When It Comes To Obesity – Get Up Off Your Fat Ass And Exercise, Right?
I read an article recently on Thunder God Vine, and it was about how Celastrol can help reduce Leptin insensitivity. I scrolled down to the bottom to read the comments because I was going to add some facts I found in research, and honestly, I was absolutely appalled at what I read there.
I don’t know about you, but I am SICK of all the “shaming” that is going on. When it comes to weight loss, EVERYONE “KNOWS” the answer.
It’s not rocket science, get up off your fat ass and move!
It’s simple: calories in = calories out
Everyone knows fat people are emotional eaters, so they are not going to stop eating if they feel full
Make healthy choices and you will lose weight
Cut carbs and pounds will MELT off
Sugar is the devil!
Again, taking ALL responsibility off the fat people, get real!
Or my personal favorite, “No, just EXERCISE you lazy gits!”
And to each and every one of those people, I want to say…. PISS OFF.
Everyone who doesn’t have a problem with weight has THE ANSWER.
But in reality, no, you don’t. You don’t know the struggle that weight is for some people – it can consume your entire LIFE. Every movement. Sitting down. Getting up. Sleeping. Going through the store. Taking a walk. Sex. EVERY. LITTLE. THING. And if you haven’t been there – then kindly take a step back and shut it.
Don’t tell me you have the answer, that a “one size fits all” REALLY fits all. If you’re skinny, should I assume you are HEALTHY? Does every skinny person run, obsess about organic food, eat lettuce for every meal and puke in secret? What? No?? But if every fat person is lazy, then every skinny person must be a health freak, right?
Or maybe, are there some people who are skinny because they are fighting cancer, fighting for their very lives? Are there some people who are skinny because they just actually CAN’T gain weight? Maybe they were just born that way? Are there some people who are skinny because they are fighting anorexia every day? Bulimia? Body dysmorphia? STARVING THEMSELVES because they think they are not perfect enough to fit into our society?
Did you ever think that maybe the girl starving herself and the guy overeating – maybe they are doing it for the same reason? Maybe they both feel ugly. Unwanted. Not ENOUGH. Maybe someone called her a bag of bones, or someone called him a lardass. Both hurt. Both are unnecessary.
Maybe the man fighting for his life with cancer who is thin as a rail (but HEY he looks GREAT!) is fighting the same battle as the woman who is overweight and fighting Lupus – fighting to have the ability to move without excruciating pain every day.
Maybe, just maybe – we ALL have different reasons for the way our bodies are.
And does that mean that telling that woman with Lupus to get off her fat ass and exercise is going to HELP? Does that mean that telling the anorexic girl who can hardly eat 500 calories a day to just eat a damn cheeseburger already is going to make her BETTER?
We need a serious brake check, people, on our mouths and our fingers when they speak for us. Quit the shaming. Quit fat shaming, skinny shaming, gay shaming, whatever it is. Keep it to yourself. You don’t know what battle the person you are talking to is fighting. So do us all a favor and shut it.
And as to the comment I was going to post in the article I read (but felt it was pointless since everyone else was already pointing their fingers) thunder god vine for weight loss is a GREAT TOOL. It’s a tool. It makes sure you feel full when you ARE full so you can stop when your body is saying it’s appropriate. It doesn’t jerk the spoon from your mouth and lock the fridge. You still have to do the work.
Anyone who tells you that they have a “miracle weight loss drug” is lying. Celastrol works with your body, but you still have to help it. Thunder-god vine is VERY useful, and it has really helped me, but I had to do some work too. I had to learn my eating triggers. I had to learn to not only listen to my body, but to take action when it said it was time to stop eating.
Oh, and, while we are at it, what’s MY “excuse” for being fat? Rheumatoid arthritis – taking years of steroids to combat the ill effects, coupled with being in too much pain to even walk down the stairs at times. But I should just get up off my fat ass and exercise, right?
