CALLING ALL BOOKWORMS!! 📚 (And all non bookworms cuz EVERYONE can benefit from some good ol' fashioned reading!) After getting lots of suggestions from women in the community like @balancing.amanda we've decided it could be fun for us to all read and discuss TOGETHER!! The first book we are starting is "Braving the Wilderness" by Brene Brown. Just read along at your own pace and feel free to share thoughts, questions, and insights under #fitgirlbookclub so we can all join in the conversation! Special thanks to @fitgirlflourishing for bringing up this idea! I know there have been other book clubs flying around the community, thanks everyone for the inspiration we're so excited to do this together!! (And anyone who wants to suggest titles or read other books using the same tag, JOIN IN! There are no "rules" we just wanna learn with each other and FROM each other!)
We are coming together to TAKE A STAND. We have had enough of the stigmas, and the screwed up "social norms." Enough of the fear that makes it difficult to speak out. We are one. And we have a voice. Together we can make change. Stop victim blaming. Stop victim shaming. And start TEACHING boundaries, love, and respect.
"If all the women and men who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem."

Let's all take a moment to celebrate this BEAUTIFUL HUMAN! Read her story below:
""I've watched this video a thousand times of myself, and teared up every time. This right here sums up what this journey with @fitgirlsguide and all of the #fitgirlsguide community.
A year ago, I wasn't even able to look in the mirror without hating myself and what I saw. I was struggling with the ugly beast of depression head on, and it was tearing me to pieces. I was never happy, and always stressed. I didn't even recognize my inner self anymore. I didn't know where I had gone.
Fast forward a year, to this video, and as I watched this video, you guys, I saw her!! I finally saw that glow of joy and happiness, and gratefulness come out from under the darkness! (I saw myself realize that what I was saying really was true... Its so good to be alive!) I started my #fitgirlsguide journey to start losing weight. I haven't lost any weight yet. But I've gained so much more.... I thought I had to be skinny and look a certain way to love myself again. Turns out, I didn't! I can do that right here and now, and that is truly the first step to living a completely full life. I've also gained all of you amazing women. I am beyond blessed and thankful for you beautiful souls. Thank you for helping me learn to live again!!" - @fitgirl_kassieh
