It’s International No Diet Day party people! Slim fast shakes, waist trainers, obsessive calorie-counting, and clothing that’s been sitting in the back of your closet that doesn’t fit with tags still on BE GONE! But seriously this is a day we should all celebrate regardless of our size. It’s a day where we all can stand up against the diet demons that try to suggest the myth that weight is mutable — something that we can inherently change—that it’s a simple ‘state of mind’ as to whether someone is fat or skinny. It’s a day when we can focus on who we are as whole people rather than exclusively focusing on the aesthetics. Now don’t get us wrong it’s not a crime to invest in ones aesthetics BUT when looks become the center of how someone defines themselves exclusively that’s when we’ve got some self-reflecting to do!
