This is ME

I used to hate my body.
Too muscular.
Not Feminine enough.
Too big.
No thigh gap.
It wasn’t until I found fitness that I started to learn to accept my body for all it could do.
I’ll never be a size 2.
I’ll never have a thigh gap.
And let’s face it, my back will always be wide.
But I appreciate it anyway.
I take pride in everything it does for me.
No thigh gap required.



5 years later 5 times happier.
You may not see a drastic difference in these pictures but I do. I used to HIDE in what I wore; leggings, sweatshirts, baggy sweaters. And yet, it was still so very clear how self conscious I felt, even under all those layers…
Now, it feels SO good to be confident, and happy in my own skin. Wearing jeans is always HUGE NSV win for me. Never take for granted feeling good in your own skin. And the best part is you get to take a step towards that victory whenever you’re ready.
Anyone else got a non scale victory to share?! Who’s working towards one of their own?
