It has taken me forever to finally love my curves.
I don’t recall how I got so twisted about body image but somehow I did. I bought into skinny as the ideal. I really did.
Today I fight to make healthy the ideal. I FIGHT. I do not eat crazy and I do not deprive. I do not workout till death and I do not sit on my butt all day.
Curves are what you get when you cross a Latina (or any woman really) with a lifetime of living and a pinch of discipline. This is often a journey that requires some help. I surround myself with positive people. I also look for beauty in the those around me. Few things inspire me more than seeing a beautiful woman owning her own curves, grey hair, sensuality, power… I have dedicated an entire Pinterest Board to exactly that. Check out and follow Our Bodies, Our Selves if you want to see what I am talking about.
It’s 2013 and I hope you love where you are and love where you’re going. There is nothing better than that.
