Allena. 19. US.
According to the US Standards for Body Mass Index, I qualify as “obese” because of my weight and height. My weight fluctuates between 170-180lbs and I’m only 5’4. I have an average diet (sometimes healthy, sometimes not) and go to the gym about twice a week. It’s crazy how something as arbitrary as a word can do so much emotional harm. I’ve finally realized that “obese” is just a word, and my size and weight are just numbers. I’ve completely come to terms with the proportions of my body and everyone else should too.
The media spends so much time telling us that we need to be perfect, while the other side of the battle is telling is to love ourselves 100% of the time no matter what. The truth is that despite coming to those positive terms, some days I feel like a 10, and other days I just want to hide from the world. I just want to say that I don’t feel guilty on the days when I dont feel 110%. Part of being human is loving yourself one day and picking yourself up off the floor the next. The trouble comes when that struggle begins to define everything about you. Remember that self esteem is more than loving how you look!
Never have I been comfortable in a bikini bottom and that includes the one shown. I’m 18, 5’4” and learning, slowly, to love my body and all it’s flaws.
I weigh somewhere around 150lbs and my measurements are 39-32-42
Do You Know How It feels like…
When I was at the Club no one wants to dance or close to me. i know i have no physical appearance attractive and im not the average eye catcher. im not slim i can say im so fat compared with any asian girls in my country. do u know how it feels like? ;) But suddenly i think ”Ok, I might be fat but that doesn’t mean I’m not attractive! Don’t let it bother you. enjoy your night” Stay true to yourself and do what you want. Being real is effortless. Be what you want. Express yourself fully. Listen to your inner being. Stay true to yourself. Be Real. Sure, some people won’t like it. And others will. Thing is: there’s no reason to want everybody to like you. Do what you want and let whatever happens happen. Some people will love you. Others will hate you. That’s fine
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

This photo is from summer 2012, but I haven’t changed much body-wise. I often feel bad about my size and my body, especially when picking out an outfit to wear or trying on clothes in a store, but I’m getting better. I’m still young, and I have a lot of learning to do. I really want to thank my kind-hearted and loving boyfriend, who sees me as nothing but perfect and beautiful, and never hesitates to let me know.

5’7 tall… 34c, 34” waist, 44” hips.
fun fact: according to wikipedia, my waist is the same circumference as the average victoria’s secret model’s hips! i celebrated learning this fact with an ice cream sundae.
WE ARE ALL GORGEOUS. xoxo.
There are always so many beautiful girls on here and I always find myself wishing I looked more like them in some way. It is hard as a girl to just be happy with everything and the girls who do submit to this blog should know that they are brave and beautiful.
Loving my body more and more each day!
