I'll tell you WHY tomorrow!
Go and check out Prior Fat Girl's blog today, it's all about the Potty Breaks! and she's got a great contest to go along with it!
Also, check out today's blog post from The Fab Fatties. It's all about FAT -- and Fat Acceptance.
The Fabs were responding to another blog -- which you can read here.
I don't "accept" the fact that I'm fat (overweight, obese, whatever you want to call it.)
I KNOW that I'm fat. What I don't accept is remaining fat. I wanted to change -- I am changing.
What is unacceptable is being unhealthy, unhappy, and uncomfortable. At 298 pounds, I was ALL of those things and more.
No, I'm not "skinny". I'm still obese, but working daily to CHANGE into a smaller, healthier me.
I will be successful because it's not acceptable to me to hide myself away, refuse to go out, refuse to have photos taken, wear clothes that are tent-like...
No, those days are over.
I accept the challenge to change.
