Here’s my body. Included is the lower half of my body that I am usually too ashamed to post because it’s where the majority of my weight falls.
I have been in recovery from anorexia for 22 months now.
Some people seem to think that my healthy body is not acceptable. But you know what? I am not going to starve myself again to get down to a lower weight just so that those people will approve. I’m not going to starve myself to fit into some kind of “petite woman” mould. I’m not naturally petite. I wish I was, so no one would judge me and I would feel more secure in my body, but I’m not, and I am never going to be. I am trying to learn to accept and embrace my curves, and those who can’t accept them can f@!$ off. This is what my natural, healthy body looks like and I’m not going to hide it or change it because I don’t fit some people’s idea of what an “ideal woman” should look like. Trying to live up to someone’s unrealistic expectations of how my body should be is not worth sacrificing my health and happiness for. I am curvy, and I am trying to learn to be proud of that.
Hello lovelies! I recently found this blog and bless everyone that has submitted and whatnot. You ladies are truly an inspiration and have made me feel so much better about my body.
Seventeen, size 9-12 depending, 5’3”, 170pounds.
Thank you again for helping me find peace and looking absolutely stunning doing it! (P.s. sorry for the bathroom selfie hah)
I’ve been following this blog for years and this is my first time submitting!
I’ve always struggled with my curves because I was very thin until middle school and since then I’ve always been told I am too big or need to lose weight. I love being curvy though :)
Size: 8/10 US
Bust: 40 (30FF)
The swimsuit is Freya!
Curves are for beach bunnies!
Today I decided I’m going to start being as kind to myself as I am to others…. and guess what… its working.
Screw everybody who ever told me I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, driven enough, or beautiful enough to make it in this world. I’m a kind soul, but I will no longer use that as an excuse to let others walk over me, nor will I continue to let myself use it as an excuse to hide under the covers for days on end, beating myself up for this shortcoming or that failure.
I am beautiful and kind and not taking anyone’s negativity anymore, not even my own.
Fuck eating disorders and body shaming and non-existent self worth and anxiety and depression and everything else I’ve let ruin my mornings, noons, and nights.
Hope you are all having a splendid evening and loving yourselves wholeheartedly. We’ve only got this one life… make it count. )
-I posted this on my blog today and got enough anonymous hate to irritate me, so I want to spread this even further!! Don’t let anybody ever, EVER, tell you you are worthless and that those around you are only around you because they can’t find someone better….
THE HATE NEEDS TO STOP.
So of course, you all are my first stop as I’ve posted here before.

I’m so happy there are websites like this to remind women to love their own beauty. There is beauty all around us. We’re constantly reminded of its presence — mainly, its presence in other women, other outfits, other bodies and rarely are we reminded to look at ourselves. Today, I feel like loving myself. I hope you all feel the same way.

I have spent years and years letting a poor body image stop me from living life to the fullest. This submission is a big step for me in claiming my life back. Who knows what’s next? I might even muster up the courage to wear this to the beach! I want to be happy and healthy and embrace all that is beautiful in this world. I’m still working on embracing myself, but I’ll get there!

I have been feeling really self-conscious about my weight, in particular my thighs and arms, recently. I would normally NEVER be brave enough to submit this, but after scrolling through page after page of this blog I’m already feeling more confident. There are so many confident, beautiful girls out there who happen to embrace their curves. I hope to be able to love myself as well soon. :)

After so many years I´ve learned to accept my body. When I was 16 I would have days in which I wouldn´t go out of my house because I just felt fat. Be brave, be mature. We are wonderful, pretty and healthy.
I am 22, 5´3 or 1.63

This picture was taken by a professional photographer. It´s not retouched. The session was a gift from my friends, that wanted to show me that my body is pretty and support me.
Thanks for keeping this tumblr alive :)
I’m LOVING what my body has become, and I’ll never stop wearing leggings ;)

All of you ladies are so incredibly beautiful. I see a few on here that have a similar body type as myself and it gives me hope that maybe I’m beautiful too! My whole life I’ve been around people obsessed with losing weight and being thin, including my mother. So when I grew up to find my extremely curvaceous body, I was picked on.. bullied.. and I felt horrible about myself. I could tell my mother looked down on me, and didn’t think I looked beautiful in certain things because of my body. And that hurt, because she is so petite and beautiful. It started at a young age, so I’ve been taught to look at myself and see fat. No beauty, just fat. And I’ve torn myself down for years. When I found this blog, my confidence started building. I have weeks where it’s really bad, and other times when I’m happy with myself. I want to make that time, all the time! So thanks to you guys, I’m on my way.
I’m 5 ft tall, 175 pounds! All awesome!
