No Fat Rolls Thank You.

There are not too many things we can genuinely control in life.

Our level of body fat happens to be one of them.

It's very true that our society perpetuates a lot of unhealthy and unattainable ideals of physical appearance.  And that it places too much emphasis on physical appearance.

But forget about that, to buy into that debate about what ideals should be promoted is merely to get caught up in the superficiality itself.

I think we all owe it to ourselves, to treat our physical selves with respect. This body has to carry you every day, throughout your existence. What sort of person takes better care of their car, and their domestic appliances, and their house exterior and interior than they do their own body?

Well, plenty of us. But there's no real sense to that is there now?

What will provide our loved ones (future or actual) more happiness? A well maintained car, or a partner/father/friend/lover who has the best health that they can achieve? The effects of good physical health are too numerous to mention here, but it is anything beyond superficial - your body is the container and wellspring for all things in your life. It is good that it keeps our minds and emotional hearts alive, but why not have a body that helps you soar in all areas of your life?

I don't hate the fat but I do hate to see fat women squeezing into clothing that don't fit. I hate the excuse of I don't want to buy a new outfit until I lose weight. My first thought is please find something to fit your d*** body I don't want to see all that meat hanging over.

Its funny how people seem to ignore the obvious, like being in their bodies, and not realizing these things you say until its too late. Its sad to see so many people let their health go out of control, become sedentary and overweight, then wonder why they have things like high blood pressure or cancer. I`ve seen too many people disregard the fact that they need to take care of themselves in favour of their ignorance to it.
