I Am Enough: Deunaka

Determined Deunaka

I've struggle all my life with my weight issues from the age of 8 years till now. My struggle with weight has been compounded by a society that sees the obese as something akin to lepers. We’re viewed as hideous, stupid, ignorant, loathsome and worst of all, worthless. For the first time in years I looked at myself in the mirror and saw a person not just a huge mound of flesh, but a real woman who's beauty is unseen by the actual eyes of society .A flower doesn't worry about the flowers next to it; it just blooms! As women we are always comparing ourselves, sometimes despite our best efforts, and it's hard to remember our own inner and outer beauty when presented with what seems to be a more beautiful, more attractive woman next to us, but alas  she may be thinking the same thing about us.

Everyone has bad days but becoming a permanent Debbie Downer should never be in the cards. If you hate it then change it...if not take some of that time and spend it learning to love yourself even your flaws. Barbie isn't

real and perfect people don't exist... 

I am an obese woman. I love my body but I also value my health. I am not delusional about what i need to do to remain healthy and fit but I ALSO know that i can be a fat girl AND be healthy. That is my goal, that is what I'm work on. But I will not betray my body image based off of society. ((Loving the skin I'm in with my confidence through the roof)). With my thunder thighs, hail damage/cellulite,kangaroo pouch tummy , back roll's and stretch marks that created a masterpiece that God had a vision for..

I love this so much. I was wondering if u wrote it, but when i seen "hail damage, kangaroo pouch" I knew u did. You have always exuded with confidence and I admired that about u. It takes a confident woman to say the things u said. Stay beautiful baby girl!
