Agreed, especially given that beauty is so very subjective. Success in modeling has little to do with beauty or confidence, but more so on a mix of marketing ability, presence and a pinch (or two) of pure luck dashed together with being in the right place at the right time.

Abby, if you're still reading (I see you're on timeout but I know some folks still read the forums even if they cannot post) my advice as a former BBW model is to listen to your inner voice. As I said above, beauty is subjective. Looks can and do change. The only one who can truly make you feel like crap is yourself. I too failed as a BBW model. Did that failure hurt? Hell yes. But I learned some very important life lessons as I failed. Some about others, but the most important things I learned were about myself.

I hope someday you longer feel like crap.
