To anyone who says that they are "glorifying obesity"
Your rolls are not “glorious”
Sweat trapped under rolls is not good.
Stretch marks are natural, but when they are bold purple, and painful and tearing, its because your skin was not meant to expand so much, so quickly.
Neither are chafed thighs, red and raw just because of walking around too much, without coverings. Maybe because it’s summer and you got a new bathing suit. Maybe a dress or skirt. Its uncomfortable for a reason.
A bad diet very often will give you bad acne, which means that when you sweat, it stings badly.
Your knees hurting because you have trouble carrying the extra weight on your body, which was not meant to be there, is also for a reason.
Take time to notice that none of this is created by a “fat phobic” society.
This is your body telling you to STOP.
Stop eating so much .
To lose weight , you don’t need a gym or expensive foods.
Just think about what you put into your body.
Don’t treat your body like a trash bin.
Unhealthy foods aren’t “bad”, its just that they are treats, which you don’t need every day.
Drink water regularly, count the soda as a treat, because it’s not free of calories.
Lastly, stop pushing this shitty mentality that its OKAY TO GIVE UP ON YOURSELF TO CHILDREN.
A decent percentage of users on here are children!

They have enough to deal with without fucking ADULTS telling them to inflict this pain on themselves.
Fernando Botero, a Colombian artist born in 1932, is my new favorite everything. I mean, look at this! How have I not seen these remarkable, happy, weird, marvelous, fat and glorious figures before?!
I want to live in this world where everyone is fat, sexy as hell, and totally chill. He’s got nudes and more enfattened master copies, as well as original figures. I highly recommend spending a little time on google images checking them all out!
(Also, many thanks for Maryan-morgandorffer for pointing out I originally spelled Colombian like the university with a U because I was clearly not paying attention. Sorry!)
I understand wanting to love the body you have now. There is no sense in hating yourself for the situation you are currently in. Love yourself. Find the beauty in your body as it is currently. But don’t give up on yourself. If you really love yourself, you’ll never stop bettering yourself. And that includes doing your best to make yourself as healthy as you can be. I understand some people can’t do certain things. I understand weight loss is hard. But do what you can do, even if it is small. Show yourself some love by keeping your body healthy. Eat as healthy as your situation allows. Drink plenty of water. Do whatever exercise you can, when you can. Don’t give up and fall into this rut of, “This is the best I’ll ever be.” Don’t let tumblr tell you that being inactive and eating poorly is okay. I understand limitations, but work within those limitations. Don’t give up on yourself. Never give up on yourself.
that's not necessarily always the case. even so-...
YES IT IS! fat is unhealthy and it isn't okay to be fat! It isn't okay to be unhealthy! you should never be okay with being unhealthy!
well, if we're gonna play that game then why are you judging people for their health? do you do the same to people with the flu, mental illnesses, people on transplant lists, or even asthma, or cancer, or people with mobility aids?
how dare you compare your fat lazy ass to actual, real unhealthy people!
....but you claimed all fat people are unhealthy.
you are! it isn't okay to glorify obesity!!! It is unhealthy! It isn’t okay to be unhealthy!!
