"I am fat. I have a belly that wobbles when I walk and a bum that echoes my movements. Don't get me wrong. This is not some life-changing confession a la Alcoholics Anonymous: "Hello, my name is Lara and I am fat." Rather, it's an easy way for you to picture me, climbing up a robe, ass over end into the back of a rocking Indonesian fishing boat, desperately trying not to bounce into the propeller and to retain, well, at least a crumb of dignity.

Backpacking is always adventurous, but it takes on many new twists when a plus-size body meets rickety transport, bamboo bridges, and tiny locals who find all Westerners- let alone those with wobbly bellies- startling.

---Lara McKinley, "Backpacking with a Belly in Indonesia"


I took this from the book Sand in my Bra I thought it was cute and funny! But I'm a girl so I would!

Aww, I quite like this, I am all for size-positive quotes and art and all of that, especially with regard to travelling. Thanks for posting.
