Myths and Misconceptions


Monday, March 28, 2011


We've all run into some myths and misconceptions about how fat people act or are... and now I'm here to weigh in my opinion on the matter!

Also, thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love for my last vblog! I hope that I can continue to inspire and motivate all of you, and I love you all!

    Great job breaking down some Myths and Misconceptions! One of my biggest issues right now is all the negative stereotypes about fat people that are being perpetuated on tv. It saddens me that so many people - even other fat people- believe these lies. We aren't all lazy! We can be beautiful! We can be happy!

Good luck on your weight loss journey, and keep up with the video blogs. They're fantastic!

    Great vlog as always!! The most annoying myths for me are the one about how we just eat big macs etc - I've been a vegetarian my entire life! And yet I still manage to be fat, so clearly it's not just the big macs. And I also hate the idea that we can't attract men - I have a friend who obsesses over whether a guy will like her due to weight, yet keeps forgetting that many men have been attracted to her because she is beautiful!

    Interesting blog... You've got ATTITUDE, girl! emoticon

I would (dare) to quibble on one point though - weight loss REALLY IS as simple as calories in being less than calories burned. What's NOT simple is making that happen, because of the host of complex reasons for which people eat (on the cutting back calorie side of the equation), and the difficulties in adding exercise or boosting metabolism (on the burning more calories side of the equation). That is where the problem lies, and that -I most whole-heartedly agree - is no simple thing!

    2:00 ~ Horrid.
Lazy, No self-control, Not beautiful, Couldn't get laid.
Those Myths were what kept me blind to the fact that I was obese.
I was none of those things.
That next myth of Weight Loss being a simple formula of calories in vs. calories out was a major stumbling block. That formal didn't factor the whole package of my being in and that I needed to work on some psychological roadblocks.
WoW, you are a riot.
I'm taking the liberty of friending you.

    Thank you for that!
I really enjoyed your vlog and "fat people can't be beautiful" is one of my biggest peeves in the world. I have a couple of the most beautiful friends in the world and yet they have always felt held back by their weight... despite being ABSOLUTELY FREAKING GORGEOUS! I only wish your attitude about beauty could be more contagious!

Thanks again!
Mel

I was thinking as I was listening, when people give myth one & two: If fat people never leave the house how do they get to Mc Donalds for the Big Mac & fries"? emoticon Just sayin'


You are so cool! I love your style. Here's looking forward to the next one! emoticon

    Oh most definitely, some people will close their ears to what is said no matter what. But hopefully somewhere someone will see this and change their mind. :)

    Myths continue because people perpetuate them and because it is easier to do so than to learn the truth
