I took this picture 2 days ago, because I was SO excited to see, for the first time in my entire life, definition in my stomach. I have always had a little extra around my stomach & hips, & it was always the area I wished to improve. I finally did it with cleaning up my diet and yoga. I remember being teased from as early as I can remember about my thighs rubbing together (they still do 🤔) & having love handles (but those are gone!). I took the photo and thought, too bad I can’t post something like this on Instagram, too bad I’ll be called a slut, too bad I can’t be openly proud of the work & discipline I’ve put into bettering myself over the last three years without some kind of backlash... I even sometimes talk down to myself for taking these kinds of photos, but why?! I’m physically & mentally stronger & healthier than I have EVER been, so for once I’m going to say, MY BETTER CHOICES PAID OFF! 🌸💪🏼💕
I fell in love with yoga fast. It’s not something I have to push myself to do. Once you get past the beginner phase of learning and understanding it, you will MAKE TIME for it in your life. I promise. Yes the results are nice, but what is even nicer, is yoga helps me to cope with rough times, depression, anxiety, & especially stress & anger. Just ask @cag_apollo.
Anyway, if you read this far, thank you. Just need to stop living in fear. ✋🏼
Also, my only regret is not taking before photos! But maybe I can find something and post in stories.
