Breaking Bounderies

Why is it that as a society we have this overall view of who large women are "supposed to be"? That they shouldn't be working in fashion or any public place where they're body is seen, or they get bombarded with stares and secretive comments? This happens all the time, it's happened to me plenty of times, if you have a problem with how I look or what I wear I would much prefer you to come up to me and voice your opinion instead of whispering it in secret like a bully and a coward. Our country prides it's self on being a "fit" and "health conscious" nation, but we use that as a front. When we really should be education children from elementary level on how to properly care for their body and health, through nutrition and consistent, habit forming excersize. Excersize shouldn't be a task, it should be second nature. The small simple things can change your life, you can park farther away in a parking lot, or instead of rewarding your child with food, reward them with something healthy from an early age to help form that habit.
When I feel like I deserve a reward, my mind immediately goes for candy, or a movie. When a salad or taking a walk with my dog is much more rewarding and makes me feel better. We as a society need to stop criticizing people for their apperance, and start encouraging them to be healthy. Obviously, someone can't form permanent habits for anyone but them selves, but one little complement can completely change how a person feels about them selves. I am going to challenge all of you to find someone, and ask them to go on a walk with you. Invite them to dinner, and only serve organic food, or just tell someone they look good. I promise you, it will change their day. It might even change their life.
Thanks for reading!
