My mother Melvinia was the strongest woman you could have ever met. She had unmatchable confidence and an attitude out of this world. At her heaviest she weighed in at 408lb and loved every inch of herself, If there was an insecure bone in my mother's body trust and believe she broke it on purpose. My entire childhood she did nothing but install endless amounts of confidence and self love into me. Traits that I never knew would be so important today. I am so privileged and honored to have a mother who not only taught me to love all of me genuinely but a mother who never tried to change me, and most importantly never ever displayed hate or dislike for her own body. It has shaped me into the woman I am today, because of her I have overcome all of my physical insecurities and have made it my duty to make sure that other women do the same.
