Emily. 19. Chubby bunny. Sci-fi geek. Scrapbooker. Fatshionista. Panda. Whovian. Body positive. Modified. Obnoxious. Forgetful. Over-emotional. Friendly. Get to know me.
I have been really hesitant to post about this on here because I am a proud member of the body/fat/self acceptance movement, and while I know that losing weight will not change that, I know many other people will believe that it will.
So please understand the following:
Either way, due to my stomach condition progressing, I am now back on the medical diet that I was on once before.
So basically, this post is essentially to state my progress so far.
So! Stomach wise, I am feeling much better. The nutrient regulated diet has helped alot. Weight wise, I weighed 281lbs on July 20. Today, September 30, I weighed 248lbs. Which means I am down 33lbs in 72 days.
I’ve noticed that I have alot more energy than I did before, and also, some clothing that has not fit me in a long while fits me again!!! Which is really exciting for me because my favourite jeans fit me once more, as does my big girl jacket!!!
So yea. I was just super excited that these articles of clothing fit me.
Every time I see this photo, it always has a caption that basically asks “Which add is better? Which group of women are more real, or more beautiful?”
Every single woman in both of these photos is beautiful.
Neither campaign is better than the other. Yes, the Dove campaign is slightly more diverse but it’s still not diverse enough.
All women are real women. There is no size, shape, or colour that makes a woman “fake”. The models for VS are not fake. Sure, they are probebly air brushed but they are underwear models. It comes with the territory. I imagine the Dove add is slightly airbrushed as well. Those models work hard to look the way they do. And some women are naturaly that small and lean. This does not make them “fake.
The women in the bottom picture are more representative of the “average” woman, but that does not mean the photo represents all women. In order for it to come close to doing so, there would need to be more women who are much much smaller, and much much bigger in the photo.
I’m just sick of seeing women try to glorify one body type by bashing another. It’s not okay. Us women need to stick together and help each other. We need to spread the word that all women are beautiful. That no body type is better than another.
Yes, some people may be attracted to one more than another, but that does not mean that said body type is “better”.
We need to work together to put an end to body shaming and promote self acceptance for all shapes and sizes.
So if you agrree with me, please reblog and spread the word.
Body shaming is never okay and all women are real women.
It’s simple as that.
Seriously! It’s crazy when I see tumblr drama, and I can almost hardly believe it’s real, simply because all of the people I follow, and the people who follow me are all so wonderful and kind!
So I just wanted to say thank you. You are all brilliant and deserve to be showered in shiny gold stars and glitter and smiles and rainbows and gay porn and other happiness inducing things! And run off sentences, because let’s face it, those are my specialty. xD
Either way, I want to remind you that if any of you ever need someone to talk to, I am always here! And you can also check out my friend’s advice blog if you don’t feel comfortable talking to me. We will both do our best to help tot he best of our abilities!
You can also view my fat acceptance/plus size fashion blog if you ever are feeling down. Hopefully it will help you, and if it does, let me know!
I love you guys!!!!
