This Group Is For Me
Wow - what a nice surprise to run across this group. I hate the assumptions people make on fit or "fat". First off, I have always been curvy and always been active. I was in every sport imaginable in high school and college, and my current passion is running. I run 10-20 k per day, 5 days per week. I can't stand still and I exercise at home all the time. I eat right, and have no real bad habits save for coffee. But I am not a stick, never been one, and never will be. I have a little waist and big hips and thighs and always will. I have never in my adult life been smaller than size 12. I get comments like "wow, with all that running you'd think you would be tiny," something snotty like that. Or get this, I am running and someone says, "wouldn't think you'd be able to do that.' I just want to punch them in their arrogant, know it all, skinny girl faces. I am way more fit than most women 1/2 my age and 1/2 my size. I am built for stamina. I am proud to say I have yet to find a man who wears me out - most of them can't keep up with me. My whole family is this way and they all live to past 85. The only thing I hate is my mommy tummy which I can't seem to get rid of since the kids. I've tried - believe me - it's a stubborn little thing. Other than that, I am pretty comfortable in my own skin. I have a blood pressure of 110/68 and a resting pulse of 58. So what if I am not a size 2?
