Today I promise to End Fat Talk in conversations with my friends, my family and myself. Starting now, I will strive not for a thin-ideal but for a healthy ideal, which I know looks different for every person, and focuses on health not weight or size. I will celebrate the things about myself and the people in my life that have nothing to do with how we look.
Fat Talk Free Week encourages the celebration the things about ourselves and the people in our lives that have nothing to do with how we look.
