Stretch marks. This is terrifying to share with the world 🌎 but it shouldn't be! I wouldn't even want to label these imperfections but rather beauty marks. All my scars, marks, folds, cellulite, body hair and dimples are nothing I should be ashamed of! Everyday day i see a change in #bodypositivity , as more people show their acceptance of their bodies the more empowered I felt towards mine Thank you to all the beautiful bodies out there, men and women, who have inspirated me to love myself everyday 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛
Yes, we’re open. DM me to come see the space and chat about a membership!
I remember when I used to think that my sadness and my anger was to blame to those around me. 👉🏼I became irritated and frustrated very easily. At a certain point in my life I knew I couldn’t keep blaming others. It was all within myself. In my way of thinking. I shifted my perspective slowly and realized: Feeling frustrated? My fault Feeling irritated? My fault. Feeling anger? Also my fault. 👉🏼I am going to be honest with you, it was tough. I realized I was to blame for everything, instead of those around me. I had to take responsibility for my feelings! I am going to share three tips with you that I used when I started to shift my perspective: 💛1 - As I mentioned earlier, I took responsibility. Responsibility for my way of thinking, feeling, speaking and behaving. By my way of thinking I create thoughts and feelings. They come from my mind. My actions come from my behavior. I have control over it and so I am going to do something about it. 💛2 - I stopped blaming. Blaming my colleagues, friends or family. Blaming does not help you get anywhere. From an honest perspective, I took a look at my situation and asked: what is my role in this? How can I improve myself in this situation? 💛3 - Stop complaining and refuse to take everything personally. I decided that I was not a victim anymore. Instead, I asked myself questions such as: What can I learn from this? ✨Besides that, I refused to take everything personally. A disagreement does not have to be personal. Ask yourself: Is this really about me or about the situation right now? Stop assuming and start asking. Do you still struggle with blaming those around you? Send me a DM

This @dickies long sleeve workshirt fit me so well, I was very surprised. Dark blue and not tight in the shoulders at all. Finding something that fits my body from neck to waist is rare for a big boy. Also, these socckkkksss. 😂 👌👌👌 . . . #dickies #workwear #bigandtall #bigandbeautiful #bigmenfashion #celebratemysize #bodyacceptance #bodypositive
PSA: Not all exercise has to be a formal structured workout. Movement should be fun! Dance, swing, jump, play - anything that gets you moving counts as exercise and will give you the same health benefits 💃🏼 Move your body because you want to, not because you feel like you should! The best “workout” is the one you want to do ✨ (Also this was obviously taken way back when we were legally allowed to step out of our front doors )

r a w did you know that 1:14 women* have hirsutism? a medically recognized condition of excess "male pattern" body hair. did you know that even more than that have what they feel to be "excessive" body hair? for a lot of women*, the removal of body hair is something that causes huge emotional strife -- having hair is "unsightly"/"abnormal"/"unfeminine" so they remove it .... which is "giving in" to societal pressure .... but it makes them feel more pretty/normal/feminine. what a fucking headache! you! are! normal! how do I know? because i am one of those women*. i went to my family physician *begging* her to find something wrong with me. i demanded to have my androgens tested, multiple times, my adrenal glands, my progesterone....everything, convinced she must find something -anything- to explain why i wasn't covered in the fine baby hairs or peach fuzz i had been told was normal instead of this dark, prominent, "ugly" hair i had. and there was nothing. nothing wrong, out of whack, working "wrong". nothing. I am normal. I have dark body hair. I have hair on my chin, belly, legs, and underarms that is darker and thicker than i'd like. but i am at peace with it. my body loves itself so much is wants to cover itself in a dense warm insulated hug. just like over 7% of the rest of the women* in the world. and that is ok. for reference, i score 9 on the "Ferriman-Gallwey scale for hirsutism" -- which puts into perspective how skewed our perception of ~female~ body hair is, seeing as i felt that i was weird and gross and abnormal when in reality i am *just* hairier than a bunch of old white dudes from the 60s considered "normal". you! are! normal! *fully recognising that not all feminine people are women, that not all women are feminine, that non-binary and gender non conforming humans can have "male pattern" body hair as well. I do not mean to present this as a binary issue.
Y al fin puedo ver quien soy ✨💗 pasé muchos días, meses, incluso años deprimida, todo tiene solución y a pesar de que no fue lo más sencillo, lo logré y después de eso cambié, aprendí a quererme con todo y mis múltiples “defectos” (estrias , piel colgada , manchas , cicatrices ) todo eso lo estoy aprendiendo a amar 🙏🏽💗 . . . #lovemyself #amorpropio #love #loveyourself #bodypositive #bodytransformation #bodyacceptance #ootd #wiw #whatiwore #fashionista #fashionblogger #outfitinspo #outfitinspiration #todayslook #beautiful #nature #zara #zarawoman #photooftheday #likeforlikes #fernandaamedina

May as well put all this extra time to good use 💁🏻♀️ I’ve thought about it for a while now, and still haven’t been able to come up with a good enough reason to comment on someone’s body. I had no problem with a list of reasons not to though! I’ll share some, let me know if I missed any good ones. In no particular order: • Peoples bodies are none of our business. Fairly obvious but there’s still this expectation that people owe us their body, their health, their reasons and explanations. Not so!! 🙌🏻 • It perpetuates weight stigma, fatphobia, diet culture, and an emphasis on appearance. Contrary to what society has us believe, thinner/smaller does not equal better. • Bodies change for so many different reasons - medication side effects, stress, eating disorders, any number of medical conditions, illness or disease, lack of resources, trauma, depression/anxiety, drug use, - just to name a few. Do we really want to risk commenting on any of those when we choose to highlight someone’s body? • Weight is not an indicator of health. Before you interject with a “but..” to this one, think about why you’re commenting. Is it because you're legitimately worried that people’s lives are at risk, or is it because you're judging them for deviating from a societal norm? • There are so many other, more interesting, things to focus on and talk about! 🍍 #eatingdisorderawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #edrecovery #anorexiafighter #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #bingeeatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #HAES #selfacceptance #recovery #endthestigma #antidiet #ditchthediet #bodytrust #bodyacceptance #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies #dietsdontwork #healthateverysize #bodyneutrality #bodypositivity #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyliberation

Yesterday my client said to me: “I can’t believe I was bamboozled by diets for so long” and after we laughed about her usage of the word “bamboozled” 😂 we simmered down and talked about it. ⠀ ⠀ The diet/wellness industry is a $72 billion industry that prays on your insecurities. ⠀ ⠀ They tell you that if you do XYZ you will have self confidence and love your body. ⠀ ⠀ But in reality what they do is tell you to be super restrictive causing your body to think you’re in a famine AND in turn it increases your food thoughts to the point where you feel obsessed. ⠀ ⠀ And when your body cannot take it any more, you lose “willpower”. Then the diet people turn around and tell you: welp. We told you what to do. You didn’t. It’s your fault. ⠀ ⠀ When in reality; your body did what it needed to do to keep you alive. ⠀ ⠀ But you don’t see that. Because all you see is the before and after pics of “random” success stories. But do they follow these success stories for a few months? Because if they did; you’d notice that almost everyone that lost the weight. Gained it back and some. ⠀ And you fall back into the trap of wanting to shrink yourself all while your body just wants to LIVE comfortably at its weight set point. ⠀ ⠀ Chula, I won’t sell you a before or after picture. What I will do is coach you to learn how NOT be bamboozled by diet culture so that YOU can find your health. You can find your weight set point. And you can enjoy life again and respect your body for all it does for you. Because there’s more to life than shrinking yourself. ⠀ ⠀ And I won’t sit here and say that you won’t ever have diet thoughts again. But I will tell you that you will have the tools that will help you swat away the thoughts; because you know better. ⠀ ⠀ Check out the link in my bio. Apply to my group program and join a group of Chulas who are also learning to nourish and respect their bodies. ✨link in bio✨
Today’s distaste is tomorrow’s desire - and vice versa! Beauty and body trends lead us to believe that we need to achieve something in order to fit a standard of beauty. And it’s not a new phenomenon: from hairline plucking in medieval England (less was more when it came to hair, at this time ) to unibrows in Ancient Greece and using lead to make skin as white as possible in the 18th century, women have followed trends since as far back as we can date... Some more dangerous than others, with the Brazilian bum lift surgery posing today’s biggest threat in this sphere. But what do we do it all for?! Really, what? Does it bring any good to our lives? Does it make us happier? Does it make people like us more?! Nope. Yet do we spend time, money and energy on it? Yep. We need to step off the hamster wheel. Find self-acceptance - I know, easier said than done, but bear with me - and embrace our own different bodies and looks. Uniqueness makes the world so so so beautiful - I wish we could see that more! So beautiful. Diversity is everything. Why do we want to be a world of clones when we can be ourselves?
Let’s talk about body image, especially in relation to chronic illness and disability! Accepting and loving our body, whether praising it or simply being neutral about it, is challenging. We live in a society where altered bodies and images make us believe that we have to look a certain way, but we don’t. We can look the way that we look. You don’t have to change anything about yourself! This can be even more difficult when it comes to chronic illness and disability. A lot of the times, chronically ill and disabled folks aren’t properly represented. For example, in the body positivity/acceptance movement when I hear things like “it doesn’t matter what my body looks like as long as it’s healthy” or “I love my body because it allows me to move in certain ways,” I don’t feel seen. I don’t feel represented. A lack of mobility aids also adds to this which is something that I’m also working on showcasing more (especially once I finally get my wheelchair ). These are some body positive/acceptance mottos that I tell myself: I love my body because it allows me to live. I accept my body no matter how much it can or can’t do. I love my body for how much it tries, no matter the consequences. (This one is especially for those with overactive immune systems/mast cells. ) I accept all parts of myself. Which one of these do you relate to the most? Do you have another body acceptance motto that you like to tell yourself?

HOW TO HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO! Life is all about balance. It took me a very long time to figure that out, I spent most of mine trying to ‘cut out this’ or ‘avoid that’, geez the list was endless! Honestly, I don’t know about you but I was F***ing fed up with it!!! After dedicating a fairly decent chunk of my day to day trying to heal that mind frame I slowly but surely started to come to the realisation that my ‘all or nothing’ mentality was breaking me. An easier method for me to adopt that didn't leave me obsessing about what I was missing out on was, 'what health-conscious choices can I ADD to my plate as opposed to focussing all my time and attention on what I SHOULD be taking OUT?' In doing this, naturally, there is less room for those unfavorable choices that leave my body feeling sluggish, bloated, tired & groggy. I eat as MUCH natural, whole foods as I can majority of the time AND THEN if I want to eat a piece of cake...... I f***ing eat it, then I move on! I don’t hate myself after, or spend an hour extra in the gym or seriously restrict what I’m eating the next day! Another thing that helps me is remembering certain words that DON'T belong on my plate... CHEAT, GUILT, BAD, SINFUL, CLEAN, NAUGHTY, JUNK, TREAT. Eliminating 'good' & 'bad' foods from our vocabulary allows us to relearn how to enjoy food with FULL permission : ) . It isn’t easy every time, but, that my friends is what I like to call balance. How do you manage to find balance with your food day to day? I’d love to hear about it?
I’ve put on weight during lockdown. I don’t know how much, I don’t weigh myself. But my body is softer and my clothes are tighter. I know that many of you are in the same boat. And I want to let you know that it’s ok! I know it goes against everything we’re taught is ‘good’, but it’s ok to put on weight anytime - especially during this really unprecedented and uncertain period of our lives. None of us know how to handle a pandemic and being stripped of our routines and freedom - there is no ‘right’ way, we’re all kind of stabbing in the dark, right? We’re anxious, confused, uncertain and scared. And many people use eating as a coping mechanism, including me. Add on top of this the fact that we might be eating more simply because of our proximity to the kitchen, perhaps not being able to keep up our usual exercise routines (my pre-lockdown routine was an exercise class 3-4x per week which has gone ) and work stress. All of this leads to weight gain for many. It’s not something to beat ourselves up for or use as an excuse for self-loathing - so you’ve put on weight? It’s not the end of the world! It’s really, really not. I’m still me, you’re still you, we still have the same personalities, we’re still the same people. We might lose weight once we return to our usual routines - we also might not! We have to make peace with either. Set on the right from my friend’s small business @boujo_hake ❤️
Dream body or dream life, you get to choose. Its safe to say I wouldn’t have the life I have today if I didn’t recover. Here’s the reality, those ‘dream’ bodies you see and fantasize about, are unrealistic for like 97% of the population. 6 pack abs? Yeah, they require following an extreme set of rules that cut out any fun foods, they require countless hours in the gym, they become your hobby and then it becomes your life. I chose my dream body time and time again, and it never delivered. I was never satisfied, it was never enough. So I chose my dream life. My favorite guy by my side. Our 2 pups (lucas and otter ), our cozy loft. Pursuing my dreams like YTT and being a business owner. I build community around my values and not my dietary habits. I prioritize rest and move because it feels good. And I do the work I never knew I needed in my life. I will keep dreaming an amazing life and I’m so ready for it and excited, because I have the mental space for it now. I know the life beyond calorie counting, whole30s, workout tracking, and body hate. So I ask you again, dream body or dream life? You get to choose.
