So great. You always manage to turn a not so good day upside down :)
Not at all easy.
Truer words have never been spoken.
So true... it's hard but we are stronger because of it. :)
I so needed this today. Just this morning my mother called me trashy for wearing a short tight dress and said I am sensitive about my weight.
can we be friends lol!!
This....is not just exclusive to fat girls. I feel like most girls suffer this. Most girls I know definitely have - tall, short, thin, fat, angular, curvy, whatever. It's an excellent reminder for all of us. Thank you.
Love this, Love YOU. Thanks a bunch -- you made my day. New fan.
Doubt is a part of being human. There is no person that doesn't have some doubt, sometime, about something and you are right to say not to succumb to it when some fool says something negative about your image. But, fat is fat, whether you're a man or a woman and being a fat man, I really appreciate what you say. Thank you.
LOVE THIS so much.
So hard to hear this from people. They think they're helping and I swear I want to smack the crap out of them. Makes me feel guilty. You are so correct in what is written above. Just bookmarked your blog on my top sites! :)
Omg, I just found your site and I lurveeeeeeeeeeeee your spirit...you are confident, sexy, intelligent, articulate and very encouraging. As a Bbw myself I know where you are coming from and your statement is so true!It isn't fat people that hate themselves, it is the people who make nasty comments like what you mentioned above that hate what is inside THEM! Otherwise why make a degrading comment in the first place?????..get the hell on! I have so made you a favourite on my pc.
Usually when somebody tells me I'm fat i just laugh at them. I laugh and most of the time people just walk away or get really pissed. My mom's a big girl and she still got the hot guy that her friends all oogled(her words, not mine) and I was raised to belive that everybody is beautiful in their own way. When my older brother became one of the people who would constantly make fun of big girls, you wouldn't belive the shit he got thrown his way from my parents, me and my older sister. Never had a problem with myself and as far as my experience goes: all the guys who are worth your attantion are the ones who just don't give a fuck and are the ones who enjoy being with a big girl. Someone who they are not afraid to break when it gets a bit mor passionate in bed and has a body with something on it admire, appart from a mind that's able to focus on more then counting calories and calculating how much time they have to spent in the gym to burn those.
It's nice to see someone make positive comments about weight and body image without feeling the need to drag skinny girls through the mud. (A la "REAL women have curves.") Thank you.
Ok I think I'm in love with you and in love with this site! We curvy gals need more of this encouragement on a daily basis. The world needs more amazing women like you!
Jes ... thank you! I love who and what I am more and more from the positivity of you, my evolving self and just self-love. Recently, the one I thought was my soul mate, told me he loved me but was not 'in love' with me, because I am too big for his tastes. This is a guy I had a primal attraction to when I met him 9 months ago. He is HIV positive, looks 20 years older than his years (diplomatically, a 'seasoned' life), takes anti-anxiety meds, has a paunch among other things. YET, there is a tough vulnerability in him (no, I do not need to rescue him) that resonated throughout me. I love him. I saw only ... his soul. He chose not to see me ... beyond my exterior. Today, in particular I came to you to give me strength and support. It is what it is. I wish him no harm. He spoke his truth. I appreciated his honesty.I walked away from this man, with grace and self love firmly intact. But, as you said, sometimes, sometimes, it is hard to be a 'kick-ass' body image warrior. Jes, Babygrrl ... Namaste!
