Thank you for stopping by and hitting the follow button :)
So in this post I want to talk about body image. I got permission of Hermina (Dutch plus size blogger) to put her banner on my blog. Dont' you like it? Sounds easy, right?
Recently a series about fat people started on television. This was a highly anticipated program. A pioneer on itself. Well, I watched it and sadly enough fat people we're portrayed as unhappy, wanting a different body. I was flabbergasted when this lady chose to do a gastric bypass operation. She was so happy when she weighed herself only shortly after the surgery. I didn't know what to think. I'm not saying you shouldn't do the operation. If this is your way of making a healthy step, who am I to judge.
But I missed the group who is NOT dieting or hiding their bodies. Where are the portraits of women/men who love their fat body as it is and take care of it? I missed the balance. Once again being fat is associated with negativity, lack of success and poor self image.
Today I had my interview with the local newspaper because of the MPS Fashion Pageant. I was so nervous in the morning. So if you see my face all uptight, you know where it's from. I chose a more edgy look. I wanted to show my strong and proud side with this outfit.

Loving your bodies may start by loving yourself.
Loving yourself is accepting yourself with flaws and all.
Accepting that there's not a thing like perfection.
Accepting that everything you are, is unique.
There's no second you.
So cherish yourself, because you're worthed.
Love your body
Have a great weekend
