Fatshion vs. Fashion: Personal update

As written below, I headed to my closet for a sleeveless top, but instead I found a dress that shows off my knees and then some. This is a much bigger step than the sleeveless top for me personally, so I figured I should give “walking the walk” my best effort, and put it on. I’ve worn it several times now, and although I have pangs of self-consciousness, I am also kinda proud. In fact, I feel deserving of a fat activist label. Like a button. Can we have “Fat Activist” buttons? ‘Cause that would be awesome. :=)

I'm so happy for you! I guess once you get used to not covering up it becomes completely normal. I think I worry that just one negative comment could send be 5 step backwards though in confidence, still working on that :)

Thank you! How nice of you to say:) Hehe, that's what I'm hoping at least. Working on it is as good as any of us can do I think. Every little step foreward deserves a celebration in my opinion.
