Hey you. Just a gentle reminder that as swimsuit season arrives youre gonna hear a lot of bikini body  nonsense and Skinny talk. Just remember that when a company says GET SKINNY FOR SUMMER what theyre really saying is get all the things weve taught you Skinny means.  . Skinny=acceptance beauty love power adoration comfort  Fat=lazy uneducated gross unworthy ugly  . Thats why you see Skinny popcorn thin thin bars the word skinny in car commercials and even skinny water.  . Advertising companies use word association to perpetuate an idea and in this case the idea is that your current body could never be your summer body. That one is BETTER. That one is SKINNIER. SKINNIER is better.  . I hope as the season comes you can make a splash in the world of body positivity and remember that if you really understand marketing you can understand a major source of your body image issues  .

You know whats really crazy??? This photo makes me feel really insecure. I dont even know why. But Im challenging whatever voice in my head is telling me Im not good enough by taking small steps to break away from the need to be perfect.  . As much work as Ive done I still get insecure. A lot. Sometimes about things that Im positive nobody else even notices. Sometimes my friends who I think are flawless ANGELS say stuff about their bodies that I cant even fathom because I dont see it. But they do. Why?  . Think of a part of your body or your face that youre insecure about. Now ask yourself where that insecurity came from. Half the time its an insecurity you LEARNED. You internalized the images fed to you and since you werent a carbon copy (which none of us are) you assumed you were lesser than.  . Today I want you to challenge that voice in some small way. Whether it be challenging the root of that insecurity doing something that scares you or engaging in some much needed self care ITS CRUCIAL you take every opportunity to fight back against that mentality you internalized.  .

Honestly this picture CALLS ME OUT right now. I keep envisioning this new and improved me-this version of myself that is more confident and happy but also hotter and perfectly balanced. I can feel the tendency toward using that fixated image of perfection and attractiveness creeping back into my mind as I set goals for myself.  . I dont need to lose weight to glow up. I dot need to change my hair if I dont want to. I dont need to get ripped before I can show my face to my peers back in Utah or h Get Ripped, Glo Up, You Are My Favorite, Prevent Hair Loss, Need To Lose Weight, Attractiveness, Envision, Setting Goals

I was shopping with my friend the other day when I picked up a shirt I thought would look great on her and she remarked that she wouldnt fit it. I said simply get a size up and she responded I just hate the idea of buying a large.  . This is a conversation Im sure youve had with yourself before.
