Dearest Lioness,
I took several photos for Coffee Club this week; some sexy, some tender, some funny. But something has been sitting heavy in my mind that I need to address. 
I saw the anon message you received from the person complaining about how you post photos of fat people on your blog. Their declaration that fat people couldn’t possibly be sexy, that being fat was automatically unhealthy and that a person should “strive for skinny”- it cut me like a knife. 
Back in January I found your blog and it was (and has been) such a prominent part of my transformation from someone who has always hated herself to someone who embraces all parts of her as special, important and deserving of love. Your celebration of the human body in all its well-photographed forms opened my eyes to what could be for me, and slowly, sometimes painfully, I’ve set up the shots, set the timer and posed. And again. And again. 
For the last year I’ve work almost as hard at loving myself for who I am as I have been trying to “strive for skinny” for twenty years. Two decades of dieting, over-exercising, hiding from people, from cameras, from my self-worth. All because I used to feel the way that person feels about fat people, about myself. 
I didn’t understand how I could be healthy. My BMI says I’m “morbidly obese”. Morbidly. Though I had no health problems, was regularly athletic and aerobic, ate a healthy, balanced diet I was expected to drop dead at any minute due to the extra weight on my body. When men weren’t interested in me, I assumed it was because I was too fat for love. When men did pay attention to me, I assumed it was because they had some weird fat fetish. This was the most unhealthy thing about me, this way of thinking, this obsession with “striving for skinny”.
Then last year, several things happened to change this damaging thought process that had ruled most of my life. I stopped weighing myself, I surrounded myself with body positive people and I took my life back.
For the first time in my life, I’m comfortable in my skin, I feel worthy of love and I’m happy. And I feel sorry for all those people who think I need to be skinny to have that. 
Much Love,
Tremendous Magic

I’ve long been a fan of your photography. Your images exude an honesty that is incredibly refreshing. Thank you for taking on, and tackling this issue. Thank you for telling us your story in a way that so many of us, men and women, will be able to relate to. Truthfully, not much surprises me on tumblr anymore, but that Anon shocked the hell out of me. You are intelligent, inspirational, and beautiful. I’m glad you’ve found a safe haven here. 
A neurotic confession. I’ve learned that i’m selfish and irritable and really bad with numbers.  So when i’ve no conclusions left to jump to, no proverbial dramatic peak to throw myself off of - i delete you from my phone.  And i wait.  If you never call back you should know, i’m the most passionate person you’ll ever have the experience of walking away from. And i really like you. (Source: asleepylioness)
