Growing up, more specifically in my adolescent years I did not like my legs๐Ÿ˜ญ, I have fat legs the type my secondary school mates call “Yam Legs” “hehehe“, I literally used to get teased (teased and pissed too at that๐Ÿ˜ญ). Fast track to university days, my social circle widened,new environment more people e.t.c. I saw slim , nice , great legs “Oh! how i hated my fat yam legs ๐Ÿ™„. When conversations tilted towards body structure, trust me I always had to list my preference without being asked, I would tell you I love my hands ” I meaaan I am absolutely in love with my hands” but my legs no oh! “mba!, ko jo!“.

Fast track to maybe 300 level or 400 level in the university I started getting comfortable with my legs but “in love?” naah! that was a different journey entirely. Most of the time I am on casuals (tees and jean) and even before the lockdown I rarely expose my legs when going to work but on the days I do, a colleague literally calls me hot legs๐Ÿคฃ and queries why I do not wear skirt or dresses more often๐Ÿ˜‹.

On the 8th of May, 2020 at about 1.00am, I looked at my legs and I fell in love with them, then I remembered and reflected on the journey of 12 years it took to get here and I became super thankful. Unfortunately these legs are flawed and scarred I mean badly scarred ๐Ÿ˜ƒ but hey! they are hot and beautiful still and they are a blessing.

Absolutely in love with this beauty๐Ÿ’™

What part of your body are you not comfy with, got any?. From a deeper perspective, what part of your life are you guarding jealously in a pair of jean trousers that you have not grown to accept as part of you and your story, maybe just maybe you should take some time to look at that part again and come through a process of acceptance and gratitude and in the long run maybe love.

I love this shot in particular what do you think?

P.S: Viva La Vida

  1. The picture of your feet is nice. A picture showing your โ€œlegsโ€ would have passed across the msg better. Anyways I guess hot feet and a great message..Well done

  2. Amazing dear.
    Many times we bother ourselves with the things we cant change, and thereby loose sight of the good things we have beyond that one subtle thing…
    Whether it will look nice or otherwise you might just need to change your point of view.
    I remember I didn’t usually like my long lone face. In fact i didn’t like taking pics with my straight face facing the camera and it haunted me for sooo lon that yo wouldn’t we me risking pictures I public or group pics or a selfie with someone outside ๐Ÿ˜ข. But after a while i grew in the understanding of self acceptance and ‘seeing uniqueness out of what other will tag seemingly “bad”.
    Hence, I changed my view by taking side shots and the smile comes out so amazingly, exquisite, alluring an infectious i must say ๐Ÿ˜†.
    Now, I love both, and surprisingly everyone does.
    So i would add that “all we need to do is *Change perspective*, and we would think differently, see differently and feel differently..

    Greater strides sea Tolu ๐Ÿ’•

    1. So I don’t know whether to laugh or be teary ๐Ÿ˜‚. It’s interesting to know that you went through a process like this because the Seun I know takes pictures liiiikeรจee yooo in one day the least is 10 shots I mean look at how far the journey of self acceptance has brought you and finally to a destination of love. You clearly get this “Perspective” is all we need and is what I’m trying to build here too. Thank you darling ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’—


  3. Okay! I feel insecure with my legs also, I like to wear jean or a long dress or free flowing skirt because.. Hairy legs!.. I don’t think I’ve really come to accept them yet..but then what can I do..

    1. ๐Ÿ˜‚ hii there han. Been there done that I still do not wear a skirt or dress often right so I get you but you may need to go through a journey of acceptance and like Annie said yam legs in your case hairy legs are better than no legs. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—


  4. Yam legs are still better than no legs…lol
    At some point,I also wanted less fat legs but later I had another challenge to focus on and that was ACNE.The pimples and spots on my face gave me serious concern,I spent a lot just to find a remedy.Eventually I even became an unregistered skincare therapist as a result of research.Though the face isn’t perfect yet but when I remember how it was years back I’ll keep saying thanks to God.

    1. Awwwww Annie. I totally understand the struggle and I must say I can see the freshness of the face. It’s a journey and I’m glad that you are now thankful. P.S: Thank you for sharing with me ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— and yes yam legs are better than no legs so thankful are we.


  5. Interesting read! But for as long as i’ve known you your legs have always been straight na. Can’t even imagine those legs ever been yam at some point asper they look too straight and hot to me.

  6. Growing up I didn’t really like my lips. At that time I thought they were big and admired people with small lips as theirs were really cute. Years later, things changed, became more comfortable and now in love with them. ps, my lips are now one of my favourite part of my body.

  7. Thanks for giving us something fresh and relatable always ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone loves to feel appreciated..even if the imperfections are there, we just have to fall in true love with our own body. After reading I asked myself If I have any part of my body I’m not comfortable with… and I was like “what? Do I look like a Model…”Oga! you make sense dieee ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
