as chief fitlosopher + creator of fitbook, iím reaching out to you in hopes that youíll join me in a cause thatís near + dear to my heart. as you may (or may not) know, i battled eating disorders and a negative body image for about 7 years, which is a large part of why i created fitbook. that said, i understand the struggle that people face due to a poor body image. this is an ongoing battle for so many people and we want to change this!
with thanksgiving approaching, it's the perfect time to take a moment to be thankful. we work hard to keep our bodies in shape all year round and now is a great time to appreciate all that it does for us. having a positive body image keeps us healthy and fit!
FACT: people who have a positive body image shed 6% more weight than less confident people. pressuring ourselves to be "perfect" means setting unrealistic goals - instead, set achievable yet challenging goals so you're more likely to succeed! (SELF magazine, Oct 2011)
SO...what can YOU do?
