Caroline Rothstein – “I am not fat”


“This is a poem about how I am not fat.”

Today, in honour of Eating Disorder Awareness Week, we wanted to share some powerful spoken word with you. Caroline Rothstein posted this video called “Fat”. This is a beautifully spoken and truly powerful piece that discusses the raw emotion and of someone in the intense throes of an eating disorder.

“I used to daydream about eating dinner without wanting to kill myself.”

Eating disorders aren’t pretty.

“I used to daydream about freedom.”

Eating disorders aren’t pretty.

Check out the full video:

Caroline is nine years recovered from a decade long eating disorder. She is a New York City-based writer, performer, and advocate. She tours her spoken word poetry nationally and has a “Body Empowerment” youtube series.  Check out her website and find her on social media today!  FacebookTwitterYoutube & Instagram!
