Hi there all you beautiful people! <3 My name is Helen, and I’m 22, a vegan, a hoop dancer, yogi, and I’m a full-time graphic design major/drawing minor.
I have a history of not fitting into people expectations. A common phrase I hear is “If you’re [insert random thing from above here], how come you’re chubby?” To which I always reply, “Because my body loves how it is right now, and I love it, too!”
The adorable fuzzy chubster of a man with me in this photo is my loving fiance, Byron. When we got together in middle school all those years ago, I hated my body to the point of…not treating it well. He helped me open my eyes and led me down a path of self-love that I never knew existed. Together we discovered our sexualities, both of us Pan, but we’re both happy with each other <3. Self-acceptance is a huge ideal we have in our relationship. 
This summer we were in Dallas, TX on my 22nd birthday, and the woman we were staying with decided to take me to a water park since I hadn’t been to one in years. The problem was I didn’t have my swim-suit with me, so I had to buy a new one while there. But when I got the the local Wal-Mart, they had no 2-pieces suits that covered my belly. So, I decided, then and there “Why cover up?” Turns out I always had an adorable bikini body. All I needed was a bikini. :D

(**The following is a story about being a plus size bride that is potentially triggering**)I felt that in the time leading up to my wedding, everything started to be about image. The minute you walk into a bridal store, you&#8217;re bombarded by the fact that samples don&#8217;t come in your size, or that so-and-so cut won&#8217;t flatter you, or that you&#8217;ll need to wear this-that-and-the-other shapewear to really &#8220;suck you in&#8221; (all of this was actually said to me while shopping for a dress.) It seems like I went in cynical and strong, but as the wedding grew near I found myself more and more worried. I thought about the eyes on me and the pictures, and the judgement of everyone because my body wasn&#8217;t ideal. I wasn&#8217;t bridal. I feared every fitting. I started to believe &#8220;random&#8221; tips I was getting on weight loss pre-wedding. Still, with the help of Tumblr, my friends, and my now husband, I was able to scoff off the crap time and time again. Through all of the misguided &#8220;tips and tricks&#8221; I walked down the aisle as ME. My husband said &#8220;I do&#8221; to ME. You are beautiful the way you are. You are bridal (should you choose to be, etc.) You are just as worthy as the brides in the magazine and on Pinterest and everywhere else. Don&#8217;t let anyone tell you otherwise! Now I look at this photos and all I see is magic. It was a perfect day.

Hi! I&#8217;m Amelie (:
This is my second submission. I just loved the positivity I got back from this blog. I&#8217;m still trying to accept my body more. Sometimes it&#8217;s really easy and I feel so attractive, and sometimes it&#8217;s the complete opposite. But I&#8217;m doing my best and taking one step at a time. 
Come be my friend?

TRIGGER WARNING-WEIGHT LOSS/WEIGHT GAIN
Hi! I&#8217;m Eilis and I&#8217;m 18. My weight is constantly fluctuating and I&#8217;ve finally come to terms with the fact that I&#8217;m not going to be a size 6 again, and I&#8217;m ok with that. I love my body, my curves and everything about it. As long as I&#8217;m healthy, I do not care one bit how much I weigh, or what size I am.

US, size 18, age 22 :)

It took moving 2500 miles from my small, southern hometown to the bay area in California (and you lovely ladies of course!) for me to finally start accepting my body, fat stomach and all! I met an amazing man who loves my lumps and rolls, and has made sex fun instead of awkward for the first time. EFF your beauty standards!

tw; eating disorders, depression, self harm

Hey there, I haven&#8217;t posted here in a long time. I had relapsed once more into my starving, binging, purging and cutting. I had quit cutting since before summer started and I&#8217;m really proud of myself, and I had quit purging for two weeks now!
I&#8217;ve decided to put myself into recovery and today was the first day in a long time that I felt great for being who I am. I never saw my illnesses to be a fault, or something to be ashamed of. Despite not looking like someone who has an eating disorder (nowadays how does with an ED even look) I wouldn&#8217;t let it make me feel ashamed about myself as much as it already does.
So I&#8217;m trying to stay on a healthier path that includes working out just a little, slowly quitting smokes and eating better foods. I still want to lose weight, that&#8217;s always going to stick with me, but I don&#8217;t want to continue to feel like I&#8217;m hopeless until I lose the weight. I&#8217;ve given myself a pretty good size to stay within, mind you I&#8217;ll be over weight a bit but only by 30max.
I guess I came here for support. The picture above was when I was happy and confident before my second relapse. I lost a lot of people in my life because of my eating disorder and anxiety, and I don&#8217;t want to continue to do so. (Oddly I am happier without them) 
If you guys feel like you need someone to talk to, my inbox is ALWAYS open for you guys.
Stay happy my lil&#8217; bunbuns. &lt;3
