Can we stop acting like eating healthy is only for people who wanna lose weight?

I’m sick of going for the healthy option and people saying “get something good! You’re already skinny” or when suggesting a healthy recipe to others and they say “I’m not looking to lose weight”

EATING HEALTHY IS NOT JUST ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS.

Eating healthy is literally so your body can be healthy. So you can feel better. So you can perform better. So you can take care of and nourish your body properly. I’m not eating spinach because I wanna lose weight I’m eating spinach because I want to live longer and feel better.

I’m not even going to address anon directly, because seriously, fuck that guy. 

For the rest of you who may be wondering how I POSSIBLY manage living as a fat person, let me explain how I do it: 

I do it by making time for fun things as often as possible. Like riding carousels while morbidly obese. I  have the gall to do this in front of children. 

I do it by making sure my skin is always moisturized and cleansed. I know it’s shocking, but my glowing, fat face feels great after a seaweed-based exfoliant mask. 

I do it by finding time for my interests and hobbies. I’m an amateur mycologist. You may think it’s frightening for a fat forager to find fungi, but I think it’s fantastic.    

I do it by surrounding myself with wholesome, non-judgmental people. A fat person with friends and family?!? It’s more likely than you think. 

I do it by wearing bright colors and taking any opportunity for a photo shoot. Surprisingly, my fatness hasn’t broken a camera yet. 

I do it by singing loudly and flamboyantly. Much as you’ve been told fat people spend 99% of our time gasping for air, I actually have pretty solid breath control. 

I do it by pursuing my education. Don’t worry, they let me skip the part of the bar exam that asks for your BMI.

I do it by having an adorable, supportive partner. We even make out with the lights ON most of the time! 

I do it by creating safe spaces in my home. I love decorating for holidays and dinner parties. The tinsel really compliments my back rolls! 

I do it by adopting fluffy animal friends. Mr. Fluff here may always have a look of existential dread on his face, but he’s not once had a problem with my weight. 

I do it by spending time in nature. Trees and green spaces are very healing! Yes, even for a fatty like me. 

I do it by making this face at people who tell me that since I’m fat I can’t have all the things I already have. I have the audacity to believe that I will one day accomplish all the important goals I have set out for myself!

I’m a fat person and I have value. 
I’m a fat person and I can realize my dreams. 
I’m a fat person and I have a happy, fulfilling life. 

That’s not going to change no matter how many anons send me hateful messages. 

To all my fat family out there, you deserve a support network of caring people who don’t care about your weight. You deserve to achieve your goals. You deserve respect. You deserve happiness. 

Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

The Fat Census will be available on November 7th, 2017 for all fat bodied people. This survey is created to radicalize research around fat bodies and to create more tangible data to name the violence and experiences we have as fat people. We will be releasing the results of the census in an executive summary along with demands for resources for fat bodies in January 2018.

After a bought of weight gain, my doctor mentioned to me that it’s actually normal to gain some weight after your teenage years. After all, we are not done growing/developing until about 25 or so.

Yet, there is so much shame and stigma surrounding it. People love to tease those who “got fat” after high school as if it were some sort of character flaw rather than normal biology. It’s sick.

So, for my followers who are twenty-somethings: it’s okay if you’ve grown a little bit (or even a lot) since your teenage years. There is nothing wrong with your body, and everything wrong with society.
