A health initiative that embraces both change and the happy fatty life sounds like the ultimate contradiction but I have genuinely found that this is a reality, & I’m proud to say I’m part of it.
This time of year divides us into Team Fatness or Team Fitness, leaving my fat-positive-but-wanting-to-lose-weight-for-personal-health-reasons arse in the middle of a real life venn diagram.

TW. Bariatric surgery is not a decision I’ve made lightly & I’ve made it known to all the counselors / dietitians / exercise instructors I’ve met so far that I’m happy in my own skin & I will always support the plus world. So why am I scared of the plus world shunning me?
It may seem a very specific thing that only fans or wags can relate to, the world of wrestling can teach us a few things about real life.
We have so many sources of self love readily available but some brands have jumped on this bandwagon with ulterior motives.

If you’ve seen my Crater looking sleepy at a wrestling show, it’s my fault for keeping him up all night… With my snoring that we never realised was a life-threatening side effect of being a fat lass.
Being beautiful in wrestling is no substitute to talent. Being attractive (or curvy or athletic or petite or red-headed or tattooed) is not a person’s character.
I adore the BoPo community but what was a supportive celebration of choice power is turning into a contradictory place of negativity since the turn of 2019 for two just reasons.
