    I personally am a body fascist, only to myself, i am harsher on my levels of fat than i should, it’s a norm for me, as resisting temptation is an ongoing battle, but it’s kept me healthy, and fit, but it’s not something i preach to others, sure i have opinions but thats it, everybody has responsibility for themselves. being happy comes in many forms.
