THIS is EXACTLY what I am doing this for. A lot of people- myself included- have this distorted sense of beauty, but that’s what this movement is working to change. I’m doing all these challenges and working hard to strengthen myself both physically and mentally. I want to be able to fully accept myself and my body and to be happy with who I am and what I look like. I’m slowly getting to that point- it’s tough and it’ll surely take time, but I’m determined to get there. We’re all beautiful the way we are, and it’s beautiful that we can push ourselves and be the best that we can be. It’s beautiful that we have passion about exercise and our health. It’s beautiful that we strive for our goals. It’s beautiful that we’re determined and will never give up. Every step of the way is beautiful.
