Woman Says She Can’t Believe Fat Wife Landed a 6-Pack Husband—Her Response Is Perfection

From the sexy women on billboards to the Photoshopped thighs on the cover of Cosmo, our society generates millions of messages a day that scream, “You’re not good enough.”

Body positivity is SO much easier said than done.

We all internalize insecurity in our own ways, but a standard of bodily perfection particularly seems to loom over women who are told in hundreds of subtle ways every day that “thin = beauty,” that “skinny = worthy,” and “flawless = enough.”

It doesn’t take a mathematician to figure out that those equations don’t exactly add up. For nobody is flawless — and let’s face it, there are plenty of thin people who are downright rotten to the core on the inside, so equating that to beauty is nonsensical as well.

Body positive advocate and self-acclaimed “goal digger” Jenna Kutcher is all too familiar with the criticism that comes along with having a less-than-perfect bod by cultural standards.

I was in the bathroom stall when I heard them chatting. As I washed my hands, I asked them how old they were. ✨ They were 21 and out for the night, I smiled and said, “Oh, I remember 21!” One girl asked, “What advice would you give your 21 year old self if you could go back?” ✨ I told her: I would stop hating myself because it would never make me happy, to have fewer friendships that were deeper, to be kind to everyone, for battles are being fought, that hurt people, hurt people, and to wait for the man who loved me for who I was and who I would become. ✨ We walked out of the bathroom and @kickingitwithkutch pulled me in for a kiss. She smiled and whispered to me, “Is he the one you waited for?” I grinned and nodded yes, he’s the one. ✨ What advice would you give your younger self? Let’s be the people we needed back then.

So much so, that she’s even received messages from people who say they can’t believe a full-figured woman like her could land somebody as attractive as her 6-pack husband, Drew.

But rather than recoiling into shame and a state of self-loathing, Jenna uses the criticism as fuel to encourage other women to be their fearfully and wonderfully made selves.

She responded to one Instagram follower’s hurtful comment in a viral post that is sending a powerful message to women everywhere:

“Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback.

Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him.
