Judge me how you will but unhappy and your negative thoughts about how my body looks are your problem not mine. After reading @mother_pukka ‘s post about body imagine I felt inspired to share me. I have suffered all my life from not being the perfect figured girl - I love food, I love sweet treats, I love just lazing around enjoying my family - all of those loves have an impact on my body physically, mentally they make me smile but physically my body is not toned, skinny etc. However it is strong. I work out once a week for an hour with a personal trainer. I walk miles each week pushing a double buggy lifting toddlers in and out of high chairs car seats etc, I also run 10km most weeks and back in March this year I ran my first Half marathon (Reading Half). So I’m not unfit. I have come to love myself in the last 8 months, I’ve hung up and walked away from desiring the perfect figure and being under 9.5 stone. Because I got there two years ago but I wasn’t happy I changed to become someone different it wasn’t me. This year I’ve just let myself be me, to love those around me and to enjoy life, because tomorrow might not come. No one will remember me for being a perfect 10 under 9.5 stone. They’ll remember my smile my happiness my kindness.
I took this photo back in Oct whilst in Greece to remind myself that I am beautiful, beautiful enough to wear a bikini, to be loved and to love myself.
I’m a mum I’ve birthed two children so my body is bloody amazing! If you don’t like it that’s your problem not mine.
