Sometimes it's hard to not let the haters get you down. Even when there's a lot of love and pride out there in the blogosphere, it seems like sometimes a single negative comment can hurt enough to overwhelm the empowering messages out there. Maybe it's because I'm too new to this. Recently healed wounds re-open fairly easy. Maybe I just need to hang around long enough to develop good scar tissue against fatphobics. Maybe my SAD is just kicking up with a vengeance in the face of the gray skies and ice storms. Or, maybe I need to get more sleep so I don't get all crotchety in the mornings before coffee :-)

Whatever the cause of my current blah's, I know that the best way to combat them is with something positive. In searching for inspiration, I've put together a Youtube playlist of fat and size-positive videos, from Joy Nash to Velvet D'amour. So on this dreary, icy (at least here) Monday morning, I give you my affirmations playlist. The player below should play them in order (there's 15, some quite short). If you want to pick and choose, just follow the link. If you have a suggestion of one to add, please comment with a link!

I have yet to look at the videos, (they don't allow us to YouTube at work) but responding to the initial post itself, I agree. Even though we are in the midst of a group of empowering and inspirational mediums for fat acceptance it's easy to get pushed off track by one comment. I can relate 100% but I guess we're still in the process of developing thicker skin, no?
