Love Your Self by BiteMe107x Love Your Self by BiteMe107x
No pervs cause I swear I will go off on you. I've never really felt comfortable with my body. Every since I was young I had bigger breast then the girls in school, and bigger thighs and it bugged me. I never gain or lose weight. But something that has always bugged me is my stretch mark scars. I was born with the stretch marks, both my brother and mother have them. If you look at my hips you can see very faint line as I tan the lighter they are, more visible; and unfortunately I tan very easy with 2 hours in the pool I will have a dark and very visible tan lines all because I consist of French, Italian and Spanish; which I absolutely love. But this year (2013) has been a really bad and hard year for me. I started concentrating on my body more and pretty much bullied my self. I found my self eating less and less, but don't worry I never starved my self to the point of getting sick. when I got hungry I'd eat something however it wasn't big, I never really had big meals. About a month ago I realized what I was doing and started to take action in fixing it. I've gotten better however it is till hard to eat big meals with more then just one thing on my plate because for so long I ate so small. But I've come to the point where my body hasn't changed for almost 4 years if anything I've slimmed out a bit because when I entered High School I decide to eat healthier so I did cut down on the soda and drank water, threw away the chips and ate a banana. I fell like if I didn't catch my self I would have gotten in really deep and wouldn't have been able to pull my self out and if so it would be so much more difficult. So to reward my self I decide to by a nice bikini bathing suit that did a job of holding up my breast, which makes me feel so much more comfortable. So just be you, it's not worth ruining your body to try to be someone else cause no matter how hard you try you'll never be that person.

that's really well said!  sounds like you're doing well with it all! :)

i'm a binge eater, and it takes so much effort to not binge at all.

I think this outfit looks really nice on you...that makes a great style of bikini top for you...the colors and pattern works perfectly for you.

wishing you all my best! :hug:

Thank you. I figured after everything I've gone through with never really being truly happy with my body why not do something nice for myself and buy a nice and well fired bathing suit considering I've struggled with finding well fitting ones

Now I'm considering being a perv just to see how mean you can be. Disable downloads for this sort of thing though

Well that just showed how mean you can be. When you post a deviation, click the box in the right upper corner to disable them. You can also do the same thing from the edit screen

Thank you.

That's nothing. I don't like to be mean but I can be. I've dealt with enough shit and enough assholes in my life that I can be very very mean.

Excellent advice.

I photographed a lot of people last year for an art show about body acceptance, and everybody, no matter what their body type, had issues. This culture has promoted an impossible ethic where we're supposed to look like models in the magazines - when in fact, even they don't truly look like the finished product.

The lesson is simply to accept your own beauty. It's okay to strive for healthy changes, but to be aware when a quest to be "better" becomes unhealthy, either physically or mentally.

You look beautiful to me.

I couldn't agree more. I saw a video on youtube were some girl took a photo of an over weight women and shrunk her down to a model size, she then took a photo of a model before being touched up and touched her up exactly like in the magazine photo, you saw every move she made in photoshop that changed the girls into someone they aren't.

Thank you so much for your comment it means the world to me :)

I'm glad.

Our sense of self beauty is a complex issue - a huge part of it seems to come from societal pressures, the way it seems people THINK you should be, and the way culture portrays beauty. Most of us don't see it (our own beauty) with rational or realistic eyes, finding fault where others might not see anything (your stretch marks, maybe?), or being embarrassed with aspects that people do notice (big boobs)

Best possible approach, no matter what size or shape you are -- carry yourself with strength and dignity, head held high, shoulders back.

Its easier said then done, but I'm getting there. and since I have 2 little sisters I need to set a good example so they know that if they want to lose weight not to almost kill them selves doing it

It's all about balance -- something every single person has to struggle to find and maintain, in SO many ways.
It must be about the greatest ongoing challenge of being an adult.

oh ya, it defiantly is. on top of all the other responsibilities we have, my parents always complained about how easy it is beginning a teenager now a days, I just graduated and I can tell you the way my parents described their highschool life SOOO different. They never really had these body issue problems like they do today, I've had a few friends commit suicide from body image and being bullied. My dad was popular in HS but my mom wasn't. I've asked about all that stuff. My parents can't think of any suicides my mom never remembers her or any or her friends truly hating their body enough to hurt them selves. I have friends that cut. I don't think people realize how bad the world is getting.

year ago kids didn't make it to adulthood because of diseases now a days its because kids are getting bullied or grow up in bad homes and can't take it so they take their own life. Its become ridiculous and I refuse to let that be me.
