HI!!! I love this blog, I look at it daily! It makes me feel good about my curves. I have always been so uncomfortable in my own skin and I recently started crossfit…and well I am obsessed. I LOVE how strong I have gotten and I am more focused on being healthy and strong. I LOVE MY CURVES now and my muscular thunder thighs!
I’ve struggled with my new “womanly” body for almost 10 years now. After always being the petite thinnest girl (98lbs at age 18) in the room, turning 19 and gaining lots of curves was a huge emotional challenge. Everyone made comments about my new body and though none were cruel they weren’t always positive. Now at 28 I’m finally learning to love the new me and own my curves!
5’3” 150lbs measurements 43-33-41 and a 34HH
~155 lbs, US size 10
In high school I was an avid athlete, but after my first varsity cross country season ended around age 16, disordered eating habits in combination with changes in my hormones caused me to gain ~30 pounds. I felt so uncomfortable with my body for so many years, my weight fluctuating up and down as I continued to struggle with disordered eating, and it wasn’t until I saw a therapist that I realized that my all-or-nothing mentality when it came to my body was unhealthy and unsustainable. I realized I didn’t need to exercise so intensively it led me to injury, or lay in bed at night with a rumbling stomach because my meager dinner left me hungry. I threw out my scale, I stopped being so hard on myself, and I’ve NEVER been happier.
I’ll never be the 120 pound girl I was when I was 15, but I’ve learned to love my “new” curvy body. I’m excited to wear a bikini on the beach for the first time in almost ten years! I’ve never felt stronger (emotionally or physically!). If anyone is struggling with disordered eating, I encourage you to see a therapist or counselor. It will change your life.

Sometimes I feel like a manatee squeezing into a clothes meant for a baby doll. And sometimes I feel like a beautiful feminine goddess. It’s ok to have these feelings.
I love the amount of uniquely beautiful human bodies on my dash because of this blog. It’s truly wonderful :)

Here’s my second submission ^_^
(PLEASE excuse my tired/no makeup face.)
Due to college and less time to work out, I gained some weight from the last time I submitted my post. But despite my weight gain, I’m trying my best to love my body and to become more comfortable in my skin. Therefore this post will be submitted to the part of my body that I am the most insecure with; my thighs. I’ve been teased about my thighs since elementary school and was even given the nickname “Thunder Thighs” by my family members (which would keep me up some nights, crying.) Though this isn’t a frontal view, you can clearly see that my thighs are quite big. Despite their size, I decided that instead of hiding in my corner of shame, I will flaunt what my mama gave me. I want to love my body 150%. And though I have bad days where I look in the mirror and wonder what’s wrong with my legs, I try my absolute best to keep a smile on my face. Thank you for the wonderful support from my last submission. You guys are all so beautiful inside and out. <3
Thank you so so so much once again. <3
Im 5’3 and 39-31-41, I would love to lose a few pounds as I am classed as overweight for my high and build but I guess you have just got to learn to love the skin you’re in because its the only one you’ve got

This was my holiday party dress. Floor length sparkles with a train. I was one of the only people in a dress like that, and everyone stared. It felt awesome.
After years of hating and shaming my body, I have learned to love every bump and curve. This photo is a picture of the first time I was able to wear a form fitting dress without feeling ashamed. A size two will never fit over these hips & I wouldn’t want it any other way.
