The recent viral f*t shaming posts in media seem to be under the impression that their superficial and ignorant “advice” will motivate overweight individuals to lose weight, when the evidence points to the exact opposite!
stigmatizing and discriminating against overweight individuals has in several studies been shown to promote increased caloric consumption, weight gain and onset of obesity! in addition, this stigmatization leads to emotional stress and a feeling of not being in control of one’s situation.
focus should be placed on motivating people to live a healthy lifestyle and build healthy habits which will ultimately lead to a longer and more fruitful life.
choosing “fat people” as a target for this stigma is not only superficial but also ignorant as there are plenty of people with an aesthetic physique who still aren’t living a healthy lifestyle.

Little thought for today💭💯
don’t hold back or play it safe because of what other people might think. work hard, stay humble, be proud of every achievement big or small. keep people around you that support you, understand you and always appreciate all of this. but, it is important to also be okay with those who don’t understand this. it’s all about doing what you can to maintain positive energy💓💫
