All Kinds of Awesome Things Being Said

Dr. Samantha Thomas over at Discourse has a lovely project we can all share in if we please. It’s the I Love My Bum Campaign. To join, send a photo of your backside to Samantha and tell her why you love your bum. The image above is one of the contributions she has already received and is captioned on Discourse with the simple legend: “It’s true.”

The fabulous Shaunta over at Live Once, Juicy (see her header for her lovely entry to the I Love My Bum Campaign) has had a brilliant idea. Encourage it. After a discussion with someone trying to set up a fitness program that isn’t really about weight loss by talking a lot about weight loss, Shaunta has decided to create a curriculum to get people stared on an HAES program for those who want to feel better and build their strength without concerning themselves about their weight. Good on her!

Not Blue At All has a lovely, touching Love Letter to her body. Read it with a hanky at the ready.

And last but far from least, the always amazing Sleepy Dumpling at Fat Heffalump raises her middle fingers on high to someone who tells us everyone is beautiful in their own way… unless they happen to be fat.

    Yep – when you’re fat, you are supposed to lock yourself inside, pull the shades, and disappear. Ditto for short, older etc. Yesirree Bob — the beauty standard is one of those closed clubhouses with the sign outside that reads “No icky xxxx (fill in what you are – you know who you are!) Allowed!” Sorry,my money for clothing, makeup, hair styling and color, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc. is just as good as yours — I’ve got a wallet and know how to use it.

    Good stuff! I do just love seeing people standing up and unabashedly professing their pride in themselves! Thanks, Twistie!

    PS–A friend shared this link today, which was also quite refreshing to read:

    “Fat and Massage”
