I've had more girls lately than ever, message me and ask "how I got rid of cellulite, extra skin on my legs, yadda-yadda." A girl emailed me, saying that "her boyfriend was poking at her legs... telling her she needed to tighten them up like these other fitness girls do." I felt sick to my stomach reading it. Because NO WOMAN deserves to be called out like that. I then, felt a responsibility to make this post.. simply because this "guy" classified me as one of the so-called fitness girls that he referred to.
Newsflash: that skin you poked at on your girlfriends legs? I've got it too.
I love my extra skin.
That ounce of cellulite.
Nawhh more like cellu-LIT mama.
It makes me feel real, and human.
I used to be 50 pounds heavier than I am now. I had cellulite then. Did losing weight help that? Nope. I've STILL got it, and I'm not about to act ashamed of it. I never would have posted this photo on the right because I was (at a time) self conscious of that extra love on the back of my legs.
We, as women, were created to hold body fat in certain places. That's HEALTHY and it's NORMAL. People have probably seen my legs looking like the right photo in person just as much as the left photo and THATS OKAY.
Own it, sister. And men, next time you want to open your mouth about what a woman should do with her body... you should just, NOT. Mkay? 😎✌🏼
We are human. And God forbid us have flaws.
We were not placed on this earth to lose sleep over cellulite, extra skin, healthy body fat, or whatever the hell you want to call it. And I won't stand to let another female feel otherwise.
