Are you seriously sick of the body positive movement????

I don’t understand how this can even be a thought but it seems as though people are growing tired of this positive movement.  What some people see as inspiring self love promotion, others view as applauding obesity, diabetes and overall unhealthiness.  That is not the case at all.  The body positive movement is all about…

To My Future Daughter
