Curve Appeal
18 years 5’3.5 155lbs 37-31-42. Today was the first day I decided to appreciate my beautiful body. I struggled with anorexia all throughout high school and dropped to 110lbs last year due to over exercising and eating less than 300cals a day. I looked horrible and sickly and I HATED MY BODY EVEN MORE!! I realized that my weight would never define my happiness and I made the decision to become healthy again. Most people would think gaining an extra 45lbs means failure, but to me 45lbs means living a healthy life. I gave myself the best gift I could ever receive- a second chance at loving myself.

After many years of hating myself and trying to shrink down to nothing, which led to years of eating disorders and struggling, I can finally consider myself recovered. And the crazy thing is, I actually LOVE the way I look now!! I’m still getting used to it, since I have gained a LOT of weight, and while my thighs may rub and have lumps and stretch marks, I actually can look in the mirror and not hate myself. I’m just so proud of who I’ve become, and all I’ve overcome, that I could never hate my body again. I mean, it’s my one and only body! Who cares if its not perfect by societal standards? It’s perfect for me.

My name is Tessa, and I’ve had body image issues for as long as I can remember. I’ve never really felt comfortable in my own skin, and I finally decided to change that. More and more I’m realizing happiness and beauty isn’t achieved by being skinny or being this or that. Its about accepting yourself, there is only one you and why not flaunt it? If I have enough confidence to chop all my hair off and dye it blue, (currently pink) so why can’t I wear a bikini? Hating yourself doesn’t help anything, and confidence looks good on everyone. And honestly, if the worst thing someone can say about me is I’m big, then I’m doing pretty damn good.

This is my first ever submission and I am still very surprised at myself for even attempting to. I have always struggled to accept myself, always thinking i’m not good enough. And honestly, it’s an ongoing struggle but there are days that I feel i’m content with who I am and how I look. And that gives me hope that those days will lead me to love myself more.
