Fit to Fat to Fit. Are you kidding me?

There is a new series that is supposed to give fitness trainers a glimpse into the world of those of us that have a difficult time losing weight. I find myself perplexed. On the one hand, I am thrilled that trainers will understand why we do not come to gyms. On the other hand, I don’t know if such a short time will understand, truly, what it is like to deal with the social-emotional toils of being a person of weight. I wonder, if it will make them more likely to judge when one does not lose weight because I have never been “celebrated” for being thin or fit. It makes me wonder if this simply exploits the pain of the struggle. My hope is, that people in this profession, will stop discriminating toward people of weight. That is all we can ask for, I guess?
