Someday when I am rich I will buy all the plus size clothes

I’ll just put them in a big pile and dive in and swim around in them like Scrooge McDuck

Check out this pasta I threw together—caramelized onion, avocado, chickpeas, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, turmeric, and lemon. I caramelized the onions first and then added in everything else while I cooked the noodles and let it all simmer together. I wasn’t expecting much since I didn’t really have the energy today to do anything spectacular today, but this turned out amazing! I definitely recommend trying it!

I want to print this off and show it to the woman at work who’s always complaining about “those damn border jumpers”

And then crumple the paper up and make her eat it

Let’s talk about angles. 
It was hard for me to publish this picture, but I think it relates to something very important that a lot of people who struggle with body image have to deal with—the fear of viewing photos of oneself from a “bad” angle. There was a time in my life where seeing one candid photo of my face or body had the power to ruin my entire day (and when I was younger, the power to drag me back down into disordered eating.) It’s a very real issue that many, many people struggle with.
So to combat this tendency towards self hatred, I started taking pictures of myself from “bad” angles. I took them from below, from the side where you can see my double chin. I also took photos of myself without makeup, with my hair greasy and unmade. And most of these I honestly deleted. But slowly I began to keep more and more of them.
Nowadays I no longer avoid seeing the pictures that other people have snapped of me. I no longer shudder with self loathing when I open my phone camera the wrong way and see a double chin or a puffy cheek looking back at me. Because I am not that photograph. I am a complex, multi-faceted being, not just a two-dimensional picture, and so are you. I do not have to hold myself to this standard of “perfection” any longer; I am big, my body takes up space, my chubby cheeks smile and frown just like yours and my chunky chin quivers when I’m sad and lifts itself high in the air with pride, just like everyone else’s. These “flaws” are as much a part of me as any other aspect of myself, and I don’t reject them or hate them anymore.
Learning that I don’t have to be this perfect, smiling, stunning being every second of every day for me was the key to true self love; I am allowed to feel pretty, and I am allowed to feel ugly too. I can feel shapely and curvy sometimes and I can feel chunky and heavy sometimes as well. And when these imperfect states of my being are captured on camera, they no longer tear my heart apart. Instead, they make me feel whole, as if these imperfections are a part of myself I never learned to love until now.

I’ve been trying to eat less fast food lately but last night I just could not find the energy to cook, so we went to Taco Bell. If you take off the cheese and sour cream, and sub beans for beef, you can have a vegan crunch wrap! They’re very good!
