Welcome to day 2 of our #opentoselflove 5 day body image journey!

Today we are stepping outside our comfort zone even more with doing mirror work with you in our bathing suits. Coming from girls who suffered from body dysmorphia for majority of our lives this is huge. We are sharing it and doing it with you because we know first hand how powerful and life changing mirror work can be. We wanted to share some things and our story to inspire you to give it a try.

Doing Mirror work to see Your body with More Love

Mirror work is looking at oneself in a mirror and practicing positive self-talk and positive affirmations.

Yes you will feel silly and awkward at first when doing mirror work.

But.

Keep. Going!

Mirror work is a powerful tool to improve your self-love with your body.

Day 2 - MIRROR WORK. #opentoselflove Come join us in our bathing suits .Mirror work is looking at oneself in a mirror and practicing positive self-talk and positive affirmations. This video is to show briefly how we do mirror work for self-love and to show we are not perfect. We have scars, cellulite etc. and we discuss body dysmorphia. Just because we are "thin" doesn't mean we don't have body image issues. Click to watch how to do mirror work to improve self confidence and body love.

Looking back at old photos, we remember being so insecure in our bodies. Even with our obsessive “dieting” behaviors with restricting certain foods and cutting calories and working out like crazy to get “lean”, it didn’t matter. We still felt worthless and not enough. We thought achieving that body we so desperately wanted we would be happy, but that didn’t happen. We still found things in the mirror to pick on about our bodies. Something always to be fixed!

We would feel so much guilt and shame when looking at our bodies in the mirror. But now we are grateful for our bodies. We see strength, courage and determination.

Let us know how your mirror work goes! We know this is asking you a lot of you. You don’t have to show yourself in a bathing suit, but maybe show your face smiling in the mirror or just a picture of your mirror. Be sure to add the hashtags #opentoselflove #ptsisters @purelytwins so everyone can join in on the love and courage you are doing!
