#fatacceptance

MOST RECENT

We can’t have body positivity for some bodies without having body positivity for ALL bodies. Accepting ALL bodies is fundamental to body positivity, and that means fat bodies too. We live in a culture where fatphobia runs rampant and, in my mind, that means that we still have a lot of work to do in the body positivity movement. 🗣🗣🗣
BTW, body positivity does not mean that you have to like your body. It’s about acceptance, compassion, and respect NOT about liking. For more on that, check out my FB live this Wednesday at 12pm EST where I’ll be answering“Can I be body positive if I want to change my body?” 🗣🗣🗣Quote by @sonyareneetaylor who always has sooooo much wisdom to share 🙏🏻

There is nothing inherently good about being thin, and nothing inherently bad about being fat - but our culture likes to convince us otherwise.
.
We are sold the lie that weight loss will bring us health, but no study can prove this.
.
Every body has a weight range it feels comfortable at, and when we actively suppress our weight, we are living in a state of chronic stress. We may not be aware of this stress because it’s covered up by the compliments and approval from others, but in those quiet moments when we’re by ourselves, struggling with a decision about what to eat, we can feel it.
.
If we lived in a culture that didn’t equate size with value, where everyone was treated equally no matter what they looked like, would weight loss matter? Would it make us happier? I’m placing a solid bet on “no”.

Everyone has their limits and it's your job to figure out what those are for you. It is not your job to belittle/judge others because their limits look different than yours. We all have to find ways that work best for ourselves. This is true for so many parts of our lives. We shouldn't judge yourselves based off others. Just like they shouldn't judge you based off how they deal with life. This is something I have to remind myself of. We are all humans just trying to figure out this thing called life. We all bring different experiences which makes us deal with life in many ways. What is right for me may not be right for you. And that's okay.

And while I loathe to bring BMI into the conversation, it is really interesting to note that we don’t make those athletes that have a BMI that puts them in the ‘obese’ category lose weight before we give them surgery. They get the health care they need and most go back to doing the very sport or activity that damaged their knee in the first place. Again, with no judgement about the ‘waste’ of resources. How messed up is that?!

Health At Every Size®️ (HAES) aims to bring awareness to injustices, weight stigma and discrimination like this and rectify them (e.g. through changing health policies to be weight inclusive). HAES is about acknowledging and respecting body diversity rather than pathologising specific weights. And contrary to misguided beliefs out there, HAES is also about eating and movement for wellbeing. This is why I am a HAES-aligned Dietitian.

🇮🇹Avete presente quando un'amic* vi dice "sono grass*" e voi rispondete "no, sei bellissim*?". Non fatelo. Si può essere entrambe le cose. Grasso non è una parolaccia. Andate nelle stories in evidenza per sapere cosa ne penso di tutta la questione Ferragni/Corriere e del body positive mainstream in generale. 🇬🇧 You know that thing you do when your fat friend says they are fat and you reply "no, you are pretty?". Well, don't do that, they can be both. Fat is not a bad word.

I don't know why my head looks misshapen, I was too busy trying to get the traditional dog photobomb in to notice 😂. T25 Cardio- and I look like someone's taken a hose to me 🤣. Liked it a lot, I think this is my favourite kind of cardio workout. Dance based workouts use such a lot of my mental energy concentrating on what to do. Others like Shift Shop have moves that are a big strength challenge for me that I'm better off doing steadily and carefully. With some modifications, I could go for it with this one. I ended up working out my own modifications so less jumpy that the full version but more than the modifications given. Worked well 😊. Finished off with a few Pilates style moves I'm now doing daily for my core, hips and knees ☺️.

The terms “overweight” and “obese” are ways we pathologize bodies. They are terms that are borne out of the Body Mass Index (BMI) which is a TERRIBLE way of determining someone’s health (let alone categorizing size).
.
When we take “overweight” and “obese” out of our vocabulary, it’s a way we can move one step closer to seeing all bodies as good bodies. Because without this ridiculous BMI, what exactly is body weight “over”? All bodies are not meant to be thin, they come in all different shapes and sizes.
.
So let’s stop using these terms ok? You get to identify your body as you want. I for example say I’m in a medium-sized body. Without any judgment or moral indications associated with body size, there is no issue. It’s just where my body naturally sits, just like some people may be fat, and some people may be thin.
.
NOTE: One caveat. Because of the heavy negative association with the word “fat” in our culture, some people may not use that word to describe themselves, even if they are in a larger body. Many people are reclaiming this word as a descriptor for themselves (because that’s what it is), however I don’t use it to describe a specific person unless they choose to use that word for themselves. I do use in in general terms to help destigmatize it.

I’m beginning to get tired of the book, F*ck Feelings, by Michael and Sarah Bennett. While there’s a lot of good stuff here, he is also a bit of a asshole. He thinks it’s fine to “experiment creatively with incentivizing healthier behavior” As if people are lab rats. NO people have a right to determine for themselves if they want to be healthy. Your body is your body and it is your choice. No manipulation allowed. Honey, please-I think it’s time to move on. #fatacceptance #edrecovery #intuitiveeating #HAES #honeyplease #selfdetermination

🌻 This quote by @jnicolemorgan sort of blew my mind. I’ve been thinking about it all weekend. I see this so often in clients and even in myself. We project so much about what we think and feel about life onto our food choices. How have you seen this show up in your life and the lives of the people around you? 🌻 Example: people who feel unsafe in their relationships will often seek safety in food choices. For myself, this shows up when I am not staying aware where I will fall into a pattern of safe eating when life gets overwhelming. At one point in my life, this left me with only a handful of food options and guess what? Limiting my food did not give me the safe/comfortable feeling I was seeking. Instead it made my life even more overwhelming and difficult. 🍤 Disclaimer- whenever I talk about “safe foods” I am never talking about very real food intolerances or allergies. My husband has a pretty serious shellfish allergy and it would be pretty unsafe for him to partake!
