Why Your Body Size Is Okay

why your body size is okay.jpgThe best things in life come in packages labeled “thick” and “voluminous” – whether that be candy bars, hair products, or butts… that is for you to decide. I am not dissing the skinny women of the world because this is for you too.

I am 4’11” and until I started my fitness journey, I was 186 lbs. I don’t know about you, but constantly hearing about what size “I should be” gets pretty damn annoying. I was told I was obese for my height in the 8th grade when I was only 120 lbs. Okay, add 7 years of Taco Bell and 66 lbs into the equation, now what am I? Dead? I feel great, I look good, I am healthy.. why am I classified as obese?

I understand that there is a direct science in which your height should be proportionate to your weight, but it isn’t realistic in any way. I have friends that are 5’0″ and weigh 110 lbs, 5’11” and weigh 190 lbs, 5’6″ and weigh 130 lbs, 5’6″ and weigh 200 lbs. There are select people that proportionally make sense, and I am not one of them.

I have size FF boobs, a small waist, a flat ass (working on it), and thighs that rip through jeans. How is any of that logical? I have learned to love my body and do my best to lead a healthy lifestyle. I still shove some McNuggies down my throat from time to time (meaning every couple days) and continue to work out on the daily. There isn’t one right way to live your life, and if there is I don’t think I’m doing it right. I wouldn’t give up my 3am Taco Bell trips with my friends for anything, so fuck “the right way”.

When you enter college, your life changes. More often than not, so does your pant size. Your body continuously changes as you get older and it is just something you have to accept or adjust your lifestyle accordingly.

Don’t ever feel like you have to look a certain way to be beautiful. Who even came up with the standards to be considered beautiful? Probably some 60 year old man in politics that also considers women’s rights a joke. It is determined by how comfortable you are in your own body. Remember that you are the only person who can determine your beauty. Fuck anyone who thinks otherwise. Be(you)tiful.
