I hear girls (and creepy uncles, and overbearing mothers) saying things like “I’m just going to try to eat a little healthier” when they’re really just trying to lose 5 lbs; or “Oh Honey! You look so healthy!” when they really just noticed you’ve lost weight. Or how about “I’ll have the egg white omelette.... I’m trying to be healthy.”
Can we GET REAL for a sec?
You’re not trying to “get healthy” you’re trying to get skinny, and you may or may not be going about it in a healthy way.
Don’t kid yourself. Having half a cup of cottage cheese and black coffee for breakfast is NOT what your body wants. And don’t get me started on women who want to “get healthy” by drinking Diet Coke. Or my personal favorite: when they eat salads all day, and then go binge-drink and chain smoke the following night. “I’m trying to get healthy.”
Shut the fuck up. No You’re Not.
