Last night I came to a decision, it was time to remove myself from a FB page to which I belong. There was a part of me that wanted to make a difference. I wanted to show people life outside the program where you are calorie aware but don't have to count every morsel that goes in your mouth, that macros don't really matter that much and you don't have to beat yourself up for not looking like a fitness model. I think I was being naive because these programs are a competitive business ... I think even moreso than a bodybuilding competition and no-one wants to hear that someone is happy even with their imperfections ... they want to look like their idols whether they are famous fitness models or previous winners.
I grew weary of the undereating and overexercising and the angst over people's legs not leaning out or not having a 6 pack. It's well overdue but it's time to move on.
