Plus-size athlete and trainer Louise Green wants to empower other plus-size women to work out — not necessarily to lose weight, but because exercise is great for your health and makes you feel like a badass.
1.Think of yourself as the CEO of your body.
2.You're going to want a trainer, tribe, and team.
3.So don't be afraid to ask a lot of specific questions.
4.Be ready to invest real time working on your relationship with food.
5.Think of weight loss as a by-product of healthier habits, not a main goal.
6.Track your progress — but not with a scale.
7.Get a legit sports bra, pants with compression and a drawstring, and proper sneakers.
8.Surround yourself with hardcore body positivity.
9.And do whatever TF workout you want to do.
