The first thing I think about anytime I take pictures is that I am not the right size. One of the reasons I was so reluctant to blog was because I was waiting until I lost weight. Just the thought of taking pics and trying to look cute at a size 12/14 made me feel unsure of myself. Until just recently I decided that I will make the best and work with what I have now.
I have a straight body shape, which means that my bust and my hips are basically the same size. I know my body, and know what I am looking for when I am shopping. After you find out your body shape, then you will know what type of clothes flatters your body! One of my favorite stores to shop at is NY & CO they carry up to a size 16, they also have petite, average and tall in pants, so it makes it very easy to shop there.
I did a little research and the average size of an American women is size 14! I think it would be awesome to see average sized women in the media. I wanted to see what my healthy body weight was for my height, I found out that I do need to eat and exercise to be at a healthy weight. For me it is not about what size I am, but about being healthy and feeling good about my self. Confidence is loving and accepting who you are right now.
