We all deserve a body we LOVE!
Many people are surprised to find that I struggled with body image, being the thin fitness lover that I am.
It's hard to know exactly when the struggle started, it was more of a progression. An idea adopted in my early teens that evolved into reality as I moved into my 20's.
Growing up as a woman in this world. I was constantly comparing my body against others and allowing myself to feel bad because my body didn't measure up.
I have never been overweight by any means, but even still, I wasn't completely happy with my body, and because of that I did not have a lot of confidence.
This is why I refuse to use any words about 'weight-loss' or 'fat' loss' for my Body Love program (even though that's what sells). That, and the fact that you don't have to have excess fat on your body to struggle with body image.
I know now, I was not alone in feeling this way.
Statistics show, approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and turn to dieting to achieve their ideal body shape. However, only about 5% of women naturally possess the body type often portrayed by the media.
