Okay, so I’m opening up today for any/all questions, if you’d like some advice or suggestions,

    If YOU were writing a letter to your twelve year old self, what would you say?

    What’s your favorite outfit of all time?

    I love the outfits from this post: http://bit.ly/ftVbrZ but I can’t find the one that I adore most. It’s red and black mostly. I just feel rockin’ in it! I have this big red hart necklace and my big black flower headband. It’s fab. (Might email you it!)
    What would I tell my 12 year old self? Hmm…In regards to fat/body image? Or in general? About body image: You are adorable and hawt and awesome and don’t let anyone ever make you feel anything less than that. If they try, realize that there is something in them that needs to feel better and so they feel the need to take you down a peg. Fuck them!
    In general: Avoid a gal named K__ B____ like the fucking plague! And have fun! Date lots and lots of boys! Don’t let any of them push you around. Talk to Grandma Ann about her childhood and her mother and things like that. Stay in touch with Grandma Joyce. Don’t let your emotions rule you. Stay grounded. Be honest! Don’t place the value of your self worth in others’ hands. You don’t have to pay or give for people to like/love you. Just be you and follow your heart!

    What sort of things do you do to keep a positive attitude about your body? Sometimes its hard for me to see past moments of sadness and doubt when it comes to persevering in accepting my body. I’d love to hear your thoughts, and maybe some things that you do for yourself that have nothing to do with a loving husband or friends (of which I only have the latter).

    I would love to, but let me start by saying that my husband was my friend first and we do often refer to each other as friends, even now. Ha-ha!
    I’ve had a lot of moments of sadness and doubt this week. One thing I do is when I’m feeling my worst (like if I have a cold or something) I will dress up a little more than usual. I almost never wear makeup so if I’m feeling down I will make my eyes look brighter with a shimmer eyeshadow and my beloved “falsies” mascara. I know it seems shallow, but when you look fab, and people give you compliments all day, it sure lifts your spirits! I don’t do this often, so it makes a big impact when I do. Also, MUSIC!!! Oh my gosh, I love music so much it’s like the most obvious thing in the world, but there is nothing like letting a song or band or album carry you away from your troubles and getting lost in the noise! My taste is quite varied, but there is nothing like Betty Hutton’s cheery tunes to lift me up when I’m down. It’s 40’s music, and almost always upbeat and positive. Here are my faves: http://bit.ly/TZw4B http://bit.ly/bgjKr http://bit.ly/bgjKr
    Aside from this, I also do chat with friends. Weather it’s on facebook or in real life or a quick text to my bff, ya gotta have someone to lean on or vent/rant at. I am a firm believer in the healing power of a good, long & heated rant! If you don’t have someone to do this with/for you on a regular basis, email me and I’ll give you my cell#: notblueatall@notblueatall.com
    I also love looking at the adipositivity.com pictures and the loads of fat positive communities on Tumblr.com there a belly love one that always makes me smile. It’s usually just a close up pic of a large belly. It reminds me that I’m more normal than I realize and that even a death fatty can love herself, accept herself and her belly! <3

    Can you advise on any particular studies/medical papers/books that I can use to explain to my doctor about HAES so that he will understand that i dont want to diet and I need to focus on wellbeing rather than weight. I was diagnosed as diabetic last year and since then i have felt even more bullied by the different GPs that i see, regardless of what i go to see them about they put it down to weight. I could tell them that my eyelashes hurt and they would say its because I’m fat! They refuse to believe how little i eat (not little as in i’m eating nothing just that they expect me to be continually eating takeout and chocolate) or that i exercise. Last time i went was told i should have WLS and when i said i was against that idea the GP actually said that i would have to stop eating to sucessfully lose weight but when i try to explain i dont actually want to lose weight they look at me like I’m depraved.

    However my GP does seem to be a little more enlightened than most but unfortunately i rarely get to see him, I have finally bagged an appointment with him next week so want to seize this opportunity to explain how I’m feeling but I need some hard facts. I always seem to get tongue tied and anxious when i’m sat in front of a doctor so i would appreciate any advice on how i can get HAES across without falling apart!

    Oh, doll, I’m sorry. It really is disgusting that the people who are supposed to provide care for us without judgment in our ultimate time of need are simply taking the opportunity to fat shame us. It’s bullshit! And I fight back every time. But I understand that it’s an uphill battle and very difficult to find medical professionals who are so enlightened to the HAES way of life. You might consider coming in prepared with either a letter or note cards to guide you in speaking with the MD. Or you may just say up front that your weight is not to be discussed or measured unless it is deemed absolutely medically relevant (like for medication). I will offer you the following links to get you started hopefully, but feel free to come back here and ask more questions or rant if you feel the need. =0)
