Jeopardize

Jeopardise — https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/jeopardize/

Dear friends,

I won’t lie to you, I’m not the easiest person to annoy or agitate. I’m the kid of person who will let things build up until my anger completely explodes onto one person. There are very few things in this world that instantly rile me up, probably because I don’t socialise enough to find situations in life that do annoy me.

That being said, I have found one programme on TV that annoys me every single time I watch it. In the UK the show is called Whitney Fat Girl Dancing. I try not to watch the show but it’s the kind of programme you love and hate at the same time.

I don’t have anything against Whitney for trying to do something about body shaming fat people; because it’s something that all overweight people experience at some point in their lives and something should be done about it. And I do like that she’s concerned about being happy and healthy for the rest of her life.

But what I really, really hate about this show and something that I don’t really have time for is her coming across like she’s full of excuses about doing something to lose the weight. She laughs off and gets defensive when people tell her that she needs to do something about her weight; which is normal for people who are in denial about how bad their health has become. I’ve been in those shoes.

Yes, she has lost 100lbs while on the show, which I completely commend her for because I do know how difficult it is to lose any kind of weight. Yes, I also understand that having PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) doesn’t make it any easier for her.

She has her own TV show, dance class, and has millions of women, including myself, who love her because of how positive she is about her body image; because it seems like she doesn’t care about what other people think of her weight which is something I would love to say that I’m comfortable with.

But how much longer can a thirty-two year old woman keep using PCOS as an excuse to do nothing about her increasing weight? Why isn’t being pre-diabetic enough to scare her into keep loosing weight? When will she take responsibility for the fact that her being overweight is partly her fault and stop jeopardising her health?

Love,

Gennie
