My Body Isn't Perfect and That's OkFriday, March 10, 2017
I don't have a perfect body, and I'm finally ready to accept it. All of my life I've fought with my weight: up and down, up and down like a damn yo-yo. When I'm up I feel really depressed about being plus-sized but when I'm down I spend so much time stressing about not gaining the weight back that I can't even enjoy life. And the stress of staying underweight causes me to eat more and I gain the weight back and it's a vicious cycle. I'm over stressing about my weight. I want to just live my life and make better choices, but I don't want to have live every day counting calories, or kick myself every time I skip a date with the gym. I just want to live life, be healthy & happy.
Society will tell you that you can't wear certain things if you are a certain size. And to be honest, if something isn't flattering for my figure (regardless of size) I won't wear it anyway. I love crop tops, and my stomach is nowhere near flat, in fact, it's has a life of it's own (hahahahaha). However I love the style that crop tops give to my looks, plus they are comfy (especially the loose ones). I normally pair my crop tops with high-waisted bottoms (jeans or skirts), but this time, I just paired it with a pair of sweatpants. These aren't even girl's sweatpants, they are men's sweatpants from Target that I purposely bought to be bigger and well....even more comfy! This crop top is a part of Beyonce's athleisure collection, Ivy Park. I picked it up the last time I stopped in Top Shop. Thank you to Evelyn for capturing my sporty look, full tummy and all!
