Recovery is not a number.
Recovery is not a weight.
Recovery is not ‘eating healthy’.
Recovery is not avoiding foods.
Recovery is not constantly counting calories and worrying over the macros.
Recovery is about finding yourself.
Recovery is accepting who you are when your body is happiest.
Recovery is a journey, an adventure.
Recovery is learning to live.
Recovery is a way of life.
Don let your disorder foul you into believing otherwise.
I would rather have my taxes go to every single ‘welfare queen’ in the united states twice over than to drone programs and corporate subsidies.
Diet ideas: Eat whatever you want, and if anyone tries to lecture you about your weight, eat them too.
"The Hunger Games" are real. If you’re familiar with the books and movies, or have at least heard of the "Hunger Games" phenomenon, you’re probably aware that the series tackles some pretty serious issues of poverty and economic inequality that hit way too close to home. If you’re not, here’s some background.
"The Hunger Games" takes place in the fictional world of Panem, which is a dystopian North America sometime in the far off future. All the wealth in the country is concentrated in the Capitol and people in the 12 districts are constantly in fear of starvation. Everything the people in the districts produce, whether it is coal, grain, machinery or clothing, is controlled by the Capitol. People are forbidden to hunt or grow their own food, thus relying on the Capitol’s meager grain and oil rations. To punish the people of Panem for District 13’s rebellion (the Capitol wiped out the region in a nuclear war), each year two teenage tributes from each of the 12 districts must sacrifice their lives in an arena where they fight to the death, with only one victor remaining.
While the story is fictional, it reminds us of a lot of the issues surrounding economic inequality we see today. Some sobering facts:
Nearly all—95%—of the income gains from 2009–2012 have been captured by the wealthiest 1%.
In recent years, the wealthiest 1% have gotten richer and richer, while the median household income is down 8% since 2000.
Wages and salaries now make up the lowest share of national income since 1966, while corporate profits are now the largest share of national income since 1950.
The federal minimum wage, $7.25, hasn’t risen since 2009. The tipped minimum wage, $2.13, hasn’t risen in two decades.
One in 6 people in America are hungry and 1 in 5 children are.
"The Hunger Games" bestseller books and blockbuster films represent a rare opportunity where these issues of social and economic justice are being widely discussed in pop culture and in homes across the United States.
Working families, union members and leaders are joining the online movement to lift up these issues of economic inequality and poverty using the “Hunger Games” as a jumping off point. Check out oddsinourfavor.org, where you can join the “resistance” and post a photo doing the “salute,” the symbol of solidarity of the working people.

when I see cute little kids with hip parents I just think can I have that but in like ten years
If I look up “carrot” in the dictionary, most people will acknowledge I do not know all there is to know about carrots and if I truly want to understand carrots, I should probably pick up a horticultural text book. We know that legal and medical terms are going to be, at best, simplistically represented and know we need to find a lawyer or a doctor if we want to know more. Anyone deciding to base their argument on, say, a philosophical concept or term using the dictionary is going to be laughed at at best, or automatically lose whatever argument they’re trying to make at least.
Yet the minute we move into a social justice framework, the ultimate authority changes. We don’t need lived experience, we don’t need experts who have examined centuries of social disparities and discrimination, we don’t need societal context. We don’t need sociology or history – no, we have THE DICTIONARY! That ultimate tome of oracular insight, the last word on any debate!
It’s patently ridiculous and you can see that by applying it to any other field of knowledge. But the privileged will continually trot out simplistic, twitter-style dictionary definitions as if they are the last word and the ultimate authority. No-one would drag out the dictionary to debate science with a scientist. But they’re more than willing to trot out a dictionary definition of racism over any sociological analysis. A dictionary is not the ultimate authority - they’re a rough guide for you to discover the simple meaning of words you’ve never heard before – not an ultimate definition of what the word means and all its contexts.”

Tis the season for food guilt, health shaming and misinformation memes! Here’s a few tips to deal with the influx of “1 serving of mashed potatoes = 30 minutes of running, 1 piece of pie = 300 burpees” crap you’re seeing today (or will see this weekend).
fuck food shame. I love you, unspecified holiday family member, but if you comment one more time about how much we have to hike to work off “all these extra calories” I will probably just keep eating pie until I explode pie guts all over you and you realise that food and fat are GOOD, not bad.
