Body (Proud to be curvy)
For once, an on-topic safe for work post! That means I don't have to cut it... right?

I never thought I would actually say this and mean it, but...
I weigh more than a lot of people, and that is one fabulous thing.

My body is unique, it is interesting, it is luscious- curving and swooping this way and that, like a beautiful hilly landscape. It is soft and warm, seemingly magnetic for pets and children to cuddle against. It cushions me if I take a tumble, and makes nearly any surface comfortable to sit or lie on. It keeps me warm when I take a refreshing dip in a chilly lake. It gives me presence when I walk into a room, demanding attention. I can play dress-up whenever I want to - I can make clothes for it, buy clothes for it, decorate it any way I want. Or, I can take a snooze in the nude and enjoy the feeling of soft sheets against my skin. It is among the likes of Queen Latifah and Mo'nique, women of size and substance. I can eat a huge variety of foods with various caloric levels and not feel guilty in any way.

I am plump like a roast, and thicker than most.

Thank you so much for sharing. It is something I hope to feel about myself some day - and I work at feeling that way every day.

That sounds like the beginning of a really cute poem! Kinda like if Dr. Seuss wrote about curvy girls. :)

Rock on sistah! That is so amazing. Beautifully said. That is what it's all about. Living a life you love. Love the skin you're in. Your words inspire me. I'm going to print it out and post it by my desk. Keep writing. You have a unique voice.

Thank you :) It's about time people start being one with their bodies instead of constently fighting them with ridiculous (and unhealthy) diets and crazy exercise regimens.
P.s. I checked out your blog site and really like it- I've added it to my lj syndicated feeds :)
