I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since River’s Edge.
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I saw tool.
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I saw Puscifer.
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I was breathing the same air as Maynard.
So someone is going to end up unfollowing me after I post this.
I’ve seen something going around about fighting back against the “bikini body” standard; aka if you have a body, no matter what the size or shape, it is a bikini-ready body.
Please stop giving people an excuse to not be fit. Please stop giving people an excuse to embrace u healthy lifestyles.
Congrats that you feel comfortable enough in your own skin to wear a bikini, regardless of your size. Cool. While you’re parading around, I’ll be at the gym, sweating my ass off trying to better myself. Because you know what? I was given ONE body. I am fighting a war against myself, and nobody else, to be healthy. Do NOT knock people who are fit/trying to get fit/workout/motivate people because they are doing something for themselves, just like you do something for yourself while you put on your bikini.
I hate my body, but I also love my body. I love it enough to want to make it better. I’m not getting fit and losing weight to fit some male stereotype. I’m losing weight and getting fit because the sight of stretch marks, cellulite and stomach fat makes me sick. I want to feel good about myself when I look in the mirror and see abs, quads, biceps. So you can take your plus size bikini body and be proud, but don’t assume that since I work out and haven’t had the guts to buy a bikini yet that I am trying to conform to the media’s version of “the perfect woman”
