Peace out, pudge!

i was naturally thin, a girl who proudly flaunted her body and the fact that it took nothing to keep it looking toned and tiny. binge-eating entered the picture in my early 20s, and the pounds packed on. in 2010 i took off 20+ pounds, but after getting my first "big girl job" in an office and having access to free food, i gave in and gained it all back. since then, it's been a roller coaster of gaining and losing weight AND gaining and losing love for my body. currently, i'm recovering from a back injury and still striving to get my body to look the way i want it to, but throughout the journey i've found a self-appreciation i never had before. if you're okay with some dirty words, lame jokes, and lots of cat pictures, follow along to keep up with my progress. i promise to always keep it interesting. <3
I love Adele’s voice. I love Skyfall the song; I love the movie too. I love that she co-wrote it, that’s she’s so young, and that she seems like a nice person. But the point of this post is to say that I really loved her dress at the Oscar’s. 
You know what I don’t care for? The fact that I keep hearing about the way her body looked in that dress. If I hear one more, “It wasn’t figure-flattering, she should’ve worn something with more shape to it!” or, “Someone that big shouldn’t be wearing so many sequins,” or even, “Good thing she wore a slimming color,” I pledge to walk around with a sign taped to my chest that says STOP HATING ON HER BODY FOR 5 FREAKING SECONDS.
Can this woman not make ONE public appearance without her body being the topic of discussion? Can she not just get up on stage, sing an amazing song for an amazing franchise that she helped to write herself, belt it out, and make it look easy, without everyone commenting on the fact that she’s not a stick figure?
I don’t even notice her body. I notice the fact that she’s pretty, though—I like the shape of her eyes, she’s got awesome hair, and her skin looks like a baby’s ass. So if you want to focus on her appearance, maybe you could focus on that instead of ripping this talented person a new one every time she speaks because she doesn’t give a shit about looking a certain way.
P.S. this isn’t my image. I don’t know where I found it, but I enjoyed it so I used it—thanks, Google! Don’t bite me if it’s yours, I’ll give you credit if you’d like. Good day.
