I had to learn this the hard way. I am very thin naturally and I have used this as an excuse to eat whatever I want. I love sweets, junk food, and pretty much anything unhealthy. I do eat vegetables but I certainty don’t enjoy it at all. I don’t exercise much besides walking my dog for an hour in the morning, even that leaves me tired when I get back home.
Now, I know it sounds like an easy concept that being skinny does not equal being fit and healthy. I somehow convinced myself that since no one can see my protruding stomach and my insanely skinny arms they wont find out the truth about me! It came clear to me that I have a problem when I couldn’t carry my dog’s bulk dog food bag. It was quite pathetic, I had to get my mom to carry it instead. It was then that it kind of hit me that I am totally unfit. I lack any kind of muscle on my arms and legs.
I am lucky enough to have a fast metabolism but I’m sure it’s not going to be around for much longer. I really wish I had learned the habits of being healthy and exercising earlier but I sort of figured I had “free pass”. Boy, was I wrong!
I am sick and tired of being skinny fat. So, here is to me hoping that I will get back on that treadmill sometime this week…
