Hi, my name is Jess, age 28. I’ve been recovering, on my own, from an eating disorder for over a year now (loosely following Minnie Maud). It wrecked my life for at least 5 or 6 years. It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but it’s been so worth it. Within the past year I’ve gained roughly 60ish lbs and over the past few months have tapered down a little. I don’t know my exact stats, but I’d guess to weigh around 185 lbs (5’8”) — wearing size 12-14. I’m finally in the awesome head space of liking the shape my body has taken on. I’m no longer preoccupied with my body, but living the life I wasted away for so long instead. I still have down days, but I stop and think of all the awesome shit my body can do for me. Through all of this, I’ve come to appreciate all shapes and sizes of the human body. They’re beautiful, and I’ll never abuse mine again the way I did for so long. ♡
Trying on this dress with no makeup on a few days before wearing it to a wedding.

Seattle in spring is pretty much like everywhere else in fall - rain and dead stuff. :) At least I can keep wearing my jacket & leggings & sweater dresses! Hashtag silver lining.
I have always had issues with my body and have finally started becoming happy with how it looks and how I dress my shape!

I wanted to try and show the many facets of being curvy and living a happy and full life;ultimately, just being at PEACE with yourself. I struggled for years, but I’m finally at a good place mentally and physically. I work out, and am focusing on toning up some areas, but am no longer miserable with myself. I found the key was to not focus on the clothing in a smaller size, but on the clothing in the size that flatters my body. It sounds silly, I’m sure, but it changed everything. Don’t buy size to “motivate” or bribe yourself to fit into it, get the real deal!
I was also told that “California is no place for you, you’re not stick thin, you’re gonna be miserable!” and well, let’s just say they were wrong. I fit in just fine. :)
Weight: 196-200 (your weight fluctuates every day! never focus on that number!)

I’ve never been fully happy or confident with my body, but lately i’ve been feeling alot better and more comfortable to wear these sorts of clothes! I’ve decided to not care what other people have to say, even if they laugh at me and say ‘you’re not thin enough to wear a crop top’ I finally plucked up the courage to say and think ‘No matter what body shape you have, you’re entitled to wear whatever the fu** you want’ :-) Proud size 12-14.
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 finally getting comfortable wearing mini skirts and they’re pretty much part of my daily uniform now. :)
