I was walking along the river the other day when two cyclists rode past talking scornfully about somebody they knew,
"She rode ten minutes. Ten minutes isn’t a bike ride."
Well, fuck you, Judgy Judgersons. If you get on a bike, I don’t care if you just go to the end of the block to get a pack of smokes, it’s a bike ride. Maybe the woman could only ride ten minutes because her arthritis was kicking up or she had a heart problem or a cold. Maybe she needed a break from her day and took a little spin. Maybe she only wanted to ride ten minutes. Maybe people shouldn’t shame anyone for their limitations and/or preferences. Exercise should be about having fun and listening to your body, whether it says “yay! Go ten more miles!” or “um, that’s enough. Stop.” And whatever you enjoy and whatever your body tells you, it’s nobody’s business but your own.

Tell me something.
When was the last time you opened up your browser and saw a beautiful image of a body shape that looked just like yours?
When was the last time you saw an image of skin markings that looked just like yours?
When was the last time you saw an image of breasts that looked just like yours? An ass that looked just like yours? Scars that looked just like yours? A belly that looked just like yours?
1. I will eat whatever I want
2. I will eat as much as I want, whenever I want, from now til the end of time
3. I will accept being ravenous
