Yes I am not fat, but I do suffer from body issues. I have been unfortunate to live in a time when sexy means having abs, toned arms, legs, and big buttocks. Now it's not enough that you are lean, you have to be a little muscular. Unfortunately for me, I don't have a type of body that easily develops muscles and even in my small frame my waistline doesn't cooperate. Because of this I have always had a love-hate relationship with my body. I wish I lived in a time when a Kate Moss body is considered sexy.

But I like to think I am a work in progress. More than getting my "dream body," what I really want to achieve is acceptance. To love my body for what it is, to not be ashamed for the extra fats that I carry, to be proud that this body even if it's not perfect is healthy and capable to do great things. This body has taken me to places, this body is not diseased, this body is resilient, this body has conquered a lot of pain. And this body is mine.
