Hello, my name is April May and as you can see, I’m not exactly skinny.
But I’m not exactly fat either. I guess I’m somewhere in the middle. What some people might call chubby, but I call curvy. It’s taken me years to finally be comfortable with the body that God gave me, and it’s an incredible feeling.
As you can see, I’m not stick thin. I don’t have a sexy, flat tummy and a slender waist. I don’t have toned thighs or sexy legs. But I have confidence, and it will get me a lot farther than any of that will. I have confidence that I am a beautiful girl and that my brains and my heart will get me somewhere in life; not my body.
But I love my body. I love the little fat pouch I get when I sit down. I love that my thighs rub together and I love that I have some meat on my bones. I love that I have love handles that poke out when I wear tight jeans. I see no need to lose any weight. Why should I? I’m not fat. I’m just right.
I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing this for all the girls out there, who have this body type- who feel like they aren’t beautiful or sexy. Because you know what? You are beautiful. You might weigh 300 pounds, but you’re still beautiful. Hell, you might weigh 90 pounds, and you’re still beautiful. I’m not saying girls who are stick thin, aren’t beautiful and aren’t desirable; because they are. I’m simply saying not everyone has to feed into what the media puts out there. You don’t have to be skinny, in shape and toned to be beautiful. You’re beautiful just the way you are.
Don’t change for anyone, ever. If you want to change, change for yourself. Make a change that’s going to inspire you, make you feel beautiful and comfortable with yourself. But never for one second, think you have to change in order to be beautiful for someone else.
