I don’t 100% agree with Ms. Wann but I have to say my agreement level is 97 to 98%. This is a great essay and well timed considering that we are now in the fitness “silly season” where World+Dog is trying to fulfill their New Year’s resolution of getting skinny. What if skinny didn’t exactly equal healthy? Science is showing us that maybe healthy should be the goal instead.
It’s quite clear that I will never be skinny. The name of this blog is about me: I will likely get less fat, but I will still be, according to society’s current standards, fat. My goal is to get healthy, not to get skinny. It should be yours too.
