Hi, my name is Jess, age 28. I’ve been recovering, on my own, from an eating disorder for over a year now (loosely following Minnie Maud). It wrecked my life for at least 5 or 6 years. It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but it’s been so worth it. Within the past year I’ve gained roughly 60ish lbs and over the past few months have tapered down a little. I don’t know my exact stats, but I’d guess to weigh around 185 lbs (5’8”) — wearing size 12-14. I’m finally in the awesome head space of liking the shape my body has taken on. I’m no longer preoccupied with my body, but living the life I wasted away for so long instead. I still have down days, but I stop and think of all the awesome shit my body can do for me. Through all of this, I’ve come to appreciate all shapes and sizes of the human body. They’re beautiful, and I’ll never abuse mine again the way I did for so long. ♡

Its taken a lot of hard work and positive thoughts to get me on the path to self love but I’m much closer now than I was even 4 months ago.
Ive never owned short shorts. The closest I would let myself go is just below the knee. I decided this was going to be the year I have more fun with myself and just let go of so much negative thinking.

After a lifetime of HORRIBLE self image issues, and having a baby 7 months ago…I’m realizing that I’m ok. That I am attractive. That I have the potential to be healthy. Even though only about 5% of my clothes fit me well.
Lucky me, I found a new swim top for $6!

Hi, my name is Goretti. I´m 18 years old and i´m from Mexico. I always had problems with my body, but lately I’ve understood that I don´t need to be size zero to be beautiful!
I´m size 12
After so many years I´ve learned to accept my body. When I was 16 I would have days in which I wouldn´t go out of my house because I just felt fat. Be brave, be mature. We are wonderful, pretty and healthy.
I am 22, 5´3 or 1.63
72 kg or 159 pounds
37/29/45 or 95/74/115
This picture was taken by a professional photographer. It´s not retouched. The session was a gift from my friends, that wanted to show me that my body is pretty and support me.
Thanks for keeping this tumblr alive :)
I was in my 4th and 5th weddings this past year and one of my biggest insecurities has always been the fear of being labeled as the “fat bridesmaid”
After a lot of thought (and more untagging of Facebook photos than I care to admit) I finally realized that it doesn’t matter. I am incredibly blessed to have someone who cares enough about me to include me in one of the most important days of their life. On such a beautiful day, they want to be with the people who make their lives beautiful and how can I take away from that? The day should be no less special because the dress isn’t perfect for my body type. I shouldn’t be insecure about how I look in the dress because bridesmaid sizing is literally the cruelest thing on the face of the Earth and I had to order 6 sizes bigger than my normal size.
I am loved. I am happy. And that is beautiful.
Size: US 18/20
I’m LOVING what my body has become, and I’ll never stop wearing leggings ;)
