A letter to curvy women

Girl, don’t think that because you are over weight, you are unattractive.

Because you’re not. You don’t have to be thin to be attractive.

Only insecure people judge other people’s bodies. Don’t listen to those people that tell you you need to lose weight for whatever reason. Lose weight if you want, or don’t. Only do it because you want to not because someone tells you to. The only person that should be telling you to lose weight is your doctor and they usually have a good reason.

Don’t let other people’s opinions keep you down. Their opinions don’t pay the bills. Their opinions don’t determine your happiness, unless you let them. Their opinions don’t determine your success. Do you think that Melissa McCarthy let her weight hold her back? No. She’s a very beautiful, successful actress. What about Queen Latifah? No. She’s a very beautiful, successful actress too. Yes I’m sure they’ve struggled with not liking their body at some point, but they’re only human. Did they let their weight affect their success? NO. What about Oprah? She’s curvy and is one of the richest people in the world. There have been many successful curvy women: Adele, Missy Elliot, Gabourey Sidbe, Marylin Monroe, and the list goes on!

Just think about all these women the next time someone makes a comment about your weight. Then punch those haters in the face.

You are beautiful the way you are.
