Thanks to @happyshapesnaomi for making me a meme and transcribing the quote below. If this quote makes you uncomfortable, then you’ve probably bought into a cultural lie about fitness and sports, but don’t worry, you can help dismantle it just by doing the work to let it go! #Repost @happyshapesnaomi with @get_repost ・・・ I heard @ragenchastain say this on Episode 119 of @chr1styharrison’s Food Psych podcast, and it was so perfect that I had to share! . When we say that all bodies deserve respect, that is not conditional. Bodies that pursue physical activity are not worthy of more respect than other bodies. Exercising doesn’t make us good people, and not exercising doesn’t make us bad people. . What does that mean? It means that we have to stop looking at people in larger bodies and thinking it’s fine for them to accept their bodies “as long as they’re healthy.” It means we have to stop looking at our own bodies and thinking that it’s ok for us to look however we do as long as we’re strong, or fast, or flexible. . It also means we have to stop making excuses and feeling the need to justify our rest. We talk about this concept with food all the time. We have conversations about how food doesn’t have a moral value, and how we don’t need to make up for unrestricted eating. And this holds just as true for activity as it does for food! A weekend of couch time doesn’t have to be followed by a week of intense workouts. We don’t need to make up for a week without workouts by skipping rest days for the next 2 weeks. . Remember, physical fitness and health (whatever that even means, honestly) are not prerequisites for body respect! . . . #allshapescanbehappyshapes #morethanbeautyschool #beautyschooldropoutgoals #knowyourself #trustyourself #acceptyourself #allbodiesaregoodbodies #allbodiesdeserverespect #bodyrespect #bodyacceptance #bodyneutrality #exercise #healthism #fitfatties #riotsnotdiets @ragenchastain ragenchastain Ragen Chastain
