I ate 2500 calories today, I loosely tracked just out of curiousity, and I feel really bad for eating that much. it was all healthy food but I feel bad :/
What do you want me to say? I honestly don’t understand these messages, sorry but I really don’t.
We all know what I’m going to say.. Food is fuel, it keeps you alive and provides your body with energy and nutrients. Just eat.
Hi, I really wanna try losing weight and also just getting healthy and fit. I feel like I've let myself slide the last couple years, but I don't know how to start or get the motivation to start. I'm trying to let go of embarrassment to even admit I wanna lose weight. idk, I just like your blog, and wanted advice instead of freaking out and going for fads or something stupid. Also, is it bad to want to do it cos I dont like my body. I try to be body positive and all, but I want to be healthy
hey there! so sorry for getting back to you so late. i can relate to feeling like we’ve let ourselves slide. something that has helped me throughout this journey is owning & accepting where i am at. if i let myself slide, then that is my truth. i don’t let myself dwell on it, i move forward.
it is hard when we feel negative towards our bodies, & i’m sorry that you feel that way! i’ve been there, & it is hard to get out of that negative mindset/way of living. i want you to know that you can break away from that, & put your attitude towards somethings greater & more positive. i try to love my body as much as i can, which means feeding it nutritious foods, exercising regularly, meditating, & much more!
YOU have the ability to change where you are at. YOU have the power to move forward in your life & change your lifestyle. YOU have the strength to get through this, conquer your insecurities, & further use your experiences to help others. YOU can and will get through this.
i hope this helps. i believe that you can get through anything if you put your mind to it. when it gets hard- reach out. reach out like you did here, or to a friend & or someone you trust. YOU CAN DO THIS!!
If you’re overweight and you’re eating healthy food, people will not take you seriously (because they expect that eating healthy food means you should have the perfect “fitness” body already, and if you don’t have it yet, clearly you haven’t succeeded or some shit).
If you’re skinny and eating healthy, people will be “concerned” for you because you need to gain weight.
If you’re overweight and you have a treat (that you counted in your macros and calories) or even a cheat meal that you’re aware of, they’ll ask if you’re sure you should be eating that… because won’t one meal hinder your weight loss? (and if you previously felt good about eating it because you know life is about balance, you begin to feel skeptical).
If you’re skinny and you work out, they will tell you that you don’t need to… because exercise is only for weight loss, apparently, and not strength.
If you’re overweight and you work out, people will not take you seriously (see first point) and they will always try to correct you because they will assume you don’t know what you’re doing.
tldr; people don’t know your goals, they don’t know your progress and they don’t know your body. You will be judged whether you choose to go for that salad or if treat yourself and go with the fries. You will be judged whether you’ve just started your weight loss journey or are ¾ of the way there. You will be judged whether you want to lose weight or if you’re happy with the way you are. trust your body and your goals, and do it for yourself x
