Even though we are all aware that the difference between encouraging a loved one to embrace healthy habits and shaming them for the look of their body is huge, the line between the two can be thin at times, so people sometimes feel offended, even if your intentions were good.
Making assumptions about someone’s health based on how their body looks, however, is very, very inappropriate and plain wrong. Problems can occur, though, when a family member or a loved one asks for support with their health and weight loss goals, and providing loving motivation without perpetuating toxic attitudes about exercise is very, very hard.
In a recent and very popular AITA post on the subreddit, a dad asked if he’s in the wrong for offering to motivate his daughter’s weight loss goals with cash.
Many people suggested that diet is actually more important that excercise, so the dad posted an update.
The post gained a lot of attention, and the opinions of people were divided. What most people suggested, however, is that maybe giving his daughter money is not the best approach, and that the daughter should focus on her diet more rather than exercise. Others even agreed with the dad, and jokingly asked if they could get money to go to the gym.
