When you start to get fit, you will have A LOT of haters crawl out of the woodwork. It's just a given. When you start to better yourself, people who do not have the drive to do the same will try to bring you down. The office asshole will say things to you like "Oh, she's too good to eat donuts..." or "You don't need to exercise, you're skinny enough already". People will say NOTHING if you load TONS of calories and saturated fat into your body. They won't even blink an EYE if you sign up for the local hot dog eating contest. But the second you pick up an apple instead of a bag of chips, suddenly errybody's got an opinion. At some point you just have to block out the haters and remember that you're doing this for YOU. (Warning: <--Sometimes the haters will even be your own family). You just have to remember that it says more about THEM and THEIR issues than yours. I have dealt with this many a time and typically years down the road, those haters are still unhealthy and miserable while the person who chose to make a change is living an INCREDIBLE life.
Stay strong, and keep going.
Hi! I'm Andrea Cummings. I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle that I can MAINTAIN and that still lets me feel like I'm not being deprived. I like to exercise, but I also love to eat (nachos!). My main focus is to be healthy, not skinny, and to help others do the same! I love Jesus, but I also say fuck a lot, so if you're offended, I may not be the gal for you.
