It's easy to feel poorly about one's body when constantly bombarded by images emphasizing an often unattainable physical ideal. This blog is my attempt to promote body positivity by providing a forum for celebrating a more diverse range of body types. No one should be made to feel less worthy of love or respect due to not meeting an arbitrary standard of beauty. If you agree, check out my blog!

"All my life I’ve been called fat, and for the most part of my life, I didn’t like my body. The year I turned 23, I decided to tune out the bullshit noise from other people and my own self-doubt. My weight always fluctuates, and so I was never comfortable with how I looked. I was always chubby. And I’ll probably always will be. I decided I didn’t want to waste any more time not being happy with myself. Even when I had lost about 30lbs like 2 years ago, I was still not comfortable with my body. Because I still didn’t have a flat stomach. I look back at those pictures now and I’m like "I looked pretty f-ckin great." That moment in itself taught me a lesson: I will love & appreciate my body. It is beautiful. It’s the one I’ve been given, and I am so lucky. I am able to walk with it, dance with it, and exercise with it. I feel good after a workout, but there will be days that I don’t workout and that’s just fine. The skinny girls and boys who can’t gain weight are just fine. How we look is part of what makes us unique and we are so lucky! We should embrace that. Now, there will be days where you or I am down on myself, but we must always keep that inner-goddess voice in the back of our minds. Before anyone else can reassure you, or validate you, or call you pretty, or love you, we must do all of that for ourselves first."
