Snap Of Former Bodybuilder's Bum Goes Viral For The Right Reasons

Snap Of Former Bodybuilder's Bum Goes Viral For The Right Reasons

Fair enough.

A snap of a former bodybuilder's bum has gone viral on social media as she wants to show that "cellulite, love handles or extra pounds" are not "flaws."

Fitness blogger Molly Galbraith, from Lexington, Kentucky, says she is rejecting the idea that women should "accept and embrace" their "flaws" as she does not believe they are flaws in the first place.

The 32-year-old also rejects the idea women should strive for the perfect body.

Molly, who is 5ft 10in and weighs 12st 1lbs, said: "So many women are at war with their bodies and it's so tragic because I feel like they are so consumed with the size of their thighs that they miss out on living their life.

"For me to hear that women are literally sitting on the sidelines because they think there is something fundamentally wrong with their bodies is just heartbreaking.

"I agreed with the 'embrace your flaws' narrative for decades and I let it run through my head like a broken record while punishing myself with intense exercise and restrictive dieting to fix those things the world told me needed fixing.

"'I have cellulite on my legs, stretch marks on my hips, butt, and breasts, and some jiggle on my belly - and the world constantly wants me to believe this is not OK."

"But I won't subscribe to someone else's standards and ideals for MY body.

"So, instead of embracing what someone else determined to be a flaw of mine, I choose to embrace my whole, flawless body."

In a recent picture on social media, Molly can be seen wearing black gym-wear which leaves her bottom exposed as she looks into a mirror and applies mascara, alongside an explanation of why she is choosing to reject the notion of 'flaws' in the coming year.

She wrote: "I'm NOT embracing my flaws in 2017. Why? Because I'm not the one who decided they were flaws to begin with."

It's great to see people are embracing body positivity for the coming year.

A new year, a new attitude towards women's bodies.
