More To Love teaches plus size women how to learn body-acceptance and end dieting for good. 

3 Myths About Body Acceptance Busted

Rachel Estapa

Since creating More to Love, I've heard some women share concerns and fears around what the impact might be if they dare to love, not hate, their bodies.

I want to share with you a few of the most common, and downright untrue, myths around body acceptance to help you realize it's OK to end the struggle with your body-image, your weight, and start on a new path grounded in love.

Myth #1: Body acceptance means you don’t care about your health
 
This is perhaps the biggest myth about people who practice a body-positive way of life: they’ve given up on health.
 
In our culture, you’ve been taught that weight loss is the best (if not only) way to increase health. And if you’re like 95% of dieters, you’ve tried – with all your might – but it doesn’t seem to last very long.
 
Let's look at the bigger story here: many studies and reports (and personal experiences) find that people who adopt a balanced, holistic approach to their well-being experience lower levels of stress, overeating, lower blood pressure, and less shame around their body.
 
Body acceptance increase confidence, self-esteem, and personal power, which all helps you make sustainable choices on your own wellness, and in turn, boosts health long-term.
 
When you follow body acceptance, you compassionately care about the WHOLE of you – body, mind and spirit.
 
Health is a spectrum and looks and feels different on everyone, but the one thread that's true: When you love something, you take better care of it.
 
And that’s what More to Love Course teaches you, how to take care of your body in a way that feels kinder and supports you long-term. 
 
Myth #2: Body acceptance happens overnight, anything longer means you’re failing at it
 
Another idea to let go of: that loving your body needs to happen in a flash and if you struggle with it, that means you'll never get it.
 
Eeek, no way!

Body acceptance is a process, but it's one you can learn and see results from very quickly. That’s the reason I created the course, because I know what helps move you deeper and smoother into body acceptance than going it alone.
 
The secret to MTLCourse is that you embody confidence, here and now. The more you can FEEL and experience positive thoughts, habits and ways of looking at yourself, the quicker those sink in and help transform not just your relationship to your body, but your life. 
 
Myth #3: There is a “right way” to be with your body
 
There are over 7 billion people in the world, each with their own unique body, make-up, realities and experiences.

The idea that there is ONE right way to have a body is not true – you, me, your friends, family – each of us have so many different things, it’s impossible for someone else to know exactly what you should do or even know what you’ve gone through.

Some days you feel awesome, other days not-so-great, and some days you feel like a stranger in your own body. Know that this is normal, natural, but the key to living more body-positive is that you'll have the tools and deep self-awareness to help you navigate. The bumps, they come for everyone..including me.

I can help you learn how to trust yourself better because right now, you are the expert on your own body! The More to Love Course offers you a whole variety of options, ideas, and perspective on ways for you to listen better to yourself and become a friend, not enemy, to your own happiness. 

Every single one of More to Love Course's lessons and activities is designed for you to thrive through your personal expression and revelations as you grow more connected to your body. This is the secret to why More to Love Course succeeds in helping women love their body.

I hope you'll join me and other women who will put these myths in their place...history!
