Happy Birthday TO ME!

Today is my birthday and I share this photo now because when I was younger I wasn’t brave enough to do so. I’ve always had insecurities with how I looked because I never had a 6-pack or pecks like I was taught “sexy” men were supposed to have. However, when I was in high school and college I was much smaller than I am now but I was so self-conscious that I never showed my body. I stopped playing pickup basketball games for fear that I would be on the “skins” team. I was also ALWAYS overdressed on hot days at at the beach for fear of showing my man boob, jiggly stomach, and back rolls. Back then I also wore black t-shirts in the pool because I was ashamed and embarrassed of my body. At this point in my life I have finally learned to embrace my lumps, clumps, and bumps and I love who I am and hope that my confidence helps others to love themselves without fear or shame. Thats why I started this site! 🙂
