Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight and get healthy & fit, but I just wish that for every one of these signs selling “get skinny fast” there was a girl next to it who is happy with her curves letting everyone know that it’s OK to have extra inches & pounds.💯 Beauty is an inside thing – not an inches on your waist thing.💗 …Went for a walk tonight & saw this sign. I immediately rolled my eyes & thought, “no thanks, I’ll keep my 2 extra inches or lose them the healthy way.”🤷🏼♀️ There is so much “get skinny fast” being thrown in our faces. The diet industry is a billion dollar industry. It feeds on our insecurities.🙄 It is so rare to see real human bodies embracing their curves, rolls, & cellulite…and ads like this only encourage more self-scrutiny.🤦🏼♀️ I’ve never been more aware of how I treat & talk about my body — especially in front of my kids. I don’t want either one of them to hate any part of their beautiful little bodies.🙏🏻 But just for the record, I don’t think there’s anything wrong if you’re a grown adult & decide you want to take this Doc up on their offer & try to lose the 2 inches in 25 minutes. I’m posting this to show the other side – the side that is rarely shown – that it’s ok to keep your extra pounds and still be happy & beautiful.🥰 I wish there were more messages of self love AS IS out there. Our waist size doesn’t determine our beauty.💗 #selflove #normalizenormalbodies #cellulit #cellulite #bodypositivity #bodypositive #embraceyourbody
She said, “I’m shy and scared. I also didn’t have postpartum depression after Gracie. I can’t explain it, the way I feel. It’s not okay, and I’m trying to figure it out.”
Jamie has been seeking therapy and working on figuring out her feelings and getting better. Fans love that they can relate to her. And, many admire her openness and honesty.
