Official first weight in with the shred diet.
I hate when people post pictures of curvy women and caption it with things like “this is real beauty” because yes, curves are beautiful, but so is a slim figure. I’m tired of people saying that women can only be considered truly beautiful if they have full hips and a tummy. That is so contradictory because while there may be women who wish for a slimmer figure, there are also many who would kill for a fuller one. It makes me so angry that our society puts such an emphasis on comforting bigger women and censoring what we say to them in an effort to spare their feelings. Everyone always forgets about the skinny girls. It’s a crime to tell a fat person to lose weight or eat a salad, but no one ever thinks twice about telling a skinny girl to eat a cheese burger or to get some meat on her. Yes, being a size bigger than the average can be extremely hard on a persons self esteem, but being a size below can be just as damaging. There are so many girls who eat whatever they want but are just naturally very skinny. People always view this as a blessing but often, it’s a curse. A person can try their very best to put on weight, and still not gain a pound. How would you like it if someone came up to you and labeled you an anorexic just because of the way your body looks and your metabolism functions? Calling someone an anorexic can have the same damaging effects as calling someone fat and no one gets it. It is so hard to tell someone they are beautiful when a large part of the media promotes and sells skinny, and others take it to the opposite extreme and say “big is beautiful”. Big may be beautiful, but so is skinny. The media promotes a false image of beautiful because they so often show an unhealthy version of it. We need to stop judging and stop sugar coating everything because it’s getting us nowhere. Instead of saying one or the other is beautiful, we need to start telling people, especially young girls, that HEALTHY is beautiful. Because people can go to extremes to either gain or lose weight and both can be harmful to their health. You will never be unworthy if you have a little extra weight on your hips, nor will your value decrease based on the size of the gap between your legs. You are born with one body and will have it for the rest of your life, so instead of striving for a body that you weren’t born with, take care of yourself and love what’s been given to you. Big is beautiful, and skinny is beautiful. But regardless of your body shape or the number on the scale, Strive to be your best self and take care of YOU because it is YOUR body, not theirs. Healthy will always be beautiful.
These are my goals in no particular order
1. Save $5,000
2. Enter a bikini competition
3. Run a 5k
4. Become a vegetarian
5. Became a second class petty officer.
I know I should have post this last month but I was so caught up in spending time with my family and moving across the country.
So I made up my mind and I decide I’m going wait to became a vegetarian until I’m off the shred diet. Simply because I’m to lazy to look up substitute for chicken and turkey. Also I don’t want to just eat fish or salads every day for 6 weeks. I’m going to start on Saturday and stick with it. I just won’t be able to work out for the first week because I got my wisdom teeth pulled today.
So my scales has these little legs that suppose to work on the carpet turns out it doesn’t. Will at least I know why my scale wasn’t giving an accurate read. Anyways I’m starting my shred diet on Monday things didn’t work out the way I wanted last week. I’m actually pretty excited about living in California. I join a run club and a gym so I have no excuse not to work out on my own. I haven’t decide if I want to get a personal trainer yet. I going to get a bike before the summer tho hopefully nobody steals this one.
So it turns out my scale isn’t accurate at all. I actually gain 5 pounds since the last time I weighted myself.
