Size Acceptance is for every Body
As a plus-sized African American woman, I have been called every type of derogatory name in the book.  Being marginalized on three fronts: race, gender, and size caused me to develop an internal self-hate issue that was so devastating; it began to manifest itself physically as an acute auto-immune disorder, which is also defined as "a self-attacking disease."
For me, it took almost losing my life, before I realized that I was worthy of the very best that life has to offer.
Once I had what Oprah likes to call, an "O" moment, I was able to make healthier lifestyle choices.However, there is such a thing as a meantime. In the meantime, until I reach my weight loss goals, I am going to love myself through my transition; extending that love to my fellow brothers and sisters of all shapes, sizes, colors, and socio-economic groups as they try to figure out their own personal journeys.
One thing I'm not going to do is apologize for my plus-sized status or feel bad because I have a double-digit dress size. I love the body that I'm in because it's mine; and if someone has a problem with that well, then, it is THEIR problem.
The Plus-Sized Sister Movement is not a nutritional program; it's an entertainment company specifically geared towards the promotion of "positive body consciousness."
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing and expect a different result. I propose size acceptance for all people irregardless of what the scale says.  I propose replacing the self-loathing mantra with a healthy dose of self-love. 
Obesity is now at epidemic proportions.  It's time for a change.  It's time for people of size to be treated with respect.  How can you conjure up the strength to go through the process of a major lifestyle change, when you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror? Before the process of change can begin, an individual must come to a point of acceptance. Acceptance is self-love. 
So, stop hating on big people. And big people stop hating on yourselves.
I wish you all the very best.  Even those wonderful haters that like to send anonymous emails, telling me how fat I am; I love you too. It's your hate that fuels my self-love fire; that keeps this plus-sized sister going strong; fighting hard to change perception so that this world can be a better place for those of us who need a little more room in the seat; and for those of us who don't.
With love and appreciation for taking the time to review my website and my project,
