YES, I named my thighs after someone who has always inspired me, THE Tyra Banks (I hope she won't be offended) because just like her, I want to empower women and help them feel comfortable and confident on the inside and out. I remember watching Tyra's show when I was a little girl and it's where I first heard the words FLAUNT & FLAWS. I also remember her telling the audience to be FIERCE and FLAWESOME and that it's important to love yourself. It's sad that it took me this long to really truly accept it and live by it. But just like any struggles, it's a journey that only made me stronger.

I know all too well that I'm not the most confident person in the world and I'm still in the process of accepting all my flaws. It took a while to get where I'm at today - it was a struggle, a daily battle. In fact, I used to wear jeans a lot before because I wanted to hide my thunder thighs because I was so embarrassed (being constantly criticized by the people around you doesn't help) and I just felt so ugly. But, that doesn't matter anymore because I've reached a point where things like that doesn't affect me anymore. Sure, I still have my "I feel so ugly" or "I feel so fat moments" but, don't we all? Instead of letting my insecurities take over me, might as well get over my insecurities. I know it's easier said than done and sometimes it's really difficult when you look in the mirror and not like what you see. Just remember that you're not the only one who feels that way. Ask yourself, do you really want to waste and live your life by letting your insecurities affect everything you do? Or do you want to just accept your flaws and live the life you want worry-free? It's your decision! Once you start accepting your flaws you'll be able to see life in a different perspective!

I don't have a thigh gap, I may never have a thigh gap and that's okay. Thigh gap or no thigh gap nobody can ever make me feel less beautiful (and sexy) ever again.

"Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It's about accepting all of yourself."
- Tyra Banks
