This, is an image that even weeks ago, I wouldn’t have dreamt of sending to a partner, let alone submitting to a blog online. I used to dislike the fact that gravity worked entirely against me and that I had rolls on my back so much that I’d not get changed around absolutely anyone and I’d make sure I thought nobody could see anything that resembled rolls or lumps and now, I’ve accepted entirely what my body looks like and I love it.
I hope other women of my size fall in love with their bodies as much as I have. And if anybody wants to see more of how in love with my body I really am, check.out my blog: jigglynudes.tumblr.com OR jigglybeth.tumblr.com and drop me a line if you want to talk :)

I was a bit apprehensive to submit this at first. But I figured ‘why not?’. I’m finally becoming comfortable and even starting to love my own body and I’ll be damned if I don’t start to show it. It’s been a long and difficult process to accept my self over these past few years but I’m glad I’m finally learning to. <3 BE BRAVE! JOIN THE BODY PEACE REVOLUTION!

So er I used to be underweight and extremely self conscious, but recently I&#8217;ve hit my goal and I&#8217;m gaining weight which is a really nice change for me. I never used to be able to go to the beach or out with friends in summer because I disliked my arms, but now I am really really confident. It&#8217;s a great thing to be able to say &#8220;I would rather my body than anyone else&#8217;s&#8221; so yeah, that&#8217;s me and my life pretty much right now :)

AM I SUPPOSED TO HATE MY BODY?

You, my good lady, made me cry with the ending. I have never seen something as rational and yet, personal, as this. It really made me think, pause, and analyze my own self-loathing and you’re so right. I’m wasting my precious time and I’ve damaged myself.

Why doesn’t this have more views? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about different things pertaining to myself, and one minute I’m okay with me and the next, I hate certain or all aspects of myself. In the shower this morning, I was thinking about my flabby arms and thunder thighs and I was like “Well, at least my stomach is kinda thin.” Then I thought, why do we have to pick bits and pieces of ourselves that we like in order to feel better about ourselves? Instead of shaming those certain features, why can’t we just love ourselves as a
whole? If we know we’ll never be perfect, then why do we critique ourselves and each other for not being perfect? It makes no sense. And this girl right here in this video is absolutely right. Why hate your body? What’s the point? If you have a problem with your weight, shape, or appearance, then maybe it’s not your body that you need to change, but instead, you need to change your way of thought/your self-concept. You are beautiful/handsome just the way you are. If you’re gonna change, change because you want to better yourself, not because of society’s crappy concept of beauty. You don’t need to starve yourself or workout, you just need to be happy. That’s all that matters.

Even if you want to change the way you look, why hate yourself today?

There are so many of you on the #shyb #stophatingyourbody tags and I am loving it! Keep them coming!! I would to see more people using the tags on Instagram and Twitter too!

Two years ago, I would not have been able to post this. Two years ago, I would have deleted this picture and then attempt to take a picture in a different, more flattering angle. Today, I post this picture, and a promise. I promise that I will stop standing in front of the mirror every day just to poke, pinch and scold myself for looking unacceptable. I promise to start treating my body like the beautiful temple it is, instead of constantly being ashamed of it. I promise to love myself. 
I love you guys. If anyone tells you that you are not beautiful, tell them to go bite rocks. Stay brutal.

My second submission because I thought of more to say&#8230;
I absolutely hate certain things about me. I hate my ears, because they stick out way too much and I think it&#8217;s unattractive. I cover them with my hair almost constantly. I have this one bottom tooth that isn&#8217;t in line with my other teeth, and it really bothers me. My bust is small. I break out really badly sometimes. My hair is frizzy and dry. I think my eyes are too small for my face. I have a fat roll when I sit down. My thighs rub together when I walk. I think my nose is weird.
But you know what? It&#8217;s who I am. My ears help me hear, and I&#8217;m thankful for that. My teeth allow me to eat, and I&#8217;m thankful for that. My bust doesn&#8217;t have to be big for me to be attractive. Acne can be covered, it&#8217;s a natural part of life, and it&#8217;ll go away eventually. My hair can be really pretty when I take proper care of it. My eyes are a lovely color (I think, anyway) and I can see perfectly. I&#8217;m pretty sure everyone has a bit of a roll when they sit. So what if I don&#8217;t have a thigh gap? And noses are just kind of weird in general ;P
Although there are aspects of myself that I wish were different, I&#8217;m starting to accept my body for what it is. I need to take the best care of it that I can, because it&#8217;s the only one I&#8217;ll ever have.

You're On Loudspeaker: Picture This

…I had to go on a complete media diet and surround myself with only body positive people and body positive messages. Tumblr is a minefield but follow the right accounts and you can find a whole community of people on the same self-love journey. Brave and beautiful people. I am insurmountably grateful to Annie who is behind http://stophatingyourbody.tumblr.com/ for all the good she has done, for herself, for me and for many, many others (maybe for you too)….

Chelsea Birkby (@chelseabirkby) gives SHYB a very lovely shout out in her blog post last week. Be sure to check it out!
