I have always had a love/hate relationship with my thighs. They’ve been too big, too much cellulite, not quite thin enough and yet, here I am basking in the warmth of the sun with my big ol’ thighs out and proud. Over the last year I have lost weight and then put some back on but for the first time in a long time I have felt genuinely happy with my body. My clothes fit great, I’m happier in my skin and my thighs look like good enough to eat. I’m embracing the curves some people have to go out and buy – its a miracle.
I have found that embracing my curves and the size of my thighs have also made me come to terms with embracing all of life’s other curves – the ones we don’t always see coming. Those are the ones that hit us the hardest. The one’s we are least prepared to deal with. It’s dealing with the anxiousness of ‘what’s next’ and the feeling of being unsettled with everything that’s happening around you. But I’m learning how to embrace them – learning to embrace life as it comes at me because honestly, it could be much worse. We’ve been this one life to live and live as we sit fit and that’s what my plan is.
