I think it’s really funny how girls are always so worried about carbs when about 50-60 percent of your energy source each day should come from carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are only bad for you if you eat them in excess and receive them from highly processed food. You bitches wouldn’t be so scared of them if you weren’t always turning to processed food.
All of my “rants” are not in my rant page.
I see so many weight loss blogs that struggle with body acceptance. They keep saying “I will love my body when…” and things of that nature.
During your weight loss journey, you should not only be learning how to better nourish your body, but learn to accept your body. Otherwise, you will never be satisfied. You are you. There is no reason for you to strive to have someone else’s legs or abs. I’m going to be honest and tell you that sometimes your body doesn’t agree with you. You may want something for it that it doesn’t want. Always remember just how amazing your body is. It deserves to be loved and respected. Beating yourself up about your body is a terrible motivator. It creates more self-loathing. And even if it doesn’t feel like it, you will always be able to find something you like about your body. When you have those bad days, because we all do - just embrace that part of yourself. Do something that makes you happy instead of spending that time bashing yourself. Building a positive body image is something that is incredibly difficult to do and is a long ongoing process. You can’t expect to read something like this and instantly love your body, because lets be realistic - that’s not going to happen. You slowly have to realize that you are who you are. We can’t physically or mentally change everything all at once. Everything takes time. In the society we’ve grown to love I feel we have not been able to appreciate time. Everything just seems so instant, and we’ve grown impatient. But we can’t be impatient with our bodies. That is a set up for failure. Learn to love yourself and be happy, don’t expect things to always go your way and don’t expect things to happen overnight. Be content. Be patient. Be observant. Listen to your body. It’s incredible the things you’ll hear once you are tuned in to listen.
I get really angry when people that are overweight like to talk about how “It runs in the family” “I could never be smaller” “I’m just big boned” “It’s my thyroid”. I don’t know if they actually believe this, or if they are just making excuses. If they actually believe these things, I feel really bad for them. They are so incredibly wrong, it’s sad. If everyone in your family is big, they didn’t inherit each others body type, they inherited their bad habits. You CAN be smaller, it’s not impossible. And the argument about being “big boned”……….l o l. There are people that are big boned, but there are only a few. Unless you get checked out by a doctor, I don’t want to hear the excuse of you just being “big boned”. And in the case of the thyroid, my mother has thyroid issues and good habits and medicine can easily help with that problem. I’m just tired with all the excuses. If you are fine with how you are, then that’s okay! I really don’t care. But don’t complain about your body and then make excuses for it. You did this to yourself, and you need to acknowledge that.
I’m sorry but…if you have never been fat in your life, you don’t understand how it feels to be fat. Don’t tell me it doesn’t matter, because it does. We all have our insecurities, but just because we don’t share the same ones doesn’t mean you have to tell me mine are silly and stupid. Don’t sit there and nag on me for eating healthy and making a good change for myself. And when I tell you it’s not all about the weight and wanting to have a slimmer body, don’t accuse me of lying. I’m not doing this ONLY to be thinner. I don’t understand why that is so incredibly hard to believe. You don’t know the things that run in my family…you don’t know how sick I’ve gotten. Don’t act like you know everything. I’m tired of feeling like shit. It’s not just my self esteem that’s bruised. That’s not what all this is about. Of course I want to look better, who wouldn’t want to look better? But that’s not my only reason for doing this and I’m tired of people trying to tell me it is.
I’m not only learning about how to be healthy physically, but also mentally. I’m tired of being stressed and anxious and depressed. I’m trying to get better and feel better in all aspects. And if you can’t respect that, then quite frankly..all I have to say is fuck you.
