  1. fat talk?

    we are in a society with a major health crisis. our children will face shorter life spans than we will because they are being raised on unhealthy over processed food and lifestyles of inactivity. alcohol and drug addiction will affect less lives negatively than unhealthy food choices and laziness. Yes, you are beautiful but put down the candybar and cheese burger and you might just live a little longer to enjoy what you’ve got

  2. shannon,

    i think there are a lot of things in your statement that are worth exploring more.

    one, you are assuming that the only people who fat talk are actually overweight. have you ever met a woman who is a normal, healthy weight but still puts down her body? im sure you have. did you know that most girls go on their first diet when they are just 8 years old? or that half of teenagers would rather be hit by a truck than be fat?

    fat talk has nothing to do with your size. you can fat talk and be overweight, a healthy weight, or underweight. even if you are overweight, why should you beat yourself up and tell yourself that you are worthless? you ARENT worthless because you are overweight or do not look like airbrushed models in a magazine. that doesnt meant that you should try to improve your health, but it also doesn’t mean that you should berate yourself.

    i hope you think about these concepts and reconsider your comment.

    ps – i know a lot of women who are active and eat healthy and would be considered by their doctors to be a little overweight. its just the way their bodies are made.
