Don’t tell a fat girl to cover up because it makes you uncomfortable ask yourself why a fat woman confident with every inch of her body affects you so much.
No le digas a una mujer gorda que se cubra porque te hace sentir incómodo o incomoda pregúntate a ti mismo porque una mujer gorda que se siente segura de cada centímetro de su cuerpo te afecta tanto.
I hardly ever get time to practice my yoga anymore. So much time passes between sessions that I can forget how alive and free my mind and body feel afterwards. Postpartum is a crazy period. I really need to take more time out to rediscover myself, my strengths and my weaknesses.

Ok feeling those post holiday blues now I’m back at work! 😭 give me another couple of weeks by the pool please!🙏🏻🏝
It’s that time of year again! 🔥 As much as I LOVED having a break and amazing holiday, my mind and body are so ready to get back into dancing this week and train for the 2019 Canberra Multicultural Festival in February! Throwback to last year after the street parade 💃🏻 Samba and dancing is for EVERY BODY ❤️
Be a bit more 'dog'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wake up believing everyday is going to be a fantastic adventure.
Greet people you love like you haven't seen them in years.
Lay on your back, put your legs in the air and wiggle, just for fun!
When out walking, explore everything. You never know what you'll find.
Entice others into play at every possible moment. Don't take 'no' for an answer.
Show the upmost gratitude for every meal.
Be loyal to those who prove they are worthy of your trust.
Be stubborn when something is really important to you.

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfections. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”
Thank you Steve Maraboli, what a lovely quote ⭐️✨
Oh the power of undie position and hip placement ... 🤣🙌🏽 same phots but 5 seconds apart. I have a naturally wider waist which is why I like to keep lean as curvy hips and a tiny waist ( hourglass ) isn’t my shape. I love training because you can kinda create a new shape with muscles and illusions.. BUT for those wanting a quicker solution here’s some of my posing tips 🎥🤭❤️
I’ve seen a lot of posts like this where girls are almost accused of lying to their followers because they were high waisted leggings 🙄
Let’s get real, far too many of us struggle with loving, or even liking, our bodies, so if doing one small thing like wearing clothes you find more flattering on your shape makes you feel better about yourself then don’t let anyone stop you 🙅🏼♀️
I’m not lying by taking pictures with high waisted leggings on, I’m just wearing clothes that I think suit my body shape 🤷🏼♀️
You gotta do what you gotta do to feel good about yourself 🙌 #selfacceptance#bodyconfidence
Hopping on that #bodypositive train! A year is quickly approaching since I’ve had Natalia. I get around 5-6 messages daily from people asking me to join their bootcamps, try their exercise programs, or the new fad of “losing 30 lbs in 90 days” miracle pill when any true fitness or nutrition expert knows that rapid weight lost like that is NEVER kept off. Recently, I received a message from someone that asked me if I was ready to “lose the rest of my baby weight”... one of those “coaches” that are trying to make money off of insecure women. I told her how rude it is to ask someone that, and she blocked me. 🤷🏻♀️ To be honest, I thought I was going to be back to my 120 lb tight and toned @mermicorn28 self by now, but I’m not and that’s okay. I love the woman I’ve become, extra flab and all, so much more than the vain, image-obsessed person I used to be. And I respect the hustle of the ladies that are genuinely trying to help women meet their goals, I am, but my baby weight is none of your damn business. I go on daily walks, and I eat healthy for the most part but I’m not ready to give up my wine and chocolate at the end of a stressful day just yet and that’s OK. I have a needy child that doesn’t like to sleep and a husband that works a lot and I’m exhausted from juggling work and motherhood, so no, working out, even for 20 minutes isn’t on my agenda every day, either. It’s okay to not be the same person you were before motherhood. I may never have the body I used to, but I have a love for my family and myself that I didn’t have previously and that is of way more value and importance to me. #nofilter#momlife#momblogger#postpartum#postpartumbody#baby#mentalhealth#wifey#proud#confidence#bodyconfidence#food#foodie
Have not had a thigh gap since I was pre-pubescent teenager in high school and even then I would never say it was ‘goals’
Instead, one of my biggest goals for this year (and every year thereafter) is to focus on my inner and outer HEALTH rather than my physical WEIGHT only 💪
Thighs rubbing, bits jiggling, cellulite and butt fat all over the place - that’s reality for EVERYONE and we are all the more beautiful for it❤️

My boyfriend snapped this pic without me knowing. When I found it on my phone about 18274628 hateful things went through my head directed at my body. I don’t want to paint the Instagram picture that everything is perfect now and I never struggle with food/body image because that’s not true. I do.
This trip to a place I’ve been visiting since I was 9 was beautiful because it showed me how far I’ve come since my full on eating disorder days, but also showed me how much further I still have to go. There were lots of mirrors, lots of beautiful people to compare myself to, lots of tacos, lots of not exercising and lots of bathing suit time...basically tons of my triggers all in one place. Gotta love the irony of vacation.
On one hand I walked with my head held high past places where I used to purge and was grateful for the time that wasn’t spending crying, angry, and frustrated because my body didn’t look the way I wanted it to like I did when I was younger.
But on the other hand there were definitely moments where I felt just like that 15 year old girl brutally scrutinizing every inch of her body. Thankfully I have much healthier tools in my tool box to quiet the voices in my head and was still able to enjoy my time, connect with family, and relax in my body.
I really don’t know if the voices will ever completely stop, but I’m grateful that I can walk away confidently knowing deep down that I am enough and that shrinking myself won’t make me happier.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that this whole body confidence thing is messy and imperfect and I’m learning as I go, but I promise it gets easier and that it’s worth it. .
