  1. thank you for writing this. I’m slim, but as a fashion blogger I’m always on the photo, criticised by myself and other, I’m not even sure by who by most…. It’s hard to stay “body positive”. People find such a pleasure in building somebody up and then to tear them down again. I find it important to read articles like this to remind me that we all feel like this from time to time, no matter how big or small. It’s important for me that my daughter doesn’t beat herself up like that… It’s a work in progress 😉

      I never understand why people feel it is ok to be so negative about someone elses body. We are hard enough on ourselves without their negative input. Thank you for reading.

  2. Amen to loving the skin and body we are in. It’s a process but once you just embrace who you are there’s such freedom to just be you and appreciate yourself.

  3. No matter what your size it can be so hard to accept your body. Instead, I think we need to focus on doing the best we can each day and being proud of the small achievements we’re making. It can be very overwhelming to reach a big long term goal and it takes time. The small victories are just as important, like creating healthy habits.

      You are so right, small victories add up over time. The sad thing is sometimes we reach our goal but then find it hard to accept. Thank you for reading.

  4. YES! I can relate to this so much. It’s so easy for us to tell others to love their bodies and be confident and that they are beautiful no matter what. But we are always our own worst critics. That inner voice can be a killer sometimes!
