"No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better."

I was first drawn to it while playing in my grandmother’s dresser drawers. I’ve always loved anything with hooks and lace and this had both. Firm mesh side panels, hook and eye closure, trimmed with lace. Even though I had no idea how to wear it, I instinctively wrapped the snug garment around my small, plump belly. Parading around my grandma’s room, I paired my new piece with her 25th wedding anniversary tiara.

It wasn’t until I went home in my new outfit, to my mother, that I learned what I was wearing was meant for fat girls and old ladies to hide their bellies. I didn’t hate the idea of it. In fact, it made me love it even more. My mother gave me no resistance when I asked if I could wear it to school the next day. 

And so there I was, 9 years old, in the 4th grade, wearing my girdle underneath a pair of pants that were just a liiittle too difficult to button pre-shapewear. I felt soooooo fine ! No one could have possibly known that these pants didn’t fit me yesterday. I felt powerful, thin, and I listened to my Aaliyah tape at recess and dreamt of being just like her when I grew up. I felt like THIS WAS MY TICKET. Somehow, concealing my tummy was my ticket to being a successful recording artist— nevermind the fact that I can’t carry a tune to save my life.

Needless to say, I liked this feeling. So when my grandma found out I’d worn it to school and said that it wasn’t appropriate for me to wear, I was devastated. She did, however, offer me a different option— tummy tuck panties. They basically did the same thing, but without the pretty hooks and lace. I have no idea how this was more appropriate than the other, but I didn’t question it. I just wore my power panties and listened to my Aaliyah tape.

My heart is still capable, 17 years later, of feeling that glimmer of hope. The kind that made me wrap my arms around my chest as I looked at myself in the mirror and thought about Brandon asking me to be his girl, all the friends I’d have in high school, my first world-tour !

Brandon never asked me to be his girlfriend. Jeremy, the weird boy in class, who I found oddly charming, did.
In high school, I wasn’t friends with Cheylanne Beaver or whoever that other popular girl was. I was friends with Rachel and Jessica and Lauren, queer kids who smoked pot and listened to Ani DiFranco with me.
I haven’t gone on tour. I’ve made art; written stories and taken photos that have resonated with people around the world who now have the courage to love their fat bodies.

Fitting into those pants meant the world to me when I was 9. My story isn’t rare. And it doesn’t end when one fat girl grows out of her girdle. There is a lot of work that has to done, not just for the kids in Spanx or on diets, but for those who make kids feel like they’re incapable of being Aaliyah because they don’t quite fit into the pants they did yesterday.

"push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise. 2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable. 3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it. 4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else. 5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything. 6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice. 7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small. 8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full. 9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle. 10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck. 11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog. 12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through. 14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything. 15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends. 16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you."
