Disturbing Facebook Post
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
This morning when I woke up to use the restroom, I took a scroll through my facebook newsfeed. I was disturbed by the comments under an image that was posted of a woman breaking out of her old self. Pretty much, it looks like when the Biggest Loser Finalist bust through an image of their old self.
A lot of negative comments were on the picture. Most of the women were upset because they don't want to be "skinny." I like being BIG was the overall theme of a lot of the women. One lady even went on to say that she hated the picture because she's healthy at her size 22, and until she becomes unhealthy she doesn't like a picture promoting "Skinny." Mind you that the woman busting out of the picture still had curves:-P
Yeah, I rocked confidence when I was bigger; however, I know for a fact that being that big was not healthy or okay. I hate to read how content some of those women are with life.
My response to the post was along these lines.
"Weight loss doesn't help your self-esteem, but after losing 180 pounds, I sure do feel more me than ever. I was the person that hid behind my weight. Glad I don't have to hide anymore! Pic caption: "Breaking Free From Me"
I edited and here's the picture: 2/20/13
