When I started reading healthy blogs that were outside of my little
Tumblr world, I was honestly surprised to see how happy they all were.
Clearly, these ladies were faking it.
I mean, yeah, I am the kind of person whose baseline happiness is
luckily higher than most peopleâ€™s. But Iâ€™m also a twenty-something
who works in media in New York. Which means Iâ€™m pretty cynical. So,
no way these ladies were really that happy.
When you lose weight, you usually get happier. Your clothes fit
better, youâ€™re getting all those endorphins. Youâ€™re getting
complimented by everyone you know.
But letâ€™s be honest here. If you gained weight, it was probably
covering up somewhere else in your life where you were unhappy. You
were eating your feelings. Those feelings donâ€™t always disappear when
you lose weight.
