self-love, self-acceptance, and staying true to yourself

Let’s talk about body acceptance.⁠ ⁠ About anti-diet culture.⁠ ⁠ About working out to feel good instead of to “sweat out” whatever you had the day before.⁠ ⁠ I’m still on my journey.⁠ ⁠ Sometimes I get caught up thinking I need to restrict an uncomfortable amount, work harder than what’s recommended, and to do double of what’s “normal” because I have COVID weight to lose.⁠ ⁠ Then I remember, this is a thought placed into my head courtesy of the society we are a part of. One year ago, my whole damn life was turned upside down and yeah I gained 15 pounds.⁠ ⁠ If someone cares enough to notice & comment then that reflects more on who they are than who I am.⁠ ⁠ Stay true to yourself, fam. People are always going to try to bring you down - don’t let them.
