  1. Emme - I have always loved what you put out in the world. You are empowermentx10! Love this quick quiz - it is a good gut check. After spending many years hating certain parts of my body, I've learned to love them. And each day I choose to love those parts I don't like (my arms, my sun spots, etc.), the less I see of them. The perceived ugly in my head gets smaller and smaller and I just see me - the real, pretty me.

  2. I am a bbw that has some parts I would like to change, but all in all I am happy with what God has given me to work with. I am happy to just be me! :)
