Proud Of My Size Link Up

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


I never thought I would ever be blogging about my size. Thank you Rachele over at The Nearsighted Owl for starting this link up. I have to be honest that I hate the fact that I'm not skinny. My family has always giving me problems about it by making fun of me. I have had eating disorders that I had to get help for, and to this day I hate my body. I blame Hollywood mostly. I grew up in L.A. & Orange County and felt the pressure of being skinny at the young age of 9. In fact I passed out at school in 4th grade from not eating. My weight use to bounce all over the place. Now that I'm in my 30's I have come to realize that it's all up to me. I'm proud of who I am, and my size, but I still battle with Body dysmorphic disorder. From everything I have been through, I have made sure that my daughter doesn't have to go through what I did. Everyone is different and we all come from different molds. Whoever said we're all suppose to be a size 2 was insane. As long as were healthy why should any size matter?

 So this is me, I exercise and eat healthy, but still have to wear an XL. I guess this is just my body and I'm slowly learning to love it.


I'm also in the process of changing hair color...so please excuse all the colors! It should be done by next week. I started working again and had to tone done the hot pink  :(



From Head to Toes:
Sunglasses - A random gas station
Owl Brooch - Vintage
Dress - Vintage
Shoes - Converse

  2. You are beautiful! I am really sorry that you had to deal with family not treating you right because of your size. That's horrible. You're right, whoever said we were all supposed to be a size 2 is out of their mind. I am so happy that I found your post! Take care, pretty lady!

  7. I've been browsing on-line more than three hours today, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It's beautiful worth
    enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did,
    the net can be much more helpful than ever before.
