#ThursdayThoughts – PERVERTED THOUGHTS3 min read
It’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to write anything. I’ve been trying something new for the past few weeks, which was creating videos for these #ThursdayThoughts. I like creating videos, but I also like writing. It’s a bit more therapeutic for me. I know you may be questioning the title, PERVERTED THOUGHTS let me explain.
We live in a society where everyone is trying to be so politically correct. The fear of stepping on someone’s toes or offending someone by the slightest of words. There comes a time where we have to be honest with ourselves first and foremost, as well as others.
Having a great feeling & looking body is better than not having one. The perverted thoughts I’m referring to is the thoughts of not having one. There’s a sick message going around trying to make people feel good about not taking care of their bodies and overall health. Like, “It’s OK to be overweight”, and all the sub categories that fall under that. That is sick, and that is perverted.
Being overweight is not cool at all. There are so many dangers to being overweight it’s scary. You have risk of stroke, high blood pressure, heart failure, false confidence, diabetes, kidney failure, etc. The list goes on and on and on. The instant reaction to the thought of the suggestion of losing weight is, I LOVE MYSELF AND I’M HAPPY WHERE I AM. It’s just B.S. as a shield. I was once that person who had that same reaction. It’s a defense mechanism.
If someone suggest or the thought comes in your head about losing weight, it’s coming from a form of love and honesty. I’ve always lived by the motto, “The truth hurts, but it works.” Love is tough. It’s one of the many mysteries in life we all are trying to understand. If the suggestion of better health is brought to your attention, there could be a better chance than not, you need to take heed to those words.
I was once on high blood pressure pills, and had to sleep with a machine to help me breathe because I would stop breathing in my sleep. Both attributed from me being overweight. Even in those moments I did not want to accept that my weight was causing that problem. I did not want to accept that my gargantuan size caused me to pay more for my clothes. BEING FAT IS EXPENSIVE (that’s an idea for a post later down the line, lol) A 5XL costs $2-$3 more than your standard M-LG shirts. Once again, I felt that everything was OK. This is the way things are meant to be.
NO NO NO!!! That thought of perversion kept me stuck for so long. It’s not ok to not be healthy. It’s not ok to be overweight. It’s not ok to question or look down upon an individual who is taking care of themselves like something is wrong. I got questioned more when I lost weight if I was sick as opposed to when I was over 400 pounds if it was ok for me to be walking around that big, that young. Once again, a perverted thought. Thinking that bad is good, and good is bad. We have to change our mindset as a people.

you have a way of catching people attention. when i read the heading, i was trying to figure out what you was about to say. i KNEW it wouldn’t be something bad because you don’t talk like that but i was still curious. What you said, is so true.No one should shame anybody for being big or too skinny. it’s all in encouraging one another to be a healthier person.
Everyone has to want better in life.
If you settle, thats just a perverted mindset.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this issue! Great post. I go to the gym six days a week and I’ve often had people say I’m crazy or obsessed. But of course it’s not crazy for them to sit in front of the tv eating chips for several hours every evening…
You hit it right on the head there!
This was an awesome post!! I have been feeling similarly with a lot of websites. I stopped and asked myself, why are we as a society pushing this off as acceptable. Anything that accepts any human as less than their best is not cool to me. Then to broadcast less than thoughts, disturbs me all the more. Thank you for shedding light to this issue!
Thanks for your feedback!
I’m glad you can relate. Thank you again.
You are spot on with your thinking. Great post.
I agree with what you say. “Fit shaming” (or even “skinny shaming”) is still a major issue. Can’t we all just get along and pull each other up instead of looking down?
You got that right
We all need to take better care of ourselves individually you know
