I am ALL FOR loving your body. I am ALL FOR being happy with who you are.
However, when you are 400lbs and promoting that you are HEALTHY on television, that’s where I have a problem. Just watch the first ten minutes of ANY episode of Bones, no matter the size of the person, their bones are ALWAYS the same size. And yes, I realize it’s a tv show but the facts are still real, no matter what you weigh, everyone’s bones are the same size. They DON’T stretch to accommodate fat. Your heart is not like the Grinch’s, it doesn’t grow three sizes just because your body does.
Think of your body as a car. Now load that car up with thousands of pounds, what’s going to happen? It’s going to start breaking down. Your body will do the same. It is not made to carry 300-400 lbs.
WHITNEY WAY THORE IS NOT HEALTHY. And I am sick of seeing her argue that she is. If she wants to be 400lbs, fine. I have no problem with that. In fact, I used to love watching her show in season one because she promoted being happy with WHO YOU ARE and I think that is important. If you are happy with how your body looks, then I applaud you. Truly. But now, in season 3, she is promoting that her body is healthy and that’s just not true. Being .1 points below being a diabetic is NOT healthy. Needing a breathing machine to sleep at night is NOT healthy.
I don’t write this to shame people. (Although I know some will take offense). I write this because I care. I would say the same things to anyone in my family if they were that big. I don’t want anyone to die before they are supposed to because they think they’re healthy when they are not.
Again, if you are HAPPY with who you are and how you look then I am HAPPY for you.
All I’m saying is that if you are 400lbs, you are not healthy. You may be happy but you are not healthy.
