Love the simplicity of this image ❤️ one of the first things clients say to me is “I don’t know how to pose sexy”. The awesome thing is you do not have to worry about posing! I will tell you exactly what to do, from how to move your body, your hands and even what to do with your eyes and lips and how to move your chin. Sometimes that involves moving your body in ways you’ve never done before. But sometimes it also involves sitting on a chair and simply looking at the camera like @empress_toro did here!

@natasha_crys_ ✨: I am not a fan of the term “Flaw”. Nobody is perfect but who really considers what is a flaw on YOUR body? Who said cellulite and stretch marks and scars and fat (and then some) are bad physicality’s? And more importantly, why do so many of us follow what others say? It can be a never ending battle, only when you don’t change the meaning behind your “flaws”. Embrace yourself now, the way you would embrace great change. Be kind to yourself the way you would be to others. Understand that, you give power to your words, even the ones to describe yourself. Use your power and your “flaws” to uplift yourself in every way.

Eu não to aguentando esse look da @787shirts !!!!!!! Que que eu posso falar? Me patrocina pro resto da vidaaaa, nunca te pedi nada 🥰🙋🏾‍♀️
Eu to muito Garotas Ricas que correm atrás do próprio money 💃🏾
Vamos falar do look! Recebi muitas mensagens quando recebi esse look querendo saber dos tamanhos! Eu pedi tudo 58! Jaqueta e Saia porque queria que ficasse bem de boa nada apertando. A Camiseta eu já tinha comprado quando lançou e é a 6G. A saia tem fechamento em botões e tem um comprimento bom pouquinho acima do joelho pra mim (1,69) 
A Jaqueta tem a modelagem mais Boyfriend que eu amoooo e resumindo é aquele look perfeito assim ou separando as peças. Gostaram? 
Me conta tudoooooo 💕

Work on you, for you. 
You👏🏻are👏🏻worth👏🏻it! I wore shorts today. I haven’t worn shorts outside of my house in over FIVE years! I stared at my cellulite and stretch marks (yes I have them on my legs) In the mirror and said “screw it.” It was honestly extremely liberating. I’m starting to not give a damn about what others think of me. So if you’re having troubles wearing items of clothing that bring you out of your comfort zone, my advice is- wear the damn shorts, swimsuit, high waisted jeans, crop tops, leggings, whatever it may be. Just do it and own it. You will always be your biggest critic. Stop telling yourself that you can’t wear something because you aren’t skinny enough. #bodypositive #selflove #youareenough #effyourbeautystandards

PSA: this is a reminder that all bodies are welcome here. That your body is amazing and deserves the best care. That this space doesn’t dismiss pain because of size or weight. You will be seen, heard, and treated with care and compassion. Massage tables are generally rated to hold 500 lbs (some can hold more) and many practitioners also have ways to adjustable their tables for comfort and support. I welcome you to my practice and I can also recommend other health practitioners with approaches and attitudes like mine 🙌🏼

Being thin is ok, being curvy is ok, and being fat is ok.
You know what isn't ok? Hating on someone based on their size.
So in the spirit of this, here is my beautiful fat body covered in stretch marks. 
Don't let others bring you down. 💚✌

We fall. 
We break. 
We fail. 
But then, 
We rise. 
We heal. 
We overcome. - quote found on Pinterest. If you know who wrote it please tell me so I can give them credit.

Social media can be fantastic as a way to connect, especially for those of us with mobility and health issues. The flip side is that it can be quite damaging to compare ourselves to the 'highlight' reel of other people's lives. Even in real life, what we see of other peoples lives is generally the good stuff. We don't tend to see the struggles, failures, arguments, stress and strains of day to day life for other people and it can make us feel like we're failing ourselves. 
Nobody's life is perfect.  Everyone has shit to.deal with. Everyone puts a filter on their life to present it publicly. Dont compare reality to the highlight reel. Keep it real. 💜💜💜 @tiredgirlontour

You are glorious. Your body is glorious. It is a vessel for your soul. It is a tool for you to use to carry you through life. Your body is NOT there for you to focus the majority of your energy towards. Your body is NOT the goal of your life. Your life is there to form relationships, enjoy love, to create, to explore the world and yourself, to learn, to put energy towards your interests, passions, and hobbies, to find pleasure and joy and excitement, and so many other things that AREN'T about expending time, energy, and negative emotions trying to change your body when it's absolutely fine as it. Your life is about SO MUCH MORE. You are missing the world and missing yourself and missing what brings you joy by making how your body looks a priority. So start (or continue) your journey towards accepting your body as it is, because you deserve it. So, so much.

What would you rather be spending your time doing? Let me in the comments below.

I call this piece “Eat A Salad”. I love incorporating food, snacks, entrees, whole ass meals into my editorial works. It’s sends out a “screw you” to all the folks who have a problem with big people snacking, enjoying food openly. 
It also normalizes and helps others who have a fear of being ridiculed for eating or getting seconds. For my people who are closet eaters, my people who wait until they get home to eat, and for my folks who’ve had food items taken out of their shopping carts deemed unhealthy by “concerned” strangers and for the ones who have been shamed at the meal table and told to grab a Diet Coke and eat a salad. This one is especially for you. 
To all the folks who praise thin influencers and models for eating a bucket of chicken or posing with a whole entire pizza in front of them, calling them brave, just “hungry”, or cute af when a larger person does it you bombard them with vomit and pig and whale emojis. Belittle them. Call them disgusting. This one is for you, too. 
Every fat person has tried eating salads. Every person whose suffered from an eating disorder has tried eating salads. Diet cokes. Sugar free drinks. Cutting back. Diet pills. Clean eating. No eating. 
We know every trick, every diet, every program there is to know. So, your “eat a salad” and other unwarranted and unsolicited diet info can die a lonely death. 
Because it isn’t wanted here. 
Furthermore, I don’t want to hear about your diet either. I’m sorry, but I’m over being controlled by calories and pant sizes. *Tongue pop*
What’s your favorite snacks and foods? Do you feel as though you are ruled by pants sizes and/or counting calories? Do you ever just wanna tell people stfu when they obsess over their new diet? Let’s chat. 📸 @alexis.devaney

❤️MY JOURNEY TO CONFIDENCE❤️ ⁣ ⁣
⁣
I used to struggle with my body image, and for years I tried to eat my emotions away… I struggled for years.⁣
⁣
When a bad relationship with food sticks with you for +20 years of your life, it begins to affect other areas of your life too... I felt the need to binge to try and make the pain go away but I knew how guilty I would feel afterwards and I knew that after so many years of neglecting my body that was time to make a change.⁣
⁣
I started focusing on my health when I was 18 years old.⁣
⁣
I starved myself for 3 months and lost +50 pounds.⁣
⁣
It was an exhausting and very dark time in my life. ⁣
⁣
One day I looked at myself in the mirror and I was mortified by what I saw.⁣
⁣
My uncle had mentioned that I looked emaciated… And he was right.⁣
⁣
I no longer looked like myself.⁣
⁣
That was when I really started from the bottom, and worked my way up.⁣
⁣
I started loving my body and treating it right because I knew it was capable of so much more than how I was treating it. ⁣
⁣
Fast forward some years and I started tracking my macros, learning about food, and then eating intuitively. ⁣
⁣

❤️MY JOURNEY TO CONFIDENCE❤️ ⁣ ⁣

I used to struggle with my body image, and for years I tried to eat my emotions away… I struggled for years.⁣

When a bad relationship with food sticks with you for +20 years of your life, it begins to affect other areas of your life too... I felt the need to binge to try and make the pain go away but I knew how guilty I would feel afterwards and I knew that after so many years of neglecting my body that was time to make a change.⁣

I started focusing on my health when I was 18 years old.⁣

I starved myself for 3 months and lost +50 pounds.⁣

It was an exhausting and very dark time in my life. ⁣

One day I looked at myself in the mirror and I was mortified by what I saw.⁣

My uncle had mentioned that I looked emaciated… And he was right.⁣

I no longer looked like myself.⁣

That was when I really started from the bottom, and worked my way up.⁣

I started loving my body and treating it right because I knew it was capable of so much more than how I was treating it. ⁣

Fast forward some years and I started tracking my macros, learning about food, and then eating intuitively. ⁣

Once I started listening to my body and repairing my relationship with food, my results came QUICK... ⁣

I started seeing MASSIVE changes in my body and mind, and that's what has kept my fire burning. ⁣

I've grown from the +160lbs down to the 120’slbs woman I am today…⁣

But the number on the scale does’t mean anything to me.⁣

I’m STRONGER, MORE CONFIDENT, AND HAPPIER in my own skin than ever before.⁣

I've had a hate/love relationship with my body all my life. When I gained I would lose quickly. & when I lost it I would fall right back into my unhealthy habits and gain it right back 🤦🏾‍♀️
.
.
.
Two weeks ago I started eating more veggies, eating less junk, and drinking more water. I'm finally at a point where I'm not obsessing over my body. Instead I've learned to love it even if others don't find it beautiful, sexy, or whatever else label they decide they want to put on me. How YOU view yourself is the only opinion that really matters. Eating healthy is an act of self love. Being active is an act of self love. Taking care of yourself is an act of self love. Although I've only made very small changes I can still feel my body appreciating them 🤗
.
. . 
What's holding you back from becoming one with yourself? What's stopping you from becoming your best self? Even if it's baby steps, why not start today!?

Top #effyourbeautystandards posts

Today I was reading an article that featured “a guide to all the non-surgical cosmetic procedures people are getting for ‘Instagram Face’” and I cannot wait for this nonsense to stopping ✋🏼. You know what kind of guide we need to reas and follow? The one that shows different people who actually looks different and celebrate their differences without putting down who doesn’t “fit” in the narrow idea of what is the “right” way to look.
•
•
For years I have talked to clients and critics alike about why I don’t upload makeup tutorials and, most of all, why I don’t wear those extremely defined and shaped eyebrows (which I dubbed “Instagram eyebrows” and everybody understands what I am talking about). My answer is simple: I rather work in person with you in order to help you develop your own personal style and find your own beauty than being another Instagrammer who pushes you towards looking exactly as the pictures you see on your feed. And, more now than ever, on real life thanks to “Instagram Face” phenomenon as the ubiquitous blend of Insta-approved facial features that I won’t describe here because it makes me upset.
• •
Feeling empowered as a woman, POC, non-binary or just someone who doesn’t follow the social constructs of what physical beauty artificial standards dictate, should not be about aesthetics or clothing sizes. But feeling validated to exist in a world of semi-clones definitely helps as a way to reclaim your power over your life.
• •
Let’s not give up. Neutral body image is not a lost battle. Let’s make it loud and clear how do we look is not even the most important thing about ourselves. •

giveaway time! i’ll send one lucky person a copy of the intuitive eating workbook. US only please, and you’ll need to be over 18. there’s a IE workbook for teenagers if you’re not - you can find it on amazon.

here are the rules:

1. tag a friend who you think might like to learn more about intuitive eating by thursday night at 11:59pm CST.

2. that’s it.

i don’t really want to make people also follow me in order to participate, but it’d be cool. i’ll message the random winner on friday. if you’re interested in learning more about intuitive eating and the non-diet approach, i like to think that following folks on IG can be a good place to start. it’s helpful to immerse yourself in these messages, follow the folks they share info from, and begin to build your bubble. at the very least, check out what @evelyntribole and @elyseresch are writing about!

intuitive eating can be life changing. i say that with passion and complete sincerity. good luck! ☀️☀️

COMPARISON & CHRONIC ILLNESS⁠⠀
⁠⠀
📸my collab with @thisthingtheycallrecovery⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We've all seen those illustrations and quotes reposted time and time again on our Instagram feeds: 'Don't compare your real life to someone else's highlight reel.' ⁠⠀
And of course, this is something that is important to remember when you spend any amount of time online. Those automatic feelings of comparison can so easily creep in. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The chronic illness community is not immune to this, and comparison pops up in a number of ways that I think are important to be aware of, especially because they can manifest in really damaging ways: both in terms of how we treat other people, and how we feel about ourselves. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Firstly, it's so important to remember that just because you have the same condition as someone else, it doesn't mean it will manifest in the same way. My best friend has the same conditions as me and we're basically polar opposites in how and where our symptoms impact us. Just because your body may or may not be able to do certain things as others, it's really important to not use this as a baseline for how you see your own illness.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One thing I will say in relation to this, however, is that there are is a reason why I have written about privilege and chronic illness, especially when it comes to management. Some people (and I include myself in this) are privileged to have access to levels of care and support that many do not, and that can't exist in a vacuum. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We also need to get over this idea that chronic illness is somehow a competition, and also remember that the way we live, cope, and communicate our conditions are unique to each of us. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
For example, many people make the assumption that because I 'cope' with my conditions in a certain way, they think I have it way more figured out than them. And that's not necessarily the case. It's my personality and the fact that this has been over 20 years of my life. If you've been ill for 2, of course our experiences will be different! I've had a long time to learn and process, and I still struggle everyday. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So yeah just something to think about that once again comes down to ‘we’re all different’😂

So very true. 
Social media can be very misleading. It's important to remember when looking at someone's pictures that they are only showing you their best side, their highlight reel. They will not show you their moments of weakness or failures, which we all have, or unflattering photos, because they tying to impress the online world so you will return to their page. Please, do not compare yourself to someone's highlight reel because whether or not they show it, their life is not perfect and they don't always have it all together. Give yourself a break and accept that the grass always looks greener when you are comparing it to something that is set up and a selective number of pictures for you to see. #embracingmytrueself #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit
