I love it. Fat people are so hypocritical, when it comes to them being made fun of or put down it's discrimination or 'fat shaming' but aren't they doing something similar to her? The message she's sending out isn't a bad one, in fact the people whining and complaining over this probably will make any excuse that they can to not lose weight and claim 'genetics' prevent them from doing so all while chowing down on McDonalds or something.
Wanting to remain fat is sending a bad message, not her.
I think the whole world should pick up this "fat shaming" trend. Being fat because you're too lazy to workout or even do basic exercise should be seen as shameful. You should be made to feel embarrassed for being overweight if you choose to sit around and do nothing but eat and be lazy, or make excuses to NOT workout or do something about your weight problem.
However, if you have a LEGIT medical condition that causes you to take on and retain weight, making it difficult to shed a pound here and there, you are clear of the shaming.
What has the world come to when fat people get offended for being told they are fat. Don't fucking whine about someone calling you fat. Do something about losing the weight. Eat less and excise more. What the hell is so hard about that?

This is fat shaming:
And I'm not even convinced that it's a bad thing.
Unless you have some actual health reason that stops you from losing weight like HCM or cancer or some serious disease... you really don't have an excuse... not one single excuse. If you're fat and you're that way because you chose to be... you don't get to complain about healthy people or judge them. You made your decisions. I think the worst part is fat people who have been fat their whole lives... they really don't understand what it's like to be healthy and how amazing it is. One of my old friends who I met through WoW was a fatty. I always tried to fat shame him into lifting, but he really didn't care. Eventually it go to the point where i couldn't even hangout w/ him. It was just too disgusting watching him stuff his face full of cheetos and then drink a 2L Mountain dew to himself. I realized right there that I can't be friends w/ fat people... more specifically fat people who don't care that they're fat and continue their habits.
As far as this girls case goes... she's done nothing wrong. When I saw the post, my initial thoughts were "damn, that's dedication and effort" but since not everyone comes from the fitness scene, they can't understand the hard work she put in. They look at her and think it's a challenge, so they start typing their negative comments to try and put the mom in her place. The mom is kick ass and she works hard for all her achievements.
hahaha, people are so funny.
"IM LOOKING AT A THING I DONT LIKE, I HAVE THE OPTION TO GO AWAY FROM IT BUT I WILL LOOK MORE AND COMPLAIN ABOUT THE THING I DONT LIKE BECAUSE I DONT LIKE IT, NO ONE IS FORCING ME TO SEARCH FOR THIS THING OR LOOK AT THIS THING OR REMAIN LOOKING AT THIS THING BUT I AM ANYWAY, ITS OFFENDS ME! ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME!!!"
seriously.... thats all i see when i hear of things like this.
I dont like blueberry, so i dont eat blueberry... im not going to continually buy blueberry containing things just so i can complain about how awful blueberries are...
Bitch no one cares get up and go to the gym and stop fucking crying. I used to trade homework for protection from bullies after school, man the fuck up, MAKE IT WORK. There should be a limit to your excuses lol.
I see it more as motivational and a wake up call for people making excuses for themselves that it being insulting.
there's nothing to afford or take time for in order to not be fat
being poor and/or busy doesn't make someone fat
About the medical condition / genetics thing.....perhaps, in some circumstances that might be true but it's the incredible minority. The huge portion of obesity is the chosen lifestyle....just travel around the world and make an honest assessment of "body types" between the US and other places. The difference is massive (no pun intended).
That's...depressing. I've just about had it with people in general. Society is going to hell in a handbasket at this rate.
She has a point: WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE? Today, that sort of thing is considered rude and egotistical, instead of motivating as it SHOULD be. People are fat, lazy, and they don't like it when others point it out, pure and simple. Good for her for getting/keeping in shape. At least she's not some 400+ lb fatass sitting on a couch or at a computer, complaining that someone who actually bothered to adhere to the discipline required to get in shape is trying to motivate others. Sickens me that people actually took offense.
My roommate asked me that same question about a year ago. Today, I've lost almost 50 lbs, and gained about 3 inches on my arms. I'm actually doing what is necessary to get in shape. Not because society wants me to be, since that's obviously not the case, but because it makes ME feel good, and not afraid to take my shirt off in public.
