Dear CeCe: How do I Embrace my Tummy Fat?

July 1 2016 | CeCe Olisa

Dear CeCe,

I was looking at your pics and you wear the cutest outfits. I am working very hard to fall/grow in love with my body, specifically my stomach.

I notice you don’t hide your belly.

All of my outfits as a rule, must camouflage my belly. I don’t like how it protrudes and extends and shakes when I walk. But its a permanent part of me. Short of literally getting it cut off, it will remain with me. So tell me have you ever had an issue with this part of your body?

Thank you for your time!

Love ya,

Cheryl

Hi Cheryl!

How funny, I have two similar questions in my Instagram DM’s, with summer being here I think it’s a great topic. Trying to navigate loving our bodies and being honest about the parts we’d change if we could is tough, but totally honest and real soooooo I made an entire video for you!!

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to hide your tummy, but I won’t let you hide your whole body.

I’d love for you to actually not focus on your tummy, but focus on the parts of your body that you do love. You’ve got arms, legs, cleavage, shoulders etc. that you can embrace and show off. Why not start there?

Show skin in the ways that make you feel comfortable now and slowly but surely you’ll start to take other fashion risks and body confident decisions.

In the video I made for you I broke down ways that you can show other parts of your body and if you scroll down, I’ve got a few outfit options you might like this summer.

    We all do have problems with certain areas, but with time you learn to love all of you. It not easy and you fall back into I hate the way I look but then you look again say I am the most beautiful person and I love me. Even if you lose the weight you have to fix you inside your head by telling yourself you are beautiful I am loved and I love me, because you lose weight does not mean you loss the way you look at yourself. Love You Tegen

    Hi !!! I loved your video. You are lovely with and without that stunning make up tutorial. Anywho i have the same problem with my arms and other parts.one day when i was 19 i was so hot. I put on a tank top and kept it moving. My mom and sister hate their arms but i embrace mine it runs in the family my late nana gave it to us lol Its almost been 11 years. My stomach idk i have mixed feelings but will wear a short shirt and high waist jeans in a heartbeat. I think i am obessesed with dressing up i forget lol i am an interverted hour glass so my waist is like an inch or two wider than an average hour glass. My boobs are an issue because yes i dont see how large they are and everything i wear will instantly show cleavage lol i dress nice and enough to be modest in the correct sense but i love crops. Its a love hate thing with them. I love them but dont want them to be all people see. Im evenly proportionate so its bewteen hips and thighs or boobs in all i step out in well made clothes and i make them work. I try to be put together and even though some dresses make me look 12 months pregnant i am free and cool and shoes to match . We all have to go through trails and make deals with ourselves. Its how we represent us not others. Btw i love that dress from debs on you. Wear that look more ! We must love us before we allow others and we can love others.

    Great advice. Still not sure about belly out yet. Whatever I wear I have to be comfortable and like what I see in the mirror, otherwise I’m going to be self conscious and uncomfortabe all day. I don’t know what it will take for me to feel crop top or even <30 inches long comfortable. But at some point I'll just take the leap and wear it anyway (Martina McBride, "Do it Anyway") great song. Keep it moving lady. I love watching your journey in motion.
