Richard Goodwin, a famous speechwriter, recently died—and some of his most beautiful words have been highlighted in his obituaries. I heard this quote today for the first time and it was so eloquent I wanted to share.
It can feel like our everyday stands against fatphobia and size oppression don't matter, or won't create change. But when there are hundreds, thousands, millions of us participating in these acts, each from our own "centers of energy and daring", change can truly occur.
Let's highlight the "daring" part of that phrase. This work isn't easy—whether it's opting out of diet culture in our individual lives or going a step further to advocate against oppression more broadly. So this is just a little reminder to give yourself credit for your daring, and also compassion for wherever you're at on your journey.
(Note that the original speech said "man" and I substituted "person". But oops, I left the pronoun as-is.... ah well!)
Maria Hinojosa: Maria was #powerofthepurse
’s 14th annual speaker. she was born in mexico city, mexico. when she was a toddler, she and her four siblings, father (who was a doctor) and mother immigrated into chicago. several years later, she graduated from barnard university. through the years, she has made many documentaries, one of which is “child brides: stolen lives”. maria is a journalist, and first became interested in journalism when she applied for an internship for NPR. maria is now an anchor and executive producer of latino usa, which has one several awards. one of which is the peabody award. maria has won several awards herself too: the john chancellor award, the robert f. kennedy award, journalism award, and edward murro award. in maria’s news room she bans some words, some of which include: slaves (she wants to remind everyone that these are human beings who were wrongly and without will enslaved), illegal (illegal is not an adjective, grammatically, but it is no way to describe humans), and a few more. she reminds us that we are all immigrants and that it is not at all okay in anyway to look at someone differently and pass more judgement to them because they were not born in this country. she reminds us to have difficult conversations, such as those revolving around politics and civil rights, with love and to hear people’s opinions and share our own. maria is an incredibly inspirational woman. -

, yes! This movement isn’t about making another small set of bodies acceptable—it’s about making all bodies acceptable. (Not to mention helping people recognize their worth beyond their physical appearance.)
All fat girls aren't curvy... these bodies deserve to be visible and uplifted in this movement too. 💖😘
Let’s get real: weddings are for everyBODY. This topic has been weighing heavily on me the last several months. With the royal wedding this past weekend, wedding fever has been everywhere. My own wedding is also coming up this summer, and let me tell you it’s been a HUGE challenge to try and keep my self esteem and self worth intact. The wedding industry is setup to promote the idea that you must be your most beautiful self aka as thin as possible on your wedding day. All the images that you see of weddings are thin people. I can count on one hand the images I’ve seen that are of different sized bodies. And while there is nothing wrong with slender bodies, there’s nothing wrong with ALL shapes and sizes of bodies. Did you know that most bridal stores don’t even carry sample sizes above a size 10-12 which is a street size 6-8? And the average street size for a woman is 12-14? I have talked to so many friends and family who have had horrible dress shopping experiences because of not fitting into this narrow idea of what our bodies should look like. And yes they can order in bigger sizes but you have to commit to a dress without trying it on, and they also often charge extra for larger sizes! It makes me absolutely beyond furious (I decided to have my dress made to avoid the madness). I see so many posts about people getting married and feeling like they need to lose a ton of weight and doing a lot of unhealthy things to lose weight. And I most definitely have fallen into the trap many times over the last several months of feeling like I need to look better, be more thin, etc etc. I wish I could force the industry to change and be inclusive, but what I can do is speak up about it and say it’s total b.s. For anyone getting married and feeling like they don’t see themselves represented in all these fairy tale images of the perfect day for whatever reason - I am there with you in solidarity. I am coping by leaning heavily on good friends, by avoiding sites and images that are triggering as much as I can, and by focusing on what’s important - that I’m marrying the most wonderful man and love of my life. Enough is enough with this madness. ❤️
Sick at home and thinking of brighter days. 🤒

Sometimes I forget that during the course of my #JourneyToFit
... this time of transitioning into the healthiest and best version of myself…it has also been my transition from being a person with perfect vision to someone who is now living her life partially blind.
The two journies started almost simultaneously with only twenty-five days between the day I started taking back control of my health, and the day I was told that I had a detached retina in my right eye. Nearly two years of my life from that moment were spent living in between the next surgery or ophthalmologist follow up appointment. And in the end, with over a dozen surgeries and procedures under my belt, vision in my right eye was gone.
Just how my journey to being my best self is an ongoing one so is my journey as a woman who is navigating life visually impaired. Sometimes it throws the unexpected curveball, and you find yourself having to figure out your way over a new mountain. But that’s life. And we ALL go through it in one form or another. We may not have control over the circumstances that life throws our way...but we do have the choice to move forward, make the best of what we’ve been given...and if we’re brave enough...use it to help change someone else’s life 💕

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

‘Cultivate your curves. They may be dangerous but they won’t be avoided.’ ~ mae west
Bodacious and curvaceous a woman, I Am.
One of the most beautiful relationships a woman can have is the one she creates with her body.
A relationship that is healthy, nurturing, loving, sensual, aware and in tune.
Love thy curves.
Bodacious isn’t a size, it’s a feeling, a woman’s soulful connection of heart, body and mind.
Own your beauty, your brilliance, your sensuality, your strength, your vulnerability, and show yourself how big your brave is!
Own all of your curves and lines.
And while string bikini’s aren’t really my thing...
I may Rock the Bells out of a One-piece!
