I’m 15, 5’0, and 140 pounds. I play softball and am looking to play at a collegiate level in a few years, but making teams has been hard. I’ve tried out and after I do so, coaches have nothing but positive feedback— except that I should really focus on nutrition. I should try to eat less and exercise more.
They tell me I can’t carry on the way I should and I almost want to quit playing the sport I love with all my heart because of my weight. “You’re great, but if you just lost this much weight, you’d be a star.” I prove them wrong everyday; I run so much faster and train harder than those girls who are 20 pounds lighter than me. I play the sport I love and am the weight I am.
I’d just like to tell you guys that this blog has improved my self esteem so much and i’m so glad i found it! i’m 5’1” and 159ish pounds in south florida, so you can only imagine the pressure of being skinny here. I’ve always hated my body and i’m the biggest of my friends. I’m a size 8 and they are all size 2’s & 4’s. I used to feel awkward eating infront of them but not anymore, because your blog has made me realize that size is just a number! Thank you guys, I love you! <3

At the moment I have a xmas temp job in Hawkins Bazaar, a gadget/gift/toy shop based in the uk. I’ve always loved this shop so I’m super excited. Anyway, I noticed today that we are selling “I <3 Me” mugs, and I thought some people here would appreciate it! :)
Keep up the good work, this blog is one of my absolute favourites :)

I’m Demi. I’m 17 (as of tomorrow! :D ) and I’m 5’2 or ‘3. I’m also 161 pounds.
All my life I’ve been told that I”m not good enough. That I’m not skinny enough, which lowered my self value. I got to a point where I was almost suicidal, because I thought I wasn’t pretty or skinny enough.
Then I came to realize: It’s MY body. I can do what I want with it. Nobody has to tell me what I have to put into it, what I have to do to become ‘desirable’. This is me. Don’t like it? Don’t look.
I have nice, voluptuous boobs.
A huggable tummy.
And a nice round bum.
And hey, my boyfriend likes it.
Don’t ever settle because you think that’s all you can get. I waited, and I’m so happy now.
