So I just mentioned a few posts back that I still see myself in a different light or still see the former *Jodi*. The overweight, very unhealthy and
drunk happy fat girl. When I buy clothes I buy an extra large shirt and most of my jeans are two sizes too big. Which I have explained to B and my best friend feel like clouds wrapped in kittens (in a humane way people). I love baggy clothes, or gym clothes it is RARE to find me dressed up or in a dress. I am not sure I own one that actually fits right now.
I read a lot of blogs, I used to OMZGLOVE a lot of blogs and although I still enjoy reading some of them from time to time I also get very stabby when I read certain posts.
There is this revolution going on (WHICH I AGREE WITH) that is to change the thinking of body image, self awareness of down talking or body policing ourselves to death. I believe in this movement to an extent. YES you should love yourself at any size, shape or place that you are in life. NO you should not judge yourself based solely upon what size clothing you wear.
But I do not believe that every person that speaks of diet talk, working out or training for some sort of event outside of do-nut curls is an anti-fat person or is down talking an individual that is not in the same clothing size or weight class. THIS GIRL LOVES do-nuts too!!!!! Just ask B.
Why can't women just get along? Why can't we all have our place in this world. If I am speaking to someone who is a different size than I am and I mention I am training for X race at Y distance does that NEED to offend that person? Because I am "diet talking"? Could it just be something that really gets MY spirit moving?
I am by no means asking this person to inflict themselves with such torture. I am not advocating for change, I am not suggesting that physical fitness or running, or yoga, or WHATEVER is for everyone I am saying it lifts my mind to a better place.
So this happened. I LOVE this idea but where does it end. Can I not be supportive of your movement even while I am challenging myself in a different direction?
Can't we all just love one another.????
