October is one of my favorite times of year!  Yes, GO CARDS!!!! But also for Fat Talk Free Week!  I wish we could educate every month on appreciating what we have and positive body image.

Every Body is Beautiful!  No Body is Perfect!

Fat Talk Free Week is a five day effort to increase public knowledge of dangers of fat talk and the effect it has on people’s self esteem and confidence.

Fat talk describes all statements made in everyday conversations that emphasize the thin ideal and add to people’s dissatisfaction with their body.

Examples:
1. “I need to lose 5 pounds.”
2. “I’m so fat.”
3. “You look great. Did you lose weight?”
4. “I can’t wear that.  It make me look fat.”

Stay tuned for tips to have a healthy body image
