30 Day Blog Challenge:: Day 3

Friday, June 15, 2012

Thinspiration is risky business, isn't it? I mean, you see it on pinterest. Young girls, like my 14 year old niece, post pro-ana pictures, glorifying eating ice all day because food makes you fat.

It's so sad. And it's something that makes my heart break. It's like comparing my behind the scenes bloopers to someone else's highlight reel.

Do I want legs and abs like this?

You bet.

But that's not why I want to lose weight.

No no no.

It's this picture that makes me want to shed some kilos.

    I love your thinspiration. I am very much single and nowhere near motherhood, but it is always in the back of my mind that if that time comes for me when I am married and all that good stuff that I want to be healthy so that I am *able* to do that. Instead of waiting until years down the road and then finding out my weight is holding me back from it. That is such an outstanding reason to do this. :D

    emoticon Have faith and keep working at it and hopefully it will happen. it did for me...I was about to start fertility treatment after years of trying and with my PCOS. I lost a lot of weight and suddenly became pregnant. I was 34 at the time and had been told it was almost impossible for me. Never give up emoticon
