SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"The joys of (being an SSBBW) is we are more down to earth and more understanding. We know how it is to be avoided and we try not to avoid people because of that and I think we are more beautiful than the skinny women." ~ MeLissa [SSBBW]

How to Keep Your Beauty Resolutions for the New Year

Instead of the usual cycle of making new year resolutions and lofty plans that we do not keep for up to a month after January, it may be better that we instead look back on the past year and spend time being thankful for how everything turned out. The fact that we are alive and can read this post is reason enough to smile and be appreciative. Regardless of how the past year went, it must have been a year of growth in some way—in our jobs, families, relationships, career, school, emotions, spirituality or just our outlook on life. When we set apart these short times for reflection and gratefulness, we add to our beauty and inner glow. And from these moments, we can figure out what our moves in the New Year should be.

One way to make a resolution that lasts is to improve on already existing habits with a positive goal. Instead of a plan to start going to the gym every other day (which we have never or rarely done before), we can instead plan to stop driving to work (existing habit), and walk (improvement on existing habit) so that we can get healthier or see more of the world everyday (positive goal).

By improving on existing habits, we make it easier for ourselves to remember to do the new habit. And with a positive goal underlying it, we can motivate ourselves to keep with the resolution longer.

This infographic from is an example of beauty goals we may want for the New Year. Depending on you, these may or may not be relevant. What matters as you make your beauty resolutions for the year is that you start with gratefulness and make resolutions that have a positive and measurable effect on you.

What are your beauty goals for the year? Do share with us. Let’s motivate each other to stay beautiful and happy as we start a wonderful 2016!

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others. SSBBW mag has a blog section. If you haven't checked it out, you should! SSBBW Magazine Blogs

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.

Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:
