Fat Talk Free Week: October 16-22

"I feel fat."

"I look huge in these jeans."

"I can't have dessert, I've already been so bad this week."

Sound familiar? This is what we call "fat talk," and it's hurting girls and women everywhere. But you can do something to stop it--we all can. Become a champion for change this Fat Talk Free Week. Make the pledge to eliminate fat talk from your conversations.


Did you sign the pledge? Tell us how it feels to be fat talk free!
