I know how this feels. That bikini – yes the one you bought to motivate yourself into slimness still doesn’t fit. You were supposed to look like J-Lo but feel more like Jell-o. Your tummy was supposed to be runway flat by now, instead it seems to be trying to run away.
“Expectations are thieves” said Jada Pinkett in her great new show Red Table Talks. The blessing in front of you is lost if you keep looking for everything to be picture perfect and getting discouraged when it isn’t.
Yes you can still blast your body and get your goals accomplished, but you should also work on being body positive and accept and enjoy yourself as you are.

Body Positive Tips
- Ask yourself would you say that to a friend? If not don’t say it to yourself!
- Appreciate all the badass things your bod can do, from hello! walking to full-on twerking upside down.
- Remember your weight does not mean you are healthy/unhealthy just by itself so don’t let the scales get you down. They’re not the full story.
- Only do exercise/workouts you really enjoy and that make you feel like you’re soaring, not defeated and hiding at the back of the room
- Stop posting pictures from 10 years ago or ‘before the baby weight’. Celebrate yourself as you are now, you are beautiful at any size.
