This image has always been so powerful to me. Society tries to warp our brains into thinking there is ONE body type, ONE norm: supermodel. There’s just one problem... only a very small percentage of women actually have that body type. The exact OPPOSITE of the “norm.” Guess what, folks? Whether we “like” it or not, our genes play a giant role in our body type. We CANNOT alter this, just as we can’t alter our height, our race, our voice. Think about it. What if we all went hanging upside down by our toes all day in efforts to grow taller? What if we spent all day trying to smush ourselves into a tunnel trying to get shorter, more petite? We’d wonder what the hell went wrong in the world! Well... that’s exactly what’s happening, people! There’s only so much we can do and if it’s not healthy, it’s not okay! The beauty of this world is everyone’s differences. Instead of looking into the mirror to change the way you were MADE, look to ACCEPT. Own who you are because you are beautifully YOU. There are millions of body types, shapes, and genes...and “supermodel” is only ONE of them! If that’s not you, cool. Guess what? You’ve got so much more to offer this world! There is only ONE you👇 Tip: look in the mirror and instead of picking apart your body, name something you appreciate based on your genes. I’ll start. I used to be very self-conscious that I didn’t have curves, boobs, a butt. However, I’m not going to go change that. I can’t. I can look at my body now and say “I have my dad’s body type. It’s like I have a piece of him with me no matter what and that makes me feel special.” K, now YOUR TURN ! Share below :) -DM for coaching details!

За последнее время мир сделал огромный прорыв в деле против фешн и бьюти индустрии. Да, все больше и больше в дурналах появляются фото плюс-сайз моделей, растяжки, жир и волосы на теле перестали быть табу - это, однозначно, прекрасно. Бодипозитив - нереально крутая штука, и ее всеми силами нужно продвигать в медиа. Но бодипозитив должен касаться не только женщин. Это - пост поддержки всем мальчикам и мужчинам, которые чувствуют себя некомфортно наедине с телом. Всем тем маскулинным персонам, чье тело не вписывается в стандарты о представлении мужского* тела. Это нормально - иметь большие бедра и феминное телосложение. Это нормально - не иметь мускулатуры и рельефного пресса. Это нормально - не иметь волос на теле (по причинам генетики или удаления по личным причинам). Это нормально - оправляться после рпп или бороться с этим. Это не делает тебя менее важным и слабым. Это нормально - находиться в стадии принятия своего тела. И так же нормально сомневаться в процессе принятия.

What are some simple ways to infuse "sexploration" into your life? It could be something as straightforward as having sex in a different location, besides the bedroom! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ If you wanna hear me speak about the power of "sexploration" as well as what its like growing up with a conservative, repressed Asian background, then tune into the "Sassy Speaks" podcast by @sassyhongkong for episode 4 "Let's talk about sex, baby!"⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ .⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ .⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ .⁣⁣⁣

Hello everyone! My name is Danielle, and this is my son, Maximus (I have no pictures of it me since he’s been born, they are all with him 😂). I want to start by saying thank you for following and engaging in my posts. You have no idea how much it means to me. ♥️♥️ For over 10 years I suffered with bulimia and for the last 7 years have been symptoms free. I took never thought recovery was possible. So believe me when I say that recovery is possible and that it won’t always be so difficult. I started this page in hopes of inspiring positive thoughts when your eating disorder voice gets loud, to show you that it is possible to recover from an eating disorder and that there is life without it. I will be doing a q&a in my stories today if you have any questions for me! With love, Danielle #embracingmytrueself #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #nomakeup

“I can’t eat that because it’s bad” or “I was bad today because I ate a cookie, I might as well give up” Have you ever caught yourself saying or thinking these? I know I have a million times. I want you to think about this simple mindset shift. If you want pizza or chocolate, eat the chocolate or pizza. Fully enjoy every bite and if at any moment you have a negative thought about it, stop eating it immediately. Once you are finished enjoying the treat, move on! It’s that simple! The reason we binge is because we don’t think we are allowed to have these foods, so we eat the whole package and say we will start over tomorrow. I encourage you to practice this shift and see how it works for you! Don’t forget to check out this turkey meatball recipe on my website! Link is in the Bio!

Check your perfectionism. It’s ok to be where you are in your life at this moment. Acknowledge those feelings and the thoughts that come behind them. Know that you’re not alone.

Needs to be said. #repost @feelgoodeating with @get_repost ・・・ Truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ REPOST VIA @streetsmart.rd . Why do we need weight inclusive spaces, more size diversity, and representation in dietetics? (And you know...the world in general) . Because there has always been diversity in body shapes and sizes. There will always be diversity in body shapes and sizes. And there is absolutely nothing wrong, bad, or unhealthy about bodies of any shape or size #allbodiesaregoodbodies . And also...the fact that thin or small bodies aren’t immune to chronic diseases, joint pain, infertility, sleep disorders, metabolic disturbances, increased risk of whatever malady you want to throw out there, or anything else you want to blame on weight. What they are maybe immune to is the level of weight stigma, judgement, and unsolicited advice that’s enforced by our culture’s thin bias. . My recap of the #windworkshop2019 is posted this morning and that’s where this quote came from. Hearing from @jennifermcgurkrdn and @goodnessgraciousliving was just what I needed to fill my cup again and come home ready to keep working (and @heatherdcrd and @alissarumseyrd absolutely slayed it as the co-hosts). Catch Episode 95 of the @rdrealtalk podcast, too.

When we have an ambassadors like @jennifer.pietsch who is so open and brave at the age of 17! 💪🏼 . I never thought that I could be someone who accepted my body. I thought that acceptance was weakness. That when you appreciate things as they are, you limit growth. Boy was I wrong. Since I started being kinder to my body, and giving myself recognition for my strengths, growth has skyrocketed. I am able to be a work in progress, and love myself at the same time. I get to love the process knowing that I have come far, and that how I am is ALREADY enough. When we already love ourselves, self improvement is just some extra icing on the already beautiful cake. Which is exactly how it should be because you, as you are, will always be enough. Any self “improvement” should be improving ALL aspects of your lovely, emotional soul. -not just enhancing the physical. Fact is: bodies change. I accept my body how it is, and however it changes to be. Our looks are not our worth, and all bodies are good bodies. 💛✨ . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #ownyourstigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #eatingdisorderawarenessweek #bodypositive #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday

"If you just had more willpower you would be able to lose the weight. Just stop eating so much" "If I can do it so can you" "You just need to try harder. We all have the same 24 hours" We can never assume we know exactly what is going on in someone's life right now or what they may have had to endure up to this point in their life Instead of passing judgement - let's try more kindness and compassion both to others but also to ourselves. The world needs more of it. 📷 credit: @coachjsparkle 💕💕💕#judgement #bekind #bodyimage #morningreflection #allbodiesaregoodbodies #compassion #beagoodhuman

A study compared the overall health of 9113 women (aged 22–27 years). The women identified as either non-vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, or vegetarian. The individuals who identified as vegetarians and semi-vegetarians had a lower body mass index and exercised more than those who identified as non-vegetarians. But the same groups had poorer mental health, with 21–22% reporting depression compared with 15% of non-vegetarians. Correlation is not causation. And multiple factors come into play with our mental health, not just what we do or don't eat. With that being said, I don't think restrictive diets are the solution to gaining control over our overall health.

Do you think you are beautiful? Or is that only reserved for ”orhers”? Tell me that YOUR definition is👇 If you think only ”others” are beautiful, I want you to ask yourself what your current definition of beauty is. Can you define it? Is it having a certain hair colour? Maybe a certain size of a waist? Having blemish free skin or a toned behind? Now ask yourself where did you get this definition? Has it been from the images that have been marketed to you by the beauty industry? By being shown millions of highly edited pictures? You know... those industries that make millions selling us products that “fix” our acne, reduce wrinkles and hide our grey hair. Now I am not saying any of these products are bad. I use some. But what I want you to know in the back of your head is that you have been influenced to believe that the absence of flaws is the definition of beauty. I learned over the last year, that the definition I've been fed is bullshit. I get to decide what I think is beautiful and my beauty is ME and I have no freaking flaws that I need to hide or ”fix”. I challenge you to think about all those parts of you that you want to change and ask yourself, WHY? . . . #noflaws #innerbeauty #outerbeauty #allbodiesaregoodbodies #allbodiesarebeautiful #embraceyourbody #embraceyourflaws #perfectlyimperfect #selflove #definitionofbeauty #beyourself #mindset #mindsetreset #mindsetshift #selfcarefirst #selflovespo #theeverygirl #embrace #vulnerabilityisstrength #empoweringwomen

For years I hated my nose, because it wasn't as pointy as the noses I saw on TV most times. As an adult I have come to love all the things I used to think were flaws. Even in my family and friendship circles I pick up that so much beauty is attached to straight hair and straight noses. It is ridiculous, how the rest of us just accepted these beauty standards as normal, which in actual fact is the real flaw to start off with. #mybignose #potd #love #photooftheday #cute #instagram #instagood #nose #myflatnose #curls #melanin #melaninpoppin #selfcare #selflove #bodybeautiful #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodypositive #effyourbeautystandards #curlsbepoppin #curlyhair #curls #newkindabeauty #myownbeautiful

Whether I feel like eating 🍉 or 🍩or🍟or 🥗 whenever I honour my authentic voice around food I am actively discovering my own freedom eating #intuitiveeating This is a gentle reminder that FOOD IS FOOD. Removing the moral value that society places on food allows me to ask myself in my authentic voice “What do you really feel like eating” “What is available to eat” ✨WITHOUT FEAR (RECOGNIZING THE VOICE OF FEAR) ✨WITHOUT JUDGEMENT (RECOGNIZING THE LITTLE JUDGEY JUDGE👩🏻‍⚖️👀) 💡 When I need to go to the bathroom, I don’t hold it in for hours or wait until an “acceptable” hour to go I GO. When I am hungry or choose to eat out of curiousity or for comfort, I will honour myself in that same way I WILL EAT. In the practice of love, freedom And the release of Fear. ❤️ One day at a time. 📷 @nicolakatieimagery ❤️ . . . #foodfreedom #bodyfreedom #listentoyourbody #dietculturedropout #riotsnotdiets #edrecovery #healthateverysize #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selfcare #selflove #acceptance #surrender #myfwordsblog

I know it’s hard, I struggle every single day. My friend taught me to be 1% better every single day and that’s just what I’m doing. To be honest, my life is falling to shambles at the moment. However, I know I deserve happiness and I deserve to thrive. So n o matter what I just try. Trying is what builds you. Try and try again to be 1% better than yesterday. You’ve got this! 💖

What’s that you’re saying, Fear? 🌧 I can’t hear you over the sound of myself being BRAVE 🦁 Fear can be noisy. But brave You, yelling I AM STRONG right in Fear’s face will drown out that chatter 🗣 I was anxious today about deadlines and surgery and fitness and friends...but then I was brave and it was better.

True dat!!! 💖 You are alive for so much more than trying to shrink your body. Put your energy into living the life of your dreams not trying to 'fix' something that is all it needs ro be already 💖

I want to take a moment to re-introduce myself, since I’ve acquired a few hundred new supporters recently 🤗😭😍 so... hello! I’m Lindsay Wolf. Back in 2015, I became pregnant with my daughter, and it rocked my inner & outer world. After being unbearably thin for two decades & treating my body as a means to an end to stay that way, I encountered life-affirming transformation when I gained 75 pounds carrying both of my kids & becoming a mama. I’ve been addicted to diet pills, starved myself, binged & purged, regularly attended Jenny Craig & Weight Watchers (while already skinny!), and become a champion at hating my body despite every effort to make it societally lovable. TBH, nothing ever made me feel thin enough (aka worthy enough). And then, my pregnancy weight gain came along & had quite an unexpected impact on me. Instead of causing me to feel more imprisoned than the thin body that continued to disappoint me, existing in my larger postpartum frame has set me free from the destructive pressure to be thin. Basically, I’ve been able to breathe deep for the first time in my life. Seeing the physical, mental, & emotional evidence of the miracle of growing my two kiddos also changed me from the inside out - and now, I spend my time on Instagram helping inspire and empower women & moms to see themselves as the ever-shifting works of art they totally are. 🦋 Other things about me: I’ve been vegan for a decade 🦋 I’m a writer & an actor who loves telling stories about love & the human condition 🦋 I’ve created a TV show about a plus-sized woman who aggressively pursues online dating & falls in love with another plus-sized woman 🦋 I am insanely head over heels in love with my hubby, who loves to cook the same dinner for me almost every night 🦋 I’m a total kid at heart and love jumping in puddles 🦋 I’m as big a fan of kale salad as I am of vegan donuts 🦋 I’m a Christmas baby 🦋 and I’ve been singing songs inside & outside of the shower since I was a kiddo. 🦋 Give me a shout if you’re new here so I can send you some ❤️💖! . . . #edrecovery #traumarecovery #postpartum #motherhood #postpartumbodies #selflove #bodyacceptance #allbodiesaregoodbodies #mombod #effyourbeautystandards

🙌❤ Who else agrees?

Being 77: “I think sometimes it’s hard to look at chronic illness as anything other than a bad thing, it is awful, the constant appointments, life saving surgeries, life saving medications all of these things have made me grow up so fast, I feel my mental age must be in its 60s! It’s hard to look back and think one morning I woke up poorly and was never going to get better again. But saying all of that, the positives that have happened because I got sick are huge, the IBD and ostomy community is massive and very supportive, my friends that have autoimmune diseases too that I met through these illnesses understand and I’m so lucky I’m part of a team of women that support and look after each other. The constant need to raise awareness is shared by everyone. I genuinely feel very lucky for my life, I always think ‘everything happens for a reason’ and intend to go forward with a smile and positivity!” . #illustration#sketch#art#floral#inspire#travel#yoga#minimalistart#print#bodypositiveart#lines#bodyposi#feministart#feministartist#womenlovingwomen#beyourself #bodydiversity#bodypositivity#wellbeing#selflove#allbodiesaregoodbodies#bodyart #linesbyshirls#bodyawareness

It's my genuine opinion that pretty much everyone has inherent beauty. Our society has a really narrow idea of what constitutes beauty and I honestly fucking hate it -- it leads to people thinking that beauty is meaningless or even HARMFUL. Anyone can be beautiful, if that's something they want to be. If you want to be ugly, be ugly! If you don't care one way or the other, more power to you! But you are still worthwhile <3 you have inherent value and no matter what the spirit within you is a thing of beauty and majesty. #bodypositivity #fatacceptance #fatpositive #bodypositive #selflove #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyliberation #allbodiesarebeautiful #selfacceptance #bodyacceptance #confidence #lifetips #bopo #loveyourself

More art today: Yesterday's primary was rough. I didn't cry and it's not that anything bad has happened. It was just super deep, tough work. Lots of digging. Winter boasts several trauma anniversaries (lost loved ones, split relationships, years free from ED): Sept. 30. Oct. 4. Nov. 13. Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Year's. Jan. 17. Feb. 3. Feb. 6. Feb. 25. Then there are all the trauma anniversaries "too insignificant" to address, and by that I mean they're significant events but seldom get attention b/c it's like giving ticket numbers to construct a line for emotions that jump up for attention. Few know this, but in Jan. 2014, I got so sick (100% ED related) I missed enough Winter Term class days that I could have failed. It would've meant being unable to graduate on time, losing entrance into the Master's program I'd been accepted to, etc. My professor, President Emeritus Dr. Danieley (rest in peace), and my faith community in particular (i.e. Julie Nichols Neiderer, Pat Mauney, Brian Gerwig, Rebecca Schneider, Nikki Mullins, Rachel Hall Abrahamsen, David & Jamie Springer) plus several, several others in my inner circle (Laura Arroyo, Caroline Hood Weeks, Taylor Binnix, Beth Beless Scherer) were so helpful to me. It's what saw me to my undergrad degree finish line. All that news and name dropping to say... It is a very, very important time to cling to gratitude and choose to celebrate what I have while grieving layers and layers of historical trauma timelines that happened year after year until now. Though it can seem like dwelling on the past, we process these experiences through art because my body knows the past and present the same. The same way flowers grow back year after year in their season is the same way trauma resurfaces until it can be uprooted, processed, and returned to the earth healthy and restored. These particular pages have led to conversation spaces with my therapist about how having a healthy food relationship is a life's work. The envelope full of figures invite have led to us discussing what doesn't need to be brought to the surface and how much to dig. I hope my sharing has validated your own complex journey- whatever it may be about.

Yeah I’m going to need you to get off my back, I’m busy lying on it. * The belief that yoga is somehow the panacea to all woes is rampant, especially amongst those who should know better. I have nothing against yoga, I used to do a lot of it, but these days it scares me because it often leads to more time in bed than if I’d skipped it and opted for a long walk. Trying to argue with a yoga proselytiser is pointless though. So I lie.

Snow drops have always been THE ultimate symbol of hope for me. Warmth after ice. Life after death. They whisper “This too shall pass.” Winter can be so powerfully dreadful and heavy. These delicate little guys remind me to be gentle with myself, to not give up, that even when life seems it’s darkest, somewhere the sun is waiting to rise. #snowdrops #hope #spring #justbreathe #keepgoing #thistoshallpass . . . . . . . . . . . . #bodypositivity #mybody #selflove #invisabledisability #healingfromtheinside #gratefulgabby #healingfromtheinsideout #perfectlyimperfect #bopo #bopowarrior #bodyimage #wellness #wellnesswarrior #bodyimagemovement #ihaveembraced #bodylove #loveyourbody #divinefeminine #allbodiesaregoodbodies #mybody #selflove #gratefulgabby #emotionalwellbeing #innertransformation #healingfromtheinsideout #nowrongway #bodyimage #selflovesunday #anxietyrecovery
