It’s not okay to be overweight

Seriously.

Stop.

It’s NOT okay to be overweight.

It’s not okay to accept being fat.

It’s not okay to eat whatever you want in whatever quantity you want.

Just because you don’t want to take responsibility for your health, do what’s necessary to be healthy, and use every excuse you can think of as a crutch to remain heavy while eating all the things is not doing you or our society any favors. Why are kids obese today? Because parents let it happen. Because we say everyone is a special snowflake and should be accepted as they are.

FAT IS NOT SOMETHING YOU ARE; IT’S SOMETHING YOU DO.

I’m tired of hearing people tell me it’s hard to lose weight. NO SHIT IT’S HARD. You should respect your own life enough to break the sugar addiction (and yes, that’s the root of all this obesity going around).

Are you offended that I’m telling you what to do? Did I tell you what to do? Oh, telling you that you should respect yourself? That is insulting? Try this one: YOU ARE GOING TO DIE EITHER BECAUSE OF OR PARTLY BECAUSE OF YOUR FATNESS BECAUSE YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT YOURSELF TO SAVE YOURSELF FROM THAT FATE. Is that better?

There’s no nice way to say it. Being fat is not something to be proud of. It’s not something to accept as normal. It’s something we need to fight. Our country’s very existence may hinge on our health, and right now, we’re headed for disaster. When everyone is fat, who will do the work to pay for our healthcare system to care for all the weight-related health problems? Who will defend our country if everyone is too fat to meet standards in the military? Raise weight standards? Please.

Being fat is not healthy. The myth of the healthy fat person is just that; a myth. The media is trying to sell us BS because it makes them money. People don’t want to be told and don’t like to be told that they are doing something wrong. It’s not PC to say, “You’re fat and you need to change your life.” But I’m not PC. I’m not going to sugarcoat it or beat around the bush. I firmly believe that part of the problem is nobody speaking up about it. Nobody is willing to hurt feelings to get the point across.

My grandmother was famous for this. She would say, “My dear, it is not my intention to hurt your feelings, but as your grandmother, I feel it is my duty to tell you that you are fat and you need to change.” She literally said it just like that. Were my feelings hurt? Sure. Did she mean well? Absolutely. Did I listen? No, because I was too proud and I was too caught up in my own ego. She’s passed away now, but I know she’d be proud of me and this blog.

Being fat is not okay. Stop telling yourself that it is. You need to change what you eat, how much you eat, and learn to live healthier. Or you will die before you otherwise would.
