I posted this on Facebook, but I wanted to share it with a bigger audience to help more people understand me.
This. I say this all the time and people disagree with me (as if I’m putting myself down). I’m not. It’s a fact (right now) – I’m fat. I may always be fat, I may not, but it’s still a fact right now and I’m ok saying it. It’s just a descriptive term, like anything else. I am not putting myself down – I’m simply describing myself. I can be fat and beautiful. And I am.
