My Mantra….revisited for 2010


After a couple of years of posting to the blog and changes in my life, this is where I am.  This blog is evolving.  Initally I created this to write about my struggles with self loathing and size acceptance.  I viewed myself as an activist for fat people of the word.  While I still struggle to be better (than what?) I have begun to reverse my own ideas of dieting culture.  I am less caught up when people comment on thier own weight, how much they eat and how many pants sizes they drop or gain.   As I have changed, so must the blog.  Evolve with me.  Welcome 2010 with my big happy body.  This is my new Mantra…. 

  • I am not what I eat…I’m what I do and what I say.
  • I am not how much I weigh or how much I’ve gained or how much I’ve lost, and I’m going to try damn hard not to be embarrassed if the direction doesn’t make me smaller. 
  • Changing my shape and size isn’t going to make me happy, however, may make me poor, as I will have to go shopping.
  • Having happy thoughts about me, you and the world will make me a better person.
  • I respectfully decline to discuss your size, my size, her size or his size in any way…unless it makes you or me laugh and isn’t hurtful to anyone.
  • I will eat what I want, and move on—slowly or quickly depending on what I ate.
  • Being healthy doesn’t mean being thin.  Being fat doesn’t mean unhealthy.
