This is the real me!

Hello, lovelies...

This is by far the most honest image i ever posted. This is the raw reality and something i have been thinking of doing for long.
This is me,withou liquify tools, without any less or any more of what i really have. I did edit the colors a bit,gave it some contrast, but what you see here is the real me, just as i am, with no fear, no regrets.

I thought well about this, mostly because somewhat i am tired of all the girls around me crying herselves to how they skinny they want to be for summer, how they want their bones to be exposed, how they want their legs not to touch, how they want this and that, how they even put theirselves to starvation if needed to achieve that. Well, i love myself with all that i am. Do i feel intimidated sometimes? Yes,i do. Do i feel embarassed at some points when i wear less clothes? Without a doubt. However i can still smile at who i am, i don't mind being bigger then most of my friends, having stretch-marks, huge muscles legs and arms, i still love myself and i think that it took me a while to deal with this. I was overweighted ever since i was four or so but right now, at the age of 21 i love myself just as i am, with all the extra curves, all the little things, i won't hide myself and that's it.

I would have a lot more to say but i think sometimes images speak for a 1000 words. If you feel bothered you're more then welcome to leave, if you want to speak your mind please do so, if you don't have nothing to say just think about this. I am not what the society expects me to be, i am however who i am supposed to love.

Please, love yourselves for who you are!
