Sometimes I love the internet. You can Google any malady and know you’re not alone. You can get inspired or be entertained reading dozens of articles about the Breaking Bad finale (not that I did that or anything). You can recycle your phone book upon receiving it on your front porch to make room on your shelf for more important things, because anything you need to know can be found on the internet with a few clicks.
And sometimes I hate the internet. Like when trolls viciously spew negativity for no reason. And when people start twitter hashtags like #fatshamingweek. Or when those who start stupid hashtags like that needlessly pick on people online.
But, it seems like good often prevails in situations like this, as there are awesome retorts to this ridiculous idea and those who are taking a low internet moment and bringing the positivity by declaring it #BodyConfidenceWeek instead. As moms, as women, as people going through life, our bodies change a lot. We gain weight, we lose weight. But we all need reminders now and then to love our bodies for all that they are, and this was my reminder. So to support the idea, I’m sharing my favorite body confidence moments—moments when I absolutely loved my body without hesitation. Share your own to help kick this #fatshamingweek idea to the curb.
