Your weight is not the most important part of this life.
Your relationship with yourself and your body is.
It’s really all about feeling good in your body. There’s never a perfect number or size. You deserve to feel comfortable and happy in your body. Perfect is not what we are striving for here – not anymore. Peace, gratitude and positive thoughts towards our body is the true definition of a healthy body and what will set you free.
The truth is, when you are taking care of your inner health, your body will come to its happy place and that looks different for everyone.
A question to ask yourself; did your family or home environment make ‘thin’ or ‘weight’ a thing? Was it a topic of conversation in your household? Was thin idealised at your school or in your social media feed? Is that where the pressure stems from? It’s great to be aware of this and know, it’s not your fault. A good therapist can really help you let go of these beliefs you are holding onto. I had to do the same.
I want you to know that it is unrealistic to feel good about your body every single day. Remove this expectation. The goal is to feel good and confident in your body most of the time. We all have days where we feel a little less comfortable in our skin. On these days, I personally find deleting social media, have more downtime, a swim if possible, practicing yoga and eating good food always makes me feel better.
Be kind to yourself and others, always.
