Healthy not thin
by: Anonymous

Hello Sweatheart,

Please remember that being thin isn't what it's all about. Healthy is way more important. If you are tired and weak, you are not healthy. Your body will feel it's best when your weight is where it should be. When I was in highschool and a cheerleader, I was constently trying to loose weight. I was so weak at one point I passed out on the track. Once I made the decision to start eating healthy, I felt so much better. I was more energetic, felt better about myself and was a much better cheerleader. Everyone around me knew that I was happier. About 3 years ago, I was told I was about 30 pounds over weight for my age and height. To loose a couple of pounds for my health, I stopped drinking anything but water and I cut my portion sizes in half. I still took my vitamins and made sure I was active. Not a major life change but in about 3 months, I dropped 20 pounds. Just remember that the body your in is just a vessel. What matters is what is inside. Get yourself happy and don't worry what others think. Love yourself because you know God loves you. It will show and everyone will know you are happy. Weak is not good. Get strong. Love you, NService4God

Hey Hun,

I know that thin may seem really appealing to you right now. But I will tell you from experience that it will NOT make you happy. In fact, when I was in the depth of my eating disorder I was so depressed and in a very dark place. When I started to feed my body the fuel in needed I felt so much better.

When I gave up dieting I felt an amazing sense of freedom. My head was clear, I was able to be more present in conversations, and my depression practically disappeared. And you know what? I actually LOOKED better. You see, part of losing weight that some people don’t realize is your hair thins and your skin and nails look dull and lifeless. When I gave up starving I literally glowed!

I would encourage you to put your focus on eating a good amount of healthy food to nourish your body. Let you body be at the weight it was meant to be.

Keep the words of the bible in mind:
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Mathew 6:25-27

I know what you are thinking. Excersize doesn't always work. But I do know that it works for me. I stopped eating when I was bored and now only eat when I am hungry. I'm not hungry as often now, and when I'm bored I don't even think of food. But the biggest thing that has helped me lose weight is a new excersize video by Billy Banks: Tae Bo T3. It's tough, but I started noticing results in less then a week.

Thank you!

Hello..I am truly in the same position as you. I am thin and my mind really wants me to be healthy and to nourish my body would mean eating more than I think I can..but I am really just too weak to get to the gym I actually drive there and sit in my car and try to muster the strength to get in 15 mn of healthy cardio not over doing it just some healthy movement. This is such a vicious battle, and I just wanted to relate to someone else out there. Thanks.

I think you should talk to a professional like a dietician because you could possibly have an eating disorder. Good luck and hope you feel better!
