I know this may seem a harsh, but I really have noticed this movement called "fat acceptance" which claims to encourage ladies to love their bodies at any size. But wouldn't you think that if someone truly cares for themselves, that they would also take care of themselves? I hate to say this, but men are repelled by extremely overweight bodies. It doesn't matter how good your hair looks, if you are morbidly obese, you are setting yourself up for harsh criticism from men. I have been called fat multiple times at my size. And even though I am trying to better myself everyday, it doesn't stop the criticism from coming. So I know the pressure. But I still think that we should work to better ourselves everyday, in spite of the problems we may face.
The truth is, there is more to being attractive than just taking care of your hair. Many of us were fit when we were young, and remained fit until we reached a certain age. Why? We become more laid back as the cares of adulthood take over. As we began to settle down, many of us begin to become less active. Thats when our health begins to spiral down. If you want to maintain your health, getting into a work-out program for at least 30 minutes a day will help get you toned. Healthy nutrition is a part of it. And I'm sorry to say, but the 'fat acceptance' movement isn't going to cut it. It only works to keep people from bettering themselves and improving their health. I have seen people beyond 40 that look absolutely amazing. Why? Because they worked at it. They made the sacrifices. Those that are in their 40s that are fit and beautiful, I applaud them. They've done better than a lot of people who are in their 20s and are making excuses not to better themselves. People like Jennifer Aniston, Zooey Deschanell, Billy Gunn, (and some female wrestlers that are 40+), and some people in my family that exercise regularly and take good care of themselves, those are the people that inspire me the most. So don't think it's too late if you are 30+ and out of shape. It's possible to look good when you are over 30. Seeing this helps me stay motivated.
