What if I’m happy the way I am?
What if the person you see, big belly, wavy arms, plus size with what looks like little intention of changing, is happy the way she is?
Does every fat person have to be on a diet?
Do we all have to be miserable and wish we looked like the skinny models on tv?
Do we all have to sit and absorb the same stories we’ve heard our whole lives?
“Mary lost five pounds a week drinking shakes.”
“A friend of mine just ate veggies her whole life and she’s healthier than anyone I know.”
“Stop eating sugar and you’ll lose it all.”
What if we’re happy chubby?
Is that possible?
Is it possible for us fatty’s to get to a place where we can look in the mirror and say, “hey, I like you.”
If we were left alone.
If the media, society, and do gooders would stop badgering us to conform to the idea that everyone must look the same.
I don’t want to look like everyone else.
Sure, I want to be healthy, but I can be healthy and be chubby at the same time.
Yup, it’s possible.
You can be skinny and be unhealthy.
Not every fat person has high chlorestoral, blood pressure, diabetes, or heart problems.
Some of us lead healthy, active lifestyles.
And we’re okay with what we look like.
And if we aren’t okay then we’ll do something about it.. we’ll change our eating habits, exercise more, see results.
But we don’t need society, friends, and family shoving the ideas of what a perfect body looks like down our throats.
We get it.
We look in the mirror and we live it every day.
So we either embrace who we are or we struggle with who we are.
