Ya’ll. A friend made a FB status the other day about how she really wanted this apple at Trader Joe’s...but she couldn’t have it because she is Keto. An apple! .
Look, I respect everyone’s choices because we are allowed to do what we want with our own bodies. But to deny yourself even an apple? Something from nature? With lots of vitamins and healthy properties simply because it has carbs and natural sugars? It seems so crazy to me. Yet I participated in diets and cleanses that had these same rules. I went in HARD.
Diets do harm to your body and your mind. I know many people will disagree with me. And that’s ok. I’m just glad I’m not participating in Diet Culture anymore. Ok brb gonna go eat an apple 🍎🍏🍎
Don’t confuse your INNER BULLY with RATIONALITY
I can’t tell you how NORMAL it is to fall into the trap of thinking you “should” be farther along or you “shouldn’t” be feeling so guilty still when you’re healing your relationship with food
Diet mentality teaches us that you’re either dieting or you failed. One slip up and it’s all over!
Inevitably, when we start the food freedom process, we bring that mentality with us. We see a little progress, food starts to normalize, and then all of a sudden a bad day has you questioning everything and feeling like you somehow failed
‼️ Bad days and negative thought patterns are a necessary part of the process ‼️ because you learn something new every time you make it through
If you’re still struggling with food guilt or body acceptance, LET IT BE HARD! Let yourself be struggling. Accept that this is exactly where you need to be and you will get through this.
The reality is that you won’t stop beating yourself up by beating yourself up for beating yourself up. You know?!
So just take a deep breath, and if this resonated with you, write in the comments “I’m exactly where I need to be”

A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms 🌷💐 I hear women whom I consider to be super pretty, ultra smart, and talented, put themselves down and compare themselves to others an a regular basis and it makes me so sad. There are times I do that too, quite many times but this is not how it should be.
Nearly all of us struggle with that from time to time.
Internally comparing ourselves to other people does nothing but hurt our self-esteem and create negative emotions.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that even if social media has the tendency to create the illusion of perfect lives .. that is not always the case.
Everyone has their own flaws, struggles and day-to-day problems.
Just because you look at someones Instagram account and see they are smiling in every pictures, doesn't mean they don't have their fair share of bad days. The truth is, we don't get to see the behind-the-scenes of everyone's life through social media, and we don't have a right to see any of that, anyway.
We get to see the parts they want to show, see the behind the scenes of our daily lives whether it's struggling with how you look or how much you make or the drama going on with your family or friends or whatever else it might be.
Everyone has their own demons they have to face and you are not the only one
Please do not let social media fool you in any way or make you feel any less than you are. Use it instead as an inspirational tool which you can learn and get motivation from 💛
Have a lovely day everybody 🙌🏼 @toneandsculptapp
Dein Körper spricht mit dir- hör immer gut zu! 🥰⠀
Unser Körper ist ein Wunderwerk der Natur. Jedes einzelne Bedürfnis wird von ihm mitgeteilt-wir müssen nur darauf hören. ☺⠀
Benötigt unser Körper Flüssigkeit, haben wir Durst. Brauchen wir Energie, bekommen wir Hunger. Wenn wir Müdigkeit oder Schlappheit verspüren, brauchen wir eine Pause. 😴⠀
Wie Lissa Ranklin es einmal wunderbar treffend sagte: „Wenn wir das Flüstern des Körpers nicht hören, dass etwas aus der Balance geraten ist, beginnt er zu schreien.“🙆🏽♀️🤗⠀

We’ve been saying this stuff about modesty & dress codes since 2011, and it used to make people so angry😡. Today, less of you are mad at *us* and more of you are mad at our culture that sexually objectifies girls! HOORAY! 🙌🏽👊🏽😅Here’s the truth: Girls and women are MORE THAN BODIES. MORE THAN SEXY THREATS TO ONLOOKERS. MORE THAN DECORATIONS. What if we approached modesty & dress codes from a foundation of respect for all people as full humans? What if our default was to view girls with *love & compassion* rather than with blame, fear or anger? We MUST learn to see girls as full people -not parts- and consider their well-being and humanity *first* before enforcing dress codes in ways that are alienating, embarrassing & sexualizing!
👊🏽What if we treated boys and men with the respect of knowing they have full agency and control over their thoughts and actions? No woman’s body can take that away from them. Ever notice how the subjects being protected by dress codes are almost always male, while girls are the objects being viewed and evaluated? Just a few costs of enforcing strict rules for girls are:
✔️Girls literally being told to sit on the sidelines or go home instead of compete, play, learn, and participate; ✔️embarrassment of girls in front of peers or leaders; ✔️heightened sexualization of girls by their peers and leaders tasked with evaluating their bodies and clothing; ✔️heightened fixation on appearance for the girls (aka self-objectification that distracts and holds them back in every way); ✔️increased judgement and divisiveness (especially of girls with curvier bodies), ✔️and less compassion and connection between peers, administrators, and leaders.
👊🏽Dress codes and guidelines for appropriate dress can be helpful to create uniform rules of appropriate dress for the setting, but let’s lead with LOVE, not objectification. Love for girls and women in a world that begs them to believe their bodies are their currency. Love for boys and men in a world that begs them to believe girls are most valuable as parts to consume.
👊🏽We write in detail about this linked in our bio & beautyredefined.org! #morethanabody#seemorebemore#beautyredefined

Healthy comes in all shapes and sizes.
True change happens when you worry less about the scale, and more about the memories you make poolside with your friends.
When you walk past a mirror and instead of looking away, you stop and check yourself out.
When you go clothes shopping and buy allll the clothes regardless of what the size on the tag says.
When you truly feel comfortable in your own skin and you can say - I like me!!! Not there yet? That’s ok. That’s where I come in and where I can help. Let’s chat sis, because I’m saving a seat for you!

BODY CONFIDENCE - one thing that really annoys me in society these days is women, and men's body sizes being catagorized. The other day, while having a swatch at clothes online it hit me again, i'm classed as a 'plus size' girl. There of course is a petite catagory too, now I'm sorry but how is dividing women's shapes, equality? You've got a group of girls feeling like a whale being classed as plus size, and a group of girls feeling underweight at petite. Also, there are loads of clothes that aren't available for girls in the plus size catagory, and likewise the other way round. It shouldn't matter if you're a size 8 or a size 18,we should all be able to feel beautiful and feel able to rock any damn item of clothing we want! Me and my size 14 ass is away to munch a big fat cake and watch I'm A Celeb and it never felt so good! 😉 LOVE Yourself! And also this is a throwback, don't let social media fool you, right now I look nothing like this (make up off, no extensions in, wearing sweatpants) and I'm fine with that ❤️
🙋🏽♀️💪🏽💗🇬🇷En la vida hay que declarar las cosas para que se nos hagan realidad y hoy tengo un vestido con imágenes de Santorini porque declaro que en el 2020 iré a Grecia 🇬🇷 ! Y ustedes han declarado cosas? que sueños tienen que quieren lograr? estás haciendo algo diferente para cumplirlos? cuéntenme🙋🏽♀️💗 link del vestido 👉🏼 https://fave.co/2Kud7Ys
I used to care a lot (too much) about being understood and accepted/loved. Now I just care about being left alone because no one is gonna understand me and love me like I understand me and love me, so y'all might as well just leave me be. 😅
Anyways, today I'm taking some Tamra Time, having a bath and a mask (@pixibeauty Glow Mud Mask), and enjoying my own company.🧖♀️
Maybe it's the Leo in me, but honestly I love my own company most. I just like being with myself. I like myself. I like being inside my own head. My alone time is of the utmost importance to me, so I prioritize it.
If you're looking to have some alone time, PRIORITIZE it. Tell the people you love what you need. And then do it. Be alone. Be quiet. Be still. Be with yourself.
Take it from this Leo: you are your own best friend, if you allow yourself to be. ☀️🦁👑
