I recently saw someone who has a very nice body (even after children) and I made a comment about wishing I was thinner and toned. The comment made back to me was, "You can be if you put your mind to it." Um, okay. Yes, I COULD eat less and try to exercise more but "just putting my mind to it" isn't going to work. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive but I feel like a comment like that makes it sound like I don't WANT to be thinner and that I put my mind to being fat. WHATEVER!
I guess I'll go "put my mind to it" and see if I can drop 20 lbs!
