hi, so this is me, i haven’t always got on with the way i have looked, years of up and downs, but now at 23, after having a beautiful baby girl, i am happy and confident.
i have to remember what i see in the mirror is not what every one else sees, mostly i need to just smile.
you can find me here - http://hereilayjustlikealways.tumblr.com/
i have a love hate relationship with this picture. i love my outfit, like that is my favorite hat, and im on stilts in this picture though you cant really tell, which is one of my favorite things to do. but the fat on my stomach always makes me hesitate when i go to show people it. and i hate that i dont like this photo, i should love it. its a gorgeous snapshot. but that fat is holding me back. but for some reason, that fat on my chest doesnt bother me. if all the fat on my stomach migrated up i wouldnt mind so much, which sucks.
Art has helped me accept my body more than anyone’s kind words. It’s always nice to hear those you love lifting you up, but for me acceptance of my body has been a journey.
One day in photography we were told to take a photo that displayed vulnerability. Of course I didn’t submit this one, but I took the idea and did it in my own time as well. It stood for everything that was me- the fire on the candles, the cleansing water.. and in the midst of reviewing the picture I realized that there is nothing wrong with me at all. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you either.
If you need anything, talk to me. I’m always here to help.
Take a photo. Smile. Look at how beautiful you are.
All my life my mom told me:”You fat and ugly, go in for sport, use diet’s”. Everyone called me the ugly creature. I had an awful childhood, almost nobody was on friendly with me. I was lonely because my body wasn’t attractive to other people. BUT! now it in the past. I suffered too long..soo it’s time to change everything! To change not my body but my mind.
Listen only to itself, listen only your heart.
This is my second post on here. Although a lot of my insecurities are still with me, I’m trying to overcome each one at a time!!
I can never wear what I feel like because I’ll always feel like my stomach is sticking out or my arms are too fat or my legs are disgusting. And I pretty much feel like everyone else is thinking that about me too or worse. When I last posted I felt great, right down deep in my stomach for the first time in a long time and the people who commented on my post and re blogged were so kind and it made me feel on top of the world!!
Thanks so much everyone!!
I never thought I would have the courage to actually talk about my body or how I feel about it to the world so what I am about to say/submit is probably something I never thought I could do. So here goes nothing.
First off, my name is Samantha, but most people call me Sam. All my life I struggled finding the right outfit or what looked “good” on me as I was growing up. I grew up just wearing t-shirts and basketball shorts. All my life people never actually called me mean names, but I could tell that they gave me strange look just by the way my appearance was. I was a tomboy growing up, but I think that was because I never really felt comfortable in cute girl clothes. I remember my mom always telling me, “you are built just like me there is nothing you can do about it.” I remember feeling really sad and I hated the way my body was. I hated that I couldn’t be like anyone else. I never felt comfortable, unless I was wearing baggy clothes. Of course the media never helped, but as I grew older and I got into my first relationship my Senior year of high school, I realized that my physical aspects of my body weren’t all that mattered. I started opening up and I wasn’t afraid to be myself. I became happy and I was confident in what I was wearing. I could wear anything and I felt good about myself. Granted, I knew other girls looked ten times more prettier than I did, but did I care? No. I learned to respect my body, and I learned to be myself. I realize now that nothing is perfect, but when someone treats all your flaws as if they are nothing, you soon realize that your body shape isn’t all what matters. I love my body, and I love showing it off. I am proud to say that, I love being fluffy :) more to love I always say!! :)
If you have any questions, please inbox me. I would love to hear and talk to you :) xox http://saameow.tumblr.com/
I am very insecure regarding my breasts. I developed early, age 9 and always had larger breasts than anyone I know. I’ve always been self concious of the size and the shape and I’ve always been bombarded with pictures of pert, perfectly rounded breasts. A lot of people say “oh but those pert perfect big breasts are fake!” Which has always made me think “Then why aren’t big natural breasts considered beautiful or sexy enough to be photographed? Is it because they don’t stay in the exact same place after you’ve taken your bra off? Is it because you get stretch marks on them because of their size?” Me sending in this photo is me trying to accept my breasts as beautiful despite being bombarded with images that they are not. I hope this helps people with similar breasts to me too! To see photos of big breasts which aren’t perfectly round and perfectly pert be considered beautiful and then feel that their breasts are beautiful too! Also just as a side note I do have a tummy and I think that is beautiful too!
I’ve finally started to love myself and my body. It’s been a long time, and I’m so glad that I can look in the mirror without wanting to change myself. It’s a huge milestone for me.
On the left is a picture I drew of how I see myself when I look down… I always thought I looked lumpy and chubby, But I came to realize it’s just an angle and I was being too hard on myself.
The picture on the right is how I look in the mirror. From that angle I think I look fabulous! the lumpy image is gone and I get a more complete picture of what I truly look like.
the point I’m trying to make is: Stop looking at yourself from bad angles! you’re always going to be your worst critic, and even though you see yourself one way that is not the way you truly are.
Hi. I’m Kristyn. I’m 20 and this is my second submission.
I am finally at the point in my life where I love the body I have. There’s no point in hating it or being ashamed for being fat. This is the body I have and I’m fine with it. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
Hello my name is beth, i got bullied for being too ‘skinny’ i have a naturally fast metabolism therefore i lose weight quite quickly and have never really needed to exercise to lose weight. I have always felt very self concious about my weight but as i have got older i came to terms with my weight and realized that all bodys are different shapes and sizes and none of them are the ‘perfect shape’. ‘skinny’ or ‘fat’ bodies are beautiful in their own way.
I’ve had body image issues as long as I can remember; I recall being called fat in preschool, and the pressing guilt of eating a cookie at age 5.
Shortly after puberty struck I stopped eating. A couple things were influencing this behavior; the shame of developing early and being bigger than my peers, and the fact that I did not want to develop into a women. I was a tomboy and all of my heroes at the time were bushy-bearded male scientists. It was hard for me to envision a life ahead as a woman, so I was stalling.
Luckily, my mom did not let this go on for too long and she got me eating again.
In college, things got a bit better as I encountered more diversity and female role models. My gender identity and body size still waxed and waned though. A lot of people in the queer community dismissed my anorexic behavior because I was trans. Instead of being seen as self-destructive, it was seen as brave and cool to be able to pull off an androgynous or masculine gender expression so well in my starved, breast-less body.
I have since learned that we can embrace our bodies while still expressing whatever gender we choose. I have a more feminine gender expression these days but I can still express masculinity even with curves!
I still have some guilt with eating sometimes too, but I never let it get in the way of health and always start my day with a big breakfast ;)
I love the SHYB blog and have taken the oath! I hope you will too, dear reader. My blog is Radical Body Positive. Like SHYB, I want to promote loving your body, however it may be <3

I was really wondering when a group like this would pop-up. Fot the past several years I’ve been cutting myself,comparing myself,and just not loving myself. It recently got worse this year. I know I’m not really ‘fat’,but I’ve never looked like everyone else. But I realise that I don’t need to. I look this way for a reason…I have big hips and big boobs..and I can say they’re awesome. I’m glad I found this page. I feel like I can start really enjoying who I am now <3
EATING DISORDER/SELF INJURY TRIGGER WARNING
This is me.
Off and on for the past 10 years I’ve had trouble with food. It started off when I was 15. I lost interest in food. I would eat once a day…which became eating once every other day. If there was something I needed to be at and I was expected to eat, I would get a smoothie on the way, instead of eating there. I never thought I was fat, I just didn’t want to eat. I wasn’t fat, either. I was actually incredibly thin when I started not eating, and I was well underweight by the time I moved into a house full of supportive people. Once I moved, I started eating all the time. It didn’t matter if I had just eaten, someone mentioned food and I was all over it. I gained 50+ pounds in the first six months after I moved. I hated myself and I punished myself with food for a long time. Within the last two years, though, I’ve started to learn to listen to my body. When I’m hungry, I eat. If I’ve just eaten, I don’t need to go out to Olive Garden with my friends. I’ve been slowly losing weight, which is cool, but much more importantly I’ve felt so much better. Probably better than I have in my life. I can do things. I’ve developed a love for hiking. I’ve learned to love myself, including my chubby tummy.
I’ve been planning to post this for a while and the reason I’m doing it now is because the last few weeks I’ve noticed that I haven’t really been eating as much…food isn’t interesting me. We had my favorite soup last night and I just didn’t want it. I cut myself for the first time in at least a year. I’ve had a lot of stress, a lot of horrible things happen this month, and this is me telling all of you that it is not going to win. I’m going to eat dinner tonight, even if I don’t want to. I’m going to get up tomorrow morning and make myself a smoothie for breakfast, even if I don’t want it. I’m going to win this.
Today i was really into drawing,.
and i didn’t know what to draw, i follow a lot of positive body blogs like this, and i thought why not.
Blogs like this have gotten me threw a lot, and made me more positive and im thankful for that.
so here’s some cute chubby girls,I’ve drawn.
everyone’s body is beautiful
And i wish that everyone could accept that.
I’ve had trouble loving my body and blogs like this really have helped me, knowing im not alone.
so thank you.
