Finding that happy weight medium

by Jamie0liversgirl (follow)
acceptance (26)     
I've always been the same weight, or at least I've thought so. My clothes fit the same, nothing (much), has changed in my body since I was about sixteen.

I'm lucky, but I haven't always been confident with my weight. At times I've wanted longer legs, a slimmer waist, or a generally more toned appearance.

Finding happiness with the way I look has been a long and hard road, but I can finally say at 23 years old, I am happy.

Finding the happy weight medium isn't always easy, however. It doesn't come from others telling you that you look 'great', or receiving compliments from your partner because frankly it's not their body, it's yours.

Regardless of what others say, finding that happiness within yourself is key to a happy weight medium.

I have found that I'm finally happy with my weight, and whilst I may lose or gain a few pounds, I'm always the same weight and that's what has kept me happy.

My weight doesn't really fluctuate (apart from around the time of the month when I can get bloated), but being comfortable with yourself is a wonderful feeling.

Smiling faces happy acceptance weight

I've noticed that I now stand straighter, my head is high and my chin is well and truly up.

Whether society deems you big or small, as long as you're happy with your weight, everything else will follow.

I was pretty happy with my weight at 23 as well :D Now at 48 I am finding self acceptance of my body a little more challenging. I would love to have my 23 year old body back again... but I like who I am and that means accepting my body as it is, as I get older.
