I am proud of my size


Can you tell this week I've been a little self empowered? First my womanifesto and now this.
Yes that's me a week ago in a swimming costume.
6 months ago I would never have dreamed of posting this. Even now I feel a little nervous, but don't judge away. I am proud of who I am, the size I am, and what I believe in.
Sure I expect a few negative hater comments, but I'm willing to let that be.
I am a confident, intelligent, self assured woman.
So what I'm fat. Get over it!

Good for you Helen! I am not very comfortable with my size, I really wish I could just accept who I am and not let it rule my life.

I think I need to take a leaf out of your book!

Thanks for sharing

You are beautiful and your confidence just makes you shine!! I just stumbled upon your cute blog & so glad I did - healthy body image is something so close to my heart as I've watched people close to me suffer from eating disorders because they were made fun of for how they looked. You are an excelllent role model for young women!
Now following :)

You're gorgeous. That's such a cute swimming costume! I'm glad you're comfortable with who you are. That confidence makes you so much more beautiful too. I hope other women and girls follow your example and be happy with who they are xoxox
