anything over $10 is expensive
Actually, the entire thing is irrelevant, because this is neither a scientific journal nor high school fucking debate club. We are not here to make...
So last night I made a giant pot of rice, meat and veggies with my own stewed sauce. I thought it was the best. shit. ever. I ate two whole bowls I was so happy with myself.
About 3 hours ago I started thinking about cheeseburgers and now I can barely eat any of my food because I’m like angry at the vegetables.
Like my body feels disgusted with this great dish I made. I had a slight sadness induced cookie binge on Tuesday but I’ve been back on track since. The only reason I’m not ordering food right now is because I haven’t cashed my checks from work. So I’m like sitting here miserably hoping this feeling shall leave me.

It doesn’t matter how big you are, how old you are, your sex or how fit you are… you can change your life. You can have the life you want. Also another important thing I see when looking at these photos is that many of these people have achieved fitness, but are still overweight based on the number. Gauge yourself by how your clothes fit, how much better you move and how much more you can do.

Please read before raging. I don’t intentionally shame.
I have fat friends. Male and female.
But in general I don’t like people being fat.
The reason for this is that I try and reach for a higher level at times and I mostly see fat people as flawed.
Anything that keeps you from being at your best is a flaw.
But I have criteria.
The point of this is supposed to be encouragement but I think I rambled too much.
Anyway I think everyone should try to be their best and overweight people cause their own health issues by having too much weight and crushing themselves.
Do better if you can or be happy.
I’m not going to fly off the handle at you. I’m going to say stop obsessing over people that don’t concern you. What I look like doesn’t bother you. You don’t tell me anything new by talking to me about my body. I don’t want to hear your opinion about it. For some reason I “upset you” by just being myself.
Your criteria doesn’t matter to anyone other than yourself. You can see me as flawed all you like, but I’m a complete and amazing person with a multitude of talents and traits that make me marvelous. I am wonderfully happy but a lot of people arent. Fat people could be happy if people didn’t constantly tell us we were lazy, ugly, stupid and repeat that mantra our entire lives.
See and your fat hatred actually spans farther than fat people. When you look at someone and discuss how disgusting and obese they are, there are people who weigh 90 pounds who think you’re talking about them. I have friends who tell me how they wish they looked like me because I fill out my clothing or because I have a chest society deems more appropriate than a smaller cup. The first time that happened I was shocked because I thought thinness was a free pass to happiness but it isn’t. I know just as many thin people who are afraid of fatness and it exhausts them, it stresses them out and it takes away vital time in their lives to obsess over this. Body hate manages to affect people of all weights and shapes.
So save yourself some trouble, and stop worrying about fat people cause we’re not worrying about you. We’re concerned with our kids, husbands, boyfriends, family, friends, jobs, school and the multitude of responsibilities we have that I’m sure you have too. Getting upset over fat people isn’t your job and it doesn’t enrich your life in any form.
Oh and if you actually like the friends you mentioned in this article, you wouldn’t talk about them like they were terrible. So at the very least be honest with yourself and be honest about the fact that you just hate fat people so the friends you have can go and find true friends who don’t conditionally love them based on what they look like.
