This is a place of encouragement, a place to discuss body image, insecurities, self-esteem, and everything under the umbrella of fighting self-hate and finding self-love.

No matter what you look like, what color, what gender, sexual orientation, what size or however many "flaws", healthy, not healthy, working on it, abled, disabled, we are all human, we all deserve to be happy, we all deserve to love ourselves. With this blog you will see all kinds of REAL bodies, REAL people, REAL stories.

I’m 5’3” and 107 pounds. My weight has fluctuated significantly over the past year, but that doesn’t define who I am, so I’m not going to talk about that. I have scars but I’m proud of them.When I get stressed or upset about something, I can’t eat. I physically can’t swallow, or I throw up; this is part of the reason I’ve lost so much weight this year. I’ve experienced a lot of body hate from outside sources recently— people have been telling me that I’m too ____________ or not _________ enough. In the past I’ve done that to myself but really had no incentive to change. My incentive now is to prove them wrong. Their opinion doesn’t matter, they don’t live in this body, I do. My body is the ONE thing I have 100% complete control over and I’m not going to let anyone take that away from me.No one should define how you feel about yourself. If you never saw celebrities, magazines, ~photography~ on tumblr, only looked at yourself in the mirror, how would you feel about yourself? There wouldn’t be anything to compare yourself to. And there would be nothing to be but happy with it. Fight body hate!
BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
