I Hate Fat People For Making Me Do This

I know, I know.. Another blog post about Katie Hopkins. And yes, I know I shouldn't be giving her any more attention but I am sorry I can not sit back and let her talk her absolute nonsense knowing that her words and actions are damaging.

So - Today Katie Hopkins gave her first TV interview on This Morning since gaining just over 3.5 stone for a new TV documentary she is recording. Apparently the idea is that she is going to show how you gain weight and how easy it is to lose it. She wants people to stop making excuses about their weight and lose it just as easy as she is supposedly going to from the 8th September.




On the sofa Katie did look bigger, but then when you gain 3.5 stone that is to be expected. However, in my opinion the whole interview was like a one woman pantomime! She was breathless when she talked and held her hip as she sat, like sitting on a sofa was so hard for her now she is fat. (She is in the region of 11 stone now)... I can assure you that as someone who weighs quite a bit more than Katie - sitting on a sofa and having a conversation does not make me breathless. We can see that she looks fatter, she does not need to put on over exaggerated symptoms to show 'how hard' life as a fat person is!


Thanks to http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/09/01/katie-hopkins-this-morning-weight-gain-three-stone_n_5746866.html?utm_hp_ref=uk-entertainment&ir=UK+Entertainment
In a clip from the TV show, she cried about how much she had eaten in one day (apparently 6500 calories a day) she said "I hate fat people for making me do this", however I can assure that the feeling is quite mutual. 

Fat people did not make her accept money for making a documentary on fat people, we did not make her eat more than normal and gain weight on purpose nor will we make her need to lose it. Fat people did not ask her to go on a one woman crusade to 'educate' us into changing our bodies or to sit on TV and tell us that our bodies are incapable of good. 

Katies TV show is about not making excuses for being fat, but it is people like her that make fat people feel that they need to make excuses for their body. It can be hard living as a fat person in a thin world. It can be even harder to live in a fat body and say "I love by body just how it is and I do not want to change it". 

Instead people like Katie Hopkins make people feel like we need to excuse our bodies for being how they are - so people turn to health excuses, making sure people know that even though they're fat they eat well or exercise lots, they're fat because of stress or they're going to start a diet next week and lose all the extra weight they now have.


The truth is that if you're fat, THAT IS OK! 

You shouldn't have to feel like you need to reassure people about your life choices or let them know you intend to change it. It is programs like this and the general media pressure to have a small body that make people think that they need to excuse their body - BUT YOU DO NOT!!


Love the skin you're in and let others know you love it to. It is your body and you do not need to excuse it away!

  2. I can sort of understand why her body aches - she did put on about 50% of her body weight, again, in quite a short space of time. Can imagine it was a bit of a shock to her muscles and whatnot.

    Still not a fan of hers though.

  3. I am so angry that a production company would fund this vile woman to do a show about anything, but this is just the worse thing she could do!

    I read an article about it the other day in which she stated that she was going to go from being underweight to obese and back again. Firstly that pissed me off, she's underweight to start with which has just as many health implications attached to it as being overweight, yet this is supposedly not an issue for her or anybody else.

    Secondly, how on earth can she prove anything to anybody by doing this, other than the fact that her body can gain and lose weight quickly! She isn't in anybody else's body, how her body respond is different to how yours, mine or anybody else's would! Plus it will not take into account the social factors relating to weight loss, whether somebody can afford to buy tasty healthy ingredients, whether they posses the intelligence and skills to make tasty low calorie food, whether they can afford to go to the gym, get a personal trainer, whether they have the time for exercise due to the hours they work and family commitments etc etc.

    And to add insult to injury, to then blame fat people for making her do this!!!!!! She chose to do it in attempt to make money, get more publicity and ultimately shame any fat person out there who remains fat!

  4. Small bit of sweet revenge, if she is obese it will be far tougher to keep off the weight if she does lose it. I'm not really sure where this vile excuse for a woman crawled out of but I wish they'd put her back in.

  5. I hope it takes her much longer to lose the weight than it did to put it on, as in years! x

  6. Seriously this woman is beyond help. The things she does for attention is beyond me. She may well be in pain I mean she has increased her weight in such a dramatic manner. I more peeved at the ones funding her programme. It's a form of discremimation and should be treated as such.

  7. I think it's a good idea to be honest. Absolutely no excuse to be overweight except laziness.

    1. The whole point of my post is that excuses are not needed. Whatever the reasons for being fat (laziness, lack of knowledge about food, illness, choice) there is no need for us to justify that to others. x
