7Famark saidSo I was just channel surfing this morning and decided to watch an episode of True Life, and it was about people that are happy to be overweight. There were two girls, and a gay guy.
I know that this is an old episode as I've heard people talking about it before but I had never seen it, and it was so interesting!
It made me wonder like...at what point is "being proud of your size" and "loving your body" a cop-out for not living a healthy lifestyle?
I think it's great for people to be happy and love where they're at, but can this be a destructive attitude to? IDK, it just had me thinking.
Maybe it's because of where I am from but alot of people (namely of color) have no issue with size..atleast not as much.
I hate to bring race into it but from what I have seen, and again from what I HAVE SEEN.
Biggers girls are more capable in the black community to get men rather than skiny girls..of color.
I saw that episode to and the black big girl explained this.
Men in the black community prefer size and shape and even pounds over skinny figure, and even the girls who are healthy want weight in the right places.
I have 3 sisters aswell as many black female friends, who hate losing weight because if they lose they ass or breast it is the end of the world for them.
Now there is a difference between being comfortable with your body and being lazy and not wanting a healthy lifestyle.
Everyone doesnt want to spend hours on end working out day after day, and they shouldnt have to, but that doesnt make one lazy or "copping out" not saying you said it that way but still.
Some people do carry weight alot easier. Like for me, I have to eat healthy all day and sometimes I barely eat at all just to either lose weight or maintain my weight, while I know guys who eat hamburgers everyday and never gain a pound.
So much goes into weight and how you put it on and take it off, hell even where it goes.
etc etc etc
I do have to say that the black girl even though she was big was pretty,
also you have to realize that being big puts you in a different layer/level same as being a different skin tone.
Shes beautiful , and so with her not being skinny she isnt judged next to the skinny girls, because shes not like them, which she also explains in the show.
Its hard to get but simple all the same, depends on how you look at it.
However, alot of things are unhealthy including, drinking, drugs, steroids, bareback sex, over working out etc, smoking.
I think everyone has a vice of some sort.
But at least they are happy with who they are...that's something even I can't say I am.
