I have always wanted to be thin. And I’ve lost weight often enough to glimpse what life is like for a thin person: to shop and find clothes you like rather than what fits; to buy the lighter color; to feel unembarrassed at the gym; to wear shorts with no apology. I know firsthand that the thin life is the good life. So why is it so hard to achieve?

Fat acceptance and body positivity makes it to the Ladies Home Journal! Well done, America. (link)
For more, consider revisiting this awesome “Dear Sugar” column about coming to terms with your appearance where she tells us, “We have to be as fearless about our bellies as we are with our hearts.”
