Just because someone does not look like your picture of health does not mean they are not taking care of themselves or unaware of their appearance. Cherie Bachman of @thickfunfabulous breaks down the pain and beauty of embracing a fat body. She courageously tells her story of coming to self-love and how deciding to love herself transformed her sense of self and providing her the tools she needed to take care of herself. Listen as Cherie challenges the perception that fat people who are happy are promoting obesity, “People who are thicker, who are fat, can be joyful, and enjoy their lives.” She makes it clear that “It’s always important to take care of your body. Period. What that looks translates to is different for everybody individually,” and asks me to speak to weight gain from an Ayurvedic perspective. This interview is raw and to the point. Let it open your heart in love.
