Redefining Body Image: lovethyfatness: thisisthinprivilege: “Finally, the results of the Look...
“Finally, the results of the Look Ahead study were published in 2012 with no fanfare because after all the years of treatment and support, the average weight loss was around 7 pounds. “Why? Why?” I ask myself, “Why does the scientific community refuse to admit this approach has failed?” There are a lot of reasons. The so-called obesity experts are still with us. Many of them are in their 80s and 90s, but they don’t dare retire and give up the influence they have on the public and the government. After all, if weight loss is not possible, then they have wasted their entire careers trying to achieve it. Then there is the aspect of “following the money.” What would happen to all of these obesity experts, diet programs, diet products, diet books, and diet gurus if we gave up trying to get people to lose weight?”
I thoroughly… thoroughly suggest reading the above quoted article in full.

Will Graham is shopping for the perfect sweater at good will
then he stumbles upon it, the perfect sweater
it has a dog pattern
“Yes” he whispers “This is my design”
