Body positivity 🌿
I used to be terrified of looking like I had extra weight on me. I'd do everything to appear smaller, suck my tummy in and try and flex whenever I noticed someone was looking at me. I was so ashamed that even though I workout a lot, I still had extra fat on my tummy. I thought people would judge me for that and think "she isn't working out properly or eating properly" . But you know what? I am. I'm doing what makes ME happy. I'm not here to please other people. Your life is meant to be lived for you, not anyone else. I know that you are your own worst critic, but that needs to stop. You are doing so amazing. Look at yourself in the mirror, look at your insecurities and tell that voice in your head to shut up and stop telling you that you're supposed to be insecure about those things, because you are beautiful! There is nothing wrong with your body.
Posting a photo like this is still weird to me, In the past I would never have posted these photos because I wasn't wearing any make up, my double chin is showing and my tummy looks weird. But there's no point in being so harsh on myself. I now know that there's nothing wrong with being the shape I am. This is how I look naturally and I'm proud of it. People come in all different shapes and sizes, there is no "right size" to be. So please don't be so hard on yourself. Stop picking apart photos of yourself where you think you look bad! Because you don't ! People in ads are always photoshopped and have photos taken from their best angles. That isn't real so please don't use those photos as motivation because they're unrealistic. Just love the skin you're in and you'll be so much happier!! I hope you all have a lovely and positive day 🌴☀️
