As a woman constantly struggling with body image, a recent research into weight stigma helped me think from a new perspective. The media hurts us every day judging those of us with obesity. We all eat cheeseburgers, ice cream, and pizza every day and never do anything remotely healthy. I know better. This piece was my way of giving myself the powerful aura to ignore the poor commentary and remember who I am.
