Today I went shopping and found a gorgeous blush gold sequin top in a boutique that usually only has the smallest of sizes. I was thrilled that it actually fit and even more, that I actually liked the way it looked on my body. On the way home, a really attractive man flashed his beautiful smile, said ‘hi’, and sat down next to me, even though there were tons of empty seats around. Naturally, I froze and could barely manage an awkward ‘hello’. And even though this may have just been a courteous exchange, and I felt like Yancy in Sleepover, (I’m so mature) it totally made my day.
I hope that each one of you beautiful women have days as good as this.
This is me. It’s been almost 3 months since my wedding and I thought it was time for some new/non-wedding related photos. I took these and thought I’d submit them here, as I do often. I’m chubby and proud!!!

It’s hard to learn to love yourself. I have struggled my entire life to accept who I am, and though I had a brief time of clarity where I did love myself, I am in the darkness again. I am trying to be happy and I try to love myself, but it’s hard. Finding this blog at least makes me smile, and it’s good to see there are other girls out there like me, who have struggled with their image and size and succeeded.
I hope I am one day fortunate enough to be like the rest of you. I hope that one day, I can believe my friends and my family and even my wonderful boyfriend when they say, “You are not fat and worthless. You do not need to be thin to be loved. You are beautiful, and I will always love you.”
Working on my self confidence. I used to be a size 20 up until the end of my Senior year of High School. But there were people who loved me when I was a size 20, and there are people who will love all you girls. My girlfriend is like a size 2 and she loves me no matter what my pants size is. All of you girls are beautiful.
Sabrina, 19, 5’6/7”, Currently 180 pounds, I was 190 a month ago actually… I lost weight due to stress, and Im actually trying to put it back on because I dont think I look healthy otherwise! I am learning to love myself and my face and everything about me, though it gets hard sometimes. My only problem with my weight is that I really love certain styles that they never make in my size! (I also find it ridiculous I need to spend extra money on tees online because I need the next large up… sheesh. When will there be justice for the curvy girls!!!???) Anyway, youre all beautiful, and dont let anyone tell you otherwise!
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask - sorry if not! - but I was wondering if any of your lovely followers could recommend a good hairdresser in the Brighton area, who's reasonably priced, not going to object to my home-dyed purple hair, and body/fat positive? I've had issues before now with hairdressers giving me the haircut they think I should have to be "flattering", rather than the haircut I want, and it's so annoying!
At first I was going to complain about girls size 14 and under being posted on here because 14 is the average size in America, but then I realized what an idiot I can be. You can have a small frame and be chubby. Besides, girls of all sizes are beautiful.
