No weight update today but I just want to dispel a personal myth that I have (I’ve also heard others speak on this)…the complaint is that, skinny people just naturally have a lower set weight point/high metabolism.
I guess that is true to some degree but my personal observation of skinny friends, my skinny roomate (that I had under a microscope) and my workmates is that: they naturally restrict what they choose to eat ALL THE TIME. They say no to dessert, they make healthy choices (green salad for lunch), choose fruit as a snack. They have the same voices that urge other, poorer health choices…but over a lifetime have built healthy HABITS that make it easier to choose the right stuff.
I notice that in my new environment at work. All the ladies are pretty slender and I notice they are all very careful about making choices for better health. It is intersting to compare thier lunch to mine and what they order at a restaurant to what I order.
…so yeah….I’m left with fewer and fewer excuses.
