As my lifestyle change progresses and the pounds continue to shed, I’ve been noticing an increase in the amount of direct messages, Facebook messages, and comments I receive. While none of them have been negative ( so far) I find a lot of them offensive. I feel like today we live in a world that has become accustomed to the ” quick fix”, a fast approach of doing things that may seem otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain. I’ve come to this realization based on the constant questions I get when approached about my weightloss. ” You look so good, did you get surgery”? I’ve gotten this question so many times and it’s caused me to now be a little defensive when it comes to protecting my hard work.
Not everyone turns to a ” quick fix”. Some people evaluate a situation before acting on it and determine if the desired outcome is attainable. Our society is so brainwashed, we see the endless amounts of plastic surgery via social media and seek that instead of picking up a book to ready about how to get the body you want. Not to say there is anything wrong with getting surgery. I just don’t think it should be your first choice when deciding to lose weight. You should always exhaust all of your options. I don’t think I was even a candidate for a weightloss surgery. I was 220 lbs, although I was big I was a regular fat girl with horrible diet and exercise habits but no immediate health risks. Idk. I just wanted to get some things off my chest.
