"If you love your body, why are you trying to change it?"
I actually have been asked this quite a few times recently so I've done some reflecting.
Who says you can't love your body as is AND still work toward changing yourself for the better?
The girl on the left was happy in her body.
This was honestly the start of my complete self-acceptance and self-love and body positivity.
Between these pictures, I've changed my workout regimen to something that I truly enjoy.
I eat to 80% to fuel and nourish my body.
And I eat 20% to make my heart and soul happy.
I have finally found this balance that is constantly talked about on SM.
Our bodies are constantly changing.
SELF-LOVE AND BODY POSITIVITY DO NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO STAY STAGNANT.
As long as you're making decisions based on what you want, and not what society is telling you to do, that's all that matters.
Self-love means loving your body at every stage.
It's why I hashtag #LoveYourEveryBody.
Love yourself when you're feeling bloated as much as when you're feeling lean.
Love yourself when you look tired as much as when you're glowing.
Remember that self-love looks different on everyone.
It's not black and white.
It's through thick and through thin.
It's loving your body not only in the good days, but everyday.
If you want to be better for yourself, be better for yourself.
Isn't that a form of self-love anyway?
