Worth Your Weight is my $2.15 on fat acceptance and Health at Every Size (HAES). The credo of this blog is “weight is not a choice.” Updated weekly pretty much.
The name of the blog comes from the idea of what if we were worth our weight in gold? People perhaps wouldn’t be so obsessed with losing weight ^_^ As a matter of fact, if I possessed my weight in gold, I would be $2,306,361.60 richer.
I believe with or without the bars of gold, we are worth our weight.
If you happen to believe in the myth that fat is unhealthy, may I recommend reading Kate Harding’s “Don’t You Realize Fat is Unhealthy?” and Big Fat Facts for starters? Paul Campos’ The Obesity Myth is another great introduction to this “radical” idea that fat doesn’t equal unhealthy.
