I've made it my mission to post more quotes and thought-provoking statements on Body Positivity. But you have to practice what you preach. So this summer, I decided to invest in a bikini and WEAR IT. A few years ago, at my lowest weight, I did not have the courage to walk in a bikini because I was so unhappy and uncomfortable in my body - even more so because the “fat” no longer protected me. Now, after gaining back all the weight I lost, I decided to do things a little differently… It’s time to get comfortable in the body I have. Right now, right here. Let’s face it, if I am not comfortable now, in this body, I will never be comfortable when I start becoming healthy and fit again. So I’ve decided, EFF it, I’m going to do it. And I did, but only for a few minutes. This may be silly to some, but it took so much courage for me to do this. I felt exposed, afraid and uncomfortable, like everyone was watching me - looking at my imperfections. But it’s a start, a start in the right direction. And I am proud of myself for taking a step in the right direction and loving what is! Here’s to loving my body and celebrating it!
