By fawning over weight loss—or secretly gossiping about weight gain behind someone’s back—you are overtly reinforcing a very real system of oppression that uses body size as a barometer for awards and demerits. .. everyone has the right to dignity and respect and a fulfilling life inside of the body they have. Constantly pointing to the reduction of body size as an achievement is creating barriers to that essential and fundamental dignity and respect for body that fat people deserve.
They all weigh 150lbs There is no ‘right’ body type. Weight looks different on different people, and it is ALL OKAY. Don’t compare yourself to other people’s bodies, learn to love the body you’re in NOW and what it can do NOW.
The piner that posted this said, "This is me on Bob Harpers (biggest loser trainer) website. when I have a lazy day I need to remember how far I have come. 98 pounds down, size 18 to size 4. I lost even more after that picture was taken." That really motivates me because I'm a size 18!
"Weight and body oppression is oppressive to everyone. When you live in a society that says that one kind of body is bad & other is good, those with 'good' bodies constantly fear that their bodies will go 'bad' & those with 'bad' bodies are expected feel shame and do everything they can to have 'good' bodies. In the process, we torture our bodies, and do everything from engage in disordered eating to invasive surgery to make ourselves okay. Nobody wins in this kind of struggle."— Golda Poretsky
I am a med student and personal trainer. I’ve been obsessed with nutrition, fitness and weight loss for many years. I wanted to write a detailed article to explain exactly how to lose weight fast, using methods that have been scientifically proven to work. This article is pretty long, so grab a cup of coffee (or tea). “What do I need to do to lose weight quickly?” I get this question almost every day.
