I am a fairly open minded person, particularly when it comes to peoples’ choices. I don’t judge and I accept that everyone has their own journey in life. I try my hardest when I can’t relate, to at least understand their perspective and if I can’t understand, then I simply accept that our views may differ and it is their choice, and not for me to offer my opinion on.
But what I cannot understand and struggle to relate to is when I hear people say that is it “unhealthy” to seek a healthy lifestyle. Or that someone is being “unhealthy” or “obsessive” in actually taking control of their lives and making positive changes. .
Perhaps it is that people need to be better educated in what a ‘healthy’ lifestyle actually involves and what it actually requires. Sure there are the more serious end in comp prep when you’re a few weeks from stage and there are restrictions on what you can and can’t do, but I fail to see how eating clean, taking control of when, what & how you eat and when you exercise is in anyway a bad thing. 🤔🙄
Changing your life to be more healthy, or choosing to lead a more healthy lifestyle is not about being restrictive, it is about making good choices. And I won’t ever understand anyone that discourages others or forces negative opinions about someones choice to lose weight, get fit and be healthy. .
Really, when it comes down to it, if they can't support your choices or try to understand your reasons.... then simply focus on what lays ahead & not behind, do you, & wait.... maybe they will come around☝🏽👌🏽
