Quote of the Day: Fat Acceptance Made Exercise Easier

One of the things I like exploding people’s heads with is the fact that embracing FA made it *easier* for me to exercise. Before, exercise was always this horrible, dreary thing I “had” to do so that I’d be “thin,” and if I didn’t get “thin” I was failing, which made me not want to exercise. Once I accepted fat as okay, exercise became a lot more enjoyable, because it’s something I do to feel better and find enjoyment in movement and how my body works, rather than an obligation I dread. I can enjoy exercise on its own terms now, and that makes me more likely to do it.

    I couldn’t agree more. I work out because it makes me feel good, not out of some so-called obligation to lose weight.
