My name is Quincee and I am 19 years old. As a young girl I was always super skinny all the way up to my freshman year. I never had a big problem with my weight. I randomly gained then lost then gained but it was never out of control. When I was 14 I began being insecure and really juge mental of myself. I felt I wasn't "pretty" enough, or that my stomach wasnt "flat" enough. I had stretch marks on my thighs, my butt, and no shape to my body. I have always wanted to be a model but I didnt feel I was Skinny enough and I didnt look like the supermodels. I thought you had to fit a certain look and nothing less to be considered in the modeling world. When I found out about plus size modeling, I felt hope of being accepted one day. I am not Plus size but every plus size model that I saw in the magazines and on TV inspired and showed me that all shapes and sizes are accepted. Most people think if your not "Fat" or "too thick" how can you be insecure about your body. Well insecurity is how you FEEL about yourself. All the negative things you burn into your mind about how you're not good enough or you don't look good enough for someone or something. I learned to Love myself and my body by setting goals, being tired of not loving myself and remembering Im a good hearted person. Everyone will judge you whether your doing good or bad in life so don't look for others acceptance of you. No one is perfect and we all have our own life stories. you're the only person who can judge yourself and fix the problems you have. If you settle for all the negative vibes around you then that's all you'll ever be. So think positive, do positive, and BE Positive. Live a happy healthy life. And Love you for you. Flaws and all.
