FITSPO SUCKS OK

purgeat0ry:

  • Fitspo promotes orthorexia and overexercising (just the way pro ana promotes anorexia nervosa)
  • Fitspo encourages an unhealthy body image instead of self-confidence
  • Fitspo “goals” are unrealistic, stupid and thoughtless

This seems to me as a method justifying that eating disorders are equivalent to being fit/healthy. Those blogs that have all this “Get rid of muffin top”, “For the thigh gap”, “For the collarbones”, are NOT, I repeat NOT fitness blogs. Now, for the blogs that promote fitness—without eating disorder tendencies, and speaking for myself as well, orthorexia is out of the question. We eat healthy, and sometimes we don’t. Annnd then, we get over it. I only exercise an hour or so a day, and I’m sure other fitblrs do too, so how exactly is that overexercising if there’s 24 hours in a day? Moving on, how does fitspo exactly encourage “unhealthy body images”? If you don’t love yourself before you start losing weight, you’re not gonna love yourself after. Issues don’t just magically disappear after losing weight. That’s not the way it works. I don’t know about other people’s goals, but my goals are realistic, and I will achieve them. It just seems to me like you’re following the wrong “fitspo” blogs. It sucks that fitspo is now being blended with thinspo, as well.
