I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO ACCEPT "BODY ACCEPTANCE"

Now don’t get me wrong, i am 100% for body positivity, but I firmly believe that if you are overweight or underweight you should never just accept it. Nowadays, people use body acceptance as an excuse to give up; to say “I’m perfect just the way i am and don’t need to change.” But let’s face it, most of us aren’t perfect and do need  to change.Now i’m not saying you can’t be 400 pounds or 90 pounds and not be beautiful, you can and are! Your weight is not what defines your beauty, but if you are going to allow yourself to be unhealthy and project that as good, or almost better, than being healthy and fit, then that is not okay. That is telling the younger generation to not care about health, to not try to be the best they can be. once again, i’m not saying to tell your kids they’re disgusting or gross or ugly because they aren’t but never allow them to think being under/overweight is where they want to be. That, to me, is a form of child abuse and is setting them up for a lifetime of illnesses and doctors visits; which just isn’t something i want to promote.
