I love myself, but I don’t love my body. And maybe you shouldn’t either

sirenkay:

I saw a #glorifyhappiness on my tumblr today. The person addressed a question she is often asked if her promoting body happiness is promoting obesity. Regardless of what she said in her post, it got me thinking. I have talked about this before, but when has that stopped me from writing about it again. I want to start off (for those that don’t know) saying that I am overweight/obese, so this is not coming from a “skinny all her life” person. I HATE some of these “Love your Body” campaigns because they tell people that they should love their bodies no matter what they look like. If you are obese you should not love your body.

Please do not try to tell me that an obese body is healthy. Obesity is not healthy. Ever.  (unless there is some glandular problem I am unaware of) You are lying to yourself if you think it’s anything but unhealthy.  Also, telling yourself that you are chubby, curvy, thick, etc. does not change anything. Mindy Kaling, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Lopez, these girls are chubby, curvy, thick.

If you want to love yourself I fully support and encourage that, but everyone should strive to be healthy. Does healthy mean Hollywood skinny? No, that notion is ridiculous. Does healthy mean a six pack and never eating junk food? Again, the answer is no. The definition of healthy is flexible, but obesity is never, and should never be, in anyone’s definition of healthy.

I am 5’9” and weigh approximately 260 pounds. I am seriously out of shape, but I wasn’t always. I used to run every night. I was never skinny, but I was healthy. Being overweight is something I have struggled with my whole life. I love myself, but I don’t love what I have done to my body. People should not love their fat. It shouldn’t be celebrated when an obese person says they love their bodies. They should in no way be shamed (there’s too much of that), but they should be encouraged to get a healthy mind and body.

I realize that people may get upset with my opinion, but I don’t care. Being obese should not be celebrated. It’s an epidemic that has gotten out of control under the guise of self-esteem. Don’t love your body, love your healthy body. 

Well look at this fucking moron.

"I don’t care! I know stuff about things! Really! Since I’m fat I can tell other fat people how to feel about their fat!!!"

Nope. You don’t have the right to tell anyone how to feel about anything. Take care of yourself and your own self esteem before you start diagnosing other people with problems they don’t have.

Okay, it’s an adaptation. Read through this: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-pumpkin-spice-latte-even-better-than-starbucks-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-96277

Subsitutes:

  • Instead of 2 tablespoons sugar, use 1 teaspoon of Nectresse (or whatever amount of your preferred sweetener- it was just all I had on hand).
  • Instead of 2C milk, use 1C heavy cream and 1C water.

That’s it! It was delicious. Doing it that way your only net carbs are from the cream, which at <1g/tbsp, comes out to around 5g for this if you assume that <1g to be .5g.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies (Keto)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Hannaford Creamy Peanut Butter 
  • 1 tbsp Nectresse
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 oz softened cream cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F. Add all ingredients to a bowl. Mix until well incorporated & consistent throughout. Roll into 1tbsp-ish balls (recipe should make 20). Bake for 10 minutes.

Serving size: 1 cookie

Nutrition breakdown per serving: 93cal, 8g fat, 4g protein, 4g carbs, 1g fiber. Net carbs: 3g.

* Note: Hannaford Creamy PB has 5g net carbs per 2 tbsp, contributing 56g carbs to the total of 73g carbs in this recipe; using a lower net carb PB will lower the net carbs per cookie. Using a different sweetener can also help, as the Nectresse contributes 12g (though this is predominantly Erythritol, so if you don’t count that in your net, keep in mind that the net carbs per cookie would then be 2g.

Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. Natalie Dormer

I will reblog all Dormer I see on my Tumblings.

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.
One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
 ”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter Emily Weyer aka Milly Makara was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at 951 229 3394. Thank you in advance”. -JILL WEYER

I am still selling all of my earthly belongings and trying to sell with my etsy shop. If you could take a look and see if there is anything you are interested in I would very much appreciate it. If not, if you know anyone, can share this I would be grateful. I need to come up with at least $75…
