Reclaiming the word fat was the most empowering step in my progress. I stopped using it for insult or degradation and instead replaced it with truth, because the truth is that I am fat, and that’s ok. So now when someone calls me fat, I agree, whereas before I would get embarrassed and emotional.

i think it’s wonderful that you’ve created this blog. i’m not ‘fat’, i’m actually quite thin, but i do have people in my family that are heavyset. i know the damage that bullying can do, and i also know that being chunkier doesn’t mean you’re an ugly, bad person. it’s the personality that counts; if you walk in a room with as much confidence as *insert favorite celebrity here* then everyone is going to notice you and they’ll respect you for that. but if you’re being negative about your body, people around you start being negative about your body because they think it’s justified.. just ignore their ignorance. there’s always going to be people trying to tear you down. what matters is that you get back up, and keep going. you are beautiful… don’t let anyone tell you different. okay?
and to the creator of this blog; i’m really grateful for this tumblr. i’m always seeing ‘thinspiration’ everywhere and it makes me so sad. when i came across ‘fatspiration’ i’ll be honest, i thought it was a blog about wanting everyone to be unhealthy. i now know it’s letting others vent and feel at peace with their beautiful bodies. so, again, thank you♥
