from @iskra When all we see is weight gain we negate all the life we’ve lived
As a society we perpetuate an obsession with physical appearance by judging one another and commenting on weight change I’ve had hundreds of comments over the years about the size of my body –
especially postpartum So when I look in the mirror and see weight gain I choose instead to see all the other things I’ve gained from living life
Not being consumed with the fear of weight gain or the obsession with weight loss thanks to recovery has allowed me to achieve so much more Maybe you’re not there yet.
Maybe you still only see your weight when you look in the mirror or hear the comments about your body louder than all the other compliments about who you are You can and will get there
Start off by thinking of all the things you’ve gained that aren’t to do with your weight / appearance, write them down in a journal or a post it note on your mirror
And start finding ways to compliment yourself and others that aren’t appearance based (swipe for some inspo and save it for when you need a reminder)We are all so much more than our bodies.
As you go through life cherish all the moments you collect that make you who you are today.
If you recreate this please tag me so I can reshare would love to show the world all of your magic✨Photo description: [2 side by side images of iskra in 2015 and 2021 sat on the bed with arms up in the same pose.
She has gained weight since the first pic but feels empowered because she knows she is more than her size and the next photo has text overlay of the many things she’s accomplished, gained, tried over the years.
The next 3 slides are 15. Non appearance based compliments to inspire us to change the conversation about who we are not what we look like] …#bodyacceptance #bodytransformation #bodyconfidence #beforeandafter #selflovejourney
