I first saw this one over at Big Fat Blog.  The video is perfect for anyone who is supportive of the HAES movement or for large-sized ladies who just need a laugh.


Update: I couldn't get the embed to work and am too burnt out from teaching/underwear shopping to try very hard.  Here's the link instead :-)

I followed the link to the Big Fat Blog, and watched the video there since the embed html didn't work. Totally awesome video... that's gotta be a new favourite of mine!

OMG I love it!!!!! However it does contain numbers and has a food-stuffing scene that could be VERY VERY triggering for those with EDs, so could you please turn the link text into a warning? Something like: "contains weight numbers and negative attitudes toward food: possibly VERY triggering for those recovering from EDs"

that's a great video! my favorite line was when was in the clothing store and said something along the lines of, "i don't want to spend an hour and a half in a store looking for my size, not finding it, and then realizing the only thing i can buy here is socks and hair clips." i laughed my ass off because i have been in that situation SO many times... i always end up buying socks or hairclips anyway to make myself feel better. haha.

i just watched the whole video (i was only halfway through when i left my first comment) and she looks AMAZING in a swimsuit! i've been freaking out because summer is coming and i'm being stupid and self-conscious about going to the beach but shit, she looked hot, so what am i worried about?!
