It’s really hard when you jump on the scale and the number is higher than you remembered it being. That’s a pretty awesome way to end up making yourself feel terrible about yourself, and it’s something that many women have dealt with over the course of their lives. However, gaining weight doesn’t have to mean that it’s the end of the world. Regardless of how much you weigh right now, even if you’re at the heaviest you’ve ever been in your life, you can still feel sexy. Sexy isn’t something that has a weight requirement. Many women, including myself, have felt terrible about their bodies when they were thin, only to gain weight due to lifestyle changes or health developments, and find that they like the body they have now a lot better than the thinner body that was always seen as better by society but that didn’t quite fit you. If you’re a woman agonizing over those extra few pounds, or even a kid thinking about dieting, as most girls do as young as elementary school now, this is for you. Here’s why it’s possible to feel the sexiest you’ve ever felt at the weight you are now, even if it’s the most you’ve ever weighed.
