Maybe it’s not suppose to be easy for you. Maybe you’re one of the rare few who can handle tough times and still choose to be a loving person. Maybe it’s going how it’s going because because your built for it.
Don’t stress a thing. It’s going to workout because you’re not gonna stop putting in the work 💪🏼
To this who have it harder then others, to those who watch other people succeed in their dream effortlessly even tho you are putting in the work day and night, and to those who are struggling with problems or unexpected things...
YOU. GOT. THIS. 🤗💕
Happy Saturday 👌🏼🔥
All my life I strived to be “Skinny”. I thought it was the key to my happiness and that thin people had it all. They had the beautiful boyfriends, the best jobs, the coolest friends, and the best lives. That’s how the media portrayed it to me at least. That’s how I thought it was supposed to be.
Now that I’m 8 months vegetarian,🌱 my body has changed quite a bit. And it seems like every where I go, everyone I see makes comments on just how “Skinny” I am now. And I don’t like it. I wish they wouldn’t say that at all.. it makes me uncomfortable. Because in my last two years of my self love journey, I realized just how beautiful your life can be without being any certain body type. Or any certain type of anything. 💖
You can be whoever the hell you want!
Do whatever the hell you want!
And wear whatever the hell you want, and live a happy life!! I’m simply just me. ☺️
This body is merely temporary.
I’m changing everyday and growing as a person with each new day too.
I’m in constant BLOOM! 🌻
I will live a beautiful life regardless of how my body looks. And so should you! 🌺 Maybe next time you compliment someone think about the journey and not so much the body. “You look beautiful” or “you look healthy” can make a person feel just as confident as “skinny”. Just some food for thought. .
Here's a lovely fail @245lbs, I honestly thought I had this but what can you do? I walked away unsatisfied and lowered the weight 5lbs and hit an all time PR @240lbs. I've been doing a new program for 4 weeks and all my lifts went up as follows:
Squat: 210lbs~> 240lbs
I honestly just can't wait to bench 135
Hi Guys! So this is the first of many posts. I’m a writer, poet, artists, and admittedly - someone who is learning to love themselves. This page will be a body blog. I’ll share photos of myself, and discuss various topics about weight loss, body shapes, insecurities, etc.
This picture gives me a lot of anxiety. I don’t like it. I hate this angle, I have so many stretch marks, and I’m still working on growing my booty. What exercises do you do to maintain/grow the muscles in your hips and thighs?
Ahh how I loved being a model for Africa Day for UVA my first year! This was from the Abyssinia portion of the show. I’ll be back on stage for the Miss KAPsi pageant soon, have you checked out the links in my bio? 👑♦️🇪🇹
words can change your life. it doesn't matter if it's words from books or stories or a chat with your friends or your parents - or online in the captions of the beautiful body positivity warrior that is @bodyposipanda. honestly - her words have changed my life. i, too, was an impressionable young girl taught to hate my own body by society once upon a time. and maybe i still am an impressionable young girl, but at least i'm being impressed by such a positive force - among others. not only in terms of loving your body, but loving your entire self for everything you are. it's good to have such a positive influence pop up on my feed every once in a while to remind me of all these important things.
i know it's not always easy, but i'm trying to be the best, most positive person i can be, and i think that's enough. and i'm getting better at it, too. i'm trying to be on my phone less. i'm getting up earlier and earlier; i'm getting uni work done. i'm going on walks more frequently and recently, i met a nice old lady and we had a nice little chat as i walked home with her. i'm drawing. i'm reading. i'm writing. i'm creating. and i think i'm going to start dyeing my hair again soon, just so i can fall in love a little more with myself. ✨
so this is megan, rolling her eyes at diet culture.
