15 Confident Quotes That Will Help You Learn To Embrace Your Curves And Love Your Healthy Body — As Is
Quotes, Self

Actions speak louder than words. That means, instead of constantly looking in the mirror and thinking to yourself, "Why do I have curves," go to your closet, whip out that tight dress and embrace every inch of your body.

There is nothing wrong with having a little extra junk in the trunk. Just like there is nothing wrong with being a size 0 or a size 12.

Living a life where being ashamed of your body is the norm is not a way to live – look to your curves as a powerful tool.

You are strong and can fill out those skinny jeans perfectly. All sizes are created equal, so just because your friend may be three sizes smaller than you doesn't make her body any better. They say we are always wanting what we don't have, but maybe what we need is right in front of us. Your body is beautifully made.

I know practicing self-love is easier said than done; we want to embrace our curves but can't help comparing our bodies to the models on Instagram or Victoria Secret ads.

A Victoria Secret model's body is beautiful in its own way. Your body is built wonderfully and there is no room for comparison in your mind. The only thoughts that should float in are, "I'm hot, I'm worthy, and I'm deserving of every curve on my body."

I know how hard it can be to accept your body for what it is; I am a 5 foot nothing, curvalicious woman who sometimes wishes she didn't have to go three jean sizes to fit her thighs into her pants. But, once those jeans are on I feel powerful, regardless of size.

Here are 15 confident quotes about loving you body, loving your curves and living a healthy, happy lifestyle to remind you how perfect your curves are. Just in case my speech wasn't motivation enough.
