So, I was on Pinterest earlier when I found a picture of a 'fat chick'. I read the caption and wanted to know why someone would post this...I mean surely they weren't happy about this. (She was like, a 300 pound girl!)
Well, I went to the blog it was connected to, Fat From the Side. I started looking around and realized it was an appreciation blog for all these girls who are really fat. Cool - if you wanna appreciate your body...but there's NO way they are appreciating a healthy body. Personally, I think this type of thing is just sending the wrong message to girls. NOT that the people saying people should be stick thin are right either, but I think this is out of control.
I am still not where I want to be, and I won't be for a while, but at least I know how to make myself healthy. Sure, I want to be thin, but if my body decides it only wants to be as small as a 6 and I am living a healthy lifestyle, I will be okay. At least I'm not shoving my face with cupcakes and ice cream 10 times a day. I've seen both sides of this whole weight ordeal. I know what its like to be fat, unhealthy, and ashamed, I know it all. I know now, what its like to turn down cake after dinner, and how it feels to fit into those really cute pants I've always wanted. I know I'm not an expert, but geez - I can't be the only person who thinks its absolutely ridiculous to tell girls that being a damn hot air balloon is okay!
The only reason I even thought about posting this was because a girl left a rude comment on my pin after I repinned it with the caption "this blog is disturbing". I didn't like what she had to say, and I deleted it...whoops - thought about it afterwards. :P I did delete the pin, because I kind of felt bad afterwards, but this is my redemption.
STOP EATING SHIT. Go to the gym. Appreciate your body, yes...but also realize your body is a temple. God did NOT give you something so precious to just ruin. Don't chop 20 years off of your life because you decided you wanted to have 3 more hotdogs and 4 servings of fries.
I almost feel bad about posting this, because I read the captions and a lot of the girls on there have gone through so much with hating their body and all...and 'this is their chance to admire themselves and appreciate themselves'...but I just can't help saying that they shouldn't be admiring that. They should treat themselves right.
