You can wear shorts, you can wear bathing suits, you can wear tank tops. You can wear ANYTHING you want to regardless of body size, shape, scars, veins, tattoos, hair, bumps, stretch marks, etc.

When we stop labeling food “good” or “bad” then we can stop labeling ourselves as such based on the foods we eat.
Cut the food guilt and there’s a whole lot of time right there for just about anything else!
Commenting on someone’s weight loss (aside from reinforcing the false ideal that fat=bad and thin =good) might be complimenting someone with cancer, an eating disorder, depression, food insecurity, substance abuse, and a whole lot of other conditions.
In case you haven’t heard yet or have been absent from social media like I have (cuz ya know, #life), Weight Watchers (now known as WW because they want to pretend they’re not a diet) has teamed up with Kurbo Health to provide a weight loss app for kids as young as 8 (but advertised on iTunes as being for ages 4+).
Just dropping in to remind you that you don’t lack willpower for eating an extra pancake, drinking a latte, eating the kids’ leftovers, or having a cookie (or 12).
