LISTEN TO THE LATEST PODCAST EPISODE

90% of women experience cellulite. Wait, did you feel like you were in the minority here? Girlllll, dimple up! You’re normal! Like…Whatever that means…

.

.

It’s never been normalized for us because we haven’t had those doses of reality in media in the past. Except of course “how to eat cucumbers to get rid of pesky cellulite in a week” magazine covers. Which, no thanks. .

.

.

So that’s where we come in. Yes, us. Social media. Pool side. Beach front. In dresses and revealing yoga pants. Self-loving US. .

.

.

Because of massive weight loss, I have both loose skin and cellulite on the backs of my legs. And I have no time or energy to waste on hating that when I’m grateful for the body that carries me daily. Well, minus that sore hip (welcome to your 30’s!). .

.

.

The responses have been 99% amazing when I share. I mean, I think we all give each other a big virtual hug when someone in the world makes us feel less alone. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t the 1% that sends me links for cellulite reduction or calls me disgusting. .

.

.

There will always be those who throw love and throw hate. It’s like cilantro. The difference is, it’s YOUR body. So YOU cannot be the one that throws the hate, because you’re gonna need the love when the haters come around. You’re front lines here. .

.

.

And I don’t have a “thick skin”. In fact, I’m insanely sensitive. But I walk in truth about my body now. A practice I practiced daily, and continue to. A practice that fights in love so that when the hate comes around, the impact is quick before it bounces off and is gone. This is the case because when someone calls me gross or ugly, I’ve already stopped saying those things to myself so it doesn’t have a gateway into my mind or heart anymore. .

.

.

So please – Stop walking past the mirror and cringing when the lighting shows it. Stop over analyzing why you seem to be the only one with it. Stop telling yourself it’s ugly or weird. Trust me, it’s really freaking ok. As one of the 90%, like, seriously, it’s cool. .
