Remember that it’s just my opinion, and that i acknowledge not being some sort of god, i admit i could be wrong, and i don’t mean to insult anyone saying this
I just read a post targeted towards fat girls talking about bad experiences caused by being fat, and um this made me think… like i know we should all accept ourselves as we are and all but, if you feel that bad being fat, you can lose weight. Don’t leave, just hear me out:
I’m not saying the way society says fat=ugly is fair, or should be encouraged, but you also don’t have to stay like this just because tumblr says “love your body”. If you feel uncomfortable looking the way you look, you should change. Losing weight is not a big deal, it’s not permanent, and it doesn’t have to cost anything. You wouldn’t be conforming to society or whatever, you would be doing this for yourself.
This is coming from someone who used to be chubby, so please don’t tell me “i don’t understand”, because i do. I used to feel really bad in my own body, and even after losing weight it took a while for me to be proud and happy with the way i look, but losing weight definitely helped. Detail: no one ever insulted me for being chubby. I know people saw me as chubby, i’ve had a few remarks but none of them meant to be insulting. I didn’t feel uncomfortable because of society or whatever, i didn’t lose weight to “””fit in”””, i lost weight so i could look at myself and tell myself i’m pretty. This being said, if you’re chubby and you look at yourself and you find yourself pretty, that’s fantastic! That’s great, really! I’m happy for you. But i don’t think everyone can accept themselves like this.
