It’s no coincidence that the blossoming of delight in my own fat body has bloomed since my discovery of the fat positive blogs on tumblr. I needed to see other humans taking delight in their fat bodies! I needed to see that it’s okay to be proud of your temple! It’s okay to show off your fat! I wish that I had seen fat bodies represented positively in media a long long time ago. I wouldn’t have had to grow up thinking mine was abnormal and wrong. I wouldn’t have spent 3 decades trying to make my body something it’s not. To every fat body I see, I thank you for showing up. I thank you for representing. I adore all of your shapes and sizes! You are beautiful!
