Body positivity and health

Something that has come up in conversation a lot recently is body positivity and health. More specifically, “can you be body positive and still want to lose weight or get fit”. It’s a subject that has resulted in a lot of discussion, so I thought I’d weigh in with my opinion. I think you can – to me, body positivity is about loving your whole self at any size.

I’m writing about this as a person who is fat. I’m not a doctor, but everything I write is based on personal experience. That being said, body positivity and health are kind of two different things… Continue reading

What a wonderful week #4

I know, it’s Monday and technically I’m posting this late. And I realise that one of my highlights from the week actually happened today. It’s because it’s Auckland Anniversary weekend, and I kind of lost track of the days – oops!

Fresh fruit
