4th and 5th rubbed me in a wrong way. I don't see the point to put down a whole group of people to motivate/make oneself feel better. But I have to say I loved the last one! Briliant!

Each of the pictures is in effect putting down a group of people:
1) Those that don't work
2) Those that don't move
3) Those that don't eat clean, train mean, and aren't lean
4) Procrastinators!
5) Those with fat stomachs

etc.

Some don't want to be lazy - so there is pro-exercise one for them
Some don't want to be skinny - so there's a pro-fitness one for them
Some don't want to be fat - so there's a pro-healthy eating one for them

If you want to be fat then fine, ignore the posters that motivate those that don't want to be fat
If you want to be skinny then fine, ignore the posters that motivate those that don't want to be skinny

But why is skinny and fit mutually exclusive here? All this "Fit is the new skinny" "Skinny looks good in clothes, fit looks good naked" "I want to be fit and healthy not skinny" .. all of this imply that you have to be one or another. are yoga teachers or rock climbers or long distance runners not fit and healthy? They are and yet they are skinny. That's why I said that it rubbs me in a wrong way. Why can't it be profitness yet not bashing thin people?

They're not mutually exclusive, the point it's making is that one should aspire to be fit, not skinny.

"Fit is the new skinny" is born from the realisation that it is no longer wise to promote 'skinny' as being a sensble goal. It isn't a yoga teachers goal to be skinny, it's to be fit, healthy and supple. It isn't a rock climbers goal to be skinny, it's to be strong, fit, athletic, powerful and flexible. It isn't a long distance runner's goal to be skinny, it's to be fit, have endurance, and have a lean phisique.

It's not bashing skinny people,, it's bashing people whose sole aim is to be skinny regardless of anything else. That's not a healthy goal.

Exactly. It's not that people say skinny is bad. "All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are square" remember that saying from elementary school? You can be fit, healthy, and skinny, but being skinny doesn't mean you are fit, and can often mean you are unhealthy.

Thanks for the motivational pictures :) Needed them this morning!!

Not only that but, just because your skinny, doesnt mean your fit! My Step-Sister isnt fat and has been skinny for most of her life and she will be the FIRST to tell you that she is far from fit and is SO FAR from being in shape!

Aspring to be skinny can sometimes lead to those with Eating Disorders as well. It is mainly saying that you should look at being healthy and not just skinny. Being fit and healthy will LEAD to being "skinny" for YOU!!

Not stereotyping myself but, I KNOW if I am Skinny, I wont look right because of my broad stature...but, being healthy and fit I will look amazing!
