It’s disheartening to acknowledge that we still need to discuss the importance of speaking up against body shaming, but we do. The conversation is still necessary. It still needs to be said that Fat Shaming is NOT OKAY. It's not motivation. It’s bullying.
Are you a victim of fat-shaming? Have you fat shamed another woman, whether publicly or in a private conversation?
For us to change the narrative of this happening, we must hold ourselves and those around us accountable for the words spoken about others. When we’re unaware of a woman’s personal journey, we do not have the right to judge whether or not she’s deemed acceptable.
As a part of the Find Body Freedom community, let’s be a tribe of women that support and encourage instead of criticizing our differences.
Regardless of your size, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Embrace the curves, the marks, and the undeniable power that embodies being a woman.
Let’s also strive to celebrate this in all of the women around us!
