So I just finished reading Fat politics : the real story behind America's obesity epidemic by J. Eric Oliver.
WOW! It is really interesting. I was glad to read about some history of what we have thought about "overweight" and "obesity." Also to learn how the BMI started and why. (Hint, it has nothing to do with weight loss!)
If you can find it at your local library, definitely give it a read.
I think I am getting more and more ok with myself. I am glad for the things my body can do, and am less worried about what it actually looks like. I am working on getting stronger. I want to kick anyone's butt who wants to continue to make fun of me because of my weight! Hi-yah!
