This is the first time I’ve ever taken photos of myself without any outer clothing on, at first I felt awkward and I was shaking but once I saw how the photos turned out, I felt nothing but pride.
I have only just started to love my body, and I’ve had good days and bad days, but today is a fabulous day! I feel amazing, sexy, and liberated and I wanted to share my body with everyone who follows this blog.
My name is Ellen, I’m 25, from Manchester, UK and I’m a size 24.
(I couldn’t get my head in any of the shots so here’s two photos!)
