Happy Birthday To Me!

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!

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.
