I was always overweight growing up, but at the same time always active. I was in every sport from soccer to gymnastics to ice skating to softball. I was teased yes, but it wasn’t til high school when it really got to me. Sadly, from a comment of a boy, I became bulimic. In 3 months I lost 60 lbs. It wasn’t long until my parents found out. It was hard but I got through it, now, 7 years later, I do still have urges and thoughts and feelings when nothing looks good and I wish I was smaller. But I always have to keep positive, I try to eat healthy and got into yoga. It something where you don’t have to be compared or judged, but rather be your personal best. We are all perfect the way and size we are. There is no one definition of what is beautiful, we are all it.

I used to take literally 50+ pictures of myself a day, trying to see if I “looked” like I gained weight. It controlled and was ruining my life. Then I became pregnant with my son. I had no choice but to gain the 40 lbs that I did, and so with that my obsession and fear of gaining weight was overcome. Looking at my son, I’ve realized beauty is more than what a person looks like. It’s who you are. What you do. My son sees me as the most awesome-est woman and person on the face of the planet..not because I can fit a size 10/12…but because I help him, love him, live for him. This photo was last week when I went on vacation. I look at it and think I don’t look horrible, but I do want to lose weight still. But not because I want to LOOK a certain way, but because I want to be healthier. It’s an amazing feeling to see yourself in photos and not want to kill yourself, hide in a closet, have anxiety attacks…but you think, yeah I’m making a weird face, but I’m freaking gorgeous and awesome.
Literally every person on this blog is so beautiful to me. This blog has changed my life, and when I’m feeling down I look at the gorgeous ladies on here and I feel so happy. Life is beautiful. Enjoy it now, not when you’re a certain size or weight.
healthy as hell.

I was bullied for half of my life and it’s taken me the rest of my life to come to terms with the idea I’m not “fat,” It’s difficult, i won’t lie, to not fall into becoming one of those bullies on the front line telling myself i am.I spent a good proportion of my time last year, trying to get the most ideal body, and struggling to accept that i was always going to carry extra weight. It wasn’t until i was hiking in Nepal, and was the fittest, maybe not the thinnest, but the first to the top. It made me realize my body has a purpose, its not an ornament.
