You’re Fat. Get Over It. I STILL LOVE YOU!

This postcard from PostSecret is touching AND insensitive.

You're fat. Get over it from Starling Fitness

It reads:

You’re fat. Get over it. I STILL LOVE YOU! You can change if you want.

If someone wrote this to me, I don’t know how I would feel about it. Part of being able to change something is accepting it. I know that. I also would love to hear that an important person in my life loves me, even though I feel like a whale.

I guess the question in my mind that pops up has to do with the contradiction. If you love me, why would you care if I lose the weight? I guess you could love me AND want me to be healthy and fit. That’s not a contradiction, really. Something in that card strikes me as wrong, though and I can’t quite put my finger on it.

PostSecret‘s beneficiary is the National Hopeline Network. It is a 24-hour hotline (1 (800) SUICIDE) for anyone who is thinking about suicide or knows someone who is considering it.


Don’t Be Fast, Greasy or Fake

I love this motivational poster from Funeral For My Fat.

Don't Be Fast Greasy or Fake from Starling Fitness

It reads:

You are what you eat, so don’t be fast, greasy or fake.

Now, I might have to argue with the “greasy” part because healthy oils are ESSENTIAL, but surely, don’t be fast or fake, in real life or in your diet.
