Marky...it's all over FB and Twitter...plug in...
When you purposely make other people feel bad for what they look you're moronic, if not worse. And when people get all offended when someone shows care for their health, being too skinny or too fat, and call it body shaming, you need a reality check.
Last year, around this day, I used to be obese. I was at risk at having a heart attack because of the fat I had in my body, standing for too long was painful, I was exhausted way quicker than normal. I was in a really bad shape - so when my mother, who's a nurse, came talk to me about the need to lose weight, I saw it for what it was: worry about my safe-being.
Of course, when you want to show you care, try not to be an asshole about it. That might help avoid misunderstandings.
My mum is awesome :D
Yeah, that's true.
Great Post & Congratulations!
Thank you :)
But have you heard about all the body shaming incidents on FB and Twitter? On perfect bodies...
I've seen enough at Tumblr.
I get called fat and harassed almost daily
To put it bluntly:
You weren't given that. You can work on your body. It's possible, believe it or not.
not sure what you mean, but if you ask me the worst type of body hate is allowing yourself to get fat or not to warn someone that obesity can kill. obesity is the number one killer (aside from abortion), in North america. but to make fun of someone because of their weight is wrong. to tell them they need to smarten up or they might die at 40 is not bad, in fact if you cared for someone you would tell them that obesity is bad. if not for looks do it for your health and future.
There are incidences on social media where they attack people and body shame them...
Not everyone can have a perfect body and even those get attacked... Not everyone wants to be or can be at their ideal weight, and that is no reason to make fun of people.
yes I agree making fun of people is wrong. and i know everyone has a different body type, but it is obvious when someone is purer and simply obese. im not taking about those with 20% fat and exercise, im talking about those who are 30+ percent fat and don;t exercise, its not healthy, its very bad for you.
I agree...what's not to agree? But still, have some empathy with complex lives where going to the gym isn't always possible...
don't need a gym to exercise, all you need is motivation and your body weight, and for cardio, go for an actual run, don;t need a treadmill
Good response, but what if someone is in their 60s and has had multiple surgeries? Or what if someone hates running? Or cycling?
While I agree a person can keep an eye on their dietary requirements...a brisk walk at night isn't gonna take the pounds off...
So, really, we are down to just mainly watching one's diet...unless you are under 30 and in perfect health...
well walking is just as good, you don;t need to run, their is almost always a physical activity that suits ones needs, does not have to be intensive to be beneficial.
hating something is no excuse, i absolutely HATE running, i do it anyways. because i know i need it, and its good for me.
if you are fit and in shape yes walking won;t do much, but for a sedentary person, walking would be very beneficial and would help loose weight (if overweight), and eating healthy is important too.
diet and exercise are imo equally important, and one does not need to be in perfect health to exercise, they just need to watch what they are doing and at what intensity.
It is ridiculous.
Our media culture is so distorted and has young people too engaged on outer beauty. Expectations are unrealistic and at the core of everything true beauty still comes from within.
This shaming stuff on social media is just another form of bullying!
Life is not Disneyland, you have to put up with things a lot worse than someone calling you fat
