I understand her point, sort of. She claims she does not mean to be judgmental but it does come across this way to many people. A long time ago I saw this and it was way more motivational but basically says the same thing
I have worked hard for the last 4 years and I will never, never look like this or any other cover model. I have a jelly belly, thighs that rub together and wrinkles, lots of them. I have been told by others that I inspire them, maybe, but others truly inspire me. I am surrounded by a large group of ladies who inspire me weekly with their accomplishments and struggles, we do not have perfect bodies but we work hard to accomplish our goals and do amazing things.
Today this video came across my Facebook, this is way more inspirational to me then Maria Kang's poster. I asked Leslie if I could share her video and she said yes so please enjoy her journey.
Leslie's journey: From Couch to Triathlon
Everyone journey is different, we are individuals and what is inspiration for one may not work for another. Even before I saw Maria's poster I had spent the last few weeks feeling bad about myself, hating my jelly belly and thinking I am less then perfect. Instead of upsetting me it made me realize that I went from this
and I need to be proud of this body it allows me to do amazing things, jelly belly and all.
