Body Image Struggles And Feeling Good About Myself

( This Site about Body Image Struggles was written by a guest blogger)
Growing up in a world of judgment could be tough for anyone and as an aspiring makeup artist I was consistently pulled into the world of fashion fairly ardently. Everything about fashion drew me to analyze, collect, and flip through fashion magazines. I held onto those magazines as if they were gold. Not only did they help me understand and increase an understanding of styles, it also left me believing the models in those magazines were the material for beauty.
Body Image Problems Today
For years these pictures had been my resource for what beautiful is, and I always modeled my weight and look after them. But then something happened in my experience that I didn’t anticipate I tied the knot!
For me being wed at a young age wasn’t just stressful, it was tough. My focus changed from trying to subside on earth of fashion, to striving to make a marriage endure. As the first year was coming to a close, the craziest thing happened I gained fifty pounds! To my surprise, every pound of that weight was fulfilled without noticing until one day I looked in the mirror and was horrified about the way I looked. I tried everything from rash dieting, pills, tons of exercising and I just managed to lose about twenty of those new pounds.
Initially, my body image battles were so terrible that I couldn’t stand the way my body looked and I tried to dress the same manner I did previously, but that wasn’t a great idea. I realized that I needed to change my wardrobe. I was not happy with myself in the nude and felt as if I was going to be judged for the way I looked.
One day I was hunting around the internet and came across a beautiful full-sized girl. This girl was formed similar if you ask me and was not moping around feeling sorry for herself. She boldly portrayed her body as something that was as perfect as any other body. It turned out, with further investigation, that she was nude beach pussies . Something clicked that day within my head. Through her extreme self-confidence she led me to believe she had one of the most incredible bodies on the planet.
Today, getting nude for image shoots is simple, and it’s also all thanks to some change in myself. It’s as if I’m showing to others that I adore my body, and the anxieties and shame took a back seat to my newly found confidence.
I would like to spend my time just relaxing with the body I have, and not worrying that individuals might judge me. I figure in a way, I have become a believer in naturism and in the naturist ideals.
