To Anyone Who Has Called Someone Fat

To Anyone Who Has Called Someone Fat

Over the last year I have lost over 45 pounds and still get various remarks regarding my weight. It has taken me 19 years to get to a point where I love my body and see it as something beautiful instead of something to hide and be ashamed of. I have stretch marks instead of a six pack and have cellulite in places that are edited out on most Victoria Secret advertisements and I am okay with that. I have come to the conclusion that I will never be a size 00, nor do I want to be. No matter how much weight you lose, people are going to criticize you. There is no point in worrying about those people because at the end of the day you are "damned if you do (lose weight), and damned if you don't". When you lose a lot of weight, or if you are born naturally skinny people feel the need to say things like "are you eating enough?" and "don't get too carried away". However, when you are overweight people feel the need to comment on the amount of exercise you do everyday and make comments like "are you sure you should be eating that?". Just because I workout everyday and try to eat healthy doesn't mean that I don't deserve to eat a brownie or cookie every now and then, because lets face it who could give those up? We live in a society that obsesses over a number on a scale, and judge a person based on the size of their jeans instead of the size of their heart. It is hard to ignore this fact when even the President chooses to call women "fat pigs" and "disgusting". As a society we need to see past the superficial aspects of a person because in the end they do not matter. As long as that person loves who they are and is proud of the way they look, then who are we to tell them they are wrong?
