OOTD: Love Your Curves

I love the idea of embracing your curves and loving yourself while expressing it through fashion.” – Hayley Hasselhoff

It’s not a big secret that I used to be bigger than how I am today. And after battling through an eating disorder caused by my insecurity, I’m slowly recovering and trying to live a healthier lifestyle. It was not easy, it will take a lot of discipline, but once you’ve gotten used to it and have adopted it into your system, you’re good. My advice to those who keep asking how I lost weight is to not do any fad diets. Just eat a healthy and balanced meal you can keep doing for the rest of your life and you’re good. Because if you do one of those drastic diets, eventually, your weight will bounce back, and you may even gain more actually. I keep reminding everyone to make BEING HEALTHY the goal and not just losing weight to look “pretty.”

A few months back, you won’t see me wearing anything that hugs my curves. I was so disgusted with my body plus I was using the “I’m stressed so I deserve to eat this much” excuse and the “I’ll eat healthier tomorrow/next week/next month” promise. It was just that bad. I started seeing myself as someone who’s really ugly and unhealthy. My hormones were going crazy, my knees were complaining, and I can’t stand being as active as I used to be.

Things are different now. I learned how to really embrace my curves, love every layer of flabs I have, and enjoy what a healthier body can do. It wasn’t an easy process though. There are times when I just want to take the easy way out, but I promised my body that I will take care and love it more than the thought of just looking pretty. What is the use of thinner frame if I end up being sickly and weak because of my own actions, right?

To all those who keep saying they are fat in a negative way, stop it. Being fat is not bad. Being unhealthy is. And let’s erase the idea of the #BalikAlindogProgram. It is shitty and not encouraging. It only scratches the surface. Let’s go for #BeHealthyProgram instead. It’s okay if you have flabs or a double chin. As long as you’re healthy and you keep a healthy lifestyle, you don’t need to worry much about other things, you know?
