I mean, I'm sitting in a group of 5 or 6 people and I am the only person who has any interest in eating healthy food and living a healthy lifestyle. Something about that just isn't right. I shouldn't be an oddity for wanting to be healthy.
I really wish being healthy was the norm in our society and eating garbage was frowned upon but this isn't the case at all. If I were to walk down the street eating a hamburger or a big slice of pizza no one would look twice at me or think it was strange. If I were walking down the street eating a stick of celery or a big carrot I bet I'd get some funny looks. Why is that?
Also, I find it sad that seeing a healthy, fit person (outside of the gym) is a rarity. Maybe I'm not hanging out in the right places but I've noticed that the number of fit people are greatly outnumbered by the number of overweight or obese people. What is happening to people?
You know what the answer is? They just don't care. They think it's normal to eat crappy processed fast food and now being overweight and obese is actually the norm. People don't feel happy or healthy when they are overweight or obese yet they don't care to make a change. Maybe the thought of effort is just too overwhelming for some people. That's called lazy. Listen to this...you are too lazy to be healthy. Repeat previous statement and analyze. Fack...that is the epitimy of laziness. It's like you'd rather frown than smile because frowning is less effort.
That's one reason why I love SP. There are so many people on this site who actually want to make a difference in their lives and be healthy. And I hope that their "Abnormality" is spreading to those around them so that they can have happy, healthy people around them.
I hope one day I'll be surrounded by healthy people and living like this will be the norm. I doubt I'll see that day in my lifetime so all I can do is prepare my boys and teach them the right way to eat and live.
Spread the spark people and surround yourself with happy, healthy people.
