Hello lovely people,
I’m Liz and this is my tummy. I’m 20 years old and have been struggling with accepting my appearance for the past 7 years. I used to shame myself to tears about my body. I hated it, and because of that I did not treat myself too nicely. In my teen years I worked hard and lost 60 lbs. My body is different than it used to be, and I like that my hard work changed some things. But some things won’t ever change: my tummy will never be flat, my thighs will always touch, those stretchmarks will never go away (I’m looking at you, Mederma). Those facts are acceptable to me now. I don’t know what changed, but in the past year I’d say I have had a radical change in self esteem. I’ve learned to disregard that number on the scale and love myself as a whole.
My body and all its imperfections are incredible; and so are each of yours! As a nursing student I’m learning so much about what we are each made of and how we work that I’ve learned to love what incredible feats my body performs every day! I recently had knee surgery and am so PROUD of how far I’ve come in just a few months. And It’s all my body’s doing! We are each incredible.
I’d like to submit more photos when I’m off these silly crutches. My blog is at http://elizgrace.tumblr.com. Thanks for being so inspirational and viva la revolution!
