It's also all about my favorite thing that no one will tell fat girls: THAT FAT. GIRLS. CAN.
FAT GIRLS CAN: wear horizontal stripes, run marathons, dance, find love, have a family, do cartwheels, do yoga, wear a bikini, make art, model, find their dream job, cannonball, travel, kick box, fly, belly dance, sail, have hot sex (with the lights on!), pole dance, cosplay, lift weights, play the lead, save lives, rock climb... and be wildly successful.
And we do.
And we will.
WANT TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN? Here's how:
To participate in the #FatGirlsCan challenge:
1.) Think of something that someone said you couldn't do because of your body.
2.) Take a photo of you DOING that thing that someone said you couldn't.
3.) Tag that photo on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram with the hashtag #FatGirlsCan.
4.) Celebrate your awesomeness.
5.) Repeat #4 as many times as you like.
I'm going to revel in your awesomeness over here- and post pictures of you doing what they said you couldn't- ALL WEEK LONG until the actual publishing date of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls- October 27th. Inspire the shit out of me ladies (and everyone else!). You can- you totally can. And you already do. So document it with #FatGirlsCan!
I can't wait to show the world your power. I can't wait to celebrate your body and resiliency with you. I can't wait to show the world THAT WE CAN, GODDAMIT.
(Check out the Facebook album of all the things YOU'RE ALREADY DOING!)
Don't forget to check out my tour dates so you can come celebrate your magnificence with me IN PERSON! And if you haven't nabbed the book yet, you can still catch it here! I love you. Never forget.
Want to hear me speak? I'd love to visit your campus or come to your event! You can find more info here or you can just email me at themilitantbaker at gmail.com. Cheers!
