"Body love to me means that I will enjoy the body I have. I will actively use positive words of affirmation. I will not judge myself for losing and/or gaining weight. I will love myself through and through, enjoying each moment of life and not giving a jack mess what anyone thinks about my body ... because it’s my damn body."

Leah Messemore

Having a love and confidence for this amazing body that allows me to experience life and love those around me!"

“Body love to me is what my mother taught me. You have to love yourself first ... love the skin that you are in. If we were all the same, this world would be a boring place. Now I'm raising a daughter. I'm teaching her to love herself for who she is, no matter her size. Every inch ... every curve ... everything. You can be beautiful and sexy at any size."

Angela Twombly

"Body love is loving all of me, no matter what I see in the mirror. It is the way God made me. My sons love me no matter what, and I love my body. It created and carried two humans. It hurts sometimes when I push it, but that is to be expected. It took me a long time to love myself and accept me. I am real and so are my curves, no matter how big or small they are!"

Selena Browning

"Self-love is celebrating the skin I'm in. These thighs have carried me thousands of miles on my bike and raised thousands of dollars for cancer research. These arms have held newborn babies and people I love who are hurting. This belly has enjoyed meals with many from all over the globe and jiggled with delight over a million silly, wonderful things. This body is such a gift and gives me SO much to be grateful for. What more could a girl ask for?"

Daphne Pursley

"Body love is realizing that you are more than your body. You are more than what is seen to the world on the outside. You are what is in your heart, mind, imagination and soul. So don't waste your time with worries because you are perfect no matter what your body size or shape are. Love what you have and enjoy your life ... body, mind and soul. Love and luck."

Rage Valentine

“Body love means that you can be comfortable in any situation and any time, knowing you love the way your body looks to you. And not giving a *#@! what others think! I love my body now. I worked hard to get to where I am, and I'm not afraid of what I look like anymore.”

M'Lisa Elgin

Body Love Facebook Contest - M'Lisa Elgin - Curvicality Magazine
"Body love is saying yes I have thighs and tummy and a booty, but those are just more parts of me to love. Body love is knowing that I am more than my shape. More than the number on my scale. More than the pant size that people will judge me by. Body love is appreciating the strength of my body, the way it made, carried and delivered my children. The way it pushes and fights and even flaunts its stretch marks and dimples. It's power and love and more than anything. It's acceptance."

"Body love means loving yourself just as you are. Every curve, every dimple. It’s knowing that your worth is not dictated by a number on a scale. It’s uplifting other women when they feel less than."

Cynthia Ortega

"I've learned to appreciate my body even though I have a little hard time with my upper belly after being hospitalized for over a month and not realizing that I was diabetic ... I had to change my lifestyle. I still love myself, but in a healthy, happy way. ❤️ We just have to learn how appreciate and love every inch of ourselves! I see beautiful ladies on this page and I sometimes wish I could have the same confidence (I do, but not too much). That's my weakness. I've learned so much from being on this page. ❤️"

Cynthia Lopez

"Body love, to me, means embracing the body I'm in. All of my curves, dimples, stretch marks and flaws. After years of hating myself, I've finally learned that this is who I am, and I am proud of my body. After all, I've created beautiful lives, and that in itself is something to celebrate."

Evelyn Ceballos

Body Love Facebook Contest - Evelyn Ceballos - Curvicality Magazine
"Body love to me means that the number on the scale doesn't mean anything. Sometimes a person can be fit but unhappy, others can be plus-size and full of fun, laughter and they go for what they want. Sometimes society can tear you down because you don't look a certain way. It took me years to love my curves; and yeah, I wanna be healthier, but not a size 0. I love that I have curves, (a) butt (and) thick thighs that don't lie ... And most importantly, my husband loves every inch of me."

Denise Schorr Lee

Kimberlee Amber Haralson

Kimberlee Amber Haralson - Facebook - Curvicality Magazine
"Body love is just like any other 'love'. Some days it’s extra passionate when you’re feeling yourself. Others it’s comfortable like when you’re in old pajamas snuggled up with a book or your favorite show. There are days when you are frustrated and might carry a little extra bloat so nothing fits right! It’s emotional, like when you feel and see life growing inside of you. But most of all it’s acceptance. Accepting for what it is. Its flaws. Its uniqueness. Its reliability. It's yours.
