" Freckles, cellulite, stretch-marks, acne, scars and wrinkles, your jeans size; these things do not measure your beauty. Your personality, determination, and confidence makes your beautiful. So nurture what you have, and simply let it glow! "
What is confidence? I’ve learned that it stems from within, it’s the belief that you ARE smart enough, pretty enough, good enough. It’s taken me years to build up the confidence in myself to love myself unconditionally & to see myself in a positive light regardless of my weight or size.
Like many girls,I’ve been depressed because I could not reach the “ideal” weight. No matter how much I worked out or how fit I was someone was always “advising” me to lose weight and I believed it. I see pictures of myself now from when I was younger and I feel sad because I know what I put myself through-the starving, unhealthy diets, the feelings of inadequacy, the self loathing.
It has been a long road but with the support of a loving husband & inspiration through an amazing & strong plus size community I’ve finally found happiness with my body,with myself and it feels AMAZING!
