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.
Can you picture yourself being truly happy with your body? Fearlessly wearing the clothes you want. Not being afraid of people seeing you. Not worrying about this showing or that being photographed from the side. Not thinking "Why don't I look like her?". Is it possible to do this even when we are constantly being fed a message of self-hate?
It may seem challenging and impossible, but it can happen. After years of feeding the beast of self-loathing, I had to learn to start nurturing my love for myself. I started saying yes to being photographed, summer clothes, being touched, moving to the music and all the little things I avoided. I avoided living my life to the fullest because I saw my body as offensive. Even though I accepted it, I still hesitated to be fully happy. But with each yes, I became more empowered and self-confident and I can't quite believe how far I have come in such a short amount of time. Your journey can start today!
