Freshmen year I read a book The Earth My Butt and Other Big Round Things, throughout the book the main character talked about thinspirations. Which are things or people you surround yourself with that inspire you to be thin. She would cut out pictures of models and celebrities she wanted to look like to help her stay on her diet, etc.
And for a while I thought that was a great idea. It kept you on track and you could visualize the outcome. But honestly it just made me feel even worse so I stopped. I learned that I needed to surround myself with things and people that inspired be as well as made me feel good about being me. Now I have new inspirations; women who make me feel good and make me want to be and do better.
tessholliday, an American plus-size model from Los Angeles. She self-describes as a “body positive activist” and started her #effyourbeautystandards movement. This women is beyond beautiful and I aspire to be as confident and inspiring as she is.
LoeyLane, she is a YouTube personality, She is a beauty and plus size fashion guru. Her whole mission is to spread body positivity. This are the people I want to be inspired by, who I want to someday meet.
I am a confident person, but I do have my moments where I feel low. When I am feeling low I pick myself up with some awesome music.
