My boyfriend says he loves me the way i am but i want to believe him i really doo but i just dont know how to feel better about my size…
Answer: Try to remember all those things that made you love your body before. Erase all the negative shit from your mind and your life. Bodies are fluid and come in many shapes and sizes. Yours is unique and beautiful. If you don’t let the negative shit go, you’ll never be happy. And you’re doing yourself a disservice. Your boyfriend as well. Remember what RuPaul says, “If you can’t love yourself, then how the hell can you love somebody else?”
Anonymous asked you: A lot of the time I tend to lapse into feeling sad and gross because I’m big and lots of people see my body as a joke or they concern-troll me. What helps me sometimes is when I look at pictures of big tough guys who didn’t lose their bellies, so I stop freaking out and feeling bad that I don’t look like Mr Universe.
Answer: You should never be made to feel bad for being you. I’m glad that you’ve found some sort of inspiration to remind you to love yourself.
Anonymous asked you: I’ve always been self conscious about my body type. Being a fat asian does not have much perks. I’m still slowly accepting my body type. This blog helps a lot.

Anonymous asked you: can we send in pictures even if we’re not considered to be bigger women?
This blog is for people of all sizes, so of course you can.
Anonymous asked you: Hi! When I saw the word ‘fatspiration’ and didn’t know the intended meaning, I assumed that the site was for telling women that skinny is ugly and fat is beauty, and values of the like. The intended definition was lovely and I read through a lot of the blog. Sorry for the pointless rambling, but I’d just like to thank you.
Answer: No need to apologize! I’m glad you understand the intent behind this blog.
Anonymous asked you: I understand that everyone should love their body and feel good about it, and everyone has hardships but people who are “overweight” are targeted the most by the media as well as society as a whole when it comes to body negativity (not counting racial body negativity, because that’s a whole other battle). So we, en masse, need the most encouragement.
Answer: I completely agree. That’s why I created this blog. I made this blog inclusive to all sizes, races, genders, non-genders because we all have problems with our bodies.
