You can be #bodyposi and #fitspo at the same time
Despite opinions promoted by anti diet culture or body positive and size based “movements” that changing your body = hating your body
This is only perpetuating the beliefs that need to be broken to enact change in society
Honestly, the times I spent hating my body were also my least productive times when it came to changing my body
The best results I’ve ever created came when I started doing what the version of myself who loved herself fully & completely in that phase of life would do
And the best part about that is it’s so much more freeing and fulfilling to work at something with love in your heart and positivity backing your commitments
I don’t feel anything is forced now
Even when it’s hard and I am challenging myself or pushing through physical and mental limits
Because I see that I am choosing everything and it is all for a really good and powerful reason
And I no longer feel so much pressure on myself because I am present with myself
You can change your body, achieve your goals, and commit to a better lifestyle without sacrificing your autonomy
You can also change your body without being shamed to believe that wanting to change it makes you a hater of it
You can change your habits without being convinced that in creating more positive commitments to yourself you’re actually trapping yourself into negative relationships with food or your body
You can love your body while also working to change it
You can change your body using acts of self love
The best way to do any of this is by detaching from expectations of the environments, communities, or society you’ve immersed into, challenging the negative / limiting beliefs rooted in loathe or external conditioning & reinforcements, and creating your own expectations for yourself
What expectations do you have of yourself that you need to release?
What thoughts or feelings toward yourself have been unfair lately?
What parts of you no longer feel like the real you?
