this week, october 13-17 is Fat Talk Free Week. that's right! NO FAT TALK. can you do it?
NO "oh my god, i'm so fat."
NO "oh my god, she's so fat."
NO "oh my god, what size are you?"
NO "oh my god, i'm doing The Zone/Atkins/Master Cleanse this week."
NO "oh my god, i haven't worked out this week. I feel HUGE."
you get the picture.
in junior high, if we'd tried this, my group of friends would have sat in silence for a full week. what else to discuss?
it's the sorority Tri-Delta that is responsible for introducing FTFW as well as for co-creating a wonderful body image intervention program called Reflections. i'm going to resist making a sorority girl joke because these women have done wonderful thing.
(what's a sorority girl's mating call? oh my god, i am SO DRUNK!)
turns out i couldn't resist. sorry.
check out this video, sign the pledge to abstain from Fat Talk and then forward the video to your friends. you can also sign up to receive a Daily Challenge every day this week. they also have this bold T-shirt for sale. i think i need it.
here's Monday's challenge:
Your Daily Challenge for October 13: The next time someone gives you a compliment, rather than objecting ("No, I'm so fat!"), practice taking a deep breath and saying, "Thank you."i still struggle with that one. just ask The Cute. luckily, he gives me plenty of opportunities to practice.
