It’s fun debunking the lies body positive activists (body militants) spread to the other members of their community, especially the one where slim people starve themselves. I usually imagine them being sooooooooooooooooooo ‘triggered’ that they’re huffy and puffy and red in the face 😛
My darling niece is a beloved family member. All of us dote on her. She’s sweet, docile and also a chatterbox. Her friendliness and innocence warm strangers’ hearts and win her lots of smiles. Because we love her, we want her to grow up healthy AND with a positive body image. Thus, we instill good eating habits now, rather than attempt to change them later.
My man – bless him – was peeling prawns for everyone. Yes, I’m lucky that way : )
I eat a few portions of salmon sashimi. It’s delicious, nutritious and contains healthy fats and omega-3 oils which are beneficial to health.
Do I eat carbs? Absolutely! I also enjoy making food presentable on my plate rather than piling on everything at a go. Sloppy eating isn’t feminine.
Curry laksa. Yum yum yum yum yum!
My niece is very active and runs around A LOT. She also has a healthy appetite and we expose her to nutritious food. Loving our younger generation means caring for them and giving them a head start in life. If she does her part by eating well and being healthy, she WILL, with time, develop a positive body image.
We’re not about to tell her she’s a special snowflake because rewards are earned, not freely doled out. This is how society works and the sooner she learns it, the better.
And yes, slim folks eat. We don’t starve. Don’t listen to those lies. You’re way smarter than that, aren’t you?
Wishing you fun,
