The other day I was thinking about my blog, my followers, the awesome people I have met through my blog and Twitter which lead to future thinking about my blog etc etc.
I have held back on my blog, it was supposed to be my online space and diary but I have treated it as a stranger, you know when you first meet someone you hold back on certain things, well I have decided to change that and the first way to do that is to tell you all that I am plus sized (overweight some would say)
The reason why that is such a big announcement is because I have almost tried to hide it which makes me think that I haven’t accepted it which makes me sad because I should accept myself and so should you. This whole weight issue has really gotten out of hand to the point where some, including myself feel embarassed to admit and accept it and some (not me) turn to unhealthy ways to lose weight quickly to avoid everything that comes with being a plus sized girl. BUT being plus sized doesn’t make you a bad person, it doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable and it certainly doesn’t mean that you, yourself or others should think any less of the person you are. See now that is where I went wrong, thinking that other people were thinking badly of me and feeling self conscious and often intimidated around smaller people. Unfortunately this causes confidence to take a knock which could lead to negative things and habits but I have decided to make a change, I won’t allow myself to hate on myself, I won’t allow myself to feel inferior or intimidated when surrounded by people smaller than me. I have accepted my size and so should you!
I could sit and tell you about the amount of times I have tried to diet and failed, about how I do exercise and how I used to be way smaller but I won’t because this is how I am now and I have chosen to accept it.
Having said all this you can expect a few changes on this blog, my love of fashion is growing rapidly, I just can’t get enough and I have also discovered some awesome curvy girl fashion blogs which have inspired me to just embrace who I am and share that with you, not only for my sake but if there are any of you who are going through the same thing, you too, can learn to accept and love yourself, curves and all.
What you can expect is still to be thought about, but I can promise that it’s gonna be more me, more fashion, more writing and more inspiring.
Let me know your thoughts 🙂
