I've body shamed myself a time or two.
( It worked too. )
I put a handwritten note to myself on the refrigerator door that was rather motivating (and insulting) that had me closing the refrigerator door and then going to the gym.
That being said, there's no reason to call out anyone over their appearance.
Most everyone has a demon or two, some are just more obvious to the naked eye than others.

Yes--fat acceptance is a good thing. The people who are able to achieve total fat acceptance in their minds are my heros. The vast majority of people who attempt to lose weight end up gaining it back, so to feel good in your own body no matter what your size is important. Your body does everything for you, so why not love it as-is? Fat people get so much hate and it has nothing to do with the moving target called "health".
Why am I here, then? Because people are judgemental (lol, look at the comments in this thread alone). I'm losing so that I can one day avoid negative judgment from fatphobic people (and, whew! There are *a lot* and not all of them are thin). I love fat people--we are awesome and we do what we can to survive in a hostile world. If I could live somewhere without all the hate and negativity regarding body size, I would be content to stay fat. I'm choosing to lose so I have one less target on my back--and because it's the only thing I can change about me so that people can see *me* and not the body. In all likelihood I'll gain back whatever I lose, but for now I'm trying again. This will probably be the last time I do this. If I "fail", so what? No matter what happens I'll come out of this stronger than I am now.
