Today I personally overcame my fears of bikinis that weren't high waisted. My tummy is an area that I'm still learning to love- even though I appreciate everything it has done for me. It's round & covered in stretch marks from carrying my beautiful son in it. My fiancé loves it & constantly touches it & because of those reasons I recently decided to be kinder to it. With every other area of my body- learning to love it has been faking it until I actually accepted.

The misconception about myself & many other fat/plus sized women is that we are this way because we don't care, that we have "let ourselves go" when in reality this is the best I've ever felt/looked. But I couldn't have gotten there on yo yo diets, trying to be someone I'm not, & bullying myself to fit into an unrealistic mold of beauty. I have carved my own path & will continue to do so.. Overcoming one hurdle at a time & appreciating my successes & failures. So today I am celebrating being able to swim with my son without worrying what others might say.. & guess what? No one cared that my tummy was out.. & it was glorious.

This is actually plus size model Tess Munster-Plus Model facebook post and I think she's beautiful.

It annoys me that she always poses with her mouth slightly open.

Honey I got over being self conscious about my stretch marks and sagging skin a long time ago! I wear bikinis and I don't give a rip and a fart what anyone thinks! My husband thinks I look hot and his opinion is the only thing that matters! Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear.

That is because she is taking in Krill.
