Hey there! My name is Lexi. I’m 21 years old and a whopping 5 foot 1 inches tall. I haven’t measured myself in awhile, because I need to kind of stay mentally strong, and measuring myself gets me into this compulsive habit, anyway, they’re probably around 34-29-36.
Like many of you lovelies, I have struggled with my weight since I was young. I remember being aware of it around…hmm, six years old? That is way too young to be worried about something so silly as weight. That’s like fretting about your eye colour. Once eighth grade hit I had had enough…I was miserable, and had gotten picked on by a few different people, and even though it wasn’t constant ridicule, it was enough for a sensitive sap like me to snap. So for about a year I tracked every calorie that I would take in, and then go on the treadmill at my parents’ place and just walk until all of those calories were gone (it had one of those readout things for the calories burned). Yeah, I lost some weight, but it didn’t last, and it couldn’t have. Earlier this year I had been really good at exercising and had started to get to a point where I was really beginning to like my body…then life threw me one of its many curve balls, and I got off my schedule…and gained back some weight. I know in my mind that I’m okay, but it’s hard to think that every day when I look in the mirror. Somedays I’ll just throw on whatever and just leave without looking because it can be too painful. But every day is a journey, and every day I get closer and closer to loving myself completely. I will get there, as every woman will that hasn’t already arrived there yet. Find those people in life that are encouraging and loving and that give you that stability that you need to get going, and just love. Love yourself. Your mind, your curves, you’re jiggly areas, your smile, and your heart.
Keep going strong. Don’t let anything tear you down. Nothing has that power unless you let it. <3

Just because I’m not a size two doesn’t mean I can’t love myself. I’m definitely working on it.
I’ve always been so conscious about my weight, from a young age it’s affected me. But I’m starting to learn to like my body, and one day maybe even love :) And it’s pages like this that give me confidence. I’m 5ft 3in and a size 14-16UK.
18 years old. 5 ft 4 1/2”, 140lbs, 36-28-41 and never been happier. :)

This is my 3rd submission I love this blog so much it makes feel comfortable with my body and all the girls on it are beautiful.
Im a few days form turning 20 and I feel great with myself but somehow I don’t understand why I have never had a boyfriend in my life; my mother says its because I’m “Fat”. I showed her my past submissions and show her the bother i accomplished and all she said if you were thinner you would have more notes.
im a size 12 US ,36D girl I’m proud of my curves no matter what anyone says.
5’ 6”, UK size 14. 37-30-41.
I used to hate my body and constantly tell myself my bum was too big and I was the wrong shape. Now I’ve realised that my body is fantastic. I’m squishy and I love it! :D
