Fat Bottomed Girls

A Fat Positive site, focusing on women who are fat and not ashamed of it.

Another ramble of mine:

I've talked to a lot of women in my 27 years, many of whom have a problem with their size. Women from a size 2 to size 32+ all who have massive body issues.

Women who truly hate their bodies. Women who when asked when the favorite part of their body is, answer: eyes, nose, lips, hair, very few answer anything other than facial features.

Why? Why, do we hate our bodies. Think about it, in this life we only get one body. The one you're sitting there with is it. No one is going to magically reach down and give you a new body. Fat, thin, short, tall, that's what you are.

I know women who have been married for years, who still feel shame when their husbands look at their naked bodies. Women who hide their bodies from their spouses. Women who are thinking more about how their stomach is jiggling, than the orgasms that the could be having.

It's not easy to change this. Lord knows I'm not 100% about myself all the time. I have my good and bad days, but, it's time to celebrate our bodies. Live within them and enjoy them. Forget about the cellulite on our thighs, the jiggle of our stomachs, and live in the moment.
