I’m not pretty “for a fat girl”.

I’m not pretty “for someone with a few extra pounds”.

I’m not pretty “even though” I’m fat.

I’M JUST PRETTY.

(with love, Rory.)

Sorry my stomach is not flat enough for you and I have curves.
I am beautiful the way I was meant to be.

I love this blog but I was wondering if you or your followers had any words of wisdom for me. I am 5'4 and 180 pounds (around there, I fluctuate) and I struggle accepting my small chest. You see, I'm a bigger curvier girl. But my chest is only an A36. Most of my girl friends have C's and D's with a waist at a size 2 while I rock a size 8. I can love my body but accepting my small breasts is difficult.

The concept of “proportionality” is bullshit and arbitrary. There’s nothing wrong with being curvy with small breasts Think about it. There’s this notion that there are matching body parts: thin with small breasts, curvy with big breasts, etc.  And these ideas are simply untrue. There are hundreds, thousands, millions of bodies that disprove this idea by not meeting those bullshit standards. Fuck proportionality. There’s no wrong or right way to have a body. Your small breasts don’t make you any less of anything. Embrace them. They’re yours.

This is me nearly 2 years ago…I had just recently lost about 15 lbs by doing advocare, which was a good experience but not the way too lose a quick 15 lbs. I am not that fit looking now but I am working on it. I am still very happy.

Hi everyone, my name is Aubrey. I just turned 20, I’m 5’5” and weigh about 240lbs. I’m very thankful I came across your blog by chance, I feel like it will help me get through my low days.

But I’m submitting for a different reason. I want to try to reach out to those beautiful big people who are looking for love. My advice? Don’t give up! Just because you are bigger doesn’t mean you have less of a chance for love. I have plenty of slim friends who have never been in a relationship, never been kissed! Me? I’ve had 4 boyfriends, the last of which I have happily been with for a year and a half. And despite my insecurities and problems with self-image, he loves everything about me.

I’m not trying to brag or rub it into your face that I found love, despite my circumstances; what I’m trying to say is that love is out there. And contrary to popular belief, love just won’t find you. It’s a two-way street, you’ll have to meet halfway. Put yourselves out there, but don’t be desperate! My boyfriend loved the confidence I had despite my apparent weight issue. Actually, now that I think about it, I was the one who approached him!

Please believe in yourselves. How can you possibly love someone if you can’t love yourself (even to an extent!)? I believe in each and every one of you. Don’t give up. Life has so much in store for you, don’t spend it sitting at your computer on Tumblr all day! (Oops)

Not posting anon so any of you can follow me/ask me stuff. I won’t bite, I promise! Just don’t expect me to answer “What’s the meaning of life…?”

Best, Aubrey

One last thing, I’ve actually GAINED weight since we started dating (all the dinner dates and whatnot, ugh!) but he still can’t get enough of me. You just need to work with what you have! If you got it, flaunt it.

I really hope you keep adding submissions im adding them all to my page i love all the ones you have added today

@Anonymous

I plan on it! I’m trying to get a lot of posts out today because I won’t be online all of next week. I’ll be taking final exams. I’m glad you’re enjoying this blog. Thank you for the support.

Today I bought a shirt that says “I’M FAT LET’S PARTY”.

I asked my mom how she felt about it.

Her response was a Gentle Encouragement not to wear it, because it’s “self-deprecating humor in really not a charming way.”

I disagree. It is a shirt about BEING FAT and PARTYING.

When it comes in the mail I will take off my baggy sweatshirt that I wear every day, and I will put the shirt on, and I will show up to school for the first time in a long time with my arms uncovered and a shirt that fits. This shirt is not just a shirt that’s awesome in its own right. It is, I believe, a great personal step toward my goal of body acceptance.

And it promotes PARTYING.

With love,
RORY OCTOSQUID

This is to all the people who say I’m not fit enough to be a soccer player. I’ve played for eight years. I am a healthy, beautiful young woman. This is me in my uniform. Problem?

Any advice for a plus sized girl who has smaller breasts? I've always been a "pear" shape but since I've lost a little weight, my breasts are almost gone. I'm finding it hard to find things that look good now. :/ So I have like A cups now.

Experiment. Try a lot of different styles, colors, and shapes of clothing. I know it might take a while, but it’s worth it. If a garment feels good on your body, buy it. If you don’t have time to experiment, check out these links, they should help:

I’ll say ‘thank you’ for them :)

I submitted the picture of me from two years ago. Like I said I loved the way I looked, but wasn’t truly happy. This is me and my boyfriend. We’re both bigger, and working on getting fit, but both healthy and extremely happy with each other. Unlike any other guy, he has never once called me fat, and he loves my body and supports me in any choice:) I want other’s to know no matter your size, everyone is beautiful.
