Yep, Bravo has a new TV Show called Thintervention with Jackie Warner (she had her own reality show before) leading it.

Honestly when I first saw the title, I thought it might be an intervention show about anorexics, I was horrified to see what the show was really about. That said, I am not ever going to watch it.

Well...that sounds...interesting (not...)
I can't believe they would...oh, wait, yes, I can totally believe that they would come up with something like that to get people watching their channel...
Nothing against Bravo themselves, just TV shows like that...

I admittedly just watched approximately 3 minutes through the introduction of the first episode, and was so infuriated I had to turn it off. This show is pretty much the embodiment with everything wrong with Western society's preoccupation with weight and size.

Example, one of the men said "I have no problem approaching women, I'm likely to engage the hottest girl there, but when it comes to the end of the night and sealing the deal it's a no go because of the way I look. I wake up everyday lonely because of it."

It's not even like this man is morbidly obese, or even obese. I mean I'm just speechless. There's so much I want to say that I can't organize the thoughts in my head. It's such a disgusting display of internalized "sizeism." I want to shake these people and scream at them in the faces: "Why are you eating this bullshit you're being fed!? And why are you participating in spraying your self hatred all over so others can learn to hate themselves too?"

:soapbox:

I guess all we can do is rise above it. Not praticipate in fat or diet talks. Not go to unhealthy sites, read unhealthy books, or look at unhealthy figures. We can buy brands that promote health. We can control our own actions. Maybe one day this REVOLUTION that many of us are in will catch on?

oh, It's actually quite right to be angry, don't get me wrong. But what do we do with this anger? How can we change even our own little world for the better?

indeed.


I just looked at the link. I can't believe it. It's sickening because you can imagine a board room of rich 30 somethings with their leather orange skin and armani suits trawling through the internet looking for buzz words related to weight. 'thinspiration' 'thintervention'........ it's disgusting because if you are losing weight because you're out of the healthy BMI range, the goal is not to get 'thin', the goal should be to make your body healthy!

*hmmmmmmm* We are SOOO above it guys. We don't have to participate.

This show and BRIDALPLASTY (starts in a month or so I believe) are horrible, horrible wastes and horrible. horrible influences on the world.

*Facepalm*!

I foolishly continued reading the article/site and it displayed their journals with details of foods eaten and calorie amounts... my gosh, their supposedly admirable diets are (frighteningly) reminiscent of how I ate when I had anorexia!

WHAT THE HELL, some of them are on starvation diets, no joke! One serving of carbs per day? My nutritionist would scream!
