Welcome to the Fat Talk Free Week Campaign!
Fat Talk Free Week
Fat Talk Free Week is a fun, national, 7-day public awareness effort to draw attention to body image issues and change our focus from size to health.
Fat Talk describes all of the statements made in everyday conversation that reinforce unrealistic beauty ideals and contribute to women and men’s dissatisfaction with their bodies.
“I’m so fat,” “Do I look fat in this?”
Even seemingly positive messages can still be Fat Talk, such as: "you look great! Have you lost weight?"
Does this sound familiar? Sign the pledge to End Fat Talk Now!
Join the Fat Talk Free Week Campaign
Through October 2012, The Succeed Foundation encourages you to spread the message of Fat Talk Free Week by engaging with friends and family and encouraging them to End Fat Talk. This can be done through self-expression, the use of social media and even through the creation of public awareness events.
For those of you who wish to participate in the campaign in a more structured way, The Succeed Foundation encourages that your efforts take place during the week of 22nd - 28th October.
