Hey!!!!!!
I just wanna make it VERY clear to everyone that you don’t need glitter on your stretch marks to make them fucking cool or rad or beautiful or worthy to be seen.
Yasssss, technically I would love my whole body to be glizzzzted af at all times but the whole process of showing ourselves to complete strangers on the internet is for us to normalize what bodies look like!!!!!!!! And sometimes art can help us do that!!!
⚡️ stretch marks occur on the body from rapid growth
⚡️ unlike cellulite which mostly occurs in women, stretch marks are not gender exclusive
⚡️ they are also not size exclusive which means thin women to fat women have them
⚡️ they do NOT REPRESENT HEALTH
⚡️ they are not a measurement of worth, they are not something to make fun of, they literally just occur when our bodies grow.
If you hate them, ask yourself where that hate comes from?
I personally believe that hate is taught, even with children who are genetically predispositioned to being pessimistic, intense dislike of an AESTHETIC attribute is taught.
Anyways, find your love today!!!!!!
Happy Saturday moonbeams 🌹⚡️🌹

Obsession 🌿
I used to be obsessed with losing weight and getting abs. I thought once I hit a certain goal weight and get abs I'll be happy and worthy. That somehow, magically, all my insecurities and self doubt will go away.
But it doesn't work like that.
I would workout excessively and obsess about calories. I would get upset when I realised I still have tummy fat. I thought I was being healthy, but I forgot about my mental health along the way.
The truth is, losing weight won't make me happy or feel worthy because there will always be more weight that I'd want to lose. Losing weight didn't help me achieve life goals. There's so much more to life than obsessing about abs and weight.
You are worthy the way you are and are capable of being happy without having to drastically change your body. Society equates being lean and having abs to beauty. But beauty is different for everyone!! Beauty can be intelligence, compassion, drive. And I'm sure you are these things. Let's stop equating beauty and health to our bodies only. Our bodies are all different and what someone else's healthy is, may not be yours. And that's fine!! Do whatever makes YOU feel happy, healthy and confident because this is YOUR life. And don't forget, your body is amazing and capable of doing so much! It is nothing to be ashamed of!! 🌴☀️

This is stretch-marks. Not imperfections, not tiger-stripes, not glittery stripes, not stripes that ’I’ve earned’. It’s not ’lightning bolts to prove that I am a powerful force of nature’.
IT IS STRETCH-MARKS.
Nothing more, nothing less.
〰️
Why do we have to make it into something that it’s not for us to be able to accept it as a part of our body?
I’m honestly sick and tired of how we feel the need to sugar-coat every little thing about our bodies to be able to accept it.
A body does not need to be defined as beautiful to be worthy - it’s a body.
It does not have to be catogerized - it’s a body.
It does not have to be polarized as good or bad - it’s a body.
〰️
I find it extremely problematic that we feel the need to constantly define everything as good or bad, beautiful or ugly, worthy or not. It takes away our ability to live freely. If you feel beautiful you will always fear becoming ugly - when you see yourself as ugly you’ll constantly strive to become more beautiful. It is a never-ending cycle and it’s not going to stop if we continue to play the game of polarization - it is not going to end as long as we project our internal beliefs onto our bodies.
〰️
I don’t ’love my stripes’ since I don’t love my body because of HOW IT LOOKS. That is minimizing my body into mere a picture - which it is not. You cannot describe a body through a picture - the surface does not tell you everything, as all the depths and layers, about the actual body. It is making our body so much less than what it is as for example all the cells that is continuously working together to keep us alive.
〰️
And so can we please stop making cellulites, stretch-marks and apparent ’imperfections’ into the opposite of what we’ve always been told - trying to make it into something ’beautiful’ instead of something ’ugly’ - to compensate as a means to find self-acceptance.
Can’t we just let our bodies BE? And let them BE just as they are, without having to put glitter on our stripes to ’Make them beautiful’?
As long as one side of the polarization is allowed, as ’beautiful’, the other side will inevatible remain - as ’ugly’. And our bodies are not just one or the other - our bodies are bodies.

Well we’re officially #1monthout and I’m up roughly 15lbs 🤑 still holding it pretty well though I think and with jumping right back into exam mode post show (let alone pre show right at the end of prep 😅) I’m damn well happy with it.😊

Since #ancora #imparo what have I learned? I get now why people get all these contorted #bodyimageissues during #prep, and definitely after it’s over 😬😬😬 #realtalk it’s kinda hard to look at yourself and know you could look better today if you didn’t eat so much the day before...if you worked a little harder the day before...if you didn’t go out and indulge in the week prior...but also recognize that it’s always been unsustainable to stay as lean as you picture yourself at your “best” not so long ago.

What to do? You have to #learn to #remember you love every part of who ya are, and ya look just fine no matter what, because after all #youremorethanjustabody ☺️

The reality is our body’s are always changing and we never know what will come up in real life that will keep us from our ideal physiques; this was awesome for a time, and that time will come again I’m sure, but it’s time to enjoy myself and focus on a different type of learning - #powerlifting #chiropractic & as always #selfdiscovery
#advicewithancora ✍🏾 if you’re going to try your 🙌🏾 and step on stage one day, spend a good few weeks #preppingforprep to get your body AND mind right. What’s the point if you can’t live with yourself/love yourself even more than when you started when it’s all said and done? 🙏🏾

Hey guys, I've been wanting to make a video about this since forever but I was kind of scared because I felt like maybe I wasn’t the ‘right person’ to have these issues or maybe I couldn’t bring across the message as ‘perfectly’ as other people might be able to do. However, I think it is so important to show that we all have struggles and even more important to show how you can overcome struggles you have. This is a very honest, open video of how I overcame a period of feeling depressed and very insecure about my body and moved towards a happy, healthy mindset. Hope this will help you if you struggle with body image or insecurities in general! Love, Robin | #linkinbio #bodyimageissues #bodypositive #happymindhappylife

Real talk: I remember seeing this picture and thinking it’d be such a cute, candid picture...if my cellulite wasn’t visible!!!! But I saw it again today and thought I should post it. My cellulite doesn’t really bother me, yes of course it’d be cool if I didn’t have much either, but I’m a woman and I’m human and it’s normal. My confidence and mental health have changed so much over the last few months. I have so much more growing to do but I know I can get there 💪🏼 .

I've been wanting to post a blog piece on my own personal body image issues for months now, but the words never seemed to flow and I seriously just couldn't get it right. But the drive from Canggu to Uluwatu got me all creative and it's finally here... it's published... and it perfectly sums up how I feel. Take a read-> the link is in my bio 🍃💫 #HappySophia #BodyImageIssues

I get a lot of these questions: “how do I start loving myself?” “what do I start with?” “how did you start?”
They all answer get answered with a giant fat: I don’t know.
I wish I had each individual analysis as to how and where you should start, what the easiest way is for you and how to go about it without making you uncomfortable.
But truth of the matter is, I just woke up one day and did it. I was so fucking inspired and hated myself so much for not being able to lose more weight to the point where it wasn’t an option for me anymore (maybe?) I’m not quite sure. I just did it. I woke up and I did it. It was that simple, the process that unveiled became more complex but waking up and starting was just being inspired and following the bread crumbs of curiosity.
I don’t know how you should do it or when, I don’t know how to make you love yourself. I don’t know how to make it easy or how to simplify it for you. I wish I could snap my fingers and make you realize how amazing you are but I can’t. I wish I could take away all your bad stuff and replace it with positivity, love and wonder.
I can only hope I inspire you to follow your own curious heart, inspire you to dive into the unknown, inspire you to challenge yourself and remind you that regardless of you do it or not, that you’re a human being with a story that deserves to be told. That’s deserves light and love. That deserves to be seen.
I can only hope 🧡

Anyways I’ll get real with ya’ll because it’s late and for some reason those two things go hand in hand. When I see this picture the FIRST thing I notice is my side rolls and I’m instantly thinking “wow I’m a (almost) trainer and I’m not skinny.” And I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been depriving myself of food recently because I don’t feel like I’m where I should be at. Which I know is so ridiculous because I know I’m healthy, I eat well normally, I exercise often, and I’m deep in my studies. The pressure I’ve felt and put on myself to look a certain way is unhealthy and I know I’m not the only one who does this. All just because I think I’m not up to instagrams standards of beauty; maybe this photo won’t get 500+ likes, maybe I have cellulite on my thighs, maybe I let myself live life and eat some extra carbs once in awhile. THATS WHAT IS HEALTHY. Not deprivation and comparison and poking and prodding at our bodies that are doing their best to keep up with our demands. It’s SO unrealistic to look like a bikini model 24/7 for most girls, and food is not the enemy it is FUEL. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 2018 I am going to LOVE myself and RESPECT myself. I encourage all of you to reconsider your habits of how you treat yourself and give yourself some god damn credit. #resolutions #2018 #selflove #bodyimageissues #fitnesslifestyle #foodisfuel

Do not let anyone sway the goals that you have set for yourself. The come back feels so good🔥 - -

Casual Monday 🖤 It was so cold outside and I haven’t been feeling good so I decided that ice water and sweats were needed today. Who needs to dress up and wear leggings anyway?!? This was perfect for the 25 degree weather and my #peteacher life 🖤

I’ve been dithering about whether to post this photo but I was SO HAPPY with how I looked on Saturday night that I think I have to. I struggle so much with how I look. Some days I hate how I look, fiercely and deeply. So I want to capture the moments where I look in the mirror and think, “That is me and I’m so glad.” Sometimes I forget those days exist and I think it’s a disservice to myself to let that keep happening.

You know what it feels like to give up, keep going! ❤️ Small changes and consistency win the long term fitness race. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about working with yourself where you’re are at that moment. My head injury changed everything about 5 weeks ago. Some days like today are extra hard and I’m not feeling well at all so I stretch my body, calm my overworked brain, and take some deep breaths. Work with yourself where you are, but KEEP GOING ❤️

Friends and family ask me “why don’t you post photos of yourself?” I guess there are several reasons. Primarily, it’s more so because I’m afraid of my reflection. I’m not sure where that fear comes from. Probably from past bullying. Even as an adult I’m still afraid to see myself in pictures and I try to avoid mirrors. Distorted self image problems I guess. I can’t see what other people see and sometimes it does bother me a bit...why is my view of myself so distorted whereas others see me as perfectly fine? I tend to take photos of things that reflect my personality than what I look like. If I were to take a selfie, well...they will remain in a private stash for quite sometime lol. #personal #clouds #selfesteem #bodydysmorphia #photography #cloudy #mondaythoughts #lowselfesteem #bodyimageissues #bodyimage

So I usually do my best to camouflage these hips. The other day someone said "what happened to you tiny waist and grande hips and ass"..... honestly been insecure about my hips since I was a teenager. Why when I see other women with the same shape do I find them beautiful and sexy? However when I see the same shape in myself I do all to hide it? I try my best to be positive but honestly some days I wish I had an average shape. I don't even call them hips I call them wings because they are so prominent. #bodyissues #curves #hips #issues #tinywaistbighips #itsamindset #monday #clothescanhidealot #wings #curvesfordays #hips #bodyimage #bodyimageissues

Weekends look different now but I wouldn’t change them for the world 🌎 On Christmas Day our guy will be ten months old and he’s so much fun to hang out with. This morning we laughed, giggled, and played in a bubble bath 🛀 because life is about seizing all the little moments and not letting them go to waste ♥️

10.12.17 | 14 DAYS LEFT! 🎅🏼🎄 So excited! Today had been really good for a Sunday. Sundays are generally boring and depressing, but today I went to eat at my grandma's with my father. We had a nice time, and then my father and I went to a little shop and then to the Cat Café 😻 where we had a drink and something to eat (I ate a paaaaaaancake 😱💜). It was lovely. And very almost disorder free. 💪🏻 #mentalhealth #mentalillness #anxiety #distortedmirror #dysmorphia #bodyimageissues #ed #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexia #anorexianervosa #anorexiarecovery #recovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #fabulousnotfat #staystrong

I was scared...what if I fail? I was scared...what if I can’t continue my results? I was scared...what are people going to think??? And then, I DOVE IN and threw all those doubts away. .

For close to two years I’ve worked an online health and coaching business. I’ve met amazing people. I’ve helped my family financially. I grew my son healthfully and postpartum had energy and spunk to keep up with him and his needs. I run around with hundreds of high school students weekly and can keep up with their shenanigans. I help others get results. I feel good. I work from home on the weekends and whenever I can fit in pockets of time I work from my phone. .
.
Trust me, I was scared too but I wouldn’t change it for the world because my world has been forever changed. Let’s chat if any of this sounds interesting to you! 💛

Take off your Mask Tabitha...
Well that's is the words i wish i could have listened too a very many multiple months ago. But...i didn't and thats ok. My eyes or heart were not ready to see the extremities yet, and, this is ok.
I had to be hit rock bottom to see to be woken up. That is the thing here you see. Seeing and feeling this all is far more painful than pushing it all down and not addressing. I always chose the easy way out. Ortharexia took me away from my home, family and friends for 6 wks and also robbed me of many years. I know what i am dealing with and i admit it to myself as 6 months ago i said "eating disorder? I don't have an eating disorder"
I no longer will hide my story as what i was feeling on the inside was a reflection in my physical body so all the eyes knew but i wouldnt admitt. The shame and guilt closed my throat chakra down and didnt voice. I am not hiding anymore.
No one needs to hide. We all see what your soul feels if we really think about it.
Open honesty. My mantra.

YOU CAN! You can do it! Your body is capable of changing! I’m here to tell you that! Trust me, I questioned it too! .
.
I was fearful beyond belief of having a baby for many reasons but one of them being my body. There are YEARS of self esteem issues and LAYERS upon LAYERS of personal body image issues that have been built up inside of me. I finally found programs that don’t consume my life, I still get results, and still live (Read: eat the cookie if you want it but not every cookie you want while skipping your workouts for months). I’m currently 9 month’s postpartum and constantly a work in progress. I spend 3-4 hours per WEEK working out, I eat to fuel my body, I drink a superfood shake daily to help ensure I get all of the nutrition I’m missing from my food (everyone is missing something), and I’ve changed my mindset full circle. Each day is an opportunity to work on me and I will take it!!! ♥️

Day 7: Full body picture (still behind☺) Three weeks after my 18th birthday, I was at the store trying my prom dress on one last time before bringing it home. Panic arose as I tried to effortlessly pull the dress up over my hips and back side. "Omg, its tighter than last time. I'm getting fat." Before that experience, I had never had any body image issues, and it stopped there. Those new hips of mine only brought me up to 107 pounds. It always pained me to see and hear about all these people who struggle with body image because I could not relate to them. I never understood what it felt like to truly be uncomfortable in your own skin. I felt disconnected to them.
About a year ago, I believe that I began to gain "comfort weight". For 2 years I have been in a relationship with an amazing guy. For the first time in my life, stress levels have decreased and I am comfortable. But I began to hate how I looked in the mirror. Most of my clothes stopped fitting and I wanted to become a tooth pick again. I found my worth on the other side of the mirror and I was not okay with that.
I acknowledged that I was getting older and that maybe my body was creating its true form. If this was the case, then there was no point in stressing about it or I would be battleing it for the rest of my life.
I could not accept that I might end up hating myself for my body's natural process. So instead of giving into "self hate" I made a conscious decision to not allow myself to fall into its trap. I am an artist at heart who loves rounded edges. I changed my perspective to see my curves as an addition to my new favorite sculpture- me!

Happy here and now. Appreciate what you have now and appreciate today 🖤 Don’t get so overwhelmed with planning the future that you forget to enjoy the present 🖤 Coffee & weekend vibes are filling our household, post workout of course because goals don’t stop just because it’s Saturday! 🖤

I’ve been underestimating myself so much this past year. I have overcome so many demons in life but this is one that I’m still struggling with. #bodyimageissues #worthiness #art #insecurity #motherhood

You know those wild Friday nights where you make baby food and get in bed by 9? 🎉 It’s a real party over here. I’d like to blame it on the baby but let’s be honest, I’ve been a morning person for years which cuts my nights shorter! Happy weekend to you all!

I’ve been struggling for a few days with this self confidence thing. Some days i feel like I’m happy and some days i just want to be a skinny girl. It doesn’t help that i hate these leggings. Some days i feel like I’ll never measure up to other women, and i hate it. I’m supposed to be strong and show self love, but to be real...i struggle. I’m human. I’m a woman. Its one of those things where you fake it till you make it right?!

& so will you. ✌🏽

Let’s be honest, it’s been a long 2017 ♥️ I don’t have to spend a ton of time in the kitchen to stay on plan with my eating and I’m never hungry if I eat all I should to get my optimal results. I through this together in less than 3 minutes last night and enjoyed it today. Fuel your body properly, eat clean foods, and watch your life change. You’ll feel so amazing! Trust me, I didn’t believe it either. Along with those “silly at home workouts” 😉 Happy Friday eve friends ♥️

Just in case no one told you: even when you recover your relationship with your body, you're not going to love it all the time. You're not always going to feel good about yourself. Some days you're going to feel uncomfortable and out of place. You're going to want out of your body. Your body may not feel like your own on some days. And you're going to have bad body image days where you feel like everyone is looking at you and judging the way you look.

That's normal. And it doesn't mean you haven't reached body acceptance or body positivity or body respect or whatever else you want to call it. It doesn't mean you're destined to hate your body forever. It just means that in a certain moment, you're feeling some feelings and you're taking it out on your body.
Embrace it. Those moments when you're feeling less than great about your body help you grow. It helps you realize how wonderful and special your body truly is.

---------------THE NATURAL BODY?---------------
.
My message to you today is to embrace the natural body. This message pertains specifically to the subjective appearance of the body. What I find fascinating is that the "natural" body with a little bit of fat on it is more desirable in most surveys I've come across than the excessively sculpted bodies. A problem with surveys like this is that it's hard to separate who is in tune with their "naturalness" versus those who have learned to prefer the "fitness model" look.
-
I personally find the female fitness model look less appealing than a normal look where the woman has more fat on her stomach. We have learned to hate our fat rolls. I remember my goal was to not have any fat rolls when I sat down...lol.
-
But we are getting a bit carried away. The woman on the left is fat more attractive to me and why this matters is because I believe there may be some health benefit too that my intuition sees in this body type. I'll do a post on men soon, promise. What are your thoughts?

I see this pic and I know I'm slimmer than I used to be. What's sad is when I actually look in the mirror I see myself as that big girl still😔 #bodyimageissues

I get a lot of these questions: “how do I start loving myself?” “what do I start with?” “how did you start?”
They all answer get answered with a giant fat: I don’t know.
I wish I had each individual analysis as to how and where you should start, what the easiest way is for you and how to go about it without making you uncomfortable.
But truth of the matter is, I just woke up one day and did it. I was so fucking inspired and hated myself so much for not being able to lose more weight to the point where it wasn’t an option for me anymore (maybe?) I’m not quite sure. I just did it. I woke up and I did it. It was that simple, the process that unveiled became more complex but waking up and starting was just being inspired and following the bread crumbs of curiosity.
I don’t know how you should do it or when, I don’t know how to make you love yourself. I don’t know how to make it easy or how to simplify it for you. I wish I could snap my fingers and make you realize how amazing you are but I can’t. I wish I could take away all your bad stuff and replace it with positivity, love and wonder.
I can only hope I inspire you to follow your own curious heart, inspire you to dive into the unknown, inspire you to challenge yourself and remind you that regardless of you do it or not, that you’re a human being with a story that deserves to be told. That’s deserves light and love. That deserves to be seen.
I can only hope 🧡

Obsession 🌿
I used to be obsessed with losing weight and getting abs. I thought once I hit a certain goal weight and get abs I'll be happy and worthy. That somehow, magically, all my insecurities and self doubt will go away.
But it doesn't work like that.
I would workout excessively and obsess about calories. I would get upset when I realised I still have tummy fat. I thought I was being healthy, but I forgot about my mental health along the way.
The truth is, losing weight won't make me happy or feel worthy because there will always be more weight that I'd want to lose. Losing weight didn't help me achieve life goals. There's so much more to life than obsessing about abs and weight.
You are worthy the way you are and are capable of being happy without having to drastically change your body. Society equates being lean and having abs to beauty. But beauty is different for everyone!! Beauty can be intelligence, compassion, drive. And I'm sure you are these things. Let's stop equating beauty and health to our bodies only. Our bodies are all different and what someone else's healthy is, may not be yours. And that's fine!! Do whatever makes YOU feel happy, healthy and confident because this is YOUR life. And don't forget, your body is amazing and capable of doing so much! It is nothing to be ashamed of!! 🌴☀️

Ortharexia...becoming more known. I am very common to this. It become my BFF for years. Until it too me rock bottom afew weeks ago to completely make me stop for 6 weeks. It was the most traumatic stressful experience ive ever encountered. Now i feel the pain of the stress i was physically causing to my physical body. I wasnt in body for years. And the very most thing scarying me now is like i do not even know this body or what even to do with it or give it anymore. Its like a whole new programming system to install. Yep..like the 1st time you buy a computer and u have to install everything all over again.
But as i feel been at the rock bottom of the sea i see the only way is up right?
Each day i try focus to move forward but come to relize today this ED part of self is me to. I have to make friends with all parts of self but i want healthy me to be conductor.
By all means its challenging. Its fucking challenging. Excuse the french but it is. It is not just about the food. Not at all. To experience it you would know. I hope to reach others as one day you will see my face and name TABITHA SCHUTZ out there as a Eating Disorder recovery coach helping others.

In the mean time i am dealing with my stuff and i no longer hide this part of me.
I will not be ashamed of what people think or say anymore. This is all of me. All of me. I know so many people knew what i was going through. Words did not have to be spoken. So now i confess...this is me and i am starting to own this stuff to overcome.
I will help others too. I want to help others and me too ❤
