The photo below has popped up all over social media and the blogosphere. I spent awhile trying to find where it originated from. The nearest I can tell it’s from the website Stop Hating Your Body and the model’s name is Natalie. I wonder if Natalie knows how inspirational she is? She has encouraged many women to stop the self-hatred and start embracing who they are! A group of women from the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs community decided to create their own versions of Natalie’s photo. I was so moved by their courage I also stripped down and participated. I hope these photos serve as a reminder that a clothing size should never dictate beauty or self-worth. We are all glorious and this is Cardboard Courage!
