NSFW 18+ Maybe? [No actual nudity unless you count sideboob]
I’ve always been insecure about the way I look in pictures. I nit-pick myself apart, suck in my stomach as much as I can, and make silly faces whenever I can so that I have a reason to be “unphotogenic.” But today, it was hot as hell in my unairconditioned apartment, I was feeling hella fine in my soft robe, and my makeup game was on point, so I grabbed my phone and snapped this badboy right here.
This is the first picture I’ve ever taken where I’m proud of how I look. I like my curves, and the angles of my face. I’m able to look at this picture and see myself as beautiful, and I think submitting this is a huge step for me on the road to self love.

I’ve been following this blog for a while now and I have been toying with the idea of submitting but now I have finally decided to do it. I’ve been struggling with weight issues since I was in my early teens and I was constantly picked on and I felt bad about the way I look. 
But now I’ve started to accept myself for the way I love and embrace my body. And so, recently I’ve started to accept myself for who I am and I am beginning to like my body. For the first time since I was a small child, I have worn a dress - and I wore it out in public, too, and I found myself not caring what people thought of me. I still have hang ups, but I’m wrapping my head around those and learning that my body is part of me and something I need to embrace and love. I treat my body well and I love every part of it because it’s what I deserve from myself. 
I am learning to be body positive now thanks to tumblr and the wonderful people on it. I am learning to embrace myself and realise that I don’t need to comply to societies “norms”. I am myself and I will learn to love every fault my body has whilst gradually changing bad habits.

It makes me laugh when people are just like “just lose weight and you’ll be happy with yourself”. My older sister lost 200+ pounds and still says that she finds problems with herself. While losing weight is a good thing, it’s not a solution. Happiness doesn’t sprout from a number on a scale.

For years I’ve wanted to be tanner, blonder, thinner, and I became obsessed! But trust me ladies, life is too short to be anything but yourself. No one will ever have the exact same sparkle you have. Stay positive. Love yourself!

TW: weight loss/gain, body image
My name is Megan. I am struggling with body issues because my weight is constantly yo-yoing. I feel ashamed whenever I gain weight. The photo on the right is from a few months ago when I was attending college. Seemingly similar to the photo on the left.. it is anything but that to me. Since then, I graduated, my dog died, and I ate my heart out on the daily. :c I am scared to weigh myself now. I don’t want to know how much I gained. I feel frustrated for eating poorly and late.. not staying on track of what is ‘healthy’ and important to me. I always forget one important niche of health… mental. Beating myself up over a few pounds gained is unhealthy. Weight fluctuation is perfectly NORMAL. My body is both healthy and beautiful… now and before! I am tired of swinging back and forth between self-love and hate depending on how much I weigh. All bodies are beautiful and worthy of love! :)

When I was growing up, I always envied those girls who could wear those short shorts in summer. I never thought I could be one of those girls. My thighs are thick and rub together and my cellulite is always on display. I remember one time, I was attending summer school. I had on long blue jeans, a long sleeved yellow shirt, and a short sleeved thick vest. I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin that I didn’t even want to let a single part of me be seen. The strangest thing was, as people were asking me “aren’t you hot?”, I felt the need to lie and say I wasn’t.
And, when I realized I actually lied to people about something as simple as clothing, I knew I had a problem. It was a long road to feel good about myself,and to be honest I still have those days where I look in the mirror and cry. And unfortunately, I still have those days were I self loathe enough to put a blade against my skin. My journey isn’t over yet, but I’m a hell of a lot better off then I was before..
So here’s to wearing shorts in the summer,it’s hard I know I’ve been there.Take the steps, you’re worth it.

I spent all my teenage years feeling insecure and having low self-esteem. At the end of 2013, I decided enough was enough and made it one of my resolutions for 2014 to wear less make-up and to work on my self-acceptance and self-esteem. I used to never leave the house without make-up and refused to let ANYONE see me without make-up. I used to shower in the evenings and afterwards, immediately apply foundation and powder, even if it was just before bed. I hated my face without make-up, absolutely despised it and couldn’t stand to see myself without make-up. At least with make-up on, I felt ‘presentable’. I felt extremely vulnerable without make-up and make-up was a mask for me. It’s been 6 months and I am still learning to love myself, but I have made progress. I still feel insecure without make-up sometimes, but I no longer feel ‘forced’ to wear make-up. I wear make-up to enhance my features, not to hide them. I have no problem with leaving the house without make-up and letting people see me. I am far from perfect and will never be one of those drop-dead gorgeous models or a girl that can have any guy she wants, but this is me and this is who I am. So here is a massive FUCK YOU to society for making me feel like I am not good enough!

For me it was a very insecure moment, when the summer came and I had to buy a swimsuit, because I didn’t have one. But despite that moment making me so nervous, I just looked in the mirror and realised it suits me well. I’ve been struggling for a lot of time, learning how to be in harmony with my own body, and at that moment it dawned on me that it was time to stop. I am happy to move on and I wish everyone happiness and peace with your own bodies. People here are just so beautiful and inspiring that it gives me strenght and hope.

TRIGGER WARNING: self harm
it makes me sad that society these days teaches us that to be ‘perfect’ and ‘real beauty’ you have to be a specific size. i say society should be promoting DIFFERENT body shapes, learning to love and accept our own body because we are all unique and different and beautiful. i used to hate my body, i have learnt to love it, i might not be society’s idea of beauty but i am MY OWN definition of beauty. no matter what size you are, whether you have any disorders/illnesses or non, YOU ARE PERFECT. self harm is also not a permanent solution to your problems, it doesn’t make it better, it makes it worse. i am sending out my love and support aswell as courage to those who are still battling any sort of disorder. i haven’t harmed for 7 months, if i can do it, then so can you. I HOPE YOU ALL STAY STRONG! <3
