I don't want any of this to come off rude, but I'm just curious, you obviously love your body which is awesome, but you've said that you were 220+ pounds. You're gorgeous but do you plan to try to lose weight, or try to be healthier? Again I'm not meaning any of this in a rude way, and I know it's none of my business whether you are or aren't, but I'm just curious. I love your page by the way!

I almost deleted this message but I think it’s important.

You said you love my blog, so I’m assuming that you’ve probably read some of my posts about eating disorders. You may or may not be aware of this: I am an eating disorder survivor. I have spent the last few years recovering from a seemingly endlessly changing disorder that sucked the pleasure out of my life for nine years. That’s nine years of a much thinner me looking in the mirror and hating myself for eating just enough to survive. That’s nine years of obsessive exercise and diuretic abuse. That’s nine years of weighing myself every morning and counting every calorie ingested and burned. So when you ask if I am ever going to “try be healthier,” you are assuming that I am the way that I am due to some lack of effort on my part. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Beating my ED and learning to love myself was and is a fucking battle.

As for the other part of that question where you ask if I will ever try to lose any weight, let me just answer that one with a straight up no. I will never try to lose weight, ever again. Doesn’t mean I’ll never change anything about my habits if I need to, but that’s not the same thing as trying to “lose weight.” That’s an important distinction. I’m not going to try to alter myself if I’m comfortable with who I am just to fit into what the rest of the world considers to be the ideal. And neither should you.

I know you meant well with this message (since you framed your question in so very many nice compliments) and I hope you know I truly mean well with this response. What I’m trying to show you is that there is more than one way to be happy, and that you should never assume you know someone’s happiness or well-being better than they do.

Dieting and Weight Talk Are Bad for All Adolescents, Says American Academy of Pediatrics
On Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics published new recommendations for “Preventing Obesity and Eating Disorders in Adolescents.” The recommend ...

This is why I’m resistant to the idea of letting thin people have easy access into the fat positive community.  This right here is one of those “no freaking duh” studies, that are important to convince thin people that shaming and diet talk isn’t a good idea.  For people who aren’t or have never been fat, having diet talk with kids is often considered no big deal.  “It’s just trying to help them reach the weight they want, they want to be thin, they must be unhealthy” are the common phrases and with the “allies” who are anything but, it usually goes like “letting your kid be fat is child abuse.”

Which demonstrates a huge disconnect between fat and thin people, thin people see weight loss talk of any kind as benign or even helpful, whereas fat people don’t.  All too often they don’t understand about fat blaming in doctors, clothing stores or anything else.  When you peel back a layer or two, most people who don’t know what it’s like to be fat too often fall back on the “it’s for your own good, you’re not trying hard enough argument” and they’re unwilling to listen until these kinds of studies are created.  For people who want to be allies in the fat positive community, listen to us, don’t just assume you know better than we do.  Please.

          It’s an attempt at an objective statement, but accusation seeps into her tone like ink on paper, and once the mark is made it doesn’t fade from her voice easily. Her arms are crossed over her chest, and her pursed lips say IRRITATION, but in her mind it mingles with WORRY. She knows it’s not about this at all; he’s been acting so OFF lately — missing one arrangement doesn’t even scratch the surface

                                                            But it’s a place to start. 

         “Please don’t tell me you were hanging out with those losers instead AGAIN. This is seriously getting ridiculous.”

You're half right about the health thing. Fish and eggs (which we should NOT eat, of course, because it's heinously immoral and also bad for the planet) can be healthy in moderation, but other than that, all other animal products are enormously terrible for your health and even if someoen didn't care at all about morality or the environment, they should avoid red meat, poultry, and dairy because those foods are some of the worst things you can do to your body.

My thing is that i dont particularly care how “unhealthy” food is. I mean if i could live off a steady diet of ice cream and cookies Id fuckin do it. How “healthy/unhealthy” food is isnt my business. But even I, Master of the Deep Fried Potato Diet, would never willingly eat dairy that shit is so gross why would anyone eat that.

I just realized that I was born at the same day and I have the same age as Aly Raisman and suddenly I feel useless

don’t feel useless bab, aly raisman is probably in pain 24/7 and i doubt she has time to have fun on tumblr and i’m sure she’s on a ridiculously strict diet and never has free time and has to leave her family to go train in some remote facility for months out of the year. i mean, different strokes for different folks, yknow?

Hey! I'm 5'1 and weighed 89 pounds. If I start taking 2 diet pills, 2 cups of green tea and 2 cups of oolong tea everyday during a week, you think I can lose 9 lbs in that short time?

I never really took any diet pills or laxatives nor do I recommend them but I think that’ll work

NEWS FLASH

Guys, Demi Lovato STILL has an eating disorder AND is a huge bully.

A lot of people in the ED community look up to her as a role model but she still has the eating disorder, it’s just being portrayed in a different way. Any therapist will tell you. She excessively works out. 3-4 workouts a day is not healthy especially because of how hard she goes (seen via snapchat) and never ever shows her diet. That’s not recovery and that’s not healthy. Google excessive excersise if you don’t believe me.

Now on to the bullying. Demi is always looking for the next fight. She trashes people and goes after them for no one reason ALL ON THE INTERNET for her fan base to see.

She’s just an angry anorexic. PLEASE do some research before you come for me. Im writing this because I used to look up to her and then realized how fucked up her behavior is.

anonymous asked:

Have you lost weight ? Where'd that curve come from, gurl? Daaaaaamn ;p

Heh thank you anon,, I haven’t weighed myself in years, but I’ve actually gained weight, I’m now 9 stone 12 lbs (138lbs)

And I’m not sure where the curve came from, I only noticed it myself a few months ago in all honesty.

Also I’m not bothered by my weight, never dieted never plan too…But I would like to loose this extra 12lbs and be a nice 9 stone, but oh well…Some day that’ll happen, I mean I’ve started walking for over an hour a week, which honestly doesn’t sound like a lot at all, but for someone who doesn’t do recreational walks, like at all cause she’s terrified of the outside, that’s pretty good for me.

Revelation: 

Whenever I tried losing weight or I wanted to look better I cleaned up my diet, I never ate anything that I craved, I worked out even when I didn’t want to. I was always tired, irritable, run down, etc. Guess who always ended up failing and bingeing? This girl. 

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been eating and working out intuitively. Most days I have a smoothie bowl for breakfast, other days I crave eggs, meat and a bagel. Sometimes I crave yoga, sometimes I don’t. Maybe one day I want to walk instead of run, maybe even hike or trail run. I don’t know. It changes every single day. Do I want to go to a yoga class today? No, I don’t want to leave my apartment. Do I still want to practice some yin? Yes, so before I go to bed I’m going to roll out my mat and practice for however long my body craves. 

Because of this, I feel better, my skin is clearing up, I have more energy. I am able to run faster than before, I have enough energy to go to yoga straight after work because I ate enough of whatever my body craved for lunch. I am able to focus better, listen with more intent, and I don’t think I’ve ever slept this well. I could eat like shit all day, but because my body was craving it I have more energy than I did when I was eating 100% clean. 

Notice how I’m saying that my body is craving, not my mind. I take a few minutes to sit and take a couple of breaths to focus on where the craving is coming from. Am I craving my trigger foods because that’s want I want or is it because I’m hungry and I need to eat something in general? It’s always the latter and I always go with the latter. 

I’ve felt restless the entire weekend, but I know that just a simple walk after dinner and some light yoga before bed will make me feel much better and I don’t need to run 3 miles. I’m sure tomorrow or Wednesday I’ll crave a heavier cardio workout, but until then I know a simple walk and yoga is best for my mind today (physically and mentally tired from the weekend). 

Take a moment, check it, focus on where your thoughts are coming from (body or mind) and be prepared to live a beautiful life without guilt and restrictions.
