#bodyconfidence where the hell does it come from? Some would say, it finds you. Others would say it comes at the point where you are solely happy with your body that your confidence shines through. Today we all strive for the perfect image but what happens if we stop for a moment and think what really is perfect? Change can’t happen until we accept ourselves.
I have been a plus size girl all my life, I’ve never accepted this fact because I had an image in my head of perfection that no one would accept me if I wasn’t a size 10. But I don’t know if you’ve gathered I’ve never ever been a size 10, my leg probably is but my body nope. And nor would my body ever look right being one Yet I’m accepted by those I know and love. So why did I feel my body is such an issue?
Yes I am wanting to lose weight but I still wouldn’t mind being plus size, I’m doing it more to get my health back to where it should be, to be fit and healthy not just ‘thin’. Confidence comes in all shapes and sizes, be proud of who you are don’t let others opinions get you down, ‘you should have bigger boobs’ ‘you should be smaller’. Fudge that. We shouldn’t be commenting it’s not our body!! Everyone not just women need to be so much more encouraging of each other Boost those around not shoot them down!! Every person I know is completely different and I love that. Yesterday we went to a spa day, and for the first time in a long time I tell you, I felt comfortable and confident in my own skin. I didn’t feel like I was being looked at or judged by anyone. was this because finally I’m accepting my body? I’m changing the way I look at myself, yes I have cellulite, lose skin, drippy boobs, large hips a double bum, scars, bruises and large feet. But that’s just me! It’s hard, I tell you and this might just be a one off but take your time, when someone compliments you try and accept it they’re certainly not bullshitting you! They’ll mean it. Think to yourself what have a got to lose, you want to lose weight do it, your happy don’t feel forced to. Encourage yourself, and confidence will come. You got this. You and your body have got a long road ahead. I believe in you, so you believe in yourself! 💕 at Ribby Hall Village - Spa Hotel
