Today I've seen a post from #KimK selling appetite suppressants.
I literally could just face palm the ground with how stupid and irresponsible that is with someone who has probably got 90% of her following as young men and women.
I stopped dieting when I realised it was massively effected my mental health. I became obsessed and it took over and was slowly destroying so many aspects of my life. I am not saying people can't loose weight and be body positive, I'm not saying you have to only be 'fat' to be body positive BUT I am saying you do NOT need to force yourself to starve! This is what an appetite suppressor will do! It will stop you eating, eating nutrients your body needs and how she thinks it's appropriate to sell that is beyond me!
I started posting pics of what my body looked like because I rarely saw fat rolls, cellulite and thunder thighs out there and I was obsessed with following accounts that were '#bodygoals' until I realised mine was just fine the way it was.
I wish people were more responsible with what they post and understand the effects that can have on people who follow them especially celebs like KimK. She doesn't need money, she doesn't have to do #ads and I truly believe any brand you work with should be a partnership, one you really believe in and would recommend to family, friends, use on your children etc whether being paid or not.
Kim has two daughters. I can't imagine her letting them have these lollipops! Or encouraging them to take them so why do it to other people's daughters? Why is that ok?
I strive for healthy body, that DOES NOT mean slim. I want to be healthy enough to have a good life and see my girls grow up. I strive for them to see All different body types so they never feel like theirs isn't 'normal'. They may be tall and slim or short and chubby and either way they will be beautiful if they are good people with good hearts.
You do NOT need to starve yourself. You do NOT need to kill yourself exercising striving for a body like KimK that no doubt isn't even natural or real!
Change your mindset, understand just how important and wonderful you are and please speak up if you don't feel ok. You are not alone
