I have a lot more outfits from 2012 that I haven't posted yet, so stayed tuned for more. 2012 was a year where I became a little more comfortable with my body. In fact, I have become so comfortable with taking pictures of my body that I bought a full length mirror for my room. That way I won't have to sneak into my parent's bathroom!
I went to hear Hanne Blank, who is the author of her new book, The Unapologetic Fat Girl's Guide to Exercise and Other Incendiary Acts, speak at Charis tonight and I was inspired. I was inspired to get moving, to accept my body, to do what makes me happy, and to tell people to "get out of my way" if they don't like it. I loved her message that all people of all sizes deserve respect and are worthy. As she says, "There is no wrong body." In other words, "Every body is a good body!" I'm going to start repeating that to myself when I feel down about my body.
I look forward to sharing more pictures with you this year of my outfits and hair styles. Blank is right-my body deserves respect and is worthy of people taking notice, even if I am fat-because I am fabulous too!
