Blogging Is Overrated

Fat Activists Loving the Skin They’re in

The philosophy of Health at Every Size is pretty simple: You can be healthy and fit no matter your body type.

The Bay Area group is the subject of Gabriela Hasbun’s series “Fat. Fit. Flabulous!” It encourages women to eat right, stay active, and not apologize for their weight.

The group is one of many across the country seeking to battle discrimination and end misconceptions about fat people. Its members say that you don’t have to be thin to be healthy and that activity and community are more likely to lead to a happy life than just focusing on weight loss.
