I’m probably behind the ball by a lot on this but in case you haven’t seen it and still happen to be checking this lagging blog beastie for good news tidbits: check out Holley Mangold and her response to Conan’s rather crude and rude comments about this amazing weightlifter.
This woman is confident, amazing, strong, fat and completely fabulous. One of her quotes that I loved:
“My parents just always told me I could be whatever I wanted to be,” she says, “and, silly me, I believed them.”
Swoon! So read up if you need an uplifting moment for body positivity this week as the Olympics get under way!
