You may think that congratulating someone with weight loss is harmless and inspiring, but it is not. Believe us, sometimes you commentaries about someone's body size and appearance may only hurt.
Health problems, depression and the lack of appetite can cause people to lose weight. However, even if a woman works hard to slim down, it is not appropriate to praise her for the way she looks.
Stop thinking that loss of weight will make you happier, as it can result in unhealthy fixations on body size. Most people think that being slim automatically equate to being healthy, but that is wrong opinion.
It is impossible to look at someone and determine his state of health
The assumption that “skinny people are healthier” is not always true. There are plenty of reasons why a person may lose or gain weight such as, hormonal changes, eating disorders, medication and so on.
People shouldn’t comment a weight loss or weight gain, as it may trigger disorders and insecurity. So if you think that you need to drop some extra pounds and start a diet, you should understand something important first.
You are beautiful just as you are. You are a unique person, talented and appealing, with special power, with inner wisdom and creativity — a human being of value. It is time to accept and respect yourself now. Get comfortable with your appearance.
Accept your body size and figure and love yourself unconditionally
Respect yourself, your personal traits and your achievements. Stop pressuring people into losing weight! Stop commenting other people’s bodies and stop forcing them to change the way they look.
There are so many things you can praise people without making it all about their figure. You can be supportive without trying to force people to slim down. If you see that a person looks good, tell her that she looks awesome. Every person has a right to be happy, no matter of her body size and appearance.
