Be happy with the body that you were given!! I know some of you are probably like...Jamie seriously come on you can't tell me that, But it's true! Some peoples' body types were meant to do certain things and be certain sizes and weights. Like some people are meant to be doctors, some are meant to be artists and some firefighters.
So embrace your body!! Working towards the perfect bikini body is only attainable for certain peoples body types, unfortunately. But that doesn't mean ditch the gym! Being active for your health is important, and will still help you reach goals that are attainable for you. Don't feel like your working hard in sweat blood and tears for nothing. Some people have to work a little harder with their physical appearance than others, but I'm sure they were blessed with brains or some other type of amazing quality. Doing what benefits your body and learning to play the cards that you were dealt with is important. Learning how to down play flaws and accentuate our good qualities takes time.
Some people are given "the body" from birth, others have to work for it but can still achieve it, while others will work all of their lives to try to achieve the impossible. For instance I will never have a tapered hourglass stomach/midsection. I have an athletic boxy build and my mesomorph body type isn't going to allow me to healthily get an Adriana Lima tapered teeny waist it's just not going to be attainable for me. I'm sure there are certain body parts that you, YES YOU right now this very minute are thinking of for yourself. So what I want you to do is write it out on a piece of paper. Whatever the body part that you just have excepted that will never belong to you the way you want it to and light it on fire, or throw it away etc...whatever your choice.It's over with. Except your flaws and move on. Only you have the power to overcome it and accentuate your good qualities. Be happy with YOU!
