A French website @aufeminin has written the nicest article about my Instafeed and how, as a 64 year old woman, I’m helping other women to be body confident and happy in their own skin

A French website @aufeminin has written the nicest article about my Instafeed and how, as a 64 year old woman, I'm helping other women to be body confident and happy in their own skin. .
I created my Instagram to inspire and help women of all ages to be body positive and non-judgemental or super-critical of themselves or others. .
And to see what we look like with no filters.. .
No one is perfect. But we can all be the best versions of ourselves wrinkles, warts and all- everything that makes each of us unique.
.
C'est flatteur de recevoir ces critiques. Merci.
And thank you to all my new French followers. .

.
Just great photographic direction and flattering lighting.

Thank you for all hundreds of likes for my last post

Thank you for all hundreds of likes for my last post.
I was not expecting so many.
.
If you saw this last bikini body post of mine please could you comment on the following: 
Did you like because..
I'm an older woman body-confident enough to wear a bikini?
Because I don't filter -what I post is the reality?
Because there were boobs!?
Because I looked ok?
Informative nutrition and lifestyle eating tips?
Because as a woman yourself I hopefully am inspiring you to be confident and not care what others say 
.
Please let me know your thoughts as I will adjust my posts accordingly.
.
Btw, This is my first home cooked lunch continuing on the same protein and good complex carbs eating regime.
Chicken breast pan sauteed in coconut oil.
Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.

Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini

Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini.

Whatever your bodyshape or size be confident in how you are naturally with no Insta filters.
.
Don't let people fat shame, body shame or make you feel bad about your body. .
We are all unique in our personalities, appearance and bodyshapes and that's what makes you special.
.
So although I had a 6lb weightloss after 7 nights @grayshottspa on the Health Regime it should not be about actual weight loss but more importantly about visceral body fat ( the fat that collects internally around your vital organs) which can lead to diabetes, heart disease and more.
.
So for an ongoing healthy lifestyle diet try to leave out:
Sugar 
Simple carbs ( all "white" foods such as bread, pastries, cakes, flour, potatoes, rice, pasta ) that turn into sugar
Fruits high in sugar ( grapes, bananas)
Fruit juices ( high in sugar even if fresh) 
Processed meats
Unhealthy processed cooking oils ( rapeseed, sunflower etc) 
Grains if you're sensitive to them
Milk
Low fat foods ( full fat best as our bodies need fat to feel fuller longer and to function well- especially the brain) .
.
Eat mainly :
( if you can)
Protein- organic eggs, poultry, grass fed beef, lamb, pork
Oily fish such as wild or organic salmon, herring, mackerel, tuna, sardines ( for Omega3) 
Organic leafy and colourful vegs, and a few root vegs.
Nuts and seeds ( non salted)
And full fat yoghurts ( Greek) and unpasteurised cheeses ( not if you're pregnant) 
And
Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut and Kefir. 
Good first press extra virgin Olive oil and coconut oil and good butter.
.
If you are Vegan or Vegetarian then obviously there is no meat or dairy but do check if your foods or dairy alternatives have high sugar content.

The tonal colour of your hair can lift and illuminate your face. 
Or can drain if wrong.
It's so important to make sure your blonde tones do work for you. 
It's not about how blonde you are. Creamy tones are best. Never brassy or yellow.
.
Today I'm wearing:
Snakeskin jeans this season.
Cashmere sweater #M&S last year
Studded trainers last year
Westie x bichon @misslucy_lou 9 years old! .
