Loving your body can be incredibly challenging, especially for women. We live in a society where small sizes are the norm and people strive to lose weight to be liked and idolized by others, with hopes of fitting into that norm. We live in a society where the media Photoshop the bodies of celebrities to make them appear more curvy in the “right places” and thinner as if something were wrong with being a size 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 and having curves all over. Several issues can develop from not loving and accepting your body including depression, anxiety, self-consciousness, emotional and physical damage, and in some cases self-harm and suicide.
We may not always feel love towards our bodies but honoring, accepting, and respecting that our body is a vital part of who we are is very important. I can see a change happening where more people are accepting their body and I love it! I am all about the uplifting and empowerment of women and I hope that more people start to realize that society has many flaws within itself and you shouldn’t look to that for acceptance and reassurance. If you feel that you want to make a change to your weight or shape you first have to accept how you are in the present to be able to make a change and work towards progression in the future. Remember that you are beautiful inside and out and the number on your scale doesn’t determine your self-worth. Love your body, and most importantly love your self, be good to yourself, and celebrate yourself.

I’m planning to tighten up for my birthday, but I genuinely love my body the way it is. Of course there are some adjustments I’d like to make, but I love it for what it is, and as someone who is young growing up in today’s society that’s rare but I agree that everyone should love themselves for who they are. It is important for peace of mind and for possible relationships. There’s always someone out there for everyone regardless of size.
I agree because I too wish to tighten up but I’m also comfortable with how I look now. Sometimes it just takes time to become content with that and that’s okay because life itself is a work in progress.
