My name is Miharu C. and I have been hobby-modeling for about a year now in Seattle, WA.
- I used to be a varsity X-country runner in high school, and so was very fit and slim. However, I also struggled with eating-disorders during this time, and so was always a bit sickly - which - seemed contrary to the fact that I ran everyday and also competed in races. Because the eating-disorder put my body’s metabolism out of whack, eventually I developed a condition where I was very sensitive to blood-sugar levels, and was even hospitalized when I was 17 (the symptoms suggested a tumor). I was fine, but still coped with mood-swings. It wasn’t until I gained a bit more weight that my body started being able to “run on its own”, and not burn through so much glucose that I was left in a weird state of limbo when I wouldn’t eat for a while.
Anyway, currently, at 24, my body is at its “curviest”. I do not feel “dissatisfied” with my body, per se, but always want to strive for a move active and well-balanced lifestyle (for health’s sake). Living in America has been a change, since in my hometown of Tokyo, Japan, people walk everywhere, and the car-culture is not so developed. - So, recently, I have been more conscious of exercising bit by bit daily, and have also have been pondering what I have to do to be more self-actualized - which - I’m sure will then be reflected in my appearance, too.
I hope that you all strive to be your best, and “give back” to the world with your talents! Good luck! c:

As a plus size female, I am currently 240lbs. And finally happy with myself. After being bullied my entire life, I have never loved who I am, I have never loved who I looked like, I have never felt beautiful. Until now. What you see may be fat, chubby, chunky, obese. But I see beauty, no matter my size. I don’t let anyone define who I am anymore. And yes, I may be 240lbs. But I have nothing but to love to give. With a huge heart, and a great personality, my weight is nothing but a thing. c:

… a twist of fate has changed this 25 year olds life.
Elly was diagnosed with stage 3 low grade Serous Carcinoma. A very rare form that only appears in 5% of women diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Elly has had surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible and will be starting rounds of Chemo in September. Unfortunately, the form of cancer that she has is so rare, there is not a lot of statistics on what does and does not work against it.
Although, chemo is not very effective on this type of cancer and Elly wants to be able to explore alternative cancer therapies as well as the conventional ones.
Elly’s battle has just begun, and she is charging forward with strength, courage, grace and humour!
