I feel ridiculously sexy when I look at my belly!
i went to a brand new doctor for a sore throat during the summer. he walks in, looks at my ankles and tells me they are swollen and that i need to be tested for PCOS and Diabetes. i am 250 lbs, but my BMI is lower every time i go. he gives me magic mouthwash for the white puss bubbles on my tonsils, and i get the blood work done. i don’t have PCOS, diabetes, or high cholesterol. i am perfectly normal and healthy and i told his boss that stereotyping me for those illnesses just because i look fat was just plain wrong.
Yeah I think we’ve all had an experience where our doctor wanted to treat “weight problems” when the issue was something entirely different.
I have to get a new doctor soon and I’m not really looking forward to it, because the one I have now has actually always focused on my test results instead of my body size as a diagnosis.
Even though I am a smaller fat, I absolutely hate my back rolls. SO I’m submitting this photo, as a challenge to myself to accept and love my body.
I just wanted to add that my back rolls have also been my greatest self love struggle <3
hey you fat babes
I know it can be super empowering to some of us to take photos of us eating, but can we try to remember to tag pictures of food?
Let’s be considerate of our babes with ED navigating the ‘fat’ tags, kay?
Okay here’s the thing
1. Having a fat body doesn’t necessarily mean you are unhealthy/have unhealthy habits, but even if you did, you still deserve respect.
2. Promoting ‘obesity’ is about promoting respect for fat bodies, not thealleged health habits of those bodies.
3. Fat isn’t inherently unhealthy, it’s possible to be fat and metabolically healthy, health is personal and multi-faceted and health is YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
4. Placing emphasis on health as a deciding factor of who is worthy of respect is ableist and disgusting. Should people with chronic illness hate their body because they are unhealthy? Is it acceptable to disrespect these people? (The answers to both of those questions is No). Even if you are unhealthy because of your own actions, that’s your business and you’re still a person and you still deserve respect.
5. People can still love their body and want to lose weight. Many people are saying “fuck it, I love my fat” and STILL actively pursuing weight loss. Loving your body doesn’t have anything to do with diet/exercise habits. There are plenty of fat people who exercise because they want to be healthy, but healthy is not synonymous with thin. You can work out and eat well and be fat. You can eat like shit and not exercise and be thin. If you want to love your body, then try to love it. If you care about people suspecting you of being unhealthy, I don’t know what to tell you.
If someone has a problem with my body, that is THEIR problem, not mine.
