I received a message on my fitness Instagram asking me why I promote body positivity when I’m trying to change my own body.
Here’s the thing. I am all about loving your body no matter what size you are. I think it’s extremely important to love yourself from the inside out. And I do. I love myself. I have accepted my body and have come to love it for what it is.
BUT I know my body is capable of so much more. I’ve come to realize how important it is to take care of your body.
Here’s the thing. I’m not working to get skinny. I’m working to be healthy and fit. There’s a huge difference in that. I don’t look to the scale to make me feel good. I base my journey off of the way I feel and the results I can see.
I already look in the mirror and know that I love my body. I want to look in the mirror and know that I’m doing what’s best for my body. I want to know that I’m doing everything to be the best me I can possibly be.
So yes. I promote body positivity because I know what loving yourself can do for you. But I also promote health and fitness because I know what they can do for you as well.
SO IN CONCLUSION, love yourself no matter what your body type is, but never stop working to be the best you can possibly be!
