I have not always struggled with my body image. I was a competitive cheerleader for 12 years from the time I was in elementary school up until the age of 18. I was always very fit, being 5’7 and a size 2. When I turned 19 I seemed to plump up and gained 30 lbs. It took me a long time to finally accept the way I look now and love my curves. I am woman, hear me roar! <3

I never thought I could wear a bodysuit, because I thought it would be unflattering and show off everything I try to hide. Thanks to this site and the many curvy women out there who inspire me, I&#8217;ve decided to wear whatever I like.

It also doesn&#8217;t hurt that I feel fantastic in it! :)

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who ate almost nothing. As a result, she weighed almost nothing. Then one day this wisp of a girl realized that to continue to live her life with such utter lack of strength and stamina was to waste it. So she threw out her itty-bitty clothes, donned a pair of stretchy pants, and made herself a batch of sticky sweet cinnamon buns.
In time, and with a lot of love and patience, she grew into a hopeful and happy, size twelve version of herself.
MEASUREMENTS: waist 31&#8221;, bust 39&#8221; (32G), hips 42&#8221;, height 6&#8217;
I wanted to submit these silly photographs to thank my darling boyfriend, supportive mother, the YourEatopia forum community, Gwyneth Olwyn, Matt Stone, and this tumblr, for helping me realize that calories and curves are awesome, and for guiding me on my journey towards better self-compassion. I&#8217;m relieved not to have to obsess over what I eat anymore, and excited about what the future might hold. *big hugs*

Hi there :) I had a good body-image day today so I thought I&#8217;d take a picture and submit it here. I&#8217;m 5&#8217;7 and about 165lbs (I don&#8217;t know exactly, I don&#8217;t weigh myself anymore). My measurements are 35-31-42.

 It took me years to accept being not what many consider an ideal body shape, being surrounded constantly with this ideology of what is &#8216;beautiful&#8217;. Now that I&#8217;m 30 , I love who I&#8217;am and the woman I&#8217;ve become and I wouldn&#8217;t change a thing about me.

This was about two years back. A friend needed a model, and obviously I excitedly volunteered. Even though I&#8217;ve never been a thin girl, I&#8217;ve always been into looking at myself and having my picture taken. And I hope all of you feel the same way because you&#8217;re all beautiful too. Sometimes I want to be a little thinner. I want to be healthy inside and out. But for now I&#8217;m at where I&#8217;m at, and I learn to fucking love it! 38-31-42, 170&#160;lb, 5&#8217;7, 22-years-old. @missleigh_
