SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"We are after all as nature intended - think about it - there are many different species of animal and plant - take the bird (of the feathered kind :)) - comes in all hues - shapes - colours and sizes - flowers - all different colours - sizes - shapes - humans..... all different shapes - sizes - colours etc - so we are not freaks - we a re not ugly - we are as nature intended - to provide variety." ~ Divine DeeDee [SSBBW]

ACCEPTANCE

Self Acceptance and Society/Fat Acceptance

Self acceptance is loving and appreciating yourself even if there are things you'd eventually like to change. Fat acceptance or society acceptance is getting society as a whole to accept that we have the same rights as everyone else and to reduce prejudice within the community.
Got something you want to say about acceptance? Let us know at info@ssbbw-magazine.com.

Self-acceptance means unconditional appreciation and support for who you are now, including all the elements that you want to change.


Things you can do every day to boost your body image:


No-one's perfect. But so often we compare our insides to other people's outsides. Dwelling on our flaws - what we're not rather than what we've got - makes it much harder to be happy. Learning to accept ourselves, warts and all, and being kinder to ourselves when things go wrong, increases our enjoyment of life, our resilience and our well-being. It also helps us accept others as they are.

Having constant criticism in our heads about not being good enough is a sure way to be unhappy. This doesn't mean we should ignore our weaker areas or bad stuff that happens, but it does mean accepting that no-one is perfect, us included. It means putting our imperfections (and things that happen to us) into perspective - seeing them as normal rather than out of the ordinary. And it means a shift of focus, from what we don't have or can't do to what we have or can do.

SSBBWs to blog about their lives each month...

My vision with this magazine is to let you know that you are not alone. There are other SSBBWs around the world with the same issues, thoughts, worries and joys as you have. Whether you have accepted your weight and love your body, whether you are actively working to lose weight or whether you want to get healthier and have more mobility but don't know where to start, you are not alone.

Whether you are single or in a relationship, have children or not, work or are unemployed, housebound or relatively mobile, healthy or have medical issues, you are not alone.

Let's band together and share our stories, our triumphs and our pain. Click here to view this months blogs.
