Your body is fucking PERFECT. You are so incredibly beautiful. Some of you know this, some of you are learning, and some of you still aren’t ready to believe.
I SWEAR TO YOU, you are amazing, and you body is just as glorious.
Those that seek to shame you, are often misguided, ill informed, ignorant, and insecure.
YOUR opinion of you is the ONLY opinion that matters.
You are wonderful just the way you are.
*Massive hugs all around*
I love it when I check on an old post and people are reblogging it with health troll comments.
I don’t understand how it’s so hard for so many people to grasp:
HEALTH LOOKS DIFFERENT ON EVERY BODY. YOU CAN BE FAT AND HEALTHY, YOU CAN BE SKINNY AND HEALTHY, ETC.
Even if someone is sick, living an unhealthy lifestyle, etc, what makes you think that you should publicly scorn them about it? What makes you think they shouldn’t be living in the present moment and feeling happy? Why would you want to take that away? What about their body and their confidence and/or joy make you so uncomfortable?
“I am going to assume that you are unhealthy because of your body shape. LOL, HAVE FUN DYING OF A HEART ATTACK!”
What the hell is that?
END BODY SHAMING. END BODY POLICING.
My father has been a ‘healthy’ weight most of his life.
He had a heart attack at 43 years old.
My mother has been an ‘unhealthy’ weight most of her life.
She has never had any major health issues, has sprung back from several broken bones with no serious complications, and continues a strenuous and demanding career.
Fuck body shaming.
A few years back, a good friend of mine was in the 400lb range, and I weighed about 145lb, at 5’11ish. She now weighs less than I do, but that’s not relevant to my point.
At the point when our weights were thus, guess which of us had the following:
- High cholesterol
- Arthritis & chronic back and leg pain
- Random attacks of syncope (fainting)
- Yearly cases of pneumonia
- (amongst other things I am currently too lazy to list)
If you guessed me, you win a cookie!
Weight is absolutely not an obvious determining factor of health.
