Using weight to define health is inaccurate, unscientific prejudice. It directly fuels discrimination in the workplace, from insurers, in medical care, and in social interactions. The war on so-called “obesity” [sic] is a war on fat people. Doctors already exhibit dangerous levels of weight bias. Fat people deserve care, not condemnation. Correlation≠causation. Behavior≠BMI. Weight≠health. Hate is not good for public health.

So M and I decided that we need to take care of ourselves better, so we started going to Spin class, which, surprisingly, we both really enjoy (despite the fact that we had to buy some padded cycling shorts for M because he is all skin and bones, poor guy). It’s refreshing to be living with someone who loves me for me and doesn’t care what I look like as long as I’m here on this earth for adventures while simultaneously looking out for each other/really putting an effort into making sure our bodies will keep on keepin’ on for many, many years to come (see: trying to give up smoking, drinking less, eating lots of fresh veggies, and 8 hours a night of cuddles).
