  • A year and a three months separate these photos. And though I’m sure people will look at these and automatically go, “I like that one better!”, there’s a lot more to them than simply aesthetics.
.
On the left, June 2017. I was in the thick of teaching at SoulCycle. I worked my ASS off to get to that point. Two auditions then two rounds of 10 week training, and then finally graduating to teach 6 to 7 days a week, one to three times a day, to try and make a name for myself in the cut throat world of NYC fitness instruction.
.
I admire that version of myself so much. That girl learned to be tough. She learned to push through so many challenges. And she pushed herself outside of her comfort zone every damn day. The job is immensely rewarding, but until you do it, no one understands how physically and mentally challenging it is. I was so exhausted. I ate a ton. I napped. But my body couldn’t keep up with the demands.
.
On the right, this is me right now. Five minutes ago. No longer teaching at Soul, I left five months ago, and I’m working for myself instead. My body has clearly changed. And I gotta tell ya, I’m THRILLED because for me it’s a representation of the fact that I made the right decision I made for myself. The abs have softened, the thigh gap is gone, and I feel confident on the inside because I’m so sure of the choice I made to leave, despite putting 2 1/2 years of my life into it.
.
Regardless of the outward changes, the solid foundation of a girl who isn’t going to give up is still there. The stage I went through on the left was beyond crucial in me becoming the woman I am at this very moment, but alas, I’m really glad that that chapter has ended and the next one has begun.
.
My jeans from a year ago may no longer fit. Perhaps I’m not quite as “fit” as I was before. But damn, I FEEL GOOD!

  • I’m sure by now you have read or at least heard of the comments made by Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer denouncing plus-sized and transgender models for his ‘42 minute fantasy.’ 😒 As someone who has avidly anticipated and watched the fashion show for the past decade, I kept my TV off last night. Before I was the mother of a baby girl, his words would have annoyed me, and offended me. But now, they enrage me. As a young woman who restricted her eating to sometimes less than 600 calories a day, worked out for hours on end, drank teas and took pills to curb my hunger just so I could be ‘skinny’ yet suffered from anxiety and depression because I was malnourished, I look at my daughter now. So perfect. Just the way she is. It kills me to think that someday she would mistreat herself the way I did all to fit into some middle-aged mans idea of a ‘fantasy.’ As if her worth is that small.

I took this photo on a lazy Saturday morning filled with hot coffee, pancakes and cuddles. I’ll take this fantasy over theirs any day.

  • My message for you today is to make peace with a little extra cushion.
-
It took me a while to come to terms with the fact that I’ll probably never have abs again.
I’m not the same body as I was a few years ago. But I’m also not the same person.
I’ve grown both mentally and physically and I can’t expect my body to look the same way.
-
I might be holding a little extra cushion, but I feel better today than I did back then.
-
My marriage is better
My career is better
My friendships are better
My relationship with food is better
My mental health is better
-
Life is so much more than visible abs, the number on a scale or the size of your clothes.
-
I’ve come to the realisation that I’d rather sacrifice visible abs and have some extra cushion.
Because that extra cushion means indulgent date nights with my husband.
-
It means choosing exactly what I want off the menu with no anxiety.
-
It means enjoying ice cream and chocolate, every day, if I want to.
-
It means spending quality time with my friends and family without the stress of weighing every morsel of food or drink.
-
You are under no obligation to be the same person you were a year, month or even 15 minutes ago.
-
You have the right to grow.
No apologies!

  • Just because you weigh more doesn’t mean you are worth less ❤️
-
Weight gain is seen as such a negative thing. It’s something that people try to avoid at all costs and has this stigma of failure surrounding it. 
But what if weighing more meant you’d actually be happier? What if finding that balanced weight meant that you could live your life more than ever? What if you could feel confident without being that “goal weight” you’ve always imagined?  What if you finally stopped dieting and actually started living? 🤷🏽‍♀️
-
In no way am I saying to throw your health out the window and fill your body with crap in order to be happy, but I simply challenge you to re-think where your happiness is coming from. What are you sacrificing in order to weigh less, and is that truly making you feel fulfilled? .
-
Sometimes gaining weight is simply a side effect of living your best life, and that is something I will never be ashamed of (and you shouldn’t be either) ❤️
