I'm just wandering what y'all think of the Fat Acceptance Movement (FAM)? It's come to my attention after reading some blogs, and to be honest I'm not quite sure what I think of it. On the one hand, I've heard many successful losers and maintainers say that it's important to like yourself when you're fat in order to really appreciate your progress and be happy with yourself as you slim down. On the other hand there's the argument that accepting fat makes one complacent and reduces the desire to change.
So what do we think about FAM? Good or bad? Pick a poll option and let me hear your thoughts below!
I do feel there is rather a mixed message here. It is very important to like yourself because that will have such a great affect on the ability to lose weight..but hating the fact of being overweight is entirely different.

I think it's important that someone should, ideally, have the self-esteem accept and love themselves, but I've read some "fat acceptance" blogs and I think they tend to indulge in delusion, like that militant baker one.
Accepting yourself doesn't mean you shouldn't try to change. That's just what I think anyway.
