- To become well-rounded, chubby, or full in form. - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/
- adjective; sufficiently fat so as to have a pleasing fullness of figure - Stacy & Danah of The Plump Pinay
I confess that I wasn't that proud because I have big bones, extra meats on the side and although I still can fit on a size 29 - 30 when it comes to jeans, I wasn't that confident still just because in the back of my head I'm aiming to have that Victoria's Secret's Angel's body; who wouldn't right. Anyhow, since I embraced hatred towards my full-bodied figure I decided to become friends with the very friendly eating disorders making me both an anorexic and bulimic all at the same time. Yep! Sounds weird but its all true.
That thinking was before I stumble upon The Plump Pinay's blog where Danah & Stacy always write beautiful words about loving your body whether you are skinny, plump, white, or black. I'm not sure if they are aware of it but they bring out the best in everyone with all the things that they share on their blog. I just hope that they keep on posting lots of inspiring stuff so that people like me who lacks self confidence will start embracing life with both hands without worrying about what other people might say.
Oh well, past is past although I still do believe that everything happened for a reason. As of the moment, I stop hating my full figured body and totally embracing whatever flaws I have. I am now happy with what God had given me but still working out on the extra bulge that I gained due to pregnancy. I know it will not come overnight but with the brisk walking and running after the kids, I know I get rid of them in no time.
I'm just so proud to be plump because being sexy doesn't always mean having an oozing body instead it is also about having confidence and the right attitude towards other people.
And by that, I am going to share you a not-so-lookbook-type photo which I still posted on my LookBook account anyway. Hype and let's be LookBook friends.
