It’s taken me years, decades, to start to accept and appreciate my own body. I hated it for most of my life, felt like a failure because I didn’t look like my mother who was 5’8″ and 120 pounds. Even when I lost enough weight to get down to 120, there was no way I was going to gain four inches to tall and thin like her, so my efforts were deemed “not good enough”.
I love that I’m seeing more women in the media who look like me and it’s slowly becoming more acceptable to look like this and admit that you are attracted to people of size. But fat-shaming and, even worse, fat-baiting, still exists. We have a long way to go.
