All sizes are beautiful! Don't be ashamed of your number or keep it from living your life and doing what you love. There is no perfect or wrong size. It doesn't determine our worth and nobody has the right to judge someone's health by their size. So let's show the world that every size can be happy and that we are not ashamed!
How to participate:I would love to see all different sizes represented in this link up. Whether you are a 0 or 32, participate! This is a weekly feature so each link up will be open for one week. You can add your link anytime during the week. All genders, sexes and non-genders are welcome to join in. Use whatever sizing you are most familiar with. You can link up with me every week with a new post or join in every once in a while! The rules are simple. Post a photo of yourself on your blog, being stylish that week. Post a full body shot, so head to toe! State your size in your blog post or with a graphic on your photo. No diet talk, weight loss talk, negativity or any type of body shaming allowed. This is about being happy with your size and shape, not because it is socially acceptable, healthy or better than others. Then come back here and add your link using the link tool at the end of this post.
I get why people hide in baggy clothes or wear all black. It would be easier if I didn't have bright red hair, tattoos and a bigger body. I am sure people wouldn't stare as much and that I would get less annoying questions from strangers. I get it. I make a choice to look different and those are the consequences when you are out in public. I get over it because I love who I am and don't let others choose for me.

But wouldn't it be amazing if there wasn't this standard of beauty that we all feel pressured to live by? That a 300 pound woman could leave her house in shorts and whatever else the fuck she wanted to wear and didn't have to hear whispers and see people pointing in the corner of her eye. That I could walk up to a bar and get served first because I was the first one there and not last, because I didn't fit the bartender's ideal of beauty.
Being who I am has it's problems. Fortunately, they are not my problem. I am waiting for the world to catch up to this movement of self-love and acceptance. Until then, every time I leave the house or post my photo on the internet, I am making a statement and protesting. Each time you participate in this project, you are telling the world that it doesn't matter what size you are. We all deserve to be treated with respect and fairness.
