if you ever need reassurance of your beauty, please talk to me: thinkingoutloudagain.tumblr.com
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♥

Hi everyone, my name is Aubrey. I just turned 20, I’m 5’5” and weigh about 240lbs. I’m very thankful I came across your blog by chance, I feel like it will help me get through my low days.
But I’m submitting for a different reason. I want to try to reach out to those beautiful big people who are looking for love. My advice? Don’t give up! Just because you are bigger doesn’t mean you have less of a chance for love. I have plenty of slim friends who have never been in a relationship, never been kissed! Me? I’ve had 4 boyfriends, the last of which I have happily been with for a year and a half. And despite my insecurities and problems with self-image, he loves everything about me.
I’m not trying to brag or rub it into your face that I found love, despite my circumstances; what I’m trying to say is that love is out there. And contrary to popular belief, love just won’t find you. It’s a two-way street, you’ll have to meet halfway. Put yourselves out there, but don’t be desperate! My boyfriend loved the confidence I had despite my apparent weight issue. Actually, now that I think about it, I was the one who approached him!
Please believe in yourselves. How can you possibly love someone if you can’t love yourself (even to an extent!)? I believe in each and every one of you. Don’t give up. Life has so much in store for you, don’t spend it sitting at your computer on Tumblr all day! (Oops)
Not posting anon so any of you can follow me/ask me stuff. I won’t bite, I promise! Just don’t expect me to answer “What’s the meaning of life…?”
One last thing, I’ve actually GAINED weight since we started dating (all the dinner dates and whatnot, ugh!) but he still can’t get enough of me. You just need to work with what you have! If you got it, flaunt it.
