Possibly the Only HNT in Which I Will Ever Participate

Yes that is really me. Yes, I am really that fat. There is a picture from the front that goes with this one, but I highly doubt that I will be brave enough to publish it.

Goodness knows that my poll results would have come out very differently if I had published this photo before posting that sex poll in the sidebar.

TS - I have some words:

Honesty
Truth
Courage
Dignity
Bravado
Defiance
Boldness
Pride

..and so many many more

Thank you for sharing such an intimacy with us.

Hugs

Fiona - Whew! I'm so glad the first comment was a positive one. You are right that it took every one of those qualities to post this picture. That picture is reality. The only way to change reality is to first face what it is. Well, there it is. Time for some change.

Who cares what the cultural definition of beauty might be? Your courage attests to your beauty.

Thank you for being beautiful, and sharing so much of yourself. I admire you for sharing such a beautifully intimate portrait of yourself. Just lovely.

Fiona posted a link to this on her site, and therefore led me to you.
I genuinely admire your bravery - I would certainly never have the courage to do this.
Bravo!

I admire your bravery. Our culture is not very accepting of people outside of what the media deems is the ideal. Good on ya.

I've found another hero! Fiona's post sent me here. I will remind you that one of the images that has passed down through the ages is that of Venus of Willendorf- revered, loved and adored for centuries. You, my dear, are a Goddess!

I also came from Fiona's blog and I agree with her and all the other commenters. You are brave and courageous, not fat. The fat can disappear but the fortitude you have won't ever.

be well.

I applaud you...you are such a brave and honest person. I have a stronger newfound respect for you, TS.

Trueself said...

Well, gee, thank you one and all for all the kudos. Who knew showing my big butt could garner so much attention, and positive attention at that!?!?! I'm absolutely blown away. You are all too kind.

Fusion said...

Very late to comment TS, but you know why. I agree with everyone else here. I think you were very brave and more importantly you show your positive self esteem with your post. Good for you.
