I’ve gotten skinny once just because I thought it would make me feel better about myself and diminish all my insecurities, but no. You should accept your body through all its changes.. It’s SO IMPORTANT to love yourself!!! I am 5’1, don’t weigh myself ever… size 10 in pants :-)
This is me in Venice taken just last week! I miss it!
I wasn’t in shape when I started school( who is at 11?!) and a few boys teased me about it.
I watch the same boys drop their jaws as I strut by them at the gym pool! Be healthy, be confident xo

People just love to belittle people like us. Who does not feel hurt after such awful remarks about how we look like? But they miss one teensy bitsy thing about us. We are equally beautiful, regardless all shapes and sizes.Yes im thick skinned. I dont care who ever says im FAT. Cos im pretty! And no one can ever bring me down. As an Asian girl like me, I am known to be obese. But who cares? Im just here to tell you guys, chins up! We are all here for you! Never ever feel that you are alone. We are in this together. Lets show them how beautiful we are and how ugly our society is! ;)

We all have that one dress that makes us feel good. That makes us feel like we don’t need to pay attention to any of our perceived ”flaws” and rock it. For me I feel safe in something I love. Yes, I am a Star Wars geek. Yes, I have big thighs. Yes, I’m not skinny. But there’s nothing wrong with that. I’d like to add that there’s also nothing wrong with skinnier bodies by the way, we’re all awesome.

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:

19, 5ft4, UK size 12, about 165 last time I checked.
Trying on a bikini for a beach getaway soon… Half of my brain is saying, not bad, I/my body kinda looks like the, in my opinion, gorgeous Curvy Kate girls/models maybe! The other half says, gonna have to make a drastic change before being in public like this, and makes me want to hide away from myself nevermind anyone else. It’s a never ending battle!
