A Letter to the Hypocrites...

There is something that I have to get off my chest that has been annoying me for a while. Some people might get upset but this is my opinion and I'm sure others agree....

Scrolling through my Instagram feed and I see hypocrites preaching one thing but meaning another.

You cannot promote body positive one day and the next day promote losing fat to be skinny.

There is a huge difference between losing weight for health and losing weight to fit in to societies definition of "skinny being beautiful."

I agree that working out once in a while and eating healthy are important for our bodies and our health. BUT, it isn't our whole worlds purpose.

How can you comment on our pictures, telling us how beautiful we are but then slip into our messages trying to sell us weight loss products?

Please learn the difference! I realized being in this industry for a year, that they are more judgmental then those who are on the outside.

They say...

You can be fat.. but not too fat
You can be yourself.. just not like that
You can have curves but only in your boobs and your butt

All women who are plus size have fat everywhere! Not all plus size women have big butts and tits.

The Body Positive movement is to spread awareness to all women and men !!! All women and men who feel like they aren't good enough when they are.

Women who have been told to change something on their bodies to "fit in".

Stop using your platform as a model, or blogger to sell weight loss drugs or products to women who are trying to accept their bodies for what they are. I know it sounds harsh but you are being a sell out! Cant you see they are using your platform in our industry to promote for their weight loss industry?

All your doing is slipping in the cracks of the wall we are trying to put up from the diet industry!!!

Your trying to fit in as one of us.. but push us down as soon as your here. You cant have your foot in the door of our world and the rest of you in societies black whole of denial.

I wonder if you are just stuck in the middle....

 One part of you wants to love your body and show it off. The other part of you is being dragged down by society. You want to be liberated and love yourself but your still letting society control you!

You have one foot in the door of confidence but they are dragging you down to their level.

You are on this journey of self love and acceptance but you hear the whispers of the other side telling you to lose weight and sell that false dream to us.

DON'T LET THEM WIN! Don't let them bring you back to the dark side! More important, stop trying to take us down with you!

Some brands are the blame too and are hypocrites!

Stop letting skinny girls model your clothes!!All your doing is giving us false hope.

The hidden message i see is.. "Wear this so you can look like us". We don't want to look like that.. We want people who represent us!

Stop separating the plus size category with the women category and make clothes fit from a size small-4x.

Stop reposting and promoting girls who are a size 10 and representing them as a plus size woman.

Can't you see.. We want to see women who look like us!

There is so many things I can say, but it is going to take more than words to shape our culture. We have to support those who support us! There's room in this big world for all of us! We have to shop at stores that represent us. Support movements that make a difference. Stop body shaming other women. If we continue to tare each other down, we will never get anywhere. SAY HOW YOU FEEL! i have been so scared for too long to let my feelings out! The TIME IS NOW!

A letter to hypocrites is the first of many letters to people who aren't on our side. Stay tuned for more!!

I had to get it off my chest.. my blogging isn't just about the fancy clothes i wear or places i go. Its time to say how i feel!
