Ok, so my Mother saw this woman on tv who is plus sized and she runs an entertainment show. So she said that this woman should lose weight. And I was like why?
And she said, because I would like her to do so, like 5 kg less, she would look so much better. Everybody is losing weight and she doesn’t, you should also lose weight. I was like ok, everybody is the master of their body, they decide what to do with their body.
She was like no, doctors say it’s not good, you could get diabetes and heart problems.
I’m so tired of this kind of thinking, even if she is my Mother. Everybody is entitled to do with their body whatever they please. People are healthy at any size. In my 22 years, I’ve never heard her say you look good like this, no, I should lose weight, then I will look even better.
She said it’s a matter of will, you can lose weight if you want, if you have the will to do so. I’m so tired of hearing this. When I was younger she made me diet and so on and now, I’m older and wiser. So ok, in her words, I do not have ambition, will, what have you. I am this way and I am beautiful this way.
Everybody is ok just the way they are. Don’t diet to show you have “will” to lose weight or just because the outside world’s telling you to do so.
Just be yourself!
