B*tches lookin PRESSED.
NOW THIS DOESN’T ALL GO TO WASTE!
Attention: Plus-sized people (and allies) who want to change the status quo!
We are bombarded with messages about our bodies and our health every day. We’re told to diet, no matter what that might do to our bodies. We’re told to wear clothes that “look slimming” no matter what that might do to our self esteem. We’re told to wait to be thinner before we do what we want, no matter what that might do to our lives.
And yet, there are lots of us who are working to change the status quo. Whether we do it through activism, or fashion, or exposing diet industry politics, or just finding ways to live our lives outside the boundaries that we’re supposed to accept, we are part of something bigger than ourselves. It is a revolution in the truest sense.
So Golda of Body Love Wellness has assembled a group of 20 (!) amazing people who are at the forefront of this revolution for this free telesummit.
We’ve got Dr. Linda Bacon talking about the science of Health At Every Size (R), we’ve got Paul Campos talking about diet politics, we’ve got Marilyn Wann talking activism, we’ve got IGIGI founder Yuliya Raquel talking fatshion and that’s just the beginning.
You can register for free and get free access to the live calls and access to the download of the call for 24 hours, or you can get a sliding scale all access pass to the downloads through March 30th.

My body is not a representation of my failures, sins, or mistakes. My body is not a sign that I am in poor health, or that I am not physically fit. My body is not up for public discussion, debate or judgment. My body is not a signal that I need your help or input to make decisions about my health or life. My body is the constant companion that helps me do every single thing that I do every second of every day and it deserves respect and admiration. If you are incapable of appreciating my body that is your deficiency, not mine, and I do not care. Nor am I interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter so, if you want to be around me, you are 100% responsible for doing whatever it takes to keep those thoughts to yourself. If you are incapable of doing that I will leave and spend my time with people who can treat me appropriately. Please pass the green beans.
