Takk Ísland!

Fyrir viku lauk herferðinni Fyrir hvað stendur þú? sem hrundið var af stað  í tilefni Megrunarlausa dagsins 6. maí. Alls tóku tæplega 200 manns á öllum aldri þátt í herferðinni með því að senda inn myndir af sjálfum sér ásamt jákvæðum skilaboðum um útlit og heilsu og enn fleiri studdu átakið með hvatningarorðum. Eins og albúmið sýnir voru  myndirnar og skilaboðin sem fylgdu bæði falleg og áhrifamikil og verða ævarandi áminning um að saman getum við breytt útlits- og þyngdaráherslum samfélagsins ef við viljum. Við erum ótrúlega þakklát öllu því frábæra fólki  sem lagði okkur lið og vorum djúpt snortin af þessari gríðarmiklu þátttöku. Það er greinilegt að sífellt fleiri eru að vakna til vitundar um mikilvægi þess að lifa í sátt við sjálfan sig og hægt sé að hlúa að heilsu og vellíðan án þess að hafa þyngdina sem útgangspunkt.

Við gerum okkur þó grein fyrir því að ekki eru allir  sammála okkur og fengum ýmiskonar gagnrýni á meðan á átakinu stóð. Við erum ekkert að stressa okkur á því að fólk hafi aðrar skoðanir á þessum málum en við – sú staðreynd að önnur viðhorf en þau sem við hvetjum til eru ríkjandi í samfélaginu er einmitt ástæðan fyrir því að við stöndum í þessari baráttu. En verra þykir okkur þegar fólk er ósammála okkur vegna misskilnings og þess vegna langar okkur að svara fyrir nokkra gagnrýnispunkta:

1. Það eru ekki nógu margir feitir í herferðinni

Sumum fannst asnalegt að mikið af fólki, sem virtist vera í kjörþyngd, tæki þátt í átakinu en staðreyndin er að við gerðum allt sem í okkar valdi stóð til þess að fá fólk af öllum stærðum og gerðum til að vera með. Það að fólk í þéttari kantinum hafi verið í minnihluta þeirra sem sendu inn myndir staðfestir bara hve margir upplifa óöryggi og skömm yfir líkama sínum – sem er akkúrat það sem við erum að reyna að breyta með þessari baráttu. Við heyrðum sannarlega í nokkrum sem vildu vera með en voru feimnir við að koma fram af ótta við gagnrýni vegna stærðar sinnar.

2. Grannt fólk á ekki erindi í þessa baráttu

Það er einfaldlega ekki hægt að vera í réttri stærð fyrir þennan málstað. Ef þú ert grannvaxin þá færðu að heyra að þú vitir ekkert hvað þú ert að tala um af því þú ert ekki feit. Ef þú ert feit þá færðu að heyra að þú sért bara að reyna að réttlæta tilvist þína af því þig skortir viljastyrk til að grennast. Þau viðhorf sem við tölum fyrir eru ögrandi og því er reynt að kveða þau niður með því að gera fólkið sem talar fyrir þeim ómarktækt. Staðreyndin er að ríkjandi þyngdaráherslur meiða alla. Þegar við dæmum fólk á grundvelli holdafars þá eru allir gagnrýndir nema þeir sem falla inn í þann þrönga flokk sem við höfum skilgreint sem „norm“ eða „fegurð“ eða whatever. Við erum allskonar og því tapa allir ef fjölbreytileikinn er ekki virtur. Allir hafa fitu, bara í mismiklum mæli , en flestir hafa nóg til að hafa komplexa yfir því. Það er því öllum í hag að hugmyndir um þóknanlega líkama séu víkkaðar út.

3. Við hvetjum til offitu

Með því að hvetja til virðingar gagnvart öllum líkömum erum við ekki að gera annað en að skapa fólki af öllum stærðum og gerðum viðunandi lífsskilyrði. Við erum ekki að hvetja til þess að fólk lifi óheilbrigðu lífi og lítum ekki á það sem hluta af líkamsvirðingu að hunsa  þörf líkamans fyrir holla næringu og hreyfingu. Við viljum bara ekki senda þessi skilaboð út í nafni þyngdarstjórnunar því þá erum við að styrkja það félagslega flokkunarkerfi á grundvelli holdafars sem við teljum að sé skaðlegt. Offita hefur verið litin hornauga á Vesturlöndum alla 20. öldina en ekki hefur það stuðlað að grennri vexti. Hvernig stendur á því að við ríghöldum í þá hugmynd að þessi viðhorf verji okkur gegn offitu? Rannsóknir sýna að ungmenni sem hafa jákvætt viðhorf til líkama síns hugsa betur um hann og sömuleiðis sýna rannsóknir að fitufordómar, skömm og neikvæð líkamsmynd eru mörgum hindrun í því að hreyfa sig. Það er ekkert sem bendir til þess að það sé hættulegt að lifa með reisn og þykja vænt um líkama sinn en margt bendir til þess að fordómar og líkamskomplexar vinni gegn heilbrigðu lífi.

4. Við hvetjum til ofáts

Þetta er eflaust algengasti misskilningurinn varðandi megrunarlausa daginn og undirstrikar rækilega það truflaða viðhorf sem við höfum til matar. Ef við erum ekki í megrun þá hljótum við að vera í ofáti. Svona hugsa aðeins þeir sem hafa tapað eðlilegum tengslum sínum við mat og matarlyst. Lítil börn eru ekki í megrun, þau hafa ekki áhyggjur af kaloríum eða fitu, þau nærast þegar þau eru svöng og vilja ekki meir þegar þau eru orðin södd. Þetta heitir eðlilegt samband við mat og það er þetta sem við viljum koma áleiðis. Ekki láta hræðsluáróður, megrunarþráhyggju, samviskubit eða hugsunarlaust ofát stýra því hvernig þú borðar. Lærðu að hlusta á líkama þinn, taka eftir því hvað fer vel í þig og hvað ekki, hvernig þér líður af matnum sem þú borðar, hvenær þú þarft að næra þig og hvenær þú hefur fengið nóg. Gerðu þetta allt án dómhörku og lærðu á líkama þinn af forvitni. Þannig myndar þú ástríkt og uppbyggilegt samband við líkama þinn sem er laust við togstreitu, ofurstjórn og stjórnleysi.

  • Thanks for giving your ideas on this blog. Furthermore, a delusion regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosure is that the loan company will not have my repayments. There is a degree of time that the bank will take payments in some places. If you are as well deep inside hole, they will commonly call that you pay the actual payment completely. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of repayments at all. In the event you and the financial institution can manage to work something out, this foreclosure course of action may cease. However, if you ever continue to miss payments underneath the new system, the property foreclosures process can pick up from where it was left off.
