“Hi! How are you? It’s been too long. You look like you’ve lost weight.” Stop. Right. There. Has anyone ever told you that it looks like you’ve lost weight?

There seems to be this crazy misconception that body positivity cannot include fitness. That just seems silly. The whole point of body-positivity is being positive about your body!
