You may remember Ashlie Molstad, aka Foodie Fitness Girl, her before and after Picture that last fall viral. In the first image, she stands, with a flat stomach. Second, they must show off his belly rolls. “I say that the real magic happens when we embrace who we are at any angle and size,” writes Molstad in the legend.
Social media Star
Now the social media star and fitness trainer is back with another powerful body of positive message: It’s time to put all the negative thoughts we have on our bodies – turning them into positive silence.Earlier this week Molstad posted a photo of herself to rocking a black sports bra, underwear, and a radiant smile (not to mention some beautiful mermaid hair).
I have large strong legs that aren't the least bit feminine. My calves are so large I can only fit them into wide-calf boots. I have belly jelly and a pooch that can't be hidden in tight clothes. I do not have toned arms. My face is scarred from years of cystic acne. I have stretch marks on my thighs, breasts and butt. I don't like wearing jeans anymore because they don't always fit over my hips and if they do they generally cut into my stomach. . . WAIT… let me try that again… . . I have strong legs that are capable of taking me anywhere I need to go, and have walked me across several half marathon finish lines, danced like crazy on some of my favorite evenings, and swam in the ocean under the sun as I've traveled to see parts of this world. . . My stomach might be soft, but it is the place that my deepest belly laughs come from. And just because it is soft, does not mean it isn't strong. It holds me up, protects my back, and propels me through basically any movement I choose. . My arms have allowed me to hug my favorite people on this planet, high-fived some serious rockstars, and I can do like, 15 pushups on my toes with their strength! . My face does have scars, but my skin isn't the only thing that determines my beauty. . Stretch marks might cover parts of my body, but those parts are strong and a part of me- and as far I can tell, they're just rad little lightning strikes to remind me I am a force of nature. . I may not be able to fit into my jeans from a year ago, but leggings are more comfortable anyway. And I can wear the SHIT out of a smile. . Don't ever forget my loves that your value isn't in the circumference of your thighs, the softness of your belly, the marks on your body… you value is INFINITE. You don't have to change your body, you just need to change your thoughts. #YouAreMoreThanYourBody #SelfLoveSoldier
Ideas on Self-acceptance
The beginning of his title is a bit shocking, as it seems that Molstad completely abandoned his ideas on self-acceptance. She writes that her legs “are not in the least feminine” and her calves “so great that I can fit them in wide boots of the calf. She continues to talk about her “jelly belly and a pug that can not be hidden in tight clothing.” “”I do not have washed-out arms,” she continues. “My face is drawn from years of cystic acne. I stretch marks on my thighs, breasts and ass. I do not wear jeans anymore because they do not always fit on my hips and if they do it usually cut my stomach. ”
Sounds negative, right? But Molstad abruptly stops his flow of criticism, and fresh start.
In her revise, it calls all the same body as before; But this time they compliment everyone. From her legs, she writes them loud and able to have her which she needs nowhere to go, and even “put me between the half marathon lines, dancing like crazy on some of my favorite nights, and Swam in the ocean under the sun when I traveled to see parts of the world. ”
She stresses that, yes, her stomach was sweet, “but it is the place where they come from my deep belly laugh. “Plus,” she said, “he’s also super strong:” He holds me up, protects my back and pushes me through essentially every movement I choose. “Describe the pursuit of his body, Molstad writes: “My arms are around me my favorite stuffed animal on this planet, high fived a few serious rock stars, and I can do like 15 push-ups on my toes with their strength! ”
Force of Nature
She also notes that although they may have scars and stretch marks, the skin is not what determines its beauty. In fact, these brands are “lightning just rad just to remind me that I am a force of nature. “Entertaining Molstad from: If you fall into a spiral of self-criticism on your body or anything else not back and focus that energy on yourself building the place.
“Never forget my love for you is not worth the circumference of your thighs, the softness of your belly, the marks on your body … your value is endless,” Molstad said to his more than 47,000 followers. “You do not have to change your body, you just need to change your mind. “
