The intersection of sex and body image.

On Wear Your Voice Mag, I’m sharing a goodbye to a fitspo obsessed friend.

I don’t think you see that the fitspo you hold so dearly can be incredibly damaging for others. To me, it’s no better than a slightly dressed up version of thinspo. That’s like replacing one kind of body shaming with another — it’s never as “healthy” as you want it to be.

I’m happy that your transformation photos give you motivation to eat good foods and move your body, but I’m 100 percent not okay with the hefty side-serving of shame that you project onto everyone around you who doesn’t immediately jump on the bandwagon.

I’m just fine being my imperfect self — the version of myself that enjoys working out and eats a balance of foods. The version of myself that may not be the leanest person at the beach in a bikini, but knows that she worked damn hard to overcome her demons and is thriving today. The version of myself that is perfectly content with not feeling guilty every time I don’t meet my squat goal and doesn’t beat herself up if she eats a big bowl of ice cream for dessert.

And I’m sure as hell not going to be berated by you about that.

So for now, FOF, this is goodbye.

As much as I like your friendship, I love myself more.
