People Are Thanking This Woman For Posting Photos Of Her Stomach Rolls

Ashlie Molstad is keeping it real.

Now this is amazing.

Ashlie Molstad, a Beachbody coach from Portland, posted two photos of herself on Facebook that are going viral for all the right reasons.

The 31-year-old, who also goes by Foodie Girl Fitness on her social media accounts, posted two side-by-side images last week, one with a flat belly and the other with belly rolls.

"If I'm going to show you the posed, put together, professional sides of me, I'm gonna make damn sure you see the not so flattering sides too," she posted on her Facebook page.

"Because, contrary to what society has taught us to think, our worth isn't measured by how many belly rolls we have, or how many dimples on our booty, or how much jiggle hangs out on our arms."

She continued, "Loving ourselves exactly as we are is hard. Because we've been told for years that we're not good enough until we {insert any of the thousands of ideas of perfection that has been fed to us over the years}. But I call BS. I say that the real magic happens when we embrace who we are, at every angle and size."

Posting the same photo on Instagram, Molstad got hundreds of messages thanking her and as commenter buttercup_original noted, being fit is not clear-cut.

"[sic throughout] i'm so sick of seeing 'ab cracks' and 'thigh gaps' when a) that doesn't prove how hard you train and b) doesn't prove how committed you are to health and fitness. You're amazing! just the kind of pick-me up post I needed to see."

On her Instagram page, Molstad posts everything from before and after shots of her clients, motivational quotes and pictures of her progress.

You go girl!

Here is her full post:

"Same girl. Different angles.

If I'm going to show you the posed, put together, professional sides of me, I'm gonna make damn sure you see the not so flattering sides too. Because, contrary to what society has taught us to think, our worth isn't measured by how many belly rolls we have, or how many dimples on our booty, or how much jiggle hangs out on our arms.

Loving ourselves exactly as we are is hard. Because we've been told for years that we're not good enough until we {insert any of the thousands of ideas of perfection that has been fed to us over the years}. But I call BS. I say that the real magic happens when we embrace who we are, at every angle and size.

This doesn't mean I don't also struggle with embracing this body I was given, but it does mean that I understand working on loving me is the most important job I will ever have.

Our bodies aren't broken. The message society is trying to tell us {by airbrushing everything, erasing dimples and rolls and fluff} is.

So even though its really hard, lets remember we are worthy and beautiful and special and ALIVE. Go on and love yourself today, because THAT shit is whats inspiring.
