*I must state this has not happened to me personally, but I keep seeing it happen and it's starting to rub me the wrong way*
Leave people alone!
I'd like to say I am active on social media, especially my Instagram more so than anything else and I post frequent/daily posts, food posts, motivational pictures and sweaty post workout selfies and thankfully I haven't come across as much hate as some other people who I follow, who are on similar journeys and who are amazing, and I've began to notice that a lot of the time it's other fitness/weightloss people who are throwing the same shit as the people who throw it but are sitting on their asses. So naturally I am confused by this, I thought everyone was in it together, I thought I'd see encouragement and praise and a lot of the time I do but about 5% of the time I'm seeing hate and it's really starting to piss me off. (excuse my French)
If you LIFT, who are YOU to tell someone who doesn't, they're not going to achieve their goal?
If you do solely CARDIO, who are YOU to tell someone who lifts, 'ah you're never going to lose weight, you'll just bulk up and look like a man'
UNLESS WHAT SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING IS PHYSICALLY HARMING YOU, OR KEEPING YOU UP AT NIGHT AND YOU'RE LOSING SLEEP, AND YOU JUST CAN'T GO ON ANYMORE - KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!
Unless you are someones doctor, nutritionist or mother, you have no right in your little self to give advice, or tell someone they're not doing something right, just because it's not what you're doing.
and one more small thing
There are some big women out there who are spreading the body positive message in saying, no matter what size you are, you are beautiful and I TOTALLY SUPPORT that message, but please don't come to me and tell me it's a shame I AM not embracing my body as it is.
Let me just say one thing, my body is mine and at this moment of time it is the heaviest it has EVER been in my whole entire 25 years of existence and I DON'T accept this weight. I accepted that this was where my body went at this certain time but I will not accept that this is where my body will always be in the future. So don't tell me it's a shame, don't shame me for not accepting my body how it is now, that's my problem one I'm tackling.
I feel like weightloss and fitness is seen as a religion to some people and some people like to thrust their way on to others, well guess what, it's not religion it's a lifestyle choice and change and if I'm happy if anyone is happy with how they're doing it. LEAVE THEM ALONE.
As always peace and love. X
