Beauty comes in all sizes  
While we're celebrating a positive body image for large women, let's remember that naturally thin women are also beautiful in their own unique way. Please don't assume that a woman is not eating enough if she's thin or eating way too much if she's fat! You cannot tell if a person has an eating disorder merely by looking at him or her. There are lots of average weight people with eating disorders and non-eating disordered folks who are very thin or overweight because of their genetic make up. (Or because they crash dieted for years like me and their body gained weight in self defense.)

Check out this post on behalf of thin women everywhere.

Flowers are beautiful in all shapes, colors and sizes and so are we!

I've always thought it was cruel when people feel entitled to criticize women that are too thin.

When I was at my absolute most unhealthy, riddled with an eating disorder, I received a lot of compliments about my body but I hated every inch of it.
