I teach my boys that calling someone skinny is the same as calling someone fat.
Telling someone to eat a hamburger because you think they aren’t heavy enough is just as wrong as telling someone who is heavier to have a salad. 😒
If we don’t have something nice to say, we don’t say it + we don’t get to have opinions on someone else’s body.
I also help explain that if opinions are formed as human’s naturally do….not everything you think should be said.
I knew as I started back on my fitness journey I would start to get the slack from the side of “you’re too thin” people + “I would be happy with your before pic” people. It’s inevitable really. I try to ignore it only beucase they have no clue what I’ve been through, how hard I work, and only the few who are willing to do what I do, or go where I go will understand.
I just use these times as learning and teaching experiences for me and my boys on what not to do. #raisingmen
