Great comparison, GH.
I am guilty of wanting to be a string bean. I always wanted to wear the tight jeans, itty bitty bikini, and fit in with all of the other girls.
I would always starve myself, and even tried being bulemic(?). I wanted to be skinny so bad. It drove me crazy and made me depressed.
I say these things in past tense because I've finally come to see that I am who I am. I'm never going to be a size 2, so why put myself through the pain?
Granted I've been losing weight in the past few months, but it's because I want to be HEALTHY! I can finally see the definition of my collar bone, the muscles in my shoulders, or my abdominal muscles, and I think it's beautiful. I'm so much stronger than I used to be. I can do things that would have been physically impossible a year ago.
I'm built like a freight train. I have large, wide, and stout shoulders. My thigh muscles are probably as big around as my 8 year old sister, and I've got enough hips for the entire Victoria Secret crew.
I can throw down with the best of them, and send the boys running for the hills. I'm stronger than average, and I absolutely love it.
I may not be the most feminine looking woman, but I still like who I am. I can honestly say that I love who I am. Granted I have my flaws, but that's all they are. I'm not going to let that stop me from enjoying life, and living it to the fullest.
For all who struggle, you're one in 6 billion. We are all different. No two people are alike, so you shouldn't compare yourself to some size 0 super model. Who cares if you're a size 18 or an 8! You are who you are, and that is all that should ever matter.
