I think many people confuse getting fit with getting skinny/thin which is not the same thing. I think being physically fit and being healthy go hand in hand. You can be healthy and not physically fit (for example, I have no blood pressure/cholesterol/diabetes/etc problems but I am overweight and out of shape). You can also be physically fit and not be healthy (for example, you can have an inherited disease/disorder that caused you to be unhealthy but still be at your ideal weight and in shape). To me, being fit means you are at a healthy weight, are functionally fit and strong while being healthy means that you are within the healthy limits for blood pressure/cholesterol/sugar etc and have no major illnesses.

Do you think there is a difference between "getting Fit" and "Getting healthy" ?

As a fat bodied person I see getting fit as loosing weight , Toning my body , raising my endurance. Getting healthy means fixing medical problems. I have been blessed not to have these. But hopefully i will never have them as i am getting fit finally. emoticon
