Since I’m making so many people mad by daring to take pictures of myself while fat, I figured I might as well keep the angry anti-fat bloggers mad and post my most revealing OOTD that I have in my backlog. So, here’s something for ignorant assholes to fume over and send me shitty messages about!
Bodysuit- Gisela Ramirez size XL Pants- Deb size 3X
I just want every person who takes time out of their day to rain on my body-love parade to see that I couldn’t possibly care less what they say.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, my friends. I have a shitload of expenses to cover in the run up to Milwaukee Zine Fest and not enough paycheck to cover them, so I’m having a sale!

So I had the misfortune of finding out that a photo taken of me on vacation by my boyfriend, was stolen and used without my permission here on the lovely r/fatpeoplehateon reddit. It not only disappoints me that people think that this behavior is okay, but that this subreddit even exists and hasn’t been removed at this point. There are TONS of photos of (mostly) women posted there; selfies stolen their personal blogs/facebooks/instagrams what have you (WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION), and posted on this horrible subreddit for people to harass them and leave hundreds of negative comments bravely behind their computer screens where no one can see them. I have always struggled with my weight and found it hard to get dressed and leave my bed some days, and have only recently started to accept the person I am after years of depression and health issues. I feel extremely violated and hurt that someone thought it was okay to take something that isn’t theirs, and use it for their own amusement and kicks.
We have since contacted reddit requesting them to remove this subreddit, but I find that doubtful considering how many removal requests they have probably received in the past for this forum, and it still remains active.
All I ask from you guys, is that you can please signal boost this post and hopefully get this horrible subreddit taken down for good for the sake of the poor unsuspecting people whose privacy has been violated and self worth diminished by these garbage people who have nothing better to do.
Transformation Tuesday! The “Before” photo was taken in 2008 when I was 17. This photo was taken during a time when I was calorie counting, to the point that I limited myself to around 1,000 calories a day. I lost 70 pounds and weighed in at 150. I wish I had more full-length photos to show you, but unfortunately I was so insecure and embarrassed of my body that I required most of my photos to be chest-up. Also, I would have never been caught dead on the beach in an actual swimsuit.
On the right is my “After” photo, taken in 2014 at age 23. During the time period in between the photos, I began my radical journey of self-love and body acceptance. I don’t owe it to anyone to be their version of aesthetically pleasing, I don’t owe it to anyone to lose weight, and I don’t owe it to anyone to be ashamed of my body. Who I am now—all 220 pounds of me— has more confidence and zest for life than I ever did before.
