As a teenager, I had an unrealistic view or expectation of what I wanted my body to be. I wanted to be stick thin which was just never going to happen. I had curves, I had what would be called an hourglass figure, my hips are the same width as my shoulders and my waist is the smallest part. My grandfather called it womanly. But I never appreciated it, I looked up to these tiny little slips of celebrities and thought why couldn’t I be like that? As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more at peace with my body, I still don’t love it completely but it’s not completely hideous either. And as this has happened I’ve been to look at celebrities who have similar body shapes to my who I can aspire to be like. Much more realistic goals. So here is my list of body role models – all who are beautiful in their own ways and not uber skinny but are healthy…..
Khloe and Kim Kardashian: Both have naturally curvy figures, they are healthy and beautiful and don’t look like starving twigs.
Jessica Simpson: The girl has copped a lot of flak in the past over her body – being too curvy then being too thin then too curvy again. I love this photo of her, she’s curvy but toned and happy.
Kelly Osbourne: Kelly has really turned her life around and when she was unhappy with her body she did something about it – the right way.
