Summer has finally arrived and leading up to summer, I heard a lot of people talking about getting their “summer bodies” ready. The thing that puzzles me the most is how social media, tv, and the magazines will guilt some people into feeling like they are not enough. The problem with that is none of the pictures in the magazine are reality. Most of them are photoshopped, filtered, and edited. unlike mine. What you see is what you get, this is my reality 🔽🔽🔽
Well I’m here to tell you that as long as you’re happy with your summer body, no one else’s opinion of you should matter. Stop comparing yourself to the fakeness of others. A lot of these women are walking around with these bodies that they paid for (yea I said it) looking good on the outside but unhappy as hell on the inside.
I, myself, have never been the one to give a f**k about what others think of me. I’m 2 months shy of being 45 years old, I have 4 kids ranging from 11 to 28 and I even have an almost 2 year old grandson. I’m a size 10, I have belly fat, cellulite, and stretch marks but that doesn’t make me less confident or less attractive than the size 2 model starving herself to prepare for her next photo shoot.
In high school, I was 112 pounds and I hated being so skinny. I prayed to gain weight and then finally after my 4th child, it hit me like a ton of bricks lol but I’m not complaining. If I didn’t like my size, trust me, I would do something about it. I don’t exercise and sweets are my best friend. Although I do plan to implement a 30 min walk into my life about 3-4 times a week. I haven’t quite done it yet. So I guess I will attribute it to my genes 🤷🏽♀️
I have always been very confident within myself and I encourage my daughters and other women to be happy with themselves. As long as you’re healthy then there’s nothing to be worried about.
Don’t believe the hype, everyone isn’t meant to be skinny and that’s okay. Bottom line is, do what makes you happy and what makes you feel good about yourself. Nothing else matters. I’m always feeling myself, some people hate my level of confidence simply because their’s is low. Not my problem. I happen to be one of the finest and flyest grandmas in the city 🙌🏾 So Imma give em something to talk about! Here you go, get this summer body 👏🏾👏🏾
