I’m confused and I’m becoming more and more confused as it approaches summer. The reason is other women.
It started in January with lots of people joining weight watchers, slimming world and of course gyms. Everyone wanting to shed their weight ready for the summer.
Why detox? Have fasting days? Watch how many calories you have? Miss out food groups? Not drink tap water? Eat more ‘power seeds’? Don’t eat seeds? Stay away from carbs? Have two days of protein only? Aghhhhh my brain wants to explode
When did eating a balanced diet and exercising stop being enough to keep us healthy? I am not criticising anyone I am genuinely confused, I missed the memo some where along the line saying that this is how us women are supposed to behave, who said it in the first place and why.
I’m not supposed to eat dairy, gluten or yeast as it makes me feel like crap and quite poorly. But with exception of the dairy I carry on eating it (mainly as I either can’t afford to eat the alternative or they just don’t taste nice or the other reason … I can’t be bothered to cook it)
I miss exercising as I like feeling healthy but not enough to go to the extremes that others go to, and certainly can’t afford to join a gym … So yes I’m confused … And maybe a little envious if gym people but mainly confused
….. Coming from someone recovering from an eating disorder it’s also possibly a confusing thing to have going around my brain too
