I’m so sick of the word “flattering.” Dress for your shape? More like dress for yourSELF. <3

At the gym today, I had an epiphany:
I am made up of many things society devalues.
I am woman. I am black. I am a black woman.
I am big. My body is not made up of tiny, delicate bones.
My hair, is not blonde/brown. It isn’t glossy, shiny, or full of volume and bounce. It is thick, and hard to brush. It is coarse, and black.
I am made up of many things society devalues.

…and I am learning how to love them, each day.


You are priceless. You are brave. You are loved.

Hey guys! My name is Kimmy and I&#8217;ve struggled with my body image for a very long time. It&#8217;s a terrible feeling &amp; it&#8217;s a feeling I continue to battle. I love this blog, because it is so inspiring to see so many beautiful women and men embracing their bodies and loving themselves without hesitation. I recently read a quote by Oprah that summed up the importance of self-love, self confidence, self-worth, and self awareness:
“Step Away from the Mean Girls……and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others. This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you&#8217;re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.” 

This quote speaks to me on so many levels. I have stretch marks, I have cellulite on my thighs, my arms jiggle, my tummy rolls when I sit, and society tells me that all of this, somehow, makes me less desirable, less valuable, less beautiful, less of a person.
Although it is nice to want to be fit and be healthy and look pretty and wear nice clothes, it is NOT cool to put down other men or women because they don&#8217;t meet societies standards, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, it is not cool to put yourself down or buy into other people&#8217;s petty criticisms of your body. It&#8217;s YOUR body &amp; I think it&#8217;s time we all took control of our bodies and redefine &#8220;beauty&#8221;.

Hello beauties!
Well, this is me. After seeing all of you beautiful brave souls post your bodies for the world to see, I couldn&#8217;t help but feel inspired to do the same. It took me a long time to finally accept the body that I have and feel comfortable in it. But I honestly have you all to thank, I love the fat positive community and I&#8217;m so happy that I no longer have to feel alone.
If you&#8217;re curious, I got this bra and panties at Lane Bryant (on sale too, girrrl! Better snatch those bras up!)
If you would like to talk to me, I&#8217;m always looking for new friends..

So I have been through a LOT in the past few weeks. I had my wisdom teeth removed, which led to a whole bunch of complications and surgery on my neck.
This photo is from a few weeks before the surgery, showing off a skirt i had made for myself.
I used to really dislike my weight, I felt like the struggle to try and be smaller was a constant thing i HAD to do. I would go to the gym 3 days a week and push myself very hard. Before the surgery, I could run a mile without issue.
The situation I am in now after the surgery is not pretty. I will not go into detail but I do worry about scarring and such. 
What I have stopped worrying about is my weight, and the way I look. Goodness knows this whole ordeal has shown me that life is very short and unpredictable. I of course care about my health, but I can look in the mirror and say that i feel good about how my body looks. I feel positive about being who i am and expressing myself.
My recovery is taking longer than expected, but I am trying my best to be strong, and this realization of more self love than self struggle is enormously uplifting.
Believe me that life is about a whole lot more than the mirror, a whole lot more than focusing on ideals and fitting the square peg into the round slot. 
Be strong, if it takes a revelation from a tough experience like i&#8217;ve had, never give up!

I used to have eating disorder when I was 15. Then, I went to a Center that helped me a lot to survive and accepting myself and fight against my mental disease. 
I discovered Riot Grrrl, feminist and Body Positive blogs that helped me a lot too. Sometimes I cry because I don&#8217;t feel pretty or things like that, but I am on my way, trying my best for accepting me in all the ways I can. My body, my hair, my marks, my personality, my fears and the things I want for my future. The best thing we can do it accepting ourselfs just the way we are, because we are all that we have.
(Sorry for my English, I do my best!)
