Dear Fat People

Dear Fat People

You are entitled to live in your body, no matter what size it is. It doesn't matter if you're getting bigger, getting smaller or staying the same. Your size does not affect your worth and you are entitled to live a happy life in the body you have. Your waist does not mean that you should be treated differently by others who can't see beyond the dress size that you wear.

You are allowed to call yourself fat; you're also allowed to call yourself curvy, fluffy, voluptuous, big built, chunky - you’re even allowed to be in denial of your weight if you wish to (although it makes for a happier life if you accept and love your body). It should go without saying that you are allowed to be happy.

The size of your body doesn't mean that you are worthless - you are worthy of a family, a loving relationship, a job, holidays, clothing and anything else that you want. The world is your oyster and you are worthy of grabbing any part of that you want to.

There are going to be people out there who make 'comedy' videos in order to try and shame you. There are going to be people who use faux concern for your health to tell you that you should change your body. Strangers are always going to have something to say about the way that you look, it is important that you ignore them and get on with your life.

 People are going to be scared of your strength, they'll find your confidence baffling, and they won't be able to understand why you don't want to change the size of your body. Well you are allowed to live your life without excuses. You do not have to tell people why you're happy, you don't have to give excuses for your body, you don't have to tell them you work out or prove to them how healthy you are. 

My dear fat people: your body is yours and no one else’s. When it comes to your body choices you are the one that makes those choices. 
Do not let people trying to hit headlines shame you and your body because your body is worth more than their ill thought out words will ever be!

You are worthy of ALL of this now and not 'when...'

You are worthy and don't ever forget it!
