I like this statement for the sentiment it shares regarding big, beautiful women, but I do not care for the sentiment it expresses regarding smaller women or thin women.
MEDIA has dictated what we ALL perceive as beauty and socially acceptable. Body positivity and body acceptance is just that - being positive and accepting of ALL bodies. Tall, Short, Fat, Thin, Curvy, Straight, Hippy, Busty, Flat, Wiggly, Firm….the adjectives do NOT matter, THE PERSON MATTERS!
ALL Bodies are beautiful to someone.
Please allow yourself to see the beauty that you are <3

- You have a clear perception of your body shape. You see your body as it really is.
- You appreciate your natural body shape. You celebrate your unique body style.
- You understand that a person’s true character is not revealed by physical appearance.
- You are proud of your body.
- You refuse to spend time worrying about calories and your weight.
- You feel comfortable in your body.
A negative body image is:
- An inability to see your body as it really is. Your perception of your body will be different from how it is.
- Not believing you are attractive—that only other people are.
- Considering your body size, style, and shape as a personal failure.
- Feeling ashamed and anxious about your body.
- Always feeling self-conscious.
- Constant worrying about calories, weight, and food.
- Feeling uncomfortable in your body.
