A body-positive blogger has spoken out about what it's like to be dating someone who is visibly fitter than her in an honest Instagram post, and anyone who has felt insecure about their body compared to their partner's can probably relate.
"Over the years this man has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body. I never understood why!" Jazzy wrote.
"How could he love something that isn't "perfect"? How could a man who was "born fit" love someone like me! I don't have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I walk, hell if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps (lmao)!!
"But now I see I do have the "perfect" body!! Every roll, every curve and every stretch mark is put on me just perfect to make both of us happy!!! I love my body and I finally see why he does too!!"
She shared a beautiful photo taken by Ryan W Media of them walking on the beach together, looking every bit the perfect couple.
Her message is one that lots of women will identify with, as many pressures are put on women to look 'perfect' and be incredibly fit and healthy to attract a partner.
Since posting the photo, she has attracted thousands of messages of support and also people trying to tear her down about her weight.
One commenter wrote, "Love this!!! Thank you for your words and self love. Walking through my journey. Sometimes I hate my body because I think others hate it. I need to love my body who cares about any one else"
Another said, "We all deserve someone's love, no matter how many curves our body has. Love wins against everything :) I wish all the happiness"
She shared a follow up post captioned, "Never do I think I have to explain myself to anyone but I just have to say this man stole my heart 14 years ago and still today he love me!! ALL OF ME!!! Now that I truly love myself I can enjoy life with my amazing husband and kids!"
Just another beautiful example of how love doesn't conform to stereotypes, and everyone should be comfortable in their own skin!
