Just a Thought
Something's wrong with the world today I don't know what it is.....Haha sorry had that stuck in my head. Anyways; Do you ever think we put to much pressure on little girls to be thin and perfect? I know when I was growing up I was a little chunky and I never thought twice about it until I was made fun of almost everyday because of it. At my heaviest in middle school I was 5'2" and 134 lbs, nothing crazy, but everyday I would go to school and my classmates would make fun of me. So I decided it was time I do something about this I could take the name calling. I started running got down to like a size 2 you know those skinny girls, but yet I never really looked at myself as skinny. I have struggle with this ever since middle school. As soon as I gain a few pounds I just feel and think I look fat, could this be because all I ever saw as a role models were tall overly skinny models? I will workout for months and then all of the sudden I will get into a rut were I just stop working out. I feel guilty almost everyday when I get up and just don't take the half hour for a workout. Course then again maybe I'm just not happy with my body and I need to figure that out, but I know the root of my problem comes from my childhood. Now days this would seem more common as a lot more people of over weight, end result over weight children who get little to no exercise. At least my mom always new I was getting exercise as we were always outside playing. Now days kids spend to much time in front of the t.v., computer and video games. Wow I just totally jumped subjects but these issues are linked together and we as parents have to teach are kids how to live a happy, healthy active lifestyle, which in the long run will only benefit them. That's all for now!
