Out of curiosity, did your list of things you can do now that you've lost 100 pounds suddenly happened when you hit the 100 pound mark?Like, at 80 pounds down, you weren't feeling them? How about at 50 pounds down? Or did they start to happen almost as soon as you started taking better care of yourself? Congratulations! HAES worked for you.
"I thought we established that you can’t point to things I said in the past because I only live in the present and anything I may have said before today is possible from a parallel timeline, which I am not responsible for."
So now you are kinda sorta admitting that, no, you weren’t a “HAES advocate” as you claimed, but that you read the books, yet you don’t actually understand what was in the books because people promoted an uninformed version of HAES confuse your calorie-deprived brain. Got it.
I love how bit by bit you expose the truth about how you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, but then whine when I quote you back at yourself because that’s not fair… yet it IS fair for you to anonymously quote vague misinformation about HAES you once read somewhere and to represent yourself as a knowledgeable resource on HAES when you have no clue what the fuck you’re talking about.
I can’t wait until you finally graduate from high school and college takes up all your free time so you won’t spend days on end blathering about shit you don’t understand.
Except that’s not what you’re doing. You’re just linking random things without actually giving them context, and what’s more the things you link don’t actually demonstrate me saying anything to the contrary.
And no, I was a HAES advocate. I was all “listen to your body!” and “Calorie counting is harmful!” and “You can be healthy at any size!”, ALL OF WHICH ARE BLATANTLY FALSE.
It’s hysterical that you think you’re somehow “exposing” the truth when in reality my message hasn’t changed from then until now even a little.
FYI I’m in college.
So, wait, are you in college or do you "work in computer science"? Or is it both, and yet you somehow have free time to rack up a ridiculous amount of posts about fat people on Tumblr like a high schooler with no life?
I’m also enjoying how you’re whining about context when the links I’ve included will take people to the FULL CONTEXT of the conversation I’m referring to. People who cry “out of context” are just trying to wriggle their way free of bullshit they’ve said before. Click the link, read the context, see what a fucking moron you are.
I mean, what the fuck does this even mean? “The fact that if I never followed HAES it makes you more right doesn’t magically make it so I never read any of those books.” The shit you are saying about HAES is not in any of the HAES books you claim to have read. This is because you clearly haven’t read about HAES and you base it on vague assumptions you make from what people on Tumblr say. As I said in that post I linked to:
If I had followed HAES that wouldn’t have happened because I would have continued eating tons of food because my body “said” I needed it. I calorie count and keep protein macros and I eat well below my BMR and have since the beginning (in fact my intake hasn’t really moved except to compensate for large amounts of cycling >20 miles), that’s not HAES. The first month was hell because I was hungry almost all the time.
And yeah a lot of that shit only happened 30 lbs ago and not having random diarrhea happened in the last 10, because thin bodies are easier to move than fat ones.
As a matter of fact I’d love to see you try to do serious weight-bearing exercise for 2-3 hours at a time and see how you feel afterwards. Gravity is less of a thing in water.
Okay, so let me get this straight: it doesn’t matter what the actual teachings of HAES are because there are people out there who don’t understand it and you want to debate what THEY say, not what I’m saying or what Linda Bacon has said, right? That’s what your asker said we were being “unreasonable” about. I’m sorry, but acting like the definition of HAES is determined by what the least educated proponents are saying is absolutely fucking ridiculous. If someone says, “I believe in evolution” and gets into a debate with a Creationist, then if that person starts spouting some of the many, MANY misconceptions on the subject, does that mean that the theory of evolution is bullshit? Or does it mean that the person making the shit arguments is full of shit? Certainly the Creationist might feel like they’ve defeated the theory of evolution once and for all, but what matters is the actual teaching of evolution, not what some poorly informed person thinks it is.
To paraphrase your claims about the authority of HAES, ” Since evolution has no governing body, there is no “one” evolution, and unfortunately the popular one means ‘a planet where men evolved from apes.’”.
The only reason you continue this embarrassing charade is:
- Your anonymity allows you to make any claims you want about who you are, what you’ve read and what you know about HAES
- You’re a high school kid who thinks you’re fooling people into thinking you’re a college student/computer science employee who is smarter than any and all fat people.
- You have a compulsive desire to “prove” fat people wrong and are convinced that if you continue down this route you will either shame us or outsmart us into agreeing with your childish opinions.
The internet is a wonderful thing, but damn I wish dipshits like you never found out about it sometimes.
