this photo is interesting to me…
on the left, I see the parts of myself that make me feel the most insecure, but on the right, I see the whole package.. and you know what, I need to remind myself more often - I am not my stomach, I am not my breasts; I am a healthy, strong young woman who happens to have a plush and full-figured body, and that is because I am lucky enough to enjoy the hell out of my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

This is my belly. Soft, squishy, chubby, and loveable. I might dislike my body sometimes, but that doesn’t stop me from learning how to love and embrace it every day. :] I used to invest so much time and energy into trying to be someone I’m not. I even lost a whole lot of weight before, but I realized it did not change who I was inside; if anything, I was more unhappy trying to fit into a beauty standard. Fuck that! I realize that beauty comes from the inside, from the heart and mind and soul, not from the body. It makes me happy to be able to submit a picture of myself baring my fat without feeling ashamed or embarrassed, just liberated. <3

You know how when you see someone with large breasts, at first glance your eyes are always drawn there instead of their face, in that split second before manners and years of social training kick in?
I’m like that, only it’s not my boobs people stare at, it’s my belly.
But as Harry Winston said: “People will stare; make it worth their while.”
For years, I was a typical downtrodden fatty—dressing myself only in dark colors, ‘flattering’ tops, with not a dress in my closet. I tried to hide myself in any way I could. And pictures from this angle? Absolutely forbidden.
I take up a lot of space, and I refuse to apologize for a single inch of it.

I am a sexy motherfucker and I’ve learned I don’t have to suck in. This is one of my favorite pictures that have ever been taken of me.
To Kyla- You’ve helped me so much in this process of body acceptance. I’m getting my first fatkini this year. :)
To everyone- Holy mother of god all of you are beautiful. I have tears in my eyes writing this because I’m so moved at the level of inspiration and acceptance on this website.

Fat From the Side: Michelle
This picture makes me so happy.
I had such a great time eating ice cream, riding the carousel, and staring at the sea with my beautiful friend Kyla.
I’m showing my arms. For so many years of my life I always covered my arms, I was always so ashamed of them and thought they were hideous.
Now, I think they’re just fine.
