Back in May I was asked by Cosmopolitan magazine if I would be in one of their features called ‘My body’s amazing because…’. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be featured in one of Britain’s biggest young female’s magazines?!
And then came the catch. ‘Would you be ok with posing nude?’ was the question. Ah. Right. Ok. Yes, I’d be fine with that.
I decided very quickly that I would do the shoot and feature and here’s why:
1) I love my body. It might not be as slim or as strong as others but it’s mine and I’m on a continuous hard journey to make the most of it
2) I want to help other women learn to love their bodies too because if the feature inspires even one other woman to look in the mirror and feel positive about what they see then I’m happy
3) This is my sticking two fingers up to all of the haters because if you don’t think I look good than you need your eyes testing. Yeah
And that’s it. No other reasons, simple. Oh, and I quite like being naked.
For those of a sensitive nature here’s a preview and to see the full feature and read more about my journey to fitness click through to Cosmo.
What do you think? Would you have posed nude?
