It was hard for me to go from super skinny to actually having a body, and looking like a woman, and sometimes I wish I was still that skinny. Like skinny enough that you could see my ribs and hipbones… and that’s why I have somewhat of a fascination with them, because mine don’t stand out. I know you love my body, and I’m glad. It’s helping me to love it more as well.

5’10, 110lbs = “heavier model.”  i struggle with my own body and image issues and i really relate to those unrealistic, conflicting, self deprecating thoughts.  In the end, she doesn’t have a “happily ever after” and isn’t 100% cured and I don’t think I can be either.  That critical, obsessive thinking doesn’t magically disappear, but the article ends in a hopeful, wistful note and I think I’ve grown in a way she has and reached a more peaceful place too.  I still deal with those thoughts and have my bad days.. but in the end, I’ve learned that I have to be happy with myself.  Family and love are what truly matters and I’m just trying to live the best life I can.

And people are going to be fat, or not fat, irrespective of your judgment about fat people. Letting go of fat hatred won’t change anything—except, of course, to make the world a little bit better a place for its fat inhabitants.

It can be a hatred that’s hard to let go of, even for fat people, because letting go of that hatred, and replacing it with acceptance, can feel akin to giving fat people permission to be fat.

But being in the position of feeling like permission is yours to give is a manifestation of privilege. And maybe it’s all right to let that privilege go.

"Social control of women is predicated on bodily control of women — throughout the centuries, women’s bodies have been subject to assault, rape and other forms of violence, their movements restricted both literally and figuratively, their sexual expression and self-determinations denied, their bodies sexualized and commodified, their health issues dismissed and undertreated, access to food restricted and regulated, ad nauseum. Is it any wonder then that 90 percent of eating disorder cases are seen in girls and women? Women seek to control their bodies precisely because they continue to lack control over their bodies."

fuck the trees: Fat Issues

Today was a difficult day.

In my Women, Food and Culture course we watched a documentary on the dance troupe Big Dance and basically the movie threw me into an anxiety attack. I knew at the start of the course that we would eventually be discussing weight- and fat-related issues and that it…

Really looking forward to starting my photography exam

Think Brilliantly: Body Image; Self Love

I’m watching Tyler Perry’s film “Why Did I Get Married” for the first time. The guy who plays Jill Scott’s husband is a complete a—hole. He told her that if she loses 50 pounds, then MAYBE he will be attracted to her again. WTF? I’m just saying now, when I get married and my husband says some shxt…

Poetic InQueery: Hypo(crite)

I loved her body.

Now, I am a hypocrite.

I laid down oaths that she was perfect, just the way she was, and now I persecute that same “excess” flesh on myself. Did the universe not make my body, too?

Who are you to judge me? asks my body. Who the FUCK are YOU?

I would tell it I’m sorry, but I…
