Thank you so much for this project. I can’t think of a better weapon against female self loathing. We are over saturated with images of what women “should” look like, and what “hot” and “beautiful” are supposed to be, and it is about time that women took back ownership over their bodies and demanded to be seen and heard for who they really are. I don’t always feel good about my belly – and recently I’ve been feeling really bad about it – but this site helps me remember to feel sexy because of everything that makes me who I am.

The first pic is now, at 20. I was 16 when I gave birth to my oldest and 17 when I gave birth to my youngest. The second pic is me at age 17, 28 weeks pregnant with my second child.

I’ve been struggling with my body image since I entered high school. I haven’t gained or lost a tremendous amount of weight, but I go through phases of extreme hatred of my body, and phases of happiness with my body. I’ve had issues being confident, but I’m trying!
