Real Life and the Good/Bad Dichotomy

I’m not a good fatty. I’m also not a bad fatty. I’m just a fatty. 

Like anyone of any size, my habits vary. I’ve written about this before: some days I live off veggies, other days it’s pizza. 

Sometimes I talk about exercise. Because it’s part of my life. The issue that comes up a lot when a fat person talks about exercise is that they’re promoting the dichotomy between good and bad fatties. 

I don’t want to do that, because the idea of being a “good” fatty is extremely damaging. No one should have to exhibit specific behaviors to be given respect. However, what I eat and what I do are both important parts of my life. 

  
So just know that when I post about exercise, it’s not promoting weight loss, nor is it implying that doing the same thing I do is some sort of requirement to be worthy of decency. But I’m also not going to stop talking about my own life. 

For good measure, here’s my lunch. It’s probably not “good” by some people’s standards.
