I’m sorry Fa bloggers, what were you saying about healthy food being too expensive? This among many was a great sale going on for in season produce at my kroger. Suck it.
So, on top of not understanding how the human body works in any generality, we can add the concept of “too expensive” and “linear experience of time” to the list of things that fat-haters don’t grasp.
First, guess what? “Too expensive” is a relative term. There are people out there who don’t have a dollar to spend on something perishable and relatively low calorie. Yeah, that’s right. Low calorie is a problem when you’re trying to stretch a very thin food budget, because the body needs calories to get through the day. You need nutrients in the long run, but you’ll collapse from a lack of calories before vitamin deficiencies show up.
And it’s not like you can live on strawberries alone, either.
So there are people who, given the choice between buying stuff that’s “healthy” but not enough to live on or buying the stuff that will get them through the week, will have to buy the stuff that gets them through the week, or even the day.
To put it shortly: yeah, congratulations, you found strawberries for a dollar. Now put together a nutritionally sound day’s worth of food for a dollar. Then figure out how to do it on fifty cents, because there are people who don’t have a dollar every day.
Then do it with a quarter.
There’s no floor on poverty.
And then… time. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m seeing a little thing that says “Was:$2.something” and is crossed out. And another thing underneath it listing Sunday-Tuesday. Hmm. It seems like these strawberries usually cost 2-3 times as much, and this is a limited time offer based on a not entirely predictable overstock or something.
So, the question is, do you not understand that this picture you’ve taken is a snap shot of one instant of time, or do you think poor people only have to eat three days a week? Which is it?
By your logic, all I have to do is take a picture of strawberries at four or five dollars a pound and I have disproven your point FOREVER. Because that’s all it takes, apparently. One picture.
I’d say “try harder”, but I actually don’t want you to do that. Your nasty toxic triumphant spewing of bile helps NO ONE and accomplishes NOTHING. If you tried harder, all you’d be doing is making things worse for more people, and it wouldn’t even be a case where you were selfishly enriching yourself at others’ expense because this doesn’t do anything for you, either.
You want to focus on your fitness? You want to take advantage of the transportation, food access, and money that you have available to you to get the food you feel is the most healthy and nutritious? Oh my gosh, you just go right ahead and do that and no one will think the worse of you for it. Literally no one will have a problem with it.
But this? This crowing and posturing here? That doesn’t help you. It doesn’t make you healthier. It doesn’t make you fitter. It doesn’t make you better.
It just makes you toxic.
This comment is a must read and should be published and you should be given an award and Obama and Beyonce should present it and congratulate you for being a kick-ass individual! Okay, I’m done fangirling <3

Me trying to seduce anyone
“To find myself yet again in a place that I did not anticipate has absolutely broken my heart.
This time was different, this time I was stronger. The scales became irrelevant to me and I was euphoric that I had the strength to get out of bed every day and eat six (huge) meals and neither know nor care what the scales read at the end of the day. I had finally, deservedly found happiness.
Apparently, ignorance is bliss. Unbeknownst to me I had not only plummeted, but to a number I had never even been before or dreamt was possible. I have never been so angry or frustrated that life could seem actually tolerable, once in my miserable existence, and all of a sudden that freedom can be taken away from me.
I am beyond repulsed at how I could be so oblivious, not only again, but to an extent I have never surpassed.
A photo that a fair majority of you commented on regarding my physical state shows nothing. According to my gp that was me another ten kilos ago. This just reiterates how fast things became completely and utterly out of my control. You want proof ? Just ask. I deserve nothing more than the humiliation of showing you the emaciated monster that my own mother can’t even bare to look at, created by what I have done.
I hated myself before this happened, I hate myself now, and I will undoubtedly continue to hate myself after this with an unfathomable ferocity. There is no escape, this is sempiternal, infinite, forever.
So I want those of you, who do exist despite my efforts to be a good person, that will sleep with a smile on their faces, who will gain satisfaction from this news, whose day will be a little brighter tomorrow knowing that once again I have failed, am miserable, am mentally vulnerable beyond your capability of understanding, that I would feel this way regardless, because every single day is another struggling, personal hell. And the disgust of how I could be so reluctant to acknowledge that once again my obsession with self-detriment - and to a degree of such severity - will haunt me, tear me and kill me until the day I am finally six feet under and cannot harm my loved ones with my pathetic excuse for an existence any longer.”
This is Emily - A 16 year old girl fighting an illness no one should ever have to undertake.
Her own words - “I have struggled with this for so long, in and out of hospitals, but I’m done with it and I think being public about it will really help me to realise it’s okay to want to be healthy and the more people that understand, the easier it becomes for me to want it - does that make sense ? I’ve tried everything else and I’m desperate to do whatever it takes to have a normal life one day.”
I know this may seem pathetic but I have resorted to tumblr. I, other friends and family cannot stress enough how much we care about her future. I don’t believe she knows how many people do. This post is to show how many people in this world are out there and actually care about her precious life and what she is going through.
I know this would not suit 99% of blogs on here, but even one note would help, just so she can get an idea that there is love, hope and a future for her.
Stay strong em, we all love you.
Emily is overwhelmed at the 2000 notes that this photo has.
For my best friend in the whole world, Emily, I will reblog this a thousand times if it could only help you see how loved and cherished you are. You mean the world to me, and from the day I met you, we’ll, I loved you beyond what I have any other person yet. If I could take your fears, your worries and carry them so you could be free, believe me I would.
I will be by your side, despite the distance between us, and fight with you to save the absolutely stunning, amazing and heart warming person you are.
You just mean so much to me..
