Curvy Girl 30 Day Challenge : 30 Days of Loving Your Body

plus-size-lingerie

Let’s DO IT for 30 days in a row! I asked a question on my Facebook page the other day asking my friends, customers and followers where they get their self-esteem and talk about heart breaking to read all of the women with ZERO self-esteem. And, some of them felt like it was a lost cause to ever have good self-esteem. I JUST CANNOT EVEN HEAR THAT.  There has got to be a way to help some for these women. So, let’s start by sharing 30 Things We Love about our Bodies.  1 post a day for 30 days. You can share it on my Facebook page :  www.Facebook.com/CurvyGirlInc   or on Instagram at  @curvygirllingerie   (Use the hash tag  #30daycurvy , too, if you want! )

One thing I have learned since I started blogging is that you just never know who it might help or might touch.  So, when you join this challenge, you’re doing it for you and remember, we also may touch or affect one person out there who really needs to see your post. So, share away and thank you for all of your generosity with all of your sharing and support on our social media pages.  (You might also enjoy our 21 Day Curvy Girl Challenge… but it’s a little more hands on.  :) )

Love, Chrystal    (Our online store is  http://shop.curvygirlinc.com  if you want to check it out.)  And, you can join our Curvy Girl Newsletter by texting us the word curvygirl to 22828 and become a Curvy Girl Insider. )

I almost cried when I saw this commercial on NETWORK T.V. this morning.  Watch it. STOP what you are doing. SERIOUSLY. It’s not perfect, but it’s beautiful.

This is on the Lane Bryant Website:

YOU are all kinds of sexy!

“Have you seen all this?” “I’m all kinds of sexy!”

Oh Lane Bryant, how I love you. Let me count the ways.

Would love some more women who are NOT hourglasses, but this is a good start, Lane Bryant. Would love to see some women who are a size 24, 26, 28, 30, too. Thank you!

Share your #imnoangel pics on our timeline on our Curvy Girl page.

Too Fat To Adopt A Child!

Did you know that perfectly fabulous people who want to adopt a child can be turned down based on their B.M.I.?  What kind of bullshit is this? To say I am hopping mad is an understatement. I can’t even think right now I am so furious. And, she is a size freaking 14. (Which, btw, in American she would be a part of the MAJORITY since 70% of American women are size 14 or larger.) So, that would mean that here in America only about 30% of very qualified, very loving, very generous people would be able to adopt if they wanted to. Acccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkk!  Pulling my hair out as I type. I wonder if this also happens in the U.S. or just in the U.K. where Donna lives.

Please can you comment on the blog here in the comments section if you have been turned down based on your weight or BMI?  This could potentially be helpful to have this information all in one place.

My friend Annalisa Hackelman shared Donna’s story with me today. Some of you may know Annalisa from a blog I wrote about her new episode of “Strange Love” which I blogged about last week. Her friend Donna is the person in this story.

“Size 14 Woman Too Fat To Adopt”  on the Mirror UK

Please share here in the comments section if you have also been turned down to adopt or foster adopt because you are too fat. I am hoping Donna will create a Change.org  petition so we can lend her our support by signing it.
