Shame-Loss Ads | The Nearsighted Owl

I am going to take weight loss ads and redraw them to be body positive. Instead of encouraging you to drop pounds, they will celebrate dropping our body shame and fat hate! It was satisfying to take a message I have been assaulted with since the holidays and transform it into something I am in love with.

Happy being fat

Happy HAES Holidays Workshop | Dances With Fat

Whether you celebrate a holiday or not, this time of year can be a really stressful for people who practice Size Acceptance and/or Health at Every Size. Tons of mixed messages around food, dealing with family, trying to set weight neutral resolutions and goals while everyone else is starting their new diet. I’ve put together a group of speakers to give you information and ideas to support you having a happy holiday season.

Fit Fatties Forum

Fit Fatties badge

Visit Fit Fatties

Sadly doesn’t support the active badge, so this is a screen cap.  You can still click it to link to the site though:)

This is a new site I have become involved with & I am loving it!  It is a forum for active people of every size from a Health At Every Size perspective.  It’s wonderful to have a space to talk about activity with people who don’t judge you & understand the issues you face, & no diet talk.

I highly recommend checking this out.
