Leg Up

I’ve often been told in the past (and presently told) to dress differently or cover up certain parts of my body to accentuate my good parts and shamefully hide the bad ones — in particular my fat chubby legs.  But the thing is I love my legs and yes I love them even though they are chubby, fat and overweight… but my legs are also strong, powerful, thick, resourceful and beautiful.  And thanks to these legs of mine I am able to do my job as a nurse well.  I’m also able to run/walk that mile when I feel up to it and what I love the most about my legs is that they look great in a pair of sky high heels.  For all these things and more I’m grateful for my tree trunk limbs and instead of worrying that my legs look too fat for that skirt or dress I remember the words of one of my all time favorite body positive inspirations that gave me a fat leg up.
