I posted a picture on Instagram of my McDonalds breakfast and made the comment that I'm going back to the gym ASAP. I received an e-mail from some girl I don't know. She explained to me that the gym isn't going to make a difference unless I change my eating habits and that I'm never going to see weight loss results unless I make a lifestyle change. She also informed me that simply talking about going back to the gym isn't going to do anything. She ended the e-mail by telling me she's willing to give me advice and tips if I was actually serious. Maybe I read it wrong, but it came off so rude.
First of all, I don't think I'm fat at all. Sometimes when I post a picture of unhealthy food or a lot of food I stupidly joke and say I'm being a fatty or something along those lines. Or if I'm wearing a flowy shirt sometimes I'm guilty of making a comment about how it makes me look pregnant. Let's be honest, some of those shirts can look that way. I'm going to remind myself not to make those comments anymore anymore because I guess people think I'm being serious or that I think I'm fat. I'm 120 pounds, if I think I'm fat or need to lose weight then I need some serious help.
I'm not bothered by the e-mail anymore. Not worth worrying about. However, I am motivated to get back in shape. I'd much rather people make comments about how fit I am than how skinny I am. Plus, working out makes me feel so much better about myself. So it's time to finally get serious about this!
