By government standards I’m overweight and I’ve always felt too fat and as a result hadn’t been swimming for 4 years until this day and I felt fab (admittedly it was midnight and pitch black when we went to the beach but baby steps!).
I’ve never ever ever been comfortable with my body up until recently. Its a day by day process and the fact that this picture is been shown off to the world is a huge deal! Just learning to love my bottom the size of Brazil and all my wobbly bits.

I’m Kat. I am a 24 year old mother of 2 under 4 years old. I had never felt anything but disdain for my body until the birth of my second, my daughter, and then it was like a light went off and suddenly I was ok with how I looked. Thanks to my husband, that ok feeling grew into a feeling of appreciation for what it has done for us as a family.
Everyone on this site has battlescars, be they external and/or internal. We are all so beautiful and deserve to feel nothing but pride in ourselves!

Every now and again I get full of myself and have to take a picture. Its how i save these fleeting moments.
I’m finally getting comfortable wearing mini skirts and they’re pretty much part of my daily uniform now. :)

Valentine’s Day! Girl’s night out! (I’m the tall blonde)
You’re body is absolutely INCREDIBLE! Nurture it. Love it. Trust it.
My name is Kathryn and I’ve been a big girl my entire life. I stand at 6 feet tall and weigh about 200 pounds. I’ve always struggled with loving myself because of my size. In recent months I have gained much confidence and feel a lot more at peace with my body. I even tell friends that I am an Amazon and that I am a curvy babe. (:
I want everyone to love themselves. There are people out there who love you and there will always be someone that thinks you are sexy.
I’ve seen every doctor, therapist, taken every pill they’ve prescribed me, completed all the treatment, and read every “be happy” book but absolutely nothing measures up to the kind of elation you feel when you fall in love with yourself for the very first time. everything that’s viewed as unlovable or as a ‘problem area’ in the eyes of societal standards has made me fall head over heels in love with everything that i am.
i dream of a world where everyone can be utterly, hopelessly, completely, and undeniably in love with themselves.
Learning to love my body little by little everyday.
Thank you for this beautiful blog! It oozes confidence and happiness, and puts a smile on my face whenever I need help finding one! :)
