As previously said, I’ve always wanted to blog about fashion. I thought it was my only true and huge passion, the only one I could really write about. But now, I know that belief was totally false.
Everything needs a reason and the one for writing on a totally different topic is my thinking of fitness as a huge part of the fashion world. Why is that? Just look at models and you’ll get your answer.
But I don’t want to talk about this part of the Industry because we all know what’s happening over there. I just believe in this healthy lifestyle and I really want to share my knowledge with whoever is interested.
To begin this serie, my idea was to tell you where I was coming from. It is not much of a big story, but I guess it’s always interesting to know where a person is coming from.
I have been skinny my entire life..
..and I have hated it. I was always jealous of those girls who did not have that - so appreciated - thigh gap. I did not want to have toothpick-like arms. But that’s what I had, no matter how much food I was eating. Yes, it’s a good thing and I know that so much people envy me for that. Trust me, I am not bragging. Because do you know what this metabolism did for me? Making my body so unhealthy I couldn’t exercise or practice a sport without getting out of breath in less than a minutes.
I did not really see the point in keeping myself from eating all the junk I liked because it did not affect my body. It wasn’t changing so I thought it was impossible for me to be out of shape. I looked good in clothes so for me, there was absolutely no point in changing my diet – note that I’m 17.
I have been hating my body for as long as I can remember..
..because even if I looked okay fully dressed up, I couldn’t bear the thought of wearing shorts and tee shirts, let alone going to the pool – when I was about 13-15: the mocking me for my body had started. I honestly did not think I had any power over my appearance because I simply did not gain any weight.
But I kept complaining about my hatred towards my body. And then, one day, I just thought it was time to stop complaining and start acting. I guess it had something to do with my break up that happened a month before.
That day was exacly a year ago..
..and it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Up to now, I’ve gave up twice, changed my goals multiple time and totally fell off track thrice.
Through that year, I’ve developped this envy of talking to people about the idea of a healthy lifestyle. It may sound hypocrit because, let’s face it, I have a hard time following my diet, but I am trying as much as I humanly can.
I do hope that through this serie, at least one of you will get inspired enough to try and change your life around.
To the next time,
