This week, as part of my job, I have been working on promoting an international campaign on the college campus where I work. The program, Fat Talk Free Week, is aimed at combating our society's thin ideal and standard of beauty. Its goal is to raise awareness of how our everyday language affects the way women and young girls everywhere view themselves, their bodies, and the world around them. Fat talk is around us every day, and I can't pretend them I'm innocent or immune to it. It's so woven into the fabric of every day life, that its often hard to even detect when we use it. But we do, I do, almost all of us do. But after promoting this campaign and doing what I do every single day (which yes, I know, I'm still vague about), I'm starting to see just how dangerous fat talk is. So I encourage you to watch this video and realize just how destructive our words can be. I'm not perfect, I'm not always good to myself, and I often speak before thinking. But after watching this video a million times and working with college women on a daily basis, I'm trying to be more mindful of my words and the impact they have on me, my friends, my family, the strangers I meet in line, and the daughter I hope to maybe one day have. So this week, I'm making a conscious effort to watch my words and find new things to focus on. Won't you join me?
