RBI focuses on using expressive writing, design-oriented work, photography, media, research, and community input to fuel fat positive, body acceptance, discussion, and outreach. Our goal is to redefine the way we view and think about body image, size, fat, discrimination, health, fitness, wellness, mental/chronic illness, stigma, and other related topics.
We are constantly redefining our own perspectives, and therefore tend to write a lot about our personal experiences. Many followers and contributors are living with anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphic disorder, depression, and a variety of other body image disorders or mental illnesses, so please be respectful and remember that health applies differently to everyone. Any and all potentially triggering content will be prefaced with a trigger warning.
RBI supports all races, genders, classes, and sizes. We try our best to make this a safe space for everyone. If we are not doing our job or checking our privilege, we invite you to please inform us.
Some of the artwork you see here has been created by our founder or moderators, some sourced when applicable. Please be kind enough to source this blog whenever you share it's content.
We are not health professionals. Any and all advice provided on this blog is supported only by our own research, studies, and personal experiences; nothing more.
haha thank you! I’m glad my brain is not as nonsense as it seems to be at times. It’s good getting validation time to time from lovely people. It’s hard for me to grasp that I’m actually accomplishing anything, especially as I’m the type of person to ruminate bad thoughts and think “why did I do that why did I say that what am I even doing” and my anxieties often get the best of me, but not forever.
I can not believe those words came from a doctor’s mouth. That is just unspeakably fucking horrid. But I am so glad you’re finding a good place in yourself and your health and happiness, that is most important. <3
