    I’m actually with them on the wording. Weight loss is often approached as the only healthy way to be but if we could have a reality check with it or a diet plan focused on maintenance or health in general I’d love that. Problem is all the ads for it target people with disordered eating. [...]

    Thanks for this. I’ve been fighting an eating disorder for years. Got down to my lowest point literally and figuratively a few months ago and just when I had convinced myself it might be a good idea to eat from time to time I opened up facebook to find one of those ads that says [...]

    I know, right?? There’s plenty of kickass women in martial arts. In fact adult women’s karate matches are a bloodsport. The men sorta trade punches and it’s all very fun and cool, but the women absolutely go for it. It puts the men to shame every single time. I’m small so one of my teachers [...]
