I think this is the first time in my life I’ve been able to look at pictures of myself in a bathing suit and not have a thousand negative feelings about my body. In fact, I love these pictures. I look at them and I’m like ‘damn, I’m really cute and totally in love with myself!’ and I know I’ve been able to gain that confidence and change the way I see my own body, and all fat bodies by participating in the fatshion and fat acceptance community here on tumblr. It’s such a small thing…to take pictures and post them on the internet…yet it’s changed my life. So thanks to all the fatties who also post their pictures, who comment, like, reblog, share experiences and stories. We’re awesome!
Also, shout out to my sister who took pictures of me on the beach like she was the paparazzi.
My first outfit post! I’m trying to make my wardrobe be more than just “t-shirt and jeans because who cares”, so I bought a couple new tops and Capri jeans. This top is from Avenue (too bad the rhinestone detailing doesn’t come through in the photo), and the Capri jeans are from Lane Bryant.
