Lauren Conrad is starting a body revolution!

The 29-year-old fashion designer detailed her new mission in her monthly "Letter From Lauren," which she shared via her official website Monday morning. So, what inspired the former star of MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills to make a change?

"It's that time of the year again...swimsuit season. I make an effort to eat healthy and exercise all year round. But when summer hits and the layers of clothing come off, fitness becomes even more of a priority for me. So with that in mind, our June theme here on is going to be Shape Up. You can expect all the great fitness content you've come to know and love here on the site, including my...Bikini Boot Camp series," she said. "But, you'll also notice one key difference."

"When we've talked about getting in shape in the past, words like 'skinny,' 'slim' and 'thin' have often come up. Starting this month, we'll be banning any body shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like 'fit,' 'toned' and 'healthy.' We try to do this for the most part anyway, but now we're making it official!" Conrad said. "The word 'skinny' will now be reserved for skinny jeans."

Conrad said she had "a long talk" with her editorial team about being more conscientious. Moreover, she said they "want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale." "Every body is created differently," the former reality star wrote, "and healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes."

Throughout the month, Conrad promised readers that she will "be sharing some of the best ways to sweat," adding, "I hope you find it all inspiring!"

Last summer, in the midst of her annual Bikini Body Plan series, the California native shared these six tips for maintaining weight loss:

1. Remind yourself of how much you've accomplished.

2. Keep exercising regularly.

3. Always eat a healthy, balanced breakfast.

4. Ditch your old duds.

5. Identify your weight-gain triggers.

6. Reward yourself.

"The most important thing to remember is to be healthy, feel confident and stay motivated," she wrote at the time. "Your body is your temple. Treat it that way!"
