Let's be real for a minute..
️no dieting or any kind of food manipulation pre photoshoot.
️no fancy hair and makeup - I did all dis maselllfffff (I'm actually surprised at my skills because I suck at being a girl).
️as much as I wanted to, I didn't cover myself up. This is the same bikini I wore for my previous shoot when I was 12kg lighter (thank god bikini's are stretchy).
This is me. Bitch face & all. Not comp ready. Not shredded. Normal old me. Eating all the food. Enjoying life. Lifting heavy AF weights (that's the shit I live for 🤤) & learning to accept that all that superficial BS is so irrelevant in life.
The more people I speak to, the more I realize how fucked body image is in today's society. Nearly everyone I know is on a diet, has tried a million fad diets (that either don't work, or work temporarily) or THINK they need to go on a diet. There's a time and place for dieting and I hate how there is such pressure on society to look a "certain way". Even if you reach that goal, will you even be happy? Probs not to be honest with you. Love yourself from the inside out - that's when the real magic happens. Know who you are and own it. Love yourself. Love every minute of your life and set goals that make you want to live that shit up. Remember, your body is a machine that needs fuel in order for you to achieve these said goals. Nourish it and take care of it in every aspect. Your mind, your body and your soul. You owe it to yourself. 🏼 - 3 hours ago
