It's Health at Any Size, not Healthy at Any Size - which means that anyone, no matter what their current weight can strive to be more healthy, i.e there is no lost cause. It's been distorted to mean that anyone at any size can be healthy.

I don't buy into any of it, its the brain child of a couple overweight people to justify an unhealthy lifestyle.
That being said fat shaming and anything similar, is disgusting and should not be accepted any less than sexism or racism. In many cases we do not know what has caused the weight gain aside from ones laziness, mental/physical health are usually major factors.
These kinds of movements never highlight the dangers of being fat or overweight, just the beauty of it?? I'd like them to explain the beauty in later life complications due to strain that they have put there vital organs under for decades.

Someone should be accepted and should be "okay", no matter the number on the scale. Overweight is beautiful too because everyone in the body they are in is beautiful.
The shame I felt when I was overweight and how horrible I felt about myself and knowing how society viewed me....made it harder for me to make the healthy changes I needed to make in order to lose weight. Shaming as a motivational tool is often one of the least effective.
Whenever the Fat Acceptance comes up on here, it usually goes the same way. Fat shaming is wrong, but let me go on and explain why this version of fat shaming that I agree with is okay because I believe that if people love and accept themselves as they are...that we are encouraging people being fat.
