Strength Out “Weighs” Skinny

Put your body to work….skip the surgeries!

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post that touched on “Botched,” one of my favorite shows. I’m beyond hooked and happy that I stumbled upon this show.

A few years ago, I was unsatisfied with my body. I thought my gluteus maximus was too big, my breast too small, waist not narrow enough, and while we’re at it, let’s throw in the want to have a flatter stomach. But honey chile, after watching this show I have changed my mind.

How many of you are guilty of thinking that a simple surgery will make you happy and solve all your problems?

If you said yes, then you aren’t alone. However, ask yourself this.

Would you commit to having surgery knowing that you would then have to have several more to fix whatever that doctor botched up?

Our bodies can only take so much, and having surgery after surgery isn’t a safe way to go. Why put your body through unnecessary trauma. Yes, sure, many surgeries go well, but thousands upon thousands don’t go smoothly. And if you happen to catch a couple of episodes of Botched, you’ll see what I mean.

Women and Men appear on Botched because the majority of them were chasing after one thing. They are trying to look good!

I understand their desperation to look good and willingness to put their body through hell and back to get what they want. However, I see now that going under the knife isn’t the way to go. And I’m glad it didn’t take me having a botched-up surgery to get to this point.

I like so many others, want to look BUT above all I want to feel good!

When we seek to look good, we forget about the feeling good part. Ughhhhh, I’m not too fond of that because feeling good means we are eating well, getting enough sleep, drinking water, and taking care of our cardiovascular system. We are pushing our bodies to be strong. And in return, we will live longer, healthier lives. The need to look good sometimes means we are making our body SUFFER so we can be a particular size.

I use to work out to look good and seek to have surgeries to assist me. However, the satisfaction I get from putting work in is unmeasurable. I smile every time I bite into my sweet potato, steak, chicken, fish, bison, spinach, and a plethora of other goodies because I know I’m getting strong. With every bite, I’m healing the body I put through hell and back while searching for skinny and not strength.

Cheers to a new day and hopes that more folks will see; STRENGTH OUT “WEIGHS” THE NEED TO BE SKINNY!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. I really enjoy watching Botched, too, but wonder why some of the would be patients are referred to a psychiatrist before altering their body. When I was about 40. I weighed 200 lbs – it took years of hard work to get slimmer and fitter.
