I hate it when girls sit around and start to talk about what they don’t like about their bodies. Some do it for attention, ala Mean Girls, pausing for you to re-affirm that indeed, their flaws are all imagined. Some do it out of habit. Some, sadly, do it out of a genuine loathing for their bodies.
If you want to be more fit, do something about it. Get up and walk. Lift hand weights while you watch TV. Put down that snack! We aren’t meant to be super skinny models, but if being healthier is your goal, then Good Golly Pete, be healthier, one step at a time.
But if you want to be “perfect” or look like your favorite actress/model/celebrity – just stop. Stop right now. Happiness isn’t found in a media created perception of perfection.
We need to first stop the “fat talk” at home. Don’t let those words come out of your mouth! God created you in HIS image. You are beautiful! Genesis 1:27.
I love Caitlin’s stance on “fat talk” and she’s started a campaign for us ladies to rise up and support one another. One little note at a time. So visit her blog, and I challenge you to STOP the “fat talk” if you are guilty and encourage others to see the beauty that is she. (she's got great recipes too!)
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
