Skinny VS Fit
Let's clear something up:
FIT vs SKINNY
Alot of people confuse my images (and every other 'fit' chick) with being 'skinny' this is a term that I try really hard to distance from myself as
I am strong, I am lean and I am FIT.
I am not 'skinny';
The definition of skinny is frail, weak or 'unattractively thin'
'In good health, especially because of regular physical exercise.'
Comments range from telling me to eat a burger (which I make no secret that grill'd is our go to takeaway!) right through to diagnosing me with an illness.
I want to educate people- the difference is HUGE and by changing this stigma I KNOW that I can help a lot of people who think that losing fat IS by starving themselves as all these uneducated comments suggest- which is so far from the truth!
In my case, I am the strongest I have ever been, I FEEL so energetic, I achieve so much in my days, I have amazing sleep at night times, my hair is thick, my skin is clear and I am fit.
None of these statements is how you would describe a person with an ED.
I work behind the scenes with a lot of girls who suffer with EDs and within each individual story is the same message- they compared themselves to what they THOUGHT some else was doing (ie starving themselves), misinformation and myths surrounding a lean physique or dwelling on the other persons stats- bodyfat/weight etc (hence why I never give these figure out to the public regardless of conditioning)
The reason that a lot of young people THINK that they only way to lose body fat is to starve themselves has a lot to do with these constant remarks and the false stigma surrounding a fitness chicks lean physique.
This is SO incorrect!
Love your bodies, fuel your body and workout because it makes you FEEL great, fit and strong- not because you hate the way you look.
It is not a punishment, don't associate it that way.
Aim to be FIT, not skinny!
