We all have things to help “flatter” our bodies. We wear the right clothes, we stand a certain way, we suck in, we fake smile, we hide our bodies…
I had these pics taken at my biggest. A year ago I would have hidden these few pictures, hated the bumps. But now I just think FUCK THAT! Fuck flattering! This is my body, it is strong, it carries me and a little lump or bump does not make it any less attractive. So I am embracing these pictures and taking a stand. I am proud of my body and I will no longer beat myself up. Instead I will beat up those who body shame :)
If you’re not confident,
If you’re not accepting of your body,
If you’re scared to talk about needing help with body positivity,
I love you. I love your body and I’m so in love with the person you are.
If you need anything at all please let me know, I need you guys to start appreciating yourselves.
Ok, so i’m not trying to get you to pity me, but I felt the need to address this. I’m a size 0-2 (depends on the store), and I weigh less than 100 pounds. I eat what I want, exercise regularly, participate in PE, and my doctors say I am at a healthy weight for my height (i’m barely 5 feet). I constantly get called anorexic behind my back, when in reality I am very healthy. I eat veggies, fruit, protein, all that good stuff. But I also eat cakes, cookies, snickers, candies, ice cream, etc. And no, I do not throw it all up. It’s just the way I am, I was born with this body type. But something I’ve been noticing on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and in real life, is that when people are trying to defend and comfort someone more curvy, often times we just insult people who are slim. Sometimes that evolves into stereotyping people who are slim to be anorexic, ugly, and just disgusting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people with curves. I think everyone is beautiful, but this just pisses me off so much. I mean, I’m starting to feel bad about being slim! What I want everyone reading this to remember is that
- not all slim people have an eating disorder
- never insult another group of people to defend another
- except all body types
- there is such a thing as skinny shaming, and it needs to stop
