Victoria from Garden of Eden Designs & Lindsay from Scenic Glory have declared this week (June 1st through 8th) as Spread you Love week.
You can visit their posts on what they love about themselves, too!
When Victoria contacted me about being a part of this event, I was super excited.Spreading Love is something so very important especially when it comes to positive body image.
Too many people today want to fix things about themselves & it is important to remember that everyone is totally awesome
No. Matter. What.
I also want to share why I love myself
- I love my SIZE! -
I am a plus size chick, I will tell you! I used to be super self conscious about my weight & secretly diet with complete failure. I also didn't like to diet with other people because I knew I'd fail & they'd succeed as I ate yet another muffin.
Eventually I decided that instead of being negative about my body I had to be positive. I found a lot of plus size positive websites where fashionable plus size ladies showed off their curves.
A big part of my fashion sense comes from spending years with my body.
I used to see my weight as something I needed to overcome in order to be the person I wanted to be. Now I know, we can't hide behind the things that we see as our short comings because we won't be able to see the forest for the trees if you will.
I've resolved to adopt a healthier overall life style & this has lead to me better accepting my size as well!
I try to eat lots of fruits & veggies and over all healthy meals. I love all foods equally too & I am not a junk food person.
I realized that I can't change my body shape - I will never be teeny tiny - but I can be healthy.
I am so proud of my size now!
What do you love about yourself? What makes you special?
