MY THIGHS WILL ALWAYS HAVE SOME THUNDER
Hey guys 👋 so today I came across this article (link below 👇🏽) about a woman’s relationship with her thighs. To many this might seem ridiculous, but you have no idea how many battles I’ve had with my thighs since a very young age.
Since the age of probably 10 or before, I remember wearing shorts with my swim suits. My shorts wouldn’t be cute or short, they would be shorts long enough to cover my thunder thighs. I would be embarrassed to wear shorts out in public because I felt them ride up or simply expose my thighs. Skirts were also a hassle... I had to be really careful that skirts did not ride up or look trashy. Overall, it was just easier to give up shorts, skirts and cute swim suits with no shorts.
On a trip I took to Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 in 2014, I came across this curvy woman sitting on the beach with her two-piece swim suit drinking a Medalla (Puerto Rican beer). I admired her soooo much for having the confidence to proudly flaunt her curves with not a care in the world. I remember thinking to myself, one day (if I work hard enough) I’ll have the confidence to do that. I wouldn’t go as far as to wearing a two-piece, but at least no shorts to the beach. It took me a bit longer than anticipated (went through a divorce, lacked focus on the gym and diet) but last year I actually got the courage to take off my shorts at the beach. I had been working hard at the gym minimum 5 days a week. I was careful with what I was eating and for the first time felt proud of the effort I put into myself. My body was farrrr from perfect, it never really will, but I understood that as much as I worked out some parts of my body were there to stay. As a Latina, I have a thick body with wide hips, a big booty and those thunder thighs that I’ve slowly learned to accept and very much appreciate. #accordingtoerica #laredoblogger #thickfit #thunderthighs #latinabooty #latinabody #embracethickthighs #thickfit #thickandcurvy #workoutmotivation #workitgirl #trustthefitnessjourney #latinaempowerment #womenempowerment
