Since dedicating myself to getting into “superhero shape,” several articles regarding my weight have been brought to my attention. Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met, eating sprouted grains I can’t pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5’3” frame. Losing 14 pounds out of necessity in order to live a healthier life is a huge victory. I’m a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I’d have to part with both arms. And a foot. I’m frustrated with the irresponsibility of tabloid media who sell the public ideas about what we should look like and how we should get there.

It always bothers me when I see people try to back up their body policing with health concerns. Other peoples' health is none of your business. When you see people outside do you harass them about wearing sunblock? No, it's none of your business. When you see couples holding hands in public do you harass them about safe sex? No, it's none of your business. The size and weight you perceive others to be isn't anyone's business. Other peoples' health isn't anyone else's business.

Yepppp.

Also, can I just say that most of this “health policing” is just repackaged fat shaming?

I talk about never exercising and eating unhealthy food in excess and drinking and overworking myself ALL THE TIME, and you know how many people have approached me about with “concern about my health”?

Zero.

Could that maybe be because I’m thin? (Answer: YES.)

People don’t care about my “health” because they don’t actually care about health at all. They care about fat.

They pretend that they care about health, but it’s funny how they only care about health when they’re talking to people of size.

I’D LIKE TO MORPH INTO WHATEVER BODY’S IN BETWEEN YOU TWO

 Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Bend forward at the hips so the torso is at parallel to the ground, holding a pair of dumbbells straight down with palms facing in. Next, with elbows slightly bent, raise the dumbbells out the side so that the elbows extend above the shoulders. Return to starting position.

Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.

Seriously, watch the entire thing.

Impressive, inspirational.. she kicks ass.

This may be the most impressive thing I’ve seen in a while. Great strength, great gymnastic ability.
