Here is my advice: if you’re trying to get fit or healthy or whatever for purely physical/appearance/attractiveness reasons - it is going to be super difficult to keep up with your goals. I’m not saying wanting to look good is wrong, because I would be lying if I said that I don’t want to feel confident when I look in the mirror. But I am also keenly aware that if I boil everything down to my appearance, especially fitness wise, then that isn’t going to keep me motivated in the long run. Other people might disagree with me, and that is fine, but I truly believe that if you want to stay determined and focused - then making those changes to better yourself overall (mentally, emotionally, and physically) is going to be far more effective than trying to get skinny so boys will think you’re hot.
This post has been triggered by the supposedly ~motivating images~ floating around on Tumblr, spewing shit like “train so he’ll think you’re hot” or “get skinny so he’s proud to be with you”. Ugh. No.
So, yes train for a rocking hot bod. But do it for yourself. And do it because - along with making you look good - it also makes you stronger, faster, happier, healthier on the inside, gives you self-belief in your abilities, etc. They are also really important reasons.
