Being fit and fine is the new black. Long gone are the stereotypes that black women are obese and more concerned with the state of their hair than their bodies and health. Daily, instagram is a testament to strong, vulnerable and triumphant women who have made the decision to share their fitness journies with the world for the sole intention to inspire, encourage and uplift their followers and women who have had the same struggles.
Sometimes motivation in the form of talking isn’t enough. Pictures are everything and these women are being courageous and baring all in attempt to help just one not give up on their journey. Forget that one these ladies are encouraging thousands and should be commended not just for their personal triumphs but for setting a standard and acting as unofficial trainers and cheerleaders for others.These women should not go unnoted for their contribution in the health movement that is moving black women to being fit and fine and healthy.
