Blah blah blah, "The Media."

Apparently of ALL reality TV, that TV show is “disgusting” because it pushes the idea that overweight people are...
Whether you realize it or not, there is a woman...
th3skinny: It could be your daughter, your little sister, a child you babysit, a friend, or even a girl from school you’ve never noticed. Whoever she is, she looks up to you and she pays attention to your words and actions. She watches how you eat and how you talk about yourself. When you call yourself fat or ugly or say you aren’t good enough, she thinks, “If she’s fat, I must be a whale! If...

redefiningbodyimage: It Happened to Me: I Got in Trouble for Bringing My Boobs to the Office Fat bodies, female fat bodies, are often read as more sexually accessible for a whole lot of reasons (she’ll take it where she can get it, she can’t control any of her appetites, etc.) that have nothing to do with the person being viewed and everything to do with the viewer.

Back from my trip to PA; it really helped to spend some time with my dad. Weirdly enough, this appears to have been a motivating moment for me, because yesterday after work I got in my first workout in I think weeks, and leftover Halloween candy aside I’ve been eating very well. Off to work!
