Overweight is neither healthy nor self-acceptance







Loving yourself and your body is not an excuse to ignore your health, guys.

It's hard for some people both to hear the truth and spell it out because it is automatically called 'fat shaming' and 'body issues' and certainly not politically correct.

We all -a few morbid exceptions aside- love our body, that's why we keep feeding it in the first place. But many times we confuse our emotional needs with the need for food and we stuff ourselves. And then it shows.

Being obese or overweight, slightly or morbidly, is not healthy just as it's not healthy being too skinny.  Being obese does not mean you love your body the way it is, it just means you need to do something about it. Being skinny does not mean you are disciplined and pretty, it means you've taken things to the other extreme .

Loving your body means choosing long term health over immediate gratification.

And that is damn hard, otherwise everybody would do it.

But look at the grace and elegance and healthy glow of a really fit body and you'll agree that it's so worth it

Let's do it!
Love and hugs
