I was always plenty thin all through school. I put on some weight in 8th grade and really fell apart after I stopped marching band in college. I could out eat the guys, but don't all little girls want to be thin and pretty? So, what were some of the things I did right? I thought thin. Like all the time that I wasn't actively doing something else I was paying attention to how I hold myself. Waiting in line in the lunch room? Stand with your weight off your heels, just slightly on your toes. Riding to school in the car? Kept my tummy tensed. Walking to my locker I would try to glide along and balance while walking so I didn't stomp along. Some thing I probably shouldn't have done so much were take the stairs leaping two or three at a time, but it's hard to tell someone young to be nicer to their knees. And there is nothing keeping me from thinking thin again. That can be a lot of work out in the little moments of the day!
