Hey everyone, I posted this video about body shaming. This video is a bit longer than the last few because this is such a large topic discussion and I wanted to make sure I got my point across, and didn’t rush through it. Body shaming is horrible and we need to learn to expand our vocab and find replacement words to describe ones self and others body. I think it is safe to say that if someone is overweight or underweight, there is no “nice” way of telling them and they know this already, so to make light of their situation with negativity is wrong. Hopefully all of you reading this will agree and will find other means of describing the way you look and others. I think if we push for words of encouragement we will get further. Using words like obese, overweight, underweight, etc. are okay to use in my opinion, because it is what it is, those are ways to describe someone’s weight without having to call them a “fat ass” or “twig”. Words of encouragement don’t have to be about someone’s body though, it can be about how they dress, what they smell like, etc. When you look in the mirror, it isn’t about saying “wow.. I look like a whale”, it is about turning that negative into a positive and saying “I love the way my hair falls to my shoulders” or “I have noticed I have lost some weight, awesome!” or “this outfit is super cute on me”.. etc. Fitness is not all about your body type, it goes beyond that in my opinion. I hope all of you enjoy my video, I was in my fitness apparel, ha.
