be.come turns one! ll chelsea shares

In your initial email to be a model, you mentioned you were still building confidence in yourself and your body. How has that shifted in the last year? I think that this is one of those things that will consistently be a work in progress. I actually really relate to the idea of body neutrality as a way to think

What was your relationship like with the gym/fitness classes before be.come? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with gyms and fitness classes. Gyms, in general, are not for me, I have yet to find one where I feel comfortable enough to attend frequently. I prefer classes and yoga studios although some feel cold and impersonal so I’m always trying out

be.come turns one! ll liz shares

This past year, the be.come project has been on a journey of finding body neutrality. We think you’ve had a similar experience. Can you tell us a little bit about that? This year has actually been a bit insane for me and not to go too deep but for most of my 20’s I suffered from bulimia so dealing with

I remember walking down the hall of my elementary school and hearing, “are you a boy or a girl?” from a kid sitting in the hallway (in detention). I remember being a competitive swimmer in junior high and, after a swim meet, my gym teacher asking why I couldn’t manage to run a mile. I remember a classmate yelling at

I’ve been fighting with my body since always. I’ve felt a stranger to it, controlled by it, at war with it, betrayed by it, and at its mercy. This thing that was supposed to be my home, my space, did not feel like mine. It wasn’t how I saw me. And it wasn’t what I felt. When I was in

feeling proud ll sammie shares

In many ways, 2018 was a transformative year for me. After a handful of years that felt like dark times—loss, growth, grief on many levels—I started to like and love myself and my life again. It’s hard to identify the exact cause. I started being honest with myself about what I really want, I started giving my time to myself

I started be.coming January 1st of this year. I’m now 19 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby. With my first two pregnancies, I struggled so much with gaining weight and body image that I absolutely hated watching my body grow and change in the worst way. I had a very difficult time connecting my with babies while carrying them and

Yep. It’s here. The much-anticipated, long-awaited, is-it-ready-yet project has finally blossomed. I am proud to announce that the web experience is officially up, running, and stunning. The “Web experience” means you can now access the routines through your internet browser instead of just the app on your phone. This means you can finally enjoy be.come on a BIGGER SCREEN (such

my body: friend, not foe ll sankhya shares

My beautician has known me for quite some time now. In fact, she was the one who did my make up during my wedding, long before it was compulsory to tag the “make-up artist” on your Facebook and Instagram post and the wedding photographer charged an arm and a leg to give you that picture perfect wedding album. She has
