5 Bad Habits to Kick: Self Love Edition

As a “bigger girl” I have always had self-love issues. I would constantly make fun of the way I looked so that others couldn’t do it first. My excuse for everything was “because I’m fat”. I would always wear black and I never really believed in myself. All of that stops now. I have been going through a lot of changes recently and have decided that it’s time to love myself first. I need to kick those old self-hate habits. This is going to be tough at first, I know, but it has to be done. If you are someone that needs a little wake-up call, then this post is for you. I hope that you can relate to some of the things that I am going through, and change them with me.

  1. I am going to stop feeling bad for being my size. How can I expect anyone to love me if I don’t love myself for how I look?
  2. I am ditching the clothes that make me look “skinny”. Today is the day that I am going to strut my stuff in whatever I feel like. I have recently purchased a few crop tops that I never thought that I could ever wear as a “fat girl”. Guess what? I don’t give a fuck anymore. I look gorgeous no matter what.
  3. I am going to stop telling myself that I can’t do something because of my size. I can do anything that I put my mind to. I just have to want it.
  4. I am going to stop making fat jokes about myself. I am hurting myself more than anyone. It’s not healthy, especially when I start to believe that the jokes are true.
  5. I am going to stop caring about what others think of me. I am going to start living and enjoying my time on this Earth. There are a million other things that I can be doing with my time, and I need to stop wasting them on being self-conscious about myself.
Loving myself is the first step to happiness.

Torrid

If you have been following me or my blog for some time now, then this should come as no surprise that Torrid is my first favorite store. They are a great company, I love the way all of their pieces fit my body, and they have so many different styles. Every time I walk into the store, the ladies all make me feel so welcome! I just can’t get enough, they are a little on the pricey side, but the quality is worth the money.

Charlotte Russe+

Some people don’t know this, but Charlotte Russe has an incredible plus size section! I always find all sorts of great pieces there, along with shoes, jewelry, and hats! Their pieces are more trendy and for those that are willing to wear off the shoulder tops. I also love the quality of their pieces.

Forever 21 Plus 

This store must be everyone’s favorite store! The Forever 21 here in Bakersfield is huge! I can see why; they have amazing prices, they have soo many options, and they cater to so many different styles. I can find just about anything there. I am in love! Did I mention that they have an amazing price point? Oh, yes I did hehe.

Target

Target has some amazing pieces that are very comfortable! I am in love with their plain T-shirts! They also have the most amazing dresses, so adorable! And who doesn’t love target?? Just the thought of eating popcorn while shopping gets me excited.

Ross Dress for Less

If you have a Ross, I strongly encourage you to stop in and check out what they have available. They have amazing prices, they have comfortable clothes, and also cater to so many different styles and sizes. I find items in there as low as two dollars. I love fashion, but I also love saving a buck or sixty if I can.

 

If you have made it to the end of this post, this I reward you with a virtual high five! Thank you for sticking around. If you have any recommendations for me, I would love to read them in the comments! I am always looking for new places to try!
