Kayla Itsines is one of the most influential people in the modern fitness world, inspiring people everywhere with her BBG (Bikini Body Guide) program. She's frequently posting transformation photos of successful BBG stories, boasting self-love and body positivity, and recently, she opened up about her own body in an honest post about stretch marks.
"This one is for the ladies asking me if I have stretch marks anywhere, yes I sure do." she captioned the photo above. "And if any of my friends or family are on here you know how much I love them!! I am a woman, and I am proud to be one and have these marks!"
Not only is Kayla incredibly motivational to people at all different points in their fitness journeys, but what makes her so awesome is that she's not afraid to get real about her own body.
"Some of us wont have any at all, some will have them just like me, and others will be completely different," she said about stretch marks. "We all have them, mine are on the sides of my legs.... for now 😝 I'm sure when I decide to have some babies, I'll get some more — but hey, #thisisme! My beautiful bubba will be so much more important than a few lines on my bod!"
Kayla's photo has inspired her millions of followers to embrace their own stretch marks, and it's also starting a conversation about body positivity. The comments section is filled with people thanking her for being so real and even sharing their thoughts on their own stretch marks.
"Love you for this," one user wrote. Another wrote, "Can I just say this is so inspiring and non superficial which is refreshing and gives the average girl some feeling of hope and happiness just by the normality of this!!!"
It's amazing to see this side to Kayla, who's not only inspiring people to be the best version of themselves, but teaching others what it means to love yourself.
