Body Acceptance

I'm no health expert and I don't have all the answers but I am well versed in the subject of body image.

And I do know that one of the most complicated relationships we will ever have is the one we have with our bodies.

From a personal perspective, I know what it's like to be slim, never having to worry about a diet or what I looked like in a bikini.

I also know what it's like to be overweight and disappointed, unmotivated and resentful of my body.

I've experienced rapid weight gain, and the kind that creeps up slowly.

I've been teeny tiny and battled with an unhealthy relationship with food and a self critical eye for my reflection.

I've been through negative experiences and I've successfully overcome them and I know that there is no "one right way" to eat, maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise and love the skin you're in.

We are all so vastly different - from our body shape and size to our inner workings - which is why there are many different ways to be healthy and to enjoy your body.

I've found that the best place to start is in your mind.

Stop overthinking it all. Don't complicate it. Don't pressure yourself to sign up the gym, go on a crash diet and quit bad habits all at once. Take it one day at a time. And simply begin.
