    International Women's Day Project Tells Women To #StopWaiting

    Have you heard of Halifax? Well, it's the largest City in Nova Scotia, and it's got some pretty amazing women!

    The #StopWaiting Project encourages Women to… well you guessed it… stop waiting.

    How many women do you know that want to get in better shape before doing their first 5K, or want to lose a few extra pounds before getting those sexy photographs taken? This year, the International Women's Day theme is Be Bold for Change - so, that's exactly what this project is telling you to do - #StopWaiting to live your life!

    There has never been a better time to change the dialogue surrounding real women’s bodies in the media, so these ladies decided to show off their bodies and kick start the challenge!

    #StopWaiting has been organized by Sole Sisters Women's Race and Halifax Boudoir, and they kicked it off joined by the women of Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series and local body positivity advocate Jillian McClary with these awesome photos!

    “Over the last few years, hundreds of campaigns have been launched promoting body positivity and encouraging women to embrace their bodies. These campaigns have resonated with women and girls across the globe, but we think it’s time for us to stop talking, and take action.” says Stacy Chesnutt, Race Director of Sole Sisters Women’s Race.

    Founded on real women, body positivity and female empowerment, the Nova Scotian companies are asking women to step outside of their comfort zone, and do something that they have always wanted to do! The campaign encourages women to #StopWaiting. Try yoga. Go for the promotion. Learn a new language. Take the trip. Just go for what you want.

    I've always wanted to try yoga...

    “The project is about more than just taking pictures. It’s about connecting with women of all ages and sizes and letting them know that they are exceptional just the way they are,” says Jenn Gregory, Owner of Halifax Boudoir Inc. “The #StopWaiting movement is about building confidence and body acceptance.”

    The women in this photograph represent strength, empowerment and acceptance - they are true game changers. They are encouraging women to redefine athlete and embrace their bodies – and they look amazing doing it!

    Did you know all of these women run or walk a 5K race alongside thousands of women each year?

    Maybe I should #StopWaiting on that one too...

    Real women. Real action.

    Use the hashtag #StopWaiting and share what you're doing to take action. I know I will be ;)
