Up until recently, I carried a slight shame about being my size/being fat.

No matter where I was, it felt like there was always this stigma that hindered my confidence and ability to really live:

• You’re fat, so you’re instantly unhealthy.
• You’re fat, so you’re definitely not fit.
• You’re fat, so there’s no way you’ll ever you’ll find a girlfriend.


And yet, during every step of my life, I’ve always been at 100% health (outside of being overweight of course), I can’t run/jog a mile, but I keep myself strong and quick enough to where I feel I’m averagely fit, and my dating life has been great - being fat hasn’t truly been a damper to my life at all; only when I mentally made it a challenge for myself.

This is for everyone who has let body image issues stop them from living their life. I was unsure about submitting at first, but then I realized I have nothing to hide or being ashamed about in regards to my body. I’m big, I’m black, and there’s not a force out there that can stop me.

Just like there’s nothing that can stop you from living, and doing whatever you want in the world, other than you.
