This is the blog that I have been promising myself I would do, but up to today, have been too scared to set up.
That's me, my face in the corner of my blog. That is usually all I will show, be it on Twitter, Facebook, my other blog, that's all you usually get. Because I'm plus size. To be exact, I'm a size 22 gal.
I've been overweight my entire life. Well, as far as I can remember anyway. Definately all through primary school. I eat like a regular person and I look like this. Go figure.
I've gone through my entire life being scared of what people thought of what I looked like and have hidden away. Due to my lack of confidence (I hope that's why), I've been single for 15 years.
There. That's honesty for you. I promised myself I would be.
But I've have a revolution in my head, I'm not sure what started it. I like to think that it was some bad ass inside me shouting "Enough of this shit!".
Black is not a rule. I'm a happy girl, I love colour, I will wear it! I've been reading some of the plus size blogs, namely Mrs Bebe , Betty Bee to name a couple and I have started to realise that yes, I'm plus size but that doesn't make me a outcast of society.
I can love and wear fashion, I can look nice in it, I AM NOT GROTESQUE. Confidence isn't just for skinny people. I see plus size gals with boyfriends, husbands etc. If they can have it, surely I can too. I refuse to be the girl that is liked in private but denied in public. I deserve better.
So here I am. My first step. below picture is probably quite accurate, but I'm aiming to change the "fuck off" to a "hello".
