Plus Size Model Struts Her Stuff To Promote Self Acceptance

Posted: Updated:

A woman in Hollywood is almost baring it all in order to promote healthy body images.

Amani Terrell says she lives in a city where being thin is "in"; however, Terrell wants to show that you can be beautiful no matter what the scale says.

Terrell explains, "I came up with this idea because I live in Hollywood and there's this mass hysteria of perfection in this town. There's a misconception that big women have low self-esteem. I don't have low self-esteem."

She was strutting her stuff on Hollywood Boulevard Monday in a pretty bikini and many people loved seeing her confidence on display.

"I'm 260 pounds. I know I do need to lose some weight. However I still love myself regardless," says Terrell.

There were only a few naysayers but Terrell says it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is she loves herself and it's afraid to say it!
