ok so since i posted those throwback pics earlier someone asked me to post a comparison of me then and now. and yeah, ive gained about 60lbs since the picture on the left was taken. and i of course have self confidence issues. im working on them and trying not to get caught up in how i once looked and instead love my body for what it can do for me, rather than how it looks. for example, im incredibly flexible and therefore pretty good at yoga. self love is a journey, and even though i preach it from the mountaintops for others, i am still trying to learn it for myself. you all are beautiful, regardless of your size, and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
