If there's anything I've learned over the course of these past few months, it's that whether I'm "bulking" (trying to gain weight, predominately in muscle mass) or "cutting" (trying to lose weight, predominately in fat mass), my body has always been absolutely BEAUTIFUL just the way it is.
This is a friendly reminder that you do NOT have to GAIN or LOSE weight in order to be more beautiful, more sexy, more attractive, or any other aesthetic-related adjective in the dictionary. You just have to do whatever makes YOU happy and makes you feel more yourself than anything else in the world, and that's literally ALL that matters. Nobody else's opinion matters. Nobody else's aesthetic preferences matters. We are ALL so incredibly different and unique and beautiful and complicated and perfect just the way we are.
To me, this lesson was learned through the process of physically changing my body composition and knowing that I have the COMPLETE CONTROL to be able change my appearance to look more bootylicious or look like a lean, mean, ripped machine. To others, it may simply come from taking a good look at yourself in the mirror in your favourite bikini and going "DAYUM GIRL, YOU FINE AS HELL." (That probably would have been a much easier process - haha!)
But, it truly is up to you - based on your lifestyle, your food choices, your activity level, your exercise preferences, and most importantly, your MINDSET. Each of these factors are all that's stopping you from reaching your goals, but let me tell you - there is NOTHING stopping you from loving yourself, just the way you are, right damn now.
Because, no matter your aesthetic preferences, no matter your current fitness & health goals, you are fucking perfect JUST THE WAY YOU ARE.
With love and wellness,
