I hate when I gain 10 pounds for a role... and then remember I’m not even an actress 🤷🏽♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re invited to join my body positive party! To join the party, all you have to do is tell yourself “I love my _______. (insert body part here)” If you’re feeling extra brave, tell me in the comments what it is! I love my my shoulders and collarbones because they make me feel confident.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While we on the subject, let’s talk about what body positivity really is (this part of the conversation sparked by @hellofashionblog). For some reason, thicker girls, such as myself, have become the mouthpieces for the body positive movement. In my mind, it comes from the fact that for so long, women over a size 6 were looked over for movie roles, modeling gigs, and spokesperson positions. But let’s get something straight: body positivity isn’t about celebrating just the curvy women... body positivity is about celebrating every body. Everyone is invited! Every shape. Skinny, chubby, lanky, stocky— all body types are accepted in this movement. The key is that you love your body for what it is (because it’s the only one you’ve got)! Furthermore, body shaming others should not be happening, to anyone, of any size. You hear?!
