Learning to accept my size and body.
Hey ladies. I'm kinda new here, excited to see this forum and meet you all. I've struggled with body image my whole life. I've always been big and used to get teased at high school for my size. I've been on so many diets, tried everything to loose weight. I just can't. I've started following plus size instagram accounts and want to feel as confident as them. Just don't know how. Looking for advice I guess!
I get it. It's so confusing being plus size. Some days you can be full of body positivity and think fuck it, i'll wear whatever I want and my body is not as bad as i think it is.... then other days i'm crying into my donuts after another binge eating session. It's fucking exhausting! I actually have been getting into hiking and yoga, not for weight loss but just to feel present and strong. My goal isn't to be skinny, my goal is just to make this body work well and that is not tied to a size or pound amount. I'm still plus sized but the healthiest I've ever been.
Confidence takes time! I don't think it's something that happens overnight for anyone. my best advice is be kind to yourself. Also it's great you're here as insyze is just for plus folks and i like it because it's nice being around people who look like me. ❤️❤️
Thank you for sharing 💕 I think a lot of us can relate. I’ve also been plus my whole life and struggle with body confidence still… i think we always will when society is so fixated on diet culture. Have you read any of Virgie Tovar’s books?
Relating so hard to this! so so exhausting but that's really great to hear that you are feeling great Angel25 - You go girl!!!
Absolutely Gabby 😍 and its important to know that the confidence journey isn't always linear. We all have up and down days, keep going, you got this!
Me too Annabel! I love Virgie Tovar she has such a great message to share. I haven't read her books yet -definitely adding them to my TBR list.
keep working at it! I personally avoid all celebrity and influencer accounts that promote diet culture. I loved following Kylie Jenner for her style until I realized I was getting depressed that my body would never look like hers. Unfollowed her and now I get my style inspo from elsewhere.
