This Couple's Bathing Suit Photo Is Going Viral for the Best Reason

© Instagram/a_body_positive_jazzy Being a different size than your husband doesn't mean you aren't beautiful.

If you've ever looked at a couple and thought, "wow, he/she is sooo much cuter than her/him," you probably forgot that you're judging actual people. And while you probably meant it as a compliment to the more attractive half of that couple, one woman has something to say about being on the receiving end of that judgement. 

Instagram user @a_body_positive_jazzy (awesome handle, BTW) posted an adorable photo with her husband last week and wrote about how she feels being a different size than her husband. 

Over the years this man has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body. I never understood why! • How could he love something that isn't "perfect"? How could a man who was "born fit" love someone like me! I don't have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I walk, hell if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps (lmao)!! But now I see I do have the "perfect" body!! Every roll, every curve and every stretch mark is put on me just perfect to make both of us happy!!! I love my body and I finally see why he does too!! • • Photo credit: @ryanwmedia • • • #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #everyoneisbeautiful #tummylove #youarebeautiful #aspiringmodel #aspiringplussizemodel #celebratemysize #curvysensedoll #confidence #lovemybody #lovemybelly #loveyourbody #selflove #summerbody #bikini #bikinibody #bodylove #bodypositive #bodypositivity #womenofallsizes #support #love #positive #plussize #positivity #plussizegang #positivevibes #youarebeautiful

"Over the years this man has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body," she wrote. "I never understood why! How could he love something that isn't 'perfect?' How could a man who was "born fit" love someone like me!"

If you're sitting there thinking, "Jazzy, he loves you because you're absolutely stunning," then I'm glad we're on the same page. But I'll let her handle it from here - she wrote that she realized all the things she would typical see as imperfections are just part of what make her, well, her.

"I don't have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I walk, if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps! But now I see I do have the 'perfect'"body!!" she wrote. "Every roll, every curve and every stretch mark is put on me just perfect to make both of us happy!!! I love my body and I finally see why he does too!!"

The post has gone viral, with over 58,000 likes and 2,000 comments, many from women saying they absolutely love her message and thanking her for being so honest.

Jazzy started her body positive journey back in May, when she decided she was done being ashamed of her body and constantly trying diets and exercise videos in an effort to change it. 

Like anyone else who attempts to send a positive message on the internet, Jazzy received some backlash from internet trolls. One commenter in particular wrote that just because she was "fat" doesn't mean she should advocate for being unhealthy, and her page was "shameful." Jazzy obviously had something to say about that. 

Earlier this morning I got this very negative comment! Starting this journey publicly I knew that I would get some negative comments and I TRIED to prepare myself for the day that they started. But when I saw this comment no lie it hurt! It stabbed me hard, harder then I thought it was going to! So I had to take a step back and think to myself .. why would someone be so hateful of another person! Why would they say such rude things. But then I figured it out! People like this hate on others because they are not happy with themselves! This person does not know me! They don't know that I am VERY healthy and WILL live for my kids! They don't know that I eat healthy, hike, go to the gym all the time and can most likely out lift them any day! Just because I'm a big girl doesn't mean I'm unhealthy and promoting being unhealthy! I'm simply promoting loving yourself the way you are! Never did I say unhealthy is the way to be. So for others that want to downplay me as a person and what I am trying to accomplish, go ahead leave your negative comment! They will only be used as fuel to my fire of promoting happiness!! • • • #youarebeautiful #positivevibes #plussizegang #positivity #plussize #aspiringmodel #allshapesandsizes #aspiringplussizemodel #everyoneisbeautiful #effyourbodystandards #effyourbeautystandards #confidence #celebratemysize #motivation #bodylove #beautiful #bodypositivity #bodypositive #positive #positivity #lovemybody #lovemybelly #loveyourbody #loveyourself #youarebeautiful #nonegativity #nostereotypes #iamblessed #thankful #tummylove #thickthighs #thunderthighs

"Why would someone be so hateful of another person!" she wrote in another Instagram post. "Why would they say such rude things. But then I figured it out! People like this hate on others because they are not happy with themselves! This person does not know me... They don't know that I eat healthy, hike, go to the gym all the time and can most likely out lift them any day! Just because I'm a big girl doesn't mean I'm unhealthy and promoting being unhealthy!

Let the haters hate, Jazzy, and keep doing your thing. Obviously, the rest of the internet is loving it.
