You can be fat and healthy, actually.
But the most important part is: Not your body? Not your business. Shame doesn’t help anyone. Stigma doesn’t help anyone. Vague future health threats don’t help anyone.
But if the only places that you hear that fat is always unhealthy are from mass media, which helps the diet industry make $40 BILLION (or more) profit per year, or from the medical community which is more interested in making money off prescribing pills and bariatric surgery, you might want to consider that you’ve been fooled. Also keep in mind that the government and medical community immediately throws out/stops funding any studies that prove that fat is not unhealthy.
This is not the place to be asking such questions. This blog is not about health. This blog is about self esteem. This blog promotes POSITIVE self-esteem regardless of weight, health, or any other physical factors. We’re not here to argue about it.
The best part about that question was that the person who answered said: You may feel fine, and your doctor may tell you you’re fine, and medical tests may say you’re fine BUT YOU’RE NOT.

I love this except for the “queer umbrella” part….why can’t we all be under the same umbrella, including straight people? We should all be equal.
Maybe it’s because I don’t have any close friends out here yet, and so my spare time is spent thinking? Fuck I don’t know. I’m really extremely happy with everything in my life. I don’t get it.
I’ve been having weird panicky feelings lately. Paranoia too. About really stupid shit. Did I say or do anything wrong the other night when I had a couple drinks? Did I forget to go into work last night? Did work really not cancel me, but I no call/no showed? Is my husband pissed off that I asked him to take out the trash? Do I cook enough good food at home for my husband? Does my family hate me for moving away? Does my husband really think I’m hot? Would he cheat on me? Did I remember to pay all my bills? Did I remember to chart everything at work?
It feels like the anxiety that I had while in nursing school is coming back, but without the full blown panic attacks. Fuck. I hate it. Some days I feel like my head is spinning even when nothing has happened. Other days, I’m fine.
I really don’t want this back. I thought before it was because of all the stress from school. No clue what it could be from now. I really don’t think I’m that stressed.
The working poor haven’t abdicated responsibility for their lives. They’re drowning in it.
