Until I was prepared to accept and respect body as it is, I remained disconnected from it as somehow apart from me. I did not feel whole. Health is not just energy manipulation. Eating and exercise. It has a spiritual element and yes, I say that as an atheist.
Who you feel you are, how you feel about yourself affects everything, from the way you move, to the way you are able to cope with the events of in your life.
Nobody who has any feel for human or any other well-being would ever recommend the way fat people are treated as an aide to health or healing.
But I think the real point is ‘unhealthiness’ is not a reason to abuse, degrade, dehumanize or disenfranchise anyone, full stop.
My head is part of my body. My brain is in my head. My mind is my brain in action.
It refers to facilitating and increasing your well being from where you are. Instead of the nothing real starts until slim brought to us by the ‘obesity’ crusade.
If you don’t understand the significance of that for fat people, best not to pontificate about what you consider the essence of positive engagement with your own well being.
