11 Body Positive Instagram Accounts to Follow Right Now

We’re all pretty sick of “fitspiration”.

Instagram accounts dedicated to showing you perfectly-toned abs and "before" and "after" weight-loss shots are just depressing. Everyone’s been down that black hole: you look at one photo, and then another, and another… until finally, you’re 178 weeks deep into some model’s photo-a-day feed.

It's not only depressing, it’s boring. So stop following those accounts and start following these ones.

These women show themselves in a happy, positive way without obsessing over perfection. They’re normal people, who don’t have necessarily have time to spend six hours a day in the gym, and they're perfectly content with that.

These women should be your body inspiration. Check them out.

 1. Lena Dunham

The Girls creator is always posting pics of herself, and whether it's in a strange outfit choice, or just wearing not much at all, she's always looks very chill with it. "It" being her body, her style, the world at large…whatever.

Hey everyone, is been awhile! This week feels like a blur, mostly because I feel like I've been sucked into the Pokemon Go world right now, hahahaha! Started late and going strong this week ✌. As much as I've become a zombie, I've loved that such a childhood thing is so fun and relevant right now, and that I've walked so damn much! I have come home exhausted from just walking around trying to level up catching all that I can! 😅 Great job Niantic and The Pokemon Company for getting people out there moving. Stay safe though! I will be teaching again at @curvygirllingerie on August 21st so sign up at my eventbrite!

Happy to share the photo I posed for Substantia Jones awhile back for her Adipositivity Project! Sadly social media is all about that censorship, so fuck that and check out her website for the photo! Even though I had taken a photo of myself nude before, I was still a bit nervous to be photographed by someone else. My nakey butt on the grass was nice though and could have stayed there all day bathing in the sun. Though it was a very gracious lady's house and that would have been weird, lol! When I keep promoting body positivity, sometimes I feel so neutralized to it, that I forget that we still need images like these to share.
