I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

A Look Back at 2012 - Fabulous Fatshion

I got this idea from tumblr.  Here is a college of some of my favorite outfits from 2012:And my favorite hairstyles:
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!
