I am not sure how I first came across Whitney Thorp. I honestly just don’t remember. I do remember the first video of her I saw.
Dang girl, go get it!
That video led me to this video.
I’ve been sitting on these videos for awhile now, but I came across them again today. I realized that I encounter the most body shaming from myself.
I talk mad s**t about myself. I use my weight as a punch line for jokes.
So, tonight I am taking a vow. Starting from when I post then, I am going to go 24 hours without body shaming myself. That should be easy, right?
I’m going line dancing tonight. I crack a lot of joke about my dancing. Examples:
Japan felt that earthquake.
It’s like I’m doing the truffle shuffle most of the time.
No wonder very few men in the bar as me to dance, who wants to get into a ballroom hold with a planet?
But, once I hit that publish button… no more! If that means I just have to say less, so be it. If that means that I have to take a compliment about my dancing with a smile and a thanks, instead of a “well, I guess I did okay for taking up so much” then bring it on.
No Body Shame Campaign!
