Is it Better to Be Skinny or Fit?
Neither...it doesn't matter. Body image is such a struggle in our society. Raise your hand high in the air if you critique your body in the mirror regularly. Go ahead, raise your hand up, even if you are at a public computer. Because chances are, you have. We exercise, eat right, starve ourselves, or none of the above and just feel bad about our bodies. Why? Is it so we feel good or so that others will admire our bodies?
It shouldn't matter what other people think about your own body. You shouldn't exercise and eat right for someone else's benefit. Being a healthy weight, whatever that means to your own body, is important for your overall well being not vanity. It is a good habit to not compare your body with someone else's. We are all made from different molds! Why would your body look exactly like someone else's body? It is pointless to compare!
