5 Steps To Love Your Body Now

No more saying, "I look fat!" Sweetie, it doesn't matter what you look like. You are beautiful! Do I have a perfect body shape? Do I have fat that you can see? What about my stretch marks? Yep got those too. But for the first time in my life, I finally love what I see. I see me, strong, empowered, and this is the year that I am going to rock my body at the pool and not cover myself up out of fear or shame! You flaunt your body when and how you want. You wanna wear a bikini to the beach, wear it! Remember that we all think we have flaws. Even the girl who looks like she has it all. She still has flaws. It is all about how you think about yourself that counts that helps to project to everyone else. Feel like a badass, you will project badassery. Feel like you don't fit in, then your energy will project it. Remember you are amazing. Fake it until you make it.

I will say, that these are some of the scariest images I have ever posted of myself before, ON SOCIAL MEDIA no less. I have never shared me in a swim suit before, nor have I ever felt amazing in my swim suit all because I finally believe in myself. But I am proud of my body and the fact that I have had 3 babies. I know that I don't have the perfect body. I know that a lot of people will find these pictures repulsive but you know what. I AM WORKING SO HARD TO BE HEALTHY, and it can be done for a plus size woman to be healthy and fit. Be you! Be true to yourself! And once you do that and recognize the beauty in yourself you will shine like the sun in the sky! 

3) YOU CAN LOSE THE WEIGHT! You can choose how you want to be. 
Everyone always says it, IT IS HARD WORK to lose weight! I still haven't lost all the weight from my last miscarriage when I got pregnant. And then at 9 months postpartum I am no where near where I was hoping to be. I have NEVER lost the weight through breastfeeding alone and right now I am down the most I ever have while breastfeeding. No supplementing with formula, and no pumping. All food for my babies came straight from my boobs. I am envious of women who can lose weight because of breastfeeding because it never happened for me. So know that you might not be able to lose the weight through breastfeeding. That it might take hard work and dedication to lose the weight, that it might take longer than 9 month to lose the weight but IT CAN BE DONE! 
Embrace what your body is going through right now. You are in the process of getting your body to be exactly how you want it to be. Rejoice in what your body is doing for you now. Supporting you while you exercise and train. Getting stronger. Fitter. Leaner. And getting into the best shape of your life. Remember to take time and take care of you and love what your body is doing for you. Enjoy the process. 

5) BE YOU! 
Don't forget who you are in this whole process. It is easy to forget that you still like to be pampered or go on dates, or wear cute clothing. Go out and get some tops or a dress that reflect who you are so you aren't lost in the process. Your body is changing, but it doesn't mean that you have to hide who you are because your body is changing! BE YOU! LOVE YOU! Enjoy the process and know that in just a few short months, you will be even closer to your goals, or at them. And if you aren't, you can keep on trying and following these simple steps to love you as you are now!
