I’ve gone off on this particular subject before, but the absolute ridiculousness of the term begs for it to be done over and over and over again until every bloody soul on the planet takes a good long hard think about what the f*ck it is they are actually saying when they use that bloody phrase.
The video past the jump deals with it beautifully.
More often than not fat acceptance and fit acceptance are mutually exclusive ideas (ideals), but I really don’t think they necessarily have to be at cross purposes all the time.
See, you can lose all the fat in the world, but if you don’t eventually come to terms with yourself and get comfortable in your own skin it will all have been for nothing.
If you want to make changes, by all means – make changes.
But demonizing your fat is too close to demonizing yourself. When the fat is gone you still have you to deal with, and you will have much more success IMO (and enjoy your success more) if you deal with yourself first and treat your fat as the byproduct of life that it is.
