I’ve submitted various times but I have shown my body only once. Today, after a year, I have decided to do it again. I am a bit heavier than I was when I took a picture of how my body looks in a bikini almost two years ago. I have stretch marks on my back and on my breasts. My chest has dark spots on it caused by heat and my thighs are big. I have fat rolls.
I’m slowly learning to accept my body a bit more and not dislike what I see when I look in the mirror.
I have not worn a bikini in public in a long time and hopefully, this spring break I will be able to.
