Don’t waste time hating your body

🦊 How you look does not define you 🦊

🦄 People will love you for being you, not how you look so it’s best to look the way that YOU want and to do what makes YOU happy! 🦄

First photo I may look “too big” to some people but I love this shot by @jody_wright1 because I feel strong and powerful 💪🏽

Second photo was my first ever show day and the smile says it all! Don’t be fooled just because you make it to show day it doesn’t mean you will think your body is perfect, in fact you will probably scrutinise it more than you ever have done in your life! But this is the happiest I have ever been with my body and shows the dedication I put in to achieving my dream 🤩 To get to this I was eating in a calorie deficit and training twice a day!

Third photo is where most people would class me as being “balanced”. I went to the gym 3-4 times a week and didn’t weigh my food, just stuck to healthier options but still enjoyed eating out too.

4th photo was the only time I have ever been unhappy with my body. Looking back now I didn’t even look bad and I wish I could go back and tell myself that now so I would have enjoyed my holidays more rather than worry about how I looked! This is the period of time I had my most unhealthy relationship with food and I never want to go back to that!

Photo 5 is before I knew what a bloody macro or gym workout was! Sometimes I think it would be easier to go back to that haha but I wouldn’t change my current lifestyle for anything in the whole world!

Then the last photos are me the day before show compared to 6 weeks post show! It can be a mind field for girls post show putting weight back on when we have just spent the last few months working our bums off to lose every bit of body fat possible but we need to learn to love our bodies in every part of the journey! Improvements can be made in off season and you can still look just as good with curves as when you are lean! If we let our happiness be ruled by how we look we will miss out on so much of life! Life is so short so make the most of it and just do your best!

Sorry for the long post but my mind needed some reflection time and Insta is where I like to spill my brains 🙂
