“The personal responsibility narrative of health has been blown out of the water by the totality of research we have....the idea that there’s a personal responsibility component to health is BULLSHIT”- @thenutritional_advocate 
Socially constructed narratives tell us that in order to be healthy we need to exert control, discipline, and will power. FALSE. On all counts. Health is a multidimensional concept compromised of numerous, complex factors. However this multidimensional conceptualization of health does not evoke fear in the masses and lead to product sales. Don’t buy what diet culture is selling. Even if it comes from a “trusted” authority such as a medical provider, personal trainer, or academic. They unfortunately can be misinformed and perpetuate these myths.

Engaging in dieting behaviors such as caloric restriction and overexercise will not serve you. “Going harder” at them as promoted by the personal responsibility narrative exacerbates the fundamental problem. Remember our amazing bodies are primed to seek food SO THAT WE SURVIVE. When deprived, the body slows down and the drive to eat increases. Willpower, control, and discipline HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BODY’S DRIVE TO KEEP US ALIVE. It is NOT that you aren’t “working hard enough” at weight loss. Our bodies work against weight loss. 
See much more on the bloggity blog!! /blog/2018/12/18/its-bullsht *pardon the swears...the quote seemed worth it!

Repost @duvet_days: A hysterectomy does not change who you are and the power you hold in the spaces that have gone through these transformations. Your body is equally, if not more resilient, powerful and beautiful for being able to withstand these changes. ⠀

Bijna is het jaar ten einde.. Wat laat je los en wat neem je mee naar het volgende jaar? 
Ik laat mijn angst los om mezelf te laten zien. Ik laat mijn belemmerende overtuigingen los.
En ik neem in eerste instantie mijn nieuw gevonden liefde voor mezelf mee, maar ook neem ik alle plezier, alle mooie ervaringen, alles wat ik geleerd heb en al mijn trouwe volgers mee het nieuwe jaar in. 
Ik ben benieuwd wat jullie loslaten of meenemen!
Laat je antwoord onder deze post achter, tag iemand van wie je denkt dat die hier ook over na mag denken en maak kans op de 12 Body Positive meditaties, helemaal gratis! Dus jij maakt kans, niet de persoon die je tagt (tenzij die zelf ook iemand tagt). Op 31 december maak ik een winnaar bekend.

The people you have around you are a choice. We all make bad choices from time to time but this one is important. You’re allowed to cut ties with people who don’t make you feel good. You should actively ensure those around you bring you up to be the best version of yourself. Remember you’re someone’s person too though, support those around you as much as they support you.

Who else grew up with the rules you’re not allowed to leave the table without finishing your plate? My mum was the leftover queen, turning last night’s casserole leftovers into tomorrow’s Shepherd’s pie. ⠀
.⠀
But for me... with my crazy travel schedule, lack of forward planning, and my tradie boyfriend working long hours, we can be wasteful when it comes to food, and end up throwing a lot out, or giving it to Rexy (no complaints from him).⠀
.⠀
So, I was really keen to get involved with @brisbanecitycouncil Love Food Hate Waste campaign.  The message is simple: Don't let good food go to waste! ⠀
.⠀
We’re undertaking the Six-week food waste challenge. The website has all the information including great resources to audit your fridge and cupboards and formulate shopping lists with tools to simply plan ahead, so that fresh produce creates great meals, which turns into awesome leftovers, and essentially less food waste to landfill. ⠀
.⠀
It’s the little things that we do that make a difference and help keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.
.⠀
You can sign-up to the Love Food Hate Waste e-newsletter for handy hints to help keep on track.
.
In our house it’s just about making small changes around shopping with intent, forward thinking and culinary creativity.... i.e. a few sessions of cooking with Stace.
.
I would love to hear any tips you might have about how you reduce food waste in your house?⠀

You don’t have to love yourself. You can just accept yourself where you are right now just as you are. You’re allowed to do that. Put down the endless pursuit of improvement and appreciate yourself for the unique person you are. Nobody else can do you the way you do 😊

NZ icecream&gelato❶
In New Zealand everyone is eating ice cream😋
Ice bar which I bought at a convenience store🍦
It's too sweet😂
NZアイス食べ比べ❶
nzは夏🌈
若い子からおじいちゃんまで、みーんなアイスを食べてます😋
ということで人気のアイス、どの街でも食べるよー💪
.
まずはコンビニで買った、クリスピーがついてたキャラメル系のアイス🍦
300円くらい。高級な値段ではなく、こっちでは安いやつです。
うーん甘い😂
アイスだけじゃないけど、1つ食べるのがせいいっぱいなもの、結構あります😂

I am definitely not #fitspo.
But. 
I do want to talk about body image.
As the new year approaches.
It is that time.
When we make unrealistic resolutions.
•
Every year.
I tell myself.
I will lose 30kgs.
This is it.
This is my year.
But...
Shock horror.
I end the year.
Exactly as I started.
•
So next year.
My resolution is not to ‘lose weight’.
Because, in all honesty.
I’m quite okay with my curves.
I have learnt to love them.
And accept them.
But what I am not okay with.
Is being unhealthy.
Feeling unhealthy.
And showing my daughter.
Unhealthy eating habits.
So. 
In 2019.
My resolution is to focus on my health.
Both body.
And mind.
•••
So when I was offered the opportunity to work with amazing Lou over at @boldactivewear, I jumped at the opportunity.
Not only is her gear affordable.
It is..
Colourful.
Comfortable.
And completely squatproof!
Oh.
And did I mention she caters for plus size?! #notsponsoredjustawesome #andhellacomfy

Si on attend la perfection, que tout va selon nos plans pour être heureux, nous risquons d’attendre longtemps...
Etre heureux ne signifie pas que tout est parfait. Cela signifie que vous avez décidé de regarder au-delà des imperfections. Aristote. 
Il m’a fallu quelques années pour surmonter ces imperfections et il faut davantage d’années encore pour apprendre à s’aimer pleinement, mais tu es ici sur la bonne voix 😉♥️
Belle journée Darling ✌

Also haven't got around to posting new outfit pics, they will come up again soon, I promise! I've been busy spreading some Christmas cheer and my out of Instagram life!

What a difference a year makes. .
For anyone who is starting out take lots of before pictures, if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t see a difference.
.
Struggle to lose weight at the moment, I seem to be on a horrible stall and it is driving me crazy. I’m so close to my 100lb loss but my body doesn’t seem to want me to get there.

I’m so close to my 100lb loss but my body doesn’t seem to want me to get there. . . #weightloss  #bariatricsurgery  #bariatriccommunity  #vsg  #vsgcommunity  #vsgsurgery  #vsgjourney  #sleevesurgery  #ukbariactricsurgery  #nottheeasyoption  #wls  #wlsnhs  #wlsuk  #vsgintsacrew  #vsgjourneyoninstagram  #verticalsleeve  #wlsinstacrew  #weightlosssurgery  #wlsjourney  #extremeweightloss  #wlscommunity  #bopo  #bodypositive  #progressnotperfection  #weightlosstransformation  #throwbackthursday

QUICK AND HEALTHY FOOD 🥦🥦🥦
🌈
Yesterday I was low on time and high on hunger after a gym session, so I chucked together a ridiculously speedy lunch with some @loveliberto edamame fettuccine gifted to me by @talikallstrom 😁 -
The whole thing went like this:
✔️Pasta in a jug with some boiling water
✔️Microwave for two minutes, then drain but keep in the jug
✔️Chuck in some chopped broccoli and @tescofood chicken style pieces
✔️Microwave for another 2 or 3 minutes
✔️Chuck in a bowl with some @tescofood reduced fat caramelised onion houmous (I used a quarter of a tub)
🌈
Ok, so it's a bit random! But also super quick and made of things I had lying around. Using my mental template for a good meal made it easy to put together: a protein, a carb, a fat and some veg. Done 💪

Macros are C:24g P:46g F:20g KCAL:486 for those who like that sort of thing 😘

There is an overwhelming amount of research that indicates an association between obesity and chronic disease risk.  Firstly, I’d like to mention that correlation does not imply causation. Furthermore, correlational research can only prove that some variable may or may not occur alongside the mechanism or whatever you’re investigating. This type of research doesn’t isolate the cause.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The majority of research does not control for other health contributing factors such as nutrient intake, physical activity level, dieting, marginalisation, income, genetics etc. Until we include these impossible influences in research, we cannot conclude that weight is in way causes chronic health issues.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is substantial evidence (that controlled for BMI, Physical activity level, income) that found that obese individuals live just as long if not, longer than people within the ‘normal’ BMI range. Similar research has been conducted and found that weight cycling due to dieting weakened cardiovascular health and increased risk of hypertension (check my research highlight for the studies).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Health is a combination of genetics, access, environment, stress, and behaviours and people’s prioritization of their health is nobody else’s business⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Katru reizi, atrodoties atvaļinājumā, tāda sajūta, ka elpoju pilnu krūti. Mani vispār neuztrauc ko padomās citi, varu kaut vai plika staigāt. Kā es gribētu saglabāt šo iekšējās brīvības sajūtu un atvest uz Rīgu, jo sanāk tā, ka es dzīvoju savos izdomātajos rāmjos - ko cilvēki padomās, ja nu tāda paskatā satikšu paziņu, vai ar tādu figūru var sauļoties bikini?! Da vienalga taču! Es dzīvoju savu dzīvi un tā man ir tikai viena, kā arī es sev esmu tikai viena! ☀️
Каждый раз в отпуске у меня такое впечатление, что дышу полной грудью. И мне вообще наплевать, что подумают другие, хоть голой ходи. Как же я хочу сохранить и привести с собой это чувство в Ригу, а то получается, я столько ярлыков на себя понавешивала - что люди подумают, а если я в таком виде кого-то знакомого встречу, а с такой фигурой вообще можно загорать в раздельном купальнике?! Да плевать! Я проживаю свою жизнь и она у меня одна, так же как и я у себя одна любимая!

I find Christmas time really hard emotionally most years, because there’s this expectation to be jolly ALL THE DAMN TIME.
•
This just isn’t possible for anyone, let alone those of us with mental illness. More often than not around this time of year, I’m not actually happy - the pressure to be happy, extra food anxiety, revision stress, etc etc. BUT I also@want to add that I don’t feel like that ALL the time.
•
When people think of depression, they picture someone crying in bed all day everyday. But the reality is that there are good days and bad days. Heck, it can change from hour to hour!
•
I had such a wonderful day yesterday, and I was truly happy. Does that mean I’m faking it? Does it mean I’m cured?
•
No. Depression isn’t a constant. Depending on how your medication works for you, how much sleep you’ve had, how much stress your under, how you felt waking up - these are only a few factors which can affect how you’re feeling. Depression isn’t a constant state of being, rather it’s a chronic mood disorder that flares up at different times.
•
Be kind to yourself. Your mood can change from hour to hour, and that’s okay. You’ll get through this 💜

Ah ah ah love this!!! Seen on @leslieschilling page. It’s so funny how everything can change depending on the perspective 😁🤩. The most important lesson out of this, to me, is that you should not cheat at all eh eh!!! Eat when you’re hungry, eat whatever pleases you at the time, stop when you are full/satiety and move on with your life until next time! No plan, no tracking, no counting, no better food, healthy food, bad food, no best time to eat this or that. Only an easy and trusting relationship with food and with your body. Stop the war. Make peace. Diet is being at war with yourself. Mindful eating is being at peace. I choose peace. I am too tired of war, and it never worked. Eating is the least interesting thing about you, proportionally it should not take that amount of time energy and work! Make peace. Reconnect with your body and hunger. Free yourself from society/family/diet industry rules and standard. Live by your own terms: free and at peace. A donut is a donut. There is no moral value. Eating it does not define your worth. Resisting to it does not define your worth. Food is food. Focus your mind, energy and intelligence on other things! Happy Tuesday guys! Take care 💚🧡💜💛💙❤️

Never thought I could do this and feel great! Always thought I was not built for this! Shaun t came along as was like ‘put in the work and get the results!’ Shit he was right weren’t he! If you want to prove yourself wrong and get your body to move like you never thought possible, just start. Start lower impact (I did) then keep challenging yourself, you’ll get there without realising! Join my group with @kerrysfitlife and we’ll help you get there. 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 btw! How’s that for results?! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

Pourquoi faites-vous du sport ?
-
Pour brûler le dessert mangé hier ?
Pour changer votre corps parce que vous le détestez ?
Parce que vous avez trop mangé ?
Parce que vous avez l’impression que vous devez le faire ?
Pour compenser d’autres manques dans votre vie ?
Pour vous punir d’une crise ?
.
Ou bien pour vous sentir bien ?
Parce ce que vous aimez ce moment à vous ?
Parce que vous aimez voir ce dont votre corps est capable ?
Parce que vous aimez vous surpasser ?
🌸
Si vous vous demandez pourquoi vous n’arrivez pas à maintenir une activité physique régulière et dans le temps ..
Posez-vous la question du pourquoi vous la faites ..
🌸
Vous surentraîner parce que vous vous détestez ne mènera à rien ..
Parce que le sport ne vous aidera pas à changer votre rapport avec votre corps ..
.
Faire de la course à pieds simplement parce que tout le monde  en fait n’est pas non plus une bonne idée ..
Trouvez quelque chose qui vous plait vraiment .. et tout sera plus facile ..
🌸
Et toi ?
Pourquoi t’entraînes tu ?

This is my body! 
It may not be 'beautiful' to some but my body is craving love and affection from the one who occupies it. After years of starvation, binging and purging and just hating the body I was so grateful to be given I am now starting give it what it deserves and so desperately needs. 
A size 12-14 is what I am, my fat bulges over my pants when I sit, stretch marks engrave my body, thighs that love each other they can't be apart, boobs that will feed and scars that stain my body to remind me the war I fought and will continue to fight will never win and I will not fall victim to the war inside my head again 
My body is beautiful and deserves love and affection I will not change it to try and fit beauty standards. This is my body and I am I will learn to love and accept my body for what it is.

The following accounts helped me and showed me how to love and accept myself. I am learning but I will get there. Check them out!!

CONTENT WARNING: Personal, Rant, Body Issues
~~~ I was always big, as in larger than what I "should" be in a small world. Then I  tried to shrink myself because a doctor said I might die by the age of 25 if I didn't (that time I valued my life more). I ate barely anything, exercised as if my life depended on it and, EUREKA! I shrank. Became smaller. Suddenly called beautiful by the people who knew of my existence since I was a baby. 
Was I happy with my "achievement"? I can't recall if I was.

I wanted "it" to be over. Now that I was small, I could perhaps have that piece of cake I hadn't had for a year. A little bit of butter would do me no harm. Just a bit of the sinfully tasty food... It went on and on and on... I turned big and big and bigger. 
So, terrified at losing my "beautiful" self, I began with the cycle again. "Restrictive diet", I called it because "stopping myself from eating what I wanted to have and counting calories is definitely not dieting!" And thus began my tomfoolery again... Fast forward to year 2017... I lost weight, a bit of my hair (on the head), and most of my sanity. I was passing out in washrooms and had no energy or patience for anyone or anything.

But, I was "beautiful" again. Praised for my strong "will power" and "conviction". Was I happy with my achievement? I f*ckin' fainted and lost my vigor! Whenever I saw food, my brain would automatically start counting calories like that annoying alarm clock you put on snooze and it continues to... well... snooze until you wake up and the shut it the hell up. I could only salivate at my favorite dishes. Take in their aroma and put them down. I was pathetic!

I destroyed my body's natural state and damaged my mental peace.

Well, hello to me now. I'm gaining weight again. Constantly feel hungry, have no energy, immune system is a wreck. I did this to my body. And, apparently, I ain't "appealing" anymore.

People prefer to see me in a particular shape--a shape that has cost me dearly.

I'm sick of the society that taught me the beauty standards; that encourages only a certain body and scorns upon the rest. I'm in pieces because I want validation from YOU & I hate myself for that.

Was I happy with my "achievement"? I can't recall if I was. I wanted "it" to be over. Now that I was small, I could perhaps have that piece of cake I hadn't had for a year. A little bit of butter would do me no harm. Just a bit of the sinfully tasty food... It went on and on and on... I turned big and big and bigger. So, terrified at losing my "beautiful" self, I began with the cycle again. "Restrictive diet", I called it because "stopping myself from eating what I wanted to have and counting calories is definitely not dieting!" And thus began my tomfoolery again... Fast forward to year 2017... I lost weight, a bit of my hair (on the head), and most of my sanity. I was passing out in washrooms and had no energy or patience for anyone or anything. But, I was "beautiful" again. Praised for my strong "will power" and "conviction". Was I happy with my achievement? I f*ckin' fainted and lost my vigor! Whenever I saw food, my brain would automatically start counting calories like that annoying alarm clock you put on snooze and it continues to... well... snooze until you wake up and the shut it the hell up. I could only salivate at my favorite dishes. Take in their aroma and put them down. I was pathetic! I destroyed my body's natural state and damaged my mental peace. Well, hello to me now. I'm gaining weight again. Constantly feel hungry, have no energy, immune system is a wreck. I did this to my body. And, apparently, I ain't "appealing" anymore. People prefer to see me in a particular shape--a shape that has cost me dearly. I'm sick of the society that taught me the beauty standards; that encourages only a certain body and scorns upon the rest. I'm in pieces because I want validation from YOU & I hate myself for that.

How cute is my 91 year old mother. We call her Omi which is what the grandchildren called her instead of the Dutch Oma. We have such a close bond together and she was the o e who taught me my sense of style and my dislike of “trackie pants”. To this day I have never owned a tracksuit haha. And it’s a very rare moment when you will find me in jeans 👖 - though I do like them on others.  Her mantra was to always look nice because you never know who would come to visit. I enjoy my time with her (I live a six hour drive away) and look forward to the next visit. #motheranddaughter #omi #familyiseverything #fashionguru #specialtime

A dress can make or break your special event - when I went to @ultimatebride_au it was refreshing to see that they had my size and different dress options which I was SO not used to. I walked out feeling a princess! 👸🏼✨👗 #adelaide #mafs #logies #plussizefashion #plussizestyle #aussie #bopo
