In the 1980s and ’90s, when I wore a size 24, my shopping options were limited. Being obese and fashionable was barely possible. How things have changed.
Speaking of fashion, I guess, introducing the Ta-Ta Towel.
A little more levity: Did you see the “I love this woman and her curvy body” post making the rounds recently? These responses are gold.
I didn’t hear about RADCAMP: A Body Positive Boot Camp for Feminists until it was already over, but man, am I glad it exists. There have been many times in my life when I could’ve used it, including now.
When my son first started resisting vegetables, I was desperate to find some way to get them into his little body. I fell for the hype, briefly, of things like veggie sticks. This article explains why they’re a sham, along with five other “healthy” foods.
It’s a good thing we’re not relying on exercise alone to lose weight.
Summer’s not over yet. There’s time for me to post one more link about wearing a bathing suit in public. (This is a good one!)
Some days, I just want to be a cat in a pumpkin hat, ringing a bell for food.
