Can You Be Body Positive And Still Want To Lose Weight?

Can You Be Body Positive And Still Want To Lose Weight?

I’ve noticed some confusion around wanting to be body positive and love your body, while still wanting to lose weight.  Even talk about wanting to nourish your body and eat in a way that supports your health can sometimes make those, who follow others in the body positive, anti-diet community, feel wrong.  I know initially I almost felt guilty for caring about my health and I’ve developed some thoughts on this that I want to share in this post today.

4 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

4 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

I see too many women hating their bodies and I get it because I used to hate mine too.  It stopped me from living my life, because I was uncomfortable in my skin.  I constantly thought about how I could make my body smaller, I berated it, called it terrible names, pinched it in disgust.  I cringe now thinking about how I’ve treated my body in the past.  Your body is the vehicle to your beautiful soul and deserves all the love and care you would give a child or beloved pet.

Why Self-Care Is Not Enough

Why Self-Care Is Not Enough

Self-care is a hot topic these days and rightfully so.  Women are waking up to the importance of taking time for themselves and not putting others needs in front of their own, so that they can serve from a full cup.  There are many wonderful ways to incorporate self-care into your life including the usual Epsom salt baths, reading, yoga, getting a pedicure or massage.  These things are all great but they won’t be enough if you’re still stuck in negative thought patterns that are leading to undesirable actions and habits.  This is Why Self-Care Is Not Enough.

How To Trust Your Body

So many women lose connection with their bodies from following external rules from diets, counting calories or macros and specific exercise programs.  They lose the ability to listen to their inner guidance system, which is the one thing we need to move towards our highest potential.  They get stuck up in their head and disconnected to their body, the one guru they should be listening to.  So in todays video I’m sharing how to trust your body.

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

I learned at a young age, like many of us do, that my body was my worth. Society and the media portray this message loud and clear. Even family members who have been taught the same thing can pass this message on to us. This can lead down a slippery slope of seeking external validation from others, and the problem is we will never feel good enough until we accept ourselves first. Read More

I Experienced My First Hater

I Experienced My First Hater

I experienced my first hater last month. Someone who completely disagreed with what I was saying, actually missed the point of my post and told me some interesting things, including that I was addicted to animal products (which isn’t a thing, just in case you were wondering) and processed foods, promoting poisons and actually feeding “the problem,” not helping it.

Why Empowered Vitality?

Why Empowered Vitality?

Why Empowered Vitality? I had someone ask me once what my business name means and then say he didn’t like it. This made me sit down and think about why I chose this name and even considered changing it, because it’s not immediately clear what I do.  I’ve decided to keep it and I’ll explain more about what it means to me and how I got to the point of naming a business in the first place!

Why The Comment, “You Look Skinny” Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

Why The Comment, You Look Skinny Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

It used to make me feel so good about myself when people told me I was thin or looked skinny. It boosted my self-esteem when people praised me on my physique and fitness level. During that time I based my worth on what my body looked like, the number on the scale and how “fit” I was. Read More
