REAL TAlK 💥
Weight loss does not equal a better body image, or more happiness. Before you think going on a diet is the answer….👇🏻👇🏻
In recent studies, body appreciation & gratitude towards the body have been the central organizing variables within how to cultivate positive body image.
🤗Body appreciation has been defined as accepting, holding favorable opinions towards, and respecting the body, while also rejecting media, promoted appearance ideals as the only form of human beauty. (Avalon et al., 2005)
For me, I spent decades dieting and exercising to change my body and make her look a certain way. To be accepted. To be seen as worthy. These last two years I’ve done some deep soul digging to rebuild my identity around fitness to be coming from a place of excitement and joy. ✨✨

Instead of aesthetics being the main intention, the focus is more on how you want to FEEL, how you want to LIVE and optimizing your lifestyle to get there. Through this we are also cultivating a more positive body image through developing body appreciation.
To be clear-What we do together is not just a diet plan, or a cookie-cutter workout program.
