When I decided that I was really going to take my body back and get it to where I feel it should be, I met a lot of opposition from my friends. I didn't understand it. Just because I'm already small I can't want to work out and eat healthy? So if I was fat or obese you wouldn't care that I want to change? I'm confused. How about I don't want to be fat, and I will do whatever I need to do to avoid that. So what I watch what I eat and count calories and crave cardio and working out.
My friends laugh at me when I say "I'm not on a diet, I've made a food lifestyle change". They can laugh but it's true. I have had to change my eating habits for good. I simply cannot do the things that I used to do and think that I will be able to maintain a healthy weight. I'm approaching 27 and I refuse to be the woman in her 30s or 40s crying and complaining that I can't get my body to look the way I want it to look, or have high cholesterol or high blood pressure because I didn't change a few things in my 20s. Let's be real, I was a Public and Community Health major in undergrad, I've taken anatomy and physiology and a whole host of other classes where I know better about how to treat my body and the adverse affects of not taking care of your body. I'd be stupid not to be conscious of the things I consume and how I treat my body.
You can be fat, miserable and unhealthy if you want to...I won't be joining you. #hairflip
