No, it’s not my birthday (that’d be December 2nd, if you’re keeping track). But it’s the birthday of Big Fit Deal! I started this little experiment two years ago. I published my first post on July 5, 2012. I can’t believe it’s been two years already!
In the past two years, I’ve written 292 posts.
In the past two years, we have collectively posted 1,139 comments.
In the past two years, the site has garnered over 29,000 views.
Those are pretty impressive numbers! But I want to do more. I want to reach more people, talk to more people. I want more people to realize that fat shaming and hate are not acceptable. I want more people to start on the journey to body acceptance and love. I want more people to just flat-out start treating everyone with respect, no matter what they look like, what their health status is, or how they choose to live their lives.
Look, I know BFD is a very small fish in a very, very big pond. But I believe in the message as much today as I did two years ago. And with your help and support, I know that over the next two years, we can spread that message further and farther. Together we can make the world a happier, healthier, nicer place to live in.
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
