Women, Weight, and Body Image

9 May

Alright….so this post is aaaallll about women. Now just to clear the air, I am not about to rant about how hard it is for women to lose weight or how unfair it is that men can lose weight faster blah blah blah. In fact, I could care less about any of that. What I do want to focus on is the way we as women treat each other.

In a previous post I mentioned the different type of people you have at th gym. Well in this one we’re going to focus on the different types of women…..you’ve got the show off( wears only sports bra and too tight spandex shorts), insecure woman( she is so worried about what others think of her body she doesn’t even like going to the gym) normal/nonchalant (just in the gym with her music blasting trying to get her work out in before she gets the day going, super health conscious), and the beast( working out is her life, she’s probably trying to be a body builder), and you can’t forget the “know nothing” woman. And when I say that I don’t mean to question anyone’s level of intelligence, I mean she’s the type of woman to take up tons of time trying to figure out how to use a piece of equipment instead of just asking before hand like come on miss please just move already! Anyway that’s just a quick description of some of the type if women in the gym.

Ok, to the meat of the matter. I’ve actually been working on this piece for a minute because I really wanted to make sure I got my point across. I’ve really noticed (even more) since going away to school that we as women tear each other down like it’s nobodies business. (pause for the gasps on disbelief) yes we as women tend to pull each other down just so we can get ahead. So to focus on women in the gym since this is a blog about fitness, I can’t seem to grasp why it is we have faces that look like we’ve been sucking on lemons. For example, you see the “show off” walk in and you’re immediately turned off. Don’t get me wrong I can understand the envy you may feel because she comes into the gym everyday without ever hardly breaking a sweat and still has a body that looks like it was carved by angels…..well guess what SUCK IT IP! Yeah, I said it! We aren’t all built the same so if you know you have to “sweat like a pig to look like a fox” do what you have to do, being mad at her or discussing her with your workout partner is not going to change the fact that you still have to leave it all in the gym to get the results you want.

I’m going leave the woman thing along because I think y’all get my point but one other thing I’d like to address about the example I have previously…..you should consider what you are eating. The “show off” may only do light workouts everyday but her eating habits are probably cleaner than a hospital room so just because she’s not making the “sacrifices” you think are necessary in the gym, you have no idea what she does at home and that’s her business.
Well enough about that I don’t care to say too much more about this cause I’ll get aggravated but let me know what y’all think and as always….
Stay Sweet,
KL
