Hello~ My name is Bree. I am 19 and a size 18. I weigh around 250 pounds, it fluctuates. The first picture is what my hair currently looks like (I cut it a few days ago). I am currently learning to love my body, but sometimes I have a very hard time doing this. Anywhoo. I love meeting new people and making friends. ^_^
My name is Emmie. 17, 5’7”, 183lbs. That’s the first time I’ve ever told anyone my weight. School has sucked this year and it’s been hard keeping up with my studies and also dealing with my own personal issues with my looks and weight. I’m trying my hardest to love myself like I know I should, but it’s really, really hard sometimes.
I wish with all of my heart for all of you beautiful people to find the hope you need to stay confident and happy.
I’ve struggled for a very long time to accept myself. Even now when I look in the mirror, I tend focus on all the “bad” parts and don’t even notice the good. It’s been better lately, though. It may have taken a while, but I’m finally starting to realize that A) I’m not as big as I seem to think I am, and B) even if I was, I’d still be sexy. It’s all about the confidence.
I’m 21. From California. I felt pretty today for once. I’ve felt dead for over a month now over some douche bag who didn’t know how to appreciate me. I’m not going to ever let a man put me down again. I know there is someone out there that will love “all” of me! I’m getting back out there. I got such positive feedback from all you women. I am trying really hard to re-love myself. Chubby Girls Rule! :).
Hey! I have a HUGE problem with finding skinny jeans that fit me properly. Does anyone know of any reasonably prices skinny jeans that will actually fit me? (I always have a problem finding ones big enough in the waist/butt area that don't get really loose around the ankles.) Thanks!
hey! i’m charlotte, and i’m the south east of england. 18, 6’3 and a size 22/24. clothes shopping is always a challenge as you can tell but somehow i manage it. i love history, reading, hardcore music and painting doctor references on my nails. i love talking to new people too, so don’t be shy!
Hey! I'm going to visit my family in Texas in the middle of Summer this year, and I'm worried as I've heard the heat at that time of year is terrible. I usually wear a lot of layers because I like to keep my body covered due to self consciousness, and I've been lucky to get away with it because I live in a cold country, but I won't be able to do that if it's super warm. So I was wondering, what clothes are flattering on chubby girls, but still not too warm when it's hot weather? :-)
Oh man, do not worry about flattery. I know that is hard. But when it is hot, you got to wear what you got to wear.
Personally, I wear a lot of sun dresses, skirts, tank tops, shorts.. It gets to hot in the summer to care what people think.
Hey ladies, I’ve submitted before but I’d like to share something.
A week or so ago I was walking to work and a man with his girlfriend spat at me and called me some colourful names including the words “fat” and “ugly”. Usually I just tell people like this to politely erm dander off.
But it really got to me, I’ve been feeling so low about my looks the past few weeks and that just pushed me over the edge. It began a horrible spiral and has turned me into someone I didn’t recognize.
I don’t like the way I look, I never have but I just get on with things and joke about it, and while I am sensitive I get mad not emotional. But this incident triggered feelings of inadequacy that made me cry in the work toilets for an hour and stop eating for a week.
But this morning I woke up to sunny day, and decided that no I wasn’t going to cover up and hide in doors all day. I don’t care how ugly or fat I am, I picked myself up, did my make up, put on my shortest skirt and I’m about to take my dog for a walk in the park with a bunch of books and let myself enjoy the day.
Ladies (and gents) I’m very proud of myself today and I’m feeling really good about myself and I thought I’d share :)
