Yesterday I had a revelation. Of course, I'm hear to share it with you. I'm five foot two, and the shortest of my friendship group, with everyone else ascending from five foot six (except one of my friends who is five foot three, the others are - five foot seven, five foot eight, five foot nine and five foot ten). I've always liked my height but yesterday with my friends, whilst walking towards the reflective windows, I realised how drastic the height difference was. Then I began to point out my flaws compared to my friends such as," maybe if I was taller I would look my age" or "maybe if I was taller my fat disproportion would be better". In my head I began to put myself down based off of other peoples traits despite the fact that I know I will never look like them. I'm five foot two, there is no way my legs can be long and slender! I'm here to say that I shouldn't compare myself to others and instead of wanting to be better than my peers, I should strive to be the better version of myself. Wether that means emotionally, mentally or physically. I can not compare myself to others when we have completely different genes, sizes, traits and flaws. We are all different and our individuality is what makes us beautiful. I should appreciate other peoples beauty and should also appreciate my own. Yes, it's nice to compliment others but it's also nice to take time to compliment yourself. If you are going to take anything away from what I'm saying this is what I want you to- take five minutes out of your day to appreciate your body and mind. Just five minutes, show yourself a little self love because you are beautiful and you deserve it! And stop comparing yourself to others! :) #selflove #bodylove #love #bodypositivity #excercise   #singer #feminist #equality #fitness #yesterday #music #singing #voice #voices #life #loveyourself #beyourself #embraceyourself #sing #followforfollow #f4f #piano #selfconfidence #alto #fff

Ez a kép a legnagyobb spontaneitásban készült, viszont annyira adta magát a helyzet, hogy ez is elgondolkodásra ösztönzött. ⠀⠀ Vettem egy új leggingset, aminek tök jó szoros a dereka, persze hazaérve fel kellett próbálnom azzal, amihez kitaláltam, és hát összevissza igazgattam a rajtam lévő rétegeket, aztán közben vettem észre, hogy amikor visszatűrtem a derekát, akkor milyen mértékben más képet kaptam. Szó szerint. ⠀⠀ Mindenkiről lehet előnytelen képet csinálni szerintem, én most rólam a letűrt derekút főleg annak gondolom, de győzött az indíttatás, hogy meg szeretném mutatni, hogy mi állhat bizonyos fitness átalakulások, csoda diéták és “mindigpatentülkinéző” fitness személyiségek mögött. ⠀⠀ Úgy gondolom, hogy egyszerűen nincs olyan, hogy valaki konstans ugyanúgy érzi magát, ugyanúgy teljesít mindenben, vagy éppen ugyanannyira elégedett az életének vágányaival. (Megihletett az utazás 🤣). Teljesen normális “egyszer fent, egyszer lent” lenni akár motivációban, teljesítményben, külsőleg, belsőleg, munkában, edzésben, párkapcsolatban, bármiben. De a “lent” pillanatok mind okkal történnek, egyrészt jelzésként, hogy valami nem jó azzal, amit csinálunk, másrészt viszonyításként, hogy amikor nagyon jó amit csinálunk, értékelni tudjuk, honnan is jövünk! 🙏🏼🧡 Hajrá! 🌱🙌🏼 ⠀⠀ (Amúgy a bal oldali képen nem látszik, de éppen a kis kávémat kevergetem a kezemben 😂☕️🥄)

I'm happier. I'm in less chronic back pain. I'm confident in my skin. My mental health is balanced. My anxiety is soothed. My depression is kept at bay. I'm happier when I am active. ❤🧠❤ Note: Active doesn't mean beat downs! It means listening to your body and gifting it movement. ❤✌❤ . . #beyoubravely #bodylove #bodyimage #bodypositive #bopo #bopofitness #plussizeyoga #plussizefitness #selfcare #selflove #edrecovery #bodypositivity #sweat #fitness #fitnessisforall #fitfam #nobodyshaming #bellyjelly #yoga #yogahascurves #yogahasnosize #yogapose #mentalhealth #backpain #holistichealth

I’ve always had body image issues since as long as I could remember and right now, I’m at this moment where I hate my body the most. I guess it’s from all the weight I gained and from all the stress that I’m facing. I had anorexia and I still have problems when it comes to self-criticizing myself for being ‘fat’. It’s difficult to fight that thought of never being good enough for people especially never being good enough for your own self. I’m uploading this picture to start encouraging myself to love myself for how I look like and to create a new image in my head that this is how I look like and that I should own it! I may not be perfect but I’m made in His image. Don’t let the voices and thoughts in your head win. They are toxic and all they want to do is to end your life and just hate yourself. It’s hard but give yourself a break and start loving yourself. You’re doing great as it is. 💕 #nofilter #bodypositivity #positivethinking #lovemyself #fearlesswarrior #tb #passionate #fearless #brave

How do you play? Do you play? Do you surround yourself with people who invites your child to play with theirs? 🐬🐬🐬 Your child demands to be seen! Be silly, be loud, be inappropriate! Find whatever makes your heart dance and pursue it. Then change your mind and find something else. Run, climb, swim & dance. Laugh from your heart. Cry from your heart. . Make yourself the ruler and this world playground. Cuz who cares about the end goal if we can’t enjoy the meanwhile? No makes it out alive anyways 😉 Thank you Mehdi @acrocontacttour For always inviting my child to play! 💓🦋💓 . #acro #acroyoga #armbalance #asana #asanajunkie #ashtanga #balance #beachyoga #bhakti #blessed #bliss #bodypositive #bodypositivity #crazysexyyoga #devotion #energy #feeltheyogahigh #fitness #fityogi #flexibility #acroyogalove #play #innerchild #gratitude 🙏 #lovelife #mindfullness #lifeisplay #trusttheuniverse

Why do I want to recover? Because when I look at sharp objects I want to think of them in regards to their purpose, not for causing myself harm as I sob, alone in my room. Because I want to be able to cope with stress and not immediately think of ways to throw in the towel, of ways to end it all when the going gets tough. Because I want to be able to feel safe when I’m out and about, I want to enjoy the sun and walk through the park by myself without fear of being hurt in every possible way. Because I want to think logically and rationally, most, if not all of the time, I don’t want to spiral into an anxious mess. Because I want to live a good quality life without living in fear that one of my mental illnesses may ruin my day by forcing me to stay in bed or hurt myself or lash out or self destruct. I want to recover because I deserve to feel happy. I may not always be able to see that, but this is me typing it and in this moment in time I can see the truth. If everyone else deserves to recover and feel happy, why shouldn’t I? I want to recover because I deserve it. - - - - #anawho #prorecovery #positivity #eatittobeatit #recovery #anorexia #ed #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #PTSD #fuckyouana #fuckana #edfam #edfamily #edwarrior #edfighter #edsoldier #ana #beatana #nourishnotpunish #realrecovery #realcovery #healthynothungry #nourishtoflourish #weightrestoreddoesnotmeanfat #selflove #bodypositivity #selfacceptance

I love working from anywhere. ☕ This was taken in August on a lovely summery day. I got to meet with a sweet friend, have a cup of coffee, and just talk life. ❤️ Most days I work from home... Wearing a cute top, yoga pants, and since it's cold...some ugly socks! 🤣 And then... Occasionally I get to substitute at my favorite Montessori School where I used to work full-time. Today is such day. I'm so excited to be with the upper elementary kids today! 😍 #make your own work schedule. . . . . . #workfromhome #freedom #yogapants #coffee #truths #inspirations #wellnessjourney #healthier #beyourbest #oils #youngliving #stayathomemom #momlifeisthebestlife #healthyhabits #yogapants #empowerment #anxietywarrior #bodypositivity #nature_good #naturally #nontoxic #kidsbabylove #holistic #findyourstrong #findyourstrong #madeformore #changeyourlife #behappy #essentials

Another #sewingfreya from the @tillybuttons #stretchsewingbook I love this pattern. Very easy instructions to follow, and such a quick make I can have it cut out and sewn within just a couple of hours. I had to slightly lengthen the sleeve to fit my arms, and adjust the waist and hips to my size, but they were very easy adjustments. What's best about this top is I feel put together without having to try. Fabric is a dusky rose t-shirting from @fabriclanduk I really wanted a pink top and this was just the right shade for me. The skirt I got in Primark a few years ago for just £1 #bargain #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #curvysewing #plussizesewing # #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #diyfashion #imakemyownclothes #plusize #bodypositivity #beautybeyondsize #plusizequal

I’m going to oversimplify how I felt about this week: it sucked. Sometimes adulting really sucks. (Guess that’s my word of the day lol) There’s always going to be bumps on the road and I just have to have faith that things will get better. Healthy-living wise, it’s been a bit off as well. I haven’t slept much, and yesterday was my first workout of the week. But I didn’t eat bad and I stayed hydrated. Normally I like working out to be an outlet to my feelings but I just didn’t have the energy and I decided to just listen to my body. Yesterday my husband really encouraged me to finally get back to the gym and it was the push I needed. I wanted a workout that just drained me. It was full body HIIT that had me dead by the end of it. And it felt so good. It was definitely an outlet and a good reminder that although it’s ok to take a break as needed, I can’t forget how good exercise makes me feel, no matter what’s going on in life. On the parenting side, the baby has decided to get 3 teeth at once (!!!) so sleep didn’t happen last night. Poor thing. Here’s to waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope you guys have a great day!!! . . . #fit #fitness #health #fitfam #fitspo #motivation #workout #healthy #fitchicks #fitgirl #fitgirls #fitnesslifestyle #fitmom #fitnation #fitmama #fitnesstrainer #fitspiration #fitlife #fitstagram #fitspo #fitmom #fitjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitnessaddict #fitnesslife #fitnessjourney #momswholift #girlswithmuscle #bodypositivity

I did not expect this to cause so many reactions. First I’d like to emphasise that I am a Health Promotion specialist and I daily explore many complex issues in a contemporary context. It does not in any way represent my personal opinion as it often differs from my professional one. My personal one mostly stays with me. Results are: majority of respondents think that Positive Body image movement can/does reinforce unhealthy living. One should always strive towards improving. Obesity is harmful. But so is body dysmorphic disorder(BDD). Being overweight/obese is not only about looking a certain way- it come with a high risk of illness and disease. Whereas BDD can lead one to self harm. What’s better? Don’t know. As a health professional I believe one should not encourage any unhealthy behaviours. So let’s try to keep a balance, be good to ourselves and understanding of others. Love, peace and empathy all the way ✌🏻 Have a great weekend!

THE SHORTEST AND MOST POWERFUL PRAYER YOU'LL EVER NEED! Because only you are in charge of you. Because you weren't born to feel pressured and unhappy 24/7. Because you don't have enough time or energy to waste on anyone else's ideals of how you should be acting/doing/thinking in your life. Because self-love and self-respect are your greatest assets in serving others in your universe💛 #iweigh #selfie #bodypositive #bodypositivity #anxiety #depression #selfcare #depressionquotes #selflove #anxietyrelief #360movie #markmanson #quotestoliveby #behappy #happiness

Where in your life are you hiding because of the way your body looks? I hid for years. When I ended my freshman year of high school I weighed 180lbs. I’m 5 foot 5. This number defined my entire year. I ate to fill a void. An old story that I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, smart enough thin enough. Then it switched to a cycle of starve, binge, purge. This went on til my sophomore year of college when it finally landed me in the ER. I went to residential treatment in Arizona and Texas for almost a year. Things got better but I really didn’t think any differently about myself. Yoga. Yoga saved me. I realized where old patterns, stories, and habits were keeping me sick and stuck. I learned that my body was capable of anything if i treated it well. No, my body will never be perfect (what is perfect anyway)but it is now more of a reflection of how I feel on the inside because of this practice. Strong yet vunerable, soft yet firm, brave and scared all at once, and happy. I would never have dreamed of posting a swimsuit photo even a year ago and part of me is still shocked honestly. But what the hell, so what if my thighs jiggle and My booty sags a bit. My body tells a story. As I head back to level one this week I’m so grateful to have my life back. Really back. No more hiding because of my thighs or belly, no more revolving my day around food, just out there living life and enjoying the moments. Thanks to everyone who’s loved me at my worst and helped me move to my best. My work is to share this practice. Gratitude to @baptisteyoga @baronbaptisteyoga @paigeelenson @leahcullis @5boropoweryoga and all of the other amazing teachers who’ve crossed my path. To my hubs @jgiuff who really sees me. To my Ella for teaching me joy and love. To my pack. You know who you are. @goodwolfpoweryoga And to @livebigco for always having my back, calling me on my bullshit, and for encouraging me to tell my story. More to come🖤 #recovery #bodypositivity #thebodypositivemovement #loveyourbelly #loveyourbellymovement #eatingdisorderrecovery #yoga #baptisteyoga #whybaptisteyoga #strong #yogastrong #moxiedliving

There’s so much pressure to do what’s expected and succeed and be better and faster and stronger and smarter. But you need to do what YOU want with your life. Your parents, spouses, grandparents, aunts & uncles, they had their shot. They have their own canvas of life that they can paint however you want. You need you paint yourself a life you’re passionate about. Whether that’s working a 9-5 job and being a secretary or being the CEO of Google or enlisting in the military or being an artist and living in a loft in New York City, you gotta do you. Yes, money is necessary to live. Yes, supporting your family is important. Yes, being successful is nice. But it won’t mean anything to you unless you’re passionate about your life. Unless you enjoy your life. When you live for someone else, you’ll find yourself hating your desk job, going home and feeling unfulfilled, waking up and wondering what to do with yourself. Your happiness, is JUST as important as your financial security and your success and your family. Be a doctor, be an artist, be a soldier, be an explorer, be a mechanic, do what YOU want to do. The day you start living for you, life will seem a little brighter 🖤 • text @atpposi to 81010!! • National Suicide Hotline (available 24/7): 1-800-273-8255

There’s nothing more powerful than your faith.

@licandrosan me sacó fotos trabajando el otro día. Y todo el mundo sabe que amo que me acompañen en mis vueltas de trabajo porque el trabajo independiente tiene eso de que aveces pasas pila de rato solo y yo amo charlotear. Cuando me sacó estas fotos preciosas que amo, porque realmente estar rodeada de vestuario me hace mega feliz, me quejé de que la segunda foto no tiene un ángulo muy favorecedor . Y Ups! Me encontré criticando la forma en que se ve mi cuerpo que no corresponde con los cánones de belleza. Ya estamos en momentos de deconstrucción del concepto de bello , y no siempre es fácil laburar el amor propio, pero hay que aprender a corregirse los pensamientos negativos y abrirse a la posibilidad de la belleza de mil maneras. Gracias Santi por las fotis , el cariño de siempre, la compañía y la posibilidad de corregirme! #lavestuaristarosada #bodypositivity #gordactivismo
