End The Fat Talk

I found this thought provoking video online which I thought I’d share. Do you find yourself using fat talk? Fat talk can mean different things to each person.

To me, fat talk can vary from the obvious self-esteem reducing self talk to much more subtle fat talk. Typical examples of fat talk questions or statements are:

“Does my bum look big in this?”

“I’ll do _____________ (fill in the blank) once I’ve lost weight”.

“Have you lost weight?”

If you find yourself making comments such as these, it’s a good idea to ask yourself whether that sort of talk is really going to promote wellbeing or is it going to keep you trapped in a diet mentality.

Enjoy the video!

  1. Great share Suzanne. Pretty scary to think that with all the advances woman have made in recent decades, we have dug this hole for ourselves. I was recently pleasantly surprised at some larger healthy sized manequins in a clothing store window at Sunshine Plaza recently. So much more needs to be done. Thanks for addressing this issue.

    1. Definately a lot more needs to be done to change the obsession with being thin. I’m confident though that the time will come when obsessing about weight and dieting won’t be such a huge focus…just need more people to speak out about the problems that focusing on being thin and losing weight causes….

  2. Hi there, FMA! Came across your blog via Blog Chicks – I’ve been enjoying what you’ve written and nice to see material from an educated viewpoint. Though I don’t care for Geneen Roth, I love some of your other book recs, particularly the Sheryl Canter and Roger Gould books. They have both been helpful to me in my own journey.

    Best wishes,

    1. Thanks for your comments, Liz! I’m a an avid reader of all books related to what I blog about. It is interesting as I’ve been reading the books over the last few years, how some books I might have not agreed with or considered helpful, now make a lot more sense, while others no longer seem to hold so much value or importance. All part of the journey of changing how you relate to food, I guess. I really like the Normal Eating stuff.
