Haters Gonna Hate

Someone asked me recently, “Why are you blogging your weight loss?” and then they asked, “Isn’t it embarrassing since you’re not thin?”

fearsI think these questions need to be addressed. First, I am blogging my weight loss, because it keeps me going.  I blog because if I don’t blog, I fear I’ll stay overweight forever. I fear if I don’t lose weight, I’ll lose out on a long and healthy life. I also hope to inspire others to try a healthier life style, too. Sure, I could wait until I’m fit and only show those photos, but it’s nice to see the journey along the way. Second, sure it’s embarrassing. Hey, look, I have  a fat roll in my picture. Hey look, I can only do very basic things in the gym right now. But I’ve found people are going to judge me no matter what I do. I’d rather have them judge me for trying rather than not trying. Third, these questions bring up an issue within our society. I’m not any less of a person for being overweight. A thin person is not automatically a better person than I am. Someone working out is someone working out… It shouldn’t be considered embarrassing because they’re bigger… Shame on anyone who things that way!

I have faith I can do this (and haters gonna hate).
