White people in scary movies be like…
2014 in a nutshell
Just say “no” to pants that are too small for you. Really, why are you trying to squeeze into clothes that you can’t button? Just go up a size and you’ll be much more comfortable and happy with your overall appearance.
Just say “no” to starvation and denying yourself in the name of health and beauty. You need to eat and you deserve to enjoy what you’re eating. Food isn’t something that you should ever feel guilty about. If you want to nom, then go ahead and nom. You kinda-sorta-really need to nom in order to stay alive.
Just say “no” to living your life according to the tape measure. You are worth more than a number on that silly little piece of plastic - It’s going to fluctuate from day to day anyway. That tape doesn’t measure your value as a person, your importance, your abilities or your health. If it makes you feel bad or inadequate, why even have it? Throw that thing out.
Just say “no” to judging your health according to your appearance. You can be incredibly active while staying fat and maintaining a healthy balanced diet, while you can be “fit” while staying a couch potato who keeps Pizza Hut on speed dial. Your body shape is not a determinant of how fit you are. Remember that weight loss and fat loss are not inherently good things. Just because you may be getting thinner does not mean that you’re getting healthier or better as a person.
Just say “no” to using fat bodies as an illustration of something that people should be ashamed of or want to avoid. A fat body is not something that needs to be fixed. Fat is lovely, fat is natural, fat is part of who many people are. It’s perfectly fine to want to keep your chub and to appreciate it’s value, just like it’s fine to have none and love your thin limbs. Painting any body in a negative light does not make people healthier or happier, it just damages us.
And most importantly: Just say “no” to memes, thinspo and fitspo ideals that promote not eating as something positive and worthwhile. You can nom and still be a lovely, healthy person, while you can say no and suffer from a whole multitude of health problems. Your life and your health are multi-faceted, so don’t reduce them to quick little slogans like this.
Just say “no” to going against what you know in your heart to be true by justifying your fatness under a cloak of moral superiority.
When I made this “meme”, if you want to call it that, I was in the midst of a euphoric change in who I was, from identifying as a failure to identifying with the Real Me, someone who is slender, beautiful, and able to make positive, healthful choices instead of surrendering to the allure of short-term, harmful pleasures. I didn’t take it to extremes, and my doctor was thrilled with the changes I made. As am I.
I want my readers to take this in, because this right here is the heart of thinspo:
Thinspo tells you shouldn’t be enjoying the food you need to eat every day. You have no value beyond that which a tape measure can calculate. Your health should be judged based on overall appearance. You need to say “no” to eating in order to be worthwhile.
All because thinspo sees fat bodies as things that need to be justified. All because thinspo people are offended by the concept of you actually loving yourself.
So I genuinely have to ask, Alyssa: Why is it that you can actively support disordered eating patterns and fatphobic thinking because it has personally made you feel better, but the body positive community can’t give support to all bodies because it makes us feel better? Why is it okay for you to publish a guidebook for weight loss, but we need to justify our choice to maintain weight?
When you are framing thinness as beautiful, healthy, positive and euphoric, and yet framing fatness as harmful and anti, why it is the body positive community that’s supposedly hiding under moral superiority?
And if you want people to experience the same euphoria that you are, why wouldn’t you support everyone’s right and ability to reach their own conclusions about what makes them valuable as a person? Don’t they each know their individual Real Me better than you would? Is someone else’s Real Me something that you can really define for them?
