There’s nothing better than a morning jolt of self-love to will us out of bed in the morning. So here’s this photo posted by singer Mar Ortiz pumping life through our veins right now.
When someone made the cool comment that Ortiz looked like she had shed a few pounds, instead of setting off celebratory fireworks at the thought of getting slimmer, she responded with the best selfie. She let everyone know that–shocker–she loves her body the way it is currently. And yes, that includes her “love handles” too.
She said this:
“Someone told me ‘Mar you’re losing weight….’ I said ‘Really? You think so? I eat a burger, fries and pizza like everyday…’ LOL Why does size matter? Big or small…. I love my LOVE handles! I don’t care about having abs or eating a salad everyday. I do believe in taking healthier days and balance. I #celebratemysize everyday! I love my curves and body. If I want to lose weight it will be a personal choice and it shouldn’t matter to anyone else but me. ???? #imnoangel#plusisequal#effyourbeautystandards#bigwomenbiglove”
Someone who doesn’t dedicate their entire life to getting a six-pack like Kendall Jenner? Imagine that.
We’re totally feeling this message. We want to put this message in a gift basket and deliver it to anyone who’s ever asked if we’re eating a salad for lunch because we’re dieting. Cheers, Mar.
