How many times in my life have I stood in front of a mirror, annoyed and angry about the body God gave me? About a million at least. Easy feelings to have in a world obsessed with thigh gap and whatever “body part goals” are trending on our Instagram feed.
It’s so much worse for today’s girl. This world is one airbrushed, photo-shopped picture of a reality that does not exist.
Enter Kim Dolan Leto. Fitness model, nutrition expert, and champion for women everywhere to find their worth in God so they can love and celebrate their bodies. Obviously, we love her.
Fun Facts About Kim (direct from her website):
* * * *
Personally, I really connected with Kim in that she’s accomplished a lot “later in life.” So many young people want to literally conquer the world by the time they’re 25, and a lot of them feel like failures if they don’t. I know I felt like that. I thought I had to be a certain something (have certain things, look a certain way) to be what the world would say is a strong and successful young woman.
Kim has been through such an interesting and inspiring journey, and her story is one that can help girls when their inner monologue tells them it's natural and normal to compare themselves to others and that the world's measure of success and beauty should be their own.
She sent me a copy of her amazing book “F.I.T. Faith Inspired Transformation” and the connection of faith and fitness has already impacted my household. Can’t you just see Rooney and I rolling around on the floor, umm, working out? Thanks, Kim!
