I am fat. I am running.
I am a 36-year old woman with a BMI of roughly 34 (I give this number for reference about my size, even though BMI is a bullshit measure). For 3 years I’ve been learning to run and tackling milestones– up to 7.5 miles now and the sky’s the limit!
When I’m not running, I’m lifting weights (working on bench-pressing bears), swimming, and dabbling in yoga.
I practice Fat Acceptance and Health At Every Size. I do not diet, and I do not seek weight loss. I try my best to accept my body the way it is right now, every day.
