Love yourself.

I have struggled my entire life with my self image. I am no size 0 but I am not "plus size". Atleast I don't consider myself to be plus size. According to clothing stores I am plus size and sometimes I am average. 

Today I put on a dress and I have a little bit of my belly showing. At first I wanted to take it off and not wear it. I was ashamed of how I looked. But then I got to thinking to my self. I love my self. I love my every curve that I have. It is what makes me...me! I put the dress on and I am wearing it right now. If skinny girls can wear the same outfit, I should be able to as well without being worried I am going to be judged.

I think you should be able to wear whatever you want no matter what size you are. I wear a size 13 in juniors in pants. I have been so ashamed and sad about the number as I am normally a 9-11. I have come to realize that before anyone else can love you and not judge you, you have to be able to do it yourself. I would love to be a size 5-6 and have a flat stomach. I know I have to work out and do that myself. I do run, I walk a mile every day. I participate in 5ks and stuff. I have learned though to accept who I am with all my flaws and imperfections. 

I am in no way perfect. No one is. I am just happy and proud of my self and my body. I have curves and a stomach. If you don't like it, keep it to yourself. I am proud of who I am!

  1. You go, girl! So glad you kept the dress on to wear for the day! It's so easy to get caught up in what society tells us is beautiful instead of being okay loving yourself the way you are. Love, love, love! :)

  2. Love this! You are awesome! I'm sure you totally rocked that belly baring dress too! Go you! There is a lot of pressure to look and feel a certain way nowadays, so it's refreshing when someone refuses to conform.

  4. Aw I love this, you rock!! I'll never be a size 0 either and it's taken me a long time to appreciate my body. Especially after having kids, but that's a whole other thing. ;)

  5. It's great that you can take a realistic look at yourself and still love yourself for who you are. I am someone who used to be very athletic and skinny and could eat anything and never gain an ounce... Well the eating habit has stayed but the fitness level has dies off a bit. It's all about balance and accepting things for what they are. I rather be happy and at an active level that I want to be and not starve myself of the things I love to eat!
