Pozitív testkép: plus size nők, akikről illene példát vennünk

Amíg legtöbben már közvetlenül az év elején legalább egy diétán túl vagyunk, kemény, vad edzésekre járunk az áhított bomba alakért, addig vannak nők, akik fogják, és bevállalják plus size-os testüket, ha kell, fürdőruhában is. Sőt, a nagyközönségnek is megmutatják magukat! Elgondolkodtató, és példaértékű!

Büszkén vállalják alakjukat azok a plus size nők, akik fürdőruhában pózolnak közösségi oldalainkon. Inspirálóak, és pozitív üzenetet hordoznak ezek a fotók, hiszen ők merik vállalni magukat még akkor is, ha van rajtuk pár kiló plusz. Edzések, diéták ide vagy oda, ezek a lányok roppant bevállalósak, gyönyörűek, és nem utolsósorban vagányok. 


Hey babes!! This is a repost of an important conversation I had with my daughter that subsequently reached over 18 million people. While it has been an amazing learning tool for adults – I have chosen to use this moment as an opportunity to create a body confidence children’s book. ⭐️⭐️I am seeking an illustrator for the book that has a passion for BoPo and spreading the message of self love to children. ⭐️⭐️ This is a low budget self-published passion project, trying to do my very best with limited resources! I am looking for fun, colorful and whimsy, not too lifelike, more of a cute cartoon character that’s sweet and charismatic. I would love it to be a young woman that is really fun to work for possible future collaborations as well. If you’re interesting in submitting a sample to be considered as the illustrator for the project please send portfolio of a visual illustration of my daughter and I, like in this photo, using the contact button in my profile along w a short bio! The premise of the story line is based on this conversation: ❣️IT MATTERS HOW WE TALK TO OUR DAUGHTERS ABOUT OUR BODIES! ❣️ Today while I was laying at the pool with my daughter: Her: “Why is your tummy big mama?” Me: “What do you mean baby?” Her: “These lines, mama.” (Pointing to stretch marks on my tummy) Me: “oh those are my stretch marks!” Her: “Where do they come from?” Me: “well when I was a little older than you, I got some stripes when I grew really fast! And some of these stripes are from when I had you growing in my tummy” Her: looking inquisitively Me: “They are shiny and sparkly, aren’t they pretty?” Her: “yes, I like this one the best, it’s so glittery. When can I get some?” Me: “oh you will get your glitter stripes when you get a little bit older baby!” They are listening. They are asking. And it is up to YOU to help them shape how they will feel about these things! Will you continue the shame that society has placed on you? Or will you teach her a new way of love? I choose love ???????????? Just do you Xoxo Allie

THIS WAS NOT BRAVE. I’ve been told how brave I am for not having a coverup, but going with out a wrap would only take bravery if I cared what others thought of me, but I don’t. I spend my time worrying about things I CAN control and this day, I was only thinking about how fab I felt and how much sun I was catching ☀️???? Things that DO take bravery? A family battling tragic illness, a mother trying to beat addiction, a person trying to break free of domestic violence, reaching out for help when you have already planned your suicide and feel like you can’t breath one more day. THAT is brave. Not wearing a swimsuit at the beach. LIVE life and only worry about what really matters ????. EDIT // can’t believe the support and attention brought to this and thank you from bottom of my heart in helping spread the message to be human shouldn’t be brave and to say so diminishes your value and theirs. Join in by sharing your picture with #thisisntbrave. And thank you fellow curvy pioneer @themarcyminute for taking this pic! ????And keep up with my body diversity mission as I take over as Creative Director of Cool Gal Blue…full deets on my blog ❤️.

I’m fat and my boyfriend is white. Get over it. There are far worse things happening on this planet. This constant conversation about health is absurd. What does that have to do with my swimsuit? What does it have to do with how my boyfriend loves me? Absolutely nothing. You look at pictures of me and assume that sit around eating and doing nothing. That’s untrue. But what if I did? It is none of your business. The thought of a happy fat person bothers so many people. And it’s stupid. I had an eating disorder for many years. I ruined my stomach trying to lose weight. And I lost weight. I was still plus size. People still called me fat. And the people who DID say I “looked amazing” had no idea that I was fainting from being hungry. That I would go home and cry myself to sleep because I couldn’t take it anymore. That I wanted to die because I was so depressed. But I “looked amazing”. Yet inside I felt like trash. I was doing what people wanted. I lost weight and lost myself. I will NEVER go back to that. I love myself so much now. I fought really hard to become the Sabrina you see today. I’m not the ideal standard of beauty. And I will never be. And I don’t ever want to be. I’m my own kind of beautiful. And screw you if you have an issue with my happiness. I lost a lot of time living for others. That I can’t get back. But I can keep living for ME. Please live. Please fight. DO YOU!!! #findyouraddison #confidencetakestime #iamwhatsunderneath #bigandblunt
