Following on from my swimsuit post, I just want to say a big thank you for the positive comments! It has certainly been very liberating to put such 'real' pictures of myself out there. When I first pressed 'publish' on the post I was cringing inside, but on reflection I don't quite know why. I'm just a normal woman looking healthy and shapely.
Why do we get so hung up on our body image? If I'm ok with sitting on the beach in a swimsuit then what's the difference between that and showing it on my blog? Well, I guess on a beach I'm surrounded by loads of people and not the centre of attention, but I'm out there and not cowering away in the shadows. The positive comments make me want to encourage everyone to follow suit.
Channel your inner Marilyn and show the world what 'real' women look like!
