Fat Girl Swimming …

First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water.

Tis the season to hate my body … tra la la la la la la la la

Maybe it’s the time of year – summer, NY resolution time, Christmas – but it just seems again that the body and fat shaming is at an all-time high.

An afternoon of Grace & Style

I grew up with a very practical Mum – loving, caring, hardworking, realistic, no frills. I don’t really remember her as someone who would wear a lot of make-up or jewellery. She was a school cleaner for most of my childhood so she spent most of the time in ‘serviceable’ (her words) clothes.

What’s so wrong about ‘plus size’?

I wasn’t planning on posting anything tonight, but this link popped up in my stream earlier this evening, and I just feel the need to comment. KMart US has apparently decided to drop the term “plus size” and instead replace it with “Fabulously Sized”.

WTFAID Syndrome

Sitting on the couch tonight and I was struck by the WTFAID Syndrome (What The Fuck Am I Doing) again. I get it regularly.

Black and Blue with a splash of yellow

Just back from two days away in Adelaide and three days out of the office. I decided to go with what I think is a classic black and blue with a splash of bold yellow.

Black and White Pencil Skirt by Dezigna

Last July at Musgrave Park I picked up one of the Dezigna pencil skirts. The first time I tried a maxi-skirt I thought I’d died and go to heaven – so incredibly comfortable and the freedom! Strangely enough though, I’ve found myself in love with the pencil skirt in the past few years despite it being the opposite of freedom.

On body shaming

Have just read another young mum depressed about not having her pre-baby body. 

I’m saddened yet unsurprised by the amount of body shame many of my Facebook friends express about their own bodies. It’s generally all weight related – haven’t got my pre-baby shape, gotta workout to make up for last night, can’t wear a top because it doesn’t hide the flaws, etc.

Learning to say I’m fat and not hate myself

The story of the young man who risked everything to travel overseas for massive cosmetic surgery in the hope of making a new life for himself brings into the present the real dangers of the body-image cult that our culture is still part of.
