When we stop labeling food “good” or “bad” then we can stop labeling ourselves as such based on the foods we eat.
Cut the food guilt and there’s a whole lot of time right there for just about anything else!
Commenting on someone’s weight loss (aside from reinforcing the false ideal that fat=bad and thin =good) might be complimenting someone with cancer, an eating disorder, depression, food insecurity, substance abuse, and a whole lot of other conditions.
In case you haven’t heard yet or have been absent from social media like I have (cuz ya know, #life), Weight Watchers (now known as WW because they want to pretend they’re not a diet) has teamed up with Kurbo Health to provide a weight loss app for kids as young as 8 (but advertised on iTunes as being for ages 4+).
Just dropping in to remind you that you don’t lack willpower for eating an extra pancake, drinking a latte, eating the kids’ leftovers, or having a cookie (or 12).
Thin privilege is real folx!
