my pudge. 😊
stretch marks and a keloid on my belly button because I pierced my belly button three times by age 19…
I love it though! I’ve been in this body for 22 years and never had any major health problems.
I’ve always found it quite baffling that people assume because someone is plus sized that their health is terrible?
Not the case.
Anyway, here’s to body appreciation- for all the girls with stretch marks, scars, discoloration and skin conditions alike; you are too, beautiful!
Don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.
Love yourself and fuck what anyone else has to say.
