Review for NATIONAL ASSOCIATION TO ADVANCE FAT ACCEPTANCE INC, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NAAFA changed my life forever. I heard about NAAFA when I was 18 years old. The doctor who examined me for college admission told me that because I was fat no one would ever love me, or want me. I would never be a success. Imagine saying that to an 18 year old. I felt miserable about myself. I went on yet another diet, to lose 30 lbs and eventually regain 60. NAAFA showed me that I could be a successful, loving woman no matter what I weighed. I met people at their conventions who lived their convictions, who were fat and happy. Without NAAFA, I couldn't have had the love and success in my life that I learned I deserved. I will be forever grateful for their example and guidance.
