December 2017 I could barely STAND on my own 😳 I remember a time walking down the halls of the hospital and my dad had to literally hold my one side up while I held the railing on the other side because my legs were so weak and would barely hold me up!😳 I remember, when getting dressed and doing my hair took every little bit of energy out of me! I remember I had to ask for help getting my groceries in the house because I was soo WEAK! ...... I often talk about the internal strength this coaching opportunity has given me! I talk about the community and my anxiety, and how I’ve built confidence and happiness! BUT what I don’t talk much about is the PHYSICAL strength I’ve gained over the years! ..... I’ve worked so hard to build up my physical strength because I want to be able to HELP people! This past weekend proved to me how much strength I really have gained! As I lifted these huge branches and threw them onto the trailer, I realized how GRATEFUL I am for the physical strength I have gained! I’m grateful that I am physically ABLE to help my parents when trees come crashing down! I’m able to load and unload a huge trailer of branches and logs! I’m ABLE bodied and that is something I am grateful for! Because to be honest there were many days that I thought I was never going to be able to do these things again! ...... Everyday I realize that this opportunity has given me more and more to be grateful for!🙌💕

🥬Have you ever started a diet and been able to follow it the rest of your life?👵🏼 . . 👍🏼Don’t worry! Virtually everyone who has started a diet has stopped because they couldn’t follow the diet rules long term.🤯 . . 😧And guess what, when you diet, you gain weight! You might lose some weight initially, but once the diet ends metabolism slows and over eating usually happens next.😩 . . 🤷🏻‍♀️Why though? It’s how our body survives! Your body acts as if you are experiencing a famine. There’s no food around and your body wants to save energy and thus slows your metabolism.📉 . . 🥖Finally, when you are back off the diet, your body is so happy the famine is over and it’s time for a feast! Hunger cues go way up!👆🏽 . . 🙇🏻‍♀️Meanwhile, you are so disappointed in yourself for not being able to follow yet another diet and mad at yourself for being so hungry. You blame yourself and your poor willpower and your self-confidence decreases.🤦🏻‍♀️ . . 👉🏼Thing is, if instead of dieting if we just ate when we were hungry and stopped when we were full, you would stay at your biologically appropriate weight.😯 . . 😰It is SUPER HARD to change your biologically appropriate weight! If you want a smaller body than the one your genetics gave you, you are going to be spending most of your life trying to maintain it.🏃🏻‍♀️ . . 🙅🏻‍♀️Does that sound enjoyable to you? Would you rather spend time with your kids while they are young?👩‍👧‍👧 . . 💕Do you want to learn how to feel confident in the body your genetics gave you? Do you want to stop dieting and stop worrying that most foods cause weight gain? . . ✨See my link in bio for all the details! . . . . . . #nomorediets #bodypositivemom #diet #dietitianapproved #confidentmom #intuitiveeating #haes #momsofinstagram #antidiet #bodyimage #foodfreedom #ipreview via @preview.app

Motherhood changes us. It impacts every aspect of our lives and sometimes it feels like we can't explain it to some of our closest people.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ You are everchanging - You are a living, breathing thing that needs love and support just like everyone else. And like all living breathing things, you need nurturing.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ It’s just common sense that it’s easier to nurture others when you yourself feel nurtured. So, how do you nurture relationships (friendships, intimate relationships, etc.) when you yourself are exhausted, up all night, caring for others, not caring for yourself?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Needless to say, it ain’t easy. Motherhood ain't easy. So, if you feel yourself slipping, instead of beating yourself up about it, maybe cut yourself some slack? 💜 ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ What practices do you have that nurture yourself first? 👇🏻

Let’s talk about legs. It’s summer time. And that means shorts and skirts galore!! Did you know you can get healthy lean and sculpted legs just by walking!? It’s true! I don’t have the best legs by any means. I have some jiggle in my thighs and I’d say a soft butt 😂😂 but they work for me. I have enough muscle tone to feel strong and healthy. And I achieved this simply by walking outside 5x a week. I am happy with my semi solid summer legs 😂but what really matters is how I feel. Healthier. Stronger. More focused. What’s your favorite form of exercise? . #summerstyles #summerselfcare #loveyourself #loveyourbody #momblogger #bodypositivemom #bodypositiveattitude #selfcaredaily #selfcareisnotselfish #scsisterlove #bostonbusinesswomen #bohochicstyle #stylecollective #lovemylegs #summeroutfitideas #outfitfashion #healthylifestyle

🍕🍔🍩Do you worry that many foods cause weight gain? 👉🏼Tell me about it! . . 👩🏻‍💻These days, working as a registered dietitian nutritionist, I spend so much time helping moms unlearn diet culture messages! . . 🤪Some of you may have read this and thought, “Um, she’s crazy! Carbs cause weight gain. Everyone knows that!”😂 . . 😉If you thought something like that, no worries, I ain’t mad. I hear this all the time! But 👩🏻‍🌾I would never lie to you to you or anyone about nutrition info! . . 🧟‍♂️Diet culture messages about food make food scary! Can you think of the only food that diet culture says you can eat without guilt?……….. VEGGIES!🥦🥕🥬🍅 . . 😵What if you only ever ate veggies and nothing else? YOU WOULD DIE! For real though. You would. 🤔Does dying sound healthy? . . 🤯Changing your beliefs about food that hold you back from living a full happy and enjoyable life is exactly what I do with the moms I work with!💕 . . 🙋🏻‍♀️It takes practice and you might think I’m full of crap when I contradict the diet culture messages you are used to hearing. 💵Thing is, people make a whole lot of money off our insecurities! 💸The more you feel like crap about yourself, the more money you will spend trying to fix it. . . 🏖How freeing does it sound to stop doing that and feel confident forever by changing your mindset about food and weight?🧠 . . 👍🏼I’m super interest to know your thoughts on this post! . . 💕See my link in bio for more info! . . . . . . . . #foodfreedom #bodyconfidence #morethanabody #bodytrust #bodytalk #momsupport #mymotherhood #bodyimagecoach #nutritioncoach #antidiet #nomorediets #strongmom #dietculturesucks #nofoodrules #foodisnottheenemy #ditchthediet #bodypositivemom #mindfulmom #bodyimage #momlife #momoftwo #momprobs #momsupport #dietitianmom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #realmomlife #momsofinstagram #bodypositivemovement #authenticmom #realmotherhood

8 year ago if you would have asked me to workout with you I would have LAUGHED in your face! I did NOT participate in physical activity! I did NOT exercise or eat healthy! I HATED exercise actually! I simply just didn’t CARE! ...... So 6 years ago when I was given the opportunity to try these crazy home workouts I did... more so because I had JUST had a baby and I saw all the “other” moms going to the gym to get their pre-baby body back and well I had to follow suit because that’s what I did... I was a FOLLOWER! But I HATED the idea of the gym because well... 1. I didn’t want other people to watch me fail! 2. I didn’t want to see anyone I knew (small town folks get me) 3. I knew it would be a waste of money because I would go twice and hate it and never go again 😂 (I had done that before) Do you see a pattern here? EXCUSES! That’s what I see! So I said heck let’s try this home workout business because... 1. No one will know if I don’t do it or if I fail! 2. No one will be watching me 3. It’s a HECK of a lot cheaper than the gym! .... again I was setting myself up to fail! What I didn’t know is MY coach had other plans for me! I got placed in an online accountability group “shoot now people are expecting me to do it😳🤦‍♀️” And so I did it, I showed up everyday and I fell in LOVE with the process! I loved the trainers, the motivation I got from the group, the idea of being able to get a workout done while the baby napped! This was a LIFE CHANGING moment for me! I found something that worked for ME, something that fit into my BUDGET, something that fit into my busy SCHEDULE (mom of 3 working full time as a RN) I haven’t looked back! I have stuck to this home fitness routine for 6+ years now! People often ask... don’t you get bored—NO I have over 900 workouts to choose from... 10+ trainers to choose from Hundreds of women cheering me on to keep going! Nope never get bored! There is always something new! ..... So tell me, are you ready to join me on a journey that has truly changed my life!? A journey that has taught me more about myself that I ever knew! A journey of freedom from negative self-talk! A journey of becoming my healthiest, happiest self!!

From the moment you tell people you’re pregnant until the day you die, everyone and their mother will tell you how you “should” parent.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ While I believe most of these people are likely well intentioned, it gets ANNOYING AF. In case you need it today, here’s a reminder: you are the perfect person to make decisions for your children. If that means multi-tasking work on your laptop and loving your baby at the same time then you do just that. 💜 #EverythingMotherhood #MOGAmoms

I took this picture a few weeks ago. I had just gotten back from a camping trip my sister and I went on. We were tenting and, well, our tent didn’t keep the rain out too well, so we had to come back early😔🌧 ⠀ I remember unpacking and as soon as everything was out of the car and into the house, I went to my bed and started crying. I was feeling very frustrated and a bit of sadness😪💔 ⠀ I was mostly frustrated at the thoughts going through my mind: 👉🏼“you ate so much junk food yesterday, you have no control” 👉🏼“get up and do something” 👉🏼“you’re so sensitive, get over yourself” ⠀ To be honest, it was a really hard day. Body image wise, worthiness wise and just mental health wise in general🧠 ⠀ And I share this because I’m sick of the highlight reel. 👉🏼because I hate seeing other coaches/trainers pretend that they have it all together when they really don’t. 👉🏼because I value vulnerability. 👉🏼because I am here for the people who think they are alone. 👉🏼because I am a human having a human experience. 👉🏼because I needed someone to share this with me when I was deeply struggling. 👉🏼because this world needs less bullshit and more real shit. ⠀ If you’re having a not so great day today, I see you and I honour you and I encourage you to leave a “❤️” below so I and others can share some love/support with you. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ . . . . . . . . . . #yogaforteens #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflovespo #bodypositivity #confidencebuilding #buildingconfidenceinteens #momofagirl #momofteens #momofateengirl #ilovemykids #positivemom #bodypositivemom #raisingconfidentkids #lifeofamom #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selfloveclub #momsquad #bodyconfidence #teenhelp #buildingapositivebodyimage #embraceyou #bopowarrior #mentalhealth #eatingdisordercoach #antidietculture #disorderedeating #fitmom #momprenuer #dancemom

Body image is all about perspective. The same body we’ve been at war with our whole lives can be the same body we fall in love with and really begin to appreciate. We all have things we wish we could change about our bodies, struggles with feeling confident, or creeping thoughts of comparison. Whether it takes up your whole day or is a fleeting thought it affects us. Finding peace in your own skin takes time, practice, and perspective. Flip through a few lenses - think of how you see yourself, think of how those who love you see you, and then think of how God sees you. And although you are not your body and your body doesn’t determine your worth, you body is worthy of love and appreciation no matter the size or condition. Think of all the things your body allows you to do! Bring light to the positive and focus on them and not on what it’s not. Maybe start a gratitude journal reminding you of all the things your body has, can, and will do for you! This will help you reframe your mind to see your body from other perspectives. See the link in my bio for more thoughts on body image and a God 👉🏼 . . . . . _______________________________________________________ #trustinghim #godourcreator #aboveallelse #bodypositivemom #bodypositivity #ilovemybody #intuitiveeating #postwithpurpose #itiswell #happymomlife #lovealways #livedeeplyrooted #lifewithlittles #momlife #trustyourself #perspective #gratitudejournal #christianblogger #faithinfood

Zie je die strepen? Nee, dat is geen maanlandschap. Die zitten op mijn buik. Die buik is nogal veranderd want ooit, zo’n 3 jaar geleden was hij strak, slank en soms zelfs gespierd. En nu, twee jaar na de geboorte van Soof is hij toch vooral zacht en gestreept. Het accepteren van dat nieuwe lijf ging nu niet bepaald zonder slag of stoot. Nee, dat was een hobbelige en flubberige weg naar acceptatie en zelfliefde. Hoe dat ging lees je in mijn nieuwe blog; Een ode aan mijn moederlijf! De link vind je in mijn bio. Ik ben trouwens ook heel benieuwd hoe jij het veranderen van je lijf hebt ervaren, ging dat makkelijk of is het (nog steeds) iets lastigs? #moederlijf #striae #moeder #moederschap #postpartumbody #moederschapsblogger #ouderschap #buik #buikfoto #postpartum #blog #blogger #moederblog #postnataal #bevallen #mombody #bodypositivemom #zelfliefde #acceptatie #bodyacceptance #lichaamsacceptatie #zelfzorg #striaeisoke #mamablogger #natuurlijkouderschap #bewustouderschap #bewustwording

Prenatal yoga is supreme bliss. Even as a teacher, not a student, it's a dreamy experience. ✨ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We love teaching people how to create a time of calm and self-care for groups of expecting moms. That's really what prenatal yoga is about.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Sure, the strength building is there. The stretching is there. The birth prep body work is there. The breathing is there. But above all else, the community of calm is there.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Are you an expecting mama? Have you tried prenatal yoga before? 💜 #EverythingMotherhood #MOGAmoms

Look, we know that all the studies show that electronics are bad for young children’s minds.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Get it. Noted. Got it. ✅ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ BUT - what those studies don’t show is my toddler driving me to the brink of insanity and my choices being to drink wine at 9am or letting him watch 10 minutes of YouTube.

Have you noticed that dads get praised for being a ‘good dad’ for things that moms do EVERY. DAMN. DAY. without so much as a thank you?! 🙇🏼‍♀️⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Out with the baby alone? What a good dad!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Home with the kids alone? What a good dad! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Up in the night with the baby? What a good dad!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I know we’re coming off as resentful right now but this isn’t actually about praising dads too much - it’s more about NOT praising mothers ENOUGH. 💜 #EverythingMotherHood #MOGAmoms

I’m posting my new body measurements to document the start of this new chapter of mommy-hood and weight loss! . I also posted my old measurements to show how how quickly body composition can change with dedication and consistency. Last year before I got pregnant I lost 80 pounds! . My goal is to get back to my pre-baby weight and maybe even my pre-baby measurements in the next 3 months. . I gained 45 pounds with this pregnancy. I was 184 at the beginning and ended at 229. I came home from the hospital at 219 and stayed there through the week until starting keto again. Now a week later I am 204.8 and ready to start marking my losses! Only 19ish pounds to get back to where I was and 29 pounds to goal weight. . I’m not cleared to workout yet, but I will be walking and trying to log as many steps as I can until I am able to get back to Orangetheory! 🙌🏼 . . . . . . . . . . . . #bodymeasurements #bodymeasure #weighin #weightlossmotivationquotes #postpartumnutrition #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #postpartumbump #postpartumweightloss #postpartumweightlossjourney #mombody #bodypositivemom #mombodytransformation #mombodygoals #mommyconfidence #mombodrevolution #bodypositivemom #momsbody #confidentmoms #weightlossinspiration #weightlossgoal #weightlossprogress #weightlossdiary #weightlossstory #weightlosscommunity #extremeweightloss #weightlossbeforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #loveandfitshop

Ladies, RIGHT NOW, in the comment section tell me something you LOVE about your body. ⬇️⬇️⬇️💙 . Come on, you can do this. . You’re going to think of the things you don’t like...tummy, double chin, arms, cellulite, nose, hair, etc. . Shake those off and focus on what you do like. . And then here’s the thing. . When I did this little exercise a long time ago, I could really only come up with my eyes being what I liked the most and it was because everything else fell short of what Society saw as beautiful and perfect. . My hair wasn’t thick and long. . My stomach wasn’t toned and flat. . My nose wasn’t small and button like. . My teeth weren’t white enough. . My arms were too flabby. . My legs were too chunky. . And everything I didn’t like was in comparison to models in magazines, celebrities, etc. . Women who either have the money to look the way they do or are airbrushes to reach that “perfect” look. . If we didn’t have this immeasurable standard to compare all our features to, I wonder what we’d just honestly like about ourselves? . Think about it. 💕

I almost deleted this picture when my Mom showed it to me after she took it. _ ...look at my stomach. A good part of it is hanging over my bottoms. ...my thighs. If you zoom in, you can see my spider veins. It’s the furthest from flawless. _ But then I decided to look at it like my son or husband would look at it. They would see beauty and strength. I also had to remind myself as to why my son was so adamant for this picture in the first place — he wanted to be picked up so we could show our “musculls” and give cool dude 👍 thumbs. They would see all the confidence I have in who I am. They would love this picture because they love me |unconditionally| flaws and all! _ So I’m posting it. _ Sure, I could have posed at another angle or asked for several retakes until the photo made me ‘look better’ but I want you to see the real me. I share this with you because I want to spend less time zooming in and focusing on the flaws and more time loving me, unconditionally. _ I hope you do the same. _ _ #selflovestrong #mondaymorningmindset #bodypositivewoman #bodypositivemom

All moms have different genetics, circumstances, experiences, needs, desires, health conditions, and lifestyles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Each of our bodies changes differently when we become mothers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The notion that all moms (and people) in general should look the same, be the same shape or size is ridiculous and unfair. Please don't waste your time on trying to be a shape or size that wasn't meant for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are a wonderful mother just the way you are--your children don't need a mother with a different pant size. They need a mother that is present, kind and shows self-respect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you feel pressure to be different than you are? Share with me below!

2 weeks postpartum . Down 23 pounds since Brinleas birth and 13 pounds since last Monday! I started eating strictly keto again last Monday and have lost major water weight and thankfully my swelling seems to have gone down a ton! . I was going to wait until I felt ‘up to’ cutting calories but I feel fantastic so I don’t see any reason why not to go for it. . I took some measurements to get my new starting point and I’m actually really excited to start working on losing the weight again! 😁 Here we gooo! . . . . . . . #thisispostpartum #postpartumhealing #postpartummom #postpartumanxiety #postpartumgoals #postpartumwellness #postpartumnutrition #postpartumbody #csectionrecovery #postpartumbump #postpartumweightloss #postpartumweightlossjourney #1weekpostpartum #postpartumbelly #2weekspostpartum #postpartumsupport #mombody #bodypositivemom #mombodytransformation #mombodygoals #mommyconfidence #weightlossmotivation #weightlossmotivationquotes #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssupport #weightlosspostpartum #weightlossrecipes #weightlossinspiration

👉🏼Tell me your thoughts on BMI! . . 🤔Though I have an overweight BMI, I don’t have any physical health problems. . . 💕I remember one particular mom I was working with told me that her doctor had told her that her BMI falls in the obese range. . . 😞This crushed her!

🤔Do you honor your hunger? . . 😩Or do you ignore your hunger until it’s “time” to eat? . . 🙌Honoring your hunger is one of the intuitive eating principles. Did you know that when we wait to eat and ignore our hunger, it leads to over eating or binge eating? . . 👉Has that ever happened to you? . . 👩‍👧‍👧We get busy as moms! Sometimes this does happen to me and then once I am aware of my hunger, I eat as soon as I can. I don’t judge myself for waiting so long. I understand it takes practice and there is no such thing as a perfect eater! . . 😃Are you looking for support with intuitive eating and honoring your hunger? . . 🙏Do you want to learn more about how to eat intuitively? . . 💕Sign up for the Body Positive Mom online coaching program!

I wanted a daughter so so badly. As a strong, confident woman, I thought “I need to raise a daughter”.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Truth is, strong women need to raise strong girls AND strong boys. We need to raise men who will speak up against inequality as much as we need to raise women who will shatter glass ceilings! 💜 #EverythingMotherhood #MOGAmoms

Learn how to tune false diet culture messages. Learn how to look at your body with admiration and not judgement. . . ✨This life exists for everyone! The first step is to stop avoiding foods and situations because of feels of worry and guilt. Wear that swimsuit along side your kids at the beach!

Hunger is a normal biological response to the need for food and energy. Self-control and willpower have absolutely nothing to do with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's okay to feel hunger, even if you just ate, even if you've eaten a large volume already that day, even if it's after 7pm, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Restricting and attempting to suppress or control hunger often times leads to food preoccupation, enhanced hunger, and sometimes overcompensation later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honoring your hunger is essential to eating more intuitively. This means eating regular meals, not ignoring hunger signals, assessing what foods satisfy your hunger and nourish you well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Share with me below what happens when you ignore hunger or wait too long to eat a satisfying snack or meal! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To help you build meals that satisfy hunger, get my FREE flexible meal planning guide at the link in my bio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #busymomnutrition #satisfyhunger #honoryourhunger #intuitiveeating #foodfreedom #bodykindness #momnutrition #happymom #nourishedmom #nutritionformoms #newmomlife #workingmom #dietmentality #eatwellbewell #easymealideas #healthybody #healthymind #allfoodsfit #momnutrition #familynutrition #healthyeating #womensnutrition #dietitianmom #nutritionforwomen #mombod

Hey you, beautiful girl...or guy. 😝 . What would happen if you had no body/appearance insecurities? . What would you wear? . What kind of hairstyle would you get? . What would you do? . Where would you go? . I know that my whole life seems to have changed since I’ve confronted my body/appearance insecurities. . I mean, I went freakin roller blading! 🤣 And fell badly! But it was awesome! . I chopped off my safe long hair and got the blonde pixie cut I’d been wanting for forever but never thought I could get until I was skinny. . I’ve spent my summer at the pool with my kids. Not concerned with how my body looks in my swimsuit but concerned with making memories and enjoying myself. . I’ve been able to LIVE friends! Not hide away, just dreaming of the day I got skinny and then could live. . Our insecurities LIE. They lie and rob us. . Confront them. Tear them down. Defeat them. . You deserve to LIVE!!!!! No matter your features, size, weight, height, or financial status. . Live!

I haven’t worn shorts in YEARS out in public. Decades maybe! I hate my cellulite. Hate it! But most people have it. I remember my doctor saying once that even the thinnest people have it, that it’s just a way we store fat, just not the prettiest way. . But last night I wore them. OUTSIDE the house. IN PUBLIC. And didn’t care! I felt comfortable, stylish and had a great time out with my daughter. And I didn’t think even once about how I looked or what anybody thought. . That’s what being comfortable in your skin feels like, right? Wear the shorts or the white jeans or the leggings or the dress or the bathing suit. . Wear it. Rock it. And don’t look back. . This is 49 and I’m free and cool with it. . What is something you’d love to wear but are uneasy about it? . #wearthebikini #rockyourstyle #thisis49 #over40andfabulous #styleover40 #ootday #whatiworelastnight #selfconfident #over40women #styleover40 #amwriting #encouragingwomen #loveyourbody #bodypostivity #bodypositivemom #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillnessadvocate

Day number ✌🏼 of my 12 hour, solo road trip home, and I’m feeling GOOD. ⠀ I spent the night at my aunt and uncles last night. We had a big family dinner outside on the patio and it filled my heart with so much love ❤️ being with family is my greatest joy. ⠀ The first part of my drive yesterday went really good! I listened to the Body Kindness podcast, sang some old Katy Perry songs (think Teenage Dream and California Girls) ☀️ 🎤 at the top of my lungs, stopped to pee about 7 times (lol #smallblatterprobs 🤪) and did a lot of deep thinking 🤔 ⠀ Something I was thinking about was how willing I am to be vulnerable online, but when it comes to being vulnerable in person, it’s A LOT harder for me. I think this is because I still have this deep fear of being judged, especially face to face. And I did come to the realization of how much easier it is to be vulnerable around some people than it is around others. And I think that’s not only okay, but important, to be vulnerable around people you feel safe and comfortable with. ⠀ I’m thinking today’s drive may look like: -jamming out to old Avril Lavigne songs 🤘🏼 -more deep thinking 💭 -tons of pee breaks 🥴 -listening to some kind of podcast.... any suggestions would be awesome!!!🙌🏼 ⠀ I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday❤️ ⠀ ⠀ . . . . . . . . . . #yogaforteens #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflovespo #bodypositivity #confidencebuilding #buildingconfidenceinteens #momofagirl #momofteens #momofateengirl #ilovemykids #positivemom #bodypositivemom #raisingconfidentkids #lifeofamom #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selfloveclub #momsquad #bodyconfidence #teenhelp #buildingapositivebodyimage #embraceyou #bopowarrior #mentalhealth #eatingdisordercoach #antidietculture #disorderedeating #fitmom #momprenuer #dancemom

Is this not exercising!? 😝 . Some days you’re just not feeling it. . Most days I’m not feeling it. . But I know if I push through being uncomfortable that I will feel so good when I’m done. . Some days I think we definitely need to listen to our bodies and just rest but our feelings can mascaraed as our bodies and get everything twisted. . I’m learning to take care of my body and it’s not always fun but I know long term that it will be worth it. 😘🧡 . Do you exercise daily??

👇🏼Tori’s story (come follow me for more stuffff at @torisawchuk ) ⠀ “In 2013, my world started to slowly fall apart, piece by piece. ⠀ I was 14 at the time. A teenager. I was watching my body change in so many different ways. Breasts and hips and thighs developing, which caused stretch marks. I didn’t know what to think about all of this….. until I got a phone for my birthday later that year. ⠀ When I got my phone, the first thing I did was sign up for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest…. ALL and EVERY social media platform. Soon enough, after reading posts and seeing pictures, my confusion on what to think about my body changing became clear…. It wasn’t good. I needed to try to lose the weight I was gaining and my stretch were UGLY… said all these influencers. ⠀ The media taught me to believe that shrinking myself was going to make me confident, happy, and popular… I didn’t know any different, so I went for it. ⠀ I started doing what the media told me to do, to not eat x and y, and exercise as much as I can. ⠀ Soon enough, food and exercise and the way my body looked consumed my life. ⠀ I missed out on so much of my high school life because I was scared of missing a workout and eating something I ‘shouldn’t. ⠀ I wasn’t living. I was just, barely, existing. I started to really hate myself and my life. ⠀ Luckily, I had the courage and strength to reach out and get help. And when I started to recover, I came to realize how beautiful life really is. I came to realize there was SO much more to life than my body, exercising and food. ⠀ In 2016, I started @wildflowermovement.ca so I can help the girls who are just like the 14 year old me. ⠀ If you are ready to stop hating your body and your life, DM me and let’s chat about the ways I can support you. ⠀ I love you and believe in you.” ⠀ Xoxoxo Tori ⠀ ⠀ . . . . . . . . . . #yogaforteens #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflovespo #bodypositivity #confidencebuilding #buildingconfidenceinteens #momofagirl #momofteens #momofateengirl #ilovemykids #positivemom #bodypositivemom #raisingconfidentkids #lifeofamom #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selfloveclub #momsquad #bodyconfidence #teenhelp #buildingapositivebodyimage #embraceyou

Every time they heard me say “Eww, no! I don’t want to be in the picture.” I was teaching them all about the big world of insecurities. . Every time they heard me call myself “fat” in a negative manner and every time they saw me not want to go outside because I was “too fat”...all those times I was teaching them. . I was teaching them that if were not skinny and perfect looking that we stay inside, we don’t have fun, we hide. . TODAY, I teach them that our bodies are worth celebrating ALWAYS! . They know that fat is not something to be ashamed of. It defines NOTHING. . They see me living my life to the fullest now, getting in the photos, wearing clothes that fit my body and give me confidence, getting outside and trying new things. . They see their Mommy showing them the big world of FREEDOM!!!!! ❤️🧡♥️

I don’t love when people preach that “food is medicine so make sure to wisely” ⠀ Saying things like: 👉🏼“Do you know what is in that KD and what it’s doing to your body?” or 👉🏼“You’re practically killing yourself by drinking that coke” ⠀ Ya, okay, I get it. Some foods have some really cool healing powers✌🏼 And yes, some of the things in some foods isn’t great for your body/health. ⠀ HOWEVER👇🏼 A box of KD is literally medicine to a starving, homeless, little boy who has nothing else and an occasional coke on a hot summer day is not going to kill anyone. ⠀ I feel like sometimes health can be taken WAY to far. And I’m all for health, TRUST me, but I’ve learned to be concerned for it, not OBSESSED with it… which has allowed for a lot more freedom and joy in my life, to be honest. ⠀ Just some #foodforthought …. do ya feel me??

Co-founder Amy talks about her personal purpose for starting @moga_moms. 💜 No one can prepare you for motherhood, and even more so when you’re alone. A single mom, in a new city, isolated and alone. It was the perfect combination to experience postpartum depression. Except, at the time, I had no idea that is what I was going through. In June 2015, I knew I needed to reach out and find community. Except, all that I found was “get your body back messages” or mom groups with judgement (I was a working, single mom, who formula fed....). • I couldn’t find the community I was looking for, so I created it. • It’s funny, looking back, I created MOGA for our local mom community. In reality, MOGA gave me more than I ever gave the community. I felt connected, less alone, and today, so proud of all the lives we have touched. Our next step is to come full circle and create a program for postpartum mood disorders. No mom should ever have to suffer alone. Now you know why we are working so hard to campaign for ourselves in the @telus pitch contest! • We need your votes so we can continue this work and scale it so it can reach every mom in every corner of our country and beyond. The Birth Your Power program will support moms suffering from postpartum mood disorders and anxiety. • We mean it when we say, a vote for MOGA is a vote for moms everywhere! Head to the link in the bio @Moga_moms and VOTE!

“In order for a mother to truly be helped by a mental health professional, she needs to feel safe. She will not feel safe if she fears the judgement of others or the loss of her children - which is why an online program like Birth Your Power is a great first step for mothers who might be suffering in silence” - Registered Clinical Counsellor • All three MOGA Co- Founders experienced Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders and have felt what YOU are feeling.
