I've been trying to come up with a Fat topic all day long. For some reason, I'm having issues.
Who's to say what's Fat? Who's to say who is healthy or unhealthy? Why do we constantly have to critique people?
Where does the position of Fat start and the position of Thin begin? Do I need to lose 145 pounds to be considered thin or do I need to lose 146 pounds? Does that one pound make a difference? To some people--people with eating disorders or body image disorder, it does.
What does this do to us? Us as individuals and us as a society? It makes us look at each other, it makes us obsess, it makes us look at ourselves and go on and on and on.
I found myself talking to friends today about what to blog.. and I was saying, who say's what Fat is? And I was saying: to someone who is 600 pounds I may be thin, but to someone who is 100 pounds, I may be fat. BUT that's wrong of me to say. Maybe the 600 pound person still sees me as fat, or maybe they see themselves as not fat. Maybe the 100 pound person is trying hard as hell to gain weight, but has a super high metabolism and can't and they yearn for my body? Or maybe they have issues with eating disorders and consider themselves to be fat and aim to be smaller. It's a whole huge ordeal. And by saying what I was describing, I was immediately putting a label on the 600 pounder to be fat and the 100 pounder to be thin.
What do you all think?
