Today I want to talk about body confidence, In 2016 body shaming is possibly at its highest it’s ever been, you can’t seem to look anywhere without some form of body shaming happening from walking down the street to clicking on your phone its everywhere and impossible to get away from!
So today I wanted to share with you why you should LOVE YOUR BODY and not to buy into any of the crap you read about or see on a daily basis. You are who you are if you love working out good for you if you would rather have a yummy take away then right on sister me too, I have never been one to go to the gym and I think its safe to say I never will, But hey look I’m happy with who I am and here are some reasons why you should too….
EMBRACE THE BODY YOU HAVE!
Never feel like you have to change your body to fit into or look good in certain clothes, buy clothes that match the body type you already have! Less stress more fashion fun! If something doesn’t fit go a size up, who’s going to know it’s not a size 10 anyway? Don’t worry!
ENJOY THE FOOD!
Food is meant to be enjoyable and tasty so if you want that burger but everyone else around you is eating a salad, fuck it get the damn burger, why not? An hour later you will still be full and happy when the rest of the people around you are only dying for a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar! You can eat healthily and be healthy but don’t cut out the things you love most, treating yourself to that burger isn’t going to put a massive a dent into your healthy eating plan!
MOST WOMEN HAVE STRETCH MARKS!
Look it happens, it’s part of being a woman, they are not the most attractive looking things but they are natural and in your head you think you are the only person on the planet that has them but you’re not! Everyone has and will properly get stretch marks at some stage in their life! Be proud of your stripes! Look even some of the world’s top models suffer from stretch marks, no big deal!
DON’T BUY INTO THE MEDIA!
Seriously don’t bother picking up them magazines that tell you, you can get a flat tummy in a month or that this cream and that cream will get rid of cellulite or that this cream will give you long-lasting perfect skin, don’t buy into any of that crap, because that’s what it is CRAP there will be something different next month and the month after that and the month after that, it’s their job to make you feel less confident and for you to go “Oh, I think I need that” when you really don’t!
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
Of course a part of body confidence is loving yourself, Love the person you are, everyone has something they don’t like about themselves and if you want to fix that something, then do it for you, don’t do it for anyone else, you won’t love it as much if you do it for someone else! Take care and be proud of the person you are and if anyone says shit to you just remember the reason they are being nasty is because they obviously aren’t happy with who they are or else they are just assholes! Just keep that chin help up high and that middle finger held higher!
Lots of Love,
