So, um… how do I say this…
I am not petite. Even at my smallest weight I wore a size 10 because of size of my hips and butt.
Shockingly, no one cares.
Well, except me.
No one else cares what my jeans size is. My family doesn’t care. My dog doesn’t care. Old Navy
with their vanity sizing doesn’t care. My friends don’t care. Red hair don’t care.
But, that part of me had a big impact on me for a long time… on where I’d glance first when I looked in the mirror in the morning, on how I felt about myself, on what kind of clothes I bought and more.
Luckily, I’ve come to appreciate my build. I also appreciate that similarly shaped women are more celebrated in the media. When I got an email to do a giveaway for a book called “My Big Bottom Blessing” I probably nodded at my desk. Yep, this is just right.
Today I am giving away a copy of My Big Bottom Blessing – How Hating My Body Led to Loving My Life.
Here is a video clip with the author, Teasi Cannon. I love that she references how the media impacts how we feel about how we look.
It’s a book about Teasi Cannon’s journey with her body and God.
The first line is, “Does this book make my butt look big?” So you gotta love that.
