  1. Thank you! Body-positivity is a really important topic. I’m happy to see the tides turning and all the changes happening in social media that reflect loving who you are and caring for yourself. I know I was one of those people who was stuck on an image of what i should be. All it did was make me more unhealthy. Thanks for reading!
