Everyone’s just making obesity seem like it’s less of a problem than it really is.
‘Oh, yeah.. no.. love your body, it’s fine. Nothing wrong with it.’
Until you die of clogged arteries or what-have-you. I’m probably going to lose followers because many people might take this the wrong way.. I’m NOT saying to lose weight because it’ll make you more attractive. I’m saying lose weight because it’ll make you healthier, it’ll have an impact - believe it or not - on your friends and family too to start eating better when they see you’re eating healthier. Diabetes, clogged arteries, heart disease, osteoarthritis, liver disease, infertility… Save your self the trouble later. Eat like you give a damn now.
Don’t wish you lost the weight, actually lose it. Don’t just tell yourself that you’re happy with how you look. That’s great and all, you should be comfortable with yourself.. but I think, as corny as it sounds, a healthier you is a happier you.
I agree but as a fat person most fat people who go to lose weight don’t think of the external benfits at first. We think of it as getting thinner and being prettier. When you are made fun of for being overweight, the stuff that you can’t see you tend not to think about it. You just want to fix what you can see.
I have lost a ton of weight and my first motivation wasn’t for me to be healthier it was because I thought of my self to be fat and ugly and way to fix that would be to get skinny. I have then changed the way I think but that just the way it is.
No kids at school teased me because my blood perssure was high and no guy did find me attractive because my arties were clogged. You can see thse and you aren’t teased about them. You are tease if you are fat and because you an see your fatty deposits de-clogging yourself but you can see your stomach getting smaller.
Our generation’s main focus is always on external attributes. We get older and we see that fixing how the internal part of you is working will affect how you look on the outside.
In order to try and fix your your going have to accept they way you look first. Then you will be able to face yourself realically and see what needs fixing, what you need to leave alone and what you are capable of doing. Once you love it you will take care of it. So getting over weight people to love their bodies id good but just don’t stop there.
