Skinny genes and why I rock them

I’ve never been interested in diets, food fads, super leaves and cutting out carbs.

This is probably because I was gifted with the skinny gene from birth. Although, I’ve had people tell me “it doesn’t last” so I guess I’ll let you know in  a few years time.

I know, you’re thinking I’ve got to be kidding and can I just shut up and go back to eating my bowl of carbs that I wipe up with carbs (spaghetti and garlic bread). Hear me out as it’s often a case of “we all want what we don’t have”. I’ve had strangers say to my face that I’m too skinny. One lady even proceeded to point at the conveyer belt in the supermarket and remark “that won’t fill you up” to a banana that I wanted to eat after my lunch that I hadn’t bought yet. And guys who tell me that if I worked out with them I could have an amazing body. That they know how much I should eat and how they would like to see me. Instead of just linking me the way I am.

Then you get it at work from girls and it’s sometimes just a look that makes you feel uncomfortable. Often saying “your so skinny” to someone can be on the same level as “you’re so fat”. I try to build more muscle and eat more because I’d love to have a butt and bigger boobs and amazing legs but my body just doesn’t run that way.

That’s why women shouldn’t judge each other, as they say when you point the finger there is always three pointing back at you.
