This may or may not come as a surprise to you, but I’m going to tell you my exact size and weight.
Height: 5’3″ / 163cm
Weight: 118lbs / 53.5kg
Approximate measurements (in): 34-29-32
If you’re not sure what all that data means, it just about means that I’m about a size 2 and somewhat curvy (Yay, moderately-sized boobs and genetics!) but nobody would ever say that I’m voluptuous or that I’m “sexy like Kim Kardashian.”
Thank God for that!
I’m getting a pretty nice atheletic build with decent muscle definition and lean muscle mass from parkour and running every week, so I’ve probably reduced my body fat down to like 20% or something in that range.
But, I’ve realized that my body’s genetics built me this way. It’s easy for me to slim down because I have a pretty high metabolism, and I tend to eat whole foods rather than packaged or frozen meals.
I definitely care about how I look because it’s the first thing that I communicate to the world. But, it’s way more important how I feel about my body and how I feel being inside my body!
Yes, I’m short. Yeah, I’m pretty skinny, sure. Yeah, I’m also getting pretty muscular and I have broad shoulders for a woman. Not to mention that my knees turn inwards a little bit, so that’s kind of awkward… And what’s up with my limp hair?!
Ah, well. That’s my body and my body’s part of who I am!
I don’t want to look like a supermodel. I don’t want boobs like Christina Hendricks or legs like Beyonce or a butt like Jennifer Lopez.
I just wanna look like me. That’s not too hard to ask, is it?
I’m proud of my body and I treat it well to make the best of its abilities, no matter what everyone else says it should be.
And you know what? So should you. Be proud of your body because it’s yours!
