Anonymous asked: (part 2) That is the only deterrent from me having sex and I hate it. I am so embarrassed because it's so f*ckin digusting! I've tried bleaching, lightening products, and i've gotten so desperate that I'm buying expensive make up to cover it up. I've done research and I have a feeling there's a chance it might the that insulin-pigmentation relation to diabetes etc. I don't have health care and there's no way I have money to fix this. I just feel horrible and so insecure! =(

I only got the part 2 of this message, but I think that I get the gist of what you are talking about. Do you have the dark skin on your neck, armpits, inner thighs? I have this and it does cause me to doubt my sexiness from time to time. Growing up, I got the message that I was gross because of it and I really had self esteem issues because of it.

I still have this issue, even though it has gotten better because of the things that I do for it, though it isn’t a complete fix. I will share them with you though and you can see how well it works for you.

First of all, I take gymnema (standard process is the best brand because it is the strongest. It is expensive though, so you may try one of the cheaper brands like I’m having to do right now because we are low on the moola. Look on Amazon for gymnema sylvestre. Also, you may want to consider cutting out simple starches and sugars from your diet. Red potatoes instead of russets, brown rice pasta instead of regular, agave nectar or coconut palm sugar or stevia instead of regular sugar etc. When I eat “right” my dark patches are lighter.

Next, I exfoliate every time I shower, with those scrubby gloves. Then I use apple cider vinegar and dab it on the areas with a cotton ball. Then I moisturize with coconut oil. I have a hard time being consistent with anything I do regarding my beauty regimen, so I just do it here and there as I see fit.

While all this stuff helps, I think the most important part is to learn to recognize when you are engaging in negative self-talk and learn strategies to counteract them. Their are tons of cognitive behavioral strategies that you can employ to help you.

I’m loving me!

Anyone ever see their Sim walk around the house naked without a blurry blob hovering over them? This is a first for me. I mean, she did just lose her father to old age, but c’mon! Her little brother is trying to comfort her… but I’m not sure how I feel about that lol.

Outside showers are the best! Nothing like being naked in nature.

Still think fat discrimination isn’t a huge problem? Still think it’s not up there with sexism and racism? Still think that fat people don’t get abused all the fucking time? I am so fucking sick of not being able to exist in my own body. I am so sick of getting stares and laughs and name-called, and having my picture taken just for leaving the house and going to places like Walmart or a restaurant. How dare I, a fat person go shopping with my also fat husband. How dare I eat a sandwich, or any food at all. Or in tonight’s case; how dare I ride my bicycle in public.
A car full of men thought it would be funny to call out “Hey Fatty!” before literally swerving in my direction and nearly hitting me. I panicked and tried to swerve out of the way, and ended up skidding across the pavement. They laughed hard as they drove away. Do you think this is fucking funny?? Those pictures are from when the wounds were fresh. I am now even more red and bruised. The whole right side of my face is swollen and it hurts to open my eye. This is so funny. I am fat, so this is what I deserve right? I am so fucking tired of society seeing fat people as non-human. I usually let it go and move on, laugh even, at how small-minded people are…but today I am really hurt. Physically hurt. And so tired. These wounds are what fat people receive daily, you just can’t always see them.

I don’t think a lot of people get how prevalent this kind of treatment towards fat people is. We don’t always get run off the road and get physically injured, but it can instill a certain kind of paranoia when you leave the house.

Recently on Facebook, I saw that Brenda Oelbaum of the Venus of Willendorf Project had excitedly shown off a book purchase— a title I was unfamiliar with until then.

She bought Bridget’s Diet Cookbook, a 1972 gem described by the vintage seller as a “Humorous Semi-Nude 1972 Fat Acceptance ‘Health & Exercise’ Send-up - Camp / Kitsch Humor turned Fetish Collectible”! [Photos above from the Etsy listing.]

Tonight I went on an internet safari in search of more information about Bridget. I found this interview from Dimensions Magazine, in which she (real name Dawn McDowell) discusses NAAFA, fat acceptance, and navigating dating as a fat nude model. I guess the books were meant to be a joke, but they ended up selling millions!

I love learning about these sort of unintentional contributions to body positivity. And even though it’s somewhat triggery as a diet cookbook, the tongue-in-cheek content alongside the lovely photos of Bridget/Dawn are a rather wonderful thing.

Here are some of the other ‘Bridget’ products:

This is our history.

SO GOOD
