The weight loss journey, The goal is to feel good ๐Ÿ’• :

The weight loss journey, The goal is to feel good ๐Ÿ’•
I’m trying to lose weight to FEEL GOOD. To have energy to keep up with my toddler. To not be consumed with trying to hide my body. To not hurt when I move.

Being body positive can sound like we’re saying ‘your body is perfect the way it is so changing it means you don’t accept it’. And I don’t agree.

To me, being body positive means your body is perfect the way it is and you have the right to change it. It’s your body baby. You love your body in all stages and you treat it however feels good to you.

I dove into a mental health journey the same time I dove into a weight loss journey. And the most important thing I’ve learned while healing my mind? Our bodies are the least interesting things about ourselves, we are so much more than that.

You can have your goal body and still be in the same place as before mentally. Finding true self love, finding what you love about your actual self (not appearance) and understanding they are separate....that has been huge for me.

Self love has been a mental journey non comparable to my weight loss journey. Two different things. One is about how I feel on the inside, how my inner voice talks, what I focus my thoughts on. The other is about getting my body to a place that feels strong and healthy.

I’m a big believer that you can love the shit out of yourself while also wanting to make some changes.
