Channelling my inner @stephanie_buttermore 🖤🖤🖤.
⬇️ A little bit of a rant below ⬇️
As someone who struggles with body dysmorphia, today was one of those days where I didn't feel confident looking in the mirror (swimsuit shopping.. nuff said). My weight has changed and fluctuated A LOT over the years, and I'm still learning to love myself at every stage. I'm currently the heaviest I've ever been, but I'm probably also the happiest, because I'm not restricting myself, and I'm placing more value on my growth and development as a person (in addition to my physical strength in the gym of course). Yes, I do think I look good in this photo, but angles and good lighting are very deceiving - like most people, I like to share only the best side of myself on the 'gram. In conclusion, I have no idea what point I'm trying to make, except that it's okay to feel insecure sometimes. It doesn't make the people who matter love you any less. 💕✌🏻
