Curvy is in.
With the likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Amy Shummer & Meghan Trainor setting the trend, every girl with “extra pounds” and “extra cushioning” seems to have gained a boosted confidence of late. There seems to be no trouble being on the “thicker” and “heavier” side. If these celebrities could pull it off, so can normal human beings… right?
Or so I thought…
The truth is…
It’s not easy being “curvy”. I’ll say it now before you even think that I’m just complaining and what not. With all the extra pounds and added bulk, there is a definite burdensome feel. Just think of this:
Who wants extra weight?
Who wants extra burden?
No one,right? Except of course if you are a weight lifter…you would certainly want that extra weight to carry and to bear. But then, even the professional weightlifters still sweat while carrying and bearing extra weights. There is still an immense effort required… sweating makes it all the more nasty.
I don’t always welcome sweating, you see.
Tell me I’m wrong. Well, are you carrying extra poundage like me?
We’re all for being optimistic about redefining body image, but there are always two sides to a coin. I’m trying to be positive, alright, but before going to that positivity, there is always negativity. Thus, I rave and groan inwardly…. And I let it out… Just to feel better after.
The truth is, I love myself and the body i’m in, but if I had a choice, I’d rather be a little lighter…
