Healthy NOT Skinny (Day 14)

Healthy not Skinny

Scroll to the top of this page….see my tag line??

“Because Being Healthy Doesn’t Mean Being Thin.”

That is true.  There are plenty of thin people who aren’t healthy and plenty of healthy people who aren’t thin.

What’s more true is that if you make your choices bases upon the idea goal that you want to be healthier, happier, and more productive, then I believe you will surpass that goal  easily.

Getting “skinny” is, often, a result of your healthy living but it shouldn’t be your main goal.  There are so many other wonderful, beautiful outcomes of making healthy choices – better health (obviously), stronger muscles, more endurance, better heart health, increased circulation, lower cholesterol, etc. etc. etc.  The list goes on.

Don’t let the idea of thinness be your main priority – it’s a perfect way to set yourself up for failure.  Love yourself.  Embracing the body you have does not mean you have to stop continuing to better it – but be proud of who you are.  Loving yourself will give you the confidence to keep going (or get started!).

Love YOUR Body - not someone else's

I would love this caption more if we could get rid of “leaner” – so let’s just scratch that out, k?

  1. I totally agree with you!!
    Healthy strong etc before skinny…

    I find the meme/inspiration photo mildly ironic, the sentiment in the words is good, but the fact that is is put over the top of a very thin (albeit with abs) fitness model 🙂 it manages to promote and refute unhealthy body image all at the same time 😉

    • I know. It’s inspiring, yet uninspiring that so many fitspiration memes are loaded with super thin models. I’m trying to avoid them as much as I can (tho sometimes I just really like the caption and don’t want to lose it).
      Notice how I continue to promote healthy choices and lifestyles? I think that’s really what’s important. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 0 or a size 16 – as long as you’re healthy and making the right choices. ❤

      • You are absolutely right health first and generally if you get that right size will follow 🙂
        And yes, sometimes the captions are worth saving 🙂
