“Im going to workout, look amazing and they will RUE the day we ever ended!”

🥤We see it a lot, we hear it even more [no thanks, khloe] and it’s problematic [to put it mildly] for so👏many👏reasons👏
🔎The revenge body concept suggests:
🚀Our focus should be spent shrinking + changing our bodies
🚀Our ‘value’ is connected to how we look-our body is our highest commodity
🚀The objective is to cause hurt to another, with our body as the weapon
🚀It suggests the other person was wrong to end the relationship, and by changing our bodies, they’ll finally see us as worthy
💡The RB fantasy paints a picture of the heartbroken groveling ex; crawling through their own snot whilst simultaneously sobbing + begging for forgiveness 🤧
Time to burst the bubble.
What would it honestly + realistically achieve? Apart from constantly thinking about an ex when they’re most likely moving on?
🔮Getting through a breakup can be amongst the most difficult moments we come to in life, but the idea that the hurt + pain we experience can be resolved by changing our bodies, is a falsehood
🔮It asks us to place endless amounts of time into creating something that isn’t for us, but is for the satisfaction of an ex
🔮Everyone is entitled to leave relationships. If someone wants to get back with us after we’ve ‘revenge bodied’ what does that say about their values + what they see in us?
🔮It reaffirms the dangerous notion of expecting people to alter their bodies for an apparent glow-up after heartbreak and grief. We don’t need to navigate our lives and bodies around someone else’s value judgement of us. We don’t need to give away our power✨

THEN ➡️ NOW: my waist is 3 inches smaller than the circumference of my thigh in 2017 🤯 -
I didn't measure myself for over a year and it was sooo crazy to see how much progress I've made. A lot of my measurements changed by OVER 10 INCHES?! I think that's a great #nsv 🔥 don't always rely on your weight to see your progress. Take pictures, measurements, and acknowledge all the new experiences bettering your health makes possible!! -
I lost +100 pounds in 10 months (and kept it off!!) while focusing on living the healthiest and happiest life possible 💗 follow me for daily health inspiration!! -
Go get it, with me breaking up with my ex I knew I needed a lifestyle change for myself. I knew that I needed to feel self love, and power. Like Khole Kardashian always says there nothing better than a revenge body! I am still going 😉 #khloekardashian#revengebody#mymotivation
🗣️ TRAAAAAASSSSSHHHHHH. Your body is not a weapon to hurt other people with. Or an ornament to alter for their approval. And if they've hurt you? The best way to heal is to let go of needing their validation in any way, shape or form and thrive for YOU. •
You don't need a different body to move on, to feel whole after being broken, or to show them that you're worth more than they thought you were (whoever "they" are - an ex, old friends, or just someone who didn't see that you're worth the world already). For real, forget a revenge body. How about a "I refuse to let that person's opinion decide my value ever again" body? The body you've got is good enough to be that. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 • [Image description: an illustration by @hotcuppacoco showing a person with green hair shouting the words "the concept of a revenge body is trash" against a coral background"] #bodypositivity#revengebody#bodyconfidence#bodypositive

Happy #RAWWFitness Friday! We want to continue to encourage our supporters to be active, as health is wealth! This week we have @_xoxosb a fitness client of ours, jumping rope. Why jumping rope? Well, here are a few benefits to doing such an easy yet VERY EFFECTIVE exercise!
Since lots of muscles are being used at the same time, jumping rope is one of the few activities that provide benefits of a full-body workout in less than 15 minutes.
Decreases Foot and Ankle Injuries
“Denim Denial is inspired by the human truth that every woman has a pair of jeans on the top shelf of her closet or tucked away in a bottom drawer that she’s holding on to for that moment when she’s rid herself of that last bit of stubborn fat.” -Kristin Davis
Ever wondered what a Coolsculpted chin looks like right after it’s treated ? We call this a mini frozen butterstick.
Once the coolmini is removed, we complete a 2 minute massage in that area to break up the ice and the skin returns back to its natural color within a few minutes.
Results - a more defined jawline with no injections, no surgery and no downtime. ☎️call/text for your complimentary consultation 786-368-1519
