As I was creating my website today, everything came together fairly easily. That is, until I searched for images to use. There is a very poor selection of photos of larger people doing anything much beyond eating (junk food, of course) or attempting to lose weight (with scales, measuring tapes and very sad faces) on major photo image sites. Today I tried both Shutterstock and Adobe with very limited success.
We are out there. We are on the beach, on the street and in the gyms. We do yoga, we run, we lift. We knit, we read, we teach, we do a million things. I think we are becoming more visible, but it is time we become more represented in the media.
We can also become more visible on social media. I think it's time to show the world who we are and what we do! The more we post photos of ourselves living our lives, the more visible we become.
