The Real Body Con

Where does our body confidence come from?

This is something I have been thinking about a lot recently and I’ve come up with a couple of theories but no definite answers (in terms of my own body confidence of course) I really wanna throw this question out into the plus size community and hear some other views…

I went out on Friday night and ended up in a gay bay where I was invited up onto the stage by a beautiful drag queen, this is the point in the past where I would have shied away from all the eyes on me and politely declined, but this time I decided that, you know what…why not… I was up on stage laughing, joking and would you believe DANCING in front of a bar full of people.

Afterwards I was really proud of myself, I had so much fun and realised that it was an experience I would have missed out on if I thought too much about what people thought of me.
I don’t know if its just that Im getting older and I don’t care as much or that my confidence has gotten to the point where I wont let anything hold me back. The last year or two I have changed completely, I am very happy and love living my life… My body has changed a lot in the last couple of years and at this stage of my life I am at my happiest…

Ladies where does your confidence come from… Im very interested to know and I also think it will be beneficial for people to hear from others…
