I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

August 7th, Be Body Positive Day


How will you celebrate Be Body Positive Day? It’s this Sunday and I have to tell ya, I have no idea…yet! I would love your ideas and suggestions. The thing is, this weekend I have so much going on it’s a little startling. Ha! I know, I complain about not having a social life and then **WHAM** here’s all of your social life in one action packed weekend! (Prepare for random/sporadic/ranty post below.)

But seriously, my mother in law flies into town tonight and I’m so nervous/excited to see her. We haven’t seen her in two years and we both miss her dearly. Only thing is that I’m going out dancing tonight with a whole crew of fabulous fatties and I’m super-mega stoked about that, too! I do hope my knees are okay though, I’ll definitely have to take it easy on the old gals. Ha! I just called my fucking knees “old gals!” What in the what? I know, I sound silly…I FEEL silly right now! It’s Friday! Woo Hoo! And I just defrosted a giant freezer with my two bad ass hands (and a mallet and scraper)! Nothing like a little demo work to start your morning!

I feel strong today, I feel powerful. That’s body positive, right?! By Sunday I may just be toast or toasty dust or something. Not drinking tonight (I’m driving), but I do have work in the morning, too. Tomorrow night? Who knows?! I mean, I have been invited to like four different things, but with my MIL in town, I’m not sure what we’ll end up doing. Sunday night, too! Ack! So many things, so little money, not enough time! Hello? Teletransportation please?!?!?!?!?! Gawd, wouldn’t that make life so much easier? Would mine, I’ll tell you that much.

So, I have had some progress on that great news I was waiting on. I’m still technically waiting for things to finalize, if you will, but I won’t know until Monday anyway, so I’m trying not to even think about it. But it all seems to be on the level and the up and up! Thank you all for your good ju-ju, mojo, sparkles, hugs, happy thoughts and general good universal vibes sent my way, if you could just keep ’em coming a bit longer I will let you all know as soon as I do! <3

So, Be Body Positive Day! Sunday. Hmm…perhaps I’ll do myself up nice and make a day of laughing and smiling! That sounds fabulous! No doubt my MIL would have no problem with that. I have some new lip sticks and glosses to play with (Big Lots y’all! It’s this amazing discount store, got $10 lipstick for $1.50!)…who knows?! I do have to find lots of things to do for cheap or free over the next two weeks. Hopefully our niece will come down to visit with us, too. Any locals have some suggestions, please send them my way:

How will you celebrate Be Body Positive Day?

    I think I’m going to go out (wearing my Scarlet Fat, natch!) and just move my happy, big, beautiful body where any damn person can see. Maybe I’ll bake some cookies and take them with and offer them to anyone who looks like they could use a smile. And eat a couple myself. In public!

    Then again, Mr. Twistie may well be stuck working all day that day, in which case I might just stay home and abuse my Sims in protest.

    Meh, I’ll see how I feel when I wake up that morning and go from there.

    Darlin’, consider yourself drenched in glittery, vibey, good mojo! what’s more, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you… especially if you can spare a good thought this afternoon for a friend of ours who has a job interview today. Oh, and maybe one for the Mega Millions drawing tonight. I don’t usually buy lottery tickets, but damn! eighty-five mil would come in handy! LOL!

    @Twistie: Oh! I should wear my Fat necklace! Great idea! Thank you! I will put some happy thoughts for your friend and for your mega millions…just don’t forget us little people! Ha! <3

    Well, I have to work a 12 hour shift today, so I’m going to take the time to actually fix myself up. I’m in the mood for a sort of retro vibe so I think I’ll roll up my hair pinup style and break out my brick red lipstick and the awesome black marker eyeliner I just got yesterday. I’ve got my red nails on.

    @Shieldmaiden1196: Ooh! I love the retro look! Good for you! Sorry you have to work all the live long day, but it sounds like you’ll be looking fabulous while doing it! Woo Hoo!

    Hmph! I totally forgot that was yesterday!

    Does finding a new primary care physician who seemed pretty open to FA today count? No getting on the scale freakout, was OK with getting the bigger BP cuff out. Only asked me if my weight had changed dramatically recently-exactly as she did hubby. Asked if I felt I WANTED lipids, blood work etc, or did I feel OK with the last ones. And even said she had other patients my size and above who had great numbers, so it was up to me.
    Not ready to give her a full recommendation til we work together some, but seemed a worthy start to my day, anyway.

    Hooray! Easiest office convo I’ve had in a while. WAAAY better than the last one who wanted to talk about “the biggest loser”. You can imagine how hard it was for me not to make that into a smart assed comment.

    Hooray. Body Positive day TODAY!

    @Chutti: Wow! Yes that all counts and it’s fantastic!
