Don’t ever forget - YOU are beautiful!
Stop falling for lies and false promises. Give yourself permission to stop dieting and start loving yourself. <3
What legacy do you plan to leave behind? One of body hatred, comparing yourself to others and trying one diet after another in an attempt to “fix” what’s wrong with you? Or one of body love, self acceptance and self care?
What if today you gave your Self permission to experience total freedom? … What if you ceased judging, criticizing or second-guessing your Self? …. What if you were satisfied knowing doing your best is good enough? … How might that feel?

“We’re allowed to be overweight as long as we “never quit” trying, publicly and vocally, to be thinner. As long as we stay on the merry-go-round of dieting, and publicize how well we eat and how much we exercise. And it’s the best first line of defense against a lot of people–it shuts people up. Yeah I’m fat, but… (but I exercise four days a week, but I’m a vegan, but I never eat fast food, but I take a dance class, but but…
What if the real answer is: yeah, I’m fat. And so what?”
