Since two days ago, October 29th, I have been on Estrogen for 6 months. As many of you know, this has changed my life. My mind and body are starting to feel congruent with each other.

One of my favorite things about Persephone is our dedication to body acceptance and Health at Every Size. I personally have benefited a great deal from these discussions, and I know I’m not the only one. There are a number of wonderful articles I could have chosen, but this one seemed to sum them all up nicely. -Hillary
