This blog is positive.
This blog is body positive, gender positive, and sexuality positive.
There is nobody whose body does not belong on these pages. However, we still have submission guidelines; please read before submitting.
This is a celebration of self-love. All bodies are beautiful, amazing things and they contain beautiful, amazing people.
Fuck Modesty, Love Your Body.

TW: Weight-gain, diet talk, body negativity
It’s not really a secret, but here: You don’t need to force your body to look different. You don’t need to look different. You don’t need to change your body.
If you eat whatever you want and stay the size you are, it’s a pretty clear message from your body that it’s the size it is meant to be.
Channel your energy into accepting this. Instead of making an effort to change your body, make an effort to change your perception. Your body is the way it is and that’s awesome.
Practice self love; practice looking at yourself and being happy with what you see. Put on nice clothes and check out your own ass. Appreciate the good things that come with your size - it’s easier and cheaper to find clothes for skinny people, for example.
Once more with feeling: you do not need your body to be any size other than the size it wants to be.
TW: Disordered Eating
I’m sorry that you feel that way. I understand how hard it can be when you look at yourself and you don’t like what you see. I would like for you to focus on what you are doing - you are recovering. That fact alone makes you strong, it makes you capable. The shape and size of your body is completely unrelated to your value as a person.
I’m sorry that you don’t see your body represented here. It is very difficult for us to reblog pictures that would be representative without worrying about triggering people. It’s also important to bear in mind that thin bodies are already strongly represented and worshipped in the media, while fat bodies are not; so most of the content here is designed to offset that.
With that said, I mean what I have said in writing “all bodies are welcome here.” You are encouraged to submit, as an act of self-care or to do your part to represent bodies like yours. While I’m reluctant to reblog pictures of thin bodies, I am much more reluctant to pass over a submission with a powerful message.
TRIGGER WARNING: Disordered Eating, Self-Harm, Suicide
This is my fist submission, so i’m not quite sure what to write here..
I’m Emily, and i’m 16 years old. Since i was little, i was fat. A little bit overweight, yes, but kids can be really mean at that age, and so can grown ups. I have always been told ‘You are so pretty, if you could lose some weight you would be beautiful..’ My family wouldn’t understand how much it hurts, and i have been in diets since forever. No matter how smart i was, or how hard i tried, the ‘if you were thinner’ was always there.
I screwed up. I started smoking, cutting, purging, starving. Still, i wouldn’t be thinner. I tried to kill myself.
I couldn’t understand how could anyone call me pretty, when i hated myself.
I’m not gonna say i love myself everyday, and everything is beautiful. I’m taking small steps into recovery, and that includes loving myself. And even though i have my tough days, I am going to make it.
You can do it too, baby. You are beautiful.
And if you ever want to talk to me, my ask is always open.
