My parents are obsessed with weight. Always have been. I grew up watching and listening to them focus on it. My dad thinks every woman should be skinny. My mom went on and off diets my entire life to try and be that skinny woman.
Me? I was stickly little girl, but that didn’t last long. As I got older I learned I had my mother’s genes. We weren’t naturally thin and had to work at it. At one point my parents decided I wasn’t working well enough at it and sent me to Fat School. That probably wasn’t the official name, but it was a program for children to lose weight. I was the thinnest one there. Actually, I don’t remember myself being fat at all as a kid. I knew I wasn’t a slim jim, but there were lots of peers who I would have called fat and I wasn’t in that category. Was I?
In high school I was an active tennis player. In college I walked miles each day to classes. I stayed in shape for many years.
I got married and had kids. I wasn’t active anymore. I was busy. I just didn’t care and the weight came on. Even though I could see my parents eyes on me and occasionally hear their voices, ‘we are worried about you,’ I shrugged it off. I was fine with who I was. I sure wasn’t going to lose weight for them or anyone else in society.
Then I started to care. Why? Because I want to BE Healthy! I want to Teach My Kids how to BE Healthy! It isn’t about how I LOOK. It’s about how I FEEL! It’s for MY family!
