I have a confession to make.

So you know how I talk a lot about body image and how weight loss shouldn’t be the sole focus of our fitness mission?

Constantly having that message floating around in my brain and constantly writing about it started to make me feel like it would never be OK for weight loss to be a part of my own goals again.

It’s no secret that I love snacks. If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll find this fact is quite apparent.
