curvesappreciationsociety asked: i understand your sentiment over the cover of Shape magazine, but it IS a fitness and healthy magazine. but that doesn't mean it has to coincide with being curvy. you can have abs and be curvy, you can firm your thighs but still have a well rounded booty. this isn't a 'us versus them' kind of thing. it's about fitness, and some people are just really into it, that's...

BODY PEACE: The Ugly Truth About Beauty →
body-peace: From a guy’s perspective. I found this really interesting and entertaining and in my opinion, he says a lot of things that are true too. It makes you wonder about your own beauty antics and what not. Have a read! If you’re a man, at some point a woman will ask you how she looks. … I actually found this kind of offensive and presumptuous. This post is from a male’s...
My better half Jamie (hyperopiacheart) has some very valid things to say regarding body/size/fat acceptance. I love him very much and he is the smartest man I know. This is long as fuck, but worth the read. My body is my home. I am its sole inhabitant, greatest critic and strongest supporter. For years I presumed that it’d be a better home if it was different. Modifications, additions,...
I like to play.

"I love my body because he loves my body."
I just read a post somewhere about a girl who was happy with her body because she finally found a man who thought she was sexually attractive. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy when women find some sort of peace with their bodies no matter where that happiness originates from. I’m just sad that in some cases, it has to do with being aesthetically pleasing for a man. To live up to...
Nutrition and privilege
newwavefeminism: I really don’t understand why it’s so difficult to understand why those in poverty don’t make nutrition their first priority. 1) First of all, understanding about nutrition is a privilege in itself. These are things that have to be LEARNED, and TOUGHT by people actual nutritionists. Do you know what my high school made a priority? Making sure students are able to pass the...
Fat Acceptance Story
My name is Melanie, last time I weighed myself the scales said I was 18 stone 11lbs. I wear a UK size 20/22 and shoe size 9 extra wide fit. This past year I have discovered a community so inspiring that it has completely changed the way I see myself, and the way I see others. That community is something known as Fat Acceptance. I stumbled across it accidentally, and it actually came at exactly...

I know we all have our bad days, but I know you’re out there. Confident women do exist. If that applies to you, answer me this if you will… (Answering via reblog would be best, I’d love if you could spread it around. Or submit?) I know my own story, but I want to know yours. What was your journey to accepting yourself and your body? What do you wish you could have told yourself...
There is No Obesity Epidemic →
marenge: lucypaw: thecuntmentality: ftmark: In 1998, more than 30 million people became overweight. And guess what? It happened while they were sleeping. That’s right. In June of 1998, the number of overweight people in America increased by 50 percent—overnight! How did this happen? Did they all go on a massive potato chip binge? No. In fact, not one of them had gained a pound. Instead,...
