Ditch the pressure to lose weight!

Things your children should never know about your body confidence

  One of the biggest incentives for me to finally learn to love my body was that I have two daughters. They are both beautiful and amazing in every way. So the thought of them hating themselves even for a moment breaks my heart. I want them to grow up knowing they are...

How instagram is destroying my body confidence

  I've been writing about body positivity for nearly a year. And I love it! But recently I've noticed that my own body confidence has started to drop off again. At first I couldn't quite work out what was going on. I thought I'd overcome all of my body issues so to...

Why I refuse to lose the baby weight so I can just enjoy being me

I've lost count of how many articles I read before baby was born about how to lose the baby weight. I was adamant that the minute he came out I'd be back on to the healthy eating (after developing a serious coke habit - cans obviously - and eating my body weight in...
