I’ve been putting plenty of things off for plenty of time because there has always been something more important at hand. In many ways, this was not such a bad thing because it helped me to get over the B.S. in my head that could have kept me from putting myself out there and starting this blog and business.
Perfection is simply a way to avoid taking risks. If it’s not perfect, you don’t put it out there, and if you don’t put it out there you’ll never really fail.
But this is also a heap of steaming crap because in order to make your mark in the world, you’ve gotta take the risk, you’ve gotta leap. So I leapt and started blogging here on WP.com.
2 years later, I’m finally ready to take the next step and leap to blogging on my own self-hosted site. My address will remain the same (www.tianadodson.com) but if you’re following me here on WordPress you won’t be seeing my new stuff. I’m not getting rid of the old stuff, so if you feel nostalgic and want to check out a post you read before, feel free. It’ll be here until it causes some problem and I need to get rid of it. But if you want to continue your hate loss journey and following along with me on mine, then join my email newsletter, follow me on Twitter, or like me on Facebook to get all the updates.
It’s been a pleasure to be able to share my journey with you. I hope you choose to come along for the next part as well.
Your Fat Health Coach,
If you’re here and reading this, you’ve probably taken the first step to learning to love your body. However, you may not be sure how to continue. It’s a difficult thing to undo all of those years spent hating and shaming yourself and your body.
That’s why I’ve created the 6-week (Re)Discover Your Body e-Course to help you with just that!
Be bold and take the second step along with me by checking out the course. I’ll see you there!
(Re)Discover Your Body: 6 self care practices to reunite you and your body
Most of us were born fat. We had those adorable, chunky baby cheeks and thigh rolls that made mommas swoon from the cuteness. But somewhere along the way, we picked up fat that no longer caused happiness for us and those around us. The fat that had once made people want to kiss us and lovingly squeeze us became a sign of worthlessness and a reason to shame.
No matter where we may be on our collective journey to overcome those negative feelings normally associated with our body size, that size has a story. A Fatstory.
I know mine and now I want to know yours. I’m researching what other peoples’ fat history is like to determine how I can better help people with my body love coaching. If I’m going to really make a difference in the world by guiding others to love their bodies, I want to have a broad spectrum understanding of what others experience as fat folk.
Gift me with your attention for a short, 30-minute interview about how you found your way to choosing to love your body. I’m interested to find out what path you took to make the choice in order to help others just like us find their way here too. If you’re far along or just beginning, all input is valuable. There is no cost to you except your time and openness. Share as much or as little as you like.
Interested? Then click on the image below to schedule your interview at a time that works best for you.
I’m looking forward to experiencing your Fatstory!
Got some free time from October 9 through 11? Yes or no, you should check out this year’s Fat Activism Conference: Tools for the Revolution!
3 whole days of talks and panels by people devoted to changing the status quo where us fat folk are marginalized and shamed.
No, you do not have to be an activist yourself to join in and learn. However, if you’re reading this and interested in learning to love your fat body you’re already engaging in activism at the most basic level: daring to challenge the norm.
So click on over and register to enjoy the event live or listen later to the recordings. Plenty of options if you want to join in and own the recordings, even on a budget!
Hope to see you there!
There is ONE thing you have to do to get started on your journey. You ready?
