A Rant on Weight

While health is important, we are obsessed with weight in our society, our own and other people's. To all women and girls: please do not let anyone use your weight as a means to control you by making you feel guilty, or unlovable, or unattractive, or unsuccessful because they have decided that you are "fat." If you want to lose weight because it will help you to feel better and have more energy and therefore accomplish more, then that is good!! But don't lose weight because of other people and what they say or think. People who really love you will love you no matter what your weight is! People who are going to criticize you will do it even if you become as thin as a supermodel! Weight has become a tyrannical social control over women in our modern society, worse than any real or imagined grievances of the past. Whatever your weight is, true beauty comes from within! Share
