The girl looking back at me in these pictures is not the girl I see every day when looking in the mirror, but in 2022, I’m learning to merge the two.
This was and still is my message…so I never considered that sharing this message now — a few sizes smaller — would alienate some of the people I’ve connected to the most. This was like a dagger to my heart — did my message ever truly matter? Or was I just another face wearing nice clothes? 💔
There’s this myth that plus size bodies shouldn’t wear bright colors, as it brings unnecessary attention to our bodies. I definitely fell victim to this way of thinking, that I am big enough, I don’t need any added attention. However, I’ve learned that this couldn’t be any further from the truth!
It’s that time of the year again — Valentine’s Day! This year, I’m doing things a little differently. I am celebrating Valentine’s Day by showing myself some self-love, and joining Dia&Co’s #FullBodyLove Movement.
