The Other F Word

We all do it: the self-deprecating jokes, the insults muttered under our breaths. Fat talk—negative, self-shaming body talk—affects 93% of women and is apparent just about everywhere, from the office to dinner with friends to our Facebook feeds. This month, Special K is fighting against these hurtful comments with its #FightFatTalk campaign, which asks women to counter body-shaming comments online with positive posts. It's made us reflect on all those New Year's resolutions to lose weight or fit into a smaller size. Wouldn't a better resolution be to think positively about our own bodies every day?

What do you think of the #FightFatTalk campaign? Let us know in the comments.
