A body-positive way to look at every body type, no matter the size or shape. Remember girls, you’re gorgeous!
I also wrote this comic to help me feel better about myself in high school. This is a personal comic and of course everyone has their own challenges with loving themselves and their own ways of dealing with them…these are just specific examples of what I was dealing with at the time, (and continue to deal with.) I wrote this a little over a year ago.
I’m also aware that there are some things that are potentially problematic about the comments on weight and a “fixed self image” If you spot any other things about this this are problematic, feel free to call me out.
This is perfect
I haven’t posted a drawing in ages and I’m in a scribbly mood so this is what you’re stuck with I’m afraid.. please don’t repost or change the source!
The quote is true, though. As long as you’re comfortable in your body then nothing else matters. :) xx
Your body is the greatest instrument
So according to Victoria’s Secret I can love my body if my waist is the size my thigh currently is, if I am 5’ 9”, if I have long slightly wavy brown or blonde hair, and if I am either white or one very specific shade of brown. Thanks for that, I’ll log that away.
This is for the “body acceptance” blogs who have been criticizing me this week, accusing me of being pro-thin, of body-shaming heavy bodies by drawing fit people, and of not accepting my body as it is by wanting to lose weight.
First of all, I’m surprised that you’re surprised that I make posts that involve weight loss. News flash: This is a weight loss blog. I am trying to lose weight and get fit. I have been, for years, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean I hate my body, or worse, myself, so please spare me your you-should-accept-your-body for-what-it-is preaching, because I already do. I accept that I’m fat, but that doesn’t mean I can’t or won’t do something about it, if that’s what I feel like doing. Don’t label me the villain for wanting something different from what you prefer. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be smaller, the same way there’s nothing wrong with staying big. Aren’t changing bodies also included in the body acceptance movement?
People ask me what my opinion on fat acceptance is. To be honest, I have none. I myself am fat but personally, I don’t need a movement dedicated to my fat self. I like myself and I can’t see how other people’s opinions should matter much after that. I don’t need a subcategory of body acceptance, the general one works fine for me. If it’s genuine body acceptance, why must there be an adjective before it?
We’re all different and so are our preferences, so the key to keeping peace is to live and let live. If you disagree with my choices concerning my body and lifestyle, don’t look at my blog and don’t follow people who reblog my stuff because chances are, those people have the same preferences as I. I’m not shoving my opinions down your throats, so don’t shove yours down mine.
Still trying to achieve this.
Big hip babes! Woot! So nice to see my body type in one of these. :) Makes it feel more personal.
