I'm not a size 2

I have never been this size. I would have to stop eating completely to get even close to a size 2 and in the end I think I could only make it to a 4.

No matter how much I wish I looked like this when I looked in the mirror- I will never have that body. Looking into a picture of Megan is the closet I'll get to looking like that.
What i've realized is that it's not the end of the world...
I'f I'm not a size 2.

These girls realized that it's okay to not be like Megan.
They aren't a size 2 but they look every bit as fierce as Megan.
This beauty looks better in a retro style than Megan in a bikini to me.
Christina Hendricks was Esquire's sexiest woman and look! She's not a size 2.
Actually you can surly see her curves are killer.
None of these girls are a size 2 and I can't help but find everyone one of them more beautiful than Miss Megan too. They have confidence and radiant beauty. They aren't starving themselves to be thin and beating themselves up when they eat badly and neither should I.
I work out 3 times a week and eat regularly pretty healthy foods and if I'm never a size 2- so be it. I am proud of how strong I am getting and how good I feel when I eat lots of veggies and greens. Felling good and strong is more important than hitting a certain number and I just have to remind myself that it's just not the way my body was built. I am curvy. Hell Ross loves my curvy body and this is my declaration that I love it too!

Curvy to me is real beauty and it helps just having a reminder of all the other beautiful women who will never be a size 2.
Like this classic beauty. She was never a size 2...
and pretty sure that didn't stop her from being the blond bombshell

Eat healthy loves. Workout and feel great and don't beat yourself up over that slice of chocolate cake or curvaceous hips.

So you're saying the ENTIRE batch of chocolate chips I just shove in my mouth isn't a bad thing ;)


AMEN SISTER. I couldn't have said it better myself. Yes, megans body is to die for, but thats EXACTLY it... TO DIE FOR.

The other girls bodys are by far more lovely, and coming from a girl who doesnt have boobies, i would rather have size d cup boobs than a size 2 waist.

LOVE YOU just the way you are, you sexy thang :)

and you know im obsessed with that last picture.

I love the curvy bodies! My body has been permanently changed since having a baby, but who cares if I'm never skinny again!! All those girls look fantastic!

Im a visitor over from Summer's blog (B is for Brown). She shared your post with me and I want to thank you for posting this. It takes a strong woman to be secure in themselves. And that kind of strength is more beautiful than any size 2. Love it.

I was going to post something like this in 2-fold lately!! I love this. 1) Christina Hendricks, didn't someone say she shouldn't wear a certain dress? I am with YOU, she is SOOO pretty and those curves are uber, uber sexy. 2) I was going to post something like this because I saw a picture of Posh Spice in the latest people magazine (she's in an ad at the bottom of a page) and she LITERALLY looks like she was on Survivor. She looks SO scary skinny and I was thinking "holy sh*t, that is the message we are telling people". Ugh! I would never be a size 2 either, those days ended at age 14 or so and like you, I don't even know how I would go about being one. I do prefer curves on girls and being skinny skinny isn't my favorite (though, when I first saw that pic of megan fox lookin' in the mirror a couple years ago I did want to die ahha), I like some weight on girls. You are really beautiful and it's funny from an outside perspective to even imagine how you have concern for your body- you are have that latino curve goin' on! Work it!

:) way to be positive. it's something some girls just can't come to grips with.

You said it SO perfectly! It has taken me a long time to accept my curves. I'm at my heaviest I have ever been and sometimes that's hard to understand. However, you have to be happy with what you've got and as long as you're healthy that's all that matters.

That was great... being a size 2 is not that fun, is not that easy to get, and is not easy at all to mantein...and believe me, generally, it sucks.
i loved this post, youre super super super strong!

What a great post girl!! I'm not a size 2 either & I think I would have to maybe lose a hip or a leg to even come close. But those women in that picture are beautiful in all their sizes. It still makes me happy that Christina Hendrick won that title. She deserves it. =)
