Intuitive eating is teaching me so much but I still struggle with boredom eating.
I think the TV, the Internet (hours of scrolling), and sitting on my backside for too long is causing the boredom.
I just need to figure out what stops the boredom:
- Attempting Yoga,
- Cross Stitching,
- Listening to Music (not for long),
- Face masks,
- Sewing in general.
I need to remember these next time I nearly overeat!
11. Stop hating yourself.
12. Being able to read your thoughts and reactions more honestly, because you’re not trying to suppress them.
13. Overcoming negative feelings about your body-thereby liberating yourself to explore more of what it can do.
14. Not continuously apologizing for your own existence/body.
15. Not feeling the need to make endless gestures of subservience to fat phobes or any other bigots.
16. Applying your beliefs to those unlike yourself
17. Overcoming habits of mindless obedience
18. Stop playing the ‘obese’ role
And so on..
I’m being serious these things make yourself and the world more interesting…

It’s not so much food obsessed fat characters that get on my nerves. It’s the projection of other people’s obsession with fat people’s supposed obsession with food crowding out everything else.
Personality, character, intellect or any perspective that comes from being fat.
I’d like to see some more irreverence from characters who don’t give a damn about received opinion. I’ve found being fat has given me a sense of distance from what’s politique or nice as we are often excluded from its niceties.
I’ve spent much of my life feeling outright arch.
Well, if you aren’t part of bullshit pieties, why should you have to acknowledge them or give much of a crap? Why should you feel duty bound to shore them up?
Let those who benefit from them act in their own interests, whilst getting all po-faced pretending its all about morality.
Its premise deals in the assumption that fat people are motivated solely by rage, anger and resentment towards haters or those who enable them. Well, when people hurt you or standby and say nothing, it is reasonable to have strong reactions to that.
I get this is not supposed to be insulting and that some fat people can trade in this or appear to. But I dislike people assigning meanings to physical size in this way. I am the size I am despite or because of -depending on your view-spending a lot of time trying to be slim.
There’s no rebellion in recognising that didn’t work. The choice is not fat or slim. The choice is to acknowledge my body as is, or not. I choose to acknowledge it. The same way other people are more likely to take for granted. It’s as much a mental health issue as anything.
If I wish to be defiant, I wouldn’t use body size.
It simply wouldn’t occur.
