This weekend we were graced with Anna Victoria, the co-founder of the Fit Body Guide,  who wants to take away those myths that everyone is perfect with one recent snapshot that shows the trainer sitting in her workout gear, exposing her bare belly while sitting on the floor.

Victoria says, “I want you to know having skin fold over on your stomach when you sit or to have ‘rolls’ is not anything to hate or be ashamed of,” Victoria also shares that there have been times where she, too, has struggled with embracing her body.

“Your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be healthy, your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be confident and beautiful and an all-around amazing person.”

Instead of being attacked Victoria is being called “an inspiration” for showing that we all may have unrealistic expectations of our bodies!

“As a society, we shouldn’t let physical characteristics set the standard for whether we deserve to love ourselves or not,” she writes.

“Everyone deserves to love themselves.”

Tell us ~ Do you think she is right? Or do you want a flat no flab belly?

There are two reasons I want to share this with you ladies: one reason is because I want you to know having skin fold over on your stomach when you sit or to have “rolls” is not anything to hate or be ashamed of. The other reason is because while I say this, there have been times where if I ever found myself in front of a mirror where I am sitting and I see my stomach, I automatically think “ew!” because this is what society has conditioned me to think. Your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be healthy, your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat for you to love yourself, and your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be confident and beautiful and an all around amazing person. As a society, we shouldn’t let physical characteristics set the standard for whether we deserve to love ourselves or not. Everyone deserves to love themselves, however I know that’s easier said than done. What’s amazing to me and what I have witnessed with the fbg girls is most of the time they start learning to love themselves more on their journey not because of the physical changes, but because of the mental and emotional changes that come from dedicating yourself, pushing yourself, and seeing just how strong you really are. (what we call “non-physical progress” and is just as, if not more important than physical progress). That type of strength and beauty can only be seen and felt from within. 💪💗 #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
