What if we all found joy in what our bodies could do rather than the number they move on the scale?

I know the girls on the site are small. They’re professional dancers, so they work out ALL THE TIME. But wouldn’t it be great if women and girls could respect the bodies we have because they are functional and fun?

Today, I caught one of my budding dancers sizing herself up in the mirror — you know, pulling up her shirt, sucking in her tummy, shaking her head at every ounce of “extra” weight. Tomorrow, she gets a copy of this. The whole book. And she’s reading it start to finish. Beauty comes from hard work, focus, and confidence. Not from being small. Thank God!
