Our @be_real_campaign for body confidence is now on Instagram! Go show it some love. Championing the #bodyconfidence movement since 2014. #Throwback to when @therealgokwan and @jameelajamilofficial met our CEO at the Body Confidence Awards in 2014.
When @sonnybillwilliams Secretly wants your photo 🙌🏼✨ don't worry I'll give it to you next time you're in ❤✔️ "Always be better than yesterday" You have to learn from your mistakes. Yes it sucks making mistakes and if you're like me you'll beat yourself up for ages but at the end of the day you need to make mistakes so you can learn and improve. So next time you make a mistake laugh it off and then don't do it again. You will never grow as a person if you don't f**k up. Learn to say yes don't be scared of what could happen because that's the only way you will learn to deal with different situations. Comment below something you want to improve on this week!

ALL OF THESE ARE THE SAME SIZE. The two pairs of pants were both from the petite section & the skirt was marked with a letter than correlated with that number. So, how come the first pair is squeezing the life out of me, the second pair is too big, and the skirt is loose around my waist? Funny you should ask... ‼️CLOTHING SIZES SHOULD ONLY BE USED AS A GUIDE TO FIND SOMETHING THAT FITS WELL/COMFORTABLY‼️ We attach so much emotion to the size of our clothing when the size isn't even a consistent aspect! I took this photo last week before leaving Chicago and lost the time to upload it. This was taken at the LOFT outlet because I felt like trying on some "adult clothes" while I waited for rush hour to pass. ‼️remember, we have been taught to value smaller clothing sizes. My best tip is that next time you go shopping, grab a few sizes then don't check the tag in the dressing room unless you find a fit that you like. ✨

WHEN YOU INTENTIONALLY GAIN WEIGHT 💪🏻😄❤️✨ Today was a week since my disaster day - discovering I'd lost significantly, disappointing my psych, feeling upset with myself, only to crash my car on the way home 💩 I think what hurt the most was that despite my efforts to challenge my ED by pushing myself with food challenges, none of this was recognised. It once again all came down to that number on the scales which had proven me a failure. And it was assumed my weight was indicative of my mental state 🙄 I was told things were bad; the word hospital was even mentioned....🏥 I realised that it wasn't actually my fault that my weight went down as I was actively trying my best to make positive progress! So I decided to prove just where my head was at 👊🏻 I would use the week to show I was in the right headspace and didn't need medical support again! I bumped up my meal plan, adding in additional supplements and little extras 🍓🍪🍩 I totally cut back on my exercise, reducing the amount of walking I did in a day 🏃🏻♀️ I sat with the uncomfortable feeling of fullness after each meal 😖 and ignored the intruding thoughts. It was mental agony and at times I felt like I just couldn't anymore. But today finally came and I asked to be weighed as soon as I walked into my appointment. To both our surprise (TW numbers mentioned) my weight went up 4kg from last week‼️ I immediately turned to my psych and said "Ha! I fixed it!" 😄🙌🏻 It's almost impossible for all of that to be weight gain for one week's time, but this shows that my body was functioning malnourished. When a starved body suddenly begins receiving nutrients it retains large amounts of water 💦 which is evident in a spike in weight. This proved to we'd both let things slip further than we thought and I did the right thing! And regardless of ED, I was proud of myself 💪🏻🏆 I did was I sought out to achieve and I convinced my psych that I was still just as strong and recovery focused as ever. It also shows that I DO have the willpower in me. So when you think that weight restoration is just impossible, remember that Korey did this! That if I can, you can #gains ❤️ All my love to you all xxx
SNACKS! 🍴 I was having the munchiest of munchy days...these are a few of my afternoon snack ideas: Rice cakes topped with nut butter, cacao nibs and strawberries and carrot and cucumber sticks with homemade zucchini hummus ❤ YUM- never forget the 4pm snack, it prevents you from overeating at dinner- DM me for more snack ideas 🙏🏻
Day 25 💜 #SelfLoveBootCamp ☺️ . Today is the last #embracethesquish day in this round of the Self Love Boot Camp 😐 And I found myself surprised this morning when I took this and I felt like I looked disgusting and horrible in the photo. I kept taking more photos and none of them felt right. Of course I take multiple photos usually but usually I at least like one of them. This morning not so much. And that's why I waited so long to post this. Because I wasn't sure how I felt 😕 But challenging myself and my ED voice is important and I won't miss my last chance to post an squishy photo during the bootcamp just because my ED voice says I'm not worthy of it. I would encourage every one of you to post a photo so I'm taking my own advice and doing it. 😬 . So, here's my squishy, fat, loveable belly served with a side of courage and self love 💪🏾💕 . We are all worth sooooo much more than that little voice inside our head tells us. Just because my body might not fit the societal norm doesn't make me any less valuable. I'm loved by those who care about me for more reasons than just my body. And you are too 😘💕 . Love yourself today👸🏾
NEWS FLASH!! We're having a baby!!! 🤰🏼 Here I am showing off my three month bump post work out with the wonderful @100percentmma who is so committed as a PT he's signed up to do an antenatal and postnatal PT course. Gotta love him!! 💪🏼 It's been a whirlwind few months for my husband and I. We didn't expect to get pregnant so quickly (turns out first times a charm!) however we have been overjoyed since we found out we were going to have a baby. It was just the good news we've been waiting for. 💗 It hasn't been an easy first trimester, I've felt sick, tired, emotional and have really struggled with my body image. Although I've suffered from over a decade of eating disorders in the past (which I have fully recovered from), I honestly thought when I was pregnant I wouldn't even think twice about how I looked. The honest truth is, no matter what the reason, it's always scary when you start to lose control of your body... I have good days and really tough days, but have started to write down daily goals which should help me manage things day by day as my body changes and grows. 🌈 I'm going to be writing about my experiences being pregnant, how I stay healthy and some nutritional tips I've learned along the way. ✨ Stay tuned! . . . #KnowYourNutri#Wellbeing#Wellness#Nutrition#SelfHelp#Love#SelfLove#Mindfulness#Freedom#Health#Healthy#HealthyMind#HappyHeart#EatingDisorder#BodyImage#Food#Care#SelfCare#Foodie#Mindset#Pregnancy#HealthyMum#ovaries#Hormones#BlogPost#ThreeMonths#SecondTrimester#Endocrine#HealthyDiet#HappyPregnancy
I just spent the weekend playing at the lake with wonderful friends and you know what my definitely-not-a-size-2 butt did? Rocked a bikini with a big ole smile because I was too busy having fun to worry about what other people think of my body. : Summer should be filled with laughter and friendships and making memories and if you stop stressing out about your jiggly thighs and your not-so-perfect abs for ten minutes you might actually enjoy it. Maybe you're still working on being healthier (🤚🏻 I know I am) but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate yourself in the meantime. : Wear the bikini, guys! If you want to do it then do it for you and do it without apology. Leave the self-doubt at home, don't pack your criticism and be sure to throw some love into your weekender bag. Spend time with people who won't judge you for the things you constantly judge yourself about and don't worry about standards you had nothing to do with setting up. : #selflove#loveyourself#doyou#bodyimage#bodypositivity#rockit#realtalktuesday#noshame#noshameinmygame
Hey guys, I'm Kimmy! I've been married nine years and have three of the cutest kids. I'm a licensed nail tech and nail instructor in Ogden, Utah. I've struggled with body image issues for most of my life and after 3 c-sections in 6 years, my soft belly escalated my insecurities. I'm turning 30 in September and I want nothing more than to be healthy and happy and love the skin I'm in. My exercises of choice are hiking, high fitness, and the body sculpting bible for women. I recently started counting my macros and love the flexibility macro counting gives you. I hope you'll follow along my fitness journey with me!
✨ SOUL SQUEEGEE ✨ A 1:1 session in which I help you clear away the muck that's clouding your view of how fucking magic you are. I got back to "work" today with one of these, coaching a soul sister and I'm beyond inspired. So is she. It's so beautiful how much we can do in just one session. It is truly my joy to help women see themselves in a new light. She gave my sessions this name and I love it so much I'm using it for a special kind of session I decided to offer. Instead of a discovery call, where I tell you about what's possible in working with me, this is a 2 hour deep dive session where you get to experience it. Because there's an energy exchange, I don't hold back. I give you my full self. What kind of muck can we clear away in 2 hours? It can be anything - food, body, mom, boss, partner, self-doubt, self-criticism...whatever it is that's blocking you. Maybe you know what it is, or you maybe you don't and you just feel stuck. Whatever it is, we'll dig deep and look at it with love and then clear that shit out of your way so you can get back to the business of being your badass self. Afterwards if you feel complete and ready to move forward on your own, awesome. Or you might decide you want to continue our work together and we can talk about it more. The best part is Im offering these at a discount - 2 hours, $200. No obligation to work with me more, but if you do I'll credit it to a longer term package (seriously). If you have thought about working with a life coach, you're ready to heal your relationship with your body or food, or you've just been inspired by my posts and curious about what might be possible for you if we worked together, this is your chance, let's do this. I'm only offering this rate for the next week (normally 2 hours with me is $300). If you're interested in booking one, comment below or send me a message and I'll send you a link ✨❤️🙏
(Check out my IG story for more "Then" pictures) Heeeyyyy instagram so I just wanted to share some pictures of me in my recent years. Everyone always post their weight loss journey and that's great I love seeing them but no one ever brings attention when skinny people gain weight we also struggle being skinny. not everyone wants to be skinny. In society Its wrong to call someone fat but it's okay comment on how "skinny" one is (not in a good way) trust me I've gotten those comments "omg you're so skinny" with a stank face on. Thin ppl get bullied too just cause you call us skinny doesn't mean it automatically makes us feel good. I hated being called skinny I still do and I have come along way I am a lot healthier than I used to be I used to go days without eating a good meal eating nothing but frozen food I never purposely didn't eat I never had a problem with eating I'd just like to throw that out there but I was skinny because I didn't want to cook because I was lazy because I preferred to eat hot Cheetos , junk food just crap all day I preferred to eat that then to get my ass off the couch and cook a meal I just want to bring awareness to this issue of "skinny" folks lol I was skinny but I was never happy with that mainly because others had no issue pointing it out to me I never got past 118 and I am happy to say I weigh 143lbs and I've never been happier 😁 #Weight#Body#bodyimage#bodytransformation#weightgain#muscle#heathy#fit#mystory#ilovemybody#lbs#yogachangedmylife#running#runner#run#runningchangedmylife#run#fitness#excercise#thin#inspire#inspiration#insperational#yogi#yoga#yogainpiration#transformationtuesday
I wanted to take a minute to give a huge shout out to this guy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's super easy to get busy and get distracted by everyday life and the grind! But this guy has stood beside me through everything! I have been working my butt off these last few weeks, working my full time job and then coming home to work some more! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He has made me dinner COUNTLESS nights, he has stood by me and encouraged me and loved me through EVERYTHING! And last night when I had a major meltdown and was feeling really discouraged and was falling asleep on the couch, he helped me up, walked me to the bathroom to make sure I brushed my teeth, walked me to bed, gave me one of the best pep talks of my life where he told me he loved me and he was proud of me and that I had nothing to be disappointed over and then he tucked me into bed so I could get some much needed sleep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Life has not been easy but I'm so grateful for him. For the encouragement he constantly gives me. I love that I can make him proud of me by being the best version of myself and for being SO HAPPY after feeling sad and miserable for so long! It's been a hard season, a hard chapter filled with some wonderful moments, and I would not be where I am without him by my side! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Babe, I love you more than anything! Thank you for loving me, for choosing me, and for reminding me why I do this every day! I'm so grateful for you! ❤️#pruvit#drinkinthekoolaid#stoked#bettertogether#ketoup#boyfriend#boyfriendlove#igettokisshim#myboyfriendsbetterthanyours
“ I wake up every morning, hungry just like an important part of the human population. The most common thing to do is to grab some food, right? But something I do most of the time when I am feeling at my lowest is to either not get up until breakfast time is over or to get up and pace around in my bedroom then in the kitchen to only come back empty-handed in my bedroom. I do this while biting either my nails or rocking back and forth. What goes through my mind is a massive amount of equations and a very frightening database of caloric values I have researched from the past if not simply the idea of skipping the meal all together. If I have a calorie intake goal, I will remind myself before I even get up. In between the moment I get up and I go to the kitchen, I would had gone to the bathroom at least once to face the mirror and eye-out any “positive” or “negative” changes to my body a.k.a “Did I gain weight or did I lose any?”. This is known commonly as body-check: a time during which an individual suffering from an eating disorder scrutinizes every inch of their body in hopes of seeing a change to their liking. Personally, I mostly check my collarbones, I suck in to see how small from the side my waist can be, my thighs, I check my thigh gap by sitting and checking if I can put my hand between whilst my knees are together and my lower belly that I hate with undying passion. Some days, I see a difference and still feel like shit, some days I don’t and I’ll feel evern shittier. Why? Who knows.” Now you know. A part of my journal. A little part of my day. I think people need to know that people with eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes. Be kind, be caring and spread love. #awareness#eatingdisorder#recovery#help#food#problem#mentalhealth#anorexia#bulimia#bodyimage#depression#life#travel#journey#wellness#photooftheday#health
The fact is that your fitness routine parallels your life, whether you like it or not.⠀ ⠀ Fitness needs to be a practice of self care. Yet most of us are using it as penance.⠀ ⠀ - We only move in certain ways to burn the most calories or make up for food we ate…⠀ ⠀ - Or maybe we don’t exercise at all because exercise has always just felt like penance.⠀ ⠀ Imagine…⠀ ⠀ - If you could reconnect with your body by only moving in ways you LOVE?⠀ ⠀ - If you could throw all the preconceived body ideals out the window and just focus on being your amazing self?⠀ ⠀ How much more JOYFUL would your life be?⠀ ⠀ The fitness industry has a habit of telling us that we aren’t good enough.⠀ ⠀ Guess what? You are good enough.⠀ ⠀ Would you like to learn how to implement the above?
