No matter how positive the intention behind it.
I have lost weight: I weight nearly two stone less than I did pre-knee surgery.
But that’s because I’ve lost most of my muscle tone, which has in turn turned to fat, which weighs significantly less.
So, yes, I have technically “lost weight”, and I’m pretty damn upset about it.
Give me back my weights, my resistance training, my medicine balls, my kettlebells, my boxing gloves, my derby gear – and I will put all that weight back on and then some more.
And I will start kicking the asses of people who say “you look so good, you’ve lost weight!”Tags: fat, feminism, fitness, insults, my physio is awesome, sexism, size, sport, still no exercises am sad, suck it, surgery, training, unpopular opinion, weight, women
