Normally i dont really like having my picture taken. In fact. I am usually the one behind the camera. Because of my size. I find my body looks aweful in pictures. Plan and simple i think i look fat. Unless i take the picture myself and get just the right angle so i dont look as bad. It is a real struggle for me to be comfortable with the way i look. I know that im overweight. I know that im unhealthy. I know that its bad for my bones. I know all of those things. Its just hard. When you are constantly being judged by people whether with words or just stares. Its hard to want to go out and walk or go join a gym when people judge you for the way you look. Its hard. But. I am learning to become a bit more ok with the way i look. I have curves. I have hips. I have an ass. I have boobs. And that has to be ok. Cause thats the way i am.
These pictures were taken by my boyfriend. I had to tell him that i want more pictures of me that arent selfies. I am constantly taking candid snaps of him(hes so photogenic its maddening). He said fine. But only if you dont critic them before i post them or make me delete them because you think you look bad. So i agreed. The pictures never got posted. I just found them on my phone and was looking through them. I thought to myself. I look pretty darn good in some of these. Im no supermodel but im ok.
So please. Just be nice. It takes a lot of courage for some people to post pictures of themselves. So no negative comments please. Think of how you would feel. Or how your child would feel before you say something hurtful or rude.
