New Years Revolutions

Lynne Murray says:

A New Year’s Revolution is in the works (no, not wrestling pay-per-view or Myspace folk/indie/punk singles–I guess there are a few revolutions going on for the holiday). This particular celebration aims to proclaim body-positive goals to replace the body-bashing shamefest of weight loss goals that stir up clouds of anxiety to start the new year.

Health at Any Size: Join the Revolution logo

A group of Health at Every Size advocates led by the irrepressible Marilyn Wann are planning New Year’s Revolutionary social networking actions such as changing Facebook and Twitter pictures to various body positive images and posting some ways to enjoy the new year in the body you have as it is right now. Check out the beautiful resource page for the project (as mentioned in the logo above): Amanda Evans put together much of the content, Pattie Thomas created and polished the blog and Amanda Levitt of Communications of a Fat Waitress and Love Your Body Detroit created the awesome,wonderful HAES logo image. You too can change your Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking icons to this logo: Marilyn Wann and I and many others are.

I love the idea of positive goals and for my own contribution I’m going to post a snippet about a different fat positive novel or short story collection every day in January on my Live Journal, Facebook and Twitter .
(I’ve got more than a few in mind already).
