    Love For Every Body

    I have long-struggled with my body and the way I look. I was depressed for years as a result of believing that I was ugly and too fat and not fit to be touched or loved. It was a miserable existence.Since then, thankfully, I have evolved. I don't know if it's a natural process of...

    I'm sick of all these fat stuff.

    My classmates call me fat, my parents call me fat, I feel like everyone is calling me fat, and I'm extremely insecure around people older AND younger than me because I'm always being called fat and I feel that I'm inferior because I'm fat :/ so yea I'm trying really hard to love...

    yes I'm part of the small girls club.

    no I'm not anorexic. I'm naturally small and I'm sick of others thinking its gross or unhealthy. I'm not perfect either. stop shaming people for their bodies.

    "Whatever you believe about yourself on the

    inside is what will you manifest on the outside." Remember it's YOUR choice in how you view yourself. Don't let anyone try and take that choice away from you! Make YOUR beliefs the best beliefs in the world! You are beautiful!

    And not just for those

    who are considered ~healthy~ or conventionally attractive. You can't just pick and choose which type of bodies, you can't just claim to be body positive and in the next breath shame certain kinds of bodies. That's ridiculous. I'm here for the fat, the obese, the girls with...

    I've come to a point in my life

    where I am tired of being downed for my size. I'm tired of feeling ashamed of my size. I'm tired of feeling bad about the way I look. I'm tired of dieting and exercising and starving myself because I hate the way I look. I'm done with that. I've come to realize that nothing...

    Today I heard how fat I am from someone

    who means a lot to me. When you hear those awful words and comments, it's hard to know that they can't accept you for you. I know I am super confident, but I am human and it hurts so bad. I cried, but then stopped and realized that I worked so hard that I wasn't going to let...

    Anorexia, Bulimia, Obesity

    Depression, mental health disorders, eating disorders. All because society puts a pressure on boys and girls to look a certain way. Is a too slim body more important than self esteem, health and a love for yourself? Is putting down people for not looking 'right' more important...

    100%. I wasn't always this way.

    For years I'd look at photos of girls smaller than me and pray to look like them. It was never easy being bulimic. But the reason I'd like to write today is because I want to share a story and I hope this will get a few reads and feedback. So, I recently put up a photo of...

    Why is it that people think they are being body

    positive by saying "oh Skinny bodies aren't sexy! and Thick and curvy should be praised more" when in reality they're doing the same thing? I just don't get that. all bodies are beautiful (including men's).

    Fitness is for everyone,

    of every shape, size and color. Fitness does not require anyone to look a certain way. It means different things to different people, and lands on the priority scale differently for everyone. And that's okay. http://www.buzzfeed.com/carolynkylstra/fixed-that-fitspo-for-ya

    BEING CHUNKY DOES NOT MAKE ME DISGUSTING,

    BEING RUDE TO ME BECAUSE OF MY SHAPE MAKES YOU DISGUSTING.

    it makes me so happy

    that body positivity is such a popular movement now. however, its a bit too focused on weight. all the other aspects of peoples bodies should be praised too. not everyone is "beautiful" in society's eyes, but that shouldnt matter ♡

    I am so tired of hearing women complain about

    there weight or how ugly they are! STOP! STOP! STOP! Why must you torture yourself by believing that about yourself? Enough is enough! You need to take charge of your life! Embrace what you have. Negativity won't get you anywhere. It breaks my heart to see or hear women in how...

    people need to stop attacking girls

    for posting pics of herself showing "too much" skin. if she is proud and comfortable with her body that is a good thing. we have too many girls developing self esteem and other body issues. "what would your parents think, you are attracting the wrong kind of attention!" how...

    I was at a party a couple nights ago.

    I love going to parties, I love meeting new people. But in doing so I'm also learning a lot about how body positivity is NOT something people endorse. I was standing in the backyard after winning beer pong and was watching the next game. Out of nowhere this cutie walks up and...

    ABOUT BODY SHAMING...

    Society is always trying to “help” bigger girls feel better about their body. Which is basically assuming that all girls with a curvier body shape feel bad about themselves. Why should they? Everyone has their insecurities, but why does the shape of someone’s body have to...
