Molly Galbraith: Bikini Body PHOTO


Molly Galbraith, co-founder of Girls Gone Strong, described as "a movement started in 2011 by seven women who wanted to change the landscape of nutrition and training information for women", and who describes herself and what she does on her Facebook page as "My passion is helping women look and feel their best, and have grace and compassion towards their bodies", has posted this photo on Facebook only three hours ago and it has received many, many shares. Hundreds. Watch it grow into hundreds of thousands.

Here is the photo, with the caption below:

She writes:

This is my body. 

This not a before picture. 
This is not an after picture.

This just happens to be what my body looks like on a random Tuesday in December of 2015 — it's a LIFE picture.

This is a body that loves protein and vegetables and queso and ice cream.
This is a body that loves bent presses and pull-ups and deadlifts and sleep.

This is a body that has been abused with fast food and late nights and stress.
This is a body that has been pushed to the brink of leanness in figure competitions and maximum strength in powerlifting meets.
This is a body that begged for mercy when it was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and PCOS.

This is a body that has been called:

- too fat
- too thin
- too masculine
- too strong
- too weak
- too big
- too skinny

...all within the same week.

This body has been publicly evaluated, judged, and criticized, and those judgments have been used to determine my level of skill as a coach and a trainer, and my worth as a person, both positively and negatively.

Some people say they would "kill to have this body."
Others say they would "kill themselves if they had this body."
(Yes, unfortunately that's actually a thing humans say to one another.)

This is a body that I spent too much time, energy, and mental space wishing would look differently.

And today?

Today this is a body that is loved, adored, and cherished by the only person whose opinion matters — ME.

This is the first year in as long as I can remember that I have made NO resolutions to change the way my body looks.

This is a kind of freedom I didn’t think I’d ever experience, and it feels really, really good.

I think Molly looks fantastic. That, to me, is a sexy body. Curvy, healthy thighs, great breasts, curves galore, and kinda perfect - in my eyes.

I have friends who are ALL body shapes, and I think ALL of them are sexy-as.

I am predisposed to thinking fuller shapes are more appealing, but I think that's because I am trying to 'justify' my curvy body, to make myself feel better about my own curves, which I love sometimes, and sometimes I don't.

Readers of this blog will know I am OBSESSED with models, who are, traditionally, leaner and not as 'curvy.' This is a definite throwback to my days ogling the original batch of supermodels, from the 1990s supermodel era: Cindy C, Claudia S, et al
