I refuse to change my body anymore. I want to listen to it, respect it, and allow my beautiful body to be where it WANTS to be.
This shape and size is where my body is comfortable at right now. When I’ve wanted to lean out, I’ve had to decrease my food intake and increase my workout durations and frequency. I don’t want to try and CHANGE this body anymore.
This has been my mindset for about 6 months now and I’ve gained more than 10 pounds. This is my body’s happy place right now and it is my responsibility and privilege to respect it.
Life is difficult and there are so many other things more important and time consuming than fitness and figuring out how much to eat. It’s too much for me. Thank goodness I’ve realized this now.
Thank you to @elle_bfitbody for articulating EXACTLY the way I’ve been feeling.
