or AKA Tweef! AKA VienDammage breaks the internet, again.
hot water over some comments made on the ol' internets. Richman has lost 70 pounds since his days as host of a show that finds him taking on local eating challenges and is living a new, healthier lifestyle. Like anyone proud of themselves, Richman posted something bragging about his weight loss but tagged it "Thinspiration" and people took offense, he didn't help himself by telling people to go kill themselves. His new show is now on hiatus. Thinspo, I think, is some movement of knobby kneed, insecure women who post about how no meal is as good as being skinny or better skinny and hungry than fat, etc. It's a two way street when it comes to weight these days. If you're skinny or fat and happy, who cares. If you're either of those and unhappy, well, here comes the boom boom boom. As a former chubby kid, it literally boils down to personal will and education. Want to lose weight? Make better eating choices and be more active. It's really that simple. If your weight doesn't define you then even better, keep living like a rational adult and forget about these first world problems. End of the day nobody's going to do it for you so if you're unhappy, do something about it. Dammaged Goods does not support thinspirational but I do advocate ripspiration as getting in shape is equal parts physical and mental. Remember what Jack LaLanne said, Nutrition is Queen and Fitness is King, together they form a Kingdom. Of Ripspiration! And you know what's really cool? Being cool with yourself!
A friend told me I broke the internet once when I asked a rude user where they lived and if they wanted to meet and say things to my face. That person never responded again. But hey, if you won't say it, don't type it. #EndCyberBullying. With my Twitter victory, I'll go ahead and say I broke the internet one more time. See ya later and stay positive.
