“As a woman who hated my cellulite, I went on a mission to learn to love it.”
Buzzfeed writer Chrissy Mahlmeister posted an article after my own heart last week. She spent a week showing off her legs and not trying to hide her cellulite. As someone who has had cellulite since the age of 16, I completely empathize with the self-conscious awareness of every bump and ripple that peeks out from a pair of shorts or, even worse, shines in all its glory around a bikini bottom.

I found this post so incredibly uplifting and empowering. A huge part of it was that she was purposefully letting her cellulite show, and I didn’t even notice! I always have to remind myself that the things I notice and fuss over about myself, other people barely even notice about me. It’s about being happy with your overall self and not wasting time nit-picking every little imperfection. 🙂
