I am absolutely horrified by this article on the newest weight loss fad! A TONGUE Patch! A piece of plastic that is sewn onto the tongue to render the victim (Dieter) unable to eat solid food.
The patch can be worn for a maximum of one month, because after more than a month it starts to become incorporated into the tongue. And there are powerful side effects — patients can experience speech difficulties, while others have trouble sleeping. Some complain that in the beginning, after the patch is initially sewn on, it’s too painful to even move your tongue.
What is the obsession in our society for weight loss that such an extreme measure would be taken by willing participants? What possesses a person to torture themselves in the name of “beauty”? barded with images of “healthy”!
I can relate to some of the obsession. I had a very unhealthy relationship with food that started when I was 17 and went through out my 20's. I am blessed to say, I was healed from it. It is wonderous when you can see that the food God put on this earth, is all we need! Fruits, veggies, and untampered with meats!! (Think Garden of Eden).......It is not how you look on the outside! When you are eating healthy, you will look just how you were born too and feel amazing!! It is the inside that counts and Food is Fuel for the body! Be healthy, eat the right foods, get excersice and live well!
Comparisson can KILL you. Your healthy may not look like someone else's or the cover of a magazine but remember you were not supose to look like that! Don't harm your body to look like someone else, it could cost you your body! This stuff is dangerous!
Is it possible to be healthy and have some body fat? Yes! Are your views of the healthy body image distored?
Slowly a revolution is coming! Women are recognizing that Strong is the new sexy! We need to empower ourselves and women everywhere!
