We are approaching the start of a brand new year, and while many people (especially women) are making New Year Resolutions to lose weight and get in shape, I want to challenge you to do something a little differently in 2014. I want you to Fight Fat Talk. Sure, work on losing that weight and getting into shape – but let’s do it in a positive way, and put an end to the craziness that is Fat Talk!
I’m not the only one who realizes how important it is to SHHHHHUT down Fat Talk! Tyra Banks has teamed up with Special K to help shift the conversation about weight loss and weight management to a more positive one.
“I know firsthand how much criticizing your body negatively affects self-esteem, but as a role model, I try to maintain a positive attitude and healthy approach to managing my weight,” says Banks. “That’s why I’m excited to partner with Special K to help empower women to not only feel confident about their bodies, but also to remove those negative thoughts and show them how to employ tips and tricks to make their least liked physical attributes look better.”
I think this initiative is so important because Fat Talk is so ingrained in our culture that we may do it without even realizing it! I used the Fat Talk finder search tool on the Fight Fat Talk website and found that 4 friends recently engaged in Fat Talk on Facebook – in the last week alone! Considering that 93% of women engage in Fat Talk, I shouldn’t be surprised…but I am still disappointed.
The plain and simple truth is that Fat Talk weighs all women down, and we need to put an end to it. Whether you’re the one starting the Fat Talk, or engaging in it, it is time to put an end to it. Don’t engage. Shhhhut it down!
Special K recently conducted a “SHHHH” shopping experience to show shoppers what it looks like when they engage in Fat Talk. Check out the video to see what a powerful impact this experience had on these ladies; it really is an eye opening experience!
It’s time to shut down the Fat Talk. You can find out more about fighting Fat Talk and embracing weight loss and weight management in a positive way on FightFatTalk.com.
