14 months ago I never would have imagined posting a picture like this. Hell I would never have even taken this picture. I would have looked at myself in the mirror and picked apart every part of my body and hated myself. Why?? Because as women, if we don't look like the models in the magazine's, if we dont wear a specific size or weigh a certain amount we aren't beautiful.
Today I can confidentially say that I don't give a fuck. I no longer care what size of jeans I wear, what the stupid number on the scale is or how many fucking calories I eat in a day. I care about being happy, healthy, strong and living a compassionate life. The next time you look in the mirror or at a photo and want to start criticizing yourself STOP. Stop and tell yourself this. "You are bold, you are beautiful, and you are brilliant. You are a goddess. There is no other woman like you because you are your own kind of woman." I started this entire thing because I'm an animal lover and wanted to save some animals. Never did i imagine this is where I would be today. I'm stronger, happier and more confident than ever. Not because I've lost some weight, simply because I've learned to love myself the way I've learned to love others. Unconditionally.
So, should you take anything from this post please take this. STOP dieting. STOP restricting yourself. STOP trying to eat under 1000 calories. STOP starving yourself. STOP hating yourself if you dont lose weight or if you only lose half a pound. STOP beating yourself up for having cake or chocolate. STOP picking yourself apart. STOP letting the scale define who you are or what your worth. LOVE YOURSELF completely. Every stretch mark, every pound, every wrinkle. Live your life and do what makes you happy 💜❤ #loveyourself #beconfident #fuckthescale #fuckbeautystandards #beyou #doyou #beauthentic #beyourownrolemodel #thereisnoperfectbody #youaregorgeous #youarebeautiful #youarebold #youareabadass #lookbeyondtheexterior #bewhoyouare #behappy #livelife #lovelife #unconditionally
