My name is Carly.
I’m 19 years old. I’m 5’10” and 180 pounds.
When I was younger, back in high school, I had problems with my body. I compared myself to other people to the point where I didn’t see myself as pretty at all. My three main girl friends were all short and very thin. They were the ones getting the attention of guys anywhere we went. But as I’ve grown older and more self confident, I’ve realized a couple things.
1. Do not compare yourself to other people. Everyone is unique for a reason. If everyone looked the same, the world would be an extremely boring place. You are you, and your body is unique and beautiful no matter what.
2. Realize what you like about your body and use it! I came to love my boobs, my stomach, my smile, and my legs. Find outfits that highlight what you like about yourself. Focus on the things you like, and maybe you won’t see anything bad anymore.
3. As I came to like myself and my body, so did other people. As I became more confident, I started getting attention from guys. When you are confident, happy, outgoing, and proud of what you have, that is what people notice.
4. Don’t focus on numbers. I used to hide the size jeans I picked out in stores from people because I thought it was too high. Today, I wear a size 15-17 and I’m damn proud of it. It’s not about the number. Find what looks good on you and rock it!
When you’re confident and love yourself, that’s what people notice. They’ll notice the good things when you do. I’m dating my best friend and boyfriend, Brandon. He loves me for who I am; for my personality, not my body. He says I’m beautiful, sexy, attractive, etc. But I realized that about myself before I met him. You have to love yourself before anyone else can love you. Be proud of who you are. Be confident of what you have. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! And everyone has something to flaunt. You are all beautiful in so many ways.
