When considering what to name my business, the word "worthy" kept coming to mind. Most women who are size 12 and up don't feel worthy of so many things. It is my mission through providing a personal and positive shopping experience for women to build up how you feel about yourself. Nothing about shopping with Worthy is discouraging or frustrating but rather an empowering experience to help you love your body. Our bodies are our vessels that carry us through life and is responsible for every experience you will ever have in life. Cherish it, love it, and dress it in a worthy way.
I have been overweight my entire life. I never felt that I was worthy of a lot of things, especially wearing items that brought attention to myself. But, I loved clothes and fashion. How could I wear clothes I loved without hating my body? It was simple...stop hating your body. I had to stop thinking about the body I wish I had and accept the one I'm in. I admit, all of that is much easier said than done, and it was a long journey to get to where I am today. My story includes a time in my life when I was 50 lbs. heavier than I am now and also a time when I was 20 lbs. lighter. At every weight, I was never happy with my body. I had to realize that it wasn't about any number I would ever see on the scale but about all the thoughts swimming through my head. Once you get the negative thoughts out and start building positive ones, the number on the scale didn't matter so much.
Only you can figure out what works for you and what makes you happy. But, no size or number will ever be a true factor in your happiness. Feeling healthy, having supportive friends, and loving your character are much more important. Worthy is about helping you discover that clothes can reflect that inner joy, and you deserve a shopping experience that is unique to you and your body.
