when your body becomes your best friend,
you treat her better,
you’re kinder, gentler,
you’re more thoughtful.
you accept your bestfriend, partner, parent as who they are.
You love them as they are.
Why not treat your body the same?
When I accepted myself, every part:
- my flabby legs that hug lovingly
- my stomach pouch that holds my now beautiful ****and powerful uterus
- my thick thighs, that are powerful
1️⃣ I began to eat better.
I stopped fasting which turned into binge eating. I stopped being obsessed with dieting (paleo, keto, calorie counting, macros etc...).
I started to eat with intention and mindfulness. I no longer have cravings and I eat to FEEL good.
2️⃣ I began to start exercising *regularly*.
I used to weightlift, hired trainers, bought programs... I obsessed about looking a certain way. I hated it but I did it bc I felt guilty. But bc I hated it, I wasn’t consistent. When I found ways to move that I LOVE, I began to do it regularly! Willingly! I found love in yoga, meditation, spin, hiking and snowboarding ❤️
3️⃣ I began living.
When I finally accepted myself, my body and who I am, I was finally able to start living life fully without having the subconscious feeling of not being enough. I now eat with intention and move with intention. I have fun.
Treat your body like your bestfriend and accept everything that it is. It took me 7 years to get here.
I love myself
I am worthy
I am enough
