If you’re a millennial who is into food, you have probably heard of Spoon University. What’s super exciting, is that they released an email ad that is totally celebrating women of all shapes and sizes.
Vegan foodie, Allie Fenwick, wrote the article, and we’re obsessed. First of all, shout out to you Allie. Not just for bringing attention to the kinds of bodies that we should be consuming on IG, but also for celebrating yourself. Get. It. Girl.
We need to embrace those moments where we are just totally feeling ourselves. It’s so easy to look at yourself (whether physically or figuratively) and try and convince yourself that you don’t really love the way you look and/or act. I find myself having moments where I do love myself – but then I convince myself that I shouldn’t love what I’m seeing. Even if it can’t be all the time, embrace, or at least appreciate the self-love that you have at any moment. I hope that eventually we will learn to love ourselves all the time.
We are 100% here for it. But also, you totally picked three of our fave ladies! Allie’s choices were the fabulous:
DE-HYPNOTIZE YOURSELF. . Call out that BS that’s been weighing you down. . Whether it’s a belief about what kind of career you need to have, what type of person you need to date, what kind of bank account you have to have or what kind of body is best…CALL IT OUT. . There is so much talk about learning new beliefs for yourself, but the first key is to unlearn what you’ve been taught for so many years. . Bring AWARENESS to the belief in your life that rings untrue and needs to be shed so that you can do the work to de-hypnotize yourself from it. .

Last week I asked you all to tell me how body positivity has changed your life, and your answers filled my heart up. I wanted to tell you what body positivity has done for me, and I’ll try my best to find the words. For a long time I truly believed I was the only recovered anorexic turned chubby girl in the world. The one who nearly died for thin and now couldn’t even stick to a diet. It seemed as if all life would ever be was cycles of starvation and disgust with myself when I couldn’t keep it up. For a long time I truly believed I wasn’t worth saving, I wasn’t worth a thing. Body positivity is the only thing that ever allowed me to let that girl go. That sad, hollow girl who still followed me around, reminding me of everything I wasn’t. She was never who I was supposed to be. I know now that it wasn’t her fault, I know now that through her hunger I slowly became who I am today. I know now that I was always worth saving. I know now that we all are. And I promise, I will fight for this until my last breath. I will fight for her, for me, for us. Thank you for fighting with me. ????????????????????
