This is a blog post that has been a long time in the making, it's a topic that has been on my mind for some time and I thought right now seems like the perfect time to write it. As is sit in a hotel room in Manchester on the eve of a very big and exciting MyProtein shoot, it just feels right to talk about how I have finally found body confidence.

It may come as a surprise to some of you reading this, that I haven't always been confident with the way I look. I have struggled with body confidence for most of my life and this year I just didn't want to feel crap about myself anymore! I wanted to look in the mirror and see good things, not just the areas that I don't particularly like. So changes had to be made and the only person that could implement these changes was me.

I have always thought of myself as a confident person and that is definitely the persona I have been putting out, but "body confidence" is something I guess I faked - more often than not. For many years I battled with body dysmorphia and for a good chunk of my late teens I suffered with bulimia. Which if any of you have battled with will know it's a something you keep private and hide away from the rest of the world. For me it felt like the only way I could have ultimate control, but in reality all I was actually doing was harming the one thing I should of been protecting. I should of been treating my body like a Queen, not punishing it.

When I look in the mirror now I am making myself see the good and if there is something I see that I am not happy with then I think, ok how can I change that? Maybe I need to change my workouts or eat a little cleaner for a while, OR maybe I just need to accept that this is my body and I should love it. Every stretch mark, scar, freckle or curve, these are the things that make me who I am.

It's taken me a long time to get to this stage and it's not been easy but the funny thing is the older I get the happier I have become and more secure I am within myself. I know my own mind, I can finally feel confident with in myself and that's a pretty amazing feeling to have.

So if I could give any advice to my 16 year old self or anyone reading this who can relate to how I was feeling, it would be to STOP! Stop seeing the bad, life is way too short for that. Love who you are because you are unique. Embrace who you are, own it and rock it.

Here's to loving who you are and doing you! Don't compare yourself to someone else, just be yourself and enjoy your life. You don't know how lucky you are to have it.

  1. Really loved this, thank you for your honesty I wish more women spoke more openly and honestly about body image. Just discovered your blog via instagram love it! Xx laura x

  2. I didn't realize until recently how I was still carrying that teenage mindset around. It occurred to me that I approached most decisions involving work and home as a rational adult, but when it came to my looks, I became a critical teenager. Letting go of my inner insecure teenager was one of the best things I ever did for myself. Thank you for your inspiring words!
