i just love his fat self

Hi!! How'd you get the confidence to perform burlesque as a plus size woman? I'm fat & trying to love myself and just need some tips

I hope you don’t mind me posting this publicly.

Body acceptance has been a long journey for me. 10 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to do this, and even when I first started I was self conscious about some things. But it’s been a matter of pushing myself as an artist that’s silenced the doubts.

My best advice is to continue to expose yourself to plus size bodies, to remind yourself that you’re your own harshest critic, and surround yourself with people who are on the bopo path themselves.

I would say it’s my first plus-sized!reader imagine but most of mine could be imagined in such a way, so it’s my first plus-size!reader specific imagine.

Also, to everyone reading this: you are perfect the way you are and I love you. Thank you for reading my writing.

Harry had never in all his life had such a Christmas dinner. A hundred fat, roast turkeys; mountains of roast and boiled potatoes; platters of chipolatas; tureens of buttered peas, silver boats of thick rich gravy and cranberry sauce – and stacks of wizard crackers every few feet along the table.

pissy post but i hate how every fanfiction involving fat and overweight patrick stump is either an:

- eating disorder
- body worship peterick
- or a pwp/weight kink

literally all i want is a fanfic dedicated to patrick just loving himself. no more romanization. just self love and acceptance. soft confidence and warm smiles. please.

matisse: how do you express your love to your friends/family/significant other?

little mundane things, i think, just hanging together and laughing about stuff. i’m no good at huge declarations and love poems or whatever. i think the tiny things mean a lot more.

klee: in a library full of books, which five will you never get sick of rereading?

hmmmmmm………good omens, count of monte cristo, brothers karamazov, prisoner of azkaban, hamlet

botticelli: what is that one moment in your life that makes you feel proud?

just one???? transferring schools.

harring: what is your all-time favorite band, movie, and painting?

band: flogging molly (but also fats waller and his rhythm)
movie: bring it on or persepolis
painting: fuck uh….maybe courbet’s desperate man self portrait

Today, I went apple picking with my best friend and his Mom.

Today, I was okay with her taking pictures of me and was not self conscious about looking fat.

Today, I was able to hike up and down the orchard without huffing and puffing - sweating and miserable.

Today, I was able to be a normal, happy, confident 21 year old woman.

Am I at my goal? No.

Am I still fat? Absolutely.

Do I still have work to do? Hell yeah!

But this journey isn’t just about losing weight - this journey is about learning to love yourself unconditionally….which I am learning how to do every single day.
