Good day you lovers! I hope you had a fantastic bank holiday weekend despite the weather. If you’re signed up to my YouTube channel, you may have seen my recent Primark haul? Although there’s a few clips of my try on during the video (sorry for the bra shot if you’re easily offended! lol) I wanted to take a few extra shots to really show off my fav items I got and explain why.
I’ve recently found a new appreciation for my figure which has lead to me feeling more confident in wearing tighter clothes to show it off. Since I’ve been blogging and shooting outfit posts, I’ve got an entire library of shots over the last couple of years. I’ve been noticing that when I look back at the photos, I find myself wondering why I felt ashamed of my body at the time they were taken, as in hindsight, I think I look better than I felt at the time.
Although I’m currently the heaviest I’ve ever been, I’m strangely the most accepting and most confident I’ve ever been too. It’s like a switch has been flipped in my brain, since I’ve accepted my body and feeling more proud of it, I’ve also found myself wanting to fill it with goodness too. In addition to that, I’ve a new found LOVE, yes actual enjoyment, for exercise. Like, who am I!? I’ve always resisted exercise but it seems like learning to love my body has meant I want to treat it with the respect it deserves, finally after 30 years of abuse!
