Body Love by Bo Abeille, September 25th 2015

I’ve been nearly every size. I was a tall, chubby kid, a size 14 by grade 9, and steadily gained weight until my early 20s, where I maintained a 22-26 for about a decade.

In 2010 I lost over 100 pounds and, at my slimmest, was a size 8. Over the past year I’ve gained a few pounds and a size or two, I’ve also started exercising regularly and can sometimes stand on my head! I’ve developed and maintained a vegan diet, and learned to cook with ingredients and spices I never knew existed.

I have loved my body at every single size, forgiving the usual pre-menstrual bloat frustration, or usual hormone or health emotions. I was very proud of my weight loss, happy to feel healthier and more in control, and excited to have a different shape & size to play with, but when I was big, I fucking loved my body. I had GIANT boobs and a puffy tummy that made Su swoon. When I dressed up I looked like a gorgeous cream puff, just pale bosomspace and healthy pink cheeks. At my slimmest I could shimmy into tiny skirts and they laid delightfully over the swell of my tight little bum. I discovered a beautiful bone structure beneath my beautiful full face. I cut my hair short because I never thought I could pull off short hair when I was bigger, which of course isn’t true, it was just a personal preference, and exciting to try something new.

I can describe to you, in lusty detail, an outfit I adored at every size. My size 14 homecoming dress from 1995. My size 22 corset-style top from Penningtons that I treated myself to for my 27th birthday & was the piece I was saddest to part with when I lost weight. My size 10 polka dot party dress. My size 20 hoodie that was the perfect shade of pink & I used to wear when I was sad & wanted to feel extra pretty. My size 26 tank-top collection from the summer of 2005. My size 16 dress that I inherited from Su when she also lost weight. My size 24 velvety top that I wore the day I met Su. My size 8 flippy little skirt that I’ve been wearing for 4 years and still defiantly wear even though I’m 37. My size 18 dress collection that was a little too tight & I didn’t care & would wear to Rocky Horror in the 90s. My size 12 vintage dress that used to be too big on me but now it fits perfect & makes me look like a brunette Joan-From-Mad-Men. Every size!

I’ve loved me and the unique beauty that is my body, no matter what. I’ve enjoyed food, exercise, fashion, and really celebrated the way I looked at each size. There have been disappointments at clothing that I’ve grown too slim or too curvy or too muscled to wear, but delights at clothing that fit just right. It’s something about me that makes me very proud – that I’m healthy, strong, and unashamed of how I look, no matter my size.

Celebrate yourself, take good care of yourself, and love yourself, no matter what your size. No shame, you sweet lovely creatures.

Bo’s 365 Photo Project (Days 198-211)

September 3rd, 2015|Categories: Bo, Erotica, Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I started doing a 365 Photo Project on Flickr and Instagram and Tumblr. Every day for one year, I’ll be taking a self portrait. I share an image each day on Flickr, as well as Outtakes on days where the shoot goes well. I also share the image (sometimes an outtake if the original image is too naked) on Instagram and every image on Tumblr. Message/add me if you’d like to follow my progress, or if you’re also doing the project, or feel inspired to start one yourself.

#YogaWithBo

September 1st, 2015|Categories: Bo|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Hello my loves!

I’ve been doing yoga challenges through Instagram & YouTube for the past few months & it has been so much fun! I’d like to integrate my yoga/pilates practice progress onto the site, and decided to start by sharing a lovely yoga challenge I’ll be doing in September.

Instagram users @beachyogagirl & @kinoyoga are hosting a pose challenge called #BasicYogaMix, sponsored by @aloyoga. Every day for the month of September users do an assigned pose & share their result on their own Instagram. Pose challenges are an excellent way to check in with your body and make sure you’re doing a pose correctly, zero on on certain areas, and connect with friends for encouragement and tips. If you follow the hosts on Instagram, each day they’ll give a tutorial and offer variations for the daily pose. You can read more about the hosts, and purchase a more in-depth program on their site Yoga Challenge.

Join me on Instagram and add to our little community of yogis! I’m doing this challenge this month with Instagram users @consumewarily, @poetesss, and @kimbugly. Respond to one of my #YogaWithBo posts on Instagram if you’d like to join us! I’m also considering starting a Facebook group for us to share pictures privately before sharing them with the masses. At the end of each week, I’ll post a recap with my poses, as well as a reminder for people to join in. You can join any time, or do any number of days. Let’s have some yoga fun together!
