The Lean Physique And Why It’s Dangerous
Not too long ago, I spent the day at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). We females totaled 5. Of our small group, 2 of us are going active duty in 2014, while the other candidates were going into the Reserve. I was the only mother candidate and I was 7 years senior to the other gal’s.
For some time now, I’ve had a somewhat shallow ideal. If it were possible to get my hands on a genie, click my heels together 3 times, or take a magic diet pill *gasp!* I would love to be lean. Lean like bikini fitness competitors are on stage after weeks of a carefully strategized diet and exercise regiment.
I know it’s possible to achieve that sort of physical form. I got determined after my second pregnancy and burned the results of neglect and comfort eating – nearly 40 lbs worth!
The question is… what do I really want? I know I’m not in search of a magical number. I enjoy eating and disregard the idea of “dieting”. I think I’m a sensible person. I recommend being physically fit and healthy… but why do I feel like I should aspire to this?
I stumbled onto this post this morning. Read it.
