I’ve always been a fan of Gabi, but this made me love her even more.

When plus sized blogger Gabi Gregg posted photos of herself wearing a bikini, she received an overwhelmingly positive response. Below, Gregg chats with TODAY’S Tamron Hall about why she’s encouraging other full figured women to send in their own “fatkini” photos
What a great idea! I should totally send in a photo for this. Check out some more shots in the photo gallery below, and video of her interview this morning (at the end of this post).
“I’m not promoting obesity or an unhealthy lifestyle. I’m all for health,” she said. “I think people should be aware what they’re putting in their bodies and try to get more active. But the truth is, we have to live in and be happy with the bodies we have right now no matter where we’re at on our journey to health. And I don’t think your health should determine whether or not you’re allowed to wear certain types of clothing.
“What I wanted to accomplish with the gallery is that it’s not just me. For a lot of these women you could visibly see their flaws. It’s not just me wearing a bikini. You can be any size and be happy where you are. And that doesn’t mean you’re not practicing healthy habits.”
