Fat Girl Walking: Sex, Food, Love, and Being Comfortable in your Skin..... Every Inch of It

In today's society, the "Perfect Image" in social media is everything. The perfect selfie on Instagram, the perfect look on YouTube, and the perfect body in the fitness community. Also, the damaging reliance on Photoshop and other photo editing tools to make photos look "flawless". Where are the tools that encourages people to post natural pictures on Instagram? encourages people to make YouTube videos without caked-on makeup? encourages people to have a slice a pizza, and still live a healthy lifestyle?

Fat Girl Walking: Sex, Food, Love, and Being Comfortable in your Skin..... Every Inch of It by Brittany Gibbons is an amazing book to encourage people to feel comfortable with your skin, and make their dreams come true. This book is not another "fluffy rainbows and sunshine" story from other social media influencers..... she is real and honest about her life inside and outside of social media.

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 13- NOW WHAT?:

NOW WHAT?

My fitness and body aspirations at thirty are different from my aspirations at twenty. At twenty, I just assumed I’d work out until I was so tiny, people became concerned for my health and I’d roll my eyes at them from my Victoria’s Secret bras and Abercrombie jeans. Now I just want to maintain my current weight so I don’t need to buy new clothes. When you look at weight loss, it’s often clothing driven. Weddings, vacations, and high school reunions, all things you are supposed to be thin for. But what if you have a gorgeous wedding dress in your current size, loads of flattering bathing suits, and a killer pair of jeans? Starving myself has suddenly become a moot point. I have options; I’m no longer a fashion pariah. So where does that leave my weight? Well, unless I’m sitting atop you, what I weigh is really none of your business.

I like to put good food in my mouth, and while I am aware of the calories I ingest, instead of cutting them I make them count. I have a full-on love affair with food, appreciating the different cultures and processes within it. In fact, I take entire vacations around eating. It’s how I remember where I’ve been; I’ve either eaten, thrown up, or started my period without the proper supplies there.

Beignets with my best friend in New Orleans. Too much rum on the beaches of Playa del Carmen on our second honeymoon. Orlando, Florida, the city of emergency men’s tube sock maxi-pads.

You see, these flabby parts aren’t problem areas; they’re parts of a scrapbook.
— Chapter 13: NOW WHAT?- Fat Girl Walking: Sex, Food, Love, and Being Comfortable in your Skin..... Every Inch of It by Brittany Gibbons

I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger who is born with Eczema. I've lived with this skin condition my whole life. Sure, I have been bullied for not having the "perfect" skin. But, it does not stop me from writing and creating YouTube videos about beauty and lifestyle, writing about nerdy things, and building my dream to become a successful blogger. I can feel comfortable without caking on makeup everyday. I don't need to look or feel "flawless" to get attention. Just being myself is enough. So, I challenge you to walk outside without makeup, do not alter your photos to look beautiful, and just live life to the fullest.
