My name is Nomfundo Lushaba,I am 23 years of age and I am beautiful.
I grew up as isiDudla, I have always been one and will never be petite or a size 32. I exercise, I eat healthy and NO I will not starve myself by eating tasteless food in order to loose weight so I won’t be considered weird/or an over eater who has little to no place on today’s society. I am healthy in my imperfect full figured body.
Being a nurse now I know that not all FAT is bad for you. I am comfortable with being chubby why shouldn’t you? Not all fat people are obese or unhealthy ,no one can judge a person’s health by his or her appearance.Your size or weight does not dictate your health or mean you are more prone to disease as majority of people think. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle exercising, eating a balanced diet and generally good habits, your curves are healthy and you are not a ticking time bomb.I love my full figured body,muffin tops,love handles you name it.
I am not perfect but have been perfected in my perfect imperfection. When I stumble and feel like nothing is going right I remember that God will never leave my side. I hear HIM whispering in my ear telling me to raise up, dust my self and put on the most stunning outfit and continue walking with my head high because I am beautiful no matter what people think or say.
With the photo shoot, I froze at first then the Diva in me came out. it helped to have a photographer who is a Diva herself and she helped me pick out my outfits and how to put my best foot forward. Thank you Charmain.
I am isiDudla,uMapakisha, ngiphethe I reverse yomhlaba and I am beautiful.
