“If you eat well and exercise, your weight will take care of itself!”
What #Fitspo thinks it means: “Eating well and exercising will make you lose weight! If you aren’t losing weight, that means that you aren’t actually eating well or exercising enough! And if you are losing weight, then obviously you’re eating a healthy diet and exercising just the right amount!”
What is should actually mean: If you’re eating a filling, balanced diet while staying active, then your body is going settle into it’s healthiest weight. Maybe you’ll lose some pounds, maybe you’ll gain some, or maybe you’ll still be experiencing some health issues that influence your overall weight. But do the best you can and you’ll be fine. Weight is not the best way to gauge your fitness.
