I was skinny-fat/athletic (Always active in sports, but ate horribly) growing up, then got really over-weight after having my daughter (60lbs+), now I’m fit and healthy. Most of my life, however, when I wasn’t over-weight, I was called a “Skinny B*tch!” to my face from both thin and heavier people. And not like there’s a nice way to say it, but it was told to me with rolled eyes and aggressive tones. Like those people were mad at me. And I am not the type of person to put anyone down for how they choose to live their lives (when it comes to their health at least). I was told I was “lucky” or it’s my “genetics” and they had every reason to be upset at me for it. I remember one particular instance when a girl got mad at me for “being skinny” because I was eating a salad loaded with veggies for lunch, and she was eating fried chicken….Really?! You’re mad at me for CHOOSING to be HEALTHY? Not once did I say anything to her, or even smirk at what she was eating. I see a lot of women (and men do this too), quickly put down a fitness enthusiast for looking the way they WANT to look like, but feel … I want to say, threatened. Correct me if I’m wrong, or let me know what it is that you’re feeling. Putting someone else down isn’t going to change your situation, and it’s only going to temporarily make you feel better, or temporarily distract you from your real issues.
Now, I can only speak for myself here, because only I know my heart and thoughts, and I never post or say anything that intentionally puts people down who aren’t at the health level they want to be. I worked so hard and changed everything I knew growing up about eating. So it isn’t genetics, or the way I was raised, or luck. It was a CHOICE. I decided I WANTED to change, so I did. It’s POSSIBLE. YOU CAN start NOW. No matter how old or young, what background you have, or what level of fitness you are at now. It’s possible to live the life YOU want ❤
I’m working on my own programs at the moment (finally ????. Lol) But check out Frank Medrano body weight workouts on his site if you’re wanting to make a change for yourself and don’t know where to start. I have the privilege of seeing some amazing transformations that it has done and it has inspired me to create my own to help anyone
