First of all, I know this picture isn’t great quality and my skin looks about 6 different shades of white so sorry for that. It took everything in me to put this picture up considering how self-conscious I am, but I’m doing this for a reason.
I see a lot of posts on tumblr about being insecure if you’re overweight and/or if you’re skinny, and also posts about how you’re beautiful no matter if you’re skinny or overweight. But I haven’t seen anything directed towards the girls who are “stuck” in the middle of the two. I wouldn’t consider myself overweight, but I definitely wouldn’t consider myself skinny either. I have small, B cup-sized boobs, not much of a butt, and a pooch on my belly. I might have curves, but they don’t feel like the “right” curves that everyone else with curves have. And my biggest insecurity of them all are my thighs - they’re big. I have no thigh gap.
Nobody mentions how hard it is to be stuck in the middle. It’s hard because you feel like you’re too big, but you aren’t overweight so you can’t really say that. If you mention anything to be insecure about, someone will get angry with you and tell you you’re skinny even though you really don’t think you can be considered skinny. The clothes meant for the skinny girls look too small on you, yet the sizes for bigger girls feel too baggy. I feel awkward in my body all the time, and nobody mentions how hard it is to lose weight when you have this body type. You only lose weight in a few select areas, and some areas it is seriously near impossible to lose weight. You get told to just work harder, but it seems like no matter what you do, nothing works. It’s frustrating and so incredibly hard. You know you aren’t fat, yet you know people notice you aren’t skinny either, and you think people don’t want you because you either aren’t skinny enough or you aren’t curvy enough, and there’s is nothing you can do about it.
I just want all the girls out there with a body type like mine who feel like they are stuck, that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. I know it’s hard and you feel like nobody understands, but I do. Though it may seem hypocritical of me to say considering I dislike my body and don’t consider it beautiful in the least, whenever I see another girl with the same body type as me, I see their body as beautiful. There is nothing wrong with being in-between. You might feel stuck because you aren’t skinny or overweight, you might even feel awkward in your body, but either way, you are beautiful. You get a bit of everything, which could be taken as a blessing. And I promise that others will see you that way too. If anyone ever needs to talk my ask is always open! I love you all <3
If you read all of this, thank you. I felt the need to touch on this subject because I feel like girls with this body type are somewhat ignored, and that their issues are seen as irrational to many other people for whatever reason.
