"Bikini season" makes me self-conscious!

 
With the weather warming up and "bikini season" here, I get self-conscious about my body. I'm at a healthy weight, but I'm bigger than most of my friends. I do crunches and ab workouts but nothing seems to help. What am I supposed to do to lose weight and get my stomach flatter?

Hey girl!

Feeling confident about your body can be really tough -- especially during bikini season. It's important to remember, though, that feeling good about yourself is way more important that worrying what other people think of you! Don't push yourself to be the same size as your friends -- everyone's body is unique, and if you're a healthy weight, then that's all that really matters.

Keep up the good work

Keep on exercising and eating well, because those things are important to keep you healthy. But instead of focusing on losing weight during your workouts, think about how you're keeping your body healthy and feeling good. That's way more important than numbers on a scale! You'll feel better about yourself and more confidence if you feel good about your body and proud of the way you're taking care of it!

Find a suit that flatters you

If you're too self-conscious in a bikini, then don't wear one! There's no rule that says you have to, and finding a suit that looks great on you and makes you feel good about yourself will make your summer way more fun. No one wants to spend their day at the beach worrying about how they look, and you can find super cute one-pieces and tankinis that are just as stylish as a bikini!

There's no comparison

Stop comparing yourself to your friends! Everyone is unique, and different people have different body types and weights. If you're at a healthy weight, congratulations! You should be proud of the body that you have, and not worry so much about how you compare to other people.

Everyone gets self-conscious about their bodies sometimes, but as long as you're keeping yourself healthy, you should feel good about yourself! If you're exercising and eating well, keep it up, but don't overdo it just to lose a couple extra pounds -- it's not worth it.
