P Often we judge people wrongly. Perhaps you would think a big strong man like Josh was happy with his large size. This is what he says: “Some of y’all see the result of my commitment to my health but many didn’t see the challenges behind the scenes. 👎🏽Insecurities about my body 🤷🏽♂️
👎🏽Embarrassed because of clothes not fitting 👕 👎🏽Loss of breath after tying my shoes 👟
👎🏽Couldn’t buckle my seatbelt on a plane ✈️ 👎🏽Hiding behind a smile when called FAT 😢
Since taking on my health last year...I’ve had a renewed sense of ALIVENESS!!! I’m so passionate because this journey has completely CHANGED MY LIFE AROUND!
My journey has NOTHING to do with weight loss but everything to do with LIFE GAIN. I’m so glad I stopped sleeping on my health and I am really excited to keep making an impact in the world by bringing others with me." Do you know "a Josh"? I would be happy to be a guide to better health with him or her. #gettinghealthy#gettingconfident#kauffmanhealthcoaching
I never thought that Naked Yoga could have been “my thing”.
I always been too self conscious and felt quite uncomfortable naked even with my husband.
I’ve watched the documentary on @wtvchannel that Doria made with @cherryhealey about body image and it gave me the courage to book my very first Naked Yoga private class. I have to say I was blown away! After my session I felt empowered and much more confident about my body. I know it will be a long journey but I’m happy I finally discovered naked yoga and I’m glad to work with such an inspiring woman. Doria is brave and caring and it’s a pleasure to learn from her.
Feedback from one of my clients!! 💜💜💜
There's one year inbetween these two pictures!
One year ago I could barely hold my body weight for a split second. Now I can go upside down.🤸♀️
Even if it took me weeks, even month, of practise, longer than anyone else, I am proud of what I can achieve now. Because I came from so far!💃
I still need to work on so many moves...
My pain tolerance went from 0 to 1... out of 100 🤣 (I know now I don't want natural birth when the day comes).
Thanks to pole, my instructors and all the girls I practise with, I am stronger, more confident with myself, happier... and I'm always waiting for the next class (and next bruises... or pole kisses) 😍💪 #poledancing#poledance#polefitness#poledancer#pdbutterfly#pdsit#gettingstronger#gettingconfident#pdlove#pcos#roarpolefitness
Thought I'd share a body pick today! This is a front and side view of what my body looks like now in 4 weeks time I'll update you and see if there is any change! Hopefully there will be as my stomach and chest area get smaller over the next few weeks as I dip bellow 12 stone! Hope you lot are enjoying my posts. I don't think I would have posted one of these before today anyway! Just need to feel more confident about my self and my body!
I’m feeling brave today! Not only have I dressed Frasier in a @bonniepopmakes romper before feeding him 🙄 rookie error every time. 🤦🏼♀️ But I’ve also given him waffles!! To some this might not be a big deal. I don’t really follow a baby led weaning diet for the boy. But I’ve tried to in our own little way. I feel like there’s pressure on parents all the time to feed their kids the right things or spoon fed vs baby led & of course breast vs bottle. So I’ve decided to just do our thing. Frasier is 9 and a bit months old. He loves his food. And will try anything. I’ve been a lot more daring with him than I ever was with Felicity. He has four teeth now & he will pretty much give anything a go. So today we went for waffles, porridge and a small bottle. He had a great time 🙌 he’s very independent & doesn’t like me feeding him anymore. Who am I to stand in his way! #BigBoy#GrowingUp#BabyLedWeaning#AllTheGearNoIdea 😂 #Adventurous#HandmadeClothing#GettingConfident
Not sure what my weight is anymore with holidays and weddings getting in the way. At my last weigh in I was 14.4 - not amazing but I’ve not been calories counting since June so not bad considering. I’m trying to waiting until after my holidays to start Christmas weight loss count down. It’s fair to say I didn’t meet my target however I’ve been really struggling to accept my body and so dieting was making my anxiety worse. I made the decision to give up on weight loss and prioritise other areas of my life. From September to Christmas I hope to lose a stone like last year which would bring me to 13.4 which I was be amazed with perhaps push to be 13st #gettingconfident#changingmylifestyle#trying#cuttingsomeslack#lovingmybody#anxiety#dontwanttohatemyself
