Allena. 19. US.
According to the US Standards for Body Mass Index, I qualify as “obese” because of my weight and height. My weight fluctuates between 170-180lbs and I’m only 5’4. I have an average diet (sometimes healthy, sometimes not) and go to the gym about twice a week. It’s crazy how something as arbitrary as a word can do so much emotional harm. I’ve finally realized that “obese” is just a word, and my size and weight are just numbers. I’ve completely come to terms with the proportions of my body and everyone else should too.
The media spends so much time telling us that we need to be perfect, while the other side of the battle is telling is to love ourselves 100% of the time no matter what. The truth is that despite coming to those positive terms, some days I feel like a 10, and other days I just want to hide from the world. I just want to say that I don’t feel guilty on the days when I dont feel 110%. Part of being human is loving yourself one day and picking yourself up off the floor the next. The trouble comes when that struggle begins to define everything about you. Remember that self esteem is more than loving how you look!

Hello :D my name is Crystal, I have had a hard time through my adolescence because family and people would always have something to say about my weight and I have a lot of self esteem problems from it but one day slowly but surely I’ll love myself as much as I wish other girls would love themselves. I’m 5’2 and my measurements are 38, 33, and 43 (holla for the big butt crew)

It took 18 long years of hating every inch of myself to get to the point I’m at now. I wish people could understand that no one can help you love yourself and your body besides YOU. Wake up every morning, look in the mirror and tell yourself you’re beautiful. Choose to stop believing what society thinks is perfect and know that you are. Love yourself, because it’s the best thing you can do to make yourself beautiful.
Oh, also, I’m 19 and an average of 150 pounds, which isn’t too much, but I’m a very measly 5’2”.
I love the way I look and so does my boyfriend. I’m happy!
Never have I been comfortable in a bikini bottom and that includes the one shown. I’m 18, 5’4” and learning, slowly, to love my body and all it’s flaws.
I weigh somewhere around 150lbs and my measurements are 39-32-42
For the longest time I felt absolutely terrible about my body, and couldn’t see anything about it worth loving or desiring or being proud of but thanks to a fortunate series of events, I have come to feel like the perfect venus and really, the thing is, regardless of your measurements or your weight or the way your bum looks or the swoop of your waist - you are a valuable human being with so many wonderful and beautiful things about you.
But yeah, here’s to being positively gorgeous and proud, which is something every single person should feel.
Vanessa, 19, from Scotland!

I would like to send my love and support for all the curvy girls out there! Everyone deserves to feel happy in their own skin. X
