Listen up ya'll 'cause health and fitness coach Caleh Cristler has a message for you, and it's a doozy: don't let your body hang-ups stop you from reaching your fitness goal. The mum-of-three shared a snap on her Instagram which showed her proudly displaying her loose skin - acquired after having her baby girl four months ago.
While Cristler appreciates the physical benefits of fitness, she is keen to point out you are more than just the way you look.
"Please do not let the fear of loose skin, stretch marks, cellulite, or anything else, stop you from reaching your goals," she says in her empowering post. "What if you have loose skin? Girl, what if you uncover an amazing warrior who is the strongest mentally, physically, and emotionally that she has ever been? Are you going to let some jiggle stop you? Don't you dare."
Caleh then goes on to tell her fans they're not alone in their insecurities - everyone has issues with some part of their body, but it's up to you to decide how you deal with that.
"Newsflash! Everyone has something on their body that they consider an imperfection! Everyone has insecurities! But guess what? You have the power to overcome those issues. You have the power to be more than your worries or anxiety.
"So, I'm here sharing my four-month postpartum belly from my third baby girl and second c-section, in the hopes that maybe you can begin to realize you are MORE. You are MORE than ENOUGH. Right now. Just as you are. So start believing in yourself and loving that body enough to be happy and healthy."
We hear that, girl! Forget cellulite and stretch marks, it's all about being happy in mind and body. We think this is as good a time as any to celebrate ourselves with a gin and tonic - the body hangups can wait.
