“Tell your daughters. Tell your daughters how you love your body. Tell them how they must love theirs. Tell them to be proud of every bit of themselves - from their tiger stripes to the soft flesh of their thighs, whether there is a little of them or a lot, whether freckles cover their face or not, whether their curves are plentiful or slim, whether their hair is thick, curly, straight, long or short. Tell them how they inherited their ancestors’ souls in their smiles, that their eyes carry countries that breathed life into history, that the swing of their hips does not determine their destiny. Tell them never to listen when bodies are critiqued. Tell them every woman’s body is beautiful because every woman’s soul is unique.” 💞—Tell Your Daughters | Nikita Gill
Your kids don't see YOU as your cellulite, stretch marks, lumps and bumps, saggy skin or clothing size. When they see you, they see their mom—the uncontested center of their world, and they love you as you should love yourself—unconditionally. ❤️ #MotherhoodUncensored #BikiniBodyMommy #TakeBackPostpartum
Look who lost his first tooth while I was on FB LIVE in the BBM Extreme Inner Circle last night!!! For a kid who has literally grown up on camera before the BBM community’s eyes, the timing of this momentous “BIG FIRST” was impeccable 🙊🥇😂 —

P.S. Don’t ask where the tooth went. He may, or may not have accidentally swallowed it. We ended up leaving a hand drawn picture of his lost tooth for the tooth fairy... instead of waiting on the alternative (that’s not really an alternative). 🙈💩🙈💩🙈 #MomLife
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil... 🎃🍭😜#StayStrong #JustSayNo #HalloweenCandy
Love is what's left when you let go of everything you don't need. ❤️ #TheWayHeLovesMeIsntNormal —

Thank you ALL for the overwhelming support and heart-felt relief on our last post. You truly are an extension of our family, and we are grateful everyday for your love!
🏠🔥PERSONAL UPDATE: Yesterday we were one of the thousands of family's who was forced by mandatory evacuation to flee our home, due to the Southern California Canyon Wildfire that started a few miles away from our neighbourhood. While scanning the latest fire authority reports in the wee hours this morning without any knowledge of whether or not our home made it through the night I glanced over at my babies sleeping peacefully in the hotel bed beside us and instantly felt at PEACE. Peace from knowing that even if the fire took everything we owned last night, we'd still have "US" and that is all that matters. —

After seeing the latest fire map this morning which reportedly surrounded our home. We made a decision to drive back to assess the damage and whether or not we could even get back home. We are incredibly relieved to report that while the smoke is still incredibly thick, the road closures have been lifted, and our house and our neighbourhood still stands! —

Our family is incredibly grateful for all of the phone calls, text messages, FB and Instagram messages and mostly your Prayers yesterday and today.  My prayers and gratitude go out to the local Orange County firefighters, Sheriffs Department and any one else out there that worked hard to save our neighborhood. ❤️
For all those who say how much I inspire them with my message of self love and body-positivity, I want you to know that nothing about this message or sharing the "hard stuff," comes easy. I saw this image of me today and instantly fell into a rabbit hole of self doubt. Within 2 seconds, my own internal dialog told me: I looked like a linebacker, I was the queen of back fat, that my ass was so big it looked like it had its own gravitational pull, and that my body must be attempting to communicate its level of disgust through braille via cellulite. Within 2 seconds I had completely demolished my own self-esteem and all "self-love" went out the window! So in an effort to maintain complete transparency, I'm outing myself and letting you all know that while I may have had all of those initial thoughts flow through my mind... I WAS ABLE to change the narrative about those things I perceived as flaws and (after sulking for 5 minutes and being disgusted with myself) I reminded myself how grateful I am for THIS body and for all of the gifts it has given me, and for all of the challenges and weaknesses it is working so hard to overcome — Self-love & self-doubt being two of the hardest! So instead of tearing your own body apart today, I'd love to hear from you below one thing about your body that you LOVE! You'll be amazed how good it feels when you replace a negative affirmation with a positive one! Go on... give it a try! 💞 #BikiniBodyMommy
It is a mistake to judge a woman's health based off of her physical appearance. Right now, this body of mine is sporting 40+ pounds of extra postpartum fluff on my petite 5'3 frame. At a year and a half postpartum I still have a mommy-belly, chunky arms, thick thighs... and my booty? Well, let's just say that everyday I thank my lucky stars that big butts happen to be the "in" thing! 😜🍑 Butt (👈🏻see what I did there? 😉) those are just the external features of who I currently am. On the inside... (you know, the things you CAN'T SEE, but which happen to be the things that matter the most...) my blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, and thyroid levels are the healthiest they've been my entire adult life! My mindset and positive self-talk game is on fire... and this body... this body is physically the strongest it has ever been and it has recently reached new levels of endurance I didn't think was previously possible (thanks #BBM_EXTREME!). The bottom line? You can't—and shouldn't—judge a woman's health by how she looks in a swimsuit or sports bra. Case closed. 💪🏻💦
I've receive dozens and dozens of questions from the BBM community inquiring how weaning Arwyn last month might have affected our bond and what tips I have for maintaining it! The answer to Part 1 is: It honestly hasn't effected anything because... Part 2: I make a point to still steal tons of snuggles and quiet time with her throughout the day! My biggest tip would be baby-wearing frequently, and also maintaining the same evening routine if possible.  I still lay with Arwyn and cuddle for 20 minutes prior to transferring her to her crib (both before her afternoon nap as well as at night), just minus the breastfeeding part. Arwyn hasn't struggled at all through the transition, and my own mom-guilt over WEANING her has been minimized with all of the extra contact and cuddles. Hope this helps anyone else who is going through the weaning process right now. 💪🏻💞 #MomsSupportingMoms
"If you love yourself first, you are going to attract the right kind of love into your life." — Rebel Wilson. No truer words have been spoken in my own life when it comes to relationships and love. Feeling extra grateful for this man of mine, and for all the lessons I had to learn in order to arrive in the proper place, space, and time in my life to receive his love. 💞 #TheWayHeLovesMeIsntNormal . . .

Proud of you. You follow your dreams and it inspires me to follow mine. Thank you for being my wife, and for making me a better man. I love you. @bikinibodymommy
She has no idea what this device is, and my goal as her mother is to keep it that way. She will never witness me using it, and when the day comes where she asks what it is and what it does, I will make sure to tell her everything it DOESEN'T. She will know that the number on that scale will never measure what a great person she is. It won't measure how amazing, beautiful, strong, smart, kind, and funny she is. It won't measure how much her friends & family love and adore her. It won't measure her happiness or success in life, and above all... it will never measure her own self-worth! 💪🏻💞 #RaisingStrongGirls
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: As women, our bodies as are designed to change, evolve, and reflect the various stages of our life. Sometimes they shrink, sometimes they grow, Sometimes they nurture life, and sometimes they sustain it. -- 2011: weight 204 pounds, 1 week postpartum with Finnley (Baby #3) • 2012: weight 105 pounds, 1 Year postpartum 👇🏻 100 Pounds • 2014: weight 125 pounds, DAY 90 of BBM2.0 • 2015: weight 211 pounds, Pregnant with Arwyn • 2016: weight 180 pounds, 1 Week postpartum with Arwyn (Baby #4) • 2017: weight 174 pounds, 1.5 years postpartum -- [HEIGHT UPDATE: I am only 5'3] -- Since weaning Arwyn 2 weeks ago I've begun to receive a lot of private messages about what my goals are now for MY BODY. Is my goal to get back to the body I had a year after having Finnley? Is it to get back to the body I had in 2014 after filming BBMC 2.0, before I got pregnant with Arwyn? Or am I happy with the thick curves and extra weight I'm still carrying since my pregnancy and just trying to maintain? Fair questions. I've decided my answer is too lengthy to post in writing so I'll be discussing it LIVE on FB at 10am PST on MONDAY (Sept. 18th)! -- Mark your calendars, and set an alarm on your phone now... I promise you won't regret it. ⏰#BikiniBodyMommy
