As some of you may have figured out, I have FINALLY gotten my fat ass together and started working out and trying to eat better so I can become HEALTHY. Please note that I did not write skinny.
I don't want to be skinny. I want to be healthy. There is a HUGE difference.
Today at the gym, I saw the same girl that I have been seeing for the last 3 weeks at the gym in the Zumba class. Now if anyone else looked at her, they would say she is fat. If they saw her outside of the gym, they would automatically think that she doesn't work out and judge her for being fat. I am purposely not using the word "overweight" because let's face it, more people use the word fat. But what those people who are standing there and judging DON'T KNOW is that the girl who is currently maybe about 250 pounds has LOST 100lbs SO FAR. Now she deserves an award for losing almost 100lbs!!!! But you see, if you weren't at the gym and heard her talking about her journey, you wouldn't have known that. We as society judge so quickly with the notion of fat people. We will gladly talk to our friends about that fat person, even if it's a friend or stranger!
So, I am here to say
"Shut up and stop judging fat people ESPECIALLY if you don't even know them. Who are YOU to judge? God? No, you are most certainly not. So how about you spend some time not judging but encouraging."
I know, that there is a strong and maybe mean statement but it had to be said.
Why people can be so mean and ignorant is beyond me, but lately all over blog/twitter/instagram/facebook land I have seen people judge others for their weight, but yet they have no idea who that person. So, how about we stop trying to make ourselves better by calling someone else fat and let's start being motivators for a healthy lifestyle.
