No matter how much I "try" to not let it get to me, the word FAT to me is the same as "FAG"...
Someone could simply say "overweight" or "gay" as apposed to these negative words..

And they are Negative, Fat IS Negative.

. Lets be Positive Team!!! emoticon

yes we need to talk about fat and how to get it off our bodies and our childrens bodies . we are walking a slippery slope tho and must use care when we speak to others about "thier fat ".so many are hurts by others words and mishandle the feeling that overcome them while they feel badly about them selfs .kindness in all actions.

Please be gentle with the "Fat" topic. A person's personal physcian would discuss the matter with them.

From Sadie Stein at jezebel :

" ... Today marks the start of 'Fat Talk Free Week.' It's a five-day national public awareness effort, intended to draw attention to the damaging impact of fat talk and the 'thin ideal' on today's women. Mental Toughness expert Steve Siebold, author of the book Die Fat or Get Tough; 101 Differences in Thinking Between Fat People and Fit People, calls it ridiculous, and says this is just another chance for America to ignore the obesity problem.

"Former "fat tub of lard" Siebold is also here to tell is us that "Not talking about the problem is only going to make it ten times worse. People need to hear that they're fat so they'll finally do something about it once and for all."


To Steve Siebold:

"It's just a week which is what makes [your] alarm so ludicrous but if that's making people think, making them less self-critical and more kind, and making just one person consider why it is we blindly promote one ideal over that of 'health,' well, it will have done its job. Don't worry, sir, there are 51 more weeks in the year. For the rest of us, we'll take it as a challenge."
