I’m not a size two anymore, nor will I ever be again… and I do not care. I love my body. Yes, I have curves! But to me, that’s a sign of my strength. It is physical proof that I am taking better care of my body now than ever. I’m conquering my issues and defeating my demons. Someday, a man will love my body the way it is. That’s the man I will marry and give myself to completely. So for now, no other man’s opinion matters. I am strong, confident, curvy, and beautiful. And nothing you say can change my mind now :)
