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.

This is the hardest thing I will ever do in my life.. I am Inderjit this is my body. Most fat girls have a big ass and nice round hips clearly I don’t. I used to cry myself to sleep most nights because “if god made me fat why couldn’t He have given me a more ‘femine’ body” It got so bad at one point that I used to wear a waist clincher and underwear with butt padding and hip padding. It made my exterior look better but my underlying body issues where still there. I felt like a manly with my broad shoulders, big breasts and stomach. I have no curves. Thanks to Chubby Bunnies and therapy I am learning to accept my body. No matter the shape or size my body is a good body.
Great reminder that not all fat bodies are the same.
