Plus Size Model Ashley Graham Speaks About Body Confidence
In recent years there has been a movement towards accepting varying body shapes in the fashion industry, and plus size models like Ashley Graham are leaving their mark – she’s also the first plus size model to appear in Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2015. But Ashley didn’t always love her body, in fact, there was a time when she thought she was “ugly.”
According to Yahoo, Graham revealed her secret for maintaining a positive body image during a visit to Camp Pocono Trails, where she told campers that she had once felt, “disgusting” and “ugly.” But once she realized that her attitude was harmful, she became more self-accepting and learnt to love herself, flaws and all.
“I read in a book that, if I actually looked myself in the mirror and said, [‘I am beautiful, and I do have a great body,’] and meant it every day, it was going to happen. I started loving my body, I started working out and taking care of myself,” Graham confessed. It’s great advice, and something that we should all practise.
