The first step in learning to love and accept my body was being comfortable with my fat. I feel like, at least for me personally, the second step is being comfortable parting with my fat without conflating that with hating myself. Taking joy in being active and accepting whatever the outcome of that activity is, be it weight loss or plateau, feels very good to me. Being active is far more fun when the goal isn’t to punish yourself for not being good enough.

MelVFitness posted this image on instagram a few days ago with the following caption:
"Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes. Wanna know my secret? Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet cause that shit is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they’re a size bigger & black is slimming), smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip- threw in a skinny arm, stood a bit wider #boxgap, pulled my shoulders back and added a bit of a cheeky “I’m so proud of my results” smile. Zoomed in on the before pic- zoomed out on the after & added a filter. Cause filters make everything awesome.
What’s my point? Don’t be deceived by what you see in magazines & on Instagram. You never see the dozens of other pics they took that weren’t as flattering.”
This is amazing.

If you are doing the31 day perfect butt program you can easily include this workout as a part of your plan by simply including it on the day after your lower body workout.
