I follow some amazing positive body bloggers. I admire their courage and confidence. Then I get shot down for being a size 6 and blogging with no real insight into the struggles other women go through!
Now hang on honey!
Yes I’m petite
Size 6 /8
5 foot 2
Do you think I don’t have issues, how long have you got!
I’m pushing 40
Had 2 kids
I’ve got fake breast because I didn’t feel feminine or sexy or have confidence.
I had an eating disorder because what I saw in the mirror was not what I saw on social media.
I’ve deliberately skipped meals.
Not exercised to drop weight.
Spent hours in the gym on the leg press machine trying to grow a bigger ass.
Cut off my magnificent long red hair because it was connected to my identity and I didn’t like who people thought I was.
Worn clothes I’m not proud of.
Behaved in ways and done things I’m not proud of.
Just because I look like the perfect body you want, doesn’t mean I like it!
Why should I be 'sized shamed' by others, I’m genetically this size, and I own it!
