Take the above slogan, “Don’t stop until you’re proud.” It originally appeared on this fitspiration photo.

don’t stop until you’re proud

ReEmbody writes: “It’s the “don’t stop” part … that earns this photo its place on my shit list. The message here is that it’s excusable, nay, it is advisable that the ladies in the audience disregard whatever else they were doing, you know, like having some self-esteem, and do whatever it takes to be f*ckable. If it was explicit that “don’t stop” meant “hire a professional lighting crew and a makeup artist and maybe a wizard” it would be one thing, but it’s not. “Don’t stop” just ends up meaning “nope, you’re not up to these heinously unrealistic standards yet; keep running, fatty!”

“Don’t stop until you’re proud.” I find this a little disingenuous. Part of me agrees with the idea of not just dialing in your workout and putting forth your best effort. When this quote is superimposed on top of a woman’s glistening six-pack abs, though, it says to me: Unless you look like this at the end of your workout, you shouldn’t be proud of your effort.
