“Is Solace anywhere more comforting than the arms of my sister?” -Alice Walker
After trying to find ways to share these images with you all over the last few days, I think I found a remedy on Instagram. Facebook locked my account for a day. I have so many feelings and thoughts on how policies and rules are created to police our bodies, our art, our stories. I’ll share them another day, but until then, behold and witness these beauties.

Se identificou com o questionamento acima?🤔
Então vamos lá!!
Todas as vezes em que o peso, mais precisamente a perda de peso é colocada em foco no tratamento, é possível que se crie uma expectativa acerca de um resultado.
Diante dessa expectativa é comum a adesão de alguns comportamentos como a prática de dietas restritivas, uso de medicamentos para emagrecer, atividade física extenuante e outros; tais comportamentos promovem uma agressão no metabolismo acarretando aumento de estresse e ansiedade.
Em resumo, é exatamente a pressa em emagrecer, que acontece quando o foco está na balança, que aprisiona no círculo vicioso do "efeito sanfona".
O trabalho com foco no comportamento vai na raiz, é preciso conhecer o corpo, entender como e quando ele saiu do seu peso de equilíbrio, para que os atuais comportamentos sejam identificados e trabalhados.
Fez sentido para você?😉

Sooooo this morning I was dreading doing a workout knowing that Violet was home from school today. I've been hitting my cycling classes on the days she is usually not at school because... well I thought it was easier! haha!
When I told her it was time for Mommy to do her workout, did three things that caught me a little off guard!
1. Threw the iPad on the floor and looked at me with a smile
2. Said "Hold on Mommy! I gotta get dressed for our workout!
3. Said "Oh! Can you get my weights? They're downstairs.
Ummmm....what?! How could I have forgotten that my little mini me LOVES to workout with me?! Does she get in the way? Sometimes..... yes.... but isn't that what the rewind button is for?! Not only that, but I get to show and teach her new habits, and the new program I'm doing has an amazing DJ with great music that we loved to work out to the beat with and dance to during the breaks!
Soooo needless to say.... (If you can't tell from the vibe in our picture today 😂) We had such a fun time together!
Trying to get some quality time in with this little lady is sooo needed before she starts Pre-K in the fall! (Somebody hold me! 🤧) Don't let your kids be the excuse, let them be the reason! Did I mention this was super fun?! lol
There was a time that I wouldn't go ANYWHERE without makeup. I wouldn't answer the door if I didn't have makeup on. I'm far from total body positive, but I have come a long way. .
Don't get me wrong, I love makeup. I feel so much better when I have it on and I'm all put together. However, I also feel a lot more confident in my own skin. .
I use to wear makeup as a mask. It helped cover up my insecurities. I felt naked without it. Not myself. I COULD NOT feel good if I wasn't all done up. .
Today I wear makup when I go out with my husband, or going to church. When I go out just the boys and i, I will put on the bare minimum. I allow my happiness to shine. Its freeing to know that I can smile, and really be happy in my own skin. .
What I've learned is that people don't treat me any different with or without makeup. They treat me the way I treat them. .

An Ode to my Body:
I love you even when you’re bloated
I love you even when you get tired quickly
I love you even though you don’t love gluten
Thank you for giving me strong thighs so I can squat, and rewarding me with a booty
Thank you for letting me run long distances in decent times
Thank you for letting me jump and skip and dance and express joy through you
I’m sorry I sometimes stare at your reflection and don’t love what I see straight away
I’m sorry I eat so much sugar it must be hard to process all those energy spikes (but really not that sorry)
I’m sorry I sometimes let what society thinks come between our good relationship
Thank you for making me strong
Thank you for letting me live well
I love you body 🤞🏻 #odetomybody

The BEST explanation for Body Positivity I’ve ever read! Posted @withrepost • @plus_size_adventurer Body Positivity - is this the same as encouraging people to be fat?
This is an actual question I am asked often. Personal view: I live in a culture that has taught people, and especially women, to link their self worth with their appearance. Every image we see, and every message we are sent, encourages us to criticise ourselves for being imperfect- and often to buy some product to “fix” it. 💲💲
This deeply ingrained cultural obsession leads us to link healthy eating and exercise with trying to achieve an ideal body, and to assume that those not trying to achieve an ideal body must be against healthy eating and exercise. 🤷♀️
This is rubbish. For me body positivity is about delinking weight and fitness with self worth. If this seems confusing let me give an example. 🤷♀️
Lets say you want to learn Japanese. So you take lessons. Do you hate yourself for not speaking Japanese perfectly at the beginning?
Do you test yourself daily and hate yourself if you haven’t improved? Do you put off travelling to Japan until your Japanese is perfect? No, no and no. Because you have not been culturally conditioned to link language ability with self worth. 🤷♀️
Now you want to improve your health and fitness. Do not hate yourself if you are unfit and not healthy at the beginning . As you work on it, there is no need to measure your improvement every day and hate yourself for not seeing immediate results. And you don’t need to put off doing fun active things until your health and fitness are perfect. Just like I can be happy and feel worthwhile when I have not yet learned Japanese, I can also feel happy and worthwhile when I am fat. And I can also want to improve both my Japanese and my fitness. Make sense?

📢Truth: I become more comfortable in my skin the older I get. Sometimes I wish I knew then what I know now, but I would’ve missed out on all the lessons.

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery – air, mountains, trees, people. I thought this is what it is to be happy.” Sylvia Plath
The trail doesn’t care what you wear. The wildflowers aren’t comparing themselves to one another. The river doesn’t expect anything of you.
There is no pretending or performing in nature. There’s just being.
You can escape into nature to explore, find a challenge or adventure. Or to nap under the trees with book. It doesn’t mind one way or another.
And perhaps this is why I feel most myself within, when I am out. Getting muddy, fresh air, catching toads or saving caterpillars hell bent on being trampled on the path (catch my stories for the kids rescue mission 😂). And in my daily routine, I don’t workout for working outs sake, but so I can be here and explore in new ways, fatigue less and have my kids keeping up with me, not the other way around. I take care of my body so my body can take me new places. I hope they always remember these lazy days exploring with their mama who would rather take the muddy path, go for the swim or stop to practice tumbling in the field.
My face to face tuesday! .
What was I thinking letting myself get that bad! .
But was it bad was it really wrong for me to have let myself get like that...
We all have our own demons to face and we all face them our own way, but we can inspire and help eachother! .
We can learn to love ourselves and climb the mountain we choose to climb, because no matter your size your face your health when you reach the top the view will be great!!

THIS is what I was saying to my body during yoga today. Maybe it wasn’t this eloquent but close enough. I took a sweaty Bikram class, a style I don’t usually take, and all I could think was THANK YOU. Even during the toughest parts, or when I could see my stomach looking not so cute, I was thankful for my body and all it is capable of. .
My insecurities used to own me. It’s taken awhile but I’m so happy to be at a place where I focus on my strengths, not my love handles. The love handles are temporary (it’s actually more of a fupa but you get it) but my strength - mental & physical is only going to increase.❤️
Next time a negative thought about your body pops into your head, just TRY to find something positive. Anything. Choose just a little higher vibe thought again and again. You are so much more than any perceived flaw that mostly exists in your mind. Xo
A wise woman once told me “the most important relationship we have in all of our life is with ourselves” and that “every other relationship is a bonus” - it was Beyoncé 👸🏾
I remember when I heard her say that, to the stadium I was in, to 75,000 people; I had just turned 20 and I screamed like I knew exactly what she was talking about. And I thought I did but I was naive & had only scratched the surface of what it truly meant to love yourself fully.
Underneath I was deeply insecure, unsure of myself & unaware of my potential. I understood the importance of loving oneself and yet it felt so wrong; so, I would instead pour that love into anyone I thought might be able to fix me. Friends, lovers, strangers. It wasn’t until I stopped pouring that love into people who didn’t deserve it and put it into my relationship with myself, that I knew exactly what she meant.
I started to be assertive, for me & my goals, I stopped crying in front of the mirror every time I got dressed and I started to compliment myself. I wasn’t ashamed of being sassy or confident because I knew it was a part of my power. I stopped filling the silence with other people’s noise and started singing to myself. .
There are some people who would look at my hair slides and think “who the hell does she think she is?!” I am Sophie-Jayne Butler, I am in a loving relationship with myself and I’m on my queen bitch shit.💖

Hands up if you’ve ever been called a shawty! 🙌🤣⠀
Where are my petite ladies at?! 🙋♀️ Ok - so it’s not my birthday, but I thought this quote was super funny I had to put it on a letterboard! 😅 Aside from it being way too difficult to shop for clothes 👗 that don’t drag the floor on me and spending more money 💰 on alterations than I do on the clothing item itself, I’ve really grown to love my tiny 5 foot self. ❤️ BUT, for SO many years I honestly hated my short stature. I wanted to look tall and lean, but I knew there was no way I could achieve that unless I grew a few inches!! 🤨 This made me feel so insecure and uncomfortable in my body. Upon becoming an adult, I started to focus on the things I was THANKFUL for with my body like my legs that allow me to go on the runs I enjoy so much 🏃♀️, and a body that allowed me to do super fun, crazy things like join the circus in college! 🎪 On top of it, Andrew, my husband complimented me one random day a few years ago and told me one of his favorite features about myself is my tiny height!! 💕 Go figure. I cannot stress how important it is to accept your body the way it is, and because of this, it is something very important that I work on with clients in my 1:1 Food Freedom Coaching Program. 🙌⠀
If you’re in a funk with the way you view your body 💔, if you don’t feel comfortable in your skin or feel insecure with how your body looks - apply to my 🌟 3-month Food Freedom Coaching Program 🌟 (link in bio!) where I help women like you, learn to love your body just how it is and eat with zero guilt (without worrying how any foods will impact your body size), just like I did! 👏⠀

The many messages I received from my last post was crazy... From women who are currently pregnant to women who had babies ten years ago, their messages were the same: how do we love these “new” bodies for what they have accomplished while striving daily to become our best self. We all know what a miracle it is to grow a beautiful human and that we should appreciate our bodies for what they can accomplish in every season of life, but it is a journey.
So a friend and I decided to start a Facebook group “Bodies after Babies” where we talk openly about the journey and offer each other support through the triumphs and challenges- so that we can be an example to our children of what it looks like to love ourselves completely. If you want to join the journey drop a comment below or click the link in my bio😘
Something died in me a long time ago, but here I am with the rest of me still living. I‘m not sure if that’s admirable or sad. I am so far removed from my feelings these days that I’m not sure if I even have them anymore. I don’t want to be cold. I’ve always felt everything so very deeply, and I don’t want to lose that because life changed me and hurt me.
Something died in me, but I am still living. I’m still living as best I can with what’s left of me. It’s truly been like losing a body part or an organ that you can’t go on without, but you do anyway... solely by the grace of something beyond you.
