It really comes down to each individual person. There are many people I know who are perfectly happy and confident no matter what their weight is, and then there are others I know who feel unhappy and unhealthy even though they are viewed as “skinny” in the eyes of the world.
Getting healthy or getting fit does not mean you have to be skinny. And being skinny does not mean you are healthy or fit.
I have noticed a huge difference in who I am as a person since getting active and eating well. A couple of winter’s ago I was going through a pretty rough patch. I didn’t want to do anything or see anyone, I didn’t like myself and was’t comfortable in my body, I wasn’t confident or happy, and unfortunately that showed in everything I did.
I decided to make a change. It was a slow process at first, but looking back I am so glad I took those really hard first few steps.
Now I love encouraging people around me is to feel and be the best versions of THEMSELVES! Some want to lose weight, some want to gain weight. Some just want to lower cholesterol or decrease the risk of heart disease. I am not promoting “skinny” nor am I saying you have to fit into a certain mold. I am promoting happy, healthy, and feeling good, and I am sharing something that I am super passionate about because I have first hand experience in how much of a difference it has made for me (mentally, physically, and emotionally).
It is always so much easier to make the necessary changes when you have supportive and uplifting people around you. That is what helped me, and now I want to give back to anyone who wants or needs that support and encouragement themselves.
