The picture to the left of my babbling here is me. IN SKINNY JEANS. Not super tight ones because I HATE skin tight things on me (the feeling, not the look necessarily).
If you don't know me personally, you probably don't know that I don't wear pants very often (LOL). I wear skirts/dresses with leggings because 1.) they're soooo comfy and 2.) they're easier to wear when you're big. They're flattering, cute, easier to find in big sizes, and hide "things." Pants hug you and are like, LOOK AT MY FAT.
I may have lost some weight, but I'm pretty much still about the same size. So why am I seen in this picture wearing my NEW skinny jeans? Why am I wearing a cami and lace top when I always assumed that I would get to warm in multiple layers because I'm fat (and a human furnace)?
Because, my friends, I AM COMFORTABLE WITH MYSELF. I am fat and I am OKAY with my body. Once you accept yourself unconditionally, you feel a certain sense of liberation. "I am okay with myself, so I can now wear whatever I want." I know it's kind of silly to feel that you can't wear certain things JUST because you're fat, but I know that a lot of people feel that way too. Certain things aren't flattering on certain body types, for sure, but just because you're fat doesn't mean that you can't wear what you want. I wish I had known that all along. I am so happy now because I have accepted myself and my size. Sure, to some I don't look fat at all and to others, I look like a "grenade," but I am DAMN PROUD of who I am and I think that I am sexy.
So I'm going to wear skinny jeans and bright colors and look damn fine in them!
