Respect voor mijn vriend, de fotograaf, die heel veel geduld heeft 😂 Dit soort fratsen haal ik namelijk de hele tijd uit.. 'doe eens normaal' 'doe die tong naar binnen' 'ben je klaar?' 'ja leuk, we hebben thuis ook 2 honden' zijn dan ook veel voorkomende uitspraken tijdens zo'n dag. ▪️ ▫️ #fitdutchies #fitgirl #fitgirlsnl #swimming #fitnessmodel #potd #ootd #photography #bodypositive #bopo #bopowarrior #loveyourself #selflove #positivevibes #womenempowerment #str#strongn #entrepreneur #booty #fun #curves #curvygirl #bodybuilding #strong #fitfamnl #workout #instafit #dutch #femaleentrepreneur #girlboss #bossbabe

💔 This is one of the many thousands of letters I've received over the years. It completely breaks my heart, but also gives me hope the my little part is changing a life and the inspiration to continue talking about #bodyimage and healthy #selfesteem until I run out of breath " My 14 year old daughter saw the @abctv program on Australian Story while in hospital because she has a very low heart rate due to rapid weight loss from dieting. My daughter's eating disorder has made me much more aware of what images are being presented as normal. Thank god someone is doing something to help normalize things. My daughter has had people talk to her about modelling and I am glad she saw a program that presented a different type of model. Even if it is just being able to identify with a model rather than ruining her life starving so she looks more like the ridiculously skinny high fashion models. We have a long way to go before my daughter accepts her average size body and gets back to just enjoying life but I am glad she happened to see the program. Thank you, Sarah" #useyourvoice #fuelthefire #bethechange #bopowarrior massive #hugs to everyone going through this horrific journey, we won't give up on you, ever!

Tijd voor een eerlijke update. Ik doe heel erg mn best en ik vecht elke dag voor recovery maar het is echt heel erg zwaar. Ik heb intens veel dwanggedachtes over dat ik mezelf iets aan moet doen. Klinkt misschien heel heftig maar helaas is dat al jaren dagelijkse kost voor mij. Hoop dat ik daar ooit vanaf kom. En ik doe zo mn best met selflove en acceptatie en vergeving maar het is gewoon shit allemaal in mn hoofd. - - Maar goed. Koppie op en moed houden. Ik ga zo goed mogelijk voor mezelf zorgen en gewoon selflove momentjes nemen ook al schreeuwt mn hoofd dat dat niet mag. Fuck dat. Screw you evil thoughts.

Reading #anewmodel by @theashleygraham and she talks about how runway-looks for bigger sized models have traditionally been SAFE and CONVENTIONAL. That we don’t see enough EDGY or AVANT-GARDE beauty-looks on bigger sized models because we feel like we’re walking a precarious line already, putting a size 16 on the runway. 🙄 In her 2016 collaboration with #AdditionElle, she challenged the beauty & fashion industry (yet again) by having ALL of the models wear RED EYELINER in the show. NOT an easy thing to pull off but THEY KILLED IT! 🔥🔥🔥 It seems like such a small decision but the impact in the modeling and fashion industry was/is HUGE and THAT ripples out to the rest of us. People like me, a short plus-sized, brown-skinned mom. All traits of which, have NOT been represented in the fashion world (much). That is, until recently with the #bodypositivity movement and various models in larger sizes breaking down barriers, like Ashley Graham and @tessholliday (two of my faves 😍). I feel increasingly empowered to be a woman to watch instead of someone to hide. We can be any size/skin color, be pre/post baby, and ALSO be FIERCE & SEXY. Frankly, it takes a lot of practice to look in the mirror (the magnified one’s are super humbling 😂😫) and not pick myself apart...and we all have our bad days...BUT, if I do something enough times it becomes a habit, right?!! On that note: Today’s #mua is inspired by this. Never would I have tried red eyeliner smoked out anywhere around my eyes until I read this book...but I kind of like it. 😬😳❤️😍 . . . #bopo #beawomantowatch #selflove #potd #bea#beautyger #bopowarrior #practiceselflove #ashleygraham #fashion #beauty #plussizemodel #curvy #beyou #beauthentic #beautyateverysize #beautyinsideandout #expecttheunexpected #model #embraceyourcurves #nyx #arbonne #cleanbeauty #animalcrueltyfree #vegancosmetics #wakeupmakeup #makeupaddict

The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but building and embracing the new. Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you have now! I’m so lucky to have been involved in bringing in the new idea of normal. Everyone check out @swimweargalore blog and read all about these incredible women standing next to me and their own experiences and journey with gaining body confidence. Also you can read my journey aswell☀️♥️ • • • • • #iwillembracesummer #swimwearforeverybody #positivevibes #effyourbeautystandards #plu#plussizeswimwear #plussizeandproud #plussizemodel #unapologeticallyme #happy #honourmycurves #summervibes #swimweargalore #beachbody #beautyhasnosize #bigsmile #nothingbutsmiles #aussiecurves #bodypositive #bop#bopoior #bopo #plussize #plussizefashion #bringiton #alternativecurves #united #swimwearmodel #inspire #curvesaresexy #perfectbody #newnormal

These workouts keep me sane. Not only am I staying in shape, but mentally I’m getting stronger too. Never underestimate the power of a good workout. 💪🏽 Lifting weights a few days a week is a great addition to my #running schedule. It keeps my core strong, helps my legs get faster on the trails, helps my arms grow so they can lift all the heavy things. Lifting is good. Don’t be afraid of it ladies. 🙌🏽 Weights are @powerblockdumbbells 🏋🏼‍♀️ • • • • #fitso #fitfam #fitness #weightlifter #runnersofinstagram #strongwomen #bodybuilding #bodypositive #sel#selflovefirst #selflove #fitnessfreak #healthblogger #progress #sweatpink #fitnessblogger #sac#sacramentoblogger #sacramento #strongerthanyesterday #BOPO #strongchicks #girlswholiftheavy #bopowarrior #sanfranciscoblogger #effyourbeautystandards

How you ate the night before (or meal before) should not impact how you choose to eat when you are hungry again- 🍇🍓🍌🥑🍎 Last night I enjoyed a feast with my church family, and this morning I enjoyed a full breakfast! 🕊 I reminded myself and allowed my new voice of love, to listen to my body and check in with it’s needs’. AND NOT🙅🏻‍♀️the old voice of judgement and fear, to tell me lies about how I should eat. • I spent years trying to play catch up, Never feeling connected to my body. I was in a constant battle, punishing myself for ‘eating too much’ or rewarding myself for ‘eating too little’ My brain was in overdrive and my body was crying out to be heard. SURRENDER! 🕊🙏🏼❤️ There is no right or wrong way to eat. If we choose to feed our bodies in fear. Fear is what our bodies will digest. CHOOSE LOVE! To nourish in love And digest in love! Some days are better than others and finding a balance, in the imbalance is a PROCESS, but it’s the process I choose! HAPPY MONDAY to all you intelligent, funny, beautiful and PREFECT PEOPLE🦋 we are in this love TOGETHER ❤️ . . . #bodypositive #bopowarrior #BodyPositiveSA #eatingdisorderrecovery #recoveryisworthit #riotsnotdiets #intuitiveeating #radicalbodylove #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #allbodiesaregoodbodies #everyBODYisbeautiful #yoga #balance #unconditionallove

Walk away from anything that gives you bad vibes. There is no need to explain or make sense of it. It's your life so do what makes you happy.

This is true of all things. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of food you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of love you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of gratitude you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of rest you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of respect you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 When you starve yourself of hope you feed your demons. ~ 🍂 Nourish yourself fully. Don’t let the emptiness of your mind and stomach consume you. Reward yourself. Treat yourself. Remember that self care is not selfish. ~ 🍂 Only those who have conquered their demons can help others. Can make a difference in the world. ~ 🍂 So pick up the fork, the phone, the journal, the book, or whatever it is you need and nourish your soul. You deserve it. The world will ultimately thank you for it. And maybe one day you will too.

I have huge respect for the words of @cleowade and this post from @glamourmag rings especially true. I am adding my voice to the call to unsubscribe and opt out of diet and fitness culture along with all of the other “shoulds”. I am a feminist and i watched the movement from my girlhood leave our bodies out. This go round can be different. In 2018, let’s include the powerful space of our bodies as we unsubscribe! Don’t waste your precious time and energy shrinking to fit anybody’s ideal. Stay true. Do you. Resist! #resist #resistdietculture #unsubsribetotheshoulds #optout #staytruedoyou #newyeardoyou #fuckdietculture #nondiet #edwarrior #edrecovery #anarecovery #bedrecovery #ednosrecovery #bulimiarecovery #bopowarrior #2018

The seventh step to self acceptance is to grieve the loss of unrealized dreams. When you are learning to accept yourself as you are you need to let go of the unrealistic standards that you held yourself up to. Stop expecting yourself to be perfect. Take the impossible dreams and standards and grieve them. Grieve the loss of those dreams so you can put them in the past and move forward. Once you put them in the past you can focus on being the best you that you can be. Grieving the loss of your unrealized dreams is an important step to self acceptance. . . . . . . #weighthelove #bodypositivity #loveyourself #bopo #bopowarrior #mentalhealth #eatingdisorder #survivor #selfacceptance #recovery #recoveryisworthit #positivity #mentalillness #forgiveyourself #selftalk #selfimprovement

This week is the first week of my new project (I’m not sure what I’m calling it yet) that includes a yoga class, a meditation, a mantra, self care tips, and so much more - all centered around a common theme. . This weeks theme is RELEASING OVERWHELM . And it’s the perfect mid-December theme, if you ask me! . Want to join us?

It’s funny how many products are on the market to get rid of stretch marks, don’t you think? We’ve been led to believe that any marks on our skin should be hidden or erased. Every one of us have all of these beautiful features that make us unique & make us who we are... Yet we’re still told that we should be striving to achieve the same beauty ideal & look the same. . It’s rare to see women photographed with stretch marks, acne, cellulite, dimples or rolls. So when I got these stretch marks, I remember crying about them & thinking, “great, another thing that isolates me from what I’m supposed to look like.” . I looked in the mirror & saw these deep, dark lines that had appeared because I had gained so much weight so quickly during my ED. I felt ashamed & ugly & told myself I would never let them see the light of day in public. I couldn’t think about how these lines were a part of me & how they made me unique & beautiful, all I could think about was that I’d never seen anyone else with them before who wasn’t part of an ad for a stretch mark cream to “get rid of imperfections, FAST.” . I took this photo when I went to the beach a few months later; the first time I’d been in a bikini in almost 10 years. I was sick of feeling ashamed of all of the changes my body had been through in the past few years & feeling like I didn’t deserve to enjoy the beach because of it. . My stretch marks have faded a lot since I first got them. I wish I took a photo of them when they were beautiful & pronounced & dark; I’m actually quite sad that you can’t really see them anymore! I looked at them when I was at the beach & thought, “these are actually super cute!” I traced them with my finger & thought of everything I’ve been through; the lowest of lows during my ED, how hard recovery has been & how brave I’ve been to come out of it strong & soft at the same time. . These squiggly little lines might be indicators of weight that I’ve gained, but they’re also marks of my growth. They don’t make me any less deserving of happiness & don’t make me better or worse than anyone else. They show where I’ve been, how far I’ve come & how brave I am. So I’m not hiding them anymore. 😍

Almost 4pm and I’m still in my pjs, what can ya do? ☺️😂 Tummy is mostly compliant today which is top notch 🎉 but I’m also obsessively aware of how much and what I’m eating today 🙄 today is a LOVEly reminder that I’m always in recovery from my ed (sarcasm is present in this sentence). So continuing to move forwards, going to sit down with some tea and if I’m lucky take a nap 😴 Feeling all very negative today so here are 5 things Im grateful for: 1. My best friend @jemontoast 2. My lovely lil puppy dog has been really cuddly the last few days, it’s been nice 3. I have the liberty of eating when I’m hungry, and drinking when I’m thirsty something not all people have 4. My partner didn’t wake me up this morning before he left,instead letting me sleep in. Thanks @thatnic.guy xx 5. I’m grateful for my dads patience while teaching me how to be an effective PA • • • #health #healthylifestyle #wellness #vegan #vegansofig #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessrecovery #recovery #recoveryisworthit #recoverywarrior #depression #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #feminist #feminism #feministasfuck #bodypositive #bodylove #bopo #bopowarrior #selfcare #selflove #gratitude #grateful #thankful

For my 200 post I wanted to show a really special picture. This picture means so many things to me. . . . First, this photo is scary to me. It was pointed out to me that I show more in my bathing suit that I do here but there is something about this that scares me to show to others. . . . Second, this photo is freedom to me. Freedom from caring what other people say or think. Freedom from my eating Disorder thoughts and accept my body the way it is. By posting this, I have crossed a huge obstacle by feeling brave enough and confident enough in myself to let others see it. . . . Third, this photo is service to others. If I can do this, so can you. I have come from the grips of self loathing hell. I hated my body so much I tried to destroy it. I want all of you to know that there is so much body positivity can do for you. It is possible to love and accept your body. 💞💞💞 #bodypositivity #bodypositive

here’s a positivity post for... wrinkles!! (i love hairless cats, so here! have a picture of an adorable kitten!) 👉 i love wrinkles and i think everyone should, too. not to be overtly cheesy, but they’re really an expression of a life well lived! frown lines, crow’s feet, “grandma bum”... in my opinion, all signs of victory in the game we call life. ♥️ I’ve heard my maternal grandmother saying things like “i don’t like looking at my body in the mirror because i’m old” and i keep telling her that her body has done amazing things. it has smiled, laughed, frowned, given birth, grown, gained weight, lost weight, and that’s beautiful. 💜 i don’t particularly care if someone ages “gracefully” or not - age and beauty don’t really have a distinct and strict correlation, and someone’s beauty is not measured by how long they can fit into society’s predetermined standards. so, yeah. enjoy your wrinkles! #wrinkles #crowsfeet #weightrestored #ano#anorexiarecovery #eat#eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #ana#anavery #eatingdisorder #anorexia #ana #anxiety #bpd #ocd #recovery #feminism #tra#transer #trans #nonbinary #lgbt #edwarrior #bodypositive #bopo #selflove #bopowarrior #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance

Let's talk about unattractive photos. First off this photo is an awful composition. My 2 year old son was scared of Santa and only agreed to get even kind of close if I went with him and only cause Santa had candy canes in his basket, so that's why the giant gap between us and Santa. Now onto the photo. When I left the house that day I felt cute. It was a hot day, my outfit was light enough to not overheat in. It had some color pops in there to compliment my hair and makeup. I just felt good, even though I was trying something a little different which was tying the colored shirt like I did. When I saw this photo my initial reaction was one of horror. My pants aren't fitting as tight as I wish, bunching in unsilghtly places. I look huge in my monotone black tank. I got a proud double chin showing and squinty eyes. I won't even tell you what it looks like from the back. It's a disaster all around. So I complain to my husband who took the photo. "Why didn't you tell me I looked so awful?!" He was legit flabergasted. He says he didn't see anything I was talking about. He saw me smiling. He saw me dragging my kid who hates everything through the Christmas spirit. He saw me walking around confidently. He saw me not shying away, or being afraid of what others thought. I looked at the photo again. Though it's not my best photo, it was the real me. I was all of those things. I wasn't afraid to try something new, to step out of my comfort zone. Even now I'm not really ashamed, or embarassed, more just annoyed at how bad this photo setup is, rather than how I look. How I look, these photos, they can't dictate how I felt about that day. The memories I made. What my son will remember (if anything) from that day. What I wear, how I look, should not dictate my level of happiness I experience. Only I can do that. #bod#bodyposi #selflove #allbodiesaregoodbodies #nobodyshame #fatactivism #honormycurves #bopo #bodyposi #bodylove #imperfect #fatpeople #bopowarrior #fatbabe #fatpositive #radicalbodylove #celebratemysize #nobodyshamecampaign #bodyloveforall #bodylove4all #Plussize #fatgirlscan #beautifulinsideandout #invisibledisability #mom #fighter #staystrong #disabled #showyou

The last week was one of THE BEST I’ve ever had. I took the job as Head Trainer with @burnbootcampfishers because I have a passion for empowering and inspiring women. I had a spark when I left Indy on Sunday. . By Monday, the fire had been IGNITED 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. The community, the support, the transformations, the lifestyle changes. I get the privilege of being a part of someone’s story. Of encouraging them and pushing them to reach their goals. I get to be part of transformations. I am so excited for this responsibility. And I’m counting down the days until we open our doors. . This SAC test was no joke. I did my 0.5 mile run last. My asthmatic lungs did NOT like the cold, rainy weather. On the last leg, I wanted to stop, but I kept thinking about every woman that will come into our gym, perhaps wanting to give up. I ran that last leg them. And I finished! 🙌🙌🙌. . I’ll be sharing more about Burn in the coming weeks. Indy friends, if you are looking for a community do women that will push you to reach your goals, sign up for our FREE 30 day trial!

So today was hard at times, where I was struggling to get out of the spiralling thoughts in my head that just pushed me deeper and deeper into a hole. . Amongst the cloud of depression, I also was bombarded by my ED and body dysmorphia, where they were criticising my weight, size, how much I eat, my acne, my teeth, my hair - literally ripping me to shreds. . I then sat down and tried to just feel. Not act upon anything, but just feel; and the first thought that came to mind was: ‘I’m meant to be an advocate for body positivity and self love, but all my progress has slipped away from me’. . STOP RIGHT THERE BOO✋ . Other than the fact I’m still recovering from an ED after 6 years of suffering with one, I’ve also grown up in a world where diet culture and fatphobia is heavily ingrained. SO, one bad day doesn’t mean all my progress is lost, or that I’m a phoney. It’s NORMAL to have these slip ups when not only are we having to unlearn everything diet culture has drummed into us, but we also have to fight off DAILY talks about diets and how we need to ‘fix’ ourselves. . So if you find yourself stood in front of the mirror not loving yourself, know that it’s okay. You’re not a failure. You’re a god/goddess and you’ll get through the fog to see this again and carry on on the self-love journey. Sometimes when it’s harder to love yourself, trying to appreciate your body for what it does for you can help get you back to a more peaceful relationship with your body when times are rocky💜

If you’re gonna out on a Saturday night as I did and stay out a little later than planned just freaking own it! If you’re spending time with people you love and you’re having fun milk it for all it’s worth and the next morning banish those pesky morning after anxieties.. you know what I mean.. just be grateful AF for the fun you had and memories you made. I used to wake up after nights out feeling anxious about the night antics now I own it! So what if you got a bit wild, the people that love you won’t judge you. I hardly ever get to see my mates so when I do I make it count. Theres nothing like a good disco boogie with your friends to get you pumped. Living a good life for me is all about balance so after a busy weekend with a few mulled wines thrown in for good pleasure I’ll be back on schedule with a good workout, massive hydration and some scrummy nutritious food. Enjoy your festive season guilt free it’s the only way to be #selfloveseason @vlique_uk #judgementdetox . . . . . #londonfitness #ukfitfam #anxietytips #body confidence #bodypositivity #bodylove #celebrateyourself #londonfitnessguide #londonpt #ptsessions #ptguide #fitnessapp #girlswholift #bopowarrior #fitnessmodel #fitnessinspiration #belovealways #followyourdreams #dreamschaser #dreamchaser #dreambig #successquotes #wanderlustquotes #vegangirl #veganlife #yogainspiration
