I used to be skinny without realising it (naturally) and when I gained a bit of weight I thought it was the end of the world and that I can’t wear certain clothes anymore because well – I have a tummy that sticks out! (insert everyones comment: “what tummy sya? pfft everyone has a tummy!” they are obviously trying to make me feel better -_-)
But when I think about it, most of my life has been filled surrounded by the presence of aesthetically big and somewhat curvaceous bodies – from the middle east, to Britain and not to mention my own home country. This is no generalisation but the more places I go, the more I realise that there are women from stick thin (wish they weren’t so thin tho) to medium-figured to curvaceous and big. They’re all gorgeous and beautiful, even more so when covered up.
So realising this cheers me up somewhat because I realise that it’s ok to have a bit of fat just as long as you’re healthy and fit. I’m not always confident about my body and sometimes, sometimes, I wish I had a hot bod of a model. But come on, let’s be real, my body has always and will always fall into the medium-figured category (the middle one, see below) and as time passes by I’m starting to accept that. I’m kinda happy to be honest!
