I know. It’s a bold title, but of course its point was achieved and here you are, now diving into this discussion with me. Thanks for coming by. If you clicked on this post, chances are your child’s image of his or her body is something that you wonder about; perhaps even worry about. Of […]
We see it everywhere. “Drop three dress sizes with this new program!” “Lose ten pounds in two weeks with this easy workout!” “Flatten your abs!” “Lift your booty!” The list goes on. Magazines, advertisements, and the media in general are pushing us to think solely about image when thinking about health and fitness. Exercise is […]
Currently there is a great deal of discussion surrounding whether or not the health of presidential candidates should be taken into consideration. Some feel that the state of a potential leader’s health is information that the public can and should examine and take into consideration when voting. The major argument for this is, of course, […]
Fat can come from a lot of different things in life, but would you ever blame the government for your weight? A mother does. Liz Thomson, a mother of an 11-year-old girl, said she wanted more government support for those who have obese children. Many disagreed with Thomson’s opinions when she went on British TV program, […]
Would you ever give up on your dream job because of your weight? I’m sure that’s not how the plan would go, but what if that’s what just happens? That’s what Rachel Fox did. She thought she was too fat to be a scientist, and quit her job because of it. Could you imagine?! I […]
“She’s big. You know, a little overweight. But not like, obese.” So she’s fat? “No!” — Why are we so afraid to use the word fat? The word has such a negative connotation, but there’s nothing wrong with it. We all have fat, in case you’ve forgotten. We use words like, big, overweight, wide […]
I met a girl who was always talking about her weight. She was obsessed with the number on that scale and talked about her daily exercise routine and food intake fairly often. One day, I asked why she wanted to lose weight so badly. She said she wanted to “look hot.” I didn’t know what to say back […]
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called chubby, big or fat. My family members would tell me that as a baby, my arms and legs were comparable to lotus roots. They were big and round. In my family, I was pretty much one of the chubbiest girls. I had always been that […]
“Hi! How are you? It’s been too long. You look like you’ve lost weight.” Stop. Right. There. Has anyone ever told you that it looks like you’ve lost weight? I understand there’s small talk about the weather, you ask people about their family or work, but people need to stop telling others that it looks like […]
“I’d die if I got fat.” “All my clothes make me look fat.” Stop. Just stop. Do you realize saying statements like these is fat-shaming yourself? Yes, I’m guilting of doing this as well. But recently, I’ve noticed a lot of people fat-shaming themselves, and I can’t help but wonder why. It makes me cringe […]
Total shocker: the model pumps iron and eats clean.
See you in hell, Hollywood.
A really nice way for us to find out just how much invasion of privacy people will endure to make world a better place.
Thanks for nailing another one Louis.
The people who determine the size of the hot new caped rompers should be held accountable too.
