“You can be accepted, loved or valued at any size”

Such a strong and personal message from one of my favorite and unique models, Christina Marie Boudreau (size 42 EU, 12 US), from Heffner Management on Facebook:
“At twelve years old I believed the lies of the media. Which told me that if I were thin, then I would be accepted, popular, loved, beautiful, and valued. After 7 years of eating disorders, I have seen girls at 80 pounds with tubes in their arms, who don’t feel beautiful or valued. In addition I have also seen curvy confident women who are free because they have trained their minds and hearts to love themselves despite societies standards of beauty. Take it from me girls, you CAN be accepted, loved or valued at any size. BUT, you cannot expect others to love you, if you haven’t first learned to love yourself.”
