My issues about obesity don’t have anything to do with thinking that obese people are ugly or hideous or disgusting or anything like that. Honestly I think a lot of obese bodies are beautiful and many obese men and women are attractive.

My issue about obesity and people accepting it and being proud of being a bigger person is that it promotes a more sedentary lifestyle and very lax eating habits.

So if somebody is encouraged that obesity is beautiful and charming and all good things, they might neglect the negative impacts that obesity may have on their own bodies. This makes me sad because I feel like we’re given one body in our lifetimes and it is our vessel.

I feel like we should take good care of our vessels inside and out no matter the size or temporary status.
