Owning every inch of my curves!
You know I was following the Love Your Body Day as well and I was eleated that 1. It existed and 2. Something to celebrate nationwide.
It is unfortunate that we at times fall victim to the labels or portryal of what beauty is, even as it changes with some type of mainstream trend. I, for one, am a bonifide “Thick Souls Sista” to all of my friends, clients, and loved ones. I for many years have battled to try to lose weight and in the long run, became frustrated with myself.
Once I embraced ALL of what I am working with, my esteem has risen, and has only benfitted me at work, within relationships, and with myself. Now, when I want to “Get Fit” I do it to ensure my HEALTH, not my pant size is in check. This road was not an easy one, but I am greatful that i welcomed it at a younger age, so now, as I work in retail, I can share body positive tips with my clients and friends!
