We have so much time for this. A simple snap of this beautiful couple is going viral and people need to see why!
Jazzy, a body positivity advocate and aspiring plus size model, has spread inspiration across the globe after a photo of her and her husband has gone viral.
The wife and mother of two, is sharing her message of loving her body for exactly how it is, and tbh, it's contagious!
A few days ago, she shared this photo with her Instagram followers and since, it's been liked by more than 64K people.
Over the years this man has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body. I never understood why! • How could he love something that isn't "perfect"? How could a man who was "born fit" love someone like me! I don't have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I walk, hell if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps (lmao)!! But now I see I do have the "perfect" body!! Every roll, every curve and every stretch mark is put on me just perfect to make both of us happy!!! I love my body and I finally see why he does too!!
We 👏 are 👏 here 👏 for 👏 this 👏.
Speaking to the Huffington Post, Jazzy opened up about the negative impact her past perception of her body has had on her life.
"Over the years my negative body image has held me back from enjoying life with my husband and kids and I was finally fed up with hiding from the world," she said. “As one of my posts said, I stood in the mirror and truly looked at myself. Before I couldn’t even stand to see myself, so to be able to get naked and stand in front of the mirror and just look at my body was a huge first step for me. Since then, I have made steps such as buying my first two-piece bathing suit, wearing it to the pool and to the beach and learning to stop judging myself.”
As per (unfortunate) usual, the photo has received its fair share of negativity, however, we have been thrilled to see that the majority of commenters were sharing nothing but love, support and kind words of encouragement!
"Love this! You are so beautiful. Having a rough day beating myself up about my weight and saw this. Thank you for posting this. You are such an inspiration," one commenter wrote.
"Positively beautiful and so inspiring! I could learn a thing or two from you! Shine on, shine on! 🙌🏼" wrote another.
Yes, yes and more YES!
