I don’t understand why people want to be fat. Aesthetics aside (I so wanna steal that dress), I just don’t get it. You’re supposed to care for your body so why damage it like that? (and I’m not talking about the people with eating disorders)
Can’t people respect that that is who she wants to be?
No, you don’t get respect for destroying your body, sorry. You aren’t just handed respect, especially when you’re being counter-productive, a bad influence, and intentionally unhealthy. That does not deserve respect. Respect is earned, not given.
But that’s none of your fucking business
Ahhh ok I’m sooooo sorry I care about the human races well being and health as a whole. I guess I shouldn’t care about anything about anyone. Who cares about rape victims, who cares about murder victims, who cares about drug addicts — it’s not happening to me. That’s your mindset. “Have no care”. Selfish, useless, and disgusting.
Since we have public (taxpayer funded) health care here, and countless dollars are wasted every single year on preventable diseases related to obesity, it actually can be other people’s business.
But if she’s happy then why do you feel the need to judge her??? People who are larger like me can still be healthy!!! I have amazing bp, all of my blood tests are stellar, and I feel wonderful. Maybe she’s the same way! Some people don’t feel comfortable at a smaller size and who the fuck are you to judge her for that? Beauty and health can be found in more than one size and it’s people who comment negatively that help contribute to negative thoughts that can lead to destructive behavior.
A. She’s wasting taxpayers money. B. I care about the human race and their health. C. I care about children and want them to have positive influence about healthy lifestyles, not literal encouragement to be obese. Also it’s wrong to say she’s healthy, she’s not, she’s ballooning up because if you look at her blog, she specifically stuffs herself to get more fat. That’s not healthy and excess fat in itself will in the near future, create health problems. This also isn’t about beauty. What SHE is doing is negative and destructive behavior.
I didn’t say she was healthy in a concrete term. I don’t know how healthy she is and I don’t look at her blog. I understand where you’re coming from but I also feel that setting an example for the future youth also means not demeaning someone just because of size. Obviously you do know more about this than I do but from what I experienced at a younger age was that negative words do more to a person’s psyche and sense of self worth than many other forms of communication, I’m slimming down now and I could never see myself getting back to where I was but I still feel like I need to try and speak positively of someone until I know for a fact that they are unhealthy and are harming themselves but I don’t feel like I can do that because I am not a doctor. I’m a teacher and I see kids bullied all of the time which manifests itself into self destruction. I guess after reading this and thinking about it I may have been more upset at this because of how things are phrased. I don’t mean to offend but to offer my opinion.
There’s nothing wrong with being larger AND healthy, however this worries me because medically speaking gaining and storing fat in the midsection/tummy has a higher association with cardiovascular complications. It would behoove anyone trying to gain or lose weight to consult a doctor or health care professional to ensure they are both mentally and physically on the right track.
