Fluffies is an article written girls and women. If God wanted us all to be Barbie Dolls he would have created us that way.

So what if you are a little fluffy. Everyone has something about themselves that they want to change, everyone does. In a recent study it was determined that 92% of young girls want to change something about the way they look. The other 8% didnít answer the question. Change is part of growing up and figuring out who you are. It is ok to want to change something but it cannot define who you are.
Your weight is not who you are. There is certainly more to you than numbers on a scale. People that care about you might encourage you to loose weight because of concern of your health. People love you because of your heart, not your weight. Fluffy or not they will love you just the same. Loosing weight is fine but donít let it control you. Shift your focus to your talents and abilities.
God has created you just the way you are for a reason. Every person is given talents. Being thin is not a talent. You may have a brilliant mind. Maybe you can write stories. Maybe you are a great friend and listener. Whatever God has given you is what you must focus on. Being skinny is not all it is cracked up to be anyway. Maybe they appear to ďhave it allĒ but they donít. Everyone has problems, even skinny people.
Measuring your self worth by your weight only stifles your creativity. Donít buy in to the worldís view. God says you are a child of the King, Royalty. So act like it. Feel like it. Be it.
Just because you are a little fluffy does not mean that you are not beautiful. Beauty is natural, whatever God gave you. If you are so concerned about your outward appearance then it is ok to try and change some things. Just donít be consumed by your weight. It is ok to just be you. Just go with what you do have. Find your strengths and go with it.
Get a cute hair style and show those big baby blue eyes. Donít hide your face behind your hair. Your eyes are the window to your soul, keep your window open. Get your ears pierced and wear pretty earrings. Donít try to hide behind makeup, use makeup to define your already beautiful features. Shine because of who you are.
Dress well. Donít try to dress like a super model. Nobody can wear that stuff. Dress like you, be comfortable. Never wear horizontal stripes (they donít help anyone) and always be clean and neat. Wear pretty colors. Find out what colors make you shine and go with it. Wear darker pants than tops. Wear cute shoes. If you like pink, wear it. Black is very elegant most of the time but use it elegantly. Be graceful.
Paint your fingernails and donít be afraid of color. Have pretty hands, it shows your elegance. Wear cute sandals in the summer. Color will make you feel good. If you act pretty you will be pretty.
Smile, laugh and speak softly. Wear soft colors of lipstick and gloss. Make sure your teeth are as white and clean as they can be. Always have sweet smelling breath. Beauty is in the details!
Have manners and etiquette. Etiquette is something that we donít hear a lot about anymore. Etiquette means to be charming, gracious and tactful. Charm cannot exist without manners. Being proper and courteous reflects a light of beauty. Etiquette is all in conducting yourself, no matter what social situation, with ease and smoothness. Be interested in other people, listen when they speak, be considerate. Practice manners and etiquette and before too long it will fit you like a glove. If you are interested in the subject of etiquette there is a wonderful timeless book that is a must have for your library, Emily Postís Etiquette.
Most of all be sweet. Sweetness is a virtue that most super models do not have. Donít be self-centered or try to attract attention to yourself. Just be sweet, kind and considerate. Sweetness is so pretty.
Pursue your dreams. The worse thing you could possibly do is to put off your life waiting to ďget thinĒ. Go ahead be fluffy and pretty and shine for Jesus. Discover your passion and be passionate about it. Follow your dreams. Do what you love and your beauty will come shining through. People are attracted to happy people. Just be happy with the beautiful fluffy child of God that you are and everything else will fall into place.
Everyone on the face of this earth has problems. Being a little fluffy is an obvious problem or so it seems to some. If you want to loose weight, fine. Eat low fat and drink water. Walk a little extra. Limit your sugar intake and never have second helpings. Always leave something on your plate. Make changes slowly and before long you will find that these new habits are better than the old ones. Do what you can but donít let it consume you. There is no reason to waste your life worrying about your weight. Worry will not shed a pound. Some people are heavy in their youth and grow up to loose all of that while they are busy pursuing their dreams and developing their talents. Some people are skinny as a rail as kids and grow up to have extremely wide hips. Either way, life is not about being skinny.
Some people are so unhappy and have no respect for the feelings of others. If these shallow, miserable people make fun of your fluffiness it is because they are trying to make themselves look better. Unkind people call attention to other peopleís problems in an effort to cover up their own. I sure had rather be a little fluffy than to be a brainless boob that has to hurt others to feel better about themselves. No matter what other people do just be sweet, kind and decent. You donít have to even respond to such heartlessness. It is hurtful but you are stronger than that. Actually, you just have to feel sorry for them.
So what if you are a little fluffy. Be soft and sweet and your beauty will shine. More than anything else God loves you just the way you are. It is so important that you love you too. If God calls you to change something about yourself, He will help you do it. Your job is to be young, have fun and pursue your dreams.
