Sabotaging Thought: Why should I do this instead of loving myself and my body and eat whatever I want, and not caring about those who call me overweight?

Response: It’s absolutely true that I shouldn’t care what other people call me and I shouldn’t lose weight for other people. It’s also absolutely true that I should love myself at any size and not base my worth on my weight. BUT, these things don’t mean that I shouldn’t work on losing weight, not if my weight is getting in the way of some of MY goals for MYSELF (being healthier, having the ability to take part in any physical or recreational activity I choose, etc.)
