Weight Loss Is NOT An Achievement.

  • Erin Ellert

    How is weight loss not an achievement if it gets the person into an activity that they love (like a sport) or helps them love their body? I understand what your posts are all about, I follow you and agree for the most part. But shaming people for being proud for changing something they are unhappy about instead of being depressed and not trying to change anything isn't really helpful.

    I do agree that as a society we see being skinny as being the best thing a woman can be and I do believe that is awful. Their is so much more to life than being a size 0. But not all weight loss is bad!

    Erin, did you read the whole article? From your comments it sounds like you either didn't or you didn't understand what she was trying to say. Weight loss is not bad. She never said that (and neither do I). But for many, MANY people simply eating right and exercising isn't enough to become thin (lose weight yes, get thin, no). So even though they're leading a healthy lifestyle they still aren't happy with themselves because they haven't lost all the weight they want to lose. The most important thing is to stop equating the number on the scale with self-worth and will-power. Check out the article I pinned from Everyday Paleo that shows a lady who got in great shape but her weight remained exactly the same. Puts things into perspective, doesn't it?
