This article is the most misleading pile of shit that I have read in a very long time.

 

Actually, that's not true. this sort of thing is becoming more and more representative of online journo hacks.

I dont really see an issue with removing the scales. The scales are in a gym, now they're not in a gym, people are still going to the gym. so obviously the lack of scales doesnt mean gym-goers are encouraged to sit at home instead and be lazy.

I know from watching a friend drop 70 lbs in a year that she occassionally hits a weight plateau and stops losing weight and the scale really discourages her at this point. And it isnt because she isnt making progress, it is because she is gaining muscle mass so the scale doesnt tell a truthful story. In her mind pounds equate to fat but this just isnt true.

How one looks and feels is the true story, not what the scales say.

Also there are so many reasons for the obesity epidemic in the US - lack of nutritional education, lack of cooking skills, lack of time to cook, geographic proximity to a grocery store vs fast food restaurants (see food deserts), budget considerations, mental health, etc. I really dont think people are obese simply because we arent making them feel bad enough about themselves..

I don't need to try that. I eat right and exercise regularly.

 

Every person i know who is fat doesn't do shit about it.

 

So lazy, yep most definitely.

You don't gain a extra hundred pounds in 2 weeks, just like you wont loose it in two weeks.

 

Make a intelligent decision towards a lifestyle change, not a diet, and you'll never have to worry about weight problems.

 

Yes it requires work. Something some people just don't want to work at.

Shaming is never the answer, and our so-called obesity epidemic has largely been debunked. We changed the way obesity was defined and also got older--and as most people know, you tend to gain a little weight when you get older. Plus, a demographic shift has led to more black and Latino populations, who are, naturally, when compared to white people, larger. 

 

People who are overweight know they are overweight, and calling them fat or taking away scales won't change that. But encouraging fat shaming in the name of health is like encouraging racism in the name of homogeny. 

LOL.

I have been shamed for being somewhat slim. I need a safe space. Can I have my own gym where I won't be slim shamed?
