"10 Habits of Unsuccessful Dieters
All the cookies you didn't eat, all the willpower you maintained, all the minutes you logged at the gym--so why aren't you losing weight? These bad habits may be to blame"
That's the blurb in one of my many emails from sparkpeople. I do not binge on cookies, and cookies are not the reason I am fat. In fact, I do not binge on sweets at all.
Why does sparkpeople continue to discriminate against people who don't fit the popular profile of the fat person?
I'm not fat because I don't have willpower. I have lots of willpower. I've been very strict as a vegetarian for nearly 35 years. Don't tell me that isn't willpower!!
I don't work out at a gym, or at all these days. Is that why I am fat? No, no it is not.
So what is this all about, sparkpeople? Why this continued myth about fat people? Shame on you!!! Of all the groups on the 'net that are designed to help people get and stay healthier for the rest of their lives, sparkpeople should be better than this.
