I have no patience for people who think that health has to ‘look’ a certain way.
‘Cut’ abs and muscular legs are not the only way to be healthy.
Do you see this picture? ALL of these women are Olympians, and all of them are healthy.
What about Holley Mangold?
She’s 374lbs. No, you can’t see her abs. But she just got into the Olympics as well. Do you want to tell me she’s unhealthy?
How about Ragen Chastain?
She’s a professional dancer who’s ‘morbidly obese’ and yet she’s in tip top shape, and even runs a blog about her work.
I could keep going.
Health is NOT visible. You cannot tell how healthy someone is by looking at them. You cannot tell how far or fast they can run. You cannot tell their level of fitness. You cannot tell how much they can lift, how often they work out.
And likewise, just because you look a certain way, or just because numbers on a scale are dropping, doesn’t mean you’re healthy.
BMI is bullshit. Everything they tell you on The Biggest Loser and Dr. Oz and the 5pm news is bullshit. Unplug yourself. Body size is NOT an indicator of health or fitness. And health does not dictate what your body will look like.
And most importantly at all: if someone isn’t healthy, it is NOT YOUR BUSINESS. And if you’re unhealthy and you’re happy, no one can tell you you’re wrong. Your body is YOUR body.
RELEVANT. ALWAYS RELEVANT.
