So I’m sure while everybody else was wondering who the heck is Mary Jane’s maintenance man I was inspired by the the first 6 minutes of Being Mary Jane Season 2 Episode 3. The opening focused on Mary Jane’s Niece Niecy and it touched on the subject of being Thick vs. Overweight. Yes I’m “thick” and Yes i’m saying it, I AGREE with Mary Jane. Let’s review the script shall we.
Mary Jane: This conversation is about your health, about Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure
Niecy: I am Healthy, I’m just Thick!
Mary Jane: No no no, Do not get me started on the whole, I’m thick conversation!
Niecy: Oh please get started, please.
Mary Jane: Ok, Why does every overweight black woman in the hood (shade) think she’s thick? We don’t eat well, we don’t exercise, and then we justify our diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure by saying I was born this way, God made me 60lbs overweight, and you know what, it’s all fun and games until you lose a foot at 40 from diabetes messing around trying to be an a** model on Instagram, ain’t nobody gonna call ya thick when you got three toes left.
This was a mouthful and it was tight but it’s right. I love this episode and it’s truth. Am I fat shaming, no, but us “thick” girls have got to come to the realization that yes we are beautiful but at 5 foot 6 inches tall and a size 22+ is not thick but it’s a heart attack and health issues lying dormant waiting to happen. We sugarcoat and pussy foot around the issue day in and day out thinking, because we can dress it up with a fitted dress, some make up and a bad shoe that it’s ok, not so! Our HEALTH is at stake!
I bet a few of you are most likely focusing on the fact that it’s a thin person telling Niecy that she needs to lose weight. Well how about this, I’m a “thick” Full Figured Fabulous and on the way to FIT person saying it’s time to lose some weight. I know I know You look good, but can’t you walk up them stairs? But we have plus size stores, aren’t you tired of putting on that squeam and waist cincher and having it cut into your skin and about to pass out because you can’t breathe? If we get healthy these won’t even be a factor! Even better if we lose weight we’ll be at less of a risk of heart disease, high cholesterol and diabetes. I’m not saying I’m just saying! I’m just telling the Truth and shaming the devil. In the mean time I’m working on it. Ok, I’m done.
Let me know what do you think, I’m a big girl I can handle it.
