“you changed my life with one sentence”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... is what a woman told me yesterday, honesty and gratitude shining in her eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
last week, she asked me for tips to slim down her thighs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i told her the physical steps to doing so, but also asked her:
“would having slimmer thighs actually make your life better? would all that effort and sacrifice really pay off?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the surprise and uncertainty on her face told me that she had never considered that.
she hadn’t considered that the “perfect” body we are conditioned to desire comes with consequences.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
she hadn’t considered that changing her body to fit the mold wouldn’t even yield a “net positive”.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
because we’re all made to believe that being...
thinner
prettier
more desirable
... would somehow automatically make life better.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i’ve tested that theory. i’ve done the “no days off”, tunnel vision thing.. and guess what? i was even less happy than before.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
because at the end of the day, we’re all just looking for permission to embrace what we already have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
we all want to be able to just enjoy this body we live in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so when i told her this one sentence:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “there’s nothing wrong with having thick thighs”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... it was like i turned her world upside down.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
she had never considered the option to just embrace her current body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and that realization changed her life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
that’s not to say that i’m anyone special or that it was only me who could deliver that message. i just happened to be the one who delivered that truth to her. right place, right time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it’s also not to say that you can’t have physique goals. but they shouldn’t stem from a lack of self-acceptance or a belief that changing your body will change your mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so please consider that you’re perfectly imperfect, just the way you are.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
consider that evolving your mindset and relationship with yourself might be what you need, not changing your body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
consider that you don’t need to change, but you can if your heart + mind are working together ❤️

I’ve gotten so many dms with regards to losing weight and questions about how many hours before or after workout should they be consuming food etc...

honestly,
forget about eating one hour after workout, 3 hours before workout or whatever that you read on google.

the truth is if you’re not a competitive bodybuilder, it doesn’t really matter that much... because it’s really about total caloric consumption per day or per week.
➖➖➖➖➖➖
output vs input
➖➖➖➖➖➖
then again, it’s not just all about eating lesser...or not eating at all. do it the right way, the healthy way.
if you truly want to lose weight, eat at a 10-15% deficit and probably have a cheat meal once a week? depends on your plan and of course training hard, resting well is important too.

have some patience because it takes time.
just don’t give up halfway❤️

Today’s affirmation: it’s okay to say “no” when you need to. •
great advice taken from one of our forum responses!

This is a real message. i didn't know why i was growing away from some people.. i didn't know why the conversations we had didn't interest me anymore. i didn't know why i no longer cared to please those & help those who didn't help me..i started feeling bad (i'm such a lame) but this is gods plan. thank you 🙌🏽🙌🏽.
