Hot! How to Fall in Love With Your Curves

It’s unfortunate that society would have women to believe that beauty comes in a size 0 to 2. The truth is, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Yet, many curvy women find themselves feeling depressed or less than because of their bodies. These insecurities fester causing them to withdraw and miss out on life. Though it is imperative to maintain a healthy weight to avoid certain diseases, the reality is you should never feel bad about who you are or what you look like. 

There are lots of curvaceous women out there that have more to love but look great every time they step out the door. Their confidence levels are so high that the negative comments from naysayers don’t even phase them. They are divas in their own right and they grab life by the horns never letting something like their weight get in the way. It can take some time to get to that point, but these tips listed below will help you start to fall in love with your curves. 
Get Out of Your Head
The first step in learning to love your curves is to get out of your own head. Don’t think about what society or anyone else says about what the ideal weight or ideal image of beauty is. You are beautiful and the sooner you realize this, the better off you’ll be. To try and get those negative thoughts out of your head, repeat positive phrases to yourself each day. Hearing things like, “I am beautiful” or “I look good” can really boost your mood and change your idea of how you view yourself. 
Get Rid of Toxic Relationships
If it’s not your own thoughts eating away at your insecurities it’s the people you surround yourself with. Whether it’s your mom always making hints about dieting and exercising, your boyfriend comparing you to other slim women he’s attracted to, or your friends constantly pointing out your imperfections, these behaviors are not good for you. Try talking with them to express how you feel. However, if they aren’t willing to change then you have to separate yourself from them until you’re stronger mentally (or maybe forever). 
Take Care of Your Health
As stated above, there are a lot of weight-related diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease that develop in individuals who aren’t healthy. Taking care of your health is, therefore, imperative to your overall quality of life. Your goal doesn’t have to be to get skinny, but if you’re eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly, you’ll find that your body gets rid of toxins and excess fat which helps you to slim down to a healthier size. Though it might not be a Barbie knowing that you’re healthy allows you to feel great about your weight. 
Buy a New Wardrobe
Of course, you’re going to feel bad about yourself if you walk around wearing nothing but oversized sweatshirts and elastic waist pants. It’s time to switch things up. Believe it or not, there is a lot of fashionable plus size clothes on the market. When you see yourself dressed up in trendy pieces, the weight becomes less of an issue and you can feel confident when you step outside each day. 
Stay Off Social Media
When you’re struggling with insecurities about your weight social media can be one of the worst platforms to use. You see models with slim figures that make you feel bad about yourself. You read comments that viewers write about you or someone else’s body and it makes you feel bad. The best bet, if you’re not mentally strong enough is to stay off of social media altogether. 
Get Support
If you’re really having some trouble dealing with your body image you can seek support. You can talk with a therapist about your insecurities or look for a support group for women. There you can share your stories, get advice, vent about your struggles, and learn how to be more confident where you are. 

Society is catching on to the fact that size really doesn’t define beauty. Think about it. If everyone were made to be the same, the world would really be a boring place. If you have a curvy body there is nothing to be ashamed of. You are just as beautiful as anyone else. Take the time to fall in love with all your curves by practicing the advice above. In due time you’ll look in the mirror and be fascinated by the woman you see.
