Alright guys before you like this photo , read up. My friend Alyssa posted a pic of her and stated something that I needed to be reminded of. She said “ Sorry guys but I’m upset and you get to hear about it. I’m sick of the endless messages we hear and see about how skinny we’re supposed to be. Before you just like this and scroll on, think about how you’re contributing to that.
Let’s fix it.” We all contribute in different in a different way and even myself while figuring out what wedding dress I wanted I felt like that. I felt fat and ugly. I still feel like that and that I’m not good enough like that picture perfect Instagram post we all see and like. Hi I’m amanda, I’m 5 8” and weigh 150 pounds. When I was 5 8” and 125 I thought I was fat. I try to eat right and exercise, I feel good. Why do I still feel like I’m not enough. Weight is just a number. I put my dress up for rent and starting comparing myself again, saying but this girls dress who posted is a size 4 , a size 6, blah blah blah. I’ve been contributing to what Alyssa is talking about. You too men. Don’t tell your friend , your girlfriend, your wife, your prego wife that she doesn’t need to get fat with age or when she gets pregnant. Stop. I want to stop. Let’s fix this stigma guys. We are all different and unique. Stop beating yourself up and if you don’t then stop contributing to it in different ways : negative self talk, your picture perfect insta, trying to impress others, what you see around you, etc . This is not a post to say but amanda you are so pretty. I’m not looking for that . I’m standing for something that I know needs to be fixed. Let’s fit it!
