Let’s clear something up:
FIT vs SKINNY
A lot 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 someone else was doing (i.e starving themselves).
Misinformation and myths surround a lean physique, and they dwell on the other person’s stats like body fat/weight, etc.
This is 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!
