Skinny or Fat? I’d Rather Be Fit!

Don’t call me skinny or fat, because I am fit and that’s what is most important.  I exercise regularly and try for the most part to eat healthy.  My goal is to be strong, independent, and with my faculties intact as I age.  I understand that good nutrition, regular exercise and healthy lifestyle habits are the elements within my control to help me get there.   I am not perfect.  My legs rub together at the top, my breasts are small, and my nose is large, but they are all a part of who I am, and they make me unique.  Oops, I missed the fact that my heart is big and I am very grateful for my blessings, large and small.

October 18-22, the Tri Delt Sorority sponsors “Fat Free Talk” week.  Take a moment to celebrate what makes you different.  Don’t let negative, skinny or fat talk destroy your body image or harm self-esteem of younger family members who might be listening.  Check out this new video by Fruit of the Loom as they support women who embrace their shapeliness.  Click here and then go to the upper, right hand “Our Day Job” tab.  It’s the first in a series.

For all the places I want to see
These legs are a vehicle,
carrying me.
What more could I ask them to be?
They’re flawless.
Flawless.
Beauty magazines offer their tricks
Tell me…
What are they trying to fix?
I can’t imagine how your embrace
Would be any warmer on a 20-inch waist.
I’m flawless.
Don’t ya know you’re flawless.

  1. Man, talk about a fantastic post! I?ve stumbled across your blog a few times within the past, but I usually forgot to bookmark it. But not again! Thanks for posting the way you do, I genuinely appreciate seeing someone who actually has a viewpoint and isn?t really just bringing back up crap like nearly all other writers today. Keep it up!

  2. I love it but accepting is hard to do. Every day I run I am grateful that my body is capable of moving but I’ll admit, I also like my jeans to fit and enjoy being closer to skinny than fat.
