Hey beautiful/handsome! Hope you are doing well. Has your January been treating you well?
I want to talk about this picture that you are about to see!
Yes, that is me and my belly! Yes, I am very fat. I have rolls, dimples, curves, tons of stretchmarks, and so forth (I think you get the point). I think it is important to share this with you all because I used to hate myself and everything about my body and my belly.
I hated lifting my arm or stretching and my shirt lifting up exposing my belly or my love handles. I couldn’t stand the fact that someone saw my fat. I would cry because of how big I was. I cried because everyone made fun of my size. I cried because I hated myself.
As you can clearly see above, that I have the biggest smile on my face now. You know why? Because I love myself and my body. It is okay to be different and to have a different body than the nest person. It is okay to love yourself. It is okay to be you! There is nothing wrong with different.
I am proud of the woman that I have become. I have fought so hard to be happy and love myself and my body. January of 2017 I decided to take on the 365 photo challenge and post a picture of myself every single day (even if I am sick). Several days, I have posted a picture in my sports bra, or bralette exposing my belly.
I don’t care anymore if people get offended seeing my body and my fat. I post pictures like this to not show off my body, but rather to show others that it is possible to be big and love yourself. It is possible and acceptable to love the person that you are. You deserve respect no matter what your size is. It is possible to love yourself and your body.
Anything is possible with the right mindset and positive thoughts.
