Y’all know any tumblr blogs from Musashino Tokyo? I have someone from there that’s obsessed with me and it’s getting creepy. Like ok, I know you love my hair, but please move on.
Can’t believe I’m brave enough to post this!! I’ve always been so self-conscious of my body, but have found so much encouragement from tumblr body acceptance blogs :) This is in my own backyard, btw.
I’m a USA size 18. Follow my brand new plus sized blog!
Cellulite and jumbotron legs on this hamplanet. I run to keep from becoming this.
So sad that you hate yourself so much that you sit around and reblog body acceptance posts, then try to criticize them. I really feel bad for you, and all the negative thoughts you must constantly have about yourself. Whelp, if it will make you feel better about who you are, I guess you better get off tumblr and “keep running”.
Exactly one year ago I posted this picture. I had just made this blog, and it was only the second body acceptance photo I had ever posted. Right after posting it, I got the hateful comment above. It definitely hurt my feelings, and I even second-guessed whether I wanted to keep this blog.
But then I realized that the hate they projected was just a reflection of them, and that the best way I could help other women feeling as defeated as I was feeling was to continue with this blog. And I am SO glad I continued. I’ve been inspired and supported by so many people on here, and I’ve been told that I encourage some of you as well :) Keep strong, fat babes.
Oh man I was doing so well this quarter and turning in all my hw, until today. First paper this quarter that I didn’t turn in. I don’t want to slip back in that cycle of anxiety and not turning in work :((( I’ve just had so much happening recently, such as the loss of someone close to me to suicide last week, and my husband losing his best college friend in a car accident a few days ago, and my husband having to take on a second job again, which means that we will both be on campus from 8am to midnight most days, and trying to deal with sensitive family issues, and so many other small things. And I feel those panicky feelings again, and the utter apathy towards doing hw. I’m so close to graduation though, I can’t ruin everything now
no one can ever, ever tell me that I should feel bad or wrong for taking selfies and appreciating my appearance. I will not go back to hating my body and face so much that I couldn’t look at myself without wanting to tear my skin off. no one will ever have a valid reason for why I should feel ashamed of taking photos of myself. I will not put their feelings before my own. I will NOT give up the love I have for myself because it makes somebody uncomfortable or jealous.
Heck yeah I’m all about that Clean Eating lifestyle. Washing my hands before making cheeseburgers, not eating candy that dropped on the floor, tying my hair up when baking cupcakes and cookies. You know, Clean Eating.
For those that wanted to buy my neon dress but were grumpy that they didn’t see it on the Forever 21 website, I just checked and it’s there. Search for Spotlight Scuba Knit Dress in the plus size section. The colors on the monitor are really really off but the color I wore in the photoshoot is Neon Coral. I got it in 1X.
Here are some more cute outfits I tried on a few days ago but didn’t buy. The first 2 are from Forever21+, the third photo is from Choice Plus, and the last 2 are from Ross.
