All bodies are good bodies and you know what’s really healthy? Kindness and acceptance, I hope you’ll get healthy, too. Because. You know. I’m really worried about the effect of your negativity and body policing on your health. You the perfect stranger. Please seek psychiatric help, it’s very, very serious you deal with your negativity. It might even kill you! I mean, I read an article that said so once!

Anonymous said: I want to accept myself and my body for what it is because I know I'll be happier but it seems impossible. I am, in fact, unhealthy. How can i not feel bad about myself when I can't climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing?
I’m pretty sure you’re trolling. But it’s a good question, so who cares?
A) You can not feel bad about yourself by choosing not to. (Unless you are a troll) if you truly want to accept yourself and your body, then you need to start being as kind to yourself as you would to your best friend. Would you throw hate on your best friend if they couldn’t climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing? Very unlikely. So cut that shit out. Which leads me to…
B) Billions of people can’t climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. Billions. Not just fat people. Plenty of thin people can’t climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. Does this somehow make them “bad” people or somehow morally wrong? How is being unable to climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing a reflection on a person morally? The concept is entirely absurd. So that’s another way to choose not feeling bad. It’s ridiculous to feel bad. There’s no logical basis for it. And lastly…
C) Here’s the thing that no one wants you to know, especially people who make money off of you feeling bad about yourself for not being able to climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing (AKA people in the diet industry, medical industry, beauty industry, food industry and health industry- which is like at least half the fucking capitalist industries in first world countries):
When you feel good about yourself, you start being kind to yourself. When you like your body, you start to take care of it.
Accepting yourself and your body as not defective or morally wrong is the fastest, easiest, healthiest way to become healthy.
So if you want to be healthy, you can be.
