How gorgeous is this?! Stretch marks are so normal and absolutely nothing to be ashamed of 🌈🌈🌈
Repost @strutbymic (@get_repost)

🌟#rg @slaybymic🌟Cinta Tort Cartró, a 21-year-old artist in Barcelona, Spain, is doing her part to celebrate the parts of a woman that have long been considered “flaws.” In a photo series called #ManchoYNoMeDoyAsco, Cartró, who goes by @Zinteta on Instagram, is reimagining stretch marks as painted rainbows🌈🌈. “Ever since we’re little, they tell us to hate everything that we have on our bodies, and constantly try to eliminate what, to them, isn’t normal: blemishes, freckles, hairs and an endless number of other things, and... stretch marks,” she wrote in a caption. “I spent years hating [my stretch marks] and trying to find a way to get rid of them, until I realized that if I wasn’t accepting them I wasn’t accepting myself.” In an interview with Mic, Cartró said that the reason why she uses such vibrant colors and something as fabulous as glitter to highlight these totally normal yet stigmatized features is because she wants to show off what plenty of people don’t want to believe exists: “I always use color to break with what they’ve forced us to believe isn’t beautiful or real, when all of this is real.”

I've come into your world, now you'll chase me around the globe for it ✨🔥💞

Why are your legs so big? I have had his question asked so many times, especially lately. I have decided to answer this question here...for all of you who are curious!! We all have things about ourselves that we wish were different or we wish that we could change. So even after all of the blood, sweat and tears that I put in to lose over 350 pounds, my body still needs some work. I have/had a massive amount of excess skin. It hurts. A lot. I carried a lot of weight in my legs before I lost the weight, which now results in having a TON of excess skin on my legs...still making them big. People carry their weight different, and when you go though a massive weight loss, the amount of excess skin you have is different for everyone. For me, I have a lot. I do plan on having my legs done in the future. To be honest I am so ready right now to have it done. I still feel insecure about my legs, but at the end of the day, they are what they are and I am learning to love myself...my body included! I am not going to sit here and focus on everything that I wish was different. I am proud of my journey. I am proud of the changes my body has gone through. Just like with weight loss, I am taking skin removal surgery and this part of my journey one day at a time! You can't keep moving forward if you keep looking back! So for now, this is me and this is my body and I am working damn hard to fully love myself..my legs included! .

I didn't choose the thick life, but the thick life definitely chose me.
I spent my whole life wanting to be thin & skinny. I don't want that anymore luckily. Because that goal was destroying me in so many ways.
Now I just want to be my healthiest & happiest self, and I hope that's what you want for yourselves too✨

•💛20 years old: Mix of binge eating followed by days of "cleansing" aka: not eating. I never worked out, but I never thought I was "thin enough". I could see my ribs, but that was always my goal. Back then, I NEVER thought my outlook was unhealthy.
•💛23 years old: just had a baby, gained 95 pounds. If you've ever met me, you know I have a VERY small frame. Simple daily actions like walking up and down the stairs felt difficult and exhausting. I went on a diet and consumed only 20 grams of carbs/day (I did this for 2 years straight, and yes I was VERY strict about those 20 grams). This was unhealthy! For the next 10 years, I couldn't find balance. Bottom line: I wasn't happy.
•💛36 years old: I'm not striving to "see my ribs", or get a "thigh gap", or a "bikini bridge". I'm certainly not trying to get rid of a "hip dip" either. Seriously, who comes up with these damn beauty standards? 🙄👊🏼 I'm happy, I eat intuitively and work out regularly. I'm not trying to achieve a physical goal, I'm enjoying life. I fell in love with fitness when I stopped paying attention to the trends. 💖I don't need to prove to anyone that I'm "real". I don't need to take a highly unflattering photo and post it captioning "look at me, I'm imperfect, I'm real, I love my flaws,..." Honestly, I'm here to tell you this: Strength FEELS great! 🏆Body image trends will come and go, ignore them! Be motivated and inspired by what you can do, rather than by how you look. Life is too short to worry about all the petty stuff. If you're here for fitness motivation, then have faith, and take it from me: you CAN do it! 🙌🏽Fitness should be about health and strength. You've got one life, take control and give it your best effort. Screw the beauty standards, don't lose your focus: get up, work out, eat healthy, FEEL the strength, and do it for YOU!🏆💖-

Check out the awesomely inspiring @laurenneate - " It's actually taken me 7 years to get the balls to do this, but yes I have no hair 👶🏼 I found out I had alopecia when I was 13 and ever since I've hid it with hair extensions, then wigs. To some people it might be a surprise and to others you may have already known but I'm making this post for myself, to show myself that it's okay to accept it and not hide behind this idea of looking "normal" all of the time. This isn't a sad post to me at all, it's a huge weight off my shoulders, and that's why this isn't intended to be a sob story 👼🏼 I'm so incredibly lucky to have the people that I do around me right now, so to my family, friends and my boyfriend @lukeoliverharris , thank you for loving me in my egg form 🥚

For those of you who aren't aware, alopecia universalis is an auto immune disease that means my body rejects my own hair follicles, it can happen to anyone at anytime so I think it's important to bring awareness to it #alopecia 👶🏼
-
For everyone asking I get my wigs from either @uniwigs or @divaswigs 👱🏻‍♀️👩🏻👧🏻 ALSO millions of questions about my eyebrows, I use @soapandglory Archery and @benefitcosmeticsuk Ka-Brow "

There's a really simple formula to getting everything you want in your life. It's so easy that many people are afraid to do it or spend to much time overthinking it. The formula is this: Just Ask. 💃🏼 Sounds simple right? Don't go around letting fear rule you. I have first hand experience with allowing the bully in my brain to take over. The quickest way to get out of that head space is to ask. Ask the questions. E-mail random people on the internet who inspire you. Join FB groups. Get to know successful people in the space you want to be in. Spend time and align yourself with people who get you. Find your tribe, whether that be online or in real life. Just ask. It's easy, so easy that you will see you goals pan out in the way you aligned yourself with them. But you have you have to ask first. Then execute. More on this and other ways to tackle self-doubt will be on the blog. ✌🏽 •

Who is this girl with all that confidence?
I can't believe it's me!
It took me so long to love my body as it is but I'm so glad that I do. I choose to love myself every damn day, no matter what.
You should too.

** WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS ** Damn, this has been a tough lesson to learn in life… but oh-so liberating.

You can’t control or change other people and their opinions.

You CAN’T please everyone.

And trying to do so will keep you stuck.

YOU are your own business - how you act and the attitudes with which you face the world.

That’s the stuff you can change.

But other people? Waste of energy and time.

Everyone has their own issues, their own ‘stuff’ and this is often displaced onto others.

How they perceive you is a reflection of THEM, THEIR beliefs and attitudes - it really has nothing to do with you as long as you are aligned and being true to yourself.

Keep your side of the street clean; have you acted in a way that doesn’t feel right to you? That’s the bit you can look at and change.

If you live your life trying to please everyone, you will continue to stay stuck, unhappy and grow resentful.

You don’t need to take on other people’s emotions and attitudes. You can say ‘no thanks; that’s your stuff not mine.’ Want to take some you-time but worried people will call you selfish?

Want to go swimming but afraid people will laugh and judge?

Want to follow your business dream but scared of ridicule and criticism?

Want to share how you feel honestly and openly but fearful of backlash?

It sounds easier said than done, but so what if they do call you selfish, laugh, judge, criticise, react badly?
That is THEIR stuff.

It’s triggering something in them.

The reasons don’t matter - they do not belong to you and you don’t have to take them on emotionally or practically.

Remember there’s a line between considering other people and people-pleasing.

Be YOU. 💕

Self confidence ✨
People who know me probably don't even know this but I actually struggle a lot with self confidence and am very insecure and it's not to do with how I see myself physically, but more with who I am as a person. I often feel extremely anxious when I have to talk to people because I have a lot of self doubt and negative thinking habits. It has lead to me analyzing everything I say, putting myself down, and rather listening than speaking. I think it has a lot to do with trying to be someone else, or putting up a persona that I think other people would like me to be. Instead of just trying to be me and being okay that I'm not like other people. For example I'm actually quite an introverted person (I think?) but for years I've been trying to force myself to be extroverted and it still makes me uncomfortable when I'm trying to be that person. And I think by now I have done it for so long that I don't even know how to be who I actually am because I never know if I'm actually just uncomfortable in extroverted situations because I have a low self esteem? So I don't know it kinda feels like a battle in my head because I want to accept who I am but I'm not even exactly sure who that person is. I don't know if anyone else gets this or can relate? But anyway, lately I have been spending a lot of time thinking about it and watching TED talks on building self confidence (which really helps for anyone else struggling with this) and just learning to catch myself in my bad thoughts and turning them around. I also try and let myself say and do what comes naturally instead of repressing it to see what happens. I've realized that it's going to take a while and that being self confident and implementing good habits takes practice. And learning to be okay with who you are or even to love who you are really doesn't happen over night. I do think that this lifestyle of eating healthy and staying active helps a lot as it helps you to strengthen your mind. I think it's important to remember however that being happy with how you look on the outside isn't going to magically give you confidence on the inside ✨

Miss living by the sea. Miss all the midnight walks to the beach. All the times listening to the waves talking to you, the winding messing your hair and caressing your face. All the toughts that visit you,all the experiences you had.

This is one of the first times I've ever felt confident in a dressing room/dressing room lighting, which is surprising to me because I do not look my best. I haven't been eating as healthy as I would like or working out as much but honestly it has been nice to just relax and enjoy life, and I know I will be able to get back on track within the next week! Learning to be body confident no matter what my shape is is an amazing feeling!

Nothing like digging through a bunch of old photos to make you realize how far you’ve come. It may not look like much, but I distinctly remember the moment when that photo on the left was taken. I felt so insecure, and uncomfortable with my body, and not to mention I was sucking in to the point of not being able to breathe 😂
.
I’ve definitely come a long way since then. Falling in love with fitness was probably the single best thing that’s ever happened to me. It gave me the confidence to pursue all the experiences and opportunities I’ve had thus far. If I hadn’t taken that leap of faith, I know my life would have not ended up the same.
.
Definitely would not have had the confidence to apply to my dream university, to travel the world (29 countries and counting), and definitely would not have found myself pursuing a career in fitness, as my own boss no less 💥
.
My advice to anyone trying to get started would be to just take a small step each day. This shit takes time and you don’t have to go from point A to Z overnight. If everyday you take a baby step in the right direction, in a few months you’re going to find yourself way down the road of a path you could have never even imagined.
.
It all starts with a step 👟

Summer of honey-sweetness,
air like rosewater, sky to the tune of déjà vu.
Summer of learning to ebb & break
proudly like the tide,
Summer of stranger-safety,
of wild erratic say yes,
Yes,
say saltwater tastes more like taffy and less like tears here,
say
August knows the curves of the coast like the body of a hometown lover,
familiar like salt and sandalwood
in the vibrant cadence of mountain frame. 🎞 ft. @camillelumbreras @alexxandrawho @lior_allay on #35mmfilm #doubleexposure #oregoncoast #writeyourheartout #writewhatyoufeel
