I have never been skinny and lean. I have always braced myself the way I am. Happy go lucky, foodie, and having a healthy weight. In my growing years, through my college, I was petrified to see girls so skinny around me. They were the so called style icons. But eventually they ended up looking weak.
I used to think, is it worth loosing weight and going down to size zero. But then I realized its more important to feel fit, than being skinny.
But for the past one year, I have seen a welcoming change. Today when I stop by and see the college crowd around, I see that the girls are no longer skeletons like thin. They look healthy by the weight. They look good and relieved. N hey, I also see them as as style icons in their group.
It feels so good to see the younger crowd maintaining a good and healthy weight. They are no longer ruled by the size zero concept. I see them working out, but not to loose weight, its more for being fit and healthy. They eat what they like. Unlike years ago when eating salads was considered wow, and eating sandwiches was considered omg. I think this change should stay. After all, a healthy body is a secret to a healthy mind.
