Hi everyone! My name is Jaclyn, I’m 18, almost 19 and this is my first submission. Some people call me chubby, some call me average, some call me curvy, and some call me fat. I was teased for years about the way I looked, and it pretty much destroyed any chance of me every having a positive view of myself, even after losing weight. I put myself down more than anyone else ever did; my breasts are too big, my butt sticks out too far, my legs are too thick, my hips are too wide, my stomach is too chubby, blah blah blah. I’m starting to realize that being overweight isn’t all there is to me. I’ve got a nice personality, a great sense of humor, plenty of awesome friends, and people who think I’m perfect the way I am. I think it’s time for me to stop letting negativity bring me down. I’d be so much happier if I just stopped caring about what hateful people think.
Yeah, I still don’t like my body all that much, but I’m learning to accept that this is who I am. Could I lose some weight? Sure. But do I have to in order to be beautiful? Absolutely not. I see so much confidence in all the girls who submit, and I think it’s really great. If you ever feel like you’re not good enough, or you feel like you look terrible, always remember this, no matter what you look like, there is always someone out there who will think you’re the most beautiful person in the world. The people who live their lives only to hurt others just aren’t worth it, and I think it’s time we stop hating ourselves because of them.

So I was called out before, vaguely, for sending in photos where I wasn’t wearing clothes.
So ok, ok, here I am in clothes, ‘k? Sort of, anyway.
I’m 27, from SF and London- high femme, high passion, and reasonably high maintenance. I’m also 250lb of curvy chubby queer sex, something I’m pretty proud of. I didn’t always love my body, and I have my moments of being frustrated at shopping for sexy lingerie that fits me properly- but I have learned to adapt and prevail to keep my fat fashion fierce. It isn’t easy, but then, what the hell is?
Chubby is hot, ok? Because confidence is hot.

Sup girls! This is my second submission, my name’s Jo. Yep, that’s me, like a year ago or something. I’ve always been…well, a bit too proud of who or what I am. I’m fabulous…even those days when my hair is dirty and ugly looking and needs to be seriously ironed or whatever, even when society decides to slap my face with critics because I don’t fit on their oppressive size 0. Over all, I’m Jo, the girl who doesn’t give a flying fuck about what those who doesn’t accept my concept of beauty think.
My concept of beauty? Beauty is waking up in the morning with a smile, looking at yourself in the mirror and accept those flaws that makes you flawless and perfect. Beauty is accepting those stretch marks, the cellulite, the size 18, and turning them into even more beauty, into self respect, into self love. Yeah, I wasn’t always like this. I went through the I-wanna-be-as-skinny-as-Kate-Moss process…until my middle finger raised to the face of society and slapped their beauty regime to start a revolution, an evolution, a battle of will and self acceptance I’m surely damn winning!
Que viva la revolución. Raise your fists and love yourself for who you are, not for what they want you to be.
Click on my face right there under the FYCG logo thingy if you wanna follow me. I’m always fighting for who I want to be, and I’ll be glad to accept more fighters in my army of self esteem like you all beautiful women <3
I don’t really care how silly I look. I was sending a kiss to my boyfriend via photobooth :) haha. This is my second submission, and I think it’s just incredible seeing everyone put themselves out there.
If you ever need someone to talk to, then I’m here for you. I can’t tell you how many days I question my body, and then I remember, “DAYUM GIRL, LOOK AT THAT NAKED BODY AND THOSE CURVES”.

(: im 17, 5foot3, and i weigh about 200 pounds. this picture describes my personalty perfectly. i want to love my body but its hard. this year when i went to purchase my prom dress the lady legit gasped when i said i needed a size 18. society really makes its hard for anyone different to love themselves.

Ello! My name is Rachel. 20 years old. 295 pounds. I have good days and bad days, but mostly I love myself. I sometimes feel like a hypocrite because I am constantly telling other people that they need to believe they are beautiful and sometimes I don’t believe it myself. But it is an ongoing process. I am more than my weight and I thing everyone should remember that. Follow if you want. iliketocolor585.tumblr.com.
Chelsea, 18 years old second submission! 5’4”, 190 and happy most days with myself :]
Remember ladies, it doesn’t matter what other people think of your body. It’s yours. If you can’t love your body how can you expect someone else to, so love yourself! You are beautiful no matter what size or shape. You are beautiful.
