"You’re so lucky you’re skinny"

I get told this so often, and it makes me so mad.
I am not lucky that I’m skinny. Want a list why? I’ll make you a list.

  1. I work out at least 3 times a week
  2. I eat well, making sure my diet is nutritious and healthy
  3. I don’t have fizzy drinks, we don’t even keep them in the house
  4. I avoid caffeine and energy drinks
  5. If I have the option, I walk to wherever I need to go
  6. I allow myself sweets/chocolate/cake but only in moderation and I don’t have big portions
  7. I drink a lot of tea
  8. I drink even more water than tea
  9. I don’t eat fast food if I can help it, and when I do I go with the healthy alternative
  10. I make sure to get at least 7 hours sleep every night
  11. I meditate and have personal time away from technology for at least half an hour every day
  12. I try not to bottle up my feelings
  13. I eat constant small portions as opposed to 3 big meals
  14. When I snack, it’s on nuts and fruit. Not chips and chocolate
  15. I stretch on days that I don’t work out
  16. I always do a little bit more than I believe I can actually do

So no. I am not lucky that I am skinny. I work hard to stay fit and healthy.
