    Striving For Something That Looks Beautiful

    Honestly, I'm not a fat girl. I know I'm not. I just wish society made curves (or just naturalism) look a bit more beautiful on a woman. The other day I was upset from a comment someone made about my thighs (all women go through things like that, right?), and so I turned the tv...

    Oh, But Curves Are Nice!

    I know that it's a big thing now, that everyone loves big girls and curvy women. I still wish I was skinny though. People don't realize how hard it is to carry around too much weight on two ankles that have had hairline fractures and bad knees with fluid in them. I'm heavier now...
