I may get some backlash or support for this one. Lets see , hear me out. Why did you lose weight?
The lie: For my self
The truth: Because of other people
For all those out there who CLAIM to be loosing weight for themselves, in essence it is for you but the other side to that is you did it because of others. Not for them but because of how and what others have said to you or have treated you.
This started because me and my sister had a major disagreement for why people decide to lose weight?
She said the politically correct answer: For my self.
I said the deep dark truth, I was tired of the looks , the judgement, the nasty comments and the plain ole way people treated me like some fat ass charity case that needed their damn pity. Yeah I said it.. what a freaking relief. Its a vein reason but that’s my reasoning and I think others may share the same reasons but are not ready to say it. And that is okay , I just said it for us.
Hard to swallow and chew but that is my truth. Yes I loss weight for my self but I won’t pedal that reason around as the SOLE reason I loss weight when the truth is some people drove me to reconsider how I took care of my body and take myself to the next level.
I’ll even be more transparent. I wanted to lose weight for the longest BUT THE MINUTE A CLOSE FRIEND DOUBTED I COULD, I WENT EVEN HARDER… because I felt I had something to prove. That was my own issue at the time but I’m saying what is the truth for me.
You weigh in… why did you lose weight or want to lose weigh? yeah …yeah for yourself (politically correct answer) but what are the other deep rooted reasons?
