If this isn’t perseverance and determination then I don’t know what is
how to lose 3 inches off your waist— super quick, easy, and healthy
Yep, I went from a 31” waist to a 28” waist overnight. Literally. Overnight. All I did was go to bed.
We are always comparing our worst to the best of others, and we don’t take the time to appreciate our bodies in less than our perception of ideal states. I love when people post photos comparing their morning tummy to their bloated after dinner tummy because this encourages not being ashamed of our tummies in their constant flux & flow. It’s easy to look at ourselves after a big meal and think we are “fat”, that food has turned us into a whale and we become scared to eat more food. Fuck that. Appreciate the ability of your intestines and stomach to expand as you fill it with nourishment, as it hugs your food and absorbs its nutrients. Never go to bed hungry. Eat past 7. Eat at 2am. Eat whenever you are hungry, and stop when you are satisfied. Trust the intuitive nature of your body and it will treat you like the goddess you are. light & love xx
I like this. Because people gonna really think she lost something quick too and all she did was let her body do what it needs to do.
I’m here for this.
If I take two women of the same height and one is naturally meant to be BMI 24 and the other is naturally BMI 21, then this is what happens when they both restrict calories:
-The woman at BMI 24 diets down to BMI 20. Technically she is still in the healthy weight range and she receives compliments on her dieting efforts.
-The woman at BMI 21 diets down to BMI 17. People are very worried.
Which one has an active restrictive eating disorder? They both do.
Both women have the same physiological damage and both need intervention to recover and yet only one will likely be identified as having any issue.

I bet you can’t guess why!
