Beauty and fashion vlogger @NabelaNoor has had enough with body-shaming comments. No matter what the content of her videos are — fashion, beauty or body positivity related — she consistently gets comments about her weight. “I have found that people feel like it’s their obligation, their duty, to let me know that I’m overweight,” Noor said in the above video posted to her YouTube page. “Sometimes I feel like, ‘Oh my gosh, should I just not post because I’m fat?’ … It’s as though I should just be in a closet, hidden away, and not come out until I am thin, or not come out until I am society’s definition of beauty.” The entire purpose of the video for Noor was to open up the conversation around fat-shaming and try to build a community of people who understand that trolls’ words don’t really matter. She added in an interview with @strutbymic: “My size, how I look and what I do with my body is my business. I hope people think twice before commenting on someone else’s weight/body because you never truly know where someone is on their journey.” 🙏👑✨

|| I like me || some days, you have to be your own biggest fan. Pep talk yo damn self like, "hello you are a freaking goddess. You are doing amazing things. Who cares what others say because I'm really fucking proud of who you are becoming, okay? Don't be sad, you got shit to do. Love you boo bear. Keep slayin alllll day."


But for real, now more so than ever as I evolve I realize women who aggressively support and encourage and uplift each other, DESPITE differences, GET. SHIT. DONE. and I'm gonna stick to hangin around those types. So you just stay over there throwin shade, I'll be soakin in the sun of getting shit done. Because I like me enough to know it doesn't matter one fucking bit if YOU like me or not. If you don't, you're wrong and I'm sorry. But hey- we all can't have good taste. ✌🏻 ❤️ 🍕 and this bad ass shirt is once again from @hawkfitnessapparel ! I say it every time but this is my new favorite from them hands down

I am half Chinese and I don't talk about that enough, and what's even shittier than that is I am considered one of the main body positive people representing Asians? How am I good enough? Where are all the Asians? 60% of the world are Asian and yet we are not represented. It's not just in England as well, I remember walking into a shop in Hong Kong where only one out of 6 models in the store were Chinese. And it's not seen as a problem because body positivity doesn't exist in China, not even Hong Kong which is more westernised.

I'll be honest, it's not from lack of trying. I've written for a Singaporean magazine and I actually went on Hong Kong radio last year discussing body positivity on air for the first time in Chinese history with @curvasian - but it's just so difficult because its such a non conversation, that people don't know it is a missing conversation. In Asia, you are fat, you are skinny and whatever you look like is not just up for public debate but relevant in EVERY conversation.

My race has always been a complicated issue for me and frankly the only girls who seem to get it are my Hong Kong friends. Some are mixed, some are completely Chinese but all of them get it! I can talk about either side of my culture and they know what I'm talking about. Other than that, I've always felt alone.

I could tell you a lot of stories, like how I didn't know I counted as a POC for YEARS cause a white person once told me that term was reserved for people with actual colour to their skin. Or the time my friends called me a chink casually. I had never heard this word so I myself started using it casually, thinking it was just a shortening of the word Chinese because why would my "friends" call me a derogatory term? Or even something as small as the fact that a friend once had my name in her contacts followed by a Chinese man... because my race is ALWAYS relevant.

To be honest, it's overdue and they need to be addressed, so I have. I've written a column for @theunedit where I could express my complete thoughts: "Being Not White, But White Enough". Click the link in my bio to read the full thing.

I watched an Oprah interview the other day and she was asked what scares her the most. Her response really resonated with me because it just proved that Oprah is just a normal gal, like the rest of us. She said that the thing that she fears most is being questioned about her weight, as it's something that she is battled with throughout her life. As women we are constantly judged based on our size and the way we look. We are told to not eat too much in front of men (on dates and so forth) as it's not lady-like. We are constantly told to be beautiful, we have to fit a certain mould and it's wrong. Point, blank, period. I am not ashamed to say that I love food and although I may have not had a healthy relationship with eating in the past, I was able to turn that around. I spent many years being scared of losing weight because I didn't know how I would survive without the food that I love. So now that I have managed to lose the weight, I refuse to be scared of anything else. I was craving chocolate today and I ate it, it was delicious and I'm not scared to say that. I went swimming last night and I'm going to the gym tomorrow. I've ate super clean all day minus one slip-up, but to be honest, that's my biggest slim-down secret. I'm not scared to eat what I really want, I'm not scared to train hard in the gym, I'm not scared to miss out on cake at party if I really don't deserve it, I'm not scared of what people think about my body and I refuse to be scared of calling my body beautiful, because I worked bloody hard for this. In the picture on the left I am enjoying lasagne and chips and was caught in the act. I'm not scared of sharing who I was with you all because she made me who I am today! 120 pounds lost naturally and maintained for four years 💪🏼#real #bodypos #bodypositive #weightloss #fitness #slimdownwithsue #womenwhoworkout

EDIT: YOU'RE STILL MISSING THE POINT. I AM NOT INSPIRATION/ GOALS/ BENDY . FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE PLEASE READ THE GODDAMNED CAPTION. -------
I wear privileged skin.
This is something I've wanted to talk about for quite some time.
I wanted to talk about my loss of personal identity, that every time I've been confused for, or blatantly called a "white girl" how much that fucked my self identity and pushed me into further lack of knowledge of my own self. That I was force-fed another culture and lost mine, and what that can do to a person.
------------
NONE of that shit fucking matters. NOT RIGHT NOW and maybe not ever till we fix what the fuck is happening out there.
At the end of the day, I'm complaining because I go into a room, with the privilege of being treated like a white person, even though I am not, I'm complaining because it isn't until they see my last name, or hear the accent in mine and my parents voice that they know my truth. And though there are "negative" psychological things that arise from that benefit, it's still a benefit and it's still a privilege.
Black people don't get to walk into a room and be mistaken for some other culture or classification that may help them get a job, or get out of a dangerous situations.
Black people don't get a lot of things, that I do.
Hell, even a majority of latinos don't get the same things I do.
If I had a quarter for every time I heard "you don't even sound like a foreigner" I would have been able to pay for my citizenship much longer ago.
Privileges
Privileged
Skin
All skin
And none of us got to choose ours
What the fuck is happening out there?
#blacklivesmatter and I'm sorry that I can't stop the hatred. I cried after watching the POTUS disgustingly avoid and put blame everywhere else but where it belonged. I'm sorry. I'm SO SORRY. -----

Spending another day hating your body is another day where you don't realise your power #bodypositivememes

Love this post by the wonderful fit mom @_mamas_getting_fit - "I shared this on my other page, but had to share it here to spread the #bopo 💕 I've been working my butt off to become healthier and fitter. For myself and for my kids. But let's be real for a minute.
My body isn't the same as it was 12 years ago. And it won't ever be. I have separated stomach muscles, I have these wonderful shimmering stripes on my stomach otherwise known as "stretch marks." 🙄 I don't know about you, but I much prefer shimmer stripes. 🤷🏻‍♀️ My kids asked me about them. "What are those stripes? What are they from?" I strongly believe there is power in our words. Especially the words we choose to use in front of our children. So I told them "when I got to grow you in my tummy, these pretty, sparkling lines appeared. How cool is that? Aren't they pretty??" And they all agreed. My eldest son even asked if he'd get any sparkly bits on his tummy. 😂😍 Society has this habit of making us feel bad about things that naturally happen to our bodies as we get older or as life happens. But I'm changing that perception, starting with my kids. 💕 how about you? 😘 I'll be fitter, stronger and healthier but I'll also be uniquely and wonderfully me. Shimmer stripes and all. "

I'm the girl who HATES other people taking pictures of me, I hate the lack of control of it and i cannot stand seeing them. It triggers my anxiety like you wouldn't believe! But i am really trying to learn to love me, as i am, without criticising myself. I also hate taking mirror selfies so everytime i do, I feel like i am saying F*** you to that bitch on my shoulder who likes to put me down. No, I'm not 'skinny', my thighs love eachother so they like to touch, my arms wobble, I have a chubby face (always that kid that Nanas grabbed the cheeks of!) I have big hips & celulite. (Not all visible due to bad lighting so i will post more)why is all that negative? Who told us it was bad? My point is, I don't post for likes or for people to compliment me, I am doing this for me, to fight my own demons & to try and show women (And men) that we are enough cos i don't want to live in a world of body shaming. YOU. ARE. PERFECT. JUST. THE. WAY. YOU. ARE. I'm probably one of the most self conscious people there is but i have to win this battle, treat my body with respect and love it. We ALL should do that! You gotta just do you, boo! Have a beautiful day!

Sexy is not a size, and your value is not measured in pounds.
All bodies are beautiful 😍

⁉️

Before you go and compare yourself to someone else's perfect Instagram picture, I want you to think about this video. Pay attention to how I reposition, fix my boobs, angle myself, adjust my bodysuit, place my hands, lean forward, find the best way to angle my head, fix my hair, suck my cute lil tummy in, etc. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS BEHIND THE SCENES OF THOSE PICTURES YOU COMPARE YOURSELF TO. THIS. So next time you find yourself thinking you wish you looked like her or him, remember that they probably spent 30 mins with a tripod and selfie light trying to get that perfect shot. 👌

Working on some routines I can do on my bike. Sprints, hills, etc. Nutella wanted to help. Or rather, she wanted me to hear her "roar" 😉🦁😆

I have a question for you guys.

Okay, so recently, my good friend, @pretty_good asked me what my inner child wants.
And I answered - Acceptance.
I was also talking with @breezeomatic and he asked me what I want now.
I answered - Consistency of Balance.
My question for you is - How?
How do you find inner acceptance?
How do you attain a consistency of balance in your daily life?
I'm open and taking all suggestions!!! --- Photo by @kelsey_allise

Moving right along with my fiery desire to continue serving and building my community, I'm planning to launch my first ever four-week workshop starting this September in PORTLAND! But I can't do it without you! Let me know you're interested by following the link in my bio and taking a super short survey so we can get this baby rolling. ••
It's going to be an interactive yoga+wellbeing workshop where we will focus on yoga, breath, and there will be classes, but there will also be talks and exercises exploring the way we view and value ourselves, as well as looking at how the quality of our minds directly determines the quality of our lives (including our physical bodies). I hope I get the oppprtunity to serve you in this way! I'm REALLY excited about it 😊 Questions/concerns? Feel free to ask! ♡

No super long inspirational caption today. Just that I'm happy. 💪🏼🏖🏋🏼‍♀️

confidence is looking at your fat rolls, stretch marks, pudgy stomach, acne, frizzy hair, crooked teeth, and body hair and saying, "enh, screw it, i'm beautiful." #confident #bodypositive #effyourbeautystandards #nobodyshame #bodypositivity #bodypos #thisisme
