#BellyJelly: The Body Positive Trend We'll Put Our Running Shoes On For

A body-positive organisation is urging women to bare their #bellyjelly and embrace the power of their bodies


Whether you're a size 8 or size 18, every woman (and man) will be well-accustomed to the ritual of tucking their tops into their leggings at the gym before doing bicycle crunches, holding a towel against their tummy while shuffling towards the showers and placing a book in front of their stomach when someone snaps a picture of them on the sun loungers on holiday.

Why? Because, no matter what your size, everyone has insecurities about their bodies.


As a result, the Movemeant Foundation – a body-positive organisation which provides self-confidence building tools, resources and experiences to help women feel powerful in their skin – has launched a new video to show women how they can embrace their #BellyJelly – you know, the completely normal way your stomach jiggles when you move.

It's called the human body, people. We all have a bit of 'jelly', as Destiny's Child would say.



The #BellyJelly video sees a diverse range of women running, doing yoga, playing tennis, jumping in a pool, swinging kettle bells, dancing, playing football, all embracing their natural figures while getting fit.

If this isn't #fitinspo, we don't know what is.

Jenny Gaither, founder of the Movemeant Foundation says: 'There has never been a better time to shift the dialogue that women are having around their bodies.

Embracing our 'belly jelly' and celebrating that women are physically strong despite a little jiggle, is a powerful statement and, one we hope will inspire women and girls across the country.


So, if you're feeling a bit lethargic today, have reached for your sixth Quality Street (come on, it's basically Christmas, why not?) or just having a bit of an 'off' day, watch this video and boost your positivity because you, your body and all women are beautiful.
