DON’T KILL MY VIBE ✌🏽
Did you think that “being skinny” would solve all of your life’s problems and you would have no insecurities?
I thought that it would.
I have been at all ends of the spectrum- overweight, competition lean (aka 15% body fat), and everything in between. And guess what?
In every phase of weight, there was something about my body that I wished I could change, or I thought could look “better”
I had a glorified image in my head of what it would be like to be “skinny”. I dreamt for years about what it would feel like- how different I would be. Surprisingly I was still the same person (shocker there). I was just the same person with a lower body fat percentage with some other part of my body to fixate on changing.
👆🏽This is me right now, and although I’m focusing on how my thighs used to be a lot smaller a few months ago, I’m still Savana.
I’m still the same person with a voicestrous laugh, a heart exploding with compassion for others, a goal to work hard to get rid of the 15 pounds I keep complaining about, but a mindset of being non-judgmental towards myself throughout the process.
