy dynamic with food.
.
It starts with #mentalhealth and #spiritualwellbeing. So give yourself permission to let go. Challenge the #diet mentality and culture that runs deep, and stop forcing yourself to adhere to ridiculous rules in an attempt to change your body or feel worthy. .
I’m about to record a video for you all today on my YouTube channel where I’ll delve into my body story and talk about my experience with #disorderedeating and #dieting. Now go love + listen to your body, and most of all, enjoy your life.

When I was in fourth grade I had a sudden realization that I was not enough; that being overweight meant that there was something inherently wrong with me. Always determined, I began the habit of running around in circles in my bedroom after school, resolved to lose weight at an age where I should have been happily running through sprinklers eating otter pops and giving zero f*cks about my chub.

@ChristinaRacinePhotography took this lovely photo of me last weekend and it was the first time I ran around on a beach in sexy swimsuits modeling in front of ample onlookers. It was liberating as hell and I felt incredibly fierce, confident, and proud. As I ran around the beach, I felt like that little seven-year old me, who ran in circles in her tiny bedroom wishing she was different, was finally set free.
.
If I can overcome about two decades of self-hatred and disordered eating (also know as: dieting) so can you. Stay tuned for a video on my YouTube channel tomorrow talking more about my history with disordered eating and delving into my “body story” for those who are curious. Love, Elle .

Like all of us, I have many sides to my personality, and one of my favorites is appropriately named "#Gilda." She's high maintenance as hell, exceedingly tempestuous, somewhat childish, a bit of an exhibitionist and wholly unapologetic about being fabulous and exuding sex appeal. She also demands copious amounts of fun and tends to emerge when I curl my hair, wear red lipstick, or buy new lingerie. But be warned: she's exhausting and not for the faint of heart. 💃🏻#ALittleGoesALongWay

Also, just a friendly service announcement that dimples, cellulite, and lumps and bumps are NORMAL. Challenge your friends, daughters, sisters, wives, and girlfriends to cut the ritualistic body shame talk surrounding all of the above. It won't make it go away, nor will it make you feel as fabulous as you deserve to!
