I wanna be firm but I don't wanna have rippling muscles.

I like the art. I feel that the human body is an amazing masterpiece. Not a big fan of the quote. I think it promotes an abusive attitude about the body. Being fit isn't about punishing yourself or beating yourself up to the point of bringing major harm to yourself.

Sometimes I think the things that you post bring horrible attitude. Being severely over weight and not doing anything about it is bringing harm to yourself.....

Please show me an example of when I was seriously telling people to do nothing about "it"... I promote health, not thinness. The first step in health is positive self-acceptance.



Giving people permission to love themselves as is is not bringing harm to anyone. It has improved the quality of many people's lives. Can you really care for something that you loathe and despise?

Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" Motivational quotes are always needed to be taken literally. Basically, you need to push yourself, not punish yourself. Few people push themselves hard enough. "


What is hard enough?

I like the picture! I hate the quote.



I think it is a dangerous idea when working out. If it hurts, you shoudl STOP and evaluate why it hurts. There is a reason so many of the biggest loser people end up with injuries during their training. Over training is a problem especially for beginners . Pushing yourself is good, seeing what you can actually do it good, however almost any Dr will tell you that if you push yourself to the point of throwing up, fainting, or dying (lol) you are doing WAY too much and at risk of harm.

So at what point to do you reach the point of accepting your horrible fate enough to move on to the next phase of being healthy?

This is a clip from at least one time she said this (she may have said it other times too). I just don't care for that. Basically as long as you look good injuries don't matter? Meh. I think people don't push themselves a lot of times, but they also OVERDO it and end up hurt and/or discouraged. Moderation is key in nutrition, and should be in exercise too IMO. FYI, I think she sounds nuts, haha.

Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" Obviously the point where you start to actually, you know, get healthy. Most people give up and just decide to accept they way they live and stop trying to improve. "


I believe they give up because they aren't seeing he weight loss results that they would like. Working out and being active are beneficial to the body.... but if you focus on the number, then you lose track of the benefits your body is receiving from just getting physical.



There are a few studies that cite physical activity as the #1 predictor of health independent of weight. I'm all for being active and eating good foods that make you feel good. There's a balance that doesn't include abusing your body to alter its appearance. Does that make sense? Health is very important to me and I think I get misinterpreted quite easily.
