Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl, get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him.

This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match.

We are not our bodies. I am not defined by titles like ‘curvy’ or plus size, Drew is not defined by ‘Mr. Six Pack.’ At the end of the day, we are the girl and the guy who fell in love and started dating in college after  lost a bet that led to a first kiss – the rest is history.

So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!)

I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you!”
